Ms. Donner will share highlights of the sights and sounds (actual music taped at each!) of Carnaval in Venice; Rio de Janeiro, Port of Spain, Trinidad; Tenerife, Canary Islands; and New Orleans which are on display in one of the Museum's liveliest exhibitions ever.In addition to the talk, there will be a screening of a fascinating and dynamic video of the festivities in each of the exhibition's eight regions and twenty-two more, by award-winning travel photojournalist, Robert Jerome.
