Only one week left to see Allentown Art Museum’s current exhibit, Toulouse-Lautrec and His World. The exhibit closes on September 1, 2013.
 This popular exhibition is on loan from the collection of the Herakleidon Museum in Athens, Greece, and focuses on the art and life of one of the most fascinating artists and personalities of the Belle Époque (Beautiful Era) in France, which dates from the late nineteenth century through World War I. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec lived in Paris during this colorful time of cabarets and cafés, and he captured its famous singers, actors, and other characters in his highly celebrated posters, prints, and sketches.
You might also check out Mythological Creatures in Textiles and The Armory Show: A Centennial Tribute (both at the museum through 11/17/2013). The Allentown Art Museum, 31 N 5th Street,  has extended its regular Wednesday through Sunday hours to include Tuesdays in August (11 am – 4 pm). On Friday, August 30 and Saturday, August 31, the Museum will remain open until 7 p.m.
