“Virtual Visit of MUDAM”
Tuesday, October 24, 2023 at 11 AM CT
This talk takes you on a virtual tour of Luxembourg’s art scene through the exhibits and collections of MUDAM- the Contemporary Art Museum of Luxembourg. MUDAM Executive Director Bettina Steinbrügge will give an overview of the museum, discussing its current exhibits and collections.
“History Talk: The Early Years of Luxembourg”
Friday, November 3, 2023 at 12 PM CT
Typical history lessons only focus on the past 200 years, yet the name/word ‘Luxembourg’ is found in text as early as 963AD. Dive deep into Luxembourg’s rich history with LACS board member Marc Klein as he explores how Luxembourg’s strong fortress kept the Grand Duchy safe from foreign invaders for centuries, starting at the earliest mention of the country through 1443 when the Duchy passed control to the Duke of Burgundy, Philip the Good.

Following mass, the music and dancing continues, and a Luxembourg Lunch is available, including Treipen and other culinary delights.
