About the Class
When it comes to getting in shape and staying fit, nothing compares to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. There are no embarrassing dance moves and a single hour of jiu jitsu can burn 500-1500 calories. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the ideal woman's sport. Women in general are more flexible, giving them a huge advantage when it comes to jiu jitsu techniques. Jiu Jitsu takes those natural movements and teaches women how to apply them correctly in order to submit an attacker or get away safely. Join us for this class!

Now through July 28, 2019
Winterthur has a secret. Scattered throughout the various offices, storage rooms, and libraries of our extensive campus is a midcentury modern furniture collection. Represented in this group of furnishings is an incredible spectrum of Knoll and Herman Miller objects purchased as early as 1957. Unity by Design explores the perceived juxtaposition of midcentury modernism at an institution rooted in traditional Americana. This lived collection of approximately 150 objects provides an exciting opportunity to both evaluate how American design operates in a cross-generational context and explore how midcentury modernism was and is experienced.
Visitors will be wrapped up in a midcentury modern interior as they explore the evolution of this distinctly American design movement. They will have the opportunity to take an in-depth look at the construction of midcentury modern furniture to better understand how industrialization and technical innovation influenced the design of these objects. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Winterthur’s first gallery exhibit on midcentury modern furniture! Exhibit is in the Society of Winterthur Fellows Gallery. Included with admission. Members free.

Featuring melted-cheese-and-whatever-else-onbread from 10+ restaurants, tickets include samples of all the entries, plus two beer/wine tickets (a portion of which benefit the Food Bank of Delaware). You vote for the winner. We suggest skipping lunch that day.Read more »
