At 7:00 PM, head for Pasadena and Norton Simon Museum to listen to Colin B. Bailey's lecture "Towards a Thinking Man’s Boucher: Myth and Genre in Boucher’s Art." Bailey is Chief Curator of The Frick Collection, tackling the divide between Boucher's reputation as a libertine and the more poetic subjects of his art. "This lecture offers a reappraisal of Boucher, presenting him as an inspired creator of narratives from religion and mythology, as well as a witty and knowing chronicler of gallantry and flirtation."

At LACMA, the film series Monty: The Films of Montgomery Clift continues at 7:30 PM with a screening of 1953's I Confess, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, followed by 1962's Freud, directed by John Huston.
