To explore the 2000-year-old visual history of yoga, the Smithsonian will showcase over 100 works at its Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington, DC on October 19. Actor Alec Baldwin and his wife, famed New York yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas will chair the fund-raising gala for the event, entitled "Some Enlightened Evening." The gala is scheduled for October 17, two days before "Yoga: The Art of Transformation" opens to the public.
