For the duration of Nordic Cool 2013, the Terrace Gallery will become the Cool Club, an extension of the Nordic Design Illustrated exhibition. The Cool Club will feature the iconic Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chairs, on loan from Fritz Hansen, the Embassy of Denmark in Washington, D.C., and Furniture from Scandinavia, and a new curtain made from fabric by Marimekko.
Pianist, composer, and bandleader Jacob Anderskov has performed all over the world with his trio and his other bands including Anderskov Accident and Airto Moreira–Jacob Anderskov Duo. One of three spearheading acts of the Danish International Jazz Launch, a cooperative music export project between several of the major music institutions in Denmark, Anderskov has previously wowed D.C. audiences with his "edgy, evocative compositions" (JazzTimes).
