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.
A graduate student at Manhattan School of Music, Finnish guitarist Olli Hirvonen and his quartet have performed at numerous Finnish events, including the Pori Jazz Festival, where Hirvonen was nominated for 2011 Artist of the Year. With Frederick Menzies on tenor saxophone, Jeff Koch on bass, and Philippe Lemm on drums, Hirvonen's international quartet plays music that is distinctively modernistic, drawing influences from rock, jazz, R&B, 21st-century classical music, contemporary art, and literature.
