Extremely Hungary Festival

A year-long, two-city celebration of Hungary, Extremely Hungary, started this weekend with events in New York. The other city is Washington, and there are several upcoming events of note.

On February 8, Beáta Palya, right, performs at The Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center. Her music is described as a fusion of traditional Hungarian folk, jazz, gypsy, Indian, and Persian.

In March, Picturing Progress: Hungarian Women Photographers 1910-1946 runs at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

In May, Bronze from the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest opens at the National Gallery of Art.

There are also film festivals and other exhibits, so visit their web site for more events.
