Kirpi Uimonen Talks

Enjoy stories behind Meeting with the Stars Photo Exhibition

Kirpi Uimonen Talks: 14 September 2023 at 5 pm

This autumn, St. George presents Kirpi Uimonen's Meeting with the Stars Photo Exhibition that features famous Hollywood people from Julia Roberts to Angelina Jolie and from Robert Redford to Brad Pitt. The exhibition consists of 30 pictures and can be viewed at the ground floor of the hotel near St. George Bakery.

Kirpi Uimonen has lived in Los Angeles for 20 years. Because of her work, she meets world-famous television and film industry professionals. The photos of the Meeting with the Stars exhibition were taken in the 2010s at press conferences organized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

On Thursday September 14, you can enjoy unique stories about the artists who are featured in the Meeting with the Stars exhibition by Kirpi Uimonen at Wintergarden from 5 pm. Are you curious to hear about the personalities of Lady Gaga, Anthony Hopkins or George Clooney, and more, through the eyes of an insightful journalist? The event will be interactive and open for discussion, so questions from the audience about the stars and the work of a Hollywood journalist are welcome.

Wintergarden Bar Manager Tuomas Hämäläinen will create a unique cocktail to match the theme, and you are warmly invited to continue your evening with friends after the event.

The event is free of charge, but please note that Wintergarden's drinks are subject to a charge.

Warmest of welcome!
