On Saturday April 23rd, in honor of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death and the Museum’s recently acquired works, Rockwell Kent: The Shakespeare Portfolio join us for a day of Celebrating Shakespeare. Enjoy live performances, curated by Barbara Colaciello, and music inspired by the work and times of Shakespeare from Shawn Lightfoot from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Come be enchanted by the bard’s brilliant writing — recited, rendered, rapped throughout the day in the Gardens. You might lend an ear to Marc Antony, discover Trickster Puck behind a tree, witness a distraught Helena wear her heart on her sleeve, and come upon a hip hop artist weaving words and phrases Shakespeare coined. Events will be held throughout the Museum’s Gardens.
Vignettes are scheduled throughout the Gardens with the following talented actors:
This event is free with paid Museum admission. In the case of inclement weather, performances and music will be moved indoors.
