Celebrating Shakespeare!




Rockwell Kent American 1882 – 1971 “– and let me rest.” from A Midsummer- Night’s Dream 1936 Ink on wove paper Gift of Cheryl S. Cummer AG.2012.9.13

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:
Derek Coghlan
Katherine Herndon
Joshua Taylor
Mal Jones
Matthew Colaciello

This event is free with paid Museum admission. In the case of inclement weather, performances and music will be moved indoors.

Check out our Facebook event page for more details.
