Hartford - Romeo and Juliet
Posted on: 2020-02-05

When: 2/14/2020 - 2/16/2020
The HSO brings to life one of the greatest love stories of all time! Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet has inspired works of art in all mediums, and the music from Prokofiev's ballet captures all of the bliss, humor, drama, and tragedy of the play. Contemporary composer Hannah Kendall's imaginative The Spark Catchers is inspired by the poem of the same name by Lemn Sissay. Tomasi's playful Trumpet Concerto and Rodgers' fan favorite My Funny Valentine will feature HSO's principal trumpet, Scott McIntosh.

New Britain - Kara Walker: Harpers Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated)
Posted on: 2020-02-05
What: Kara Walker: Harpers Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated)
Where: New Britain Museum of American Art, 56 Lexington Street, New Britain, CT 06052
When: 1/24/2020 - 4/19/2020, Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday: 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Thursday: 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Saturday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
From January-April 2020, the New Britain Museum of American Art will present Kara Walker: Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated), an exhibition of particular significance for the NBMAA. Marking the debut of the Museum's recent acquisition of Walker's 2005 print series Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated), the exhibition also launches the Museum's 2020 initiative, in which all exhibitions will be dedicated to female artists, in honor of the centennial of women's suffrage in America. Throughout her career, Walker has addressed race, gender, and identity in her work, as well as the representation of African Americans from historical to contemporary times. She has frequently returned to the subject of the Civil War in works that reveal the exploitation and violence experienced by African Americans during that era. In 2005, Walker worked in collaboration with the LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies, New York, to produce Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated), a portfolio of 15 prints that considers experiences of racism toward African Americans that were absent or only alluded to in historical representations of the Civil War.
