Exhibition on Screen: Michelangelo—Love and Death
Friday, October 18, 2019, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Zohn Collective with La Coperacha

Friday, October 18, 2019, 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm

This evening-length concert brings together two literary-based contemporary musical works dramatized through puppetry. The pairing of the two works, delicately connected by a prismatic interrelationship of thematic threads between their literary texts, invites distinct but complementary reflections on fundamental themes of love, loss, and identity. The Zohn Collective features Tony Arnold, soprano; Zach Finkelstein, tenor; Tim Weiss, conductor. Theatrical puppets by La Coperacha (Guadalajara); staging by Antonio Camacho.

Michelangelo’s sculptures, paintings, and architectural projects have been the subject of artistic admiration for more than 500 years.

Sunday, September 22, 2019 to Sunday, January 5, 2020

The name of the Italian Renaissance painter, sculptor, and architect Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564) is synonymous with creative genius and virtuosity. The exhibition Michelangelo: Mind of the Master presents an unprecedented opportunity for museum visitors to experience the brilliance of Michelangelo’s achievements on an intimate scale through more than two dozen original drawings. Michelangelo’s genius is especially evident through his breathtaking draftsmanship on sheets filled with multiple figures and close studies of human anatomy.
