Henry VI, Part 2

WHERE: Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre, University of Colorado Boulder Map to venue:

"Smooth runs the water, where the brook is deep; And in his simple show he harbours treason.” One night only! Summer 2016’s hottest ticket is a single performance of Henry VI, Part 2—the latest of the CSF’s widely hailed “original practices” productions on one of America’s most iconic outdoor stages. Shakespeare’s razor-sharp exploration of England’s War of the Roses, which also inspired the hit cable series Game of Thrones, drives toward the thrilling conclusion of one of his greatest cycles. All previous “OP” shows sold out months in advance—don’t miss it!

Degas’ Escape: Affirming while obliterating his marks on paper and canvas

From: August 01 2016 @ 6:30 pm
To: August 01 2016 @ 8:00 pm

WHERE: The Grand View in Lionshead 395 E. Lionshead Circle Vail, CO 81657

Edgar Degas’ works defy categorization. Being neither a Realist nor an Impressionist, but a hybrid of sorts, he worked fearlessly, passionately and determinedly in a vast array of media from etchings and monotypes, pastels and oils, sculpture and even photography. In Vail, Dr. Timothy Standring, the Gates Foundation Curator of Painting & Sculpture at the Denver Art Museum, will offer rare insight to the raw and unique work of Degas. Standring’s narrative of this artist, based on his current research undertaken in museums and libraries across Europe and North America – spiced with telling anecdotes – offers the perfect introduction to this late 19th century French artist whose centenary celebrations will occur with exhibitions worldwide and perhaps even in Denver. Dr. Standring has curated over thirteen exhibitions at the museum – including the popular “Becoming Van Gogh” – and has published widely in the Burlington Magazine, the Print Quarterly, Artibus et Historiae, Renaissance Quarterly and Apollo. His writings reflect interests that include 17th-century Roman patrons, monographic studies on European artists, British watercolor sketching, Impressionist portraits, Poussin’s early works, Van Gogh’s drawings, contemporary realist artists such as Daniel Sprick and T. Allen Lawson, the works of Andrew and Jamie Wyeth and, now, Degas.
