"Shakespeare at 450: Keeping The Name Alive"

April 14 – May 30, 2014

Honnold/Mudd Library, 2nd Floor North Lobby


"Shakespeare at 450: Keeping the Name Alive" celebrates the legacy of Shakespeare's work through the actors who have brought his words to life. These actors, along with directors, set designers, costumers and other artisans are part of a rich performance history inspired by Shakespeare's plays.

This exhibit is curated by Amy Borsuk, Scripps College, class of 2014, and marks an inaugural fellowship with the Claremont Center for Engagement with Primary Sources (CCEPS). Amy's exhibit reflects her engagement with these materials as revealing ways in which Shakespeare's words have been taken up to speak to the multiple cultural, social, and geographic contexts in which they have been performed. She invites the viewer to consider ways Shakespearean texts continue to reveal themselves to us as, along with what they may reflect of ourselves.


You can read about Amy's experience with putting together the exhibit by following her account on the CCEPS blog, Out of the Box.
