Shakespeare at 450- Exhibit and Event

Shakespeare-collage-3.pngIn celebration of Shakespeare's 450th birthday, the Claremont Colleges Library invites you to join us for a night of Shakespeare on Monday, April 14 at 7 p.m. in the Honnold/Mudd Founders Room. Student performers will be doing a dramatization of various Shakespearean sonnets followed by an unveiling of the Special Collections exhibit "Shakespeare at 450: Keeping The Name Alive." This is the inaugural exhibit of the Claremont Center for Engagement with Primary Sources (CCEPS) student curator program, and was curated by Amy Borsuk, Scripps '14.

"Shakespeare at 450: Keeping the Name Alive" celebrates Shakespeare's genius and popularity through the actors and actresses who have portrayed his characters from the 18th to the 20th century. These creative minds have served as our tie to Shakespeare on and off the stage, and have made Shakespeare, his characters, and his plays into the icons that they are. Exhibit on display from April 14 through May 30, 2014 in the Special Collections Exhibit Area.

RE:BOOK Artist Lecture- Susan Sironi

Susan-Sironi-blog-graphic.pngPlease join us for the RE:BOOK 2014 Artist Lecture sponsored by the Claremont Colleges Library.

Susan Sironi: Expressions Through Altered Books
Wednesday, April 2, 4:15PM
Honnold/Mudd Founders Room

Susan Sironi's current work with altered books and collage is an evolution from her earlier work in assemblage. Her work with altered books maintains a conceptual thread through the questioning of past histories with their impact on the present. A graduate of California State University Long Beach, she has shown throughout California and was included in Art Basel Switzerland and Miami 2012. Ms. Sironi will lecture on her artistic process and products, touching on topics including why she has chosen books as her medium; her messages of history, change, and memory; and how her technical process serves her artistic concept.

Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there.
