Upcoming Events

"1619 Project"

Feb. 10-26

Bishop Arts Theatre Center, 215 S. Tyler St.

In late August 1619, a ship arrived in the British colony of Virginia with a cargo of twenty to thirty enslaved people from Africa. Their arrival led to the barbaric and unprecedented system of American chattel slavery that would last for the next 250 years. This one-act festival features eight commissions by local and national playwrights that weave together stories that explore the legacy of slavery in present-day America.

"In the Shadow of Dictatorship: Creating the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art"

Feb. 26-June 18

Meadows Museum, 5900 Bishop Blvd.

During an era when Spanish artists found success abroad yet struggled for recognition at home, artist, critic, and collector Fernando Zbel established the Museo de Arte Abstracto Espaol in Cuenca, Spain on July 1, 1966, the first institution of its kind within Spain. Highlights from its remarkable collection, most coming to the U.S. for the first time, tell the story of this pioneering museum and explore the rich panorama of abstract Spanish art during the middle of the 20th century and under the Francoist regime.
