Directed By Deryl Davis

Two Hollywood giants – Orson Welles and Laurence Olivier. The time is 1960; the place is a West End theatre. Legendary critic Kenneth Tynan has made a startling proposal: Welles should direct Olivier and the young Joan Plowright in Rhinoceros, Ionesco’s absurdist masterpiece. But it is the rehearsal process that brims with absurdity as titanic personalities, including Vivien Leigh, wrestle the muse in this witty and incisive depiction of the drama of theatre.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Joshua McKerrow
Produced by Maureen Rogers

Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy comes to life in a colorful, lush production from Joshua McKerrow, director of the WATCH award-winning Lieutenant of Inishmore.

Improbable circumstances bring together a lively cast of characters in this early English farce. Mistaken identities… long-lost twins… long-lost parents… plus a hearty dose of slapstick comedy and witty wordplay. All set against the panoply of a glorious, exotic world.

Cost:
General Admission: $20
Admission for students (12 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over): $15.

Hidden Things Revealed
New Watercolors by Patricia Williams

Disparate forms of life connected by color and shape reveal their nature as much by what is hidden as by what is revealed. Look closely: things may not be what they seem.

Oh Life!

New Multi-media Work by Gail Vogels

Vogels uses an assemblage of her life drawings, hand altered papers and found objects to reveal the beauty of the everyday.  The work tells a story of the beautiful and the temporary and seeks to remind people that there are still many mysteries in this life.

Exhibition – Cerámica De los Ancestros: Central America’s Past Revealed

Time: 10:00am to 5:30pm

Venue:

Address:

Fourth Street and Jefferson Drive, SW

Washington, DC 20001

From: National Museum of The American Indian

Website: Click to visit the site

This bilingual (English/Spanish) exhibition illuminates Central America’s diverse and dynamic ancestral heritage with a selection of more than 160 objects. For thousands of years, Central America has been home to vibrant civilizations, each with unique, sophisticated ways of life, value systems, and arts. The ceramics these peoples left behind, combined with recent archaeological discoveries, help tell the stories of these dynamic cultures and their achievements. Cerámica de los Ancestros examines seven regions representing distinct Central American cultural areas that are today part of Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. Spanning the period from 1000 BC to the present, the ceramics featured, selected from the museum’s collection of more than 12,000 pieces from the region, are augmented with significant examples of work in gold, jade, shell, and stone. These objects illustrate the richness, complexity, and dynamic qualities of the Central American civilizations that were connected to peoples in South America, Mesoamerica, and the Caribbean through social and trade networks sharing knowledge, technology, artworks, and systems of status and political organization. This exhibition is a collaboration of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and the Smithsonian Latino Center.

Since 1993 the Smithsonian National Postal Museum has developed engaging exhibitions and entertaining public programs for families, students and serious collectors.

To celebrate our 15th anniversary, the museum is showing an exhibition rich in philatelic fascination and designerly detail called, Alphabetilately!

ALPHABET + PHILATELY or Alphabetilately is the alphabet of philately.

Each of the 26 letters stands for some aspect of the collecting of stamps or the sending of mail. The stamps, ephemera, and artifacts exhibited in Alphabetilately graphically document the spectrum of the American experience, from historical subjects to popular culture, from actual events to important ideas.

Alphabetilately is a universally appealing exhibition and a lively educational experience for visitors of every age.

It provides an extraordinary showcase for selections from our unparalleled collection of American postal and philatelic history.

Hidden Things Revealed
New Watercolors by Patricia Williams

Disparate forms of life connected by color and shape reveal their nature as much by what is hidden as by what is revealed. Look closely: things may not be what they seem.

Oh Life!

New Multi-media Work by Gail Vogels

Vogels uses an assemblage of her life drawings, hand altered papers and found objects to reveal the beauty of the everyday.  The work tells a story of the beautiful and the temporary and seeks to remind people that there are still many mysteries in this life.

This bilingual (English/Spanish) exhibition illuminates Central America’s diverse and dynamic ancestral heritage with a selection of more than 160 objects. For thousands of years, Central America has been home to vibrant civilizations, each with unique, sophisticated ways of life, value systems, and arts. The ceramics these peoples left behind, combined with recent archaeological discoveries, help tell the stories of these dynamic cultures and their achievements. Cerámica de los Ancestros examines seven regions representing distinct Central American cultural areas that are today part of Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. Spanning the period from 1000 BC to the present, the ceramics featured, selected from the museum’s collection of more than 12,000 pieces from the region, are augmented with significant examples of work in gold, jade, shell, and stone. These objects illustrate the richness, complexity, and dynamic qualities of the Central American civilizations that were connected to peoples in South America, Mesoamerica, and the Caribbean through social and trade networks sharing knowledge, technology, artworks, and systems of status and political organization. This exhibition is a collaboration of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and the Smithsonian Latino Center.
