Shakespeare Exhibit Showing at TAMIU

 

Shakespeare
Meet the man who convinced us all the world's a stage...William Shakespeare.  

Stop by the Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) Senator Judith Zaffirini Student Success Center between Saturday, Oct. 1 and Monday, Oct. 31 to see “Shakespeare,” an exhibition produced in collaboration with the Harry Ransom Center and the Department of Theater and Dance at The University of Texas at Austin and Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The exhibit is part of TAMIU’s month-long celebration of Cervantes and Shakespeare, two giants of literature, on the 400th anniversary of their passing.

Admission is free and open to the public.

Shakespeare is the quintessential subject for a humanities program. Born into a culture formed by the great humanists of the Renaissance, he peopled the stage with characters that embody both the glory and riddle of being human.

“Shakespeare” draws primarily from print resources at the Harry Ransom Center and production photographs of the Department of Theater and Dance at The University of Texas at Austin.

Humanities Texas develops and supports diverse programs across the State, including lectures, oral history projects, teacher institutes, traveling exhibitions and documentary films.
