Spotlight on Women:

Panel, Play and Performers
Sunday, December 7th

HVCCA is proud to present an exciting afternoon of events highlighting the diverse accomplishments of women artists. The program will feature a panel discussion with artists and curators, a profoundly moving short play, and a live dance performance with live music!

2 – 3 pm: There will be a panel discussion designed to elucidate the exhibition on view at the museum entitled “The Women’s Room: Female Perspectives on Men, Women, Family and Nation.” The exhibition’s curators, Marcy B. Freedman and Livia Straus, along with video artist Sara Shaoul, will discuss the works on view and invite the audience to join in.

3 – 4 pm: Theater director Mara Mills presents “What Comes Around” by playwright Donna Barkman, who acts in the play along with Louise Kaminer. This wonderful short play is about two older women who meet for the first time since high school. It explores betrayal, redemption, and discovery.

4 – 5 pm: The final program of the afternoon will be an original dance performance! Two dancers, Marsi Burns, in her 60s, and Alice Teirstein, in her 80s, will perform a site-specific dance that creatively moves throughout various spaces of the museum. Their work is a fitting culmination to an afternoon dedicated to women artists!

There will be two intermissions and a fun reception at 5 pm. Please join in!
