Join us for a celebration of the exhibition “Lorca in Vermont” with poets, translators, artists, directors, and musicians exploring and interpreting Lorca's work. A brief introduction to the exhibition will be followed by a performance by Joan Jonas and a panel where poets, translators, and directors will discuss the continued engagement of those seeking to render and pay tribute to Lorca’s work either through literary translation, the staging of his plays, or projects in nonliterary mediums. Jazz pianist Ben Sidran will end the evening with a musical tribute to Lorca.
