Upcoming events in Harvard’s Art Scene
Need some weekend plans? Want to immerse yourself into the Harvard art scene? Then read up on upcoming exhibits, lectures, and performances!
Even though the Corita Kent exhibit will be here until May 8, 2016, you should still get out of the blustery fall weather and dive into Kent’s 1960s pop art. While at the Harvard Art Museums, be sure to check out the other special collections on display including the Gordon Ward Gahan collection and the Social Museum Collection.
The Play by Play
In addition to References to Salvador Dali Make me Hot, there are a few other shows worth checking out this weekend. Oscar Wilde’s classic The Importance of Being Earnest is at Farkas Hall for its last weekend. This rendition of Earnest takes the characters out of Victorian England and places them in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. You can catch the show at 7:30PM Thursday, October 22nd through Sunday, October 25th for the steep, steep price of a Harvard ID.
If you want to relive your summer camp days, go see Mike and Micah Lose a Bunch of Kids. You even get to witness some stand-up from various Harvard comedic groups in the opening. The show runs at 7:30 Thursday, October 22nd through Saturday, October 24th in the Loeb Experimental Theatre. You can request free tickets by emailing [email protected]
On Thursday, October 22nd, the Harvard Innovation Lab will launch the 2016 President’s and Dean’s Challenges Kickoff at the Harvard i-Lab. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit that has an artistic flair, you should definitely enter the competition for the Dean’s Cultural Entrepreneurship Challenge: Converting Your Passion into a Journey. The i-Lab will be giving away over $300,000 for student initiatives and innovations.
