Mainstage Series

Orlando
By Virginia Woolf
Adapted by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Erica Vannon

November 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 at 8:00 p.m.
November 10 at 2:00 p.m.
E.C. Mabie Theatre, UI Theatre Building

Sarah Ruhl’s Orlando is a poetic dance of identity across centuries. Highlighting the fluidity of attraction and the mutability of gender, this dreamy adaptation from the original 1928 novel by Virginia Woolf is considered “the longest love letter in the history of English letters” from Woolf to her great love, Vita Sackville-West. One of the American theater’s most beloved playwrights couples her sweeping storytelling with the original, lyrical narration by one of England’s greatest authors to tell an epic story of love.

Holiday Art Market @ Iowa Memorial Union
Dec 7 @ 12:00 pm – Dec 8 @ 4:00 pm

Summer of the Arts is proud to present the Holiday Art Market. This event  replaces the Fine Arts Council’s Holiday Thieves’ Market.

Hours:

December 7: Noon – 6 PM
December 8: from 10 AM – 4 PM

Saturdays at the Stanley: Cat People Art @ Stanley Visual Classroom, Iowa Memorial Union, third floor
Dec 7 @ 2:00 pm

The internet may have fueled our collective cat-craziness, but it didn’t start it. Edouard Manet, for example, drew a cat on a balcony smelling potted flowers, and Tsugouharu Foujita drew his self-portrait many times with his beloved cat resting its head on his shoulder or sitting on him. See how cats have captivated artists for over a hundred years.

Saturdays at the Stanley brings the museum’s collection to audiences in a casual, fun, and interactive atmosphere. Each event has a theme that looks at our artwork from a different perspective. Curators lead visitors through a selection of works, share stories about the artists and subject matter, and open the discussion up to the audience. We invite visitors of all ages to participate in these conversations and get (re)acquainted with our collection as we look forward to the opening of our new building!

2019-2020 Saturdays at the Stanley events are sponsored in part by Little Village.
