[CANCELED] Patriotism in Art: Robert Frost and Ted Shawn
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. Join us at the Robert Frost Stone House Museum for a powerful, interdisciplinary discussion about patriotism in art. Slate cultural critic and Bennington College visiting professor Stephen Metcalf will discuss Robert Frost's approach, and choreographer Adam H. Weinert will discuss dancer Ted Shawn's intentions — and his own relationship with patriotism in his work. Seating is first-come, first-served.
