Kathy Griffin – February 15, 2015

 

 

Kathy GriffinKathy Griffin has made a storied career out of bursting the bubbles of pretentious celebrities, simultaneous embracing and shocking our star-obsessed culture. Griffin has become one of the most familiar faces on TV, thanks to a Bravo reality series, co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve with Anderson Cooper, and outrageous guest appearances on numerous talk shows and specials. One of only three women to ever win a Best 33 Album Grammy, she has also won two Emmys for her Bravo series. Openly risqué and unafraid to offend, Griffin has endeared herself to fans around the world for her willingness to say out loud the frank, catty things that many are thinking, while also championing those marginalized by the dominant culture. Kathy sold out Grand performances in 2005 and 2007, and this return engagement is unique for a 33 star who usually plays large auditoriums and arenas. For adult audiences only

Oscar Wilde’s Salome: Illustrating Death And Desire – February 07 – May 10, 2015 

Oscar Wilde’s Salome: Illustrating Death And Desire

Oscar Wilde’s Salomé: Illustrating Death and Desire will feature artists’ interpretations of this controversial play throughout the ages. The play was banned from production in London in 1893 and was not performed until three years later in Paris. Despite this controversy, the play’s publication, which included illustrations by the symbolist artist Aubrey Beardsley (1894), received significant recognition. The complete set of Beardsley’s lithographic illustrations will be on view. Illustrators have been attracted to the play’s rhythmic prose and subject matter ever since and several examples of these illustrations will also be on display. Engravings by Barry Moser illustrating the most recent publication (2011) and a new translation of the original French version by Joseph Donohue, will be featured in the exhibition.

When: 10:00am – 4:00pm
