Four Women of Literature: Readings Inspired by Clayton's Cottier & Co. Windows

Event information

January 11, 2022
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Location
The Frick Art Museum Auditorium
Proof of Covid-19 vaccination required.
Cost:
Free for members; $10 non-members; $5 students; advance registration required.
Description:
The Cottier windows of Clayton portray four of the preeminent female characters in literature—each of their stories written by a man: Miranda from Shakespeare’s The Tempest; Isabella from Keat's The Pot of Basil; Marguerite from Goethe’s Faust; and Madeline from Keat's The Eve of St. Agnes. Four Pittsburgh-based artists ask “What is it to be a woman?” as they perform readings from the literary works that brought these women to life. The performances will be followed by a discussion contemplating gender, aestheticism, and literature's place in the historic and contemporary worlds.
