THROUGH LINES: WITH SUSAN LICHTMAN
 
Time 2:30 pm 
Location Rose Art Museum
Description Experience Howardena Pindell's retrospective exhibition through the lens of painter and Brandeis faculty member Susan Lichtman (Fine Arts). This tour is part of the museum's Through Lines series, which aims to shed light on the radical ideas and transformational, multidisciplinary processes that continue to shape artistic practice.

Susan Lichtman is the Charles Bloom Chair in the Arts of Design in the Department of Fine Arts. As a painter, Lichtman is known for her portrayals of domestic spaces: compositions constructed from direct observations, remembered impressions, and photographs she takes and finds. These scenes are distinguished by Lichtman's skilled depiction of light and her carefully controlled color palette, elements which contribute to the intimate narratives in which they appear to be wrapped. A recipient of awards from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, Lichtman had a recent solo exhibition at the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum at Hollins University in Roanoke, Virgina.

 

THE BACCHAE
Time 3:30 pm
Location Mainstage Theater, Spingold Theater Center 
Description This new translation from ancient Greek by Joel P. Christensen ’01 (Classics) tells the story of Dionysus, who travels to Thebes to clear his mother’s name. His arrival upends the ordered city-state of Thebes by introducing to Theban women the frenzied worship of a new god. With vibrant original songs and choreography, this production takes a contemporary look at religious ecstasy, political authority and the psychology of mass violence. Scenic design by Cameron Anderson. Directed by Dmitry Troyanovsky. Presented by the Department of Theater Arts. Made possible by the Brandeis Arts Council. Tickets: $20/$15/$5. (Also on Thursday, Friday and Saturday)
