Where Art Thou: Klimt Edition

New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus.

On Campus:

  • This weekend, join the CU Players for The Hungry Woman: A Mexican Medea. Playing Thurs-Sat at 8 PM in the Glicker-Milstein Theater, Cherríe Moraga’s play reimagines Medea as the former leader of a Chicano revolt at the turn of the millennium. Tickets $5.50.
