Ecstatic Decrepitude Opening Reception
Featuring the works of Bread and Puppet Founder Peter Schumann
Join us on April 30 for the opening of Ecstatic Decrepitude, an exhibition featuring the works of Bread and Puppet Founder Peter Schumann.
Stop by 6 to 8 PM to browse the galleries and experience the masks, puppets, books, paper maché relief work, and paintings that convey Schumann’s deep commitment to the creative and political work which unites artists and communities in celebration and protest. The exhibition remains on view through July 31.
Bread and Puppet Theater’s Cheap Art will be for sale at ArtYard’s Contrary Art Shop. An art practice that grew out of selling art out of a school bus for 10 cents to $10, Cheap Art is practiced by all kinds of artists and puppeteers all over, and continues to cry out: Art is Not Business! Art Is Food! Art Soothes Pain! Art Wakes Up Sleepers! Art Is Cheap! Hurrah!
Face masks are required for the opening.
