Shakespeare, Muir Come Alive in Yosemite for Earth Day

The works of Shakespeare, perhaps more so than any in the western canon, have been subject to reinterpretation and reappraisal by generations of artists, scholars and laypeople.

Some, like Verdi’s opera “Otello,” are considered masterpieces in their own right. Others, most notably Thomas Bowdler’s much maligned, puritanical expurgation of Shakespeare’s works, have been roundly scorned and derided.

Alchemy Turns Thought into Art

Join renowned artist Dwight Wigley and create your own piece of a community art project.

As part of the annual Merced Art Hop, everyone is invited to paint tiles that will be placed into a structure designed by Wigley to create a collective work of art.

Each contributor will be photographed with his or her artwork for a book to be produced after the event, and when the art piece is dismantled, each tile artist will get his or her tile back, along with a copy of the book.
