I had a wonderful time in New Haven a few weeks ago to see my sister’s costumes in a new play called Deer and the Lovers by Emily Zemba and directed by Sara Holdren. 🙂

Last month, I went up to Yale with my parents to see my sister’s amazing costumes in Molière’s Don Juan. She gave us a fun tour of her studio, costume shop, and class rooms as well as a good portion of campus. It was great running into a number of actors I saw in plays when I was at Yale in December. We may go up again in the Spring to see more of my sister’s shows. 🙂

I had a wonderful time at Yale this past December. I was there as a guest speaker for Wendall K. Harrington’s “Visual Storytelling” course at the School of Drama and also to visit my sister, who’s a grad student there.

I was lucky enough to be able to visit The Yale Center for British Art before it closed for renovations. There, I saw one of my favorite paintings: Henry Wallis’s The Death of Chatterton. I was also able to take advantage of their study room, where I examined original prints of William Blake’s America a Prophecy and Jerusalem.

I had a great time at the Yale University Art Gallery, where I saw John Everett Millais’s beautiful Yes or No? and Hieronymus Bosch’s An Allegory of Intemperance (which I had been hoping to see, since I saw part of the same triptych Death and the Miser at the National Gallery of Art in D.C. last year).

I saw three plays, all of which were amazing — War (by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz), Chekov’s The Seagull (directed by Jessica Holt), and my favorite The Zero Scenario (by Ryan Campbell, directed by Sara Holdren).

I’m looking forward to visiting Yale again at the end of this January to see my sister’s costumes in Molière’s Don Juan.

Long time no see, D.C.

As you already may know, I was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in the Potomac/Rockville/Bethesda area of Maryland. I haven’t had a chance to go back since 2011, so SPX (Small Press Expo) was a perfect excuse. 🙂

I had a little bit of extra time on Friday to visit the National Gallery of Art — and I am SO GLAD that I did. Ever since watching Nodame Cantabile, I discovered a great interest in Igor Stravinsky’s life and music, especially his ballets like The Rite of Spring and Petrushka. My interest became even greater with the film Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky (starring my beloved Mads Mikkelsen). So I was very excited to get a chance to see the exhibit “Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, 1909-1929: When Art Danced with Music.” I really learned a lot from this exhibit — about how the Ballets Russes commissioned so many amazing artists including Picasso, Matisse, Cocteau, de Chirico, etc. — and enjoyed seeing the original costumes and amazing costume designs. I was also excited to see Alexander Calder’s magnificent, ginormous mobile again — a childhood favorite.

Below are some photographs I took and images from the exhibit to give you a taste of my experience!
