Sunday in the Park with George
Inspired by the French painter Georges Seurat’s painting A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, Sunday in the Park with George contains some of Stephen Sondheim’s most beautiful music. The story revolves around George, a fictionalized version of Seurat, who immerses himself deeply in painting his masterpiece, and his great-grandson (also named George), a contemporary artist struggling to find his way to creating something new. One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, Sunday in the Park with George won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was nominated for an astounding 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
This performance will use theatrical smoke and haze, as well as strobe lighting effects.
Join us for Saturday at the Stanley!
Saturday, March 9 at 3:00 p.m.
Stanley Visual Classroom, third floor Iowa Memorial Union
Georges Seurat's short career has had a sustained impact on artists. Join Assistant Curator Kim Datchuk from the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art for a discussion of how artists, including Jean Metzinger, Maurice Prendergast, Bridget Riley, and Sally Drummond, continue to respond to Seurat's work.
