The University of Montana is pleased to be named Montana’s host for the First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on national tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library, sponsored by the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Library and the Montana Museum of Art & Culture (MMAC).
The Folger Shakespeare Library, in association with the Cincinnati Museum Center and the American Library Association, is touring the exhibition to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico in 2016. The MMAC will be the only location in Montana to display the Folio during its tour around the country.
The First Folio exhibition will be on display in MMAC and open to the public during special hours.
Thank you to the Folger Shakespeare Library. The tour is made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and by the support of Google.org, Vinton and Sigrid Cerf, the British Council, and other generous donors.
The Capturing Moments art installation brings together thousands of journeys of resilience from the global Parkinson's community. The installation features a 9-foot metal tree, which is lit from within and holds thousands of copper and paper leaves. Each leaf shares a quote or message from someone in our world living with or impacted by Parkinson’s. By sharing their stories and quotes, contributors to the project inspire, connect, and help to build the tree of resilience. In combination with the tree sculpture, the exhibition also includes environmental portraits with personal stories of resilience. This is the premiere installation of the national tour for Capturing Moments, and features the work of Montana artists Carolyn Montgomery and Hadley Ferguson.
