Treading the Borders: Immigration and the American Stage
Houghton Library, Edison and Newman Room
Join us for the opening of our major fall exhibition “Treading the Borders: Immigration and the American Stage” (On view September 4–December 15, 2018).
Much of the richness and vitality of the performing arts in the United States derives from creative talent originating elsewhere. This exhibition explores how successive waves of immigration transformed the American stage, highlighting the virtuosity and resilience of a diverse group of actors, artists, and entertainers from the colonial era to the present day.
This event is free and open to the public.
