"Shakespeare’s First Folio: 1623–2023" Collins Gallery

Sun May 19
12:00 AM - 11:59 PM

This exhibition celebrates the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s First Folio, the earliest collection of his dramatic work. Without the book’s publication in 1623, nearly half of Shakespeare’s plays would have been lost, including Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Twelfth Night, and The Tempest. The show highlights Shakespeare’s legacy in the education and entertainment of young people, in film, and in popular culture.

Exhibit dates:  April 6 to May 19, 2024
