In 1615 an elaborate procession took place on the streets of Brussels captured by painter Denis van Alsloot in a series of six large paintings. One of those paintings became an important historical document for both theatre and art historians due to its many pageant wagons featuring scenes from history, religion, and mythology. Along with a full scale reproduction of that central painting, graduate students at the University of Maryland in the School of Theatre, Dance, & Performance Studies have recreated elements of the painting for display in this exhibit, which will remain open during library hours through May 2019.
Stay tuned as we partner with the School of Theatre, Dance, & Performance Studies to roll out related events throughout the 2018-2019 academic year, which will also include a symposium in March 2019.
