Brown Bag and Tour

September 5, 2014, Noon

Painter Georges Seurat and his iconic painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte served as Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s inspiration for their musical Sunday in the Park with George. Bring your lunch for a discussion about art, its creation, and Post-Impressionism with Signature Theatre’s Associate Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner, Education Director David Zobell, and Sunday in the Park designers. Following the discussion, Phillips Head of Public Engagement Brooke Rosenblatt leads a gallery talk about Renoir’s Luncheon of the Boating Party, a source of artistic inspiration for Seurat. In partnership with Signature Theatre.
