Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

This talk, by Dr. Erich Uffelman, will explore how the technical examination of cultural heritage objects (especially paintings) informs their art historical interpretation, their conservation treatment, and their display conditions.

*CONVO: Paul Taylor Dance Company
Norton Center for the Arts – Newlin Hall, Danville KY

Celebrating its 60th season, the Paul Taylor Dance Company, directed by the greatest living pioneer of American modern dance, visits the Norton Center this season for the first time ever. Extolled as “a marvel” and “the center of American modern dance” (New York Times), the iconic Paul Taylor produces dances consistently regarded as masterpieces. His prodigious output includes more than 140 works over the course of six decades, with choreography that runs the gamut—lyrical, dark, ironic, silly, nostalgic, and outright funny — but each piece is always a journey orchestrated by genius. Paul Taylor’s primary Company’s performance on the Newlin Hall stage will feature the Kentucky premiere of American Dreamer, a brand new work created in 2013 set to the music of Kentucky’s own, Stephen Foster, as well as classic and entertaining Taylor signature works.
