Open Tue to Sun, June 30 – August 29

Ted Shawn’s instructions to architect Joseph Franz provide the title for this examination of all the Pillow’s performance spaces, past and present. Artifacts and images from the Ted Shawn Theatre, Doris Duke Theatre, Inside/Out, and the Bakalar Studio create a kaleidoscopic celebration of live performance at the Pillow. Read more about this summer’s exhibit on the Pillow’s blog.
