Tomorrow, May 17th, you can see incredible artwork through a unique tour offered by The Hyde Collection and Art in the Public Eye (APE). Read on to find out what to expect and learn about the writer of this production.
Take a Tour of Traveler’s Tales
Visitors take a tour through history with Traveler’s Tales, which involves characters drawn from artworks by Rembrandt, Abbott Handerson Thayer, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, Thomas Eakins, Georges Seurat, Peter Paul Rubens, and Pablo Picasso, all exhibited in the historic Hyde House. APE President Erin Coon and Damon Lee direct Traveler’s Tales; Lee also wrote it.
Traveler’s Tales embraces the idea that history is an energy, and we can tap into this energy by expanding our minds to the reality of the art we see in front of us.
“This tour is about art taking physical form and guiding us on a journey through history, through time, a journey through different emotions,” Lee said in a statement.
Tours are scheduled for 6:30pm and 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 for non-members, and $15 for Hyde members.
You can purchase tickets by contacting Kayla at 518.792.1761, extension 310, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Talent Behind the Piece
Prior to writing Traveler’s Tales, Lee wrote and worked in production at an off-Broadway playhouse in Times Square for years. After he moved with his family up to Glens Falls, where his wife is from, he continued writing and still had an itch for the theater.
“His work is funny, honest, smart, and well-paced,” Coon said in a statement. “I thought he would be a great fit for The Hyde tour because he has a knack for finding new perspectives while remaining incredibly respectful of his subject.”
Check out the tour tomorrow and experience what The Hyde has to offer in a whole new way!
