Highland Center for the Arts
2875 Hardwick Street, Greensboro, VT
Join us for a special event on Sunday, May 20 at 3:00 pm in the Highland Center for the Arts’ Gallery, with a performance by Peter Schumann & Co.
Bread & Aioli served after the show, with cash bar. Cheap art, Bread & Puppet Press publications, and limited-edition exhibit banners for sale.
Over 40 large scale woodblock print banners on exhibit! Inspired by Dürer’s series, Peter Schumann cut his Post-Apocalyptic Woodcuts for the ¾ Empire in the early months of 2017, addressing, “the brand new horror of our own Empire boss’s threat to eliminate whole countries for non-compliance with Empire politics.” Lila Winstead added assemblages of carved words, from the Bread and Puppet print shop archives, and printed them on large muslin fabric. The text within the images is from the cantastoria of the same title.
