With a history spanning more than seven decades, the C. Shaw and Nancy K. Smith Artist Series (formerly the Artist Series) brings a wide variety of world-class entertainment, from music to dance to marionettes, to the campus and greater community.
The 2013–14 series will conclude with The Cashore Marionettes: Life in Motion. Unmatched in artistry, grace and refinement of movement, the internationally acclaimed Cashore Marionettes redefine the art of puppetry. Life in Motion is a concert of more than a dozen marionette pieces, performed by Joe Cashore in full view of the audience. With music from composers such as Vivaldi and Beethoven and without words, each vignette explores a different facet of human experience. The event is free, ticket required.
