The Arts Council of Greater New Haven, in collaboration with curator Katro Storm, is presenting “A Tribute to Langston Hughes” with an exhibition at the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallry, 70 Audubon St, 2nd Floor, and with an event at Lyric Hall in Westville, 827 Whalley Ave, New Haven.
The Lyric Hall event will feature a dynamic one-man theatrical performance by “Ade” Anthony Thompson and a screening of Voices and Visions, the renowned documentary about Langston Hughes. A question and answer period with the audience will take place after the screening. Admission is $10.
The show will be on view from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, February 8th to April 5th, 2013. Free and open to the public.
The events pay tribute to Langston Hughes; poet, novelist, playwright, and leading voice of the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s.
As Storm describes it, the show will be layered and include collaborations because Hughes liked to work collaboratively.
