Vermont Humanities Council – Painted Theater Curtains

November 15, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

Between 1880 and World War II, painted theater curtains were artistic features of most New England villages and towns. Christine Hadsel, director of Curtains Without Borders, provides a glimpse into the world of talented and often sophisticated artists who were part of the rural cultural scene, illustrating the rich cultural history of small-town Vermont before World War I.

Fairlee is very fortunate to have a fine example of a painted theater curtain, circa 1912. Read about the history of Fairlee’s painted curtain.

This presentation is free, open to the public, and accessible to people with disabilities. A Vermont Humanities Council Speakers’ Bureau event, hosted by Fairlee Community Arts.
