As part of the 2016 Fall Puppet Forum Series, the Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry at the University of Connecticut will present Object, Image, Text: The Bread & Puppet Press, a discussion with Max Schumann, Executive Director of New York City’s Printed Matter; and Clare Dolan, the founder and Chief Operating Philosopher of Vermont’s Museum of Everyday Life. The forum will take place Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 7 p.m. in the Ballard Institute Theater, located at 1 Royce Circle in Storrs Center.

Presented in conjunction with the Ballard Institute exhibition Object, Image, Text: The Bread & Puppet Press, this forum will take the form of a conversation with Max Schumann, an acclaimed painter who also heads the world’s leading center for artists’ books; and puppeteer, curator, visual artist, and Bread & Puppet veteran Clare Dolan, who will explore an integral element of Bread & Puppet Theater director Peter Schumann’s prodigious artistic output: pamphlets, books, posters, and book-like constructions that have complemented his dynamic productions since 1963.
