Clothes Oft Proclaim the Man: Fashion and Passion in the Time of Shakespeare

July 15- August 6

Join together in the courtyard for scene cut at 6:00pm from our upcoming Shakespeare in the Woods production,
Much Ado About Nothing.

Coinciding with the Shakespeare in the Woods presentation of Much Ado About Nothing this July in Webster’s Woods, The Port Angeles Fine Art Center presents a historic fashion survey from the time in which William Shakespeare wrote his plays and then how Shakespeare’s characters have been depicted and reinterpreted down through the centuries.
Local costume designer Richard Stephens curates this exhibit that bridges the late 16th Century to the present and examines how every age adapts Shakespeare to their own aesthetic. “Shakespeare has endured the test of time for so many reasons, not the least of which is because his themes and topics continue to resonate across different times and cultures.  Like a great mirror, we see ourselves and our present society in the acute physiological depths of Shakespeare’s plots and characters”, explains exhibit curator Richard Stephens.
