BLAKE EXHIBITION AND FESTIVAL AT ADELPHI

With a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Erica Doctorow and Donald A. Wolf are organizing an exhibition titled “William Blake: Poet as Painter,” which will run from 19 March through 29 May 1977 at the Swirbul Library Gallery, Adelphi University, Garden City, New York.

The focus will be on the relation between illustration and text, with special attention to the ideas of Innocence and Experience. There will be about fifty items on display selected from the collections of the Rosenbach Foundation, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Princeton Museum of Art, Lessing J. Rosenwald, and several private lenders, among others. There will a catalogue; details will appear in the summer issue of the Newsletter.

In May a Blake festival will coincide with the exhibition. The festival will include an opera inspired by “Auguries of Innocence” and composed especially for the occasion, a dance program based on Benjamin Britten’s settings for Blake’s poems, and a readers’ theater version of Island in the Moon.
