THE HANGAR THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS FREE VIRTUAL PLAY “DEAR HOPE” ABOUT CROSSING THE POLITICAL DIVIDE

THE HANGAR THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS
FREE VIRTUAL PLAY “DEAR HOPE”
ABOUT CROSSING THE POLITICAL DIVIDE

 

At 7:30 PM EST on Sunday, November 1, the Hangar Theatre Company will present a virtual stream of a new play, Dear Hope, by Joy Peskin, directed by Michael Barakiva.  The performance is free, with registration required at hangartheatre.org/hope.

Dear Hope is a semi-autobiographical story of Hope, a liberal Democrat attending the Women’s March in Washington, DC on January 21, 2017. On the way there, she meets Jim, a conservative Republican who just attended the Presidential Inauguration. Alternating between live interactions and email exchanges, Dear Hope is the story of two good people from opposite sides of the political spectrum who will stop at nothing to find common ground. This play dramatizes the challenges and rewards of coming together during divided times.  

Playwright Joy Peskin is an editor and personal essayist. She developed Dear Hope, her first play, over a series of Hangar Theatre AIRS (Artist in Residency) fellowships, during which she worked on and workshopped the play in Ithaca.  Peskin explains: “Carrie Fisher’s advice to ‘‘take your broken heart, turn it into art’ resonated with me when my friendship with the man who inspired Jim’s character collapsed.  I have never aspired to be part of big-picture social or political change, but I’ve always believed in the power of personal connection. So I thought if I can make friends with someone who truly loves the current President, if I can understand why that is, that will be something. I tried. But I couldn’t. And I felt broken-hearted.”

Directing the show is Michael Barakiva, who recently stepped down after five years as artistic director of the Hangar Theatre. Michael is an NYC-based Armenian/Israeli American writer and director. He is a graduate of Vassar College and the Juilliard School, where he studied as an Andrew W. Mellon Fellow in Directing, and continues to serve as the artistic director of The Upstart Creatures. 

“My initial idea was to edit the hundreds of emails my friend and I had exchanged over the course of the year and turn them into a staged reading,” said Peskin. “But as Michael worked with me on this, he gently and patiently steered me toward fiction. Over many drafts, we started to chip away at the story of Jim and Hope, which is very different from my own story. We think this is ultimately a play about what can happen when people make sincere attempts at connection, understanding, and empathy.” 

Rick Holmes, who stars as Jim, is a member of Actor’s Equity and a graduate of  NYU’s MFA program. Jim has a dozen Broadway credits, and his Off-Broadway credits include roles at MTC, Primary Stages, ATC, and CSC. His television appearances include Dead To Me, The Resident, Tommy, The Politician, Fosse/Verdon, The Punisher, Modern Family, and  Atlanta. He has also appeared in films The Post, Irreplaceable You, The Girl In The Park, Melina and Melinda, and The Stepford Wives.

Emily Donahoe stars as Hope. She is an Actor’s Equity member with an MFA from the University of California/San Diego and a BA from Vassar College. She appeared in 33 Variations on Broadway; her Off-Broadway credits include roles at Playwrights Horizon, Signature Theatre, The Play Company, Theatreworks, Apparition Productions, and Keen Company. Her film and television appearances include Atlantic City Story, Handsome Harry, Zelimo, Weeki Wachee Girls, How Do You Type a Broken Heart, FBI, Bull, High Maintenance, Law & Order: SVU, Homeland, and As the World Turns. “Barakiva and Peskin are facilitating a profoundly critical conversation with Dear Hope,” said Donahue. “I am thrilled to be working on this intelligent, timely piece before what is possibly the most important election in American history. Take a break from writing postcards, phone banking, and bingeing the news, to witness something none of us have seen in a while--two people with opposing political views, attempting to engage deeply with ideas different than their own in the hopes of understanding and connecting with each other."  

The production and design team includes Sound Designer Jeremiah Turner, Video Designer/Producer Kaede Kai Kogo, Assistant Director Monica Jimenez, Stage Manager Egypt Dixon, Assistant Stage Manager Thomas Bertron, and Production Manager Adam Zonder. The Hangar thanks Partners in Flight CFCU Community Credit Union and Cayuga Radio Group, and Partner in the Arts Ithaca College. 

A pre-show chat will begin at 7:15 PM EST with a discussion of voter access and civic engagement. Leading the conversation will be Tompkins County League of Women Voters Co-President Sally Grubb and Cornell Votes President Patrick Mehler. A talk-back with cast and crew will follow the production.

 

Tickets

Thanks to the support of a generous donor, this event is free and open to the public.  Registration is required at hangartheatre.org/hope. We hope that this story and performance will inspire people everywhere to vote by November 3, 2020 (either by mail or in person). The performance will be available to view until then. While at times we may disagree, we hope never to disengage, and always to continue to dialogue!

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

 

About Art in our Communities®

The Bank of America Art in Our Communities Program was established in 2009 in order to share the company’s art collection with the widest possible audience. Comprising the art collections of the predecessor banks that are now part of Bank of America, the program offers museums and nonprofit galleries the opportunity to borrow complete or customized exhibitions at no cost. The public is able to enjoy new art installations at its local museums, while the museums themselves are able to generate vital revenue. Since 2009, more than 140 exhibitions have been loaned through this one-of-a-kind program.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

 

About Art in our Communities®

The Bank of America Art in Our Communities Program was established in 2009 in order to share the company’s art collection with the widest possible audience. Comprising the art collections of the predecessor banks that are now part of Bank of America, the program offers museums and nonprofit galleries the opportunity to borrow complete or customized exhibitions at no cost. The public is able to enjoy new art installations at its local museums, while the museums themselves are able to generate vital revenue. Since 2009, more than 140 exhibitions have been loaned through this one-of-a-kind program.
