While dramatic tableaux brought Daumier’s The Uprising to life downstairs, visitors throughout the museum experienced a valentine to the arts–literature, music, culinary, costume, and, of course, theater and visual–during Phillips after 5 with Arena Stage. Stay tuned for a surrealist, crowd-sourced story about Morris Louis’s Seal created in a group writing game in the galleries that night. We’ll publish it here and on Arena Stage’s Stage Banter blog.
