6:30 PM Talk: Mummies, Marbles and Metals Mummies, Marbles and Medals: Why the British Museum has a Prints and Drawings Collection" The lecture explores how the British Museum, famous today for its archaeological holdings from the ancient worlds also have one of the world's greatest graphic collections. In examining this largely accidental history, the lecture will also look at how prints and drawings help us understand how artists planned their work, the historical roots of fake news and what connects the world's most valuable baseball card to the birth of advertising in Georgian London. Hugo Chapman has been the Simon Sainsbury Keeper of the Department of Prints and Drawings since 2011, he joined the British Museum as a specialist in Italian drawing in 1995. During his time there he has organized shows on Michelangelo and Italian Renaissance drawings and is currently working on an exhibition about Piranesi. Speaker: Hugo Chapman, The Simon Sainsbury Keeper of Prints & Drawings, The British Museum

7:30 PM Stage: Kiss My Aztec When the Spanish set their sights on Mesoamerica and its riches, they will destroy anyone and anything that keeps them from conquering and claiming it all for themselves. But the Aztecs are like, "Hell, no!" This fresh, irreverent and outrageous satire could only spring forth from the insanely hilarious mind of John Leguizamo, last seen at the Playhouse in his acclaimed one-man show Latin History for Morons. Featuring a fusion of bolero, hip hop, merengue and rap, Kiss My Aztec! celebrates, elevates and commemorates Latinx culture in an uproarious new musical. Please note John Leguizamo will be behind-the-scenes this time — other fantastic actors will be performing!
