Photo-panel Exhibit on Display Feb. 22 through March 22


“Shakespeare,” a freestanding photo-panel exhibit, will be on display at the Burlington County Library in Westampton from Feb. 22 through March 22.

The exhibit was produced in collaboration with the Harry Ransom Center, the Department of Theater and Dance at the University of Texas at Austin and Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Shakespeare is the quintessential subject for a humanities program. Born into a culture formed by the great humanists of the Renaissance, he peopled the stage with characters that embody both the glory and riddle of being human.

Panel topics include: Images of Shakespeare; Queen Elizabeth; The Reformation; Shakespeare’s London; Elizabethan and Jacobean Life; The “Wooden O” and other theatres; The New Globe; Globes around the world; England becomes a sea power; The New World; Star-Crossed Lovers; and The First Folio.

The Burlington County Library is located at 5 Pioneer Boulevard off Woodlane Road in Westampton. For more information, call (609) 267-9660 or go to

Humanities Texas develops and supports diverse programs across the state, including lectures, oral history projects, teacher institutes, traveling exhibitions and documentary films. For more information, go to
