“O, you are men of stones…”
I traveled into Chicago on Sunday, which is where I found this king.
I also found A Sunday on the Grand Jatte, Nighthawks, American Gothic, and the Grant Park Orchestra. It was something akin to cultural overload (Now I’m also bummed I missed Sunday in the Park).
The Grant Park Orchestra, which performs in an outdoor Gehry-designed concert hall, played an all-American program; I’ll have extended notes from that concert soon.
In the meantime, here’s a my picture of King Lear in context (he’s over 15 ft tall), and here’s a video where you find out just what he’s turning away from.
