Save the Date for This Musical & More Coming in the Summer
If you didn’t know, famed painter Georgia O’Keeffe has a rich connection to Lake George, which will be celebrated this summer with a new musical called Nearby Faraway. The production will take place at the Carriage House at Fort William Henry in July to commemorate the centennial of O’Keeffe’s “breakthrough summers” in Lake George. The event will be more than a musical, though, with additional activities and more as part of an “O’Keeffe-Fest.”
In the meantime, you can check out O’Keeffe’s Pattern of Leaves, shown here, which is on display at The Hyde Collection through May.
