A curators’ tour of Sculpture at Evergreen 6: Simultaneous Presence with five of the participating artists, the exhibition opening of From Mexico to Maine: Photographs by Duncan Whitaker and a performance by the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival will mark the 10th annual A Summer Evening at Evergreen, on Tuesday, June 29, at the university’s Evergreen Museum & Library. The event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.

The evening begins with an open house from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., when guests can meet Whitaker and Evergreen’s 11th artist in residence, Scott Sedar, a visual and theater artist. In conjunction with the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival’s annual summer residency in the Evergreen meadow, editions of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors and Moliere’s Scapin! drawn from the university’s Sheridan Libraries will be on display in the mansion’s drawing room, and in the North Wing, visitors can view the exhibition Baltimore’s Billy Baldwin and browse the museum gift shop.

At 6 p.m., the guest curators of Sculpture at Evergreen 6, architect Ronit Eisenbach and artist Jennie Fleming, will lead a tour of the exhibition, featuring performance art by Shannon Young and David Page. Throughout the evening, the artist team of Eric Leshinsky, C. Ryan Patterson and Fred Scharmen will host a kind of block party at its urban park installation that features chalk drawing, a community photo wall and a lemonade stand.

The evening concludes with a final rehearsal by the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival of Moliere’s Scapin! at 8 p.m. in the meadow. Set in Italy, the slapstick comedy tells the tale of a scheming servant who tricks two fathers out of money that their sons need to support their lovers. Visitors are invited to picnic on Evergreen’s grounds while enjoying the performance.
