Karpeles Museum Presents “Milton’s Hell in Voice and Image”
DULUTH, Minn. – Tonight, Tuesday, April 3, an exhibit is opening up at the Karpeles Manuscript Museum in Duluth depicting Milton’s Hell.
Professor Karmen Lenz, Ph.D. will give a gallery talk introducing a multimedia art and video exhibit titled “Milton’s Hell in Voice and Image.”
The video merges a spoken word reading of the language describing the epic struggle between God and sin from Milton’s Paradise Lost while showing original paintings based on these scenes.
Kathryn Lenz, sister of the professor, created twelve original paintings depicting scenes from the poem.
Those will be on display at the museum through April 30.
On Sunday, April 8th at 2:30 p.m., the video will be shown again, followed by a chamber concert as part of Karpeles’ Coffee, Cake, and Chamber Music Series.
Sam Black and Friends will play music inspired by Milton’s epic.
The Karpeles Manuscript Museum is located at 902 1st Street.
