Middlebury College Museum of Art

A Month of Shakespeare

Shakespeare First Folio

For the month of February an original Shakespeare First Folio, printed in 1623, will be on display in our Overbrook Gallery. Middlebury is Vermont’s only venue for this rare book—on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library in celebration of the 400th anniversary of the bard’s death—and the College has organized a slate of events around the exhibition.
