About the event

Poet in New York (1940), Frederico Garcia Lorca’s most beloved work, was inspired not only by the poet’s 1929 visit to the eponymous city, but by a lesser known adventure to Vermont, which set Lorca's pastoral imagination in motion. Bringing together photographs, letters, poems, and translations by Lorca and his American friend Philip Cummings, alongside other biographical materials, this exhibition captures an intense moment in Lorca’s life and a vision of a Vermont that has ceased to exist. “Lorca in Vermont” will complement an exhibition at the New York Public Library entitled “Back Tomorrow: Lorca in New York.”

This exhibit "Lorca in Vermont" is part of LORCA IN NEW YORK: A CELEBRATION (April 5-July 21, 2013), the largest-ever festival in North America celebrating the work of acclaimed Spanish poet and playwright Federico García Lorca. Presented by Fundación Federico García with support from Acción Cultural Española. For more information about the festival please visit http://lorcanyc.com
