1. Searching for Ingmar Bergman (Dec. 10th-11th) at the Princeton Garden Theatre. Ingmar Bergman was a Swedish film director and producer. In this documentary, the director, Margarethe von Trotta, paints an intimate picture of Bergman that goes beyond how the public eye typically portrays him.
2. Fall Student Reading (Dec. 12th) at the Donald G. Drapkin Studio in the Lewis Center for the Arts Complex. Students from the various fiction, poetry, screenwriting, and translation courses will be reading short excerpts from their pieces. It will be a great opportunity to hear from a variety of students — some delving into creative writing for the first time and others preparing for their creative writing thesis.
3. The Planets by Princeton University Ballet (Dec. 12th-13th) at Frist Film and Performance Theater. With many of the student groups on campus focusing on hip-hop or contemporary, it is always good to appreciate a different medium. The performers will be dancing to Gustav Holst’s orchestral suite “The Planets,” and the show includes both classical and contemporary ballet.
4. Nature’s Nation: American Art and Environment (until Jan. 6th, 2019) at the Princeton University Art Museum. This may be your last chance to see this exhibition at the Princeton University Art Museum. Showcasing over 120 pieces of art, this exhibition includes pieces from across genres and time periods. It traces how American artists have incorporated the environment around them into their works.
5. Free Fridays at the Whitney at the Whitney Museum of American Art. With winter break coming up this week, why not take Friday as a chance to take the train to New York City? The Whitney Museum of American Art has free Friday evenings (or pay what you wish) from 7 to 10 P.M. The Whitney currently has an exhibition of Andy Warhol paintings that will be on display until March 31, 2019.
