The Quest Begins: Opening Reception for Quixote at 400
Join us for light refreshments as we celebrate the opening of our newest temporary exhibit, “Illustrations of Don Quixote: Interpretation of Imagination” and kick off a semester of events across the UI, celebrating Cervantes’ masterwork and its impact over 400 years.
Illustrators have reimagined characters and themes of Don Quixote for centuries, from tilting at windmills and battling sheep, to searching for the beloved Dulcinea and fighting a lion. Explore artistic interpretations of Cervantes’ timeless tale of a dreamer, from the 1600s to the 1930s, through collected images from the Don Quixote Collection at the University of Iowa Libraries and Special Collections.
This event is free and open to the public.
