Shakespeare's First Folio in Montana!

The University of Montana is pleased to be named Montana’s host for "First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on national tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library,” sponsored by the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Library and the Montana Museum of Art & Culture (MMAC).

The Folger Shakespeare Library, in association with the Cincinnati Museum Center and the American Library Association, is touring the exhibition to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico in 2016. The MMAC will be the only location in Montana to display the Folio during its tour around the country.

The First Folio exhibition will be on display in MMAC and open to the public May 9-31, 2016. 

Thank you to the Folger Shakespeare Library. The tour is made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and by the support of, Vinton and Sigrid Cerf, the British Council, and other generous donors.
