Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theatre Festival Invites Patrons to Meet Featured Artist Today

Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theatre Festival Invites Patrons to Meet Featured Artist TodayA cocktail party fundraiser for the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival will introduce Topeka, Kansas artist Joseph Keehn II to the community at the Sage Inn and Lounge today, August 2, 2014, 4-5pm.

Keehn created an art installation for the William Inge plays, An Otherwise Hopeless Evening, that played in Kansas City, during the Inge Centennial last year. He will be creating an original installation for the plays at the Provincetown Festival's Tennessee Williams' Circle of Friends which runs September 25 - 28 this year at Sage Inn & Lounge.

An Otherwise Hopeless Evening is a mash-up of rarely seen short melodramas written by 1950's playwright William Inge that deal with homosexuality and identity in the mid-West.

"I'm inviting people to contribute to this artwork around the themes of domesticity, homosexuality and support,' Keehn says. He asks that those interested bring articles they consider might offer support in some way, whether financial, like bills, coins or checks, or physical support like support bras, jockstraps or neckties. All contributions have the potential to become part of the installation he will create.

Some guests will also receive signed original drawings and prints by the artist. "I feel a kindred spirit with Inge," Keehn says, "We're both from conservative Kansas, where the norm for homosexuals in Inge's day was to keep your identity private and at home. Keehn's art installation will embody ideas about privacy and identity in Provincetown's varied communities and in the writings of Inge and Tennessee Williams.
