The Wadsworth Atheneum is giving up the goods for free this weekend with a couple of special events, including two talks by Pepón Osorio, the artist behind this freaky barber chair sculpture. Osorio will give a lecture in the Atheneum's Aetna Theater Thursday, Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. and be part of a group chat including our friend Will Wilkins from RAW, Saturday, Oct. 30 at 1 p.m.
Saturday will be a Community Day at the Atheneum participatory art activities, live music and dance, museum tours, snacks and the film Akeelah and the Bee [torture porn?-ed]. Seriously though, free days like this are a great opportunity to take advantage of one of Hartford's true gems. We know you'll think "It Wads-worth it!"
