"Beauty Persists: Dance Installations at the Katonah Museum of Art" is a two-day outdoor performance series of site-adaptive contemporary dance presented by Megan Williams Dance Projects. A diverse cast of 9 dancers will take over the Museum grounds on July 17 and 18, transforming the outdoor space through rigorous explorations of mid-pandemic joy, struggle and the desire for unity during these challenging times. The hour-long dance event will be presented twice each day and will include a post-performance conversation with the artists. Registration required. Free with Museum admission. To register for the performance, reserve a timed ticket for the same time slot as either the 1:00 PM or 3:30 PM performance. Please be aware that elements of this event involve walking and standing as the dancers perform around the grounds of the Museum.
