STAMPS COME ALIVE!
MEET JOSEPH ROULIN, Vincent van Gogh's postman and friend.
SUNDAY JUNE 2 2:00
(Special rate for senior groups).
Come spend some time with Joseph Roulin, Vincent van Gogh’s postman and friend as the Museum becomes a café in Arles, France.
The program entitled “Vincent: A Portrait by the Postman Roulin” tells Van Gogh’s passionate story as a man and an artist. Van Gogh painted over twenty portraits of Roulin and his family that captured the spirit of his postman friend.
Award-winning actor Ted Zalewski becomes Roulin in this one-person show that he created to tell about Van Gogh’s life. He has performed at such venues as the Smithsonian, the National Theatre and the Normal Rockwell Museum. Reviews have called his presentations “humorous,” “spellbinding” and “unforgettable.”
These program are supported in part by a grant from the Weston Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
