Event

The Vagabond Puppeteers and Quahog Quire

Four New York City artists traveled through upstate NY in 1939, with the intention of helping farmers obtain electricity. But the summer of 1939 was also the time when The Dairy Farmers Union organized strikes to demand a better price for their milk. The artists (Jerry Oberwager, Mary Walton Pete Seeger, and Harriet Holtzman) chose puppetry to carry their message and joined the dairy farmers efforts, adapting their performances to help the strikers cause.

Join us for a screening of Puppetry and Politics in 1939: The Vagabond Puppeteers, a documentary by RISDs Winnie Lambrecht examining the three-month adventure through interviews with Oberwager and Seeger, and illustrated with artwork by Mary Walton and archival photographs from the period.

Plus, Bill Monroe and the Quahog Quire will perform union songs and work tunes of the era.
