Shakespeare’s in the Alley: A Tribute to Bob Dylan
“Bob Dylan has given us jewels – bits of himself that will sparkle through the centuries.” – Skye
Shakespeare’s in the Alley features fabric banners that hang from the Museum’s soaring atrium ceiling. This immersive visual experience pays tribute to the poetry and socially-minded musical contributions of Jewish-American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. As the recipient of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, Dylan’s lyrics are forever cemented in the American literary canon including songs for human rights like “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.”
Created by Door County-based artist Skye, the banners are 57 inches wide and vary in length from 8 to 26 feet and were hand-stenciled, letter by letter, using fabric markers.
