A two-character play produced by FUSION Theatre Company bringing the painters Anna Klumpke and Rosa Bonheur to life. As Anna grapples with her responsibility as executor of Rosa’s estate and artwork she flashes back to the sessions, years earlier, in which she painted Rosa’s portrait. With each line drawn and brush stroke, Anna finds herself falling in love with Rosa. Soon the feelings are mutual and blossom into a deeply personal and creative partnership. As the story unfolds, light is shed on such topics as gender formation, institutional changes in the art world and the perceived transgressive nature of female intimate companionship in a repressive society.


Museum Admission ranges between $3-$6.
