Storrs Campus
William Benton Museum of Art

The Benton is pleased to present “A Conversation with Edmond Chibeau” on Thursday, October 2, at 5 pm. The performance writer will speak about the origin and development of 'Farmerettes,' a play he is writing about the Women's Land Army that brought thousands of women from all walks of life into rural America to take over farm work after the men were called to wartime service. A staged reading of selected scenes from the play will follow. This program is in conjunction with the museum exhibition, "Victory is a Question of Stamina: Posters from the First World War." This program is directed by Ellen Brodie and supported by a grant from CT Humanities.
