2011 Spring Opening Gala!

Dear Ballard Institute Friends,

We would like to invite you to attend the spring opening of the Ballard Institute, and two new exhibitions dedicated to our namesake, Frank Ballard, in a gala opening celebration on Sunday, March 27 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Ballard Museum on the University of Connecticut’s Depot Campus.  The exhibitions—Frank Ballard: An Odyssey of a Life in Puppetry (curated by UConn Puppet alumna Rolande Duprey) and Frank Ballard: Roots and Branches—examine Ballard’s life and work, his creation of the UConn’s famed Puppet Arts Program, and his many spectacular puppet productions.  The event will include free museum tours, refreshments, and a program of Gilbert and Sullivan songs sung by members of the UConn Music Department’s Opera Studio.

Again, we are located at:

Ballard Museum on the University of Connecticut’s Depot Campus

6 Bourne Place, Unit 5212
