WEFOUNDIconoclastic Departures: Mary Shelley After Frankenstein : Essays in Honor of the Bicentenary of Mary Shelley's Birth


No new Toronto restaurant demonstrates more culinary ambition than Drake One Fifty, which opened in October. The 200-seat eatery is the first serious offspring of the Drake Hotel, which over the last decade spurred its West End neighborhood into hipness. Owner Jeff Stober wanted to transport that magic to the conservative financial district, and the result is a modern brasserie infused with the Drake’s iconoclastic spirit—think tradition with a twist reflected in the food (say, truffled lobster pizza) and ambiance (art installations, a soundstage for music). At 150 York St.; 416-363-6150; drakeonefifty.ca .

Summer is no excuse to miss out on the arts: it’s festival season! Catch high-altitude dance in Vail, Bill Murray’s poetry recital in California wine country, Picasso in Paris, and riveting theater just about everywhere.

The spirit of jazz pioneer Louis Armstrong lives on in the borough he called home for more than two decades, as this summer festival enters its fourth year. Pianist, bandleader, and fellow New Orleanian Jon Batiste (best known as Stephen Colbert’s music man) curates this year’s lineup, headlining with his group Stay Human and inviting a starry cohort of guests including The Dap-Kings and Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks along for a day of diverse jazz offerings. Flushing Meadows Corona Park; armstrongswonderfulworld.com .

In 1970—after he’d already directed Easy Rider and starred alongside James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause —the iconoclastic Renaissance man Dennis Hopper mounted his first photography show, including more than 400 of his own snaps, at the Fort Worth Art Center Museum. The collection, shot over the previous decade, included pictures of Hopper’s many high-profile friends from across the cultural spectrum (e.g. Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and Paul Newman). The newly unearthed photos will be shown in a new context at L.A.’s Kohn Gallery. Kohn Gallery, 1227 N. Highland Ave.; kohngallery.com .

Students interested in taking part in the Kenyon-Rome off-campus study program in the fall of 2018 must complete an interview with the Center for Global Engagement by Jan. 26, 2018.

We would like to extend sincere thanks to all who have already donated to the Kenyon Fund and Kenyon Parents Fund. Your participation makes a difference.
