Ballet Austin's production of Hamlet was performed at the Long Center for the performing Arts in Austin Texas from February 13-15, 2009. Shakespeare's age-old chilling story of love and revenge is modernized by Stephen Mills' evocative ballet Hamlet. Set to Philip Glass' poignant music, with Armani-inspired costumes, and an innovatively futuristic set, Hamlet is a gripping balletic portrayal of suspenseful and tragic human struggles.

The Art of Botanical Illustration is a wonderfully laid out Pachyderm presentation that explores the history and development of botanical art through the years. It was not always possible or practical to transport plants, thus it was left up to artists to document and record findings from explorers. The University of Minnesota has gone above and beyond in describing the collaboration of art and science in the facet of botanical illustration.
