From October 15, 2018 through February 28, 2019, Dumbarton Oaks will host an exhibition on the medieval story The Juggler of Notre Dame, its reception from 1873 to the present day, and the broader context of medieval revivalism. The exhibit will display video material, sound materials, interactive screens, and tablets, but the focus will be on medieval objects and modern ones relating to medievalism. The exhibit will be flanked by appearances by authors of graphic novels and children’s books, concerts of musical versions, scholarly lectures, juggling performances, and more. The museum shop will also have a range of unique items for everyone from medievalist scholars to children.
