The wunderkammer, or cabinet of curiosities, has a long history as a collection of objects arranged in categories imposed by the collector, sometimes comprised of specimens from natural history, other times works of art, and at others an assortment of fabricated objects to fool or astonish. The cabinets origin lies in the 15th century Renaissance when scientists, scholars, monarchs, and aristocrats began to organize collections based on scholarship, status, and a love for the exotic and bizarre. Curator of the exhibit, AIB faculty member Bonnell Robinson, will be giving a presentation in the gallery beginning at 1:15pm.

All the Way Staring Bryan Cranston Saturday | 2:00pm | Loeb Drama Center | 64 Brattle St. Cambridge 1963. An assassin’s bullet catapults Lyndon B. Johnson into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, this charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into the Civil Rights Act, a tinderbox issue emblematic of a divided America. In the Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright’s vivid dramatization of LBJ’s first year in office, means versus ends plays out on the precipice of modern America. The A.R.T.’s new production stars Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”) as LBJ, Brandon J. Dirden (The Piano Lesson) as Martin Luther King, Jr., Michael McKean (A Mighty Wind) as J. Edgar Hoover, and Reed Birney (“House of Cards”) as Hubert Humphrey.
