Start with Atelier at SBMA 5 - 7pm
Melville's masterpiece is at the center of this multi-faceted feast of interpretations. Listen in as featured artist Tony de los Reyes and composer Jake Heggie, whose opera Moby-Dick premiered in Dallas earlier this year, discuss the motifs and melodies that made this classic their mutual muse.
Don a literary tattoo created from Melville's text and given an artistic twist. Sip your ration of grog at a rum tasting provided by The Hungry Cat, featuring five varieties from five ports of call, and get swept away with Whiteness of the Whale martinis and ocean-inspired hors d'oeuvres.
