It was a rainy (not to say explosive) weekend, yet despite the daunting weather, the arts not only endured but prevailed at the University as dance, song, theater, and conceptual art brightened up the Yard and its environs. Distinguished actor John Lithgow ’67 was on hand, as usual, to add a dramatic — and comic — flair to the series of lively events. Lithgow and President Drew Faust joined forces to honor jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman ’91 with this year’s Harvard Arts Medal. From chamber music to juggling to a cappella crooners, talented Harvard artists brought a world of color, culture, and sound to a few wet yet magical days.
