Dream exhibit at the Folger Library

The dreamworld was a popular subject for medieval and renaissance people. Now a new exhibit at Washington D.C. Folger Library looks at the world of sleep and dreams through the eyes of William Shakespeare and others. Philip Kennicott of the Washington Post has a review.

To Sleep, Perchance to Dream will be open through May 30, 2009 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday at the Folger Shakespeare Library, 201 East Capitol St. SE. Admission is free.
