Fri 12/4 | 8-11pm $0 @ The Bubbler – Madison Public Library
Night Light: Of Beards and Men
Don’t shave those early-winter beards Gentlemen! Madison Central Library is proud to join with the Wisconsin Book Festival on Friday December 4th from 8-11pm at Central Library to celebrate all things facial-hair.
Come with mustaches coiffed for our Beard and Mustache contest judged by local barbers. Or add some cheer to your chin with Beard Baubles!
Unable to grow a chin sweater? No worries, make one with the Bubbler craft team and pose with your new creation in our photo booth with visiting photographer James Bellucci.
Just a few days after the end of Movember, we will celebrate with a book talk by Of Beards and Men author Christopher Oldstone Moore. Oldstone Moore makes the case that today’s bearded renaissance is part of a centuries-long cycle in which facial hairstyles have varied in response to changing ideals of masculinity. To a surprising degree, we find, the history of men is written on their faces.
No stranger to the intricacies of well-crafted hair, the work of local artist Romano Johnson will be on display in the Third Floor Diane Endres Ballweg Gallery for his “Blue Earth Angels” exhibition and video art display of “Hair Apparent”.
Grab a drink for Forequarter that is sure to put hair on chest… or you know, chin.
Music at 8pm, author talk begins at 9 with crafting happening all night long.
