Hotel Cassiopeia by Charle Mee is a whimsical play about love, loss and the triggers of emotional memories. American artist Joseph Cornell’s work comes to life before our eyes as we meet movie stars, famous artists and familiar music along the way. Join us in a life size memory box inspired by Joseph Cornell’s life and work as we learn more about what inspired the celebrated artist and how we can connect to our own memories through his work.

You can learn more about the work of Joseph Cornell by visiting the Art Institute of Chicago, which houses the largest collection of his work.
