Next year is the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death in 1616. And like cultural institutions worldwide that have a connection to the Bard, the University Of Texas’ Harry Ransom Center is rolling out its celebration of the most venerated English playwright with the sprawling exhibit “Shakespeare in Print and Performance.”

Mined from the Ransom Center’s vast collections, the sprawling exhibit features hundreds of years of Shakespeare-related performance materials, set designs and period costumes.

Details: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (with extended hours Thursday to 7 p.m.), noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday through May 29. Free; donation welcome. 300 W. 21st St. 512-471-8944, hrc.utexas.edu.
