“Keith Haring: Radiant Vision,” “Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams” and “The World of Jan Brett” were all postponed, as were the Glimmerglobe Theatre’s productions of “The Tempest: and “A Moon for the Misbegotten.”
“These exhibitions represented the core of our 2020 season,” said the Fenimore. “They are now expected to draw large numbers to the area next spring and summer.”
