Arts exhibit advertisement - Elizabeth I: Ruler and Legend

Got this weird art exhibit advertisement this week that the sender thought would interest our neighborhood - here's the info:

"I hope you will consider forwarding this email to your members and help us get the word out about an exciting exhibit about to open at the Cameron Village Regional Library. The exhibit is called “Elizabeth I: Ruler and Legend” and focuses on the brilliant monarch who ruled England from 1558 until 1603. This colorful exhibition explores Queen Elizabeth I’s many accomplishments; the court intrigues that sought to dethrone her, the reasons she never married, her patronage of the arts, and her intense interest in exploring and accessing new lands for England. She was a remarkable woman whose life continues to fascinate and inspire four hundred years after her death. The exhibit will be at the library from June 30 through August 11. The opening celebration begins Friday, June 30 at 5:30 PM with a performance by the Renaissance Faire choir. Then at 6:00 an Elizabeth I impersonator arrives along with members of her court. The queen will lead a procession upstairs to the exhibition room where there will be food and a dance performance."
