“Finding Dory” in IMAX 3D @ Challenger Learning Center IMAX Theatre
Jul 1 – Jul 7 all-day

Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” welcomes back to the big screen everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), who’s living happily in the reef with Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks) and Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence). When Dory suddenly remembers that she has a family out there who may be looking for her, the trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s prestigious Marine Life Institute, a rehabilitation center and aquarium. In an effort to find her mom (voice of Diane Keaton) and dad (voice of Eugene Levy), Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank (voice of Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey (voice of Ty Burrell), a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny (voice of Kaitlin Olson), a nearsighted whale shark. Deftly navigating the complex inner workings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships and family.

“A Beautiful Planet 3D” in IMAX 3D @ The Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

Starting on Friday, April 29, experience a breathtaking portrait of Earth from space, providing a unique perspective and increased understanding of our planet and galaxy as never seen before. Made in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the film features stunning footage of our magnificent blue planet — and the effects humanity has had on it over time — captured by the astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS). From space, Earth blazes at night with the electric intensity of human expansion — a direct visualization of our changing world. But it is within our power to protect the planet. As we continue to explore and gain knowledge of our galaxy, we also develop a deeper connection to the place we all call home. From IMAX Entertainment and Toni Myers — the acclaimed filmmaker behind celebrated IMAX® documentaries Blue Planet, Hubble 3D, and Space Station 3D — A Beautiful Planet presents an awe-inspiring glimpse of Earth and a hopeful look into the future of humanity.

“A Beautiful Planet 3D” will play daily for three months. For more information and showtimes, visit www.ChallengerTLH.com.

Exhibition: the The Artists’ League Annual Summer Salon, The Artful Nude and The Tallahassee Watercolor Society’s 28th Tri-State Juried Water Media Exhibition @ Museum of Fine Arts, Florida State University
Jul 1 all-day
Exhibition: the The Artists’ League Annual Summer Salon, The Artful Nude and The Tallahassee Watercolor Society’s 28th Tri-State Juried Water Media Exhibition @ Museum of Fine Arts, Florida State University | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

As the population dwindles in summer when many leave Tallahassee for a semester of research or travel, the University tempo changes. Programming at MoFA changes, too: summer is a great time to work with our regional partners. In mid-May, two new exhibitions will open at MoFA: the Tallahassee Watercolor Society annually mounts a juried competition from the tri-state region and the Museum’s Artists’ League hosts a thematic project. This season’s League concept has been based on life drawing since study of the nude human form has always been a staple of academic training. Concepts for exhibitions are interpreted broadly by League artists who do not feel restricted by the themes, in this case “the artful nude.”
2016 is a milestone for the Artists’ League as a membership body: the League had a first exhibition in 1986 consisting primarily of artists who had either graduated from the arts programs at the University or who were in Tallahassee after attaining degrees elsewhere. They were a group of friendly, highly productive artists interested in the idea of lectures, workshops and group exhibition opportunities. Ceramist Cecelia Cunningham and metalsmith Peggy Simmons were part of that first historic exhibition thirty years ago. The League now has a roster of 200 members. When Curator of Education Viki D. Thompson Wylder stepped in as coordinator in 1999, the vitality and variety of League offerings increased; under her leadership—and through the efforts of League program directors and members—a season-long series of events engages artists who continue their alliance with the Museum.

The Tallahassee Watercolor Society’s 28th Tri-State Juried Water Media Exhibition opens at FSU’s Museum of Fine Arts Friday, May 20, 2016. Artists from Florida, Alabama and Georgia competed to have their paintings included in this exhibit. Don Andrews, a nationally known watercolor artist, juried fifty paintings from the many submitted to be displayed. The public is invited to meet the artists and join in the celebration Friday, May 20, 2016 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Awards will be presented at that time for the paintings judged to be the best.

The 28th Tri-State Juried Water Media exhibition can be seen at the Museum of Fine Art through July 1, 2016. MOFA is open Monday-Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and Saturdays during the exhibition 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Don’t miss this explosion of color and creativity from regional artists.
