31st Art in Gadsden Regional Exhibition of Fine Art @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Jun 15 – Aug 24 all-day

This annual tradition of Gadsden Arts showcases recent art by the area’s top artists and artists new to the region. Art in Gadsden reached its 30th year in 2018, a milestone for the museum as this was the foundation for the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum. The founders of the Art in Gadsden exhibition, Beth Appleton and David Harbaugh, wanted to bring fine art to Gadsden County, foster the careers of local artists, and draw the community together through this special event. Beginning in 1989, Art in Gadsden was displayed in empty downtown storefronts in Quincy, all put together and organized by a dedicated and all volunteer community. This exhibition draws visitors and patrons from across the region each year, and is an exciting opportunity for regional artists to share their work and for Gadsden Arts to celebrate the creativity within our community.

The juror for the 31st Art in Gadsden will be Anne Gilroy. Anne Gilroy is the curator of the Thomas Center Galleries and 352Arts for the City of Gainesville, Florida. Anne also works as a painter and writer, having completed a successful career writing and designing campaigns of public awareness for social justice issues.

APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition Now Playing at Challenger Learning Center @ Challenger Learning Center
Jul 12 – Sep 1 all-day

Experience the “out-of-this-world” moment (literally) when the United States of America achieved exploration greatness with APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition. Boasting “how far and how fast we have come,” as a nation, during a time where traveling to the moon was unthinkable, the brilliantly curated film pilots the audience through the lunar landing journey of avid preparation, anxious lift off and triumphant return. APOLLO 11 was made specifically for a giant screen at museums and science centers, offering an exclusive take into “the greatest and most complex exploration in Man’s history.”
Featuring a newly-discovered trove of never-before-seen 70 mm footage and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, the film offers a distinctive feature from the documentary genre, without narration. Here, the alluring nature of IMAX and unclassified audio recordings speak for themselves, even in its moments of restless silence. APOLLO 11 showcases the raw reality of humanity’s greatest achievements as the first to put men on the moon.
The 47 minute IMAX experience, APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition, excites family and friends of all ages to experience an American triumph at an affordable price. Offering tickets between $6-8, purchases support the Challenger Learning Center’s community outreach and educational programming. APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition is sponsored locally in part through the Council on Culture and Arts’ Cultural Grant Program, funded by the City of Tallahassee and Leon County.
