Cuba @ Challenger Learning Center
Mar 20 all-day
Cuba @ Challenger Learning Center

Cuba is now playing at the Challenger Learning Center IMAX theatre! Cuba’s vibrant culture, meticulously maintained colonial architecture, and pristine ecosystems provide a vivid window into the island’s history and spirit in this 4K IMAX documentary. Cuba will transport audiences across breathtaking landscapes, under the ocean surface to iridescent reefs, and into streets throbbing with music and dance in the heart of Havana. Through the eyes of Cuban artists, historians, and scientists, the film provides an intimate look this vivacious island nation. Tickets ($6.00-8.00) can be purchased in advance by calling (850) 645-7796 or visiting the Challenger Learning Center at 200 S. Duval Street on Kleman Plaza, Downtown Tallahassee. Cuba will remain in the film library after its initial run and will continue to be available for group and field trip reservations.

Le Sang Noir: Brandon Ballengée @ FSU Museum of Fine Arts
Mar 20 all-day

In 2010, Louisiana-based artist and biologist Brandon Ballengée saw firsthand the largest environmental disaster in United States history—the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Le Sang Noir (“Black Blood”) is a visual response to this tragedy. Locked in jars, suspended in alcohol, posed in petri dishes, Ballengée’s forms tell stories of species altered and obliterated. His prints, sculptures, and field projects are a narrative of human impact in the Anthropocene. By implicating us in their creation, the projects also inspire us to learn more about life in these complex, often fragile ecosystems. Le Sang Noir will be on display from February 15 through March 31. Museum hours are Monday-Friday 9-4 and Saturday and Sunday 1-4. There will be an opening reception, Friday, February 15, 2019 from 6-8pm and Family Day at the Museum Saturday, February 16, from 10-4. Guests can meet the artist, Brandon Ballengée and there will be informal artist talks, crafts and educational games for diverse audiences. Metered parking is available on the main level of the Call Street garage; after 4:30 and on weekends all legal spaces are available to visitors.

Visualizing the Invisible “Jungle” of Calais @ FSU Museum of Fine Arts

Visualizing the Invisible "Jungle" of Calais @ FSU Museum of Fine Arts

Since 1999, individuals fleeing conflicts or escaping poverty in the Balkans, the Horn of Africa, Sudan, and the Middle East have come to Calais in hopes of crossing the English Channel on the boats, trains, trucks, and buses that move between France and the U.K. Temporary camps – often referred to as “jungles” – have proliferated, and their periodic demolition has come to be seen as emblematic of the “European migration crisis.” Eric Leleu’s photographs document this changing landscape of watchtowers, barbed-wire fences, flooded zones, walls, and surveillance cameras and explore these failed attempts to control migration and the resilient presence of migrants in and around Calais. Museum hours are Monday-Friday 9-4 and Saturday and Sunday 1-4. There will be an opening reception, Friday, February 15, 2019 from 6-8pm. Metered parking is available on the main level of the Call Street garage; after 4:30 and on weekends all legal spaces are available to visitors.

In the spring of May 1968, an occupation begun by a group of French students grew to one of the largest demonstrations in modern history. Striking workers and protesters brought Paris to a halt, and the posters and graffiti that amplified their message have become part of our visual vernacular. With original artwork that was posted on the streets of Paris fifty years ago and contemporary prints influenced by current student led gun violence protests, this exhibition explores the role of graphic art in political organizing. Museum hours are Monday-Friday 9-4 and Saturday and Sunday 1-4. There will be an opening reception, Friday, February 15, 2019 from 6-8pm and lectures by Dr. Tenley Bick and Denise Bookwalter on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 6pm. Metered parking is available on the main level of the Call Street garage; after 4:30 and on weekends all legal spaces are available to visitors.
