Girls Can Save the Earth! Day Camp @ The Oasis Center for Women and Girls
Apr 19 all-day

During our Spring session of girls empowerment camps, campers will learn about trailblazing women in history and use that inspiration to focus on how they want to make their own positive impact in the world. Our campers are encouraged to dream big and embrace themselves and their strengths by breaking down barriers that divide girls, such as socioeconomic status, race, body image, and family structure. Through fun experiences and interactions, The Oasis Center encourages leadership development, community service, teamwork, decision-making skills, and good communication, while promoting self-esteem and healthy living. The camp is designed for girls ages five to thirteen, and tuition is offered on a sliding fee scale with a limited number of need-based scholarships available.

LESLIE WALLACE-COON SCULPTURE @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Apr 20 all-day
LESLIE WALLACE-COON SCULPTURE @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum

Leslie Wallace-Coon takes inspiration from everyday life, of the visible world of people, animals, and her surroundings. Her sculptures and bas-reliefs tell stories of the humorous contractions and extremes of relationships she witnesses between people and their pets. Domestic animals are an inspiration because of the humorous, physical, and “superimposed” human characteristics she sees in them. Her goal as an artist is to create work that compels the viewer to look, laugh, and become caught up the details. Wallace-Coon has work in public and private collections in the region and owns the Bowery Art Gallery in Apalachicola.
Exhibition admission: $10 for nonmember adults (includes 6 exhibitions); free for Gadsden Arts Center & Museum members, free for children ages 17 and under. Exhibition admission-free days: March 2 / April 6 / May 4

Norman Rockwell in the 1960s @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Apr 20 all-day

The Gadsden Arts Center & Museum is pleased to host Norman Rockwell in the 1960s, an exhibition of prints organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, focusing on illustrations he created for magazines during that turbulent decade. In 1963, the artist ended his almost 5 decade-long association with The Saturday Evening Post and began to search for new artistic challenges. Rockwell left behind his beloved story-telling scenes popular in the Post and threw himself into the visual documentation of social issues and current events like school integration, the moon landing, and the murder of civil rights workers.
