From the Cedar Chest: Southern Quilting, 1830’s to Today @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Sep 24 all-day

An exploration of the rich tradition of quilting in our local Big Bend community, spanning several generations and cultures to celebrate the beloved art of quiltmaking. For two years, a committee of local quilters and quilt collectors and the Gadsden Arts curator research and identified historic to contemporary quilts in private and public collections across several counties in North Florida. Several of the quillts have been completed by multiple family members over a period of decades as patterns were passed down to younger generations. This exhibition discusses the story of an art form that was utilitarian, uniquely cultural, and inherently social, that bridges gaps between generations and finds commonalities between cultures.

Disney’s upcoming film journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny.

The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon, and utilizes pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way.

Offering tickets between $8-10, purchases support the Challenger Learning Center’s community outreach and educational programming.

The Florida A&M University Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery is pleased to present Walls Turned Sideways are Bridges: Narratives of Necessity from August 26 – December 6, 2019. The opening reception will be held in The Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery on Thursday, September 5.

Walls Turned Sideways are Bridges: Narratives of Necessity is collaborative exhibition co-curated by award-winning artist, William Cordova, and curator, Marie Vickles.

The exhibition contains mainstream and underground newspapers, magazines and other alternative news from 1965-1982, historical articles from mainstream media sources, such as Time Magazine, Newsweek, Jet, Ebony, New York Times Magazine, and photography by Ducho Dennis, Ilka Hartmann, Bev Grant, Steven Shames, Michael Abramson.

Experience the “out-of-this-world” moment (literally) when the United States of America achieved exploration greatness with APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition.
