Since the launch of the world’s first artificial satellite Sputnik in 1957, satellites have dramatically changed the way we study our planet.

They can track a hurricane from space, send a satellite spinning into orbit around a model Earth, study incredible images of our planet captured by NASA’s Earth Observing System, and more. A View From Space is designed to introduce visitors to the latest and greatest of the Earth observing satellites and give them an appreciation for the value of studying Earth from space. A View From Space was created and is toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, Portland, Oregon.

Art Exhibit: School Pride
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington

(910) 395-5999
In observation of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) Cameron Art Museum, in collaboration with Countywide Community Development Corporation of Navassa, NC presents the exhibition School Pride: The Eastern NC Story An Installation by Willie Cole June 29-November 2, 2014. Nationally renowned artist Willie Cole is creating new installations investigating the closing of sixteen Cape Fear area schools and other aspects of desegregation in southeastern NC and its impact statewide. Cole states that the visual intent of this exhibition is to create “a multi-gallery installation that reflects the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.” Cole will look deeply into historical and found objects – from students who attended these schools, from regional museums, and from area families. Together, the juxtaposition of these objects will demonstrate a powerful narrative of the struggle of a community for equality in education. In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.

Kiss Me, Kate won the very first Tony for best musical in 1949 and has been delighting audiences ever since. This raucous and riotously funny play-within-a-play features two divorced – and flamboyantly egocentric – performers starring opposite one another in a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew.Eighteen of Cole Porter’s greatest songs are featured in this dazzling, charming, and romantic score, including “Another Op’nin’, Another Show”, “Wunderbar”, “So in Love”, “Always True to You in My Fashion”, “Brush up Your Shakespeare”, and “Too Darn Hot”. Witty, wondrous, and wickedly entertaining, Kiss Me, Kate is a valentine to show business in all its greasepaint and glory and will have you humming long after you leave the theatre.

In observation of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) Cameron Art Museum, in collaboration with Countywide Community Development Corporation of Navassa, NC presents the exhibition School Pride: The Eastern NC Story An Installation by Willie Cole June 29-November 2, 2014. Nationally renowned artist Willie Cole is creating new installations investigating the closing of sixteen Cape Fear area schools and other aspects of desegregation in southeastern NC and its impact statewide. Cole states that the visual intent of this exhibition is to create “a multi-gallery installation that reflects the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.” Cole will look deeply into historical and found objects – from students who attended these schools, from regional museums, and from area families. Together, the juxtaposition of these objects will demonstrate a powerful narrative of the struggle of a community for equality in education. In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.

This raucous and riotously funny play-within-a-play features two divorced – and flamboyantly egocentric – performers starring opposite one another in a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew.Eighteen of Cole Porter’s greatest songs are featured in this dazzling, charming, and romantic score, including “Another Op’nin’, Another Show”, “Wunderbar”, “So in Love”, “Always True to You in My Fashion”, “Brush up Your Shakespeare”, and “Too Darn Hot”. Witty, wondrous, and wickedly entertaining, Kiss Me, Kate is a valentine to show business in all its greasepaint and glory and will have you humming long after you leave the theatre.

(910) 395-5999
In observation of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) Cameron Art Museum, in collaboration with Countywide Community Development Corporation of Navassa, NC presents the exhibition School Pride: The Eastern NC Story An Installation by Willie Cole June 29-November 2, 2014. Nationally renowned artist Willie Cole is creating new installations investigating the closing of sixteen Cape Fear area schools and other aspects of desegregation in southeastern NC and its impact statewide. Cole states that the visual intent of this exhibition is to create “a multi-gallery installation that reflects the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.” Cole will look deeply into historical and found objects – from students who attended these schools, from regional museums, and from area families. Together, the juxtaposition of these objects will demonstrate a powerful narrative of the struggle of a community for equality in education. In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.

In observation of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) Cameron Art Museum, in collaboration with Countywide Community Development Corporation of Navassa, NC presents the exhibition School Pride: The Eastern NC Story An Installation by Willie Cole June 29-November 2, 2014. Nationally renowned artist Willie Cole is creating new installations investigating the closing of sixteen Cape Fear area schools and other aspects of desegregation in southeastern NC and its impact statewide. Cole states that the visual intent of this exhibition is to create “a multi-gallery installation that reflects the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.” Cole will look deeply into historical and found objects – from students who attended these schools, from regional museums, and from area families. Together, the juxtaposition of these objects will demonstrate a powerful narrative of the struggle of a community for equality in education. In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.

(910) 762-0570
Join Dr. LaVere, professor in the History Department at UNC Wilmington, for a booksigning and lecture about the Tuscarora War with an emphasis on the importance of North Carolina's geography in the war. About the book At dawn on September 22, 1711, over five hundred Tuscarora, Core, Neuse, Pamlico, Weetock, Machapunga, and Bear River Indian warriors swept down on the unsuspecting settlers living along Neuse and Pamlico Rivers of North Carolina. Over the next few days, they destroyed hundreds of farms and plantations and killed at least 140 men, women, children, slaves, and took about forty captives. And so began the Tuscarora War, North Carolina’s bloodiest colonial war and surely one of the most brutal. In a way, the North Carolina geography caused the war, drew it out, helped and hurt both Indian and colonist, and finally helped end it. Seating is limited, so advance registration is recommended.

Art Exhibit: School Pride

(910) 395-5999
In observation of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) Cameron Art Museum, in collaboration with Countywide Community Development Corporation of Navassa, NC presents the exhibition School Pride: The Eastern NC Story An Installation by Willie Cole June 29-November 2, 2014. Nationally renowned artist Willie Cole is creating new installations investigating the closing of sixteen Cape Fear area schools and other aspects of desegregation in southeastern NC and its impact statewide. Cole states that the visual intent of this exhibition is to create “a multi-gallery installation that reflects the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.” Cole will look deeply into historical and found objects – from students who attended these schools, from regional museums, and from area families. Together, the juxtaposition of these objects will demonstrate a powerful narrative of the struggle of a community for equality in education. In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.

Stroll beneath a canopy of centuries old live oaks, their cryptic limbs dripping with Spanish moss, and hear tales of murder and mayhem. And if you dare, tread upon the unmarked graves of thieves, murderers and other less pitiful souls. Come hear the dismal accounts behind our most unfortunate wretches and discover the poor lost souls that still linger in the Port City. Hear tales past and present, including the most recent encounters with these spirits (many of which have occurred during past tours). We have been researching the ghosts of downtown Wilmington since 1978. With 30 active sites the tour varies nightly. So join us on a family safe, 90-minute journey you will not soon forget.
