Science Exhibit: A View From Space
Admission,
Cape Fear Museum, Downtown Wilmington
814 Market St.
(910)798-4350
Since the launch of the world’s first artificial satellite Sputnik in 1957, satellites have dramatically changed the way we study our planet.

Art Exhibit: School Pride
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington
3201 S. 17th St.
(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the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.”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 the subway, Gabey falls in love with a poster of Miss Turnstyles and is determined to find the girl of his dreams in a city of millions. Chip and Ozzie join the search but are quickly distracted. Chip gets taken for a ride by enthusiastic cab driver Hildy Esterhazy, and Ozzie is distracted by engaged anthropology student Claire de Loon. Featuring a rambunctious, beautiful score by Leonard Bernstein, a wacky book and wonderful lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, and show-stopping dances based on Jerome Robbins’s original choreography, On the Town hums with bounding energy.

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.

Art Exhibit: School Pride

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.

Since the launch of the world’s first artificial satellite Sputnik in 1957, satellites have dramatically changed the way we study our planet. A View From Space, a new, bilingual (Spanish and English), highly interactive, hands-on science exhibit, will allow visitors to see the world from a satellite’s perspective. 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. The exhibit was made possible with funds provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

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.

A View From Space, a new, bilingual (Spanish and English), highly interactive, hands-on science exhibit, will allow visitors to see the world from a satellite’s perspective. 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. The exhibit was made possible with funds provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

(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.
