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the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.”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.

– A new art installation, “What Comes Around, Goes Around” at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher focuses on the growing problem of marine debris. Artist and researcher Bonnie Monteleone created multi-media work incorporating plastic marine debris collected during her fieldwork studying 3 ocean gyres (an ocean circulation system) over nearly 10,000 nautical miles. The collected debris collected was electronically morphed into the famous print, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai. Each image also contains tangible pieces of plastics taken from the marine environment. “I chose to commandeer ‘The Great Wave’ in order to convey the message that it is a different ocean than what Hokusai saw less than 200 years ago,” said Monteleone. “The work beautifully depicts the ocean, the menace of plastic, how all of us are part of the problem and how we are the only solution.” “What Goes Around, Comes Around,” is an outreach component of Plastic Ocean Project, Inc., whose mission is to educate through field research, implement progressive outreach initiatives and incubate solutions to address the global plastic pollution problem. The installation will remain on exhibit until December 2014.

The old story of a man, a dream & a struggle to the death with killer furniture. The lost 70's cult classic is coming to the stage, live in 3-D this fall! In 1973 George Barry wrote, directed and produced Death bed: The Bed That Eats. It would not be officially released until 2003 (then on DVD) but would go on to become a cult classic through a pirated edition in Europe. Wilmington's own inventor Jock Brandis worked on Death Bed as a Gaffer and made The Bed actually "eat". Patton Oswlat made the rediscovered film famous through his material lamenting that someone put money into Death Bed but he can't get his work made. Jock is actually the guy Oswalt is making fun of for making The Bed. Gwenyfar has adapted the film to the stage and added a "making of" element to Act One.

NC Aquarium, Kure Beach

(910) 458-8257
– A new art installation, “What Comes Around, Goes Around” at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher focuses on the growing problem of marine debris. Artist and researcher Bonnie Monteleone created multi-media work incorporating plastic marine debris collected during her fieldwork studying 3 ocean gyres (an ocean circulation system) over nearly 10,000 nautical miles. The collected debris collected was electronically morphed into the famous print, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai. Each image also contains tangible pieces of plastics taken from the marine environment. “I chose to commandeer ‘The Great Wave’ in order to convey the message that it is a different ocean than what Hokusai saw less than 200 years ago,” said Monteleone. “The work beautifully depicts the ocean, the menace of plastic, how all of us are part of the problem and how we are the only solution.” “What Goes Around, Comes Around,” is an outreach component of Plastic Ocean Project, Inc., whose mission is to educate through field research, implement progressive outreach initiatives and incubate solutions to address the global plastic pollution problem. The installation will remain on exhibit until December 2014.

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.

The old story of a man, a dream & a struggle to the death with killer furniture. The lost 70's cult classic is coming to the stage, live in 3-D this fall! In 1973 George Barry wrote, directed and produced Death bed: The Bed That Eats. It would not be officially released until 2003 (then on DVD) but would go on to become a cult classic through a pirated edition in Europe. Wilmington's own inventor Jock Brandis worked on Death Bed as a Gaffer and made The Bed actually "eat". Patton Oswlat made the rediscovered film famous through his material lamenting that someone put money into Death Bed but he can't get his work made. Jock is actually the guy Oswalt is making fun of for making The Bed. Gwenyfar has adapted the film to the stage and added a "making of" element to Act One.

(910) 395-5999
Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers presents a traditional Sacred Harp Singing and invite you to join in the music. This dynamic form of a cappella social singing dates back to Colonial America, using a modern reprint of an 1844 songbook called "The Sacred Harp". Sacred Harp and related shape-note styles are the oldest continuous singing traditions in the United States. Surviving as a living tradition in parts of the South, notably Georgia and Alabama, Sacred Harp music has been discovered by new generations of singers who have spread the heritage across North America and to Australia and Europe. The music is loud, vigorous and intense. It is meant to be sung, not just observed. No previous experience is necessary. Learn more about Sacred Harp singing at fasola.org and this singing at http://bit.ly/WilmNCSacredHarp. Held in collaboration with WHQR.

Patton Oswlat made the rediscovered film famous through his material lamenting that someone put money into Death Bed but he can't get his work made.

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.

– A new art installation, “What Comes Around, Goes Around” at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher focuses on the growing problem of marine debris. Artist and researcher Bonnie Monteleone created multi-media work incorporating plastic marine debris collected during her fieldwork studying 3 ocean gyres (an ocean circulation system) over nearly 10,000 nautical miles. The collected debris collected was electronically morphed into the famous print, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai. Each image also contains tangible pieces of plastics taken from the marine environment. “I chose to commandeer ‘The Great Wave’ in order to convey the message that it is a different ocean than what Hokusai saw less than 200 years ago,” said Monteleone. “The work beautifully depicts the ocean, the menace of plastic, how all of us are part of the problem and how we are the only solution.” “What Goes Around, Comes Around,” is an outreach component of Plastic Ocean Project, Inc., whose mission is to educate through field research, implement progressive outreach initiatives and incubate solutions to address the global plastic pollution problem. The installation will remain on exhibit until December 2014.

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.

It would not be officially released until 2003 (then on DVD) but would go on to become a cult classic through a pirated edition in Europe. Wilmington's own inventor Jock Brandis worked on Death Bed as a Gaffer and made The Bed actually "eat". Patton Oswlat made the rediscovered film famous through his material lamenting that someone put money into Death Bed but he can't get his work made. Jock is actually the guy Oswalt is making fun of for making The Bed. Gwenyfar has adapted the film to the stage and added a "making of" element to Act One.

NC Aquarium, Kure Beach

(910) 458-8257
– A new art installation, “What Comes Around, Goes Around” at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher focuses on the growing problem of marine debris. Artist and researcher Bonnie Monteleone created multi-media work incorporating plastic marine debris collected during her fieldwork studying 3 ocean gyres (an ocean circulation system) over nearly 10,000 nautical miles. The collected debris collected was electronically morphed into the famous print, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai. Each image also contains tangible pieces of plastics taken from the marine environment. “I chose to commandeer ‘The Great Wave’ in order to convey the message that it is a different ocean than what Hokusai saw less than 200 years ago,” said Monteleone. “The work beautifully depicts the ocean, the menace of plastic, how all of us are part of the problem and how we are the only solution.” “What Goes Around, Comes Around,” is an outreach component of Plastic Ocean Project, Inc., whose mission is to educate through field research, implement progressive outreach initiatives and incubate solutions to address the global plastic pollution problem. The installation will remain on exhibit until December 2014.

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.

– A new art installation, “What Comes Around, Goes Around” at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher focuses on the growing problem of marine debris. Artist and researcher Bonnie Monteleone created multi-media work incorporating plastic marine debris collected during her fieldwork studying 3 ocean gyres (an ocean circulation system) over nearly 10,000 nautical miles. The collected debris collected was electronically morphed into the famous print, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai. Each image also contains tangible pieces of plastics taken from the marine environment. “I chose to commandeer ‘The Great Wave’ in order to convey the message that it is a different ocean than what Hokusai saw less than 200 years ago,” said Monteleone. “The work beautifully depicts the ocean, the menace of plastic, how all of us are part of the problem and how we are the only solution.” “What Goes Around, Comes Around,” is an outreach component of Plastic Ocean Project, Inc., whose mission is to educate through field research, implement progressive outreach initiatives and incubate solutions to address the global plastic pollution problem. The installation will remain on exhibit until December 2014.

Love is Strange: After 40 years together Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) tie the knot in lower Manhattan. Just as quickly, George loses his job and the newly minted lovers are forced to find separate, if temporary, living situations. George takes up residence with two cops (Cheyenne Jackson and Manny Perez), while Ben is forced into close quarters with his nephew (Darren E. Burrows), his wife (Marisa Tomei) and their teenage son, Joey (Charlie Tahan). Sparkling performances by John Lithgow and Alfred Molina turn Love is Strange into a graceful tribute to the beauty of commitment in the face of adversity.
