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the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.”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.
Art Exhibit: State of the Art/Art of the State
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington
3201 S. 17th St.
(910) 395-5999
One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.

Admission,
NC Aquarium, Kure Beach
900 Loggerhead Rd.
(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.

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.

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.

One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.

Art Exhibit: Trashy Sea Art

NC Aquarium, Kure Beach
900 Loggerhead Rd.
(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.

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.

– 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.

Join us Monday, November 3 for a special screening event featuring a Q&A with filmmaker Ira Sachs. After the screening of his new film "Love is Strange," join us for an intimate Q&A with the filmmaker that all the critics are raving about. 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.

One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.

AFGHANASTAN, 2010 -- a team of photographers and journalists, embedded with the First Battalion, Eighth Marines (out of Camp Lejeune), began composing a Facebook page and website, which captured the stories and images of modern day Marines and their families. These social media pages (which to date have received over five million hits) became powerful tools for families and servicemen stationed overseas to communicate with each other. They also became the inspiration for a new a multi-media performance touring the nation during 2014/15. BASETRACK captures the words, images and stories of the First Battalion, Eighth Marines, military service personnel, veterans and their families. An engaging and engrossing theatrical experience, the live performance uses multimedia projections, spoken word and live contemporary music to tell the stories of America's military, as they struggle to cope with separation from their families, the uncertainties of war and returning to the civilian world. Part of a nationwide tour, the BASETRACK project raises awareness, promotes communication and focuses national attention on the issues facing our returning veterans -- inspiring them to become co-authors of history and providing civilians a candid look at the realities of those who went to the front line of war.

This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.

Art Exhibit: State of the Art/Art of the State
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington

(910) 395-5999
One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours).

Art Exhibit: Trashy Sea Art
Admission,
NC Aquarium, Kure Beach
900 Loggerhead Rd.
(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.
