  • North Carolina Museum of Art
    Looking South: Photographs by Eudora Welty

    Exhibit through September 3, 2017
    East Building, Level B, Julian T. Baker Jr. Photography Gallery; Free
    Website and Information: Please Click Here!
    This exhibition features a portfolio of 18 photographs by the acclaimed American novelist and short story writer Eudora Welty (1909–2001), produced by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History in 1992 (with Welty selecting the images and printing techniques) to represent the range of her photographs from the 1930s and early 1940s.
    Welty’s iconic images of the South during this time bring to mind the photographs of Helen Levitt, Dorothea Lange, and Walker Evans, among others. In comparing Welty’s work to Levitt’s photographs of New York, critic John Szarkowski wrote, “Like those of Levitt, Welty’s photographs do not show us the only truths of her subjects’ lives; perhaps they show us only the rarest and most evanescent truths, in which case we are the more grateful for these proofs of their existence.”

  • The Raleigh Children’s Orchestra
    Sertoma Arts Center

    7:00 PM on Thursday, July 27, 2017

    Raleigh, NC 27612
    Cost: free to public with reception following
    Contact: Ilse Mann (conductor) 919-781-3812
    Sertoma Arts Center 919-996-2329
    The Raleigh Children’s Orchestra is a multilevel string orchestra for students in grades two through seven. It is open to all string players who have played their instruments for six months or more. Many members have played their instruments for a number of years and provide leadership for those with less experience. Through weekly rehearsals students gain fluency in playing, ensemble experience, and confidence in performing. Emphasis is on listening skills and understanding rhythm. Parts with string names and finger numbers are available for those students who are still developing their music reading skills. RCO is intended to be a supplement to the instruction the members get in their school orchestras, their Suzuki lessons, or their private lessons. Students may join in September for the first semester, in January for the second semester, or in June for the summer session. There are no auditions.


  • American Dance Festival
    FOOTPRINTS

    Reynolds Industries Theater
    Tuesday, July 25, 8:00pm
    Wednesday, July 26, 8:00pm
    Website and Tickets Please Click Here!
    Footprints delivers an outstanding presentation of three ADF-commissioned world premieres and two reconstructions by groundbreaking artists, performed with impeccable technique and infectious energy by ADF students. Two of Scripps/ADF award winner Lucinda Childs’ minimalist works, 2013’s Kilar and 1993’s Concerto, will be performed. After making his ADF debut in 2015 with his co-created Awkward Magic, Gregory Dolbashian returns. Dolbashian’s choreography has been described as “fluidly inventive” by the The New York Times. Canada’s Shay Kuebler’s work crosses the boundaries of martial arts, theater, and dance and strives to discover new, compelling, and challenging forms of physical art. Gesel Mason’s pieces seek to create meaningful, relevant, and compelling art events as a way to encourage compassion and inquiry.
