30 Americans Art Exhibit is Presented by the Arlington Museum of Art

The Arlington Museum of Art is proud to announce it’s exhibition for the summerof 2021, 30 Americans. This will be the second exhibition that the AMA has received from the renowned Rubell Museum (the first being Keith Haring: Against All Odds, one of the most successful exhibits in AMA’s history). 30 Americans showcases works by 30 emerging and established African American artists of the last three decades.

“The second collaboration with the Rubell Museum in Miami, solidifies our relationship and allowsus to bring important art to the North Texas region. The exhibit will push the limits of our space and returning visitors will be surprised by the scale and scope of the exhibit while introducing them to new galleries. Including a variety of styles and a broad array of visual art, there's something for everyone in this exhibit. We decided to bring this exhibit to Arlington to provide more individual access to art that will inspire and engage ever growing audiences” says AMA Board President Dr. Christopher Hightower.

This acclaimed exhibition focuses on issues of race, sexuality, gender and historical identity in contemporary culture while exploring the powerful influence of artistic legacy and community across generations. Curated by the Rubell Museum, the exhibit includes works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, and Kehinde Wiley. The exhibition features works from a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, video, and installation. While some works probe the notion of racial and social difference in a candid manner, others evoke universal concepts and emotions using a sophisticated blend of visual beauty, humor, and irony.

“This is an important exhibit that will undoubtedly spark conversation about race in America. It comes at a time when race and social justice issues are at the top of people's minds on a day to day basis. We are proud to present this profound exhibit that highlights the most important African-American artists since 1990” says 30 Americans Committee Chair and CEO for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Tonya Veasey.

Mera Rubell, of the Rubell Museum, states that “30 Americans is a celebration of the artists we collected over a 30 year period and their work never stops addressing the common humanity in all of us. The Keith Haring exhibition was the first of our collaborations with the Arlington Museum of Art and now we are excited to continue with 30 Americans." Likewise, the AMA is thrilled to continue their relationship with the Rubell and bring this remarkable exhibit to DFW.

An Evening in Italy Provided by Timeless Concerts in Downtown Arlington on April 24

Evening in Italy is coming up April 24 at 8 pm at the Arlington Museum of Art with music by Italian composers that span centuries, from the early music of Rossini and Paganini, to Italian-American Henry Mancini. Italians love their opera so Timeless Concerts' tenors Don O'Neal LeBlanc and Sergio Cepeda will sing opera's greatest hits from Puccini to Verdi. Find out which opera aria has been performed in 18 different movies! Also, learn how a famous piano concerto by Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninov was based on a theme by Paganini. Timeless Concerts' instrumentalists are pianists Heejung Kang and Erik Barnes, violinist/violist Tim Angel, cellist Oliver Schlaffer and violinist LeeAnne Chenoweth.

Timeless Concerts' performers hope with all the losses our audience has endured this past year, that they can provide an event that everyone can look forward to enjoying. Tickets for Evening in Italy are now live on their website. Beautiful music and time spent together, is more important than ever and healing. Although Timeless Concerts is very sad that they didn't perform our annual "Valentines Special and Fundraiser," they say they are blessed, because their nonprofit organization is surviving, and will perform a great concert on April 24!

Timeless Concerts is pretty certain that covid restrictions will be required in late April when they perform with things expected to be the same as when they performed two socially distanced concerts in July and September of 2020, such as temperatures possibly be taken at the entrance, masks required when not at your table, only an audience of 70, and covered dessert plates on the individual tables instead of the traditional buffet. Hopefully, their July 10 concert can be maskless and back to normal.

You can read more about Timeless Concerts on their home page where they have a promo video.

University of Texas at Arlington’s Department of Theatre Arts presents SPRING AWAKENING via Video on Demand

The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company presents SPRING AWAKENING. This Tony Award nominated rock musical is based on the 1819 German play, Spring Awakening, written by Frank Wedekind.

SPRING AWAKENING critiques the hypocrisy of institutional doctrine (especially in relation to sex education, religious concepts of sin, and a culture of shame) as a means to control young adults and promote abstinence. Particularly in a time of civil unrest, SPRING AWAKENING calls into question what is promoted to children as “normal” and what is “unnatural.” Though dealing with difficult themes like suicide and sexual abuse, the message of the musical is to rage against the status quo in order to protect individual expression and thought. The younger generations must hold their elders accountable and push back in order to create a world with more compassion and understanding of the individual.

SPRING AWAKENING will be streamed via Video On Demand from April 2-5 9-12 (new dates), 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic. To purchase the Video On Demand rental, please visit our Virtual Box Office.
