Al Wildey: Life is a Journey
October 9-31  | University Art Gallery
Photography Professor Al Wildey’s work will be featured in this retrospective exhibition. His work is about the accumulation of visual information from moving through time and space.

VENICE: An Art installation by Brian Elder
October 9-31  | University Art Gallery
Brian Elder is a professor of Painting and Drawing in the Department of Art & Design. This installation is the result of work he did during his sabbatical in Italy in the Spring of 2019. Elder works in painting and mixed media. He is interested in exploring how our awareness of being in and moving through a geographic location has metaphorical ties to life experience. His work involves collage from many sources, in varied media and scale, that are pieced together and developed in order to show our contemporary understanding of a place and how we make sense of that journey.

October 8-10 at 7:30 p.m. and October 11 at 2:00 p.m. 
Written by Anna Deavere Smith and directed by Steve Berglund 
Acclaimed as “an American masterpiece” (Newsweek), TWILIGHT: LOS ANGELES, 1992 is a stunning work of “documentary theatre” in which Anna Deavere Smith uses the verbatim words of people who experienced the Los Angeles riots to expose and explore the devastating human impact of that event. “Extraordinary…haunting.” —People Magazine. (Includes mature language)

October 22-24 at 7:30 p.m. and October 25 at 2:00 p.m. 
Written by Pearl Cleage and directed by CMU Student Yasmeen Duncan (Faculty Advisor, Elaine DiFalco Daugherty) 
“Pearl Cleage’s A SONG FOR CORETTA, a lovely, image-soaked testament to the civil rights icon seen through the random eyes of a handful of fictional mourners who have lined up to say goodbye to the beloved Mrs. (Coretta Scott) King…brims with wit, personality and life-affirming energy.” —Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
