Exhibit: Katherine Hart

58491.jpg

Katherine Hart has always been a scavenger, drawn to finding bits and pieces, cast off or lost items, pieces of paper with partial information, rusted metal and hardware. They have an unknown history, a previous life, and she is intrigued with the idea of removing them from their original intent and giving them a new function.

In this new encaustic work, a process by which color pigments are mixed with hot beeswax, Katherine is deliberately juxtaposing and layering images that, upon first glance do not relate to each other. She sees these images as a starting place, an invitation to fill in the missing pieces, an opening line to a story that will be different for each viewer. She is hopeful that each person seeing this work, will bring his or her own interpretations to it.

FREE Exhibit: May 4 - June 23

Public Reception: Thursday, May 10, 7-9 PM

Monsieur Periné

One of the leading bands in Colombia’s new music scene, Monsieur Periné won the Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist and earned a Grammy Award nomination for their most recent album, Caja de Música. Rooted in gypsy jazz and celebrating the tradition of Django Reinhardt, Monsieur Periné’s fresh style adds a variety of Latin elements to the mix. Incorporating genres like cumbia, son, bolero, tango, and samba, the band performs on traditional South American instruments from the charango, to the bandoneon, and Latin percussion. Their airy yet virtuosic instrumental foundation connects 1930s Paris with the youthful spirit of modern Bogotá. It’s the perfect backdrop to showcase Catalina Garcia‘s sugar-sweet, sunshiny vocals at the very center of their signature “swing a la Colombiana” style. With the help of the illustrator José Arboleda and their own fashion designer, the band has created a world of their own that comes to life in their music, their artwork, and, of course, their performances. Monsieur Periné’s early 2018 album release will surely put their unique creativity on display. (thehowardtheatre.com)

We will have a day filled with over 13 different speakers from around the world discussing ideas worth sharing.  We will have someone talking about the following: Autonomous cars and how they will reduce revenues to jurisdictions because there won’t be a need for parking garages, red light and speeding cameras so what do we need to start doing now to replace that revenue? African prison project and how if you treat inmates with respect while they are in prison, when they return to society, the will be more likely to be productive. Artificial Intelligence and how currently, the darker skinned you are, the more of a random guess it is on facial recognition.  Customer service jobs and cashiers, will be a thing of the past, because robots will take those industries over.  What are we doing to prepare our residents to enter a new workforce? Smart parks and what that means along with parks of the future. ($)
