"Nancy Crow: Works from 1988-2008" Exhibition
Calendar: Local Calendar

06 Jul 2008
The Regina Gouger Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University presents “Nancy Crow: Works from 1988­-2008,” featuring more than 50 quilts that make it the largest exhibition ever of Crow’s work. On June 11, Crow will lecture and sign copies of her books at 7 p.m. in McConomy Auditorium in the University Center. Former Miller Gallery Director Petra Fallaux curates the summer exhibition, which opens with a reception June 12 from 5 to 8 p.m. and runs through August 15.
The Regina Gouger Miller Gallery is open Tuesday-Sunday, 11:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Admission is free.

Rather than assembling a “greatest hits” compilation or a chronological survey of Crow’s career, “Nancy Crow: Works from 1988-­2008” presents the works with an eye toward uncovering the artist’s process of discovery in these pivotal years. The exhibition includes examples of her quilts “Bow Tie,” “Chinese Souls” and “Linear Studies” series, as well as more than 30 works from the “Color Blocks” and “Constructions” series, including a half-dozen new quilts that will be unveiled at the exhibition.

Disney's Beauty and the Beast

Disney's Beauty and the Beast
Musical | Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice
July 1 - July 20

The classic love story of Belle, a kind-hearted but misunderstood young woman, and the Beast, a pompous prince who has been turned into an animal by the spell of an enchantress. The only chance the Beast has of breaking the spell is to learn both how to love and how to be loved, lessons for which he turns to Belle for help.. Based on a well-known French fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast was released as a film by Walt Disney Pictures in 1991, where its state-of-the-art animation and profoundly relevant story line made it popular with children and adults alike. The elements that make Beauty and the Beast so magical onscreen translate beautifully to the stage, where its grandeur and scale promises to thrill Playhouse theater-goers.

The TypewriterGirls Present: God vs. Poet
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
06 Jul 2008
July 6th @ Modern Formations(4919 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh 15224) Doors Open at 4:30 Show Starts at 5:15 Suggested Donation $3.00
The TypewriterGirls present yet another exquisitely deranged plethora of intelligent (and yes, sometimes frightening) elegantly pornographic poetry, comedy, artwork, music, and dance. . . and this time God demands his say in the matter.
Join the TypewriterGirl ’s battalions, wrangled by Margaret, Crystal, and Jason (all three experienced in the taming of wild monkeys—the only true resume builder in this case,) as they give God himself a smack in the face and a knee in the groin.

Those aiding in the buffeting of our Lord on this Sunday afternoon are battle commanders Jason Kirin and the Kirinettes, who will be craftily entangling the arts of music and poetry in a performance sure to create a net capable of trapping any sly sniper arch-angels;
Mizz J, whose sweet, smooth, and seductive moves, melodies, and metaphors are capable of calming more holy wrath than even the TypewriterGirls can provoke,


Michelle Stoner; a poet with an arsenal of allegorical battle gear and strategic maneuverings so large that they can’t be contained to just one show;
Mary Biddinger, a secret weapon so classy and powerful. . .that one wonders how she got mixed up in all of this;
Dan Shapiro, a man wrapped in such mystery and stealth that neither Typewritergirl nor God can capture him;
Paul Dvorchak, in true Crossroads style will be doing his battling with guitar in hand;
David Doyle, neither man nor God, will be performing feats of such supernatural talent that the lord himself will be left green with envy;
and our first guest visual artist Rob David, who will provide the most-appropriate and/or inappropriate aesthetic background as this (hopefully bloodless, yet ferocious) fighting takes place.
The battlefields will resound with the glorious sound of trumpets and synthesizers come fighting’s end, as several Jesuses disguised as members of the Hood Gang stir up our victorious legions to dance and feast in sinfully delightful decadence till evenings end.
Join us for this unprecedented Cabaret sure to cause some kind of natural disaster come Monday morning.

July 6th @ Modern Formations
