"candy dreams of SPACEMEN" by Corey LeChat
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
09 Aug 2008


Corey LeChat's head is not just in the clouds, it’s in the stratosphere, mesosphere, through the thermosphere and exosphere and toward galaxies and dimensions far beyond.
With his lens trained on rocket ships and astronauts, Corey's latest photographic series launches the viewer on a journey through space and time.
The casual view captures unbelievable things, like attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion or even C-beams glittering in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
Thankfully these moments are not lost in time, but preserved for the entire cosmos to see (and then perhaps to also dream of spacemen).
Corey LeChat's latest series of 35 mm color photographs materializes at
Moxie Dada, August 9 through 30.
1416 ARCH STREET / PITTSBURGH PA 15212 / PLANET EARTH
The opening reception, to be held Saturday, August 9 from 6-9 pm, features music from out of this world including an original theramin score composed and performed by the artist.
Space snacks and Tang will be provided for attendees.

LEMURtron is a modern musical extravaganza like you've never seen or heard before! Combining common and unusual musical instruments with robotic technology, the exhibit features a futuristic 'band' of music makers with members that include GuitarBot, ModBots and the infamous Ill-Tempered Clangier. YOU "play" the "Bots" by moving and dancing on the lighted dance floor, making your own concert of techno music.
LEMURtron is created by LEMUR (League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots), a Brooklyn, NY-based group of artists and technologists creating exotic, sculptural musical instruments which integrate robotic technology. LEMUR was founded by Eric Singer in 2000.

Artists are invited to make an application for a grant to work with the YouthPlaces organization in City of Pittsburgh neighborhoods with underserved youth ages 12 through 18. Ten grants of $5,000 will be awarded to ten artists. Artists are defined as visual artists, dancers, choreographers, actors, musicians, designers, and fashion designers. Programming will take place during non-school and weekend hours within cultural or community organizations. Qualifications include the following: must be interested in CALL FOR ARTISTS working with teenagers in a community-based setting and be comfortable in culturally distinct environments; must be able to develop and implement in-depth arts experiences/programming working with the staff of YouthPlaces; must obtain ACT 33/34 clearances; must be willing to build a strong holistic approach to working with young people including building relationships within their communities.

Further, the application should include a statement of no more than 500 words explaining why this grant is important to you, and how you feel this program would influence both your own art practice as well as stimulate and stretch the minds and talents of young people.
