Calendar: Local Calendar
13 Jun 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.

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.

Wired to Win
Calendar: Local Calendar
13 Jun 2008
Wired to Win, an extraordinary new film in IMAX®, showcases the amazing ability of the human brain to overcome adversity, accomplish the near-impossible, and power each of us to victory and success in life.

The brain’s abilities are illustrated through cyclists racing in the Tour De France. Over the course of the event, they are caught up in hair-raising crashes, dramatic battles over the Alps and Pyrenees and action-packed descents down steep mountain roads. Their ultimate goal? The finish line on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

The film raises the questions "how do they do this?" and "why do they do this?" Ultimately the answers lie within the mind and the human brain itself.

$8 adults; $6 children 3-12 and seniors 62+

$7/$5 for members
