Upcoming Events
Not Again? at the Masur Museum
07/2/2014 to 10/11/2014
In a way Not Again?! is a homecoming for Greely Myatt. His second solo exhibition took place at the Masur in 1979. Since then he and the Masur have grown a great deal. Not Again?! is also a fitting metaphor for thinking about Myatt’s studio practice. He is interested in the cyclical nature of life and symbols. Myatt often gives found objects and well worn cultural cues new life while making art. His subject matter varies drastically from a painstakingly realistic depiction of an ice cream cone dropped mid-lick to an esoteric examination of how the Underground Railroad used quilt patterns to communicate in code. As a result viewing this exhibition is like life itself and runs the gamut from humor to tragedy; sometimes simultaneously (if you like ice cream). Specific subject matter aside, Myatt is most interested in communication as the theme within his work. He constructs art much like an author writes a sentence. In a sense, his materials provide a vocabulary and the means of fabrication becomes the punctuation that holds his work together; giving it a particular emphasis or sensibility. His titles often convey specific ideas about a work of art’s intended meaning, but as with most things it is up for debate. When different elements of a particular work of art are examined, things can change.

Brown Bag Concert
09/3/2014
Both natives of Monroe, James Earl Simpson and Vince Chao teamed up 5 years ago. Vince’s affinity for alternative country and classic rock and James Earl’s straight-forward approach to roots country music creates a modern feel for songs from a timeless era.

Downtown Pigskin Pub Crawl
09/4/2014
Monroe Renaissance is kicking off the festive football season with their bi-monthly Downtown Pub Crawl. Participants check in at Bry Park, located at the corner of South Grand and Desiard Street. They will receive their pub passport, which will have a map and list of the participating locations, along with drink specials at each location. After making each stop and getting their passport stamped, pub-crawlers will drop off their completed passport at the last stop – Shananigan’s – for their chance to score a touchdown in the form of prizes donated by Marsala Beverage. Participants must be at least 21 years of age.
