Michael Kenna – Venezia: Columbia Museum of Art

Friday July 15, 2011 – October 23, 2011

This beautiful collection of haunting images was quietly made by Michael Kenna over the last 30 years. Arguably the most influential photographer of his generation, Michael Kenna comes to the Columbia Museum of Art to open this exhibit on Friday, July 15, 2011 at 7pm (doors open at 6). Meet the artist , hear him discuss his technical and aesthetic approach to the photographic medium, followed by a book signing. The exhibit opens to the public on Saturday, July 16, 2011. The exhibit features his pictures of the city of Venice. “This crumbling jewel of Northern Italy, built completely on marshland, is steeped in history and irresistibly imbued with romance. Known as “The City of Light” and “Queen of the Adriatic,” Venezia is indelibly tinged with dark intrigue, decadence and decay”. (Michael Kenna’s website) More info at the Museum of Art’s website.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: Town Theatre

Now – July 23, 2011

Take an incredible ride with one of the most wonderful families of all time! A widowed, absent-minded, unsuccessful inventor saves a “has been” racing car from the scrap heap at the request of his darling children. He fixes the car up – and boy does he ever – as not only does it run again, it floats and flies! It certainly impresses a beautiful lady who becomes smitten with the entire Potts family. Who would not want such a fantastic car? The Baron and Baroness of Vulgaria certainly do! The royals hire two bumbling spies to kidnap the inventor, but instead they grab Grandpa Potts. The mission becomes to save Grandpa, but in doing so, they must avoid being taken by the Childcatcher whose job is to “make Vulgaria a more beautiful place to live” by making sure no children roam the streets freely! The whole family will love this fantasmagorical Broadway musical! Visit the Town Theatre website for more information!

Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, SMOKEY JOE’S CAFE isn’t just great pop music – it’s compelling musical theatre. Shows: Thursdays through Sundays only. Visit Trustus website.
