Ashley Erling brings us “Eye on RI” featuring upcoming local events!
A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (Abridged)- FirstWorks and the Brown Arts Initiative at Brown University will co-present MacArthur Fellow and Tony-nominated performer and playwright Taylor Mac in an artist residency taking place September 12-15, 2019. The residency features the Rhode Island premiere of Mac’s critically acclaimed performance A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (Abridged) on September 14 at The VETS. A finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this bedazzled mashup of music, history and theater decodes the social history of the United States—all 240 years—through 246 songs that were popular throughout the country and in its disparate communities, from 1776 to the present day. The 2-hour abridged performance features selections spanning the 24-hour work. The performance is part of FirstWorks’ Artistic Icons Series with ticket information at first-works.org.
7th Annual Art & Poetry-The Wickford Art Association is presenting a unique blending of two art forms at its 7th Annual Poetry and Art. The opening reception is on Friday, September 13, 2019 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at 36 Beach Street, North Kingstown, RI. The exhibit runs through October 6th, and is free and open to the public. This year’s theme is “Harmony”. Artwork and poems will be hung side by side in the gallery and every poem will be read in a beautiful outdoor setting under a tent on Narragansett Bay.
