The Great Gatsby

07:30 pm to 09:45 pm on Jul 6
Ivy Tech Waldron Auditorium
https://cardinalstage.org/

Cardinal Stage presents “The Great Gatsby’ September 5-22 at the Ivy Tech Waldron Auditorium. The breathtaking glamour and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to the stage in Simon Levy’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel. Nick Carraway finds himself drawn into the dazzling world of flappers, bootleggers, and a mysterious man named Jay Gatsby. But beneath all the romance is a harsh reality that cannot be escaped, no matter how hard Gatsby may struggle to row against the current of his past. This production is in partnership with the IU College of Arts & Sciences 2019 Themester.

I LOVE THE WAY THEY LOOK AT ME:
making images of our selves

Group Exhibition featuring:
Elliot Clausen
Brick Daniel Kyle
Bun Stout
Michaela Sophia Vujovic

RECEPTION at the I FELL COMMUNITY GALLERY
9/6/19 – 6:00 – 9:00 PM
ON DISPLAY through 9/27
Because when they look at me, how the rest of the world looks at me can dissolve. I forget about the man accosting me on the street, telling me that a woman should never walk by a man with her head down. He follows me for a block and around the corner. When I lose patience and yell back, I know I am not safe in this world. When the confused man on the corner, high on something or other, realizes I am not quite a boy…

NOISE is proud to present a show about queer care, friendship, intimacy, and community represented by portraiture. Included artists create images that emerge from the communities in which they are immersed, sharing the intimacy of their social relations in images that celebrate those associations without losing sight of contradiction, ambiguity, and internal turmoil. Potential artists include Elliot Clausen, Brick Kyle, Bun Stout, and Mange. Themes include the complexity and contradiction within beauty, perception, and subversion of the traditional gaze. These highly aestheticized suites of images represent care, and a deep technical proficiency or mastery of craft, as well as a longstanding interest in the history of images in western culture.

A quick reminder, copies of NOISE 1: Things That Aren’t, NOISE 2: Output Sabotage, Videogame Ads in Comics Volume 1: 1982-1985, One-Two Punch, and Pulse and Pulsar are available for purchase at Friends of Art Bookstore and online at http://noise.center/shop

The vitality of Elvis Presley, the brilliance of Chuck Berry, the genius of Ray Charles, the depth of Johnny Cash, the electricity of Little Richard, the raw power of Jerry Lee Lewis and the greatness of Buddy Holly are all magnificently represented in the powerhouse cast of Birth of Rock.
