Michael Proulx "Urban Spaces of Minneapolis"

November 6-December 1, 2017
Opening Reception on Monday, November 6th, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Joseph Gazzuolo Fine Arts Gallery, FAC 135

The city provides an abundant source of visual elements and a structure for the kind of paintings I want to make. I am excited by the visual complexity, rhythm and repetition of shape in the city. Sky is reflected and transmitted through glass walls and windows. Skyways create multiple horizons. Sunlight filters down through the guts of the city as in the forest. These are the forms that inspire my paintings.

The Panza Monologues by Virginia Grise, Irma Mayorga & NHCC Ensemble

December 1-9, 2017
Black Box Production, Campus Center Black Box Theatre, CC 242
Directed by Kathy Hendrickson

Conceived of and written by Virginia Grise, Irma Mayorga & the NHCC Ensemble. The Panza Monologues is an original performance piece based on women's stories about their panzas. Tu sabes - that roll of belly we all try to hide! A women's tour de force as told through the words of women speaking with heart stopping frankness, these stories create a journey of poignancy, humor, and revelation. The Panza Monologues boldly places the panza front and center as a symbol that reveals the lurking truths about women's thoughts, lives, loves, abuses, and lived conditions. Power to the Panza! 

Note: This production contains mature themes and strong language. It may not be suitable for children.
