The BIGGER Picture
Exhibition dates: Jan. 14-April 26Gallery reception: 4-6 p.m., Jan. 29; 1000 Building
Celebrate the people who run it all — SCC’s very own staff — through this unique art show. In this exhibit, you’ll be able to get a true taste of the individual personalities that make up the backbone of our college. Join the reception for a glimpse at how our faculty expresses their creativity not only through what is seen, but also with what is heard on the stage and written on the page.
“The Right to Dream” by Living Voices
Hour-long shows start at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., Jan. 22; Black Box Theater
The ‘50s and ‘60s saw the battle for civil rights at its height. On Jan. 22, you’re invited to witness this powerful period come to life as live actors and archival footage unite for three theatrical performances. “The Right to Dream” chronicles an African-American student’s experiences in Mississippi, in an effort to remind us that prejudice has definitely played a hand in sculpting the history we know today.
Auditions: “The Drowsy Chaperone”
Auditions: 6-9 p.m., Jan. 24-Jan. 25; Campus TheaterCallbacks: 6-9 p.m., Jan. 26; Campus Theater
SCC is reliving the roaring ‘20s this Winter with a production of “The Drowsy Chaperone.” Do you have that one album you know inside out? So does the Man in the Chair: the unnamed number one fan of the fictional 1928 stage hit “The Drowsy Chaperone.” When he puts it on the record player in his living room, its scenes unfold in front of him as he addresses the audience with personal asides. Brush up on the Charleston and come audition for this whimsical musical parody!
The Horrible Art Gala
Jan. 25, 6-9 p.m.; Lake City Community Center
You don’t have to be an art aficionado to enjoy this second annual event. In fact, it will poke fun at just that. This ironic showcase will feature unique creations which might never have seen the light of day in traditional galleries. All donations benefit education scholarships and Crab Claw Creative Media Funds. People are encouraged to bring their own works, too — be they exquisite or “horrible” — in an evening dedicated to answering the age-old question: What’s the difference?
How to be Maladjusted: Creating a Commitment to Social Justice
11:30 a.m.-12:20 p.m., Jan. 23; Room 1508
Drop by this workshop for a chance to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. in an artistic way. At this event, MLK speeches “The Other America” and “Proud to be Maladjusted” will be presented to attendees who will then have the opportunity to discuss and present what social justice means to them by way of creating a poem, statement, drawing or other work.
