There’s a historic dissonance between starving artists and the bourgeoisie who can afford to purchase their work. Norman Coates, Winston-Salem Light Project (WSLP) Executive Director and professor at UNCSA, helps erase the fissure with his multimedia public art project Terra Luna that open to the entire viewing public at First Baptist Church on Fifth Street. It will remain on display nightly from 8:30pm to 11:00pm until this Saturday April 25th.
For many years, University of North Carolina School of the Arts Social Studies teacher, Jonathan Milner, has led students to remote parts of the world. They have traveled to places like Nairobi, Kenya where he and his students fed AIDS orphaned infants and children.
Milner’s most recent trip was a result of his previous work with Partners in Health, a medical advocacy group out of Boston. Last December Jonathan Milner, his wife Cary Clifford, and their nine year old son, Owen, traveled to Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Today's guest has been praised for his "assertive style and strong musical personality," and playing that is "supremely convincing in its vitality". Kevin Lawrence is the chair of the string department and professor of violin at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.
