What is the impact of merging two art forms? Does it deepen the meaning of one or the other – or both – for the viewer?

A great group of alumni, parents, students, friends and staff - including our own Dean Valerie Morris - joined the Washington CofC Alumni Club at the Kennedy Center on June 15, for a performance of the play, Byhalia, Mississippi. The heartfelt comedy was written by theatre alumnus Evan Linder '04, who graciously met with the group and posed for a photo after the performance.
The play, winner of Chicago's prestigious Joseph Jefferson Award for Best New Work in 2016, was fantastic! Shows continue through July 7, so make sure to check it out if you are in the Washington, D.C., area.

Installation artist Jennifer Wen Ma takes over the Halsey | Charleston Magazine

Charleston Magazine featured Jennifer Wen Ma's "Cry Joy Pak—Gardens of Dark and Light" exhibition that opens this week at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art.
.
"If there’s one thing to emphasize about this installation, it is inclusion. A series of on-site feasts will feature key members of the community. Ma has worked closely with local activist Jessica Boylston, the leader of Ideas Into Action, to plan the dinner series and shape the guest list. Themes will address topics such as food security, land politics, and education. 'I hope we can get conversations going,' says Ma. 'I’m hoping this will help Charlestonians come together and discuss important and complex issues, and perhaps see their own city in a new light.”'
.
Join us to celebrate this conversation catalyst exhibition at the Opening Reception for Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light!
