“An Homage to Josef Albers & the Square” – An intimate Showcase with unique Works and Editions
“An Homage to Josef Albers & the Square” – An intimate Showcase with unique Works and Editions

Get more info about this event »

Description: Josef Albers profoundly influenced the Abstract Expressionism movement, as well as the tendency within Color Field Painting and Minimalism during the twentieth century. He not only was an artist, but also for decades published extensive theoretical work proposing that color, rather than form, is the primary medium of pictorial language. The exhibition focuses on his series Homage to the Square and related works, which he started producing in 1949 until his death in 1976. Albers used a single geometric shape to systematically explore the vast range of visual effects that could be achieved through color and spatial relationships alone.

Description: The Story: "Noah’s Flood" tells the biblical story of Noah and his ark, from hearing the voice of God foretelling of the impending disaster to his family coming together to do God’s work. A truly family oriented opera, this new production by the Wichita Grand Opera will have something for everyone. The Production: "Noah’s Flood" is widely regarded to be Benjamin Britten’s most lovable work. At its premiere in 1958, critics called the opera “a miracle of inspiration” and “extraordinarily beautiful.” Britten called for a core of professional singers and musicians to lead a large cast of student, community, and youth singers, actors, and musicians. Delightful and innovative touches abound, including striking mugs with wooden spoons to represent the sound of raindrops, and a colorful pageant of children in costume as the animals, parading two-by-two onto the ark.

Description: Kansas City’s Golden Glove Charity and Title Boxing Club (West Wichita) are hosting Wichita’s first ever Boxathon and we are looking for businesses and individuals to participate. Our objective is to keep the house full all night and work towards knocking out pediatric cancer. We have 43 team captain spots to fill. Each captain will have the responsibility of recruiting a team of at least 12 people and scheduling them to box for one of the hours. Participants can box for a full hour or split an hour with a teammate, as long as the bag is staying busy the whole time. Captains are asked to raise a minimum of $540 for their teams bag in an effort to reach our goal of $20,000! Each hour consists of 3 minute boxing rounds with 1 minute rests in between, for a total of 15 rounds per hour and 180 rounds Total! If you are interested but not familiar with Title Boxing Club (West Wichita), give us a call for additional information on the event. Captains must sign up by going to goldglovekc.org and selecting the “Team captain” item in the GGC Store. After you sign up you will have a spot to receive donations for your team. Remember, the team captain is responsible for scheduling their team to cover 12 hours on the bag with no gaps. If you had 12 people on your team each would have to box 15 rounds straight so we suggest splitting hours for people that have never done this before. We are expecting high profile guests and companies to participate! There will be news and media coverage for this event. Most importantly, we have the potential to raise more than $20,000 if we sell all the bags and keep the punching all night. Please consider starting or joining a team and helping us KNOCK OUT pediatric cancer. ***This is a fun family friendly event, NO boxing experience necessary! If you cannot participate please take a second to go to GoldGlovekc.org and donate $1 in the GGC Store. If you would like to donate more simply change the quantity of your “order”.

Description: Distinctive and soulful, Michael McDonald’s voice is one of the most yearningly emotive instruments of our times. From ‘70s-era Doobie Brothers classics such as “What A Fool Believes” and solo hits like “I Keep Forgettin’” through two highly-acclaimed Motown albums, genre-busting guest spots and innovative concept shows, the five-time GRAMMY Award-winning McDonald is both timeless and ever-evolving. Boz Scaggs’ remarkable career dates back to the late 1960s, when he sang with the Steve Miller Band. Scaggs brought a characteristically deft touch as a singer to solo triumphs including such classic albums as Silk Degrees (1976) and Middle Man (1980), and late-period high points like Some Change (1994) and Dig (2001). His hits include “Lowdown” and “Lido Shuffle.” Scaggs’ most recent album, A Fool To Care, came out in 2015. Submitted by: Shelby Hennen Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

The secret history of the attack on the USS Liberty: a Survivor Speaks

Get more info about this event »

Description: Citizens for Justice in the Middle East will host an event commemorating the 50th anniversary of an attack during Israel’s Six Day War on the USS Liberty, a US naval intelligence ship sailing in international waters. The ship was strafed by Israeli jets, bombed with napalm and then attacked by Israeli torpedo boats. Thirty-four Americans died. Retired Staff Sergeant Bryce Lockwood, one of 172 survivors of the attack, will speak at the June 22 event. Although Israel claimed the US ship had been mistaken for an Egyptian ship, survivors believed the attack was intentional. Recent investigations have concluded that there is “compelling evidence that Israel’s attack was a deliberate attempt to destroy an American ship and kill her entire crew.” Come hear the only Marine survivor of the attack recall his experience that day, explore questions as to why Israel attacked an unarmed naval intelligence ship, why the US Navy first launched and then recalled fighter bombers sent to defend the USS Liberty, why the US has continually failed to pursue an investigation of the attack and what has been learned in recent years by the declassification of government documents. The event takes place Thursday June 22 at 7 pm at the VFW Post located at 9550 Pflumm Road in Lenexa. Submitted by: Jamie Jackson Ctizens for Justice in the Middle East
