This exhibit is a dialog beginning with a poet’s voice and then calling forth an artist’s remix, and response. You are invited to this collaborative exhibition in hopes you, too, will discover something hidden, and now made communal in the open light. A Hiding Place can be a rest stop or a generator shop, a place to recover and perhaps uncover. Poets and artists all have one, if not physically, then metaphorically. Perhaps everyone if asked could make a rendering or tell of such a place. Poetry reading @ 6:30pm

You already know and love the songs, but In My Life: A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles gives you a chance to get a fresh perspective on the story of the band that made them. More than just a live musical tribute show, In My Life tells the Fab Four's tale through the eyes of their late manager, Brian Epstein, who acts as narrator to renowned tribute band Abbey Road's live performance of some 33 Beatles classics. From their groundbreaking appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show to their final rooftop performance at the Apple Corp. offices, and "I Want to Hold Your Hand" to the psychedelic era of Sgt. Pepper's and beyond, this exciting production gives new life to the story of rock's greatest band.
