VISUAL ARTS EXHIBIT: YANCY VILLA CALVO–VEILED COMPLEXITY: THE TEXTURED LIVES OF WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD

Start Date: April 6, 2020

End Date: May 4, 2020

Location: GPAC

LEARN MORE

Her multimedia work seeks to create awareness, provoke thought, and engage in conversation on issues of social justice, equality, and prosperity. She does this from many different angles:

Villa-Calvo created the initiative Go Engage Memphis Soul (GEMS) while working as a city artist with the Memphis 3.0 Comprehensive Growth City Plan. Through GEMS, Yancy applied art as an engagement tool with city residents as part of their neighborhood planning and development process.

Her latest visual work is Barrier Free, a traveling, interactive art installation that asks viewers to reflect on the “human-made and systemic barriers that divide us, from unjust immigration laws to mass incarceration. The installation has been exhibited around the U.S. in Washington, D.C, Houston, TX, Phoenix, AZ, Baltimore, MD, and in various cities in Tennessee including Memphis, Murfreesboro, and Nashville.

Her work is an intertwining web of art and life. Her life experiences have influenced how she defines, makes, and experiences art. Experiences such as being born and raised in Mexico, living in Mozambique, and traveling to many countries have provided her with a cross-cultural perspective and an awareness of her place as a global citizen. A Mexican-American, Yancy now calls the U.S., her own.

A Bronx Tale

Start Date: April 7, 2020

End Date: April 12, 2020

Location: Orpheum Theatre

LEARN MORE

Three years ago, Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri teamed up with Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro, Tony® Award winner Jerry Zaks and Tony® Award winner Sergio Trujillo to create this streetwise musical — based on Palminteri’s true life story.

A Bronx Tale, Broadway’s hit crowd-pleaser, takes you to the stoops of the Bronx in the 1960s, where a young man is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he’d love to be.

Bursting with high-energy dance numbers and original doo-wop tunes from Academy Award® and Tony® Award-winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast) and Tony® Award-nominee Glenn Slater (Love Never Dies), A Bronx Tale is an unforgettable story of loyalty and family.

The New York Times hails A Bronx Tale as “A Critics’ Pick! The kind of tale that makes you laugh and cry.”

Otis Redding III

Start Date: April 11, 2020

End Date: April 11, 2020

Location: Halloran Centre for Performing Arts & Education

LEARN MORE

A rich family legacy. An enduring name that has been embedded in the hearts of millions around the globe. A history of solid performances for fans in both the United States and in Europe. Not many performers today have such advantages like Otis Redding III.

Legendary soul singer Otis Redding left his son with a musical heritage that extends far beyond the hit records for which he is famous.

Indeed, Otis Redding III has been bestowed with his father’s unique musical gift, and for nearly 25 years has put this talent to good use by not only touring and performing but also writing and arranging since the early ’80s.

An accomplished and recognized artist in his own right, Otis Redding III grew even more as a musician and performer touring with his band The Reddings. He did not realize until much later in his career that it is truly his father’s talent that pulses in his veins.

“The music has to have feeling and emotion…” says Otis. “While I’m playing guitar or singing, I don’t proclaim to be a vocalist like my father.”

Otis’ reach extends beyond his music and his performances as well. Actively involved in his family’s philanthropic organization, The Otis Redding Foundation, he participates in the annual Otis Redding Singer/Songwriter Camp.

Continuing in his family’s tradition of compassion and community contribution, Otis remains dedicated to mentoring both youth and musical hopefuls. Today, Otis Redding III still performs at special events across the United States and Europe, keeping his family’s musical heritage alive.

Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers

Start Date: April 11, 2020

End Date: April 11, 2020

Location: GPAC

LEARN MORE

Bruce Hornsby, the creatively insatiable pianist and singer-songwriter from Williamsburg, Virginia, always has succeeded on his exceptional gifts, his training, and his work ethic. He became a global name in music by reimagining American roots forms as songs that moved with the atmospheric grace of jazz. “The Way It Is” defined sonic joy on the radio, however as a hit record it also evidenced a thrilling re-structuring, and during the years afterward Hornsby, in staggeringly diverse ways, has kept going.

He has returned to traditional American roots forms, collaborating with Ricky Skaggs. He has played with the Grateful Dead. He has fused the plunk and dazzle of twentieth-century modernist classical composition to singer-songwriter emotional inquiries. He has scored films. He has performed with symphony orchestras. If the sound of an arrogant air-conditioner or a stretch of rude playing caught his ear, he has entered the hallowed doors of the conservatories of punk. So when Hornsby describes Absolute Zero, his new album, as “a compendium of what I like and moves me,” don’t expect perhaps a thing or two new. Prepare for a multi- faceted ride.
