THE MOBILE DELTA: Glass & Light

Mobile

Rene Culler’s site-specific work is a mural in glass that celebrates the species-rich Delta and its atmospheric qualities. The Delta is a changeling environment which is constantly shaped and molded by the weather and waterways. As the grasses, almost transparent, catch the light, Culler’s drawings and painting in glass suggest the landscape that southern Alabama holds so dear. The composition is a wall of natural light utilized as a glass canvas for drawing, painting and printing with vitreous enamels. Slumped dimensional panels and blown glass abstractly portray the location’s dimensionality.

Patterson Hood In Concert – Two Shows!

Huntsville

Fans of the southern rock band the Drive-By Truckers are in for a special treat. Shoals native and critically-acclaimed songwriter Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers will be joining us for two special acoustic performances at Tangled String Studios in RR7 on December 14th, 2017. Tickets are on sale now for 7:00 PM show and 9:00 PM show. Patterson Hood, co-founder and lead singer of the Drive-By Truckers, has led the southern rock ensemble since 1996. Hood over the past several years has been dabbling into the world of solo performances in-between tours with DBT. The Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. Hood has three solo records to his name with his latest solo album in 2012, “Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance”. Of the album, Hood says, “Back in January 2011, worn out from having spent a year on tour and facing a new album’s release, I decided to try to write a book. I had an idea for a story I wanted to write and it started coming very easily. By our third month on the road, I already had a pretty firm outline of what I wanted, and several chapters that I felt really good about. I called it Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance, and decided that spring to record it as a solo album. I could clearly hear in my head exactly how I wanted every song to sound and made a list of who I wanted to play on each one. It is in some ways the most personal album I’ve ever made. There has always been a lot of me in all of the albums we’ve done, but usually semi-disguised as character sketches and stories, but the first person narrative in this one is pretty firmly rooted in autobiography, albeit in two dramatically differing time periods.” **IMPORTANT NOTE** Tickets are non-refundable unless the show is canceled or rescheduled. Patrons are invited to bring your own beverage of choice! Venue capacity is 100+ seats

Mobile

This magnificent celebration lasts over two and a half weeks and concludes on Fat Tuesday, the day before Lent. For weeks, the streets of downtown Mobile are filled with the sights and sounds of live marching bands, brilliantly colored floats and, of course, teeming crowds of parade-goers. The floats are glowing spectacles manned by masked riders festooned in satin and sequins, and armed with crowd-pleasing "throws" such as beads, MoonPies, doubloons and candy. Mardi Gras must be experienced to be fully understood, and Mobile is the perfect place.

From a national call for submissions, our committee will select eight new works to be read at the festival. Audiences vote for their favorite during the weekend, setting the winner on a path to a workshop in 2019 and full production in 2020. The backdrop of today’s hate-filled rhetoric and Birmingham’s fractured past, RMTC is working to spark world-changing conversations – one individual at a time. For through great art, we explore issues and emotions too difficult for mere words. And, this exploration opens us to consider the life of another – our fellow man.

You do not have to go on the tours in a specific order! Take the second one first if you want! It is a completely different set of tales of dark history! These evening, lantern lit tours cover all of the dark and interesting history that began right with the founding of our “city in the midst of the wilderness” and continue right through the Civil Rights Era of the 1960’s (although most of the tales pre-date The Great War). Come. Grab a bit of shadowy darkness…and walk with us.
