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.

Is there a higher aim to decoration? Are ‘high’ and ‘low’ art distinctions even still relevant? Hear what local artists and academics think as they share works of art that exemplify or defy classification.

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.

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.

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.

Dolores Hydock Silence: The Adventure of a Medieval Warrior Woman

Birmingham

Silence: The Adventure of a Medieval Warrior Woman is a wickedly funny, plot-twisting tale of greed, lust, deceit, revenge, and the rewards and sacrifices that come from finding your true voice. Based on a story written in the 13th century, and adapted for 21st-century audiences, Silence tells of a girl raised as a boy to protect her inheritance, since women were not allowed to inherit property in the England of the day. At crucial points in her life, the story’s main character — a kind of 13th-century Annie Oakley — must choose the weapon with which she’ll face the world: a jeweled sword or a sewing needle. Which would you choose?
