North Coast Big Band swings back for Rhythm on Rover gig
GRAND RAPIDS - The North Coast Big Band will perform the Rhythm on the River Arts Series concert Sunday at 4 p.m. in the Wright Pavilion on the towpath between the canal and the Maumee River at the end of Lincoln Street.
This is the band's 15th appearance in the concert series.
The 16-piece Big Band, under the direction of Gary Keller, was formed in 1988 by members of the North Coast Concert Band. The group's repertoire includes traditional big band music from bands led by Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, and Duke Ellington. The band also plays several big band jazz pieces popular with the fans of "swing music".
Enriquez' migration paintings part of Journey Stories
Bowling Green artist Emanuel H. Enriquez will exhibit paintings from his Migration Series at the Wood County Historical Museum in conjunction with the Smithsonian traveling exhibit Journey Stories through Sept. 15.
The Migration Series depicts Mexicanos migrating to the United States in the first half of the 20th Century. The people in the paintings are family members of the artist, and are based from photographs collected by his sister while researching her family's genealogy. Currently, Enriquez is working the eighth painting in the series.
Migration Series localizes the message of Our Expanded World, the last section of the Smithsonian traveling exhibit Journey Stories. This section of the exhibit addresses the importance of mobility: "We also pull up stakes and move our families in pursuit of new opportunities. Meanwhile, people from distant shores yearn to become Americans, as they have for nearly 400 years."

UT art educators take part in D.C. bone event
University of Toledo Senior Lecturer Karen Roderick-Lingeman and Professor of Art Tom Lingeman, both of Perrysburg, traveled to Washington, D.C. in June to deliver and install nearly 3000 ceramic bones made in Toledo to an international art installation on the National Mall called "One Million Bones."
Participants from across the world contributed bone sculptures in an effort to raise awareness of the scale of the loss of life in ongoing genocide and mass atrocities worldwide.
Beginning last fall, Roderick-Lingeman worked with her UT students in 3D Fundamentals of Form to create hundreds of ceramic bones. The campus community was engaged during an afternoon of bone-making on Centennial Mall, in front of the Student Union, with her class and with Adam Shiverdecker and his Ceramics I students.
Also, Roderick-Lingeman and her students set up on-site studios for members of the public to make bones during community events.
From June 8-10, the bones, made of ceramic or other biodegradable materials, were ceremonially installed by hundreds of volunteers dressed all in white.
