Description: Our artist-in-residence Kris Schmolze has been working on collaborating on with our artists on a collage installation and creating new works of his own that will be displayed side by side in our gallery for November FF! Kris states: "I want to make a non-destructive and positive impact in the world through sustainable art and sustainable living. I pull items out of the waste stream giving them a different purpose than initially intended to use them in a new ways, collaging images, sounds and materials into artworks, environments and experiences. Visual collages layer images combining old ideas into curiosities of today. By layering recorded sounds an audible collage unfolds combining recognizable notes and undistinguished noises. Constructing sustainable buildings from natural and manufactured materials integrates naturally into the environment. All of these are forms of collage are combining pre-existing materials into something new. My previous work with interactive noise machines ties into the layering of my current soundscapes. This work is an extension of William Burroughs cutups both in sound and vision. John Cage, Bernie Kraus and Christian Marclay have influenced my approach to art and sound. Michael Reynolds has influenced my way of making sustainable homes. I draw inspiration from science and technology and how they both reform human understanding of all things while disintegrating world views." Submitted by: Jillian Youngbird Imagine That!

Reno: The Rise & Fall of a Tiny Kansas Town

Get more info about this event »

Description: Marie Brockhoff's Kansas History Day award-winning performance tells the surprising, compelling story of Reno through the lives of two women, Georgina Phenicie and her daughter, Ruth. In the late 1880s, 400 freed slaves came to the community. Reno was fully integrated and had all kinds of businesses. But the black population dwindled to just 47 by the 1920s, a decline coinciding with the rise of the Ku Klux Klan. Marie's performance reveals this history and why it matters now.

Description: Join award-winning author and Western historian Mark Warren for a presentation on the life of Wyatt Earp. After 63 years of research, Mr. Warren brings to us his new trilogy “Wyatt Earp, An American Odyssey.” No man is just one thing. No man has a spotless record. For a writer, balancing all the elements of truth is an artful endeavor. With Earp this process has been made all the more problematic by the bias of historians, themselves. Sanitized versions of Wyatt Earp’s life fill library book shelves. Right next to them are the condemning anti-Earp publications. Author Mark Warren discusses his Earp experiences that span six decades of research from Georgia to California. His Earp trilogy is a story of balance, incorporating all the known facts about the famous peace officer’s life and his perspective on the principles by which Earp lived his life—and why he sometimes veered from that credo. Join us for a study of all things Earp and the photographs that chronicle his life. The Venue: Topeka Shawnee County Public Library, 1515 SW 10th Ave. Topeka 66604 (785) 580-4400 Mr. Warren’s books can be found out Page 1 Books in Albuquerque.

42FT- A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels- Cirque Mechanics

Get more info about this event »

Description: At the center of every circus rests a 42-foot ring full of thrills, laughs and excitement. 42FT – A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels, is the latest invention from the creative minds of Cirque Mechanics. The company dares us to leap into the circus ring and experience the timelessness of this evolving art form. The show’s unique mechanical interpretation of the traditional, and its story full of the lore of the historic one-ring circus, create a welcoming place, like a big top, where we can be amazed. The action in 42FT is full of theatricality and a modern sensibility, showcasing a galloping mechanical metal horse and a rotating tent frame for strongmen, acrobats and aerialists. Cirque Mechanics, inspired by modern circus, finds its roots in the mechanical and its heart in the stories of American industrial ingenuity. The shows, imbedded in realism, display a raw quality rarely found in modern circus. Cirque Mechanics signature style is wrapped in acrobatics, mechanical marvels and a bit of clowning around. 42FT follows the great successes of Birdhouse Factory, Boomtown and Pedal Punk. Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, to the Cirque Mechanics world of gears and canvas, pulleys and sawdust — within 42FT. Submitted by: Todd Holmberg McCain Performance Series

With a loyal fan base spanning generations and countries, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers are the only duo with top 40 titles on Billboard 200 in the '80s, '90s, '00s and '10s. After signing with Epic Records in the late 80s, Indigo Girls released their acclaimed eponymous album, which included the spellbinding hit “Closer to Fine.” The album reached double platinum status and earned Ray and Saliers a GRAMMY nomination for “Best New Artist” and a GRAMMY award for “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” Since that breakthrough record, the duo has released 14 albums, received six GRAMMY nominations and earned a GRAMMY award for “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” Most recently, they released their 14th studio album, titled One Last Day, in 2015. In addition to their music, the Indigo Girls are dedicated to activism and social causes including human rights, women’s health, environmental issues, LGBTQIA rights and more. Proceeds of their “Take Action Tees” go to causes they support. “Along with Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers rank at the very top of all-time great duos. The sublime music-making-machine-skewering “Making Promises” is one of their finest rockers.” – The Boston Herald Tickets for Indigo Girls range from $39 to $69, plus applicable fees and will go on sale to the public on Friday, August 2 at 10 a.m. Submitted by: Sydney Poteet Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts
