Between The World and Me

 

Between The World and Me is a phenomenal book that was transformed into a production by the same name for two nights in NYC and one night at the Kennedy Center in DC. This breathtaking performance was a moment in history I will not forget. With actors and performances reading Coates’ words, you were inspired and disgusted with the reason why he had to write this book to his son. I felt so much awe at the brilliance of the production and feel an incredible duty as an Educator to continue the work of equity and justice.

NASCAR Hall of Fame

The NASCAR Hall of Fame is an excellent site to visit in Charlotte, NC. With fun for the whole family, it is a must-see when you are in the Queen City. Interactive, photo worthy and engaging exhibitions fill the floors of the site with a thrilling simulation! Great spot for museum lovers, thrill seekers, car lovers and city enthusiasts.

There next event will be Easter Egg 400. Make sure you visit next time you’re there!

During my trip to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland I viewed the exhibition Ferran Adrià: Notes on Creativity. On view was a variety of information on the culinary mastermind whose research and cooking techniques declared him “Chef of the Decade” in 2010 by Restaurant Magazine. From sketches to drawings, the work of Adrià illuminated the work of the culinary mastermind. The wall text follows the proceeding image from the exhibition.

Sutton Initiative for Design Education (SIDE)

In the Spring of 2012, Salem Academy and College in Winston-Salem, NC opened the Sutton Initiative for Design Education (SIDE) named in honor of Salem Academy alumna Martha Allene Stevens Sutton A’71. SIDE includes donations of 900 books of furniture, architecture, design, history and interiors to Salem’s design research library that is one of the most impressive of its kind outside of Bienestock collection in High Point. The book collection is available for students at Salem’s Gramley library. In addition, SIDE has a program comprised of three components: collaboration, scholarship and research.

With a donation by the Suttons of nearly 40 chairs considered “icons” by furniture historians the Chair Library is the only one of its kind amongst colleges or universities in the United States of America.  Students will use the chairs for the inspiration and research they bring due to their unique design, materials and technology, innovation and creativity.

SIDE and the Chair Library were made possible through the generous support of Charles Sutton, Emily and Will Parsley, Marshall Sutton, David Sutton, Mrs. Allene B. Stevens, Mr. Paul Broyhill and the Broyhill Family Foundation and Mr. David B. Rea.

Below you will find a sample of some of the chairs I found during my visit:
