A RETRO PERSPECTIVE: REVISITING PRINTS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION
In 1973, the Norton Center celebrated its grand opening with an exhibition of works loaned by the Guggenheim Museum. Many of the artists who were featured are now considered pioneers of Modern Art — artists including Andy Warhol, Karel Appel and Adolph Gottlieb. The exhibition inspired Centre College to actively collect graphic prints by these artists and their contemporaries. To celebrate the Norton Center’s 50th anniversary, selections from this special collection will be exhibited throughout the season.
Centre College`s brand-new Regional Arts Center (now the Norton Center for the Arts) was finally finished, and only one week away from opening its doors to the public for the first time.
But the building was far from quiet or empty... between final building touch-ups, to preparations for the opening night performance of 𝑶𝒕𝒆𝒍𝒍𝒐, to installing the first-ever exhibit in the Grand Foyer, it was all hands on deck over the next week.
Cimarrón arrived in Kentucky and didn`t waste a single second! We had an INCREDIBLE day of diving into Colombian culture, learning about Joropo and experiencing unforgettable live music.
Last Thursday, Cimarrón:
🌟 Performed a student matinee that had 300 K-12 students and teachers out of their seats dancing by the end!
🌟 Answered questions and performed a demonstration for 65 students, faculty, staff and community members participating in the Exploring Colombian Culture workshop (sponsored by the Latine Club, facilitated by Sol Cabrera and Santiago de la Paz).
🌟 Had a jam session for 12 Centre students, faculty and community members, where 5 students joined the band onstage to play together. Ever seen a saxophone and violin play alongside a deer-skull whistle, harp and maracas? We did!
🌟 Performed for a sold-out Weisiger audience that ended with a standing ovation and left all of us in AWE!
Thank you, Cimarron, for spending the day with us! 🇨🇴 🎵
Experience the fast-paced, high-energy group bringing the music of the Columbian and Venezuelan Plains all the way to Danville. Get ready to dance in your seat, because this performance isn`t meant for sitting still!
