Jubilee Theatre  
Jubilee - Obama-ology
Performance: January 25 – February 24, 2019
By: Aurin Squire
When African-American college graduate Warren takes a job with the 2008 Obama campaign, he's fired up and ready to go – until he lands in the troubled streets of East Cleveland. But somewhere between knocking on doors, fending off cops, and questioning his own racial and sexual identity, he learns that changing society isn't as easy as he imagined. A stunning new play that demonstrates the resilience of the human spirit to overcome defeat at the hands of social repression and financial hardship.

From luscious leafy tendrils to stark horizon lines, this exhibition of prints by Hedda Sterne (1910–2011) celebrates the artist's exquisite variety of formal interests. Although most often associated with a group of artists called the "Irascibles"—avant-garde forerunners of Abstract Expressionism—Sterne defied stylistic categorization. Her aesthetic experimentations fluctuated between organic and geometric, figural and abstract, and painterly and graphic. All share, however, a passionate attention to detail and form. Free tours of this exhibition are available upon advance request. Schedule a tour by emailing adulttours@cartermuseum.org or calling (817) 989-5038.

Kimbell Art Museum - Goya in Black and White
Exhibition: October 7, 2018 to January 6, 2019
Francisco de Goya y Lucientes is among the best-known figures in the history of Spanish art and renowned as one of the greatest painters of all time. He is also revered as one of history's greatest draftsmen and printmakers. This exhibition will showcase more than seventy-five of his paramount works on paper from the unparalleled collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Goya in Black and White will explore the evolution of the artist's graphic work in all media. The importance of black and white will be shown throughout the exhibition—not only literally, in black ink on white paper, but also figuratively, as in the oppositions of night and day, the balance between menacing shadow and hopeful light, that pervade the artist's imagination.

Laurie Simmons: Big Camera/Little Camera  
The Modern - Laurie Simmons: Big Camera/Little Camera
Exhibition: Oct 14, 2018 - Jan 27, 2019
By: Laurie Simmons
Simmons's career-long exploration of archetypal gender roles, especially women in domestic settings, is the primary subject of this exhibition and is a topic as poignant today as it was in the late 1970s, when she began to develop her mature style by using props and dolls as stand-ins for people and places. Often isolating the dolls and photographing them situated in tiny, austere settings, Simmons uses fictional scenes to make observations about real life. These works are now iconic of her career. "Simmons's imagery takes into account her own experience of coming of age in the 1950s," says Andrea Karnes.

The Dork Knight - Written and performed by Jason O'Connell  
Amphibian Stage Productions - The Dork Knight
Performance: Thursday, December 6, 2018 to Sunday, December 16, 2018
Written and performed by Jason O'Connell
A look into one man's obsession with movies about another man's obsession with dressing up like a rodent and punching people, The Dork Knight traces the ups and downs of actor Jason O'Connell's personal and professional life as seen through the prism of his love/hate relationship with the Batman movies. Featuring "cameos" from the bat-voices in O'Connell's head, The Dork Knight strolls down a cinematic memory lane that begins with Tim Burton's iconic 1989 Batman, and extends beyond Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, all the while demonstrating how one's "inner-geek" can guide and inspire in good times and bad.
