Beads: A Journey Across Cultures


For thousands of years, people all over Earth have created beads. These tiny objects have decorated clothes, covered important items, and even served as money. While, on their own, beads might all seem similar, their use—and their incredible details—can reveal important information about the cultures that created them. Explore how anthropologists and archeologists can trace strands of human history through these tiny bits of stone, clay, and glass. And as you travel in time, you’ll discover some astonishing works of art.

Amphibian Theatre  
Amphibian Stage Productions - Fleabag
Performance: Wednesday, September 30th (2pm) - Saturday, October 3 (1pm) 2020
THIS IS A SCREENING OF A PREVIOUSLY RECORDED LIVE PRODUCTION. IT IS NOT A LIVE EVENT.
See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC's hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast live to cinemas from London's West End. Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, this 67 minute play is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life. Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

Jubilee Theatre presents Trey Anthony's “Da Kink in My Hair” streaming August 14th–August 30th  
Jubilee Theatre - Da Kink In My Hair

Performance: Streaming August 14th – August 30th
By: Trey Anthony
Da Kink in My Hair honors the importance of hair for Black Women. Director Junene K. (pictured left) states "What am I gonna do with this hair?" It's not just a cosmetic question, it is a life direction question. Hair is a crown, it is a symbol of identity, an unweighted accessory that carries so much weight. Our hair goes with us through many of life's journeys. It grows, it falls out, we color it, we straighten it, we manipulate it and it becomes the silent voice to our story.”

Amon Carter  
Amon Carter - Meditations: Eleanore Mikus at Tamarind

Exhibition on Display: September 19, 2020–April 18, 2021

The more you look, the more you see. Beginning in the 1960s, artist Eleanore Mikus (1927–2017) created monochromatic, contemplative abstractions that respond to the light and shadows of their surroundings in an almost sculptural way. These experimental compositions draw you in, rewarding those willing to linger in front of her subtle, sometimes puzzling, pieces with moments of peaceful calm.

Ken O'Toole - Abundance  
Ken O'Toole - Where We Are Now
Since then the "new normal" has become more than just a inconvenience. So, there have been divisions over the matter. Like myself, many made their precautions part of their everyday life. Some grew complacent Others merely threw caution to the wind. Sadly, the last group made it necessary to continue our safety procedures by spreading the virus. As you know, this has also cost many lives. So, I responded with new work that expressed not only my grief for those we have lost, but also my frustration with what I see as the root cause of this and other maladies festering in our country. This is a photographic series documenting sculptural drawings I created. Thank you for your interest.

Using space from Clear Channel Outdoor as programming sites, Assistant Curators of Education Jesse Morgan Barnett and Tiffany Wolf Smith work with a variety of artists to situate imagery and text onto billboards, elements of the city that traditionally present commercial advertisements rather than cultural curiosities. For MODERN BILLINGS, artists place works into under-served communities along the periphery of downtown Fort Worth. These large-scale installations along Jacksboro Highway and the Lancaster corridor extend the reach of the Modern and the Education Department and provide an intervention opportunity for contemporary art in urban landscapes.

Stage West - Everything Will Be Fine
Performance: Sept 3 - 27, 2020, Thursday-Sunday evenings, 8:15PM
By: Zoe Kerr, choreographed by Kwame Lilly
Is about a woman learning how to deal with a new world and her well-meaning friends after experiencing an unthinkable loss. The piece, which is told entirely with music and dance, moves the young woman and her friends through the stage area, lit partly by flashing car lights, in this taut 45-minute experience. As she learns to bring joy out of a tragic situation, we learn that to accept our loss and embrace our present circumstances, we'll have to take it one dance at a time. Stage West audiences should find it both moving and uplifting, an unforgettable evening of theatre.
