ART & PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITS

Side By Side: A Collaboration of Bill Schaefer and Jim Engler, retired Grand View professors
February 14 - March 27 • Reception: February 18, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
Prairie Meadows Gallery, Student Center
2811 East 14th Street, Des Moines


The Side By Side exhibit is a collaboration between two artists, one using graphite and ink drawings, the other using black and white, and color photos. We hope these dual images lead viewers to a broader appreciation of single subjects when it is depicted through two different visual media. Subjects in this exhibit include self-portraits, organic forms in nature, buildings and industrial settings.

Make Believe by Kristin Anna Forberg

A captivating drama that explores the dynamics of a family who has a child that has been missing for five years. Natasha, the remaining sister, lives partly in her mind and partly in her home, which she has not left since the disappearance of her sister. When the case is suddenly re-opened, Natasha is forced to decide: Reality or imagination? Make believe or truth?

This children’s play with audience participation is wonderful for the whole family!  Georgie is a little girl who spends most of the time playing in the alley behind her apartment. You might think she’s lonely out there, but she’s got the magic of her imagination and a French pastry chef friend to keep her busy.  Things get a little wild in the alley when a lost dog needs Georgie’s help to escape the clutches of the evil dog-catcher.

The box office opens one hour before the show. For more information about theatre events and to order tickets, call 515-263-2892.
