ART & PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITS
 

 
Moments Through My Lens
Photographs by Shane Abbitt
February 19 – April 9
Prairie Meadows Photography Gallery
Student Center, 2811 East 14th Street, Des Moines
Artist Reception: February 23, 5-7 p.m.
 
An eclectic collection of Abbit's recent works. He says "my photography is simply an attempt to make an image worthy of capturing a viewer’s attention for more than a moment. My subjects are often athletes in action or birds in flight, but I also love the challenge of finding a unique perspective of a still subject or landscape."

THEATRE PERFORMANCES
Student Center Viking Theatre
2811 E. 14th Street

 
Clyborne Park
by Bruce Norris, 2011 Pulitzer Prize and 2012 Tony Award winner
March 9 – 11 • 7:30 p.m.
March 12 • 2:00 p.m.
Student Center Viking Theatre
2811 East 14th Street, Des Moines
 
Clyborne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.

April 20 – 21 • 7:30 p.m.
Student Center Viking Theatre
2811 East 14th Street, Des Moines
Enjoy a variety of theatrical pieces during these entertaining evenings of very short plays. There’s something for everyone in this buffet of plays!
