Heads up - A.J. Rocco's is serving up a huge portion of unplugged Reggae around 9 PM tonight only - Carlos Jones!! FREE!

From the Carlos Jones website at http://www.carlosjones.com/:

"Carlos Jones is to Cleveland reggae what Jim Brown is to Cleveland running backs: the undisputed champ. With Jones at the forefront of the scene for more than 25 years -- first in I-Tal, then in First Light -- this city's reggae following was practically built upon his back. Devoutly spiritual, Jones is a Bob Marley devotee who eschews dancehall for galvanized roots-reggae. Jones and his PLUS Band were voted Best Live Act at the 2004 Scene Music Awards and Best Reggae / World Act for 2005, and they maintain a hectic pace of gigging, playing out every single weekend. As a result, the band's soulful riddims have made it one of Cleveland's top draws for close to a decade." Cleveland Scene Magazine August 3, 2005

A lecture by Rachel Sternberg, Ph.D., Assitant Professor of Classics.

Educated 18th-century Europeans thought of ancient Athens as an enlightened age much like their own, where one could observe the intellectual and moral progress of the human mind. Did Thomas Jefferson and other Founders view Athens in the same way? If so, how did they construe the contradition between slavery and humane ideal in Athens - a contradition that they themselves faced in America? In 1788, the French numismatist Jean-Jaques Barthelemy published an eight volume work, The Travels of Anacharsis the Younger in Greece, told from the point of view of an imaginary Scythian visiting Greece in the fourth century B.C. It was a huge success, comprising 40 editions, and Thomas Jefferson purchased a set for his library at Monticello. Anacharsis, then, allows us to explore the historical imagination of the Enlightenment through a work that crossed the Atlantic and shaped thinking in the New World as well as in the Old. This talk focuses on how Barthelemy dealt with Athenian slavery and judicial slave torture: his selection and handling of the ancient evidence for those institutions, and his attempt to reconcile them with the brilliance of Athens.

  Generations: The School of Viktor Schreckengost
3/17 – 4/14/06 , Wed. - Fri 10-5 & Sat 12-4;  ph. 216-721-9020 http://www.artistsarchives.org/

The Artists Archives is proud to take part in the exhibitions and celebrations commemorating the centennial of Viktor Schreckengost’s birth with an unusual show of original drawings and objects from the collection of the prominent Cleveland-based design firm Nottingham – Spirk.
Schreckengost has been a seminal figure in his own right in contemporary American design since the 1930’s. As an educator he has impacted countless students, influencing three generations of commercial and industrial designers.

“The School of Viktor Schreckengost” explores one corner of that ever-widening sphere of influence, displaying a selection of Viktor’s original studies and objects designed for mass consumption, plus a selection of familiar objects created by seven of his former students – familiar because they have become part of our daily lives.

Opening Reception March 17, 2006 from 5-8pm. This event is free and open to the public, RSVP unnecessary but please feel free to call 216-721-9020 for further details. Please note that across the hall The Sculpture Center’s annual On a Pedastel show, 3/10 – 4/14/06 was selected this year by Viktor Schreckengost. Together the two exhibits offer a unique chance to glimpse the mind of one of the past century’s most celebrated designers.
New hours, during exhibitions only: Wed. – Fri. 10am – 4pm, Sat. 12 – 4pm, admission free and open to public. Groups welcome: off-hour gallery tours can be arranged by appointment, if necessary. AAWR is an independent entity, self-sustaining through a fee charged to Archived Artists for storage space utilized. It is also supported through grants, contributions, and fundraising activities. Selections of Archived work are shown at various corporate locations throughout the region, thus another source of revenue is the fee charged for such corporate memberships.
