Thursday nite in Kutztopia: Two art openings and a five-buck jazz concert!

Anyone who still doubts tiny Kutztown’s status as the Biggest Little Cultural Mecca on the Eastern Seaboard® will certainly have a lot of explaining to do this evening.

With two glorious catered gallery receptions featuring fantastic artists, and then a fabulous concert by jazz trombone virtuoso Wycliffe Gordon, this is a night when a KU student can get his or her fill of food, great art, great tunes, and great conversation—hours of entertainment and learning and fun that won’t cost any more than a fin.*
Things get rolling at 4pm over in Sharadin (th’ art building) when young painter, curator, and Friend of Rohrbach Alicia Bonilla-Puig opens a show in the Student Gallery. The reception for An Interior View runs from 4pm-6pm.
From Sharadin it’s a short walk over here to Rohrbach Library where we host the amazing Frederic Toone Bacon, whose paintings and woodblock prints in the Second Floor Gallery showcase recent work by this 84-year-old master. It’s the library’s annual Black History Month exhibit in partnership with ACOR—which gallery Mr. Bacon founded. That was after he directed Art Education for the entire School District of Philadelphia for 30+ years.
Our reception is in RL 100B and on the Second Floor from 5pm-6:30pm. After that, hang out for a minute and then make your way over to the McFarland Student Union Building in time to catch Wycliffe Gordon and his band with their tribute to Louis Armstrong. It’s another excellent show in the KU Presents! Performing Arts Series.
Just another night on campus. Welcome to Kutztopia, kids.
*That’s a five-dollar bill. Tickets for the show are $5 for KU students.
