ESMoA Experience #31: HOPE

September 17 – January 28, 2018

ESMoA HOPEEl Segundo Museum of Art presents Experience #31: HOPE, opening on Sunday, September 17 at 10 a.m. with an introduction by Curator Frency Fernandez, scheduled for 2 p.m.

HOPE explores the reciprocal influence of western and latin American video and new media art in Cuba. No other country has been so equally torn between love and hate, desire and neglect, isolation and reception, western and eastern ideologies. Indeed, the Caribbean island nation is so full of contradiction that it is no wonder it became a hotbed for contemporary and new media art. The richness and sheer number of Cuba’s facets grew from postmodern, neo-baroque, conceptual and minimalistic roots – to name just a few western influences.

Experience #31: HOPE, will run through January 28, 2018.

September 15 – October 1, 2017

spelling-beePalos Verdes Performing Arts presents the multiple Tony Award-winning musical comedy The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee from September 15 through October 1 at the Norris Theatre.

The show instantly spells F-U-N as a quirky group of adolescent overachievers (played by adult actors) go head to head with each other in a spelling bee championship, while coping with overzealous parents, teen crushes, sabotage attempts, and the trials and tribulations of puberty. The hysterically funny tale will have you rooting for the unlikeliest of heroes – the awkward, but charmingly loveable cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
