"It's Saturday Morning Somewhere, Too!" exhibition at Artists Wrestling League
AWL is bringing back this exhibition theme, which hearkens back to a time when Saturday morning cartoons and the attendant meal of sugary breakfast cereals was the high point of the week. Ralph Walters of the AWL said last year's "Saturday Morning" show received great reviews from both patrons and artists. "We had a lot of requests to bring it back," Walters said. "There's so much nostalgia around the idea of Saturday morning cartoons."Ohio Art League presents "Small Scrawl" at X Space Food Truck Festival at Columbus Commons Donna McCarty-Estep exhibition at 400 W.

Counterfeit Madison Nina Simone tribute at Notes
When Sharon Udoh, who records and performs as Counterfeit Madison, decided to put together a Nina Simone tribute concert earlier this year, she wasn't thinking about the socially charged nature of the jazz singer's catalogue. Months of political discord and racial tension further heightened by the July police killings of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, however, caused Udoh to reflect more deeply on the words in songs like "Mississippi Goddam" and "Strange Fruit," with its allusions to "black bodies swingin' in the Southern breeze.""Six One Four" exhibition reception at Open Door Studios Drake and Future at Nationwide Arena Booker T.

"Who I Be?" dance performance at the Garden Theater
Dance, song and text are all used in the Berry & Nance Dance Project's "Who I Be?" Co-founder Stafford C. Berry Jr. said the ensemble's performances often include more than just dance, but that "Who I Be?" takes the approach further, using the troupe's actual recollections of their own fathers and communities as inspiration to talk about what it means to be an African-American male in contemporary society.ProMusica Chamber Orchestra at Topiary Park "Surfaces" group exhibition continues at Hammond Harkins
