Foster Art Gallery, Patterson Hall

Portraits by Warren, Ohio-based artist Gary Taneri are currently on display in the Foster Art Gallery on the Westminster College campus. The exhibition, which runs through Feb. 17, features a selection of portraits that vary in size, method and completion.

For more information about the exhibition or the gallery reception, please contact Summer Zickefoose, gallery director and associate professor of art, at zickefse@westminster.edu or at 724-946-7267.

Celebrity Series: Postmodern Jukebox, Life in the Past Lane Tour
Will W. Orr Auditorium

When New York City pianist Scott Bradlee created Postmodern Jukebox out of a basement in Queens in 2011, his goal was simple: to remake the pop hits of today into the classic sounds of the legends of yesterday. Miley Cyrus became The Platters. Bruno Mars became Frank Sinatra. The Spice Girls became The Andrews Sisters. Guns ’n’ Roses became Bessie Smith.

Now, nearly a decade later, Postmodern Jukebox has grown to become a pop culture mainstay in its own right, having played over a thousand shows on six continents worldwide — including acclaimed venues like Radio City Music Hall, Sydney Opera House, and Red Rocks Amphitheater. In the process, PMJ has introduced audience to many of the world’s greatest singers, dancers, and instrumentalist — many of whom have gone on to become stars in their own right. One part celebration of vintage music and culture, one part “’Saturday Night Live’ for singers”, a Postmodern Jukebox show is an unforgettable trip back in time that makes Pop Music History — in your own hometown!

Amazing Astronomers of Antiquity
Hoyt 116 - Planetarium

Over 2,000 years ago ancient astronomers knew the Earth was round; they measured its diameter and distance from the Sun; knew the length of the year to the precision of our modern calendar; and developed a method for predicting eclipses. Ancient sailors navigated by the stars and some astronomers even suspected the Earth orbited the Sun.

Amazing Astronomers of Antiquity is a journey of learning from the Pantheon to the ancient Library of Alexandria to the pyramids of Egypt.

Discover why the Pantheon is an astronomical instrument, how Eratosthenes measured the Earth’s circumference, how the Saqqara Step Pyramid depicts the turning stars, who first claimed that the Earth orbits the Sun, and who created the Antikythera Mechanism with hundreds of gears to predict motions of the Sun, Moon and planets.

This show is recommended for grades 3+ (ages 8 and up).
