Tea with Curator-The Domestic Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright in the...
McKinley Presidential Library & Museum – The great American architects of the late 19th and early 20th centuries seemed unwilling to abandon traditional influences in domestic architecture such as the High Victorian and assorted “revival” styles. After maturing for a time in the shadow of these masters, Frank Lloyd Wright established his own unique style by rejecting the old formulas, and explored new avenues of personal expression: every detail of a Wright design came from his own creative imagination. In this program, we’ll look at some of Wright’s most famous domestic designs, including examples found in Ohio and even in Canton. A brief epilogue will address other architects who have adopted Wrightian ideas in their work. The program will be presented by MJ Albecete, Director Emeritus of the Canton Museum of Art. The program is $15 and includes tea/coffee and breakfast sweets. Reservations are required. Please call 330-455-7043. The Museum is located at 800 McKinley Monument Dr. NW in Canton.

Shrek the Musical Jr
ArtsinStark – THERE'S STILL TIME TO ENROLL YOUR CHILD IN THIS CLASS. Register by January 19 at Everyone's favorite ogre is back in this hilarious stage spectacle, based on the Oscar-winning smash hit film and outrageous Broadway musical, performed by an all kid cast! Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family. Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek. One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task – if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn't be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.
