Hennessey Public Library

Like just about every other town from sea to shining sea, Hennesey, Oklahoma, will celebrate its own pioneer days this summer--parades and burgers, gospel quartets, and a mud bog full of slippery pigs. There’ll be more horses and cattle than your ordinary burg, because Main Street, Hennessey is the Chisolm Trail. In the 1870s, downtown Hennessey was the world's largest cattle yard.

Colin James digs into tonight's TOB. His new album is called Miles to Go, plus we have some local(ish) flava with Josh Hoyer from when his band was still called the Shadowboxers and we honor the memory of Otis Rush who passed away in late September.

The Morningside College Piano Recital Series will return with a performance for piano and cello Saturday evening at 7:30 in Eppley Auditorium. Gretchen talks with the pianist, Shichao Zhang and the cellist, Stephanie March, who met their freshman year of college at the Eastman School.

Sioux City Art Center

"The best way of approaching every experience that you have on a daily basis is with a freshness, with an openness, and to try to make sense of what is in front of you, rather than bringing all or your preconceptions to something," says Todd Behrens, curator at the Sioux City Art Center while looking at DELL (ray), a work by James Shrosbree, a painting that welcomes its viewers by first rejecting their past experiences.

Cultural Continuum 9-28-18

Sep 28, 2018

The Sioux City Symphony Orchestra takes us to a galaxy far, far away...not that long from now, actually as they open the 2018-2019 season with Star Wars - A New Hope this weekend. We've got theater covering everything from Frankenstein to Junie B. Jones and you can't throw a rock without hitting some kind of mineral or fossil show this weekend.

Sean Grennan

"I'm trying to make sense of this thing we have, this life we do," Sean Grennan, author of Now and Then, tells us. The play, which is running through September 30th at Lamb Arts Regional Theatre, found its beginning when the word "enouement" caught Grennan's eye. As a young man, an unknown word like this may have caused pause, a slight stumble, perhaps, in a brisk walk. In his early 60's, though, it was full stop.

Sioux City Art Center

"[At the center of the painting] there seems to be this infinite space... at the same time, when you start to look at everything else on the canvas, those areas also reveal a different kind of a depth, because it's depth through multiple layers of things."  Ex-Voto by Susan Chrysler White demonstrates how a flat canvas can reveal the complexities of us and things much bigger than us. The painting is part of the Sioux City Art Center's Permanent Collection and can be seen now on display in the Permanent Collection On View exhibition.
