Cultural Continuum 9-14-18

Sep 14, 2018

We get to the second and third acts of the Sioux City International Film Festival, Five Free Bands at the festival formerly known as WITStock, Mexico's 4th of July (on September 16th) and all that doesn't even get us through the weekend!

University of Minnesota

Lydia Artymiw, who has performed with many of the world's great symphonies and chamber groups and collaborated with musicians such as Yo Yo Ma and Kim Kashkashian, will open this year's Morningside Piano Recital Series. Those coming to this recital will hear a tremendous program featuring Mozart, Zaimont, Debussy, and Schumann. It begins at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 16, in Eppley Auditorium.

Coming up today on The Exchange, we will get a preview of this Sunday’s Mexican Independence Day celebration downtown.  

Also, a talk with writer and new age philosopher Marianne Williamson who will be in Sioux City for an event tomorrow night.   Williamson says America needs to take a hard look at its values.

And what to expect at Friday evening’s GlOW Festival at Western Iowa Tech Community College.

The Ruralists

On their first full-length album, The Ruralists have collected a series of 10 songs that capture the physical and 

emotional landscape of a character who lives, loves, struggles, and dreams in a place not unlike Siouxland. It's an album that rewards listening to as an album, but it's also an album of songs that can stand alone. You find yourself going back to certain songs just for the joy of singing along or for rocking out. 

Sioux City Art Center

It's a way to paint something as it really looks, but it's not what your conscious brain is really telling you it should look like, because there shouldn't be all these colors.

Todd Behrens, Curator at the Sioux City Art Center, begins our series exploring art with a still life that reveals an odd gap existing between what we think we see and what we really see. 

This is Jorge and you are listening to Check It Out.

I was a boy in the 1950s, forty long years after November 11, 1918, Armistice Day, when the unimaginable carnage of the First World War finally ended. As a kid, I knew very little about my great uncle, who, by way of a grenade thrown100 years ago next month, met his death in some battlefield gully in France. What I knew is that he'd been killed in the Great War, and that my parents had better attend Decoration Day rallies in the cemetery south of town.
