Art with the Masters- Alisa Koch
Jan 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

 

Join us for a fun evening alongside Alabama native artist, Alisa Koch as you create captivating minimalist landscapes. “Alisa strives to harness nature’s ‘movement’ in her work. Each brushstroke pushes and pulls the color right to the edge of losing the color it needs to be. She focuses on the shapes and patterns of nature and the effect they have on the senses.” Learn to see landscapes in terms of colors and shapes, mixing oils from a limited palette and using a palette knife to blend and shape the landscape form. All skill levels are welcome. Light refreshments will be provided for your enjoyment while you learn the art of the minimalist landscape!

RSVP by January 15th

Cost is : $30 for members,  $40 for future members.

Space is limited. All supplies are provided.

 

This event is currently SOLD OUT

The Struggle to Desegregate Columbus’ Public Libraries
Feb 7 @ 6:00 pm

 

In the summer of 1963, nearly 40 African American teenagers protested the segregation of Columbus’ public libraries through organized “read-ins.” Though they faced scorn and arrest, the young people continued their silent protests for weeks, leading to the libraries’ desegregation. For the first time together, four of the activists – Christine Dawson, Gwendolyn Jackson, Ibrahim Mumin, and Cleophas Tyson – will share their stories. This roundtable discussion will be moderated by Dr. Wayne A. Wiegand, author of The Desegregation of Public Libraries in the Jim Crow South. Learn more about this vital moment in local Civil Rights history with the people who lived it.

This event is FREE and open to the public but pre-registration is encouraged.

To RSVP, contact Liliana Harrell at 706.748.2562 ext. 2124 or lharrell@columbusmuseum.com by February 1.
