UNCW Presents: Donald Furst, “Ways” Exhibition

CAB Gallery UNCW’s Campus, 5270 Randall Drive, Wilmington, NC 28403 10:00 a.m - 4:00 p.m. | Details

Furst has been part of the UNCW Department of Art and Art History since 1985, teaching courses in printmaking, drawing, and pastel.

The art works on display share a common theme of gazing down a pathway into the distance. Many of the images are based on public places like Carolina Beach State Park, Halyburton Park and the Gary Shell Cross City Trail.

During his recovery from an accidental fall and broken back, the artist took many walks in area woods, leading to the idea for the exhibit.

Following the opening reception, the exhibition will run through Friday, Feb. 18, 2022. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The CAB Gallery is located in the UNCW Cultural Arts Building.

Drumline Live

UNCW Kenan Auditorium 515 Wagoner Drive Wilmington, NC 28403 | 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM | Details

Riveting rhythms, bold beats, and ear-grabbing energy

DRUMLine Live is an international tour based on the Historically Black College and University (HBCU) marching band tradition. With riveting rhythms, bold beats, and ear-grabbing energy, this stage show is a synchronized musical showcase of the HBCU experience. DRUMLine Live Incorporates original compositions and soul-infused interpretations of top 40 hits. Group performances range from colorful, choreographed routines to heavy doses of drum riffs and cadences. “Taking us on a journey through the timeline of music directly responsible for our modern drumlines, the cast begins with a scene of brightly garbed drummers, entertaining us with African drums and tribal dances, giving us the message right from the start that this wasn’t a concert where anyone could be anything but titillated to the extremes of their sensibilities.”- The Nashville Examiner
