The blog made its first visit to the renovated Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (on the grounds of the estate of Winston-Salem hosiery king James G. Hanes) this past Sunday to see a very interesting performance by the Alban Elved Dance Company. Prior to the performance Susan, Nate, and Jon strolled through the current exhibit, titled Look Again. There were several interesting pieces here. The most surprising was a wall of facial silhouettes, all produced by light shining on crumpled pieces of paper. (Look to the left of each piece to see the face.)
Jon and Susan are professors at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem. Jon is in the Department of Theatre and Dance. He has lived in Winston-Salem for 25+ years. Susan is in Biology, and has lived in Winston-Salem for 5+ years. Jon's neighborhood is Sherwood Forest; Susan's neighborhood is Ashley Forest. Maurice, who lives in the District of Columbia, serves as occasional capital correspondent.
