Only Yesterday

Only Yesterday Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Paul McCartney and John Lennon together again for one night only. This intimate play by Hollywood writer Bob Stevens (The Wonder Years, Murphy Brown, Malcolm In The Middle) brings to life a little known night when John and Paul were becoming the most famous young men on earth. Stranded in a hotel room in Key West, they do what many young men do when they’re bored–get drunk. They have some laughs, but as their talk turns serious, they bond over the revelation of traumatic childhood events they have in common and find inspiration for the music that changed our lives.

Advisory: Ages 12 and up.

Time: 1/31/18 7:30pm - 2/18/18 9:30pm

"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis

"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

The Castleton University Art Galleries are excited to share "Living With The Earth," three collections of paintings by Joan Curtis, at Rutland City Hall. The Sunken Treasures group was engendered by abstracted still-life studies from Joan’s sculptures, which in turn suggest under-the-sea imagery. The panel group At One with Nature’s Wiles refers to humans living with dramatic changes in the world of nature. The Peaceable Kingdom series expresses the hope that we can continue to live with the wild animals of the Earth. All three collections were created between 2008 and 2015.

Time: 10/2/17 8:30am - 3/30/18 5:00pm
Location: Rutland City Hall, 1 Strongs Avenue, Rutland
