A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

March 29, 2020 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Broadway’s greatest farce is fast-paced, witty and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum combines situations from the 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom.

Quilt Expo and Exhibits

The Carrollton Center for the Arts and the Southeastern Quilt and Textile Museum are joining forces this week to showcase the art of quilting, beginning February 21. The quilt museum’s Imagine 2020: A Quilting Expo, February 21 and 22, will feature exhibits, vendors, workshops, speakers and demonstrations for quilters at the Center for the Arts and at the museum.

In conjunction with the expo, the center will host a public reception starting at 5:00 p.m. to mark the opening of JAM Session, an invitational exhibit in the Roush Gallery of works by the members of the Georgia/South Carolina region of Studio Art Quilt Associates.

“These quilts show the potential of the medium to express complex ideas and realistic imagery, which can be difficult to do with sewn fabric,” said Carrollton Visual Arts Coordinator Marcella Kuykendall. “The four artists approach their pieces in a unique fashion, allowing visitors to see several techniques and viewpoints within one exhibit.“

In conjunction with Studio Art Quilt Associates, the quilt museum will host a show in their gallery called A Thread Runs Through It through the end of April.

“I would say that these exhibits are not your grandmother’s quilts,” said Tim Chapman, Carrollton’s arts superintendent. “The quilts do not include repetition in design and therefore might lead the viewer to think they are paintings.”

As an expo extra, the Carrollton Presbyterian Church will host A Congregation of Quilts, a free exhibition by the West Georgia Quilt Guild, from 9am-4pm, also on February 21.
