Atlanta, Georgia- The High Museum of Art in Atlanta has acquired a new painting, Mogamma and its creator artist Julie Mehretu discussed her work at a lecture on April 21. 

Mogamma is part of a series that mixes the role of the public square and how it is as site of social and political change that connects to the community. Mogamma references the events of the Arab Spring and the buildings just south of Tahrir Square of Cairo. In this work buildings are showed and the layers of gestural marks suggest migrant patters of people and their movement. The Arab Spring is still fresh in our collective minds and we really don’t know if it made a difference but through social media the world was able to see a revolution in real time.

Atlanta, Georgia- No doubt that the world changed after the events of 9/11, but the US has lost its way.  In this book, The Way of the World, Ron Suskind points inside the Bush administration and the many contradictions that lied inside of it. 

This book is fascinating, it moves from the top levels of government to what is happening on the street.  How the Bush Administration with the world and the personal diplomacy that Bush practiced was a challenge. This work also points to the declining moral leadership that has been lost.

Roswell, Georgia- When I hear references to Camelot, I am reminded of the optimism and youth of the Kennedy Presidency which marked the dawn of the modern age. I have read snippets but never really followed the stories of Camelot.

The Georgia Ensemble Theatre has provided a great service in its current production of Camelot which runs through April 27. 

They re-create the magic of this tale on stage, staring Bryant Smith as Arthur and Chris Kayser as Merlyn along with a full talented cast.  This musical version is full of wonderful numbers and brings to life a group of honorable men trying to make the wrongs into rights in a world full of evil.  Bryant Smith creates a vulnerable unsure Arthur who discovers his way as he follows his instinct and the fortune shared by Merlyn.

Atlanta, Georgia- If you really want to experience a full classic Shakespearian play there is no place better than the Shakespeare Tavern.  This place also is one of the only 3 places in the planet that has performed all of the Bard’s plays.

 Right now on the main stage is Macbeth just in time for spring and the time of renewal.  It teaches you that you can’t simply kill one person; you got to keep on killing to cover your tracks. Your worst enemy can be guilt fueled by greed and revenge.
