ARTIST INTRODUCTION: LEONOR ANTUNES
Thursday, August 21 at 7 p.m.

Join Leonor Antunes to hear how she responds to modernist architecture, design and craft with her newly commissioned site-specific installation on the first floor project gallery near PAMM's entrance.On view through January 18. Berlin-based artist Leonor Antunes' (b. 1972) work often references the legacies of modernism, specific geometric forms, and the patterns and structures of lesser known architects and designers from the early 20th century. Antunes is particularly attentive to the elegance of the handmade, using materials and techniques that often reference the distinct contexts in which she works, including those of her native Portugal. Signature materials include cork, leather, brass ropes, and nets. Mathematics, measurement, and the beauty of specific scales and proportions, inform her practice. Free with museum admission. Adults $12; students, seniors and youth 6-18 $8; members, children under 6 and active military free.

CENTRALIA
Through August 31

Three people refused to leave and travel the globe to tell the world their story. Using a mixture of comedy, cabaret, dance and music, this brave new play explores the relationships that can only be formed through this unique disaster. Bonnie Sherman as Jennyfer, Theo Reyna as Norman and Troy Davidson as Alistair (pictured). General admission tickets are $30 and $15 for students.

QUILTING BEE WITH TEXTILE ARTIST MICHELLE POLISSAINT
Thursday, August 28 at 4:30 to 8 p.m.

Long-ignored and conspicuously absent from many early accounts of American quilt history, African American quilting has become a growing area of study.

Their surviving quilts provide a unique history of their lives and culture. Bring your own quilting basket to the Quilting Bee to share techniques and stories and view the exhibition When the Stars Begin to Fall Imagination and the American South. $10 admission includes Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale entrance; free for Museum members, NSU students and faculty.
