      Museum of Glass, Tacoma Washington

      Museum of Glass is proud to present Chihuly Drawings. This new exhibition, organized across mediums—graphite, charcoal, and acrylic—will show work that directly represents the energy behind Dale Chihuly’s artistic process. He describes this energy as “spontaneous, fast, immediate,” and this thirty-five-year survey of over 180 drawings conveys this immediacy as never seen before. The excitement of Chihuly’s two-dimensional work is in its unpredictability and organic expressiveness—the same elements that distinguish the artist’s signature work in glass.

      University of Puget Sound, Tacoma Washington

      In the world of classical music a turning point is often reached when a brilliant composer, who is a master of the music of the day, stretches his or her talents a little further. The new works thereby created reach into uncharted territory and are often highly influential on composers who follow. Pianist Jooeun Pak ’04, visiting assistant professor and alumna of University of Puget Sound, has selected four such pivotal pieces for her debut faculty recital. Her concert, titled Back to the Future, features Beethoven, Martin, and Vine. Everyone is welcome and ticket information is below. Jooeun Pak ’04 won the gold medal in the Korean National Competition at the age of 10, and has since won prizes in national and international piano competitions. She has appeared in major concert venues, including Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall, New York; Yamaha Hall in New York; Terrace Theater in The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.; Landmark Concert Hall in Indianapolis; and Bennett Gordon Hall in Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute in Chicago. A highly versatile artist, Pak performs both standard and contemporary works, in chamber and orchestral settings. Her performances have been praised as “brilliant and supercharged” by renowned composer Don Freund, who wrote Rabble Rouser…for Jooeun Pak, which she performed in a world premiere.

Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant. Saturday, Feb 21 & 28, 11am & 2pm, Sunday, Feb 22 & Mar 1, 2pm.
