A night of Art, Prayer, Jazz, and Worship focuses on introspection and reflections on several artists whose work illuminates relevant experiences of walking with Jesus Christ. In the background, we will experience jazz music as a holy work, spiritual work. Many jazz musicians were Christians and developed their talent within the church. In this way, we reclaim a music that has historical ties to ministry. Join us as we prayer, reflect, worship and fellowship. It will be an amazing, cool, night. Free
These days, it’s a bit shameful for Charlotteans not to know who Swiss architect Mario Botta is. He did, after all, design one of Uptown’s newer constructs, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. Sleek, post-modern and innovative, this building has become a staple of the Levine Center for the Arts for good reason. But there’s a lot more to Botta than what we can see in the Q.C. The Bechtler’s Mario Botta: Architecture and Memory is an exhibit that will clue visitors in on the architect’s 50-year career, with views of his constructs around the world. The fourth-floor gallery will feature sketches, architectural models and photographs. (Anita Overcash) $4-$8; Free for members and children 10 years old and under.
The exhibit features 12 works created by Max Bill between 1935 and 1979. This includes lithographs, serigraphs and sculptures.
