EXHIBITION: A Day In Pompeii 

Tuesday, Nov. 4

Having already viewed the exhibition A Day In Pompeii while it was on display at the Science Museum of Minnesota, I was thrilled about its stop at Discovery Place. I have only three words for you: Go see it. This exhibition tells the story of the ancient Roman city Pompeii before the catastrophic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius left it buried and forgotten. It displays authentic artifacts, religious relics, cooking items, furniture, frescoes, jewelry and more, all adding up to more than 250 well-preserved items. Other highlights include plaster casts of preserved men and women (and a little dog too), who were unable to escape the devastating day in Pompeii. Through Jan. 4, 2009. A Day In Pompeii. $17-$20. Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sunday, 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Discovery Place, 301 North Tryon St. 704-372-6261. www.discoveryplace.org.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
