Through the Microscopic Lens 

Sunday, August 26

Ever wanted to go "through the looking glass," or in this case through the microscopic lens to find out just what it is that makes us tick? No, of course, you didn't and neither did Alice. All she wanted to do was play with the cute, little white rabbit. But, as we've all learned from repeated viewings of The Matrix, knowing everything isn't all it's cracked up to be. During Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS: The Anatomical Exhibition of Real Human Bodies, you're taken on a thrill ride beneath the surface ... of the skin into a world of sinews and muscle. Using plastination, von Hagens has revolutionized specimen preservation and created a pretty damn creepy presentation in the process. The exhibition runs through Oct. 28. Mon-Wed, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Thu-Sun, 9 a.m.-8 p.m. $16-$22. Discovery Place, 301 N. Tryon St. 704-372-6261.

  • 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)
