The Art of the Brick®
Coming to the Tyler Museum of Art as its first Texas stop on its national tour since 2010, The Art of the Brick®
is a stunning exhibition featuring more than 25 works painstakingly
sculpted out of LEGO® bricks by acclaimed artist Nathan Sawaya.
From Sawaya’s artist statement:
On and off, I intentionally intermix subject matter that is steeped in
heavy sentiment with the lighthearted and whimsical. The purpose of this
is two-fold. I realize families and children are drawn to my art
because of the unique medium in which it was created and I welcome that.
But it is also a necessary break for me to create whimsy in addition to
the construction of the complex human forms.

restaurateur, a good ol’ boy and a political ingénue, walk into a

given rise to more than a decadeʼs worth of fine-tuned, highly
anticipated and wonderfully received music, the Derailers continue to
build the relationship between song, listener and dance floor. Each
album has been a mix of well-crafted original songs and cover songs so
thoughtfully chosen and so representative of the band, fans think they
are as original as the band themselves. Challenged by their fans to
create a sound that mirrors the shuffle of happy boots on a hardwood
floor, the Derailers have fed the hungry dancehall crowds with their
classic country beats and a 60s pop sensibility. Fans continue to show
their appreciation and admiration with requests for encores long after
the last drink has been served.
In terms of sound, the Derailers have gotten smoother with age. As
Hofeldt puts it, “I think we have retained the path we are going for.
But we have certainly grown as players and allowed other influences to
come in.” Their music celebrates the legacies of Buck Owens, George
Jones, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Charlie Rich and the Beatles, while
still being on the edge of todayʼs country music. Hofeldt describes his
view of country music as, “finding out what love really is, versus what
you thought it was when you were a kid.” For all the fans of the
Derailers, love is all you need. www.derailers.com

being single, Gloria meets a nervous but loving man, Rodolpho. He’s
recently divorced and still largely involved in the lives of his ex-wife
and their two daughters. Can Gloria, who’s children are fiercely
independent and whose only real relationship seems to be with her maid,
overlook this gentleman’s problems and find happiness? Paulina Garcia is
so candid in her acting that at times you will be shocked that this is
not a documentary. At times sad and at times happy, but never
melodramatic or hysterical, “Gloria” takes a mature and beautiful
at single life after 50.
Her scenes with her children highlight her role in their lives – she is
free of their dependency. The one scene in which the couple’s children
are together at a birthday party gives the audience so much. Needless to
say, the tension and energy created when Rodolpho comes face to face
with the competitors for her affection is incredible and destructive and
so very, very real.
The film contains some serious sex scenes between two middle aged people
entering old age. Finally, you probably won’t see a more euphoric end
to a film. When Gloria gets up to dance to the disco stormer of the 80s
named after her, you’ll be hard pressed not to join in.

follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college
where controversy breaks out over a popular but offensive black-face
party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the
film explores racial identity in acutely-not-post-racial America while
weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.

short form improv comedy troupe located in Tyler, TX. The group was
started in 2009 by co-founders Aaron Smith and Jamey Whitley. The
troupe’s chemistry and strong following has blown up since and have
performed for Tyler Independent School District, Tyler Junior College,
and Liberty Hall.
A typical Card 53 show consists of eight 3-5 minute sketches or “games”
where the audience will be asked to give a suggestion such as a
location, movie genre, or emotion. The actors will then make everything
up on stage going off their instincts using props and costumes as
needed. Due to the unpredictable nature of the show, the actors strive
very hard to provide a professionally clean show. Usually the
appropriateness could be compared to a PG-13 movie rating. Join us for a
fun date night adventure!

This concert will be a collaboration
with Liberty Hall and The Art of Peace Festival. We are excited to have
Ruthie Foster as our performer. Those who have followed Ruthie Foster’s
eclectic musical history know that she can burn down any stage with her
combustible blend of soul, blues, rock, folk and gospel. Ruthie’s
astonishing voice has taken her on an amazing ride. She came from humble
church choir beginnings in rural Texas, followed by a tour of duty with
the U.S. Navy Band, and ended up in Austin, Texas. Ruthie’s list of
achievements include “Best Female Vocalist” in 2007, 2008 and 2013 from
the Austin Music Awards, a 2012 and 2009 Grammy nomination for “Best
Contemporary Blues Album”, the 2010 Living Blues Music Award Critic’s
Poll for “Female Blues Artist of the Year” and recent Blues Music Award
wins for 2010 “Best Contemporary” and “Best Traditional Blues Female
Artist of the Year”.
Foster’s newest release, “Promise of a
Brand New Day,” produced by Meshell Ndegeocello,has been honored by the
National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) with her third
straight GRAMMY nomination for 2015 “Best Blues Album”.
Opening for Ruthie will be Ramoth-Gilead
(Ray-Moth, Gil-EE-ad). Raymoth became interested in music at Van Jr.
High school and played the tuba. After transferring to John Tyler High
School in the 11th grade, Ramoth joined the orchestra and quickly
learned to play cello and double bass. Later, Ramoth picked up a few
other instruments, required courses, and a deeper respect for music and
musicians of various genres. He graduated from Texas College with a B.S.
in Music Education, but it wasn’t until after college that he realized
his God-given gift to write songs was something unique that he couldn’t
have learned from any institution. Ramoth taught himself guitar in a
matter of months and traveled the U.S. with his songs and a new dream
— to make a significant contribution to the music world with his own
Ramoth-Gilead (the really bad) currently performs all over the
Ark-La-Tex. Ramoth’s 2007 debut album, ATTRACTING A CROWD, is a live
recorded performance which gives the listener an opportunity to hear why
so many people are attracted to his clever way with words and his
unique guitar style. For new music and updates, find him on
