The solo exhibition at Grand Central Art Center marks the US premiere of their new body of work, which focuses on the subject of white-collar crimes. The artists draw inspiration from both obscure and popular subjects in the news, on the internet and television. Their primary medium is tape on paper.

spacerThis campy, romantic, darkly funny takeoff on Shakespeare’s The Tempest is a grand theatrical journey with heroes and horrors to rival the best of Hollywood! “Aguirre-Sacasa has written a play that is really more about the power and quite literally about the magic of theater…featuring a monstrous villain, his nasty henchmen, and a team of motley misfits scrambling to save the world.” Washington City Paper

by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa • Directed by Travis Donnelly

spacerKerciu rose to prominence in the art world in 1963 after his solo exhibition at the University of Mississippi. On exhibit was a series of paintings that depicted the Confederate flag surrounded by segregationist slogans. These were a response to the riots going on around him as the institution was attempting to desegregate. Kerciu was arrested, and charges were brought against him for allegedly violating a state law prohibiting desecration of the Confederate flag. This ushered in a brief period of intense media attention, and Kerciu was featured in publications such as Artnews, Artforum, and World Book Encyclopedia. 

The following year Kerciu accepted a teaching post at what is now known as California State University, Fullerton where he taught until his retirement in 2002. Through the years his artistic explorations expanded beyond his original assignment to lead the printmaking department. He was featured as a guest artist in prestigious print houses, such as Tamarind in Los Angeles and the William Hayter Atelier in Paris. He also became interested in working with stained glass and for a time worked almost exclusively with that art form. 

More than a decade after his retirement from teaching and fifty years after his whirlwind introduction into the art world, Kerciu remains committed to his art. His latest series, The Tower, is a body of work that defines three-dimensional forms through the exclusive use of line. It has evolved gradually from paintings featuring the pyramid, which later progressed into sculptural exploration of the pyramid and obelisk, and eventually into his most recent architectural towers. As in all of Kerciu’s work, this latest endeavor stems from his aim to continually artistically challenge himself. His tireless pursuit of innovation in material, form and subject can be witnessed and appreciated in this celebration of the artist’s long and diverse artistic career. This exhibition will take a comprehensive look at more than fifty works including paintings, prints, glasswork and sculpture from all phases of the artist’s development.

spacerThe Fullerton Jazz Big Band and Fullerton Latin Ensemble welcome legendary conga player, salsa singer and bandleader Poncho Sanchez and trombonist/composer Francisco Torres for clinics and a performance in Meng Concert Hall. For more than three decades as a leader and a sideman, conguero Poncho Sanchez has stirred up a fiery stew of straight-ahead jazz, gritty soul music and infectious melodies and rhythms from a variety of Latin American and South American sources. The Grammy winner, who grew up in Norwalk, Calif., was a longtime member of vibraphonist Cal Tjader's band and has worked with such diverse talents as Freddie Hubbard, Tito Puente, Dianne Reeves and Terence Blanchard. Francisco Torres has been an integral part of the sound of Poncho Sanchez's Latin Jazz Band not only as a soloist but also as musical director, arranger and producer. The versatile performer is also a member of Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band. Torres, who has recorded with numerous Latin and jazz greats, has worked extensively as well in TV and film.
