Night Light: Gallery Night & Listening in the Dark

Night Light: Gallery Night & Listening in the Dark

Bubbler, Central Library
05/05/2017
6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Joining Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and the Madison art community, we're excited to once again participate in the long-time tradition of Gallery Night.

The Diane Endres Ballweg Art Gallery on the 3rd floor will feature Together With, a collaborative show curated by Young Space. Together With is an exploration of duality, specifically addressing the so-called middle distance between two extremes. The premise of the exhibition was an artistic and geographic exchange, taking place both in Denver, CO, and Madison, WI, in order for artists in the Denver-based artist collective Hyperlink to engage with artists in other parts of the country and vice versa. Whether Denver and Madison are considered West or Midwest, they are both situated within the vast expanse between, and apart from, the two major American art hubs of Los Angeles and New York. Together With draws artists and their work from both coasts while emphasizing the Midwest as a meeting place, a middle ground.

All other floors of Central Library will showcase a variety of artwork including video art, a multi-floor installation, a mixed media mural, live music and much more*! Featured artists include Thomas Hellstrom, Justus Roe, and Katarina Riesing.

Additionally, as a part of a week-long exploration called Library as Retreat Space, the Bubbler Room will hold Listening in the Dark. This exploration of sound and mind will allow you to zoom in on the music by blocking out sight, movement and all other sounds. Venture into the Bubbler Room, sit or lie down, relax, and allow yourself the time to embrace the music styling of CHANTS (and friends).

*Share the Word is a gathering of Madison area poets, writers, spoken word performers, hip hop artists and storytellers, as well as writing organizations and media and arts supporters. This event is happening from 5-7:30pm in Room 301 and has been organized by Library Takeover planning team including: Oscar Mireles, Robert "Dz" Franklin, Diana Gonzalez, Joseph Phelps, and Zora Beach.

*TAROT DECKS will be available on 5/5 for purchase with cash/check, learn more here: madisonbubbler.org/bubblertarot

LOTS to explore on May 5, can't wait to see you there!

Windy Tales -- Anime at Hawthorne

Windy Tales -- Anime at Hawthorne

Hawthorne Library
05/05/2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

As half of her school's very small digital camera club, Nao Ueshima is obsessed with taking photos. What's a bit unusual, however, is her favorite choice of subject: the sky. Unfortunately, when you spend all of your time looking up in the air, sometimes you lose track of where your feet are headed. As a result, some very unusual things start to happen to Nao.

Discovering a cat on top of her favorite rooftop one day, Nao is startled when it suddenly flies away on the wind. Flies, not falls! Even more startling, however, is what happens when Nao falls off the roof herself! Instead of being killed or hurt, Nao makes the most remarkable discovery: there are people who know how to control the flow of the wind - and one of them is one of her teachers! Suddenly school becomes much more interesting as Nao and her friends learn the secrets of everything from Air to Zephyr, and in between they'll also discover a lot about themselves as well.
