Portrait of Marilyn Monroe

Looking Back: Series Work by Susan Darwin

September 3 through October 11, 2019

Regis alumna (’91) Susan Darwin’s paintings are inspired reflections of nature and humanity. Her expressive portraiture and transcendent landscapes are at once abstract and yet familiar, created through a distinctive process she has described as intense and compressed. This exhibit chronicles Darwin’s evolution of process with series work spanning her career.

Wednesday, September 18th at 7 p.m. | Casey Theatre

From musical theatre greats, Stephen Schwartz and John Caird, comes a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith... not to mention centuries of unresolved family business! An expansive and ambitious musical that covers the themes of family, love, creation, imagination, forgiveness and betrayal.

Adam, Eve, Noah and the "Father" who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet, but inspiring, message: that "the hardest part of love... is letting go."

Colorful painting of drums and the "Mardi Gras Indians"

Mardi Gras Indians and Other Works by Robert Freeman    

February 3 through March 20, 2020

Many consider the Mardi Gras Indians, or Black Indians, to be the true heartbeat of New Orleans. Although primarily associated with Mardi Gras, the Black Indians also exist outside of that celebration, and have a distinct culture with rituals going back centuries. Artist Robert Freeman captures the vibrancy of the people and traditions that transform the streets of New Orleans in performances that harken from Africa and the original tribes of America.
