Today's Events: 6.17.11


June 17th, when Mughal emperor Shah Jahan I’s wife died during childbirth, leaving him to spend the next seventeen years building her mausoleum, aka the Taj Mahal (1631), when French explorers Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet reached the Mississippi and were the first to make a detailed account of the river’s course (1673), the Revolutionary War’s Battle of Bunker Hill (1775), when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against allowing the reciting of Bible verses and the Lord’s Prayer in public schools in Abington School District v. Schempp (1963), when Nixon  declared the (joke of a) War on Drugs (1971), when five operatives were arrested for something called, um, Watergate (1972), and when O.J. Simpson was arrested for the alleged murdering of his wife and her friend Ronald Goldman (1994)


Fair Folks, A Goat & An American Memory


No it’s not second Saturday. It’s not even Saturday. Yet, there is art to be seen. Tonight, from 7-10 p.m., five artists come together for An American Memory, a group exhibition guest curated by Michael Martin at Chartres' Fair Folks and a Goat. The works and mediums vary, but, thematically, all of the works reflect on the splendor found in a city’s gradual decay - what corrodes, what remains, and the new visual aesthetic that takes hold of its surroundings as a result.
