You've come to the right place. Athens County is known for an exciting music and eclectic arts scene. From festivals large and small, from theater productions to hot bands in a cozy pub, there's plenty of fun to go around.
The Ohio University Wind Symphony and Symphonic Band provide concertgoers with another exciting evening of music. This concert will feature Jason Roland Smith, OU’s Associate Professor of tuba and euphonium, performing Metallëphônic Remix, a piece for solo tuba and band. The Wind Symphony will also play Shostakovich’s Festive Overture, Gandolfi’s Flourishes and Meditations on a Renaissance Theme, and Richard Wagner’s “Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral” from Lohengrin.
The three-part exhibition Women Artists in the KMA Collection will highlight paintings, prints, and 3-D work made by women artists in the 20th century. Part I will explore the work of women artists who began their career prior to the feminist movement in art in the 1970s. The work included in Part I is for the most part abstract and in the form of paintings, drawings and prints. This exhibition will place these artists within the larger art world context in which they worked, exploring the relationship between gender, art making, and abstraction.
