Happy Super Bowl Weekend! Whether or not you are a football fan, there is a lot to do this weekend. So, grab a friend or two and check out these events.
The Ackland Art Museum presents: More Love: Art, Politics, and Sharing since the 1990s. The exhibit includes nearly 50 works of art that actively engage with love and the many ways it can be expressed through beauty, emotion, humor, texts, elaborate craft, sound environments, and interactive projects. For each of the artists in the exhibition, love is a significant tool or strategy that constitutes a creative practice built on generosity, inclusiveness, sharing, and questioning. These artists invite, enact, and reflect on multiple modes of expression, among them through touch, gifts, acts of service, and language.
