Erik ReeL Showing at Butler Institute of American Art
4 June 2018-- Society805.com's own Art and Cultural contributing editor, Erik ReeL, has been selected to exhibit in the Butler Institute of American Art's 2018 midyear show. The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, was the first museum in the world dedicated solely to American Art and has a long and venerable history of showing the best in American Art since 1919. The exhibition will run from 1 July to 26 August 2018. ReeL also exhibited just last year in an international group exhibition at the CICA Museum in Seoul, South Korea.
Highlights of the festival include:
Performances by the members of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra (MCO) in its first extended United States residency. Founded in 1997, the Berlin-based MCO defines itself as “a free and international ensemble, dedicated to creating and sharing exceptional experiences in classical music. With members spanning 20 different countries, the MCO works as a nomadic collective of passionate musicians uniting for specific projects in Europe and across the world.
Ojai Music Festival Announces 2018 Schedule
Here in the 805 we have some of the most world-renown arts festivals in the United States. In Santa Barbara we have the annual Santa Barbara Film Festival, which has grown into a major force in the international film world, now being the closest thing to the Cannes Film Festival in the Western Hemisphere. Others try to claim this title of course, but Santa Barbara’s Film Festival walks its talk. In the realm of music, and more precisely New Music, the Ojai Music Festival has garnered a world-wide reputation unique to itself.
Running for four days [this year the Ojai Music Festival will run from Thursday 7 June through Sunday 10 June 2018, at various venues] the festival continues to bring the leading edge of musical composition and performance to our ears.
