Music Department will offer virtual concerts in the fall, followed by live in new year

The Music Department has announced that they will not offer in-person concerts until the new year, but beginning in October, the Music department will livestream weekly noon concerts made possible by the Joy S. Shinkoskey Series of Noon Concerts Endowment. And stay tuned: the department is also looking into the possibility of streaming creative performances by student ensembles. 

They hope to resume in-person concerts somewhere between January and June 2021. 

Local galleries reopen in Davis

Do you want to appreciate some art, safely? Several local galleries make that possible without even leaving the neighborhood. 

The local Pence Art Gallery resumed normal hours (Tuesday to Sunday, 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.) as of Wednesday, July 1. All visitors must wear a mask and practice social distancing. On July 10, two new exhibits will premiere: Slice: A Juried Exhibit and David Olivant: Because I Know I Shall Not Know

The John Natsoulas Center for the Arts is open by appointment. Simply call the day you would like to visit to reserve a time. The gallery is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. It is open noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco & 30 Ceramic Sculptors Exhibition is on view through Aug.1. 

Pause,...pay attention

The theme for this week's Manetti Shrem at Home newsletter is "Pay Attention." The museum declares that it is "...time to slow down, hold our gaze and focus on the critical work before us." This practice of paying attention applies to both art appreciation and social justice. Learn about the role of the museum in racial unrest here, explore queer art shows here, and learn how to focus on your surroundings artistically here.
