first_imgToday, the Brooklyn Museum announced that it will be the final stop for the critically acclaimed exhibition, David Bowie, which will run at the museum from March 2nd to July 15th, 2018. The exhibit, which was organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and curated by Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh from the museum’s Department of Theatre and Performance, is a retrospective on the expansive five-decade career of David Bowie, focusing on the creative process of one of the influential and innovative musicians during the last century.‘Celebrating David Bowie’ Taps Bowie’s Frequent Collaborators For 2018 TourThe exhibit contains over three hundred objects, including never-before-seen objects and exclusive works, related to David Bowie from his time as a teenager through to his death in 2016. For example, one can expect to see handwritten lyrics, original costumes, photography, set designs, album artwork, and rare performance material within the David Bowie exhibit. Together, these pieces create an immersive journey for viewers that outline Bowie’s work and influences using theatrical scene-setting, animation and video, and an advanced audio experience created in partnership by Sennheiser.The exhibition also explores Bowie’s massive list of collaborations during his long-spanning career, looking at his work with those in the fields of fashion, theater, sound, art, film, sound, and graphics. It also contains over sixty costumes, including iconic pieces, such as the  bodysuits (1972) designed by Freddie Burretti; familiar artwork, such as set designs, photographs, album artwork, and cover proofs; and video from films and live performances.Listen To David Bowie Rock “Suffragette City” Live In ’78 On This New TrackAs Victoria Broackes, curator and creator of the exhibit notes, “Since left the V&A, London in August 2013, nearly 1.8 million visitors have flocked to see the exhibition as it has travelled around the world, a testament to Bowie’s depth, breadth and worldwide reach and the public’s interest in the processes of creation behind such a uniquely influential performer. Bowie himself left England in 1974 to eventually settle in America, so we could not be more delighted that the final leg of the tour brings the show back to New York, where Bowie made his home.”David Bowie at the Brooklyn Museum will be a timed ticketed exhibition, with tickets on sale on Wednesday, November 15th, with the cost of adults starting at $35 and upwards.

first_imgThe Lions are open to picking a quarterback in the first round.Detroit holds the No. 8 selection in the 2019 NFL Draft and general manager Bob Quinn said Monday the team isn’t ruling out selecting a signal caller, despite having veteran Matthew Stafford on its roster. “In previous years, at least my last couple years here, we’ve drafted anywhere from 16 to 22, I believe,” Quinn said, via The Detroit News. “It’s a little bit different for us this year. There’s a few more players that are going to be available.“If there’s a quarterback out there that we deem could help us this year or in the future, we’ll never close the door on that.” Related News The top quarterbacks in this year’s class include Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, Duke’s Daniel Jones and Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray. Quinn said Detroit will “consider any position in the draft at any point in time.””We’re in a position now with the eighth overall pick that the whole draft board is really wide open to us,” Quinn said. “We’re not going to really eliminate any prospects.” Stafford completed 66.1 percent of his passes and threw for 21 touchdowns, along with 11 interceptions, in 16 games for Detroit this season.The Lions finished 2018 with a 6-10 record and missed the playoffs for a second straight season.

first_imgThe head of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN), Commissioner Lemuel Reeves, Monday, April 14, traveled to Lofa County to visit “every functioning border,” in that county.Speaking to our reporter in an exclusive interview at his BIN office last Tuesday, April 8, Commissioner Reeves explained that they were working closely with the Ministry of Health & Social Welfare to protect the public; especially around the border regions where the current Ebola virus outbreak in the country began.According to him, “there will be two border visitation teams; one will leave for the Southeastern region, and I will take the other team to Lofa where we will inspect those borders and come up with recommendations for the Health Ministry in the fight against this [Ebola] virus.”He expressed his opinion that closing the borders would not solve the problem of the virus being spread and added “We are working with the MOH and our other partners to protect the country against the spread of the virus while keeping the borders safe.”Mr. Reeves said BIN officers at various borders have received protective gear from the Health Ministry.He said that the country’s borders were very porous, with an unofficial estimate of over 130 illegal pathways being used by people from neighboring countries.“The visits to the various borders in the region are important because we need to know what is happening in those areas and what major things we can work on to stop the Ebola virus from spreading,” The Commissioner explained.According to him, BIN has been working closely with chiefs, villagers, and other community residents to protect the unofficial routes of entry into the country. He said that some villagers have been able to notify officers at the borders about illegal crossings taking place. As a result of this, measures have been put in place to watch the borders effectively.The Commissioner commended all of BIN’s partners, including the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). He also commended the GoL, through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, for ensuring that BIN is capacitated to protect the borders of Liberia and its people.“We have a total of 176 borders guarded by Liberian security personnel. Last year only 36 were fully operational, and we added an additional nine to increase it to 45. We are making sure we add 15 every year so the number will be gradually increased by 2017,” he stated.Commissioner Reeves said the BIN was low on vehicles to run its many operations on the borders of the country.“We managed to get some bikes through the office of the Vice President of Liberia, Joseph N. Boakai, in 2010. These vehicles are no longer in good condition, and we still have to carry out regular border patrols to ensure the best protection for the nation,” he concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
