So it’s almost Valentine’s Day and love is in the air. But love isn’t necessarily a relationship thing, it also figures into how we treat our fellow man, right? It’s with that in mind that I kick off this most loving of holiday columns with a tour stop by the authors of The Faith Club – A Muslim. A Christian. A Jew. Three Women Search for Understanding. A luncheon with the authors, followed by a book signing, will be going down Wednesday at Beth David Synagogue in Greensboro. Later that evening, the authors – Ranya Idliby, Suzanne Oliver and Priscilla Warner – will reconvene for a panel discussion. Tickets to the luncheon cost $18, and a $10 donation is suggested for the panel discussion.
Those of you reading this column seeking suggestions of a sexier kind, fear not. EROS 4, the fourth installment of Lyndon Street Artworks’ erotic art show, is happening on Valentine’s evening. There is a $5 cover charge.
If you’d rather wallow in heartache, head over to the Weatherspoon for a screening of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The film, which explores the nature of love and memory, fits in neatly with both the holiday and the museum’s current exhibit, The Lining of Forgetting.
Also on Valentine’s Day: A performance of The Vagina Monologues by students and faculty in UNCG’s Women’s and Gender Studies Program. The shows runs through Saturday and raises money and awareness for programs dedicated to ending domestic violence.
On Friday and Saturday, the students of Prime Movers will be holding a dance concert at UNCG’s Dance Theater. Tickets are $5 for UNCG students and $12 for general admission.
Over at the Center for Visual Arts in the Cultural Center, they’re soliciting art for an exhibition titled The Greensboro 200. It’ll feature work by more than 200 local artists and coincide with the city’s bicentennial. Call 336.333.7485 for submission guidelines.
You can also register your young ‘un for art camp at the Center for Visual Arts until March 31. Call or e-mail Katie Lank at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
And at School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, the theater season kicks into high gear. William Inge’s Bus Stop opens Thursday and will play through next weekend.
