David A. Lang - Kinetic Sculpture
Hammond Hall, Hammond Hall Art Gallery
FROM THE ARTIST: For the last several years my sculptural work has become largely kinetic and interactive. It is often witty, profound and provocative. Much of it seems to exist in the realm of the unlikely. These days, my mind is in a whirl, trying to understand how to make very complicated things appear to be smooth, slow and coordinated.

The Sweet Remains
8:00 PM-10:00 PM Hammond Hall, Falcon Hub - $28 adults | $25 alumni, seniors & staff | $5 students
A trio of gifted and charismatic singer/songwriters, Rich Price, Greg Naughton, and Brian Chartrand each contribute to the writing and three-part harmonies that define The Sweet Remains sound and simply make your ears smile.
Driven by strong lyrical and melodic writing, their songs easily appeal to fans of modern folk-rockers like Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne and John Mayer. However, it is their lush harmonies that distinguish TSR and harken back to super-groups like Crosby, Stills and Nash, the Eagles, and Simon & Garfunkel.
