CHICKASHA --When Juan Granados was a boy, he worked in the fields alongside his parents—cultivating the soil and harvesting the crops to feed people all over the world.
Now, Granados cultivates the soil in a different way, using clay to produce distinctive works of art. Beginning Nov. 13, Granados returns to his roots at the University of Science and Arts for a new exhibition of his works entitled Reflejo.
The ancient Greeks paid homage to the Muses as the source and inspiration for the arts. Daughters of Zeus and born of Mnemosyne, the titan-goddess of Memory, the Muses were said to be the source of the authority wielded by kings and poets alike.
Now, in 2010, three artists have drawn upon that same inspiration as the wellspring for their Senior Exhibition entitled Muse. Featuring the photography of Sarah Castor and Nicole Landers with the drawings of Tabitha Deskin, Muse will run from Nov. 5-26.
A holiday choral concert featuring more than 500 singers will be presented on Dec. 5 at 3 p.m. at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. The concert will be free and open to the public.
The USAO Concert Choir will join in performance with choirs from Grand Elementary, Lincoln Elementary and Chickasha Middle School. Students from grades 1-8 will perform seasonal music in various styles, from popular to classic.
