A Sweet February for Arts
Those shiny Mardi Gras beads are the perfect metaphor for the spirit of February in the Sherman Cultural District. One of the busiest months for cultural activity from beginning to end, February's deep winter days are filled with the colors of music, food, performing and visual arts that will warm the heart.
Here's what you can do to chase away the chill:
Enjoy our Gallery Stroll: a self-guided tour of 21 downtown businesses displaying the original works of 38 local artists (and the works are for sale!) from Feb. 10-March 13.
Catch some Comedy: The Sherman Community Players present the hilarious (and slightly naughty) farce Lend Me a Tenor for the first 3 weekends of February. It's a must-see show!!
Meet us for Mardi Gras: The Main Street Sherman Program is hosting the Feb. 22 party! Visit participating downtown merchants, collect beads, and enjoy Cajun-themed food and drinks. Plus, listen to FREE live music at SHERMAN JAZZ MUSEUM 2:00-5:00 p.m. with the Mario Cruz Combo, and live music at OLD IRON POST at 7 p.m.
Savor the Sherman Symphony: That extra leap-year day gives you an evening with the Sherman Symphony at Kidd-Key Auditorium for a performance of Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915 with special guest Molly Fillmore, soprano.
Other options include: Poetry Jams and various workshops at Ghost Town Arts Collective, the SISD Percussion Concert, and talks at the Sherman Museum.
