THEATRE OF THE YOUNG DEBUTS NEW TOURING PRODUCTION: EMU's Theatre of the Young will present "Taking Flight: Tales of Courage" on Friday, March 22, at 7 p.m., in Room 310, in the Student Center.

MOVIE - "IMAGES FROM DETROIT'S CASS CORRIDOR": Directed by Shaun Bangert and Kathryn Brackett Luchs, the movie "Images from Detroit's Cass Corridor," will be shown on Wednesday, March 27, at 5:30 p.m., in the Halle Library Auditorium. In this film, artists share their personal visions by being in geographical proximity to one another, making works that mark an era in Detroit's history that is now regarded as being highly significant. During the late 1960s and through the 1970s, some artists living in Detroit explored alternative, inventive and personal approaches to making art.

The film is a tense, visual montage combining original silent footage with new information that brings to light the mood and art of the time. Artists presented in the movie include John Egner, Steve Foust, Michael Luchs, Nancy Mitchnick, Gordon Newton, Ellen Phelan, Paul Schwarz and Robert Sestok. Original music by Mick Vranich accompanies this illuminating documentary. For more information, contact Greg Tom at gtom@emich.edu or Julie Myers at jmyers@emich.edu.
