Faces of Vietnam
The “Faces of Vietnam” exhibit is underway through February at the Alabama Center for the Arts in Decatur. Curated by attorney Stephen Humphreys from his travels throughout Vietnam, most of the collection is from the post ??i M?i (Reform) era of the 1990s. Through the exhibit, Humphreys strives to answer the question: “What is the real Vietnam, and what is the face it shows the world?” The exhibit will include works from leading contemporary Vietnamese artists of the post-reform period in traditional and contemporary media, including oil paintings, lacquer and woodblock prints. Take part in a reception and gallery talk with Humphreys on Tuesday, Nov.16 at 5 p.m. at the Alabama Center for the Arts. See the exhibit Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to noon. The showing will close for winter break from Dec. 13-Jan. 3.

MFA Dance Concert
The MFA Dance Concert is Nov.17-19 in the Dance Theatre on the University of Alabama campus. The concert is a medium for graduate students to exhibit and develop research for their Capstone projects, while providing an opportunity to showcase their choreographic voices. The dance revolves around each choreographer’s life experiences while challenging audiences to view each piece through a lens that may be unfamiliar to their own experiences. While patrons should focus on the technique and artistry, they are asked to keep an open mind and look beyond the physicality of each piece. Get tickets at the Rowand-Johnson Hall ticket office, by phone at 205-348-3400 or online. More information about the MFA Dance Concert and other shows during the current season of the UA Theatre and Dance Department can be found at
