See How They Run at the Vero Beach Theatre Guild

Held over through April 3rd.  So swift is the action, so involved the situations, so rib-tickling the plot in this London and Broadway hit that at its finish audiences are left as exhausted from laughter as though they had run a foot race. Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress (he is now stationed with the Air Force in England), a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who “touches alcohol for the first time in her life,” four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which (for disguised as one is an escaped prisoner), and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings-on and the trumped up stories they tell him.

The A.E. Backus Museum and Gallery presents Tuned to the Spirit: Photographs from the Sacred Steel Community On view through May 8

The Museum is honored to be debuting the traveling exhibition that will highlight more than twenty years of “Sacred Steel” photography, which has a notable Fort Pierce connection.

In the late 1930s, two related African American Holiness-Pentecostal churches began incorporating a novel, modern instrument into worship services – the electric steel guitar. The expressive and energetic music rendered on the instrument soon became essential to the spirited worship services. Today, with more than fifty congregations throughout the state, Florida is a stronghold for the House of God and Church of the Living God, where musicians have passed down the unique musical tradition known as “sacred steel” for generations. Two of these churches (House of God No. 1 and House of God No. 2) are located in the City of Fort Pierce.

House of God, Pompano Beach by Robert L. Stone

In three decades of work, photographer and folklorist Robert L. Stone has documented this music and church culture through images (photography, video) and audio recording. Tuned to the Spirit presents a selection of more than thirty soulful images, augmented by music performances accessed in the exhibition through QR Codes on visitors’ mobile devices. Stone’s 2003 documentary film “Sacred Steel: The Steel Guitar Tradition of the House of God Churches” will also be available to see historic footage of these important musicians.

Vero Beach Museum of Art presents Vero Collects: Hidden Treasures Revealed

The Museum’s third curated collection exhibition, representing more than 50 local collectors and over 100 artworks. On view through May 15.  The exhibition is filled with treasures from local collections that are enjoyed in private residences, and now revealed in the public setting of an art museum. The show offers a rare glimpse into artworks seen for the first time at the VBMA, where we can discover major artworks collected in Vero Beach homes. It is a public view into the private world of collecting.  A catalogue accompanies the exhibition and is available for purchase in the Museum Store.
