PROFILES IN COURAGE: Cancer has an interesting effect on people’s outlooks. On the one hand, they feel worse than they’ve ever felt following surgeries and rounds of chemo. But they also can sometimes be filled with more life than ever as they dig down deep to discover strength and purpose.
That definitely seems to be the case with Dallas Symphony Chorus director David Davidson. CBS 11 profiled Davidson as he fought stomach cancer while preparing the chorus for its annual Christmas shows.
“I have noticed the people who stayed courageous and upbeat and positive have done the best with it,” Davidson says in the piece. “And I choose to do that.”
In case you missed it, Davidson discussed the concerts with Think’s Krys Boyd during a recent Scene segment.
THE KING OF POP: Andy Warhol is back in town as The Art Galleries at TCU stages Warhol and the Shared Subject, an exhibit of the artist’s photos and paintings alongside the work of some artists he influenced. The Art Galleries are the recent recipient of the photographs from the Warhol Foundation’s Legacy Program, hence the exhibit.
Mike Gerra of art251 says he was struck most by seeing Warhol’s Polaroids in relation to the finished products and the work of his successors. As the owner of the art251 gallery in Keller, Mike knows his visual art. If you aren’t following his blog, you should.
