November 18….The Life and Art of David Hockney with Christian Conrad - David Hockney born 1937. One of the premier artists of the British Pop Art movement, Hockney’s art continues to reflect modern ideas and technology. Living partially in Southern California, Hockney’s most famous images show the suburban lifestyle of backyard pools and sunny blue skies. David Hockney was one of the first major artists to use an iPad as a method of creating images. With a constantly changing style, David Hockney is also famous for his investigations into the historic use of the Camera Obscura. His most recent investigation involves the ideas of “reverse perspective,” an idea originated by Russian mathematician Pavel Florensky. Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation. This event is free to the public. Join us for coffee and donuts! ! Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts, 511 Ave K; 11:30 a.m.- 1 p.m.

November 18….The Reunion - Beatles Fantasy Tribute - National Touring Act - In 1967, The Beatles released their landmark LP, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” which became the soundtrack for “The Summer Of Love” that very same year. It was a year that was a microcosm for the peace and love generation, hippies and flower children who’s Beatles supplied mantra was simple; “All You Need Is Love.” Now, 50 years later, The Beatles are back together. Never mind that two of their members are no longer alive. The Reunion Beatles - Fantasy Tribute is the rock and roll reunion of all time. This is the concert that never was. In this show, John, Paul George & Ringo are back together and celebrating with a concert that features all of their most memorable songs and their solo hits too. Formed in the Bay Area in 2010, The Reunion Beatles have performed for delighted audiences of all ages around the world. Lauded for their musicianship and ability to “channel” the four individuals who made such a massive impact in the ’60s and ever since. This show is decidedly different. Yes, John & George have passed on. But, what if they hadn’t? Would The Beatles have gotten back together again? And if they did, what would that concert have been like? This production answers that question. It is the concert we believe they would have done, filled with stories, laughter and of course, those incredible, timeless songs that are so well loved. Don't miss this highly-acclaimed national touring act - appearing at the historic Cactus Theater.Ticket information: Reserved first row floor $45; next 4 rows $35; remainder of floor $30; Reserved balcony $25; Box seats $60 (box ticket includes concessions).
