1. Integral City is an arts-led economic development project fostering connectivity and collaboration throughout downtown Greensboro. The project team includes Elsewhere, the United Arts Council of Greater Greensboro, Action Greensboro and North Carolina A&T Universityâ€™s Architectural Engineering Department. This partnership is interested in strengthening grassroots arts leadership in Greensboro, catalyzing redevelopment of Greensboroâ€™s historic urban core and restoring connections to underserved neighborhoods, educational and cultural institutions and the cityâ€™s burgeoning Greenway.
2. Since its inception, Potpourri of Pearls, an art synthpop band from Philadelphia, PA, has been a union of distinctly different artists committed to common goals. Bate, Brody, and Allingham each have separate interests and impressive solo projects which they've pursued in addition to their career together. What unites them is a mutual respect and shared affection for the sexy and strange tradition of synth pop. They see this music as being, by definition, one of activism and hope.
Screening of video work begins at 8pm. The show begins at 9pm.
Free with museum admission.
3. A simultaneous, remote, on-line co-performance by Danai Vlachou and Karen Niemczy presented as a â€˜lunch meetingâ€™ between friends where casual chat on daily issues and the pleasure of food,intertwines with discussions on art, education, politics, economy and its effects on social realities as observed and experienced today, in the US and Greece, as well as Sweden - the country where the two artists met.
The performance pays a tribute to Loui Malleâ€™s 1981 film, â€˜My Dinner with Andreâ€, which incidentally has been parodied by Andy Kaufman in â€˜My breakfast with Blassieâ€™ (1983). Thus the two artists complete the variety of main daily meals, with their addition â€“ the lunch â€“ while enjoying the opportunity to reconnect on-line. At the same time they pose a question to the audience about whether there is in fact a threshold, which divides life from art.
D. Vlachou will be present at the AVAF exhibition space, in Athens Greece while K. Niemczyk will perform on-line at the front stage theater at Elsewhere this Friday, June 7 at 1pm.

Join the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn
for this hilarious new musical about three polygamist pop stars on the hunt for their brother husband in Greensboro, NC. When husband Charles Gregory Howard disappears under suspicious circumstances -- having last been seen singing karaoke at the Q Lounge with his vocal coach, Gerard -- it's up to Sister Gretchen, Sister Fanny and Sister Bunny Catherine to track down their band mate and the father of their seven children. A pride play in its purest form, this 45-minute show lampoons and investigates the institution of marriage as the harmonious sister wives must ultimately accept their husband for who he truly is.

Meet the twinkling lights of our 2013 Southern Constellations program
. Come out on Thursday, June 13 at 7:30pm and meet and greet Southern Constellations Artists-in-Residence, Joey Orr and Wesley Chenault of 'John Q.' Stay for their artist talk at 8:30pm.
John Q is an idea collective whose name references â€œJohn Q. Public.â€ The â€œpublicâ€ is left understood, though the work is considered a kind of public scholarship, and the â€œQâ€ is left hanging to reference the groupâ€™s interest in queer history and politics.
Joey and Welsey will be working on site at Elsewhere from June 5th through June 19th.
7. City is a game of play-pretend that re-imagines the museum as a bustling urban metropol complete with a button currency and all the overhanded and underhanded deals that inflect local politics, business, and culture. Join us as whoever you want for as long as you want. Come in costume or just as you are.
For this episode of City on Friday, June 14, we'll don fanny packs and set out to explore the city with maps and cameras in hand. Marvel at the media tower, appreciate local history at the boardwalk, look for souvenirs, and get your picture taken in front of a famous artwork or two.
Participation in this event is free with $1 museum admission.
