Throughout his career, the concept of synthesis has been central to Turri’s work. The source material for “The Longing Ritual” series is culled from cyclical
rituals: walking through Frick Park, the Homewood Cemetery, the neighborhoods of Squirrel Hill, and Point Breeze where he often records (through photography) the memorable visual moments that he experiences with regularity.
The paintings are not traditional landscape paintings; the work is meant to reflect the ever-pervasive presence of the screen and the digital device and its intrusion on the ability for real experience.
Fisher Auditorium, IUP Performing Arts Center
In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened
on Broadway and forever changed the landscape of American theater. Two
decades later, Jonathan Larson’s Rent continues to speak loudly and
defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And
now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to
the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production.
re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, Rent follows an unforgettable year
in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without
selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of
fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us
to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters love.
