The A List: February Events in Augusta's River Region
Tactic III : Stop by Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art for the third iteration of a three-part traveling exhibition which highlights the work of 24 artists. Each represent a growing shift in material sensibility in the field of contemporary ceramics. This shift is evident through the use of 3D ceramic printing, the integration of mixed media and post-firing assembly, and the use of technology typically unassociated with the making of ceramic artwork. These non-clay components and unconventional approaches to manipulating clay - compositionally and conceptually - support the ceramic elements and heighten the impact of the work.
Seven Wonders : Travel back thousands of years in time and witness spectacular marvels of the ancient world at the Dupont Planetarium. Explore the Great Pyramid, stand in the shadow of the towering Colossus and experience the rest of the world's phenomenal seven wonders as you investigate the social forces and technologies leading to the creation of these incredible antiquities.
Lungs : Le Chat Noir brings to the stage a smart and funny drama following a couple through the surprising lifecycle of their relationship as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the terrible pain that you can only cause the people you love.
Sam Bush : The Father of Newgrass and King of Telluride, mandolin virtuoso Sam Bush returns to rock the Imperial Theatre as part of the Morris Museum's Budweiser True Music Southern Soul & Song Series.

Stay for the entire two hours or get in a quick 30 minutes and meet some really cool people in the process. Then, grab something from Humanitree's breakfast menu or get a juice shot or energy bar.
