Determined to own or to destroy all the artistic treasures of the world, Adolf Hitler led the most comprehensive art theft of all time during World War II as his officers ripped paintings, sculptures, and other significant pieces from homes, galleries, and museums throughout Europe. New York Times bestselling author Robert M. Edsel tells the incredible true story of the Monuments Men, a small group of art experts (not soldiers) assembled by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to risk everything and go behind enemy lines to recover mankind’s greatest artifacts before they were destroyed by the Nazis. The book also inspired a movie directed by George Clooney starring Bill Murray, Matt Damon, and Cate Blanchett that will open on February 7th.
VIP tickets are $125 and include the VIP Cocktail Reception with Robert Edsel, a personalized copy of The Monuments Men, and reserved front row seating. Proceeds support the Fine Arts programs at The Citadel. To purchase, contact Christina Mortti at(843) 953-7477 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This lecture is a part of The Citadel’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences Fine Art Series which brings diverse offerings of visual art, film, music, and drama events to the campus and the Lowcountry.

We can imagine the pitch—it goes like this: See what happens when a food-loving, chic and mindful eater / chef stumbles across a Spartan trailer languishing in decay.
Like a super-cool love child of Ricky Riccardo from “The Long, Long Trailer” and “Heidi,” the restored Spartan now home to The Farmbar captures the enterprising spunk and spirit of Tara Derr Web.
After finding and rescuing the Spartan, Tara envisioned a locavore food truck / picnic. Her labors at her Deux Puces Farm and around the community have proved her culinary style and built excitement for her launch of The Farmbar.
Opening January 24th, The Farmbar will be parked at 1600 Meeting Street and will serve according to Charleston Eater, “from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays with lunch box pick-ups the rest of the weekdays.” All day passes are offered for the opening which include a full day’s worth of culinary delights plus a surcee.
We’re betting this PK alum’s tasty eats will make us all mosey over to her lot for lunch, coffee or just a chew.
Dance, original music and a holiday story. On December 14th & 15th the Charleston Dance Institute will preform the world premiere production of “The Little Match Girl,” in collaboration with Uned!ted and Chamber Music Charleston. Choreography by Jonathan Tabbert and an original score from past Pecha Kucha speaker and emcee Laura Ball.

From our friends at Blue Ion comes the news that they in conjunction with Refresh are sponsoring another amazing event tonight at Blue Ion.
Robert Prioleau notes, “Join us at 6:00 pm today at the Blue Ion studio for a special Friday happy hour as James White, bad-ass designer and owner of Signalnoise Studio, shares amazing work and deep thoughts. James has traveled all the way from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia to CHS and will be talking about pursuing your personal projects and being a design renegade.”
The event is free to all..will include drinks and light chow…and will run until 7:30ish. You can RSVP here to help us get a good head count.

She serves as the artistic director for the UNED!TED concert series and loves playing pipe organ.
Sully Sullivan: Born in Hawaii, lived in California, Texas, Georgia, and now South Carolina. 9.5 times out of 10 I don’t need a ladder. First picked up a camera about 6 years ago and started assisting some of the worlds best photographers in New York, Los Angeles, and Germany. Have recently in the past few years started building my own client base. My ultimate goal is to take over the world, but in the number 2 spot, I dont want to be on top, just under the radar. Everyone always goes after the person who is number 1. I dont know what I would do without my Mom, My friends and Photography (in that order). This is my life, I freakin love it!

Hoot Hoot! The house will be packed, so hopefully you’re going to be one of the lucky ones, because Pecha Kucha 20 is officially sold out.
