In the weeks leading up to Modern Art we are lucky to have successfully coerced five unique Modern Artists from our roster to create art installations that fill the Egyptian Theater Window located on the corner of Main and Capitol. Special thanks to artist Tomas Montano for curating, designing and organizing this and to the Egyptian for providing this unusual and inspiring mini gallery space. Come to the window for a sample of what’s brewing at the Modern on May 2nd!
On display now is the work of John Caldwell, mixed-media sculptor
April 5-11: Wil Kirkman, neon sculptor
April 12-18:Katherine Bajenova Grimmett, portrait artist/painter
April 19-25: Erika Sather-Smith, installation artist
April 26-May 4: Tyler James Bush, mixed-media/performance artist

Valentine’s Day! It can be a challenge. You love your sweetie madly; but how to show it on a day so loaded with romantic expectation? A bundle of flowers can’t express just how much you appreciate it when she organizes your stuffed animal collection. A box of chocolates won’t thank her enough for all the times she fed your turtle for you. Before you get Valentine’s Day fatigue and go down in a fiery crash, consider a new, stress-free strategy:
Rent a room at a great price at the Modern Hotel. Then join the talented and creative people from Story Story Night to document your love. They’ll spirit you away to their audio love laboratory and record your story. So testify — that’s right, testify! What made you cross the room to meet her? How did you know he was the one? Stand up and tell your tale of love?
This is a story you can call your own and share with pets, children and in-laws, if you wish. It can be passed down through your family, a testament to your hot romance. You can share it with the world or tuck it away in the catch-all drawer of life.
After your testimony, you and your flame can have your photo taken in our Valentine’s Day photobooth—we promise no hearts or stuffed bears, just an image to remember for a lifetime. Your parting gift is a photo and an MP3 of your own love story, starring you and your cupcake. Then retire to your room for frolic, snacks or sleep — your choice. What joy!
