    Arbor Day at Tuten Park

    Saturday Jan 19
    9 am - 12 pm

    Tuten Park

    The City of Lake Charles is planning an Arbor Day event at Tuten Park that will feature local environmental and nature-focused organizations as well as free trees for guests to take home. The annual event will take place from 9 am – noon on Saturday, January 19. 

    The park will give native seedlings — river birches, red maples, wax myrtles, and mayhaw — on a first-come, first-served basis. The Coastal Plain Conservancy is donating the trees. Local conservation organizations, garden clubs, and area student organizations will be among those with booths at the event. 

    The public is encouraged to attend this free event, learn about conservation efforts happening across Southwest Louisiana, and plant a free tree at home. 

    Arbor Day was founded in 1872 to celebrate planting trees and the ecosystem services that trees provide to communities. Trees reduce the energy needed to cool homes in the summer, increase the value of homes, reduce the impact of storm water, and provide habitat for wildlife. 

    Tuten Park was donated to the city to be a bird, native flower and tree sanctuary for the enjoyment and education of area youth. For more information about the park, visit www.cityoflakecharles.com/tutenpark.

    Historic City Hall: Feng Shui

    Historic 1911 City Hall

    Please join us for a free gallery talk on 'Fusui: The Japanese Art of Feng Shui' at 1911 City Hall Arts and Cultural Center on Saturday, January 19 from 1 to 2 p.m. Cheryl Taylor Bowie, a Feng Shui consultant and instructor for nearly twenty years, will lead the talk.
     
    Feng shui is based on the ancient Chinese art of placement used to create harmony in our environment. The practice has become a phenomenon in the west over the last few decades. In Japan, feng shui is called fusui (wind-water). Fusui has had a long history and wielded considerable influence from ancient to contemporary times.
     
    The Gallery Talk will take place amongst the beautiful Contemporary Japanese Ceramics exhibit currently on view in the third floor gallery. All of the works in 'Nature, Tradition & Innovation' are from the private collection of San Diego-based collector Gordon Brodfuehrer. The exhibit will hang through February 9. 
     
    Also on exhibition through March 16 is 'Seen & Unseen,' featuring the work of iconic American photographer, Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976). Cunningham documented everything from the 1950s beat movement to Hollywood big names like Cary Grant.

    Lutcher Presents: Something Rotten

    Friday Jan 25
    7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

    Lutcher Theater

    Each season, Lutcher Managing Director, Lynae Sanford chooses her 'don't miss' show and this year, Something Rotten! is the winner. The show opens at the Lutcher Theater on January 25, 7:30 p.m.
     
    Something Rotten! is a hilariously, funny story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom, two playwrights stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance 'rockstar' Will Shakespeare. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical.
     
    Something Rotten! is a love letter to musical theater and is the perfect show for a die-hard Broadway fan. However, because of its clever story, wit and humor, it’s also the perfect show for all audiences.
     
    With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is an uproarious dose of pure Broadway fun and an irresistible ode to musicals — those dazzling creations that entertain us, inspire us, and remind us that everything’s better with an exclamation point!
     
    Visit lutcher.org or call 409.886.5535 to find out more information about upcoming shows in 2019.
