18th Annual Art and Souls Masquerade Ball: Time Travel Revelry

18th Annual Art and Souls Masquerade Ball: Time Travel Revelry

Cotuit Center for the Arts will hold its 18th Annual Art and Souls Masquerade Ball, Time Travel Revelry, on Saturday, October 27, at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $10.

Time Travel is the theme of this year’s horrifyingly fun Halloween dance party. There will be a DJ, dancing, time-travel-themed decorations, and “bone-chilling” refreshments, and, if past Art and Souls Balls are any indication, a multitude of hilarious, frightening, and delightfully creative costumes.

“This is a wide-open category,” said Michelle law, coordinator of the ball and a member of CCftA’s curatorial committee. “Come as a time traveler, a time machine, or anyone from any period in history, past or future—from a sweet medieval princess to a 25th-century avenging alien. I’m always excited to see how people interpret the theme—they do such imaginative things.”

Law has put a link to a list of time travel books and movies on the Center’s Facebook page and website. “There is a huge variety of books and movies to inspire party-goers,” said Law, “from classics like Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” Twain’s “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court,” and H.G. Wells’ “The Time Machine,” to contemporary movies like “The Planet of the Apes,” “Groundhog Day,” “Time after Time,” “Midnight in Paris,” and “Back to the Future,” there is something to inspire everyone. And, of course, people are always encouraged to put their own spin on the theme.”

Many attendees make their own costumes, from the very simple to the intricately crafted. Couples and groups are encouraged to develop themed costumes.

“But, you don’t have to have an elaborate or handmade costume to have fun,” said Law. “A mask or make-up will get you into the party mood too.”

Law is happy to give costume hints. She says that many people find inexpensive costume materials at vintage stores and consignment shops. “Do take into account safety considerations,” she said. “Make sure the costume does not restrict your movement or your vision.”

There will be prizes for Funniest, Scariest, Group, and Best Time Travel-themed costumes.

Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit. For more information, visit artsonthecape.org or call 508-428-0669.

THE IRISH WAR OF INDEPENDENCE 1919-1921,

THE IRISH WAR OF INDEPENDENCE 1919-1921,

$70.00 - Member

$75.00 - Non-Member

Four Wednesdays, beginning September 11
from 7:15-8:15pm

The execution of the leaders of the 1916 Rebellion changed the political situation in Ireland forever. The momentum from the Rising brought huge political developments in 1917 and 1918 culminating with the overwhelming victory of Sinn Fein in the 1918 election on a platform of separation from Britain and the setting up of an Irish Parliament.

In January 1919 the first Dail Eireann met and approved a provisional constitution for an Irish Republic. The British refused to recognize the Irish Republic and the Irish War of Independence began that same day.

There were three phases to the war. The first phase involved attacks against British police and army personnel, and British institutions in Ireland. Phase two is often referred to as the "Tan War" as the county was flooded with British troops referred to as the Black and Tans. The third phase is remembered as the period when the IRA 'flying squads' made devastating attacks against the British which resulted in Truce talks and eventually a Treaty. The course will include audio visual materials. All students will receive a PowerPoint presentation for each class.

This class meets in the Photography & Digital Arts Studio on the lower level of the Education Wing.

Bring notebook and pen.
