June 2017: Events

  • Friday Film: Bombs to Birds

    7 p.m.–
    The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House

    Bombs To Birds, a documentary by veteran photojournalist Richard Michael Pruitt, explores the rich history of the Caddo Lake National Wildlife Refuge, 7,000 acres set aside to protect one of the highest quality old-growth bottom land hardwood forests in the southeastern United States and the wildlife that inhabit it. Home to a munition plant from 1941 to 1994, the EPA designated the land as a Superfund site in 1990. The Army's Base Realignment and Closure Division was tasked with cleaning the Refuge's acreage in 2000. Today, little progress has been made to clean the original fouled acres and they remain closed to the public. Community inquiries about the status of the cleanup and Freedom of Information request have gone unanswered.

    Admission is free.

  • Blueberry Festival - Arts Activities

    8 a.m.–4 p.m.
    The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House

    The Friends of the Visual Arts and the SFA School of Theatre will have booths outside the Cole Art Center during the 28th Annual Texas Blueberry Festival.

    The short documentary, "Found Footage: Rediscovering Nacogdoches," will be shown inside at 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m.

    "Found Footage" features scenes of Nacogdoches people and businesses in 1938 documented on film. The Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts and Humanities Texas, in association with the Charles and Lois Marie Bright Foundation, championed the effort to restore the forgotten 16mm film, labeled "Nacogdoches 1938." Discovered at Nacogdoches High School in 1967 but forgotten until a few years ago, the film was digitally restored and viewed in 2014 for the first time in 70 years.

    Admission is free.
