Walton Arts & Ideas Series

What makes the South Southern?

That is the question that will be explored in the 2015-2016 Walton Arts & Ideas Series. This year's series, titled "The Identity of the South," kicks off with a lecture by Dr. Angie Maxwell titled, "The South Vs…Everything: The Evolution of Southern Identity." The series will continue with a lecture by Lecia Brooks, followed by an art exhibition by Aj and Marjorie Williams-Smith. It will also feature concerts by rockabilly musician Sleepy LaBeef and acoustic blues musician Lightnin' Wells, a cooking presentation by regional chef Matt McClure, and lectures by renowned Southern authors Rick Bragg and Peter Guralnick.

And best of all, you can attend all of these fantastic events free of charge.

We hope you'll make plans to join us as we explore The Identity of the South!



The Walton Arts & Ideas Series is made possible through an endowment by the Walton Family Charitable Trust.
