Join us for a special viewing of the renowned Covid Memorial Quilt and meet its creator, a 14-year-old middle-school student from California, Madeleine Fugate. Inspired by stories of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, she began this as a community action school project to recognize and honor all those who have died from COVID-19. Word spread quickly and the project soon garnered huge attention. Individual memorial squares have been sent in from all over the world by friends and families in tribute to a loved one. We'll see hundreds of them stitched together into 16 large panels.
Though short, our time at the exhibit will be memorable. Madeleine and her mother will have travelled across the country to be there. Face masks are required. Admission and parking are free.
After the reception, we can go for dinner at the nearby Grandview Public Market, a casual and fun restaurant with 10 independent food vendors. It's a few blocks away at 1401 Clare Ave.
The Armory Art Center is near downtown West Palm Beach, a little south of Kravis Center and the Palm Beach County Convention Center. A 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, it provides art classes, exhibitions, art salons, lectures and special events throughout the year. It's on the United States National Register of Historic Places.
Our Meetup is sponsored by Wall R Us Painting.
Join us for a special screening of two Hollywood science fiction horror classics plus an exclusive tour of the Universal Studios backlot where the movies were filmed.
The famous 1933 adaptation of H.G. Wells’ "The Invisible Man" stars Claude Rains as a mysterious scientist who discovers a serum that makes him invisible but slowly renders him murderously insane.
Featuring a heartbreaking performance by Lon Chaney Jr. and groundbreaking make-up, "The Wolf Man" tells the story of a cursed man who transforms into a deadly werewolf when the moon is full. Set in a Welsh village, it was released in 1941.
We'll meet at 12:30 p.m. in the theater's Premier Bar & Grill on the right side of the lobby. The movies are in Auditorium 14; they start at 1 and end at 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $12.50 plus an additional $1.75 convenience fee if ordering online. We'll later announce where we'll be sitting.
Afterward, we can go to a nearby casual restaurant to socialize and discuss the films. Our Meetup is sponsored by Walls R Us Painting.
