Western Carolina University held the “Darrah Carr Irish Dance” on Thursday, March 10 in the Bardo Arts Center. “Darrah Carr” is a team of dancers that mixes traditional Irish step dancing with a unique take on contemporary tap dancing.

The performance started out with the basic Irish step dancing everyone is likely familiar with and as the performance progressed it became more intricate and intimate with its delivery. There were even humorous moments in the dances,giving what could be a typical tap dance some flavor.

From January 25 to March 25, an exhibition of artwork by renowned Cherokee sculptor John Julius Wilnoty was on display in Western Carolina University’s Fine Art Museum. The reception for the exhibit was held on March 17.

The exhibit was entitled “In Solitude and Mystery,” which the museum curator, Anna Fariello, said was named in order to “present this man.” According to Fariello, Wilnoty kept to himself and had an essence of mystery about him, ideas she collected from studying his work and the Cherokee people.
