Bearing an ever-expanding repertoire of, as she puts it, “obscure, lovely and naughty songs from the 1910s and ‘20s and ‘30s,” Janet Klein is a musical archeologist hiding in the body of an F.

Are your children curious? Have they ever wondered how or why something is the way it is? In desperation, you do a quick search on the internet, only to find an answer that even you don’t understand. Science doesn’t have to be confusing or scary…it’s actually fun. In this lively, interactive performance, you can introduce your kids to the magic of science. They will not only be entertained but they will also learn something (shhh, don’t tell them)…and so might you. Come early or stay late and take part in an exciting science project provided by Exxon Mobil volunteers.

Torrance Art Museum
Beyond the Ocean-art from China January 18–March 8, 2014 Torrance Art Museum 3320 Civic Center Drive, Torrance, CA 90503 Exhibition Director: Zhengyao Zuo, Max Presneill Curator: Sijia Chen Artists: Ming Bai, Guangbin Cai, Sijia Chen, Canbo He, Gang Li, Xiaofeng Sun, Qingji Wei, Yi Wu, Jingsong Yang, Zhengyao Zuo Beyond the Ocean-art from China is opening January 18, 2014 at Torrance Art Museum A primary medium of one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world, ink art has historically been a foundation of Chinese art. Since the beginning of the 20th century the dominance of the ink art tradition diminished with the rising popularity of new media and artistic practices adopted from Western Modernist genres. During the past three decades however, the ink art genre has enjoyed a resurgence as contemporary artists rediscovered its unique aesthetic qualities. In addition to employing ink art techniques to portray a wide range of subjects they have experimented with new mediums and in the process of their exploration the artists spawned a new style often referred to in China as “experimental ink art.” This exhibition features the experimental ink paintings of ten Chinese artists from various backgrounds, including ceramics, oil painting and traditional Chinese painting. During the formative years of their development as contemporary artists a number of them shifted their focus towards ink based works. The approach they are now taking is both an adoption of, and alteration to, the traditional ink art genre. Beyond the Ocean showcases how the artists employed the techniques of ink art in a way that maintains the delicate balance between the preservation of the genre’s historical cultural value with their endeavors to explore and create new expressions of contemporary art. By challenging the traditions of the ink art genre the artists breath new life into its creative use and simultaneously reinterpret its past while shaping its future. Beyond the Ocean is an exchange exhibition project between the Torrance Art Museum (TAM) and the University City Art Museum of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts (UAM). It was conceived as a platform for Chinese and American artists to take their works across the Pacific Ocean and exhibit them in new and foreign settings, ultimately allowing the two communities to communicate with each other through their work. The TAM exhibition features the ink art of artists from China and the UAM exhibition will feature the works of American contemporary artists

Back by popular demand with a brand new show created in part by kids from Torrance! Story Pirates celebrates creative writing by students from coast to coast in a loud, hilarious musical sketch performed by professional improvisers and musicians. The show is based entirely on stories written by elementary school students, and part of the show is made up on the spot by the kids in the audience. Story Pirates will delight and surprise with puppets, enlivening songs, and outrageous sketches, all the while motivating kids to pick up a pencil and write down their own fantastic adventures. Story plots run the gamut from kung fu ninja babies fighting crime, to flying cats and tickle monsters who rule the world.
