Girl With a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis
June 23–September 29
Girl With a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis will mark the first time Johannes Vermeer's iconic painting will be seen in the Southeast.
The painting headlines the exhibition, which highlights the artistic genius of Dutch Golden Age painters, including Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Frans Hals and Jan Steen, through the presentation of more than 35 exceptional works.
A coming of age story about a different kind of boy. Pharus’s confidence, charisma, clarity of purpose, and talent belie the struggle he endures at the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys. His differences raise the ire of his classmates who lash out with slurs tinged with more than a little jealousy. His reactions land him in hot water with an administration that thinks Pharus is a problem but won’t acknowledge Pharus’s problem.
But then there’s the music – gospel music at Drew is a tradition as old as the school itself, and that tradition is embodied in its vaunted choir. The choir gives Pharus some common ground, and it’s where he can stand out and be different without fear – because he’s the best.
