LIVE at the Museum: Abe Partridge
Sep 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

LIVE is a performance series celebrating home-grown and regional performance art of all genres. From songwriters to gospel singers, poets to musicians, jazz to contemporary dance, MMofA is interested in the rare talents that heat and humidity can inspire. The performance is in Larkins Auditorium.

Thursday, September 20 @ 7 PM

Mobile-native Abe Partridge is often lauded for his gravelly voice reminiscent of Tom Waits and his acoustic guitar strumming that weaves together blues, country, punk, and rock influences. Previous to becoming a musician, Partridge was an evangelical minister and also served in the Air Force, both of which shaped his unique path to becoming a musician and helped him develop his ability to connect with the audience during live performances. Join us for a night spent enjoying Partridge’s poetic lyrics, which tell tales of love, loss, and harassment by the IRS.

The theme of this year’s Museum Day is Women Making History, honoring women in society who are trailblazers in the arts, sciences, innovation and culture, and emboldening others to be pioneers as well.

Mobile Museum of Art (MMofA) includes a permanent collection of close to 10,000 works of fine and decorative arts from America, Asia, and Europe. This collection spans periods from classical antiquity to the present day. MMofA is supported by a unique public/private partnership of city and community support. Its facility is owned by the city of Mobile, and the art collection is privately owned. MMofA’s collection exhibitions Asian Art, NATIVE AMERICAN ART: From the Collection, Our People, Our Places, Our Collection, and Serious Whimsy, Serious Play will be on display as well our special exhibition art:WORK.

Museum Day tickets will be available for download at Smithsonian.com/MuseumDay beginning August 15.
