In any discussion of American food, the South’s brand of home cooking rises to the top as a regionally distinctive tradition, and certainly one of the tastiest. The Chattahoochee Valley has its own proud culinary heritage, which forms the basis of Chattahoochee Cookin’. This exhibition spotlights local food-ways from the perspective of both food producers and consumers, ranging from historic Muscogee (Creek) sofke to contemporary Dinglewood scrambled dogs. Pecans, peanuts, corn, and other crops will be discussed, as well as more sugary delights. The exhibition also spotlights local beverages, with cola drinks featured alongside locally distilled liquor. Technological innovations and agricultural implements designed by local residents are examined, as well as the role of local restaurateurs who produce Columbus culinary specialties. Murals painted for the Georgia Department of Agriculture building in 1956 depict the changing nature of agriculture and how we think about the producers who feed us.

SPAMALOT is a musical comedy “lovingly ripped off” from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Penned by original Monty Python member, Eric Idle, Spamalot is a cheeky parody of King Arthur’s legend. Complete with Knights who say “Ni”, killer rabbits and carts to collect the dead, the play pays homage to its cinematic roots, but it also offers a plethora of brand new favorite moments and hilarious original music. The original 2005 Broadway production was nominated for 14 Tony Awards, winning three—including the Tony Award for Best Musical.

Lyle is the story of a friendly crocodile who turns up in a bathtub in an apartment in New York City's Upper East Side. Lyle becomes good friends with the folks in the building, except for Mr. Grumps, who hates Lyle, parades, people, and pretty much everything. However, when Lyle rescues Mr. Grumps and his cat Loretta from a fire, Mr. Grumps has to apologize for the way he's treated Lyle. In the end, Lyle helps those around him learn that they should not judge other by how different they appear to be, but to love people (and crocodiles) for what they are.
