WILLIAMSBURG-The College of William & Mary has a variety of art, dance, and musical show offerings this fall to keep the public entertained.

Now through January 9 at The Muscarelle Museum of Art, guests can take in the exhibition “Shared Ideologies.” This display involves a selection of works by Native American artists from the 1970s and includes paintings and other pieces by artists such as T.C. Cannon, Emmi Whitehorse, Cara Romero, Tom Poolaw, Julia Buffalohead, and others. Some works from the museum’s own Native American collection will also be showcased for the first time as part of the exhibit.

“Forever Marked By The Day” will also run through January 9 at The Muscarelle Museum of Art. The display, Michael Arad’s study for the 9/11 Memorial, 2001, focuses on the World Trade Center site and the architects, artists, designers, and photographers who captured the events before and after the terrorist attacks.

Muscarelle will also offer a free artist talk with William & Mary Asian Centennial Distiniguished Fine Arts Fellow Roberto Jamora on Tuesday, September 28 at 6pm. Jamora is a Filipino-American artist and educator who teaches at William & Mary and the Virginia Commonwealth University. His recent work includes “The Sound of Fate Knocking at the Door 2.”

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
