In 1956, Gage created the Face of Lincoln in clay, based upon and inspired by the remarkable 1860 plaster life mask made of Lincoln by Chicago sculptor, Leonard Volk. It was one of only two face masks ever created of President Abraham Lincoln. Throughout his career, Gage sculpted likenesses of Lincoln in many stages of the president's life, and starred in the 1955 Academy Award winning film, The Face of Lincoln (20 minutes).

Come Hear NC: Pat “Mother Blues” Cohen

Wednesday, 10/21/2020
6:00PM-7:30PM  
Free - Virtual
Join Pat "Mother Blues" Cohen for a special virtual concert as part of CAM's Come Hear NC series, funded by the North Carolina Arts Council and AARP. Since the age of six, Pat was surrounded by music. Her blues classroom was on the porch of her uncle’s house where one played the guitar and the other played the harmonica. Her first professional engagement came in the early 1980’s when she was asked to perform at a local club where she was attending college. For years, Pat sang in New Orleans six nights a week, performing at a wide array of venues including the House of Blues, until Katrina destroyed her home. She relocated to North Carolina and has recently started touring with the Music Maker Blues Revue. During her performances, “Mother Blues” unfurls the tapestry of her life experiences to her audience in soulful words and music. She shares the mettle, pathos and ocean-deep compassion of the famous female blues singers she idolizes—women like Billie Holiday, Koko Taylor and Etta James. This is a virtual concert you truly don't want to miss.
