Waterloo, IA – The Waterloo Center for the Arts and UNI Department of Art present Vertigo TX Performance Art Series on Nov. 14th and 15th at the WCA. This fascinating and popular series expands the traditional definition of art using sound, video, and the human body.

This year’s Vertigo is a Texas Invasion featuring three artists who currently reside in San Antonio. Admission is free and boots and hats are welcome!

UNI alumna and one of the funniest Feminists you’ll ever hope to meet, Libby Rowe, will perform on Nov. 14th at 7pm. Rowe returns to Iowa with her ongoing series of works entitled Pink exploring the sociological, physiological and psychological aspects of femininity.

Two artists, Jimmy James Canales and Mat Kubo, will perform on Nov. 15th starting at 6pm.

The Hispanic cultural evolution, urbanized development vs. wilderness pockets, survival field manuals and all- encompassing technologies, specifically the Internet, are major influences for Jimmy James Canales and his work. Hawaii native Mat Kubo will work with most any material that can be manipulated, tangible or nontangible. His work runs the spectrum from intense investigations in sound to public campaigns that aim to explore relations with his community.
