To honor Raoul Wallenberg (B.S. Arch. '35) on the centenary of his birth, the University of Michigan, in cooperation with the Swedish-Consulate General of Detroit, is hosting an exhibition on the life of this illustrious alumnus. Created by the Swedish Institute for the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the exhibition presents the story of Wallenberg's life including his years in Ann Arbor and the months in Budapest when he helped rescue tens of thousands of Jews during the Holocaust.
Wallenberg's extraordinary moral conviction and valor are an inspiration for the University and its alumni. During the past year this exhibition has traveled to Budapest, New York, Washington DC, Moscow, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Ottawa and Toronto.
For information about arranging guided visits, or for other questions, please contact rwcentennial@umich.edu.

Buddy Miller & Jim Lauderdale: The Ark.

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less

Joint performance, with a full backing band, by these 2 veteran country-folk singer-songwriters whose debut collaboration, Buddy and Jim, is an Americana Radio chart-topping collection of vintage covers and newly written songs paying homage to the long country music tradition of male duet acts. Lauderdale's own songs, which have provided hits for the likes of George Strait and Vince Gill, typically offer an intoxicating blend of Bakersfield backbeat, mountain ache, and edgy romanticism, and Miller, who is also a virtuoso guitarist, is known for acerbic, emotionally cutting alt-country songs. Opening act is Max Gomez, a young Taos (NM) folk-rock singer-songwriter who recently released his debut New West CD, Rule the World.
8 p.m., The Ark, 316 S. Main. Tickets $26 in advance at Herb David Guitar Studio and the Michigan Union Ticket Office (mutotix.com), and at the door. To charge by phone, call 763-TKTS. [map]
