Cameron Art Museum Presents A Centennial Celebration honoring the Life and Legacy of Claude Howell in ClaudeLIVE!
Sat., Mar. 21, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.

Wilmington, NC— In honor of the life and legacy of local artist and native Wilmingtonian, Claude Howell the Cameron Art Museum is presenting a centennial celebration, ClaudeLIVE!, on Sat., Mar. 21, 2015 from 7:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Howell’s artwork will be seen in a new light as interpreted through contemporary multimedia, theatrical performance, music and dance. Additional details listed below.
Claude Howell (1915-1997) was, by any measure, a fixture in the life of Wilmington, North Carolina. But he was also a passionate force that left his mark imprinting the arts into the fabric of the city and the state and accelerating the discussion on the importance of the arts for everyone. And in his own art, Howell unfolded the social strata of southeastern North Carolina and asked friends and colleagues to look, to see inconspicuous folk around them--the laborers, the fishermen, the African-Americans living their lives in the rural South, trapped by circumstance. Howell chose to document their lives through his artwork and allowed the viewer to see the unvarnished South. During the first part of his life, Howell worked for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad as a stenographer.
In 1953 Dr. William Randall, the president of Wilmington College, currently the University of North Carolina Wilmington, approached Howell to start an art department at the College. Howell exclaimed, “I don’t know how.” Randall assured, “Do you know anything about art?” Howell responded, “Well, I think I do.” Then Randall said, “Then teach what you know.” Thus began a long teaching career. When he began teaching the school was a two-year college, later it became a four-year institution. Howell shaped and helped grow the program during his tenure.
Claude Howell also wrote meticulous journals chronicling his experiences and travels for more than sixty years. Additionally, he demonstrated his leadership as a preservationist and philanthropist.
ABOUT THE EVENT ClaudeLIVE! As an artist, Claude was fascinated by the luminosity of color and light and how the human eye experiences the two. This evening of celebration highlights his artwork by interpreting it through contemporary multimedia, theatrical performance, music and dance. As an homage to Howell’s time in Europe a recreated Parisian cabaret showcasing performances by local artists will be presented in the CAM courtyard.  The food for the evening will be international cuisine inspired by the countries of Claude’s travels.

Resident Seeking Assistance for Clinical Trial

“Almost four years ago a three hour eye twitch turned into a diagnosis of two tumors in my head and two in my neck. My body overproduces dopamine and adrenaline which causes tumors to grow along my  nervous system, obtain their own blood supply and play havoc with the surrounding nerves. I hadn't felt well for a while prior to diagnosis so I was deteriorating more quickly than I had wanted. Radiation was unsuccessful and caused tumor growth in 2011 at UNC Chapel Hill. Thankfully I am an Air Force veteran and the VA helped pay for my medical care at Duke through 2013. I've had my left carotid artery replaced and sacrificed my left vocal chord in 2013 at Duke because I was within several weeks of a major stroke.
On a great note, the tumor was mostly removed. Later in 2013 I had another tumor resection at Duke. However, it couldn’t all be removed because of the location of a nerve. I also have a tumor on my brain stem that is growing faster than expected.
Neuroendocrine cancers are very rare and there is not a lot of funding for research. I wasn't a candidate for one trial but I've been accepted into a new clinical trial with only one site in the US located in Houston. I've undergone the testing at Duke for this medication. My tumors do absorb it and should cause shrinking or cease progression of growth. This is my only chance right now. What would come next is a permanent trache and feeding tube in the near future as well as new tumor development throughout my body. There is no need to share everything that is wrong with me, but I can tell you what is right with me. I still try to sing (against my friends and family's wishes) with one vocal chord. I still love to laugh until I cry. I've learned to appreciate the sunrise and another sunset.
I still have the compassion and understanding to know that there are many people in a worse situation than I am. I have a strong will to live and have done my best to maintain a positive attitude. I need to be here for my son Nick.
The clinical trial requires all expenses to be paid for up front prior to each treatment. Additional costs include airfare, car rental, food and lodging. Unfortunately I am permanently disabled and not in the position to cover all of the expenses that are going to be involved throughout this trial for the next two years.
It's totally not in my nature to ask for assistance with anything if I can at all help it. But I'm not ready to become that debilitated not if there's a single chance out there that I can do something to stop it. I have swallowed my pride and asked for your assistance. Please consider making a donation to help me http://gofundme.com/nt1080
