Nina Simone … What More Can I Say? 

When: Sept. 13-Nov. 30 2012
The Stone Center appears to be on a mission to salute the late Tryon native Nina Simone in a way no one has done before. It seems that way once you take a lap around the artifacts and documents that make up this exhibit, which opens Thursday with a 7 p.m. reception and runs through Nov. 30. Culled from several collections (including one curated by Carrol Waymon, Nina's brother), the exhibit shows Simone in warts-and-all fashion. Old LPs and biographies rest in glass cases; old photos and framed programs line the walls. There's also letters and correspondence written by Simone to her brother, detailing the trials and tribulations she dealt with in her later years. Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m., there's also a one-act, one-woman play on Simone's life, written by playwright/ poet Howard Craft and starring actress/ singer Yolanda Rabun as Simone. —Craig D.
