Four Things to Do This June in Southwest Florida

Art Garfunkel
June 1 at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall at FSW, bbmannpah.com
Art Garfunkel is one of those artists whose sound succeeds in taking us back to another time. Most can’t shake the notion of him being just half of an iconic duo, but the individual who began singing as a child in synagogues is a poetic and beautiful performer all on his own.

AC vs. DC: Tesla vs. Edison
June 7-28 at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, sbdac.com
Technology infiltrates art in this unique exhibit that prompts artists to create original works inspired by the two historic figures and their era, discoveries, interests, characters, legacies and rivalry. We’re counting on the results to be—wait for it—electric.

Pirate Day
June 21 at the Marco Island Historical Museum, colliermuseums.com
When school has been out for more than a week, it’s typically time to scramble to entertain the kids—or visiting grandkids, for that matter. This annual event is perfect for young ones, entertaining them with themed arts and crafts, face painting, treasure hunts and more.

Mamma Mia!
June 26 through July 28 by The Naples Players, naplesplayers.org
As most local theaters and music halls are hanging up their proverbial “Gone Fishing” signs, The Naples Players are just beginning their brand-new season of offerings. This light and lively musical of ABBA songs, which has had a resurgence in popularity of late thanks to two Meryl Streep-starring films, is a welcome showing in the doldrums of summer.
