Lamar math instructor Gary Brice said he started out writing a book to pay “homage to a special place and special people,” but ended up writing a timely memoir about racial tensions.

Hank and Cupcakes are coming to Beaumont to perform at the Logon Café on Thursday, Sept. 14, at 9 p.m. with no cover charge for all ages. The New York Post calls Hank (Ariel Scherbacovsky) and Cupcakes (Sagit Shir) a “funky fresh sound,” so if you have never seen them live, here’s your chance. The duo flew to Berlin in 2012 to record their debut record at the famous Hansa Studios where U2, David Bowie, R.E.M, Iggy Pop and many more legends have recorded legendary music, with Swedish producer Ludwig Boss. The Logon Café is at 3805 Calder Ave.

Texas native and artist James Surls has been commissioned to create Lamar University’s newest art addition to bring inspiration and beauty to the campus.

“Everyone can be inspired by art,” said Kim Steinhagen, Public Art Committee co-chair. “It is one of those things that enriches our lives the more we are exposed to it, and it beautifies the campus. We love the landscaping on campus, and art is just another part of that.”
