I know why the caged bird sings

For some people the South will always be synonymous with NASCAR, racial division and Deliverance. But Southerners and émigrés to the region know it's a place laden with magical charms all its own. BLACKBIRD ON YOUR SHOULDER: STORIES AND OTHER TRUTHS FROM THE SOUTH (pictured Linda Anderson's "Storm Rising over Eden") is a multimedia examination of that quicksilver notion of "Southernness" at Agnes Scott College through NOV. 20. The exhibition features some notable regional artists, such as E.K. Huckaby and Sheila Turner, and a host of attendant Southern loveliness including quintessential Dixie-esque filmmaker Ross McElwee, who will screen Bright Leaves, his thoughtful tale about the intertwined histories of tobaccy and the South. Exhibition: Mon.-Fri., 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; Sat.-Sun., noon-4 p.m. Dalton Gallery, Dana Fine Arts Building. Film: Mon., Nov. 20, 7 p.m. Maclean Auditorium. 141 E. College Ave., Decatur. 404-471-6244. daltongallery.agnesscott.edu.
