Living heritage in Delray Beach

Who’s ready to celebrate? In observation of Black History Month and the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum throws its annual Living Heritage Festival. The event, which pays tribute to the area’s African, Carribean and Haitian roots, takes over the streets of Delray Beach with food, art, games and live performances. One of the performances will feature Delray youth performing their own written monologues, poems and other scenes, under the guidance of writer-director Darius Daughtry and rapper-lyricist Jamal Jones.

Spady Living Heritage Festival:  1 to 6 p.m. Saturday. Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, 170 NW Fifth Ave., Delray Beach. Info: 561-279-8883 or www.spadymuseum.com

Ceramics and culture combine

There’s an innate sense of tradition when it comes to the art of ceramics — an art medium that brings you closer to nature. This idea is brought full-force in the new exhibition at Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, titled “Nature, Tradition and Innovation: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Gordon Brodfuehrer Collection,” which starts this weekend. Over 50 works meant for everyday use comprise the new show, including flower vases, tea bowls, candle holders, platters and more.

“Nature, Tradition and Innovation”: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays, beginning Saturday through April 22. Adults $15, seniors $13, children ages 6 to 17 $9. Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, 4000 Morikami Park Road, Delray Beach. Info: 561-495-0233 or www.morikami.org

SPLURGE

String quartet in Lake Worth

There’s nothing quite like an evening set to the sound of strings and who better to provide that classical background than a quartet? On Wednesday, music lovers can enjoy a performance from the Attacca Quartet, a Juilliard-trained ensemble of young musicians, at Palm Beach State College’s Duncan Theatre in Lake Worth. The quartet had the honor of being selected as the Quartet in Residence by the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the 2014-2015 season, in addition to performing around the world.

Attacca Quartet: 2 p.m. Wednesday. $39.75. Duncan Theatre, Stage West, Palm Beach State College, 4200 Congress Ave., Lake Worth. Info: 561-868-3309 or www.palmbeachstate.edu
