It should prove interesting to see what prediction of future news headlines were made by master illusionist David Caserta back in August, when he made an audio recording and put it in a sealed box located in front of the State Theatre in Easton. The box will be unsealed during Caserta’s family-friendly “Haunted Illusions” show on Sunday at 5 p.m. Caserta, from the Lehigh Valley, also included a prediction of the total ticket sales for his show.

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Albertus Meyers Bridge in Allentown, a special exhibition, “The 8th Street Bridge Turns 100 Years,” opens Monday and runs through Dec. 20, at the Penn State Lehigh Valley campus in Center Valley. The bridge was dedicated Nov. 17, 1913, with General Harry C. Trexler credited as the impetus to build it to enhance the economy of the valley as it connected the north and south sides of the city.

The exhibit features approximately 30 regional artists who have already created art about the landmark or who were invited to create a work of art in their medium. It also features artists who painted in the mid-1900s, many of whom were influential artistic leaders in the valley at the time the bridge was built. Works by Edgar S. Baum, Walter E. Baum and John Berninger are included.

A reception and community event will be held Nov 17.
