Virtual/Zoom Program: Norman Rockwell: Inclusion, Exclusion, and Evolving Views on Race
Monday, January 25th at 6:30pm
In celebration of Martin L. King Day, we hope you will join us for this special Zoom program with Jane Oneail of Culturally Curious. Norman Rockwell is heralded for depicting and defining American life. He often captured bittersweet images of people experiencing universal and relatable feelings of being left out or left behind. Yes, as an artist working in the 20th Century, his works are curiously devoid of America’s rich cultural and racial diversity. Towards the end of his career, Rockwell painted several poignant works about race in America that can be seen as an extension of his earlier sense of the power of inclusion and exclusion.

Virtual/Zoom Program: Virtual Program: Presidential Landmarks in New England
Monday, February 22nd at 6:30pm
In celebration of Presidents Day please join us for: RESIDENTIAL LANDMARKS IN NEW ENGLAND with guest author David Kruh. This program is based on David’s book, which was co-written with his father Louis.
Do you know where in New England… The oath of office was taken by a President of the United States? A plaque commemorates a Presidential visit to a bar? David writes: In this slide show, audiences will take a 50-minute trip through 200 years of the U.S. Presidency, focusing on the native New Englanders who called the White House home. Together, we will visit most of the sites in New England dedicated to the United States Presidents, including birthplaces, homes, libraries, and yes, even bars. Its great combination of history and travelogue will be of interest to both the historically minded and tourist alike.
