    - Everyone dreams of working out of their own home someday, whether it's to eliminate a horrible commute, cut overhead expenses to the bone, or achieve greater work-life balance. But be warned: working out of a home office isn't for everyone. It can be just as stressful as working in a "real" office, sometimes more so.

  • | 6:00pm - 7:30pm | Sports and Recreation, Ghosts: French Holocaust Children
    - Join us for the reception on the opening evening of the exhibition, Ghosts: French Holocaust Children, on Wednesday, January 23rd, from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Walsh Gallery at the Quick Center for the Performing Arts. Reserve your free ticket on Eventbrite.

    During World War II, over 11,000 Jewish children were deported from France to Nazi death camps. These children were among more than 75,000 French Jews deported under the Nazi plan for the “Final Solution to the Jewish question.” Of those French Jews transported, only 2,564 survived the Shoah. At most 300 of these Jewish children survived.

    Ghosts: French Holocaust Children is an installation of sculptural and photographic work by Robert Hirsch and Hirsch Projects. This three-dimensional installation acts as an ethereal commemoration to these children’s abbreviated lives. The project was created based on documents and photographs collected by author, lawyer, and Nazi-hunter Serge Klarsfeld that have been reinterpreted and presented in the form of three 1/5-scale boxcars containing over 600 expressionistic portraits of these deported children, plus a series of mural-sized individual portraits.

    Ghosts’ post-documentary approach transforms archival material by blending outer and inner realities to construct a historic media narrative that examines the extreme boundaries of human behavior regarding anti-Semitism, identity, loss, memory, and racism, conveying a haunting sense of lost human possibilities.

    The project further explores the space between art and history from the position that all accounts of historic events are personal constructions. It makes a case that contemplative picturemaking can imagine the unimaginable. This encourages viewers to foster different ways of understanding the Holocaust (genocide) that cannot be achieved through traditional documentary photography, encouraging both critical thinking and empathy.

    This Hirsch Projects exhibition is the result of collaboration among Robert Hirsch, Bob Collignon, Richard Schulenberg, Anne Muntges, and Serge Klarsfeld.

    This exhibition is presented with support from the Humanities Institute of Fairfield University, and the Bennett Center for Judaic Studies.

  • | 5:00pm - | Arts and Entertainment, Drawings and Paintings from The Horvitz Collection
    - Join us for a conversation between collector Jeffrey Horvitz and Alvin L. Clark, Jr., (Curator, The Horvitz Collection and The J.E.

Reserve your free ticket on Eventbrite.

    History, mythology, poetry, and portraiture provided a vast range of subject matter for French artists of the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries. Drawn from the peerless holdings of The Horvitz Collection—one of the world’s most distinguished collections of Old Master and early modern French art—this two-part presentation features drawings by such celebrated artists as Charles Le Brun, Nicolas de Largillière, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Jean-Baptiste Oudry and Anne-Louis Girodet de Roucy Trioson, and a small complement of paintings by Fragonard and other 18th-century masters.The exhibition Imaging Text, the centerpiece of this presentation, is an impressive selection of over 50 drawings for book illustration. These highlight not only the creative inventiveness of the artists who formulated lavish visual imagery from the written word, but also the rich literary traditions of France and the vibrant book publishing industry they spawned.

    - Spaght Gallery; August 17, 2018 – January 27,2019

    This is the last day to see this exhibit! In this key moment in our national history and the struggle for women’s equality and freedom of expression, the Fairfield Museum’s exhibition “Flappers: Fashion and Freedom,” examines the history and social impact of fashion and its relationship to the women’s movement of the 1920s. On the heels of World War I and the winning of suffrage, a rise of consumer culture included mass-produced images from movies, advertisements, and magazines in a way that had never before shaped an era of American womanhood. Drawing on the Fairfield Museum’s rich costume collection, this exhibition raises questions about the relationships between the “New Woman”, and the representations of freedom of movement, behavior, and thought that defined modern American womanhood and the “Flapper” culture and lifestyle.

  • | 3:00pm - | Sports and Recreation, Jack Powers Reads From His Collection of Poems
    - In Everybody's Vaguely Familiar, Fairfielder Jack Powers finds poetry--aka humor and wisdom--in limitations. The 39 poems in this collection come from a family's life; they catch the edges of teen rivalries, the fun in songs poorly sung, the bravado of kids with cars, the sense of loss, the sense of time, the twinkle in an alzheimered eye. Jack Powers will read from his new book of poems, Everybody’s Vaguely Familiar on Sunday, January 27, 2019 beginning at 3:00pm on the 2nd floor of the Fairfield University Bookstore Downtown, 1499 Post Road, Fairfield, CT 06824 (203) 255-7756. Book available for purchase/signing. This event is free and open to the public.

    "Jack Powers is attuned to twists of life and language—insults refitted as endearments, families defined by their troubles, great care taken with modes of recklessness . . . . “ --Amy Holman

    In Holman's words we find the essence of Powers' collection. His "twists of life and language," like the twists of code in a strand of dna, replicate both what we have in common and what distinguishes us. Why does everybody seem vaguely familiar? How do we relate to one another as children, as adults, as elders? Whose perspectives are most convincing--and why? How reliable are the symbols we use to code "I'm the coolest" or "Neither life nor death can frighten me"?

    Powers' poems, taken together, describe a full arc of living. In "Carry/Miscarry" we grieve the loss of "a not-yet being with thin veiny arms and legs and head," and in "Do Not Resuscitate," we're reminded that, though "the elderly score highest on happiness polls," it may be "just those who can answer the phone." In "Smokin' A Real Cool Brank," he traces his history with cigarettes from age 10 to age 29, balancing the pleasures and perils of tobacco; in "The God of Stupidity," we vicariously experience the crazy freedom of teenaged joyrides--though this poem and others also hint at the destruction potential in that freedom.

    About a quarter of the poems touch on elderly dementia, though usually with a generous dose of affectionate and respectful whimsy: "He Couldn't Remember/ why he got up, why he'd come upstairs/ . . . But then it never mattered/ what he'd been looking for anyway,/ it’s what he'd found. Like this paisley-moted/ shaft of afternoon light bending/ through the dusty panes; a yellow spotlight/ like one from that thirties painter famous/ for lonely men in a night-lit diner." Everybody's Vaguely Familiar is ultimately a joyous collection.

    Jack Powers teaches special education, English and math at Joel Barlow High School in Redding, CT. He won the 2015 and 2012 Connecticut River Review Poetry Contests and he was a finalist for the 2013 and 2014 Rattle Poetry Prizes. His poems have appeared in The Southern Review, Poet Lore, Barrow Street, Cortland Review and elsewhere. He lives with his wife, Anne, in Fairfield, CT.

    - The Circus is Back...

    Live from the circus capitol of the world, Australia’s Gravity & Other Myths offers the future of acrobatics. High-flying performers are pushed to their physical limits without reserve, breaking down their usual guards and introducing the reality of failure and weakness. Featuring seven acrobats supported by driving live percussion, their recent hit, A Simple Space, is simultaneously raw, frantic, delicate, and presented so intimately that you can feel the heat, hear every breath, and be immersed in every moment.

    Formed in 2009, Gravity & Other Myths is an internationally renowned circus company pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus. It has rocketed to stellar acclaim utilizing an honest approach to performance, to create shows with a focus on human connection and acrobatic virtuosity. They have been honored with the Dance Award 2015 for Best Physical Theatre and the Green Room Award 2015 for Outstanding Contemporary Circus, among others.

    If you haven’t seen Gravity & Other Myths yet, you must. It is so much fun.

Fun things to do in Fairfield

Since 1986 the Town Planner Calendar has been keeping families across America up-to-date about events and other fun things to do right in their hometown.

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity! Town Planner franchisees set their own hours and can work out of their homes while providing a valuable service to both homeowners and local businesses in the area.
