  • | 9:00am - 5:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, photography, art, McCurry, India, travel, museum
    - The Housatonic Museum of Art presents the exhibition, Steve McCurry: India, featuring forty-four incredible photographs that capture the vibrant color and chaos, providing a stunning backdrop for the ordinary people who live and work in an extraordinary place. The exhibit begins Thursday, January 12 and continues through February 10, 2017. All are welcome, and encouraged to attend.

    Best known for his iconic ‘Afghan Girl’ image that graced the cover of National Geographic over 30 year ago, McCurry stands as one of the most important voices in contemporary photography. With scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name, McCurry recently turned to India for inspiration. He says, “I was looking for street scenes, images that show the economy, recreation, and religion—pictures that address the key elements of a place and, at the same time, are interesting in their own right.”

    Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is a study in contrasts: of luxury and of squalor, of millionaires and beggars, of deep spirituality and sophisticated commerce, combining the ancient and the contemporary. McCurry reveals India’s beauty and also remarks on its contradictions. He documents the people, spiritual life, historic sites, urban centers and the landscape creating aesthetically beautiful images that captivate the viewer.

    McCurry has gone on to create stunning images over six continents. His work spans conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike - yet always retains the human element that made his celebrated image of the Afghan Girl such a powerful image. McCurry has been recognized with some of the most prestigious awards in the industry, including: the Robert Capa Gold Medal, National Press Photographers Award, and an unprecedented four first prize awards from the World Press Photo contest. The Minister of French Culture appointed McCurry a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters, and most recently the Royal Photographic Society in London awarded McCurry the Centenary Medal for Lifetime Achievement.

    McCurry books include The Imperial Way (1985), Monsoon (1988), Portraits (1999), South Southeast (2000), Sanctuary (2002), The Path to Buddha: A Tibetan Pilgrimage (2003), Steve McCurry (2005), Looking East (2006), In the Shadow of Mountains (2007), The Unguarded Moment (2009), The Iconic Photographs (2011), Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs (2013), From These Hands: A Journey Along the Coffee Trail (2015), India (2015), and On Reading (2016).

    ABOUT OUR MARCH

    On January 21, 2017 we will unite in downtown Stamford, CT for the Women’s March for Connecticut. We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

    The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us--women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished, and survivors of sexual assault. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.

    In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March for Connecticut will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world, that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

    We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.

    GUIDING PRINCIPLES

    Women’s rights are human rights, regardless of a woman’s race, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, sexual identity, gender expression, economic status, age or disability. We practice empathy with the intent to learn about the intersecting identities of each other. We will suspend our first judgement and do our best to lead without ego. We follow the principles of Kingian nonviolence, which are defined as follows:

    Principle 1: Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people. It is a positive force confronting the forces of injustice and utilizes the righteous indignation and spiritual, emotional, and intellectual capabilities of people as the vital force for change and reconciliation.

    Principle 2: The Beloved Community is the framework for the future. The nonviolent concept is an overall effort to achieve a reconciled world by raising the level of relationships among people to a height where justice prevails and persons attain their full human potential.

    Principle 3: Attack forces of evil, not persons doing evil. The nonviolent approach helps one analyze the fundamental conditions, policies and practices of the conflict rather than reacting to one’s opponents or their personalities.



    ORGANIZER'S MISSION AND VISION

    Organized by CT local groups, including those marginalized by the incoming administration in collaboration with the Women's March on Washington and Sister Marches around the world, this event is inclusive, and EVERYONE who supports the rights ALL welcome. Our mission is to further the ideal of justice for all people who consider the United States home. Our vision is to educate and empower individuals to connect with like-minded allies to be the change they wish to see in the world.

    - Stella Wild, MBA, Rosemary Adams, JD/MBA, Linda Robertson, MD.,Ph.D., and Beth Ziegler, MBA, have some things in common. Besides being educated, successful, professional women, they also share the same address.

    It isn't a swanky high rise apartment building or a beachfront condo - they reside at the Delaware Valley Federal Correctional Facility, a low-level security prison for white and ""pink"" collar criminals. With the Warden in one pocket and their cell block guard in another, the ""Divas"" continue to indulge their lavish and luxurious lifestyles until Beth is prematurely released and a murderess moves in to her place. Adding insult to injury, the Department of Corrections has announced its intention to close the Delval facility due to mismanagement and relocate inmates to the less-than-glamorous Black Rock Federal Prison. How do the Divas save Delval, solve a murder and reunite on a Roman holiday? Who ever said that crime doesn't pay?

  • | 9:00am - 5:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, photography, art, McCurry, India, travel, museum
    - The Housatonic Museum of Art presents the exhibition, Steve McCurry: India, featuring forty-four incredible photographs that capture the vibrant color and chaos, providing a stunning backdrop for the ordinary people who live and work in an extraordinary place. The exhibit begins Thursday, January 12 and continues through February 10, 2017. All are welcome, and encouraged to attend.

    Best known for his iconic ‘Afghan Girl’ image that graced the cover of National Geographic over 30 year ago, McCurry stands as one of the most important voices in contemporary photography. With scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name, McCurry recently turned to India for inspiration. He says, “I was looking for street scenes, images that show the economy, recreation, and religion—pictures that address the key elements of a place and, at the same time, are interesting in their own right.”

    Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is a study in contrasts: of luxury and of squalor, of millionaires and beggars, of deep spirituality and sophisticated commerce, combining the ancient and the contemporary. McCurry reveals India’s beauty and also remarks on its contradictions. He documents the people, spiritual life, historic sites, urban centers and the landscape creating aesthetically beautiful images that captivate the viewer.

    McCurry has gone on to create stunning images over six continents. His work spans conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike - yet always retains the human element that made his celebrated image of the Afghan Girl such a powerful image. McCurry has been recognized with some of the most prestigious awards in the industry, including: the Robert Capa Gold Medal, National Press Photographers Award, and an unprecedented four first prize awards from the World Press Photo contest. The Minister of French Culture appointed McCurry a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters, and most recently the Royal Photographic Society in London awarded McCurry the Centenary Medal for Lifetime Achievement.

    McCurry books include The Imperial Way (1985), Monsoon (1988), Portraits (1999), South Southeast (2000), Sanctuary (2002), The Path to Buddha: A Tibetan Pilgrimage (2003), Steve McCurry (2005), Looking East (2006), In the Shadow of Mountains (2007), The Unguarded Moment (2009), The Iconic Photographs (2011), Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs (2013), From These Hands: A Journey Along the Coffee Trail (2015), India (2015), and On Reading (2016).

    ABOUT:
    Co-presented by Focus on French Cinema

    THE BRAND NEW TESTAMENT begins with one simple conceit: God exists, and He’s a jerk. He lives in a high-rise apartment in Brussels and never gets out of His pajamas. He takes sadistic delight in dreaming up new “laws” to torment humanity, and He’s a petty tyrant to his wife and ten-year-old daughter, Ea. Like her brother before her, Ea has had enough of her Father’s abuse and when she spies the right opportunity, she hacks into His computer and leaks to the entire world—by text message—the only thing He has over them: their inevitable death date. After escaping and with her Father in pursuit, Ea gathers apostles and writes her own New Testament to try to fix the mess her Father has made of humanity. Her six apostles —a one-armed woman, a sex maniac, a killer, a woman who has been left by her husband, an office worker, and a gender dysphoric child—learn to celebrate life and love, and provide us with Jaco Van Dormael’s dark, witty and eccentric answer to the loaded question: what would you do if you knew exactly how much time you had left to live?

  • | 9:00am - 5:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, photography, art, McCurry, India, travel, museum
    - The Housatonic Museum of Art presents the exhibition, Steve McCurry: India, featuring forty-four incredible photographs that capture the vibrant color and chaos, providing a stunning backdrop for the ordinary people who live and work in an extraordinary place. The exhibit begins Thursday, January 12 and continues through February 10, 2017. All are welcome, and encouraged to attend.

    Best known for his iconic ‘Afghan Girl’ image that graced the cover of National Geographic over 30 year ago, McCurry stands as one of the most important voices in contemporary photography. With scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name, McCurry recently turned to India for inspiration. He says, “I was looking for street scenes, images that show the economy, recreation, and religion—pictures that address the key elements of a place and, at the same time, are interesting in their own right.”

    Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is a study in contrasts: of luxury and of squalor, of millionaires and beggars, of deep spirituality and sophisticated commerce, combining the ancient and the contemporary. McCurry reveals India’s beauty and also remarks on its contradictions. He documents the people, spiritual life, historic sites, urban centers and the landscape creating aesthetically beautiful images that captivate the viewer.

    McCurry has gone on to create stunning images over six continents. His work spans conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike - yet always retains the human element that made his celebrated image of the Afghan Girl such a powerful image. McCurry has been recognized with some of the most prestigious awards in the industry, including: the Robert Capa Gold Medal, National Press Photographers Award, and an unprecedented four first prize awards from the World Press Photo contest. The Minister of French Culture appointed McCurry a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters, and most recently the Royal Photographic Society in London awarded McCurry the Centenary Medal for Lifetime Achievement.

    McCurry books include The Imperial Way (1985), Monsoon (1988), Portraits (1999), South Southeast (2000), Sanctuary (2002), The Path to Buddha: A Tibetan Pilgrimage (2003), Steve McCurry (2005), Looking East (2006), In the Shadow of Mountains (2007), The Unguarded Moment (2009), The Iconic Photographs (2011), Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs (2013), From These Hands: A Journey Along the Coffee Trail (2015), India (2015), and On Reading (2016).

  • | 8:00pm - 11:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Theatre, Criminals, Holiday, Educated
    - Stella Wild, MBA, Rosemary Adams, JD/MBA, Linda Robertson, MD.,Ph.D., and Beth Ziegler, MBA, have some things in common. Besides being educated, successful, professional women, they also share the same address.

    It isn't a swanky high rise apartment building or a beachfront condo - they reside at the Delaware Valley Federal Correctional Facility, a low-level security prison for white and ""pink"" collar criminals. With the Warden in one pocket and their cell block guard in another, the ""Divas"" continue to indulge their lavish and luxurious lifestyles until Beth is prematurely released and a murderess moves in to her place. Adding insult to injury, the Department of Corrections has announced its intention to close the Delval facility due to mismanagement and relocate inmates to the less-than-glamorous Black Rock Federal Prison. How do the Divas save Delval, solve a murder and reunite on a Roman holiday? Who ever said that crime doesn't pay?
