This invitation comes from Andrew Chatfield on behalf of the CFA:
The Muslim Coalition of Connecticut coordinates an exhibition of photography focused on Muslim women in America as part of “Muslim Women’s Voices at Wesleyan.” This exhibition showcases photographs that challenge stereotypes of Muslim American women and explores the diversity and complexity of this community. There will be an artist talk at 5pm.
Date: Tuesday, April 14th
Time: 4:30pm – 5:30pm
Place: Green Street Teaching and Learning Center, 51 Green Street, Middletown
From the always artsy Zach Scheinfeld ’16:
On Saturday from 1-5pm Art House will be
hosting a crafts fair! The event will feature work from over 30
student artists in mediums such as on-site portraits, jewelry, henna,
blown glass, drawings, paintings, face painting, woodblock prints,
etchings, hand crafted books, and much much more! There will also be
several sets of live music and plenty of yummy food.
Remember – sales do not necessarily have to be monetary. Artists will
set their own prices; whether their drawing sells for 10$, two
dinners, a print in return, or any other form of trade is up to them.
Please stop by with friends and a couple of bucks to support our
artists and Green St. Arts Center.
Date: Saturday, February 7th
Time: 1-4 PM
Place: Art House
Cost: Pay what you’d like at the door

Andy Ribner ’14 secretly hates education and just wants to beef up his resume for law school, pass it on:
Come join Green Street and Higher Order Thinking (HOT) Schools for a two-day workshop in teaching and learning!
