A Good Summer’s Work: J. Alden Weir, Connecticut Impressionist

Sponsored by: Lyman Allyn Art Museum

American Impressionist J. Alden Weir is most often associated with his studio at Weir Farm in western Connecticut, yet many of the artist’s best works were created at his little known retreat in Windham, where he painted each summer for nearly four decades. A Good Summer’s Work focuses on paintings created in eastern Connecticut by Weir and others in his circle, including Childe Hassam, Emil Carlsen and John Singer Sargent. Bringing together for the first time more than forty works from museums and private collections across the country, the exhibit considers the unique inspiration that American Impressionists drew from the eastern Connecticut landscape.

A Glass of Beer History

Sponsored by: Connecticut River Museum

Presented by the Museum’s executive director Christopher Dobbs and folk musician Rick Spencer, this program will explore the origins of beer, its growth as a popular beverage, and its evolving place in American society. From ancient civilizations to the modern microbrew craze of today, tastings will reflect beer’s evolution.

Five beers will be tasted throughout the night. These include a barleywine, which Dobbs notes is “considered to be the world’s first beer.” Other beers being tasted are a German-American lager, a classic English-style porter, an India Pale Ale (IPA) and a featured local beer.

Steady Habit Brewing Company will be featured as one of Connecticut River Valley’s newest microbreweries. Based out of Haddam, owner and brewmaster Jon Peterson will join Dobbs and Spencer during the tasting with one of his handcrafted beers.

In addition to the tastings and history, Spencer will join Dobbs with rousing drinking songs that support the program’s themes. They will be accompanied by signer Dawn Indermuehle. Spencer, an accomplished folk musician, said that “these songs do more than just support the night’s themes; they expand the audience’s understanding and dive into the social customs and concerns around drink.” Both Dobbs and Spencer noted that you cannot just reflect on beer’s history without also discussing temperance and vice.

Deep River’s Pizzeria DaVinci is donating food that will complement the assorted beers. Dobbs stated that this is the “perfect way to enjoy a beer tasting. Pizzeria DaVinci is known in the area for their high quality New Haven style pizza and wonderful breads and desserts.”

The event is open to the public, however, reservations are required due to limited space. Participants must be 21 or over and show valid ID at the door. Tickets include the program with beer and food tastings. Prices are: $10 for Museum members and $16 for the general public.

Margu was just nine years old when she was sold into captivity, marched 80 miles to the West African coast, held in the notorious Dunbomo slave pens on Lomboko Island, and then shipped to Cuba. In 1839, she was one of four children among the 53 captives aboard the schooner Amistad, headed toward a life of slavery. She ended up in Connecticut. Margu, as portrayed by storyteller and actress, Tammy Denease, will visit the New Haven Museum on Thursday, March 10, 2016, at 5:30 p.m., commemorating the 175th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that gave the Amistad captives their freedom. The presentation, “Sarah Margu: A Child of the Amistad,” will share the moving details of Margu’s life in the Northeast, and Africa, and tell how she became the first African to graduate college in the United States. Margu will also share how she became a deeply conflicted woman rooted in two different cultures, on two different continents. The free event is sponsored by the Amistad Committee, Inc., Friends of Grove Street Cemetery, and the New Haven Museum.

Following a revolt on board the Amistad, and seizure of the vessel off the shores of Long Island, New York, the captives were imprisoned in New Haven, Connecticut. Margu and the other children were held in the home of the jailer, in New London. After gaining her freedom through a landmark legal victory on March 9, 1841, Margu lived in Farmington, Connecticut, and was educated by abolitionists. She was one of the 39 former Amistad captives who returned to their homeland. But in 1846, 14-year-old Margu returned to the United States, and later graduated from Oberlin College, the first U.S. college to admit African students

Noting that many people are aware of the legal aspects of the Amistad saga, Denease says that she will share the human side of the story. “After my performances people have a different outlook and appreciation for the Amistad captives as being human, and not just cargo.”

Denease was born in Columbus, Mississippi, where she spent countless hours with her great-grandmother, a former enslaved person, and her grandmother. Both women were centenarians and noted storytellers. Denease’s upbringing instilled in her a passion for history. As a storyteller in her own right, she brings history to life, taking viewers back in time to more fully understand the past, and how it led to the present. Denease specializes in strengthening public appreciation for noteworthy black women, holding her enlightening presentations at museums, schools and historical sites across New England. As a historical tour guide for Connecticut museums, she teaches children colonial history, health, medicine, and slavery and Native-American history.

The New Haven Museum is home to the Amistad Gallery, which exhibits a significant collection of materials from the Amistad rebellion and trial. Subtitled “Cinque Lives Here,” the Amistad Gallery includes a portrait of Cinque, leader of the Amistad rebellion, by New Haven painter Nathaniel Jocelyn. The painting is generally understood to be the first, and one of the finest, early portrayals of an African in American art. The collection also includes a comprehensive timeline of the Amistad narrative, notable ephemera from the period—including a letter from one of the Amistad captives and a letter from John Quincy Adams—the keys to the New Haven jail cell where the captives were held during the trial, and the law-office sign of Roger Sherman Baldwin, attorney for the captives.

About The Amistad Committee Inc.
Established in 1988, The Amistad Committee, Inc. is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization. The original Amistad Committee formed to raise funds for the legal defense and return voyage of the subsequently liberated Africans who were involved in the Amistad Incident of 1839. Today, The Amistad Committee, Inc. is dedicated to the preservation and honoring of African and American history in Connecticut. The preservation of this history and its lessons are imperative and shall not be forgotten, diminished, erased or go unrecognized. “The work to be done is not to be completed in a day or a year; it will require a long time to remove the evils which slavery and habit have so deeply engraved upon the very foundation of everything.” Reverend Amos G. Beeman, Middletown, Sept. 6, 1862, letter to the editor of The Weekly Anglo-African newspaper.

About the Friends of Grove Street Cemetery
The Friends organization was founded in 1997 in response to growing public interest in the New Haven Burial Ground, better known as the Grove Street Cemetery, as an historic and cultural resource for the community and the nation. Grove Street Cemetery is the oldest incorporated cemetery in the United States, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been designated as a National Historic Landmark.

About the New Haven Museum
The New Haven Museum, founded in 1862 as the New Haven Colony Historical Society, is located in downtown New Haven at 114 Whitney Avenue. The Museum is currently celebrating 150 years of collecting, preserving and interpreting the history and heritage of Greater New Haven. Through its collections, exhibitions, programs and outreach, the Museum brings 375 years of New Haven history to life.

On Tuesday, March 1, Intelligence Squared U.S. brings its tenth year of debates to the Yale University itself for a live debate on the motion “Free Speech Is Threatened on Campus.”

Death Cafe

Sponsored by: Anam Cara Center

Death Cafe

The Last Monday of the month at the Anam Cara Center, 6:30-7:30 pm (except holidays)

The objective of Death Café is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite)  lives.

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death.

A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.

Our Death Cafes are always offered:
- On a not for profit basis
- In an accessible, respectful and confidential space

- As an open, respectful and confidential space where people can express their views safely.
- With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
- Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

Death Cafe is not a bereavement support or grief counseling setting. Death Cafe doesn’t work for people who, for whatever reason, aren’t able to discuss death comfortably and openly. There are many projects better set up for this.

• Death Cafes aren’t an opportunity to give people information about death and dying - regardless of how good or important it is.
