Mon Jun 18 – Thu Jun 21, 2018 2:30pm – 12:00pm

Conference | Full of Your Glory: Liturgy, Cosmos, Creation

Sponsored by: Yale Institute of Sacred Music

The conference will explore ideas of creation and cosmos embedded in the worship life of the church at a time of unprecedented attention to ecological and cosmological concerns. Conference speakers will highlight some of the rich traditions of the past (ritual, visual, and musical, among others) and also address contemporary concerns.  The broader aim of the conference is to offer the resources of the liturgical tradition—and its particular insights—to the ongoing conversations around ecology and cosmology. It will become clear that liturgy has always been about more than human beings at worship: specific understandings of creation and the cosmos are in fact at the heart of all Christian worship.

Conference schedule and speakers list forthcoming.

Registration required. See event website for more details.

Artist Caryn Azoff will give a talk at her exhibit at BEKI Saturday March 3

Sponsored by: Congregation Beth El – Keser Israel (BEKI)

Caryn Azoff, whose art is on display at Beth El – Keser Israel [BEKI] in New Haven from January 21 until April 8, will give an artist’s talk there on Saturday, March 3.

The chair of the Arts Department, Gallery Director, and Upper School Visual Arts Teacher at Hamden Hall Country Day School, Azoff creates brightly colored geometric abstract work.

Using colored pencil, watercolor, gouache, and flashe/acylic paint, Azoff has developed an art form in which process is inherent in the final images. She has a practice of daily expression in sketches, and the resulting abstract colors and shapes evolve with each new image.

The works on paper begin with Azoff’s hand drawn grid structure.  From here, the shapes and colors intui-tively inform the work. The simple geometric forms encompass each page, working in an 6 x 6” or an 8 x 8” structure. Inspiration of color and form come from illuminated text and Bauhaus influence.

Azoff was born in Los Angeles, California, but was raised in Connecticut. She received her BA and MS degrees at Central Connecticut State University.

Her work is available for purchase at Susan Eley Fine Art in New York City. Exhibited in locations throughout the United States, her art can also be viewed at www.carynazoff.com as well as in her studio at West River Studios in Westville Village and, recently, as a mural on Fountain Street in the Village.

Her talk will accompany the exhibit on March 3 at 1:00 pm. Sabbath rules will be observed.

Lunchtime Book Discussion: Girl in Disguise by Greer Macallister

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

This is an exciting, well-crafted historical novel featuring Kate Warne, the first female Pinkerton detective in 1856 Chicago. Kate is a widow and needs a job, convincing Allan Pinkerton that a female detective can go places and do things a male detective cannot. Once hired, Kate becomes skilled at lock picking and surveillance, but she is best in disguise—as a prostitute, rich matron, spinster, clerk, Southern belle, doting sister, and false friend—an expert liar, playing a role. She investigates burglaries, bank robberies, embezzlement, counterfeiting, blackmail, and murder. The Pinkerton Detective Agency is a man’s world, and Kate is forced to prove herself, especially when someone tries to discredit her. She eventually earns the respect of her fellow detectives, learning a secret to be used later. Kate carries a pistol, but her wit, careful observation, and boldness see her through tricky and unexpected situations with desperate, dangerous criminals. Registration is requested.

SHADOW OF A DOUBT

See the psychological thriller Hitchcock believed to be his finest film. SHADOW OF A DOUBT, starring Teresa Wright and Joseph Cotten, turns 70 this year, and we mark the occasion with a 35mm screening of what Dave Kehr described as Hitchcock’s “first indisputable masterpiece.” In the words of Richard Brody, SHADOW OF A DOUBT “peels back the welcoming warmth and sincere innocence of small-town life to reveal the gullibility and the naïveté underneath; it’s a fiction about the perpetuation of fictions.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

He was already a legend for his stage incarnation of Brutus Jones, a Pullman porter who powers his way to the rule of a Caribbean island, but with this, his first sound-era film role, his regal image was married to his booming voice for eternity.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

Lunarfest -  Celebrate the Year of the Dog!

Sponsored by: New Haven Museum

Celebrate the Year of the Dog and the Chinese New Year in New Haven on Saturday, February 17, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., as the New Haven Museum teams with the Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University and the Yale-China Association, to co-host Lunarfest 2018. The event offers fascinating hands-on workshops, talks, and performances for all ages. All activities are free and open to the public, but space is limited for some activities.

Lunarfest begins at 10:00 a.m. with a colorful lion dance and performances on Whitney Avenue, between Grove Street and Trumbull Street, and onto Audubon Street, and remarks by Mayor Toni Harp. Yale mascot Handsome Dan will join revelers in the parade up Whitney Avenue. From there, the fun moves indoors at 1 pm to three locations: New Haven Museum (114 Whitney Ave.), The Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University, Luce Hall (34 Hillhouse Ave), and the Yale-China Association (442 Temple St). Activities include children’s arts and crafts; calligraphy; music; dance lessons, paper-lantern making; language classes; cooking demonstrations; poetry; theatre; exhibits, and more. 

The theme of Lunarfest 2018 is “People-to-People,” reflecting a spirit of cross-cultural dialogue, specifically between the American and Chinese cultures. People-to-People also underscores the commonality of all people. Regardless of an individual’s culture, there are innate aspects of the human experience that connect us all around the world—humor, food, art, music, literature. This year’s festival will focus on promoting what brings us together—people-to-people.

For more information, or to register, please visit www.yalechina.org/lunarfest email lunarfest@yalechina.org or call 203-432-3427

The New Haven Museum has been collecting, preserving and interpreting the history and heritage of Greater New Haven since its inception as the New Haven Colony Historical Society in 1862.

Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises

Sponsored by: Connecticut River Museum

Winter along the Connecticut River brings many things- including cold winds and grey skies.  But the change in seasons also signals a shift in the ecology of New England’s Great River.  The osprey, the swallows and the egrets may be gone, but in their place now are mergansers, goldeneyes, and the highlight- bald eagles!  These once rare, majestic birds can be seen fishing along the unfrozen lower Connecticut River, a testament to one of the greatest environmental recoveries of the last half century.  To highlight these winter wonders, CRM has planned a range of programs and activities.
The Connecticut River Museum (CRM) is happy to again partner with Connecticut River Expeditions to offer Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises in February and March.  These popular trips offer visitors a chance to get out on the River in winter to see eagles, as well as other winter species that visit the estuary such as harbor seals.  Cruises aboard the environmentally friendly R/V RiverQuest provide passengers with a comfortable, heated cabin supplied with hot coffee and tea, as well as binoculars to aid in spotting and narration from a staff naturalist.  These cruises depart Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at various times in the morning and early afternoon, and are $42 per passenger.  Museum members get 10% off and group rates are available. 
In addition, the Museum will offer its annual Eagles of Essex exhibit, which offers a wealth of information about bald eagles and their return to the lower Connecticut River.  Patrons can try their hand at building an eagle nest, and marvel at life size silhouettes of Eagles and other large raptors, a map showing good shore viewing locations, and other displays.  On the opening day of the season, Saturday, Feb. 3rd, the exhibit will host Family Activities related to the return of the Eagles from 1 to 4PM, free with Museum admission.
On Saturday, February 17th and March 17th, award winning photographer Stanley Kolber returns to CRM to offer his annual Bird Photography Workshop.  Stan has been photographing birds for years, and takes great pleasure in sharing his experience with aspiring photographers of all levels, through anecdotes, slides, and question and answer.  In addition to helping skills development, his greatest pleasure in giving workshops is the opportunity to kindle and encourage his audience’s interest in the natural world.  He hopes that young people as well as adults will attend the workshops, so that he can impart some of his own enthusiasm to the next generation.  These popular programs are also free with Museum admission.
A Live Birds of Prey Show will be offered on Sunday, February 18th at 4:30PM.  CRM will partner with Horizon Wings Raptor Rehabilitation Organization for this annual show, which features a bald eagle and several other species of raptors.  Visitors will be able to get an up close look at the birds while learning more about the lifecycle and ecology of these magnificent animals.  This event will be held at the Centerbrook Meeting House and is free to the public.
For a full listing of event details, go to www.ctrivermuseum.org or call 860-767-8269.  The Connecticut River Museum is located on the Essex waterfront at 67 Main Street and is open Tuesday – Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Connecticut River Museum, located in the historic Steamboat Dock building, offers exhibits and programs about the history and environment of the Connecticut River.
