Tune in to WPKN, 89.5FM on Monday, Feb. 8 at noon to hear the February Spotlight on Arts & Culture. This program welcomes members from a number of our local cultural institutions to find out how they celebrate Black History Month, what it means to them, how, especially after the year Black Lives Matter moved center stage here and abroad, we can use it to examine more deeply the hidden racism of our society and institutions, and how, in celebrating this month of Black history and culture, we also need to move beyond it to recognize and celebrate the diversity of American culture as deeply as we can across all 12 months of the year. Past SPOTLIGHTS...
Collective Action Against Racism and Inequity (CAARI) is an ongoing series of community conversations and workshops designed to enable individuals, and the organizations many of them represent, work towards implementing practical solutions that respond positively to the embedded racism in our society, our organizations and ourselves. The series started with three "Conversations" that explored how racism has shaped our understanding of human culture, and how we can practically begin to dismantle racism in the arts, society and our personal interactions. The workshops are now continuing with 20+ individuals, progressing from personal reflection, through group exercises, to meaningful actions whose effectiveness can be measured. A report on the Conversations is available here. 

Please take our COVID-19 Impact Survey - an effort we are conducting along with our statewide peer organizations to take a unified measure of the impact of the pandemic on our entire cultural community. Thank you to those who have responded to date. Please, everyone else, click here and take this short survey. It will help update and assess the total 2020 economic, job and audience/ participant impact of COVID-19. Results of the survey will be shared with legislators, municipal leaders, community members, funders and more. Your input is vital!

Diana Gubbay grew up in Montreal, absorbing the bilingual culture of a city rich in art and architecture, and vowing to pursue a career as an artist. She moved to New York City in the late 1970's at a time when the city's streets, lofts and galleries were burgeoning with experimentation and innovation. From her loft in Dumbo she created installations, drawings and sculptures that were shown across North America. A long hiatus ensued as she raised two children and established a practice in holistic family health. Looking deeply into concepts of health and disease she found it to be an inspiring privilege to accompany people of all ages and stages in a quest to manifest their gifts and talents. Reestablishing creative pursuits in the last several years, she has found a changed art world and has learned entirely new techniques that include digital media. In 2021, Diana has exhibited in the "2021 International Juried Exhibition" at The Center for Contemporary Art, Bedminster, NJ (where she won 2nd prize), in "Ecstasy & The Bounty of Nature" at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts (where she also won 2nd prize), at the Fine Line Creative Arts Center, St. Charles, IL, and the San Fernando Arts & Cultural Center, San Fernando.

Jill Harrington Nichols does not remember a time when she did not love creating art. One of her first artistic forays was creating a tiger’s head with colored gravel — which her parents hung above the stove when she was five. How far Jill has come! The Shelton artist now has two paintings — titled “Phi” and “Juno” — both created to celebrate the Cosmos and the sacred feminine hanging in the Vatican Observatory, an astronomical research and educational institution at the opposite end of the papal gardens from the former Pope’s summer residence in Vatican City. Other paintings sit in the collection of former FBI Director James Comey: “Washington D.C.,” most notably seen as the backdrop during his interview on “Face the Nation,” and “The Grand Canyon,” installed in Comey’s office and shown in scenes in Showtime’s “The Comey Rule.” Read full article...

Illuminate your day with a selection of the best and brightest Pantone-filled artworks so that you too can find inspiration, hope and fortitude for the new year. Read the Blog

The mayors of 10 major U.S. cities, including Stamford, CT,  have penned a letter to the Biden-Harris administration asking it to take an integrated federal approach to supporting the arts. In their missive, the mayors noted that the September unemployment rate for those in the arts ranged from roughly three to six times that of the overall national unemployment rate of 8.5 percent, according to the National Endowment of the Arts. According to 2020 reports by both the NEA and the U.S. Department of Commerce, the arts sector, whose GDP blossomed by 69.5 percent between 1998 and 2016, by 2017 was valued at $877.8 billion and thus responsible for 4.5 percent of the U.S. GDP, contributing more to the national economy than the construction, transportation and warehousing, travel and tourism, mining, utilities, and agriculture industries.
