The Center for Contemporary Printmaking is partnering with the Connecticut Center for the Book and New Haven's Creative Arts Workshop at the April 21 Maker Faire 2018 in Westport, produced by Remarkable Steam and co-sponsored by the Westport Library, to demonstrate the art of making books. Stop by at The Center for the Book's booth to see how "a book is made up of many parts...paper, cover design, artwork, layout, and binding, to name just a few elements.”  More...
The New England Fashion & Design Association (NEF&DA) is putting the finishing touches to its first Norwalk Children's Art & Design Festival. Executive Director Irina Simeonova and her team has assembled more than 60 participants, all of which are small businesses created by women in the community. The events will be at two locations: at NEF&DA itself (in the South Norwalk Train Station) May 10, which will showcase fashion, art, fine art and classical music; and at the Crystal Theater, May 11, which will throw a party with rock and classical music, dance, ballet, poetry and singing, with performances from the dancers of the Norwalk Metropolitan Ballet Company, talented musicians from T.E.S.S., performers from the Crystal Theatre, jams from the Paul Green Rock Academy and much more.
The Philip Johnson Glass House will re-open in May with a new ceiling, funded in part by Bank of America and a Good to Great grant from the CT Office of the Arts. Sagging in several areas, the ceiling was stabilized where the decoupling from its support was most significant, in 2015, while a study identified the optimal repair process. The discovery of asbestos in the ceiling plaster and the fact that the system attaching the ceiling to the roof timbers was inadequate for the weight of the ceiling necessitated replacement. The ceiling also prevented opening two of the four doors, hampering the functionality designed by Johnson. "The Glass House is an international icon of modern architecture," said Glass House Executive Director, Gregory Sages. "The replaced ceiling will allow visitors to experience Johnson's intended design and functionality of the house and the objects contained inside." More...
The Ridgefield Library family is heartbroken over the loss of their long-serving Assistant Director Mary Rindfleisch. Mary, who selflessly supported the arts and her community while helping build the Ridgefield Library into a beacon of knowledge and delight, died unexpectedly on April 5.

"Her brilliance shines in every corner of our light-filled building." More...

From The Journal: High schoolers from five countries visited the United Nations earlier this year to find solutions for sustainable development issues using their STEAM skills. As part of the "Global Classroom STEAM Challenge," a program sponsored by electronics maker Samsung, student teams worked virtually with international counterparts over 10 weeks to come up with solutions for problems with energy, climate change, poverty and hunger. These make up some of the 17 goals addressed UN's "sustainable development goals" (SGDs) program, all of which have specific targets to be achieved by 2030. As the culminating event, the students presented their proposed solutions to a panel of adults that included government leaders, non-governmental organizations, educators and corporate representatives. Each U.S. school was paired with a school in another country and collaborated on a virtual collaboration platform provided by IVECA, a non-profit organization that promotes "intercultural competence." Projects included: addressing the "No Poverty" and "Zero Hunger" goals by creating a website and an NGO to collect and distribute food; tackling the "Affordable and Clean Energy," "Climate Action" and "Life on Land" goals by co-developing devices to reuse recyclables and plastic to cool and filter the air and conserve water; "Decent Work and Economic Growth" and "Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure" goals by proposing educational programs to fight bias in the community and workplace; and the "Good Health and Well-Being" goal with co-developed websites and a mobile app with the intent of reducing or better managing waste garbage in their communities.


In its latest round of funding, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) awarded $18.6 million to 199 humanities projects around the country. From the NEH announcement: "Some projects illuminate the unique history and culture of a particular state, city, or region. “New England’s Hidden Histories” will collect and publish 18,000 pages of records from the nation’s founding era from the archives of northeastern churches, while a grant to the New-York Historical Society will provide for the digitization of 66,000 photographs documenting the construction of the New York subway system. Other funding will support creation of a new permanent exhibition at the Idaho State Museum on the role of Native Americans in the history and culture of Idaho and several grants to support humanities-based programs for military veterans and their families, such as a grant to Aquila Theatre for Citizen Soldiers, which trains veterans and civilians to conduct public performance-and-discussion events on war-related themes in classical Greek and contemporary American drama." There were five projects funded in Connecticut (none in Fairfield County) amounting to $80,000. Grants went to: Goodwin College, East Hartford, $26,329 for planning for integrating humanities content into career-focused programs in business, manufacturing, homeland security, and criminal justice; Wesleyan University, $6,000 for a summer stipend for research and writing of a book-length study on literary and cultural connections between the Philippines and Latin America, 1898-1964. Lyman Allyn Museum, $1,000 for hosting the  exhibition Spirited: Prohibition in America; University of Connecticut, Storrs: $6,000 summer stipend for research leading to publication of a book-length study of religious artifacts and piracy in the early modern western Mediterranean; and $40,000 for the digitization, transcription, and transliteration of Vladimir Bogoraz's handwritten notebooks of Itelmen language-related material.

Fairfield County's Community Foundation made a presentation April 12 on the results of Giving Day 2018. Results appeared impressive:
Participants this year: 416 (an increase)
Total raised: $1.401 million
Total gifts: 16,593 (from 13,000 donors so some donors made multiple gifts)
Average gift: $77; 94% <$100
Largest increase was in the 18-25 and 26-39 -year-olds, however the largest share 41% was given by those 56+. One lesson was that 
setting goals is important: one group had three goals: 100% board participation; an overall goal of $10,000; and to win one of the Power-Hour prizes. They met all three. It's important to have a plan and have an active presence in solicitations. For a video of the presentation, click here.

If you haven't yet faxed in the simple agreement form to Jeanne Hebert (860-707-1811) to participate in Open House Day, June 9, you have until 5pm Fri April 13 to do so to receive marketing support, lawn signs or a banner, and other assistance from the Office of Tourism. The form is here. See all the information about Open House Day here. This is the 14th such event designed to showcase Connecticut’s diverse world of history, art, and tourism and is a great way for residents to discover or rediscover all that is happening in our state.

The Connecticut Office of Tourism has just released its latest Tourist Tracker, laying out its research on the tourism economy within the state. Tourism is a $14.7 billion-a-year industry, supporting some 122,000 total jobs including 83,000 direct jobs. However, there is a downward trend in brand awareness and intent-to-visit-Connecticut, reflecting the reduction in funding. Click on the image below for the full-scale Tracker.
