  • 'N-Word' Exhibit Takes A Hard Look At The Semantics Of Racism

    'N-Word' Exhibit Takes A Hard Look At The Semantics Of Racism

    Rhinold Ponder, an African-American artist, has hated “the n-word” his whole life. So it may seem strange that his recent series of artworks – on exhibit at Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven, with an opening reception Feb. 21 – are filled with repeated usages of that hateful word: painted, collaged,...

            What Else Is Onstage? 'The Crucible' At CT Rep; 'Ada/Ava' at Wesleyan

            There are lots of reasons to revisit Arthur Miller’s retelling of the Salem Witch Trials, “The Crucible.” McCarthyism and other political witch-hunts — the metaphorical underpinning of Miller’s play — are a hot topic again.

            Ooh, la la. It’s hardly a surprise that it’s the French who coined the term, “après-ski” considering they’re among some of the first Europeans to have widely embraced the sport back in the 1900s. “After ski,” as it translates, describes the imbibing, merriment, and social activities that follow...

            With the arrival of November comes colder weather and the first flakes of snow, officially kicking off ski season.
