      • A Family's Mania For Collecting: 'The Paston Treasure' At Yale Center For British Art

        A Family's Mania For Collecting: 'The Paston Treasure' At Yale Center For British Art

        In November 1662, Sir William Paston knew that he was dying. He was worried that his eldest son, Robert, and his second wife, Margaret, would fight over the family’s collection of artworks and artifacts. So Paston added a sly element to his will: Upon his death, Margaret would decide how the collection...

            '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,...

              • 'The Bodyguard' Protects Whitney Houston Legacy

                'The Bodyguard' Protects Whitney Houston Legacy

                I’ll admit to having no nostalgia for the movie on which “The Bodyguard The Musical” is based. In 1992, I was listening to grunge, punk and Swedish death metal, not Houston’s gospel-throated dance pop. I didn’t see the film until years after it was released and had forgotten most of the plot when...

                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. January marked the 65th anniversary of “The Crucible”’s debut. This year...

              • Après-Ski: The Fun Begins When The Skiing Ends At These New England Destinations

                Après-Ski: The Fun Begins When The Skiing Ends At These New England Destinations

                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...

                The Best Ways To Save A Few Bucks On New England Slopes

                With the arrival of November comes colder weather and the first flakes of snow, officially kicking off ski season. While for enthusiasts it’s the most wonderful time of the year, it also tends to be the most expensive, because for the most part, a day on the slopes doesn’t come cheap. There are,...

                When It's All About The Hotel, Not The Destination

                For many travelers, hotels are nothing more than a generic place to sleep and store their luggage while they spend their days exploring exotic locales. In some cases, however, the accommodations steal the show. From doing jail time to sleeping in a treehouse, these unique hotels and inns from New...
