    3-Day Trinity Exhibit 'Hijabs And Hoodies' Challenges Stereotypes

    When a wave of violence and police brutality against young African Americans occurred a few years ago, Tracy Keza was paying close attention. "Images were just being made and shared online in a way that I felt wasn't productive. ... It was just a cycle of one bad thing after another," said Keza,...

      • Paper-Cut Art Of Nikki McClure At Mystic Seaport

        Paper-Cut Art Of Nikki McClure At Mystic Seaport

        All of Nikki McClure's artworks begin with a single sheet of black paper. She cuts and cuts with an X-Acto knife until pictures emerge: lakes, skies, trees, birds, children, shacks. Some images are so delicate they flutter in their frames and barely hold on to the black paper they came from: flowers,...

          Daniel Radcliffe Live On Screen At Cinestudio

          Since the "Harry Potter" film series came to a close six years ago, Daniel Radcliffe has been a busy guy, distancing himself from the world-famous boy wizard. He's done horror, playing Igor in "Victor Frankenstein." He's done voice-over work, like on "BoJack Horseman," "Robot Chicken" and "The...

              Local H At Outer Space Ballroom

              Local H was kind of like Marcy Playground, the Nixons or Seven Mary Three —a one-hit wonder of the grunge era. But the kinds of hits that bands were cranking during the '90s were sometimes pretty unusual. Local H was doing the heavy-duo thing before the White Stripes ever came on the scene. (Not...

              A Non-Skier Finds Quaint, Quirky Fun In Vermont

              NORWICH, VT — I hate winter. Thank you, but I'll pass on the slopes, rinks and trails. The lure of cocoa at a lodge can't compare to a pina colada on a Caribbean beach in February. So the thought of spending some time recently in central Vermont filled me with the dread of winter. I like Vermont,...
