  • 'Mirror Mirror' On Wadsworth's Walls

    'Mirror Mirror' On Wadsworth's Walls

    tIn the 1960s, artists were emerging from the abstract expressionism of the 1950s and were looking for new directions and inspirations. Some artists found that new direction staring right back at them: mirrors. “You have this completely abstract material, but it is also representative,” said Eileen...

      Sign-Language As Music, Poetry At NBMAA

      People who have no link to the hard-of-hearing community — no deaf relatives, friends, acquaintances, coworkers — might assume music and poetry have no place in the world of the deaf. Both art forms depend on the ability to hear the sounds of words, and recognize the words’ nuance, rhyming, cadence...

        A Fun, Risque 'Mama D' At Playhouse On The Park

        “I’m going to Connecticut and I’m taking Vixen!” Those words, uttered by Santa’s spurned spouse, provide the flimsy pretext for the flimsily attired burlesque revue “Mama D’s Christmas Stocking” at Playhouse on Park in West Haven. The lovable Mrs. Claus is encouraged to forget the old white-bearded...

        Red Wanting Blue To Play Stage One

        Red Wanting Blue has a song about falling in love listening to Jeff Buckley sing Leonard Cohen’s song “Hallelujah.” It’s probably something that a lot of listeners can relate to.

        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...

        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...

        Why Delray? A Beautiful Beach And A Bustling Avenue

        In the 1980s Delray Beach was sadly saddled with the nickname “Dullray Beach,” reflective of a reputation as a dowdy, rundown Palm Beach County ocean side Florida town full of vacant buildings, high crime, racial tension, dysfunctional politics and a crumbling infrastructure. The list of problems...
