  • * Warwick Working Together:  a growing number of leaders are exploring ways to bring people together, across differences, to work through issues of diversity.  On Tuesday, March 20 at 6:00pm, join us to discover how our diverse experiences have shaped us, divided us, and linked us. Through dialogue, we may come to understand each other better and begin to find ways to move toward a more perfect union.  Beverly Braxton will moderate the discussion.  Register here.

    * Hudson River Art Lecture:  join us on Wednesday, March 21 at 6:30pm for an illuminating lecture on Thomas Cole and the art of the Hudson River School.  The Hudson River School was a mid-19th century American art movement embodied by a group of landscape painters whose aesthetic vision was influenced by romanticism, and whose paintings reflect three themes of 19th century America: discovery, exploration, and settlement. This discussion explores its founder, Thomas Cole, as well as Church and Durand, and the importance of European masters Turner and Constable.  An excellent primer for visiting the Thomas Cole exhibit currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of ArtRegister here.
