Prison Arts Program Exhibit @ Russell Library
Sep 26 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Prison Arts Program Exhibit @ Russell Library | Middletown | Connecticut | United States

This is the seventh annual ‘alumni’ exhibition hosted by the Russell Library! CPA’s Prison Arts Program is proud to continue to work with inmates upon their release, and equally proud to note their continued artistic endeavors and accomplishments. This year’s show features the work of artists who have been out of prison for over a decade as well as artists who were released just this year. Materials and media vary widely and may include paint, pencil and welded steel…
The struggle is not over for an inmate upon his or her release, in fact, it is often just beginning. The transition from one physical place and mindset to another, usually vastly different, can be unpredictable and difficult to manage – for the inmate, their loved ones and for programs such as the Prison Arts Program.
This exhibition continues a collaboration between the Community Partners in Action Prison Arts Program and Russell Library.

Swallow Migration Paddle @ Black Hall Outfitters
Sep 26 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Calling all bird watchers, eco-enthusiasts and paddle lovers, the swallow migration is coming and we have the best sport to view them. If you have not experience the swallow migration and are in the area, you must. The Tree Swallow makes its annual migration this time of year and chooses a small island near the mouth of the Connecticut River to collect before their long journey south. As you paddle behind Goose Island, a few swallows will start flying overhead, it just appears to be normal as birds are everywhere in Old Lyme. Suddenly, you are engulfed by more than 300,000 swallows. They fly, dive, and swarm all around you as you sit back and take it all in. The Tree Swallows will give you a performance as they do a dance, in and out of the reeds, before one dives in and they all follow. This is a truly phenomenal experience that Mother Nature provides and words cannot fully depict what it is like to experience it in the still waters on a kayak or paddle board. We are thrilled to be able to show you just how amazing it is. Call today to book your tour.

The release of Ode To Heroes, via Harmonia Mundi/Jazz Village, marks the arrival of a rising star on the modern vocal jazz scene. The album mainly features her engaging original compositions, along with vibrant takes on jazz standards like Shorter’s “Footprints,” Mingus’ “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat,” and Desmond and Dave Brubeck’s “Take 5.” Most importantly, it spotlights Alexa’s ability to engage in rewarding and illuminating conversation with some of the music’s most renowned and forward-thinking players.

Bushnell Park Carousel @ Bushnell Park
Sep 30 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

It’s a sweet surprise to find a vintage 1914 carousel standing in Bushnell Park. There, by the shadow of skyscrapers and a giant Turkey Oak, a 24-sided pavilion houses 48 hand-carved wooden horses and two lovers’ chariots that swirl around a booming Wurlitzer band organ.

The Knox Foundation brought the carousel to Hartford from Canton, Ohio, in 1974. Jack Dollard, director of the Foundation at the time, and an architect in the city, thought the horses would symbolize Hartford’s restoration.

Then Tracey Cameron, a Hartford resident, spent more than a year restoring the horses to reflect the same fury that Russian immigrants Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein first carved into their faces in 1914. Mass production and changing tastes led to the demise of hand carving and now collectors, buying up single horses, have dismantled hundreds of carousels. As a result, this carousel is only one of three Stein and Goldstein carousels left in existence.

CT Civilian Conservation Corps Camps: History, Memories; Legacy of the CCC @ Russell Library
Sep 30 @ 1:00 pm

‘Connecticut Civilian Conservation Corps Camps: Supervised by WWI Officers’
Saturday, September 30, 1:00pm. The Hubbard Room, Russell Library, 123 Broad Street, Middletown. Local author and historian Marty Podskoch will give a Power Point presentation on his new book Connecticut Civilian Conservation Corps Camps: History, Memories & Legacy of the CCC, which focuses on WWI officers who supervised the camps. Under President Roosevelt’s ‘New Deal,’ the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) began in 1933 to relieve the poverty and unemployment of the Depression. Twenty-one camps were set up in Connecticut towns, state parks and forests, often supervised by Army officers who had served in WWI. Workers built trails, roads, campsites and dams, stocked fish, built and maintained fire tower observers’ cabins and telephone lines, fought fires, and planted millions of trees. The CCC disbanded in 1942 due to the need for men in WWII.
Marty Podskoch is a retired teacher, the author of seven other books and a weekly column called ‘Adirondack Stories’ which appears in five Adirondack newspapers. Presently, he is conducting research on the CCC camps in Rhode Island. He is keenly interested in meeting individuals who may have CCC stories to contribute to his next book. All of his books will be available for sale and signing after the presentation

Swallow Migration Paddle @ Black Hall Outfitters
Sep 30 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Calling all bird watchers, eco-enthusiasts and paddle lovers, the swallow migration is coming and we have the best sport to view them. If you have not experience the swallow migration and are in the area, you must. The Tree Swallow makes its annual migration this time of year and chooses a small island near the mouth of the Connecticut River to collect before their long journey south. As you paddle behind Goose Island, a few swallows will start flying overhead, it just appears to be normal as birds are everywhere in Old Lyme. Suddenly, you are engulfed by more than 300,000 swallows. They fly, dive, and swarm all around you as you sit back and take it all in. The Tree Swallows will give you a performance as they do a dance, in and out of the reeds, before one dives in and they all follow. This is a truly phenomenal experience that Mother Nature provides and words cannot fully depict what it is like to experience it in the still waters on a kayak or paddle board. We are thrilled to be able to show you just how amazing it is. Call today to book your tour.

Bushnell Park Carousel @ Bushnell Park
Oct 1 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

It’s a sweet surprise to find a vintage 1914 carousel standing in Bushnell Park. There, by the shadow of skyscrapers and a giant Turkey Oak, a 24-sided pavilion houses 48 hand-carved wooden horses and two lovers’ chariots that swirl around a booming Wurlitzer band organ.

The Knox Foundation brought the carousel to Hartford from Canton, Ohio, in 1974. Jack Dollard, director of the Foundation at the time, and an architect in the city, thought the horses would symbolize Hartford’s restoration.

Then Tracey Cameron, a Hartford resident, spent more than a year restoring the horses to reflect the same fury that Russian immigrants Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein first carved into their faces in 1914. Mass production and changing tastes led to the demise of hand carving and now collectors, buying up single horses, have dismantled hundreds of carousels. As a result, this carousel is only one of three Stein and Goldstein carousels left in existence.

Bushnell Park Carousel @ Bushnell Park
Oct 7 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

It’s a sweet surprise to find a vintage 1914 carousel standing in Bushnell Park. There, by the shadow of skyscrapers and a giant Turkey Oak, a 24-sided pavilion houses 48 hand-carved wooden horses and two lovers’ chariots that swirl around a booming Wurlitzer band organ.

The Knox Foundation brought the carousel to Hartford from Canton, Ohio, in 1974. Jack Dollard, director of the Foundation at the time, and an architect in the city, thought the horses would symbolize Hartford’s restoration.

Then Tracey Cameron, a Hartford resident, spent more than a year restoring the horses to reflect the same fury that Russian immigrants Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein first carved into their faces in 1914. Mass production and changing tastes led to the demise of hand carving and now collectors, buying up single horses, have dismantled hundreds of carousels. As a result, this carousel is only one of three Stein and Goldstein carousels left in existence.

From July 6, 1974 through July 1, 2016, Garrison Keillor created and hosted one of the most popular radio variety shows of all time, A Prairie Home Companion, for some 3.5 million listeners on 700 public radio stations coast to coast and beyond. His many books include Lake Wobegon Days, The Book of Guys, Pilgrims: A Wobegon Romance, Guy Noir and the Straight Skinny, and The Keillor Reader (Viking). In 2006, Keillor played himself in the movie adaptation of his show, a film directed by Robert Altman.

For more than four decades now, Robin & Linda Williams have made it their mission to perform the music that they love, a robust blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country that combines wryly observant lyrics with a wide-ranging melodicism. As live performers they are second to none. But as gifted songwriters their original songs have been covered by such country music greats as Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall, George Hamilton IV, Tim & Mollie O’Brien, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea and The Seldom Scene.

Swallow Migration Paddle @ Black Hall Outfitters
Oct 9 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Calling all bird watchers, eco-enthusiasts and paddle lovers, the swallow migration is coming and we have the best sport to view them. If you have not experience the swallow migration and are in the area, you must. The Tree Swallow makes its annual migration this time of year and chooses a small island near the mouth of the Connecticut River to collect before their long journey south. As you paddle behind Goose Island, a few swallows will start flying overhead, it just appears to be normal as birds are everywhere in Old Lyme. Suddenly, you are engulfed by more than 300,000 swallows. They fly, dive, and swarm all around you as you sit back and take it all in. The Tree Swallows will give you a performance as they do a dance, in and out of the reeds, before one dives in and they all follow. This is a truly phenomenal experience that Mother Nature provides and words cannot fully depict what it is like to experience it in the still waters on a kayak or paddle board. We are thrilled to be able to show you just how amazing it is. Call today to book your tour.
