Creative Arts Workshop, 80 Audubon Street, New Haven
2014 Arts Awards Luncheon - Reservation Deadline Monday
The Arts Council of Greater New Haven is excited to
announce the winners of the 2014 Arts Awards, the
theme for which is “Small City, Big Art,” a nod to
creativity’s ability to transcend geography and offer
boundless inspiration.
With her compelling documentaries, Emmy Awardwinning filmmaker Karyl Evans has masterfully
shared with us stories of the extraordinary treasures
and institutions that have contributed so much to the
region’s rich cultural history.
Through her work at the Elm City Dance Collective
and elsewhere, dancer, choreographer, and educator
Kellie Ann Lynch has invigorated the local dance
community, challenging both the artists with whom
she shares the stage and those who experience the
yield of her expression.
For decades, arts champion Barbara Pearce has
promoted New Haven as a small city whose cultural offerings make it much larger,
contributing her time, energy, and impassioned leadership to beloved organizations while
insisting that each institution’s strength bolsters the health of the region’s cultural ecology.
Winfred Rembert’s artwork, practiced and developed in the harshness of a Georgia
prison cell, recalls his often brutal experiences as an African American man in the Deep
South, providing for us not just a glimpse into the darkness of our nation’s history, but the
story of one man’s courageous journey toward a brighter future.
Coordinated by Peter Noble, Pequenas Ligas Hispanas de New Haven is an
organization that serves as a bridge to important cultural experiences, connecting young
people who might otherwise not have access to the arts with programs that foster
creativity and greatly enhance lives.
C. Newton Schenck III Award for Lifetime Achievement in and Contribution to the Arts
Having literally changed the skylines of cities around the world, architect Cesar Pelli’s
presence in New Haven has inspired us to look up, to think big, and to celebrate the
visionary work that happens in our small city each and every day.
The 2014 Arts Awards luncheon is scheduled for Friday, December 5, at 11:45 a.m.,
at the New Haven Lawn Club, 193 Whitney Ave., in New Haven. Ticket prices are $85 for
Arts Council Members, $100 for Non-Members. For more information and to purchase
tickets, call the Arts Council at (203) 772-2788 or email [email protected]
More Than A Face at the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery
The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents
More Than a Face, a group show in the Sumner
McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery, 70 Audubon Street, 2
FL, New Haven. The exhibition is curated by
Marissa Rozanski and features artwork by Corina
Alvarezdelugo, Janice Bielawa, Jessica Cuni,
Anne Doris-Eisner, Oi Fortin, Barbara Hocker,
Fethi Meghelli, Irene K. Miller and Thuan Vu. More
Than a Face will be on view from November 19,
2014 – January 2, 2015. A public reception will
take place on November 20 from 5 p.m. to 7
p.m.
Curator Marissa Rozanski says, “This group show
will display works of self-portraiture that do not
depict the face. It is arguable that all works of art
Anne Doris-Eisner
are reflections of the artist’s identity, whether or not the physical body of the artist is
shown. More Than A Face aims to reinterpret the ideas of self-portraiture by highlighting
the symbols used in works of art that speak to the nature of the artist just as much as, if
not more than the face of the artist.”
For more information about More Than a Face please contact the Arts Council at (203)
772-2788.
Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery, a program of the Arts Council of Greater New
Haven, is located at the Arts Council offices at 70 Audubon Street, 2nd floor. The gallery

Shaping Humanity with John Gurche
Thursday, November 20 at 5:30 pm
Free admission
Book signing to follow
Artist John Gurche's new book, Shaping Humanity, focuses on his work for the
Smithsonian's new Hall of Human Origins. The fossil record has shown that human
evolution has not been a process where all of the features we consider human evolved
slowly together in tandem. Instead, some of these features evolved early in human history
and some quite late. This means that each of our ancestors has its own story to tell about
what it added to the human picture. Making sculpture that reflected the adaptive milieu of
each species of human ancestor was Gurche's task, and he details the discussions,
backroom debates and stop-the-presses

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The Colonial Concert is coming! On Saturday, November 29 at 8 P.M.,
the estimable Orchestra New England will present its annual "Concert of Mufick" in the
style of the time of the Revolutionary War. This is the 35th year of a tradition that brings

century. The concert will be held at the historic United Church on the Green at the corner
of Temple and Elm Streets in New Haven. The orchestra and soloists will be attired fully in

New Haven Improvisers Collective Presents ELECTRONHIC
Date: Saturday, November 22nd, 2014
Time: 8:30 and 10pm
Cost: $15
Place: Firehouse12, 45 Crown St, New Haven, CT (203) 785-0468
http://firehouse12.com/events.asp?id=176562&seriesid=1111
The New Haven Improvisers Collective present their annual performance at worldrenowned performance space, recording studio, and New Haven treasure, Firehouse12.
The concert marks the 10th year in a row that NHIC has showcased new music at
Firehouse12, beginning with a collaboration with Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris in the year
that this world-renowned New Haven Landmark opened. It celebrates the release of the
New CD and presents new music. The CD is available here: www.music.nhic-records.com
ELECTRONHIC started with a directive to keep still and leave space. The music was
allowed to present itself and breathe without being forced. Motion gradually crept in and
flourished with rhythms and energetic counterpoint, but plenty of open space remained.
Space is especially evident in the exploratory opener EN and the moody GBR, but it
remains an important element hidden in the avant-rock of Desiccant Highs.
ELECTRONHIC is a driven by the low tones of the Chapman Stick and rhythmic drums,
along with comments, noise, saxophones, theremin, guitars, and the Great Bass
Recorder.

Film screening: Mon., Nov. 24, 7 PM, $5
"Babette's Feast"
The film series in collaboration with Temple Beth
Sholom, "A Rabbi, A Priest and A Minister Walk Into Best
Video Performance Space," features powerful films with
the theme of religion and society. In this simple yet
sumptuous Oscar winning film, two beautiful daughters of
a devout, self-denying clergyman carry on his austere
teachings by sacrificing their youth and passion to faith
and duty. That is, until the arrival of Babette, a
mysterious refugee from France’s civil war. This film will
raise issues of art and duty, self-indulgence and selfdenial, asking the question: can or should there be a
balance?
Film Screening: Thurs., Nov. 20, 7 PM, $5
"Seven Days in May"
“Seven Days In May” (1964), which stars Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas, is a historic,
perhaps prophetic film. In director John Frankenheimer’s thriller, Frederic March plays a
president targeted for removal from office by a Pentagon clique because he is seen as
“soft on Communism,” a description applied to President John F. Kennedy in right-wing
circles at the height of the Cold War. Christopher Sharrett, a Professor of Film Studies at
Seton Hall University will introduce and discuss the film.
Wed., Nov. 19, 8 PM, $5 cover
Songwriters' Circle: Mark Mirando, Dick Neal, Laura Joy
Mark Mirando started his music career in New Haven Connecticut playing in the legendary
“Dogs”, a group that was well know for their originals as well as carefully chosen, well
crafted covers. Dick Neal is a student of music, songwriting, record production, and live
performance. A multi-instrumentalist (guitar, 5-string banjo, mandolin, dobro, slide), he has
been privileged to make a living as a musician and to work in a wide variety of musical
settings and styles. Chicago-based singer-songwriter Laura Joy draws comparisons that
range from Joni Mitchell to Alison Krauss. Laura’s percussive finger picking and buoyant
voice have graced audiences from as far as the Sun Belt to the streets of Manhattan.
Fri., Nov. 21, 8 PM, $5 cover
Singer-Songwriters: Becky Kessler (of Violent Mae), Sam Perduta (of Elison Jackson)
Becky Kessler has scored plaudits for her work fronting the duo Violent Mae (with Floyd
Kellogg) while Sam Perduta has won acclaim as the songwriter and frontman for the band
Elison Jackson. Violent Mae won Best New Band at the 2013 Connecticut Music Awards
and was recently honored by The Deli Magazine as one of New England’s Top Emerging
Artists. Elison Jackson's EP “I Do Believe She Flew Out The Drainpipe,” which came out
in 2012, received a rave review on CT.com from Chip McCabe as “hands down one of the
best things you’ll hear out of the CT music scene this year.”

Performance of Twelfth Night
If Collaboration be the Food of Love
Elm Shakespeare Company, Co-Op High School, and SCSU join forces for Twelfth Night
How many New Haven institutions does it take to put on a Shakespeare play? The Elm
Shakespeare Company presents Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare and directed by
Artistic Director James Andreassi as part of Co-Op High School’s Co-Op After School
program. Participants include cast and crew from Co-Op High School and designers from
SCSU’s theatre department. Support from Dwight Hall at Yale and the Shubert Theater
round out the list of partners for this first-time collaboration.
“This is a one-of-a kind experience for our students to immerse themselves in the world of
professional theatre,” says Co-Op After School Program Director Kjerstin Pugh. “I’m
working with these Co-Op and SCSU students the same way as my Elm Shakespeare
team,” adds Andreassi. “Everyone involved is top-notch. I can’t wait for New Haven to see
this show!”
Performances are November 21 and 22 at 2:30pm and 7pm in the Mainstage Theater
at Co-Op High School (177 College St, New Haven, CT) and tickets are available at the
door.
Picasso at the Lapin Agile at Long Wharf Theatre
Long Wharf Theatre, under the leadership of Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein and
Managing Director Joshua Borenstein and in association with Jonathan Reinis
Productions and Stephen Eich, presents Steve Martin’s Picasso at the Lapin Agile,
directed by Edelstein, running November 26 through December 21, 2014 on the Claire
Tow Stage in the C. Newton Schenck Mainstage Theatre.Tickets are $25-75.
What happens when Picasso and Einstein walk into a bar? Intellectual fireworks, verbal
gymnastics, amorous intentions, and the arrival of a mysterious man in blue suede shoes.
On an October evening in 1904, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso end up at the same
small bar in Paris - the Lapin Agile. The two young geniuses, joined by an eccentric cast
of characters, spar over art and science, their respective libidos, where inspiration comes
from, and the promise and dreams of the 20th century. Steve Martin brings his zany and
profoundly intelligent brand of humor back to Long Wharf Theatre. --– No joke is too low
brow and no idea too high brow to be considered in this crowd pleasing comedy.
For more information about Long Wharf Theatre, visit www.longwharf.org or call 203-7874282.

War at the Yale Repertory Theatre
YALE REPERTORY THEATRE (James Bundy, Artistic Director; Victoria Nolan, Managing
Director) presents the world premiere of WAR by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, directed by
Lileana Blain-Cruz, November 21–December 13 at Yale Repertory Theatre (1120 Chapel
Street).
Tensions escalate between Tate and Joanne at their mother’s hospital bedside. As they
attack each other’s smallest words and biggest choices, they are ambushed by two
strangers who make a shocking claim about their grandfather’s WWII tour of duty. WAR is
a wildly provocative, bracingly funny, and all-too-human portrait of a family navigating the
landmines of the past as they try to broker peace with each other—and themselves—in
the present.
Tickets for WAR range from $20–98 and are available online at yalerep.org, by phone at
(203) 432-1234, and in person at the Yale Rep Box Office (1120 Chapel Street). Student,
senior, and group rates are also available.
