Contemporary R&B artist Vivian Green’s heartfelt voice comes from being raised in a home where Motown classics were always blaring. She spent her teenage years performing in some of Philadelphia’s premier jazz clubs and singing backup for Jill Scott—and at 17, she co-wrote the song “Dear God” on Boyz II Men’s platinum 1997 album Evolution. Fast forward several years and her sultry vocals and seductive disco-funk sounds have fully matured, as evidenced by her fifth album, 2015’s Vivian. She brings a fresh and energized spirit to bear on her signature mellifluous jams.

The exhibition explores the confluence of art, love, science, and religion in the extraordinary art of Orra White Hitchcock, one of America’s first female scientific illustrators. Her marriage in 1821 to Amherst College professor Edward Hitchcock cemented a years-long friendship and collaboration based on a bedrock of faith and science, mutual respect, close observation, and mental capacity for the largest of ideas. Orra White exhibited a prodigious scientific mind and abundant artistic talent at an early age. The exhibition traces her development from schoolgirl projects to highly accomplished renderings of the natural scenery of the Connecticut River Valley used in her husband’s many geology publications. Less well known are colorful paintings on cotton—some more than twelve feet long—that were used to illustrate her husband’s many college lectures on geology, botany, zoology, and anatomy. In these, Orra White Hitchcock communicated complex scientific principles in abstract visual terms that now appear gorgeously fresh and modern.

King Richard the Second is a history play by William Shakespeare believed to have been written in approximately 1595. It is based on the life of King Richard II of England (ruled 1377–1399) and is the first part of a tetralogy, referred to by some scholars as the Henriad, followed by three plays concerning Richard's successors: Henry IV, Part 1; Henry IV, Part 2; and Henry V.

Vox Aquarum performs works by father of the famous astronomer Galileo Galilei, Vincenzo Galilei and Monteverdi. Vincenzo Galile was a noted lutenist and composer in the later 16C. A member of the Florentine Camerata, Galilei’s works often anticipate Monteverdi’s seconda pratica, as evidenced by the solo bass monodies “Si gioioso mi fanno” and “Se ben di sette stelle.” Claudio Monteverdi is a composer of both secular and sacred music, and a pioneer in the development of opera, he is considered a crucial transitional figure between the Renaissance and the Baroque periods of music history. Vox Aquarum is a vocal quartet. It's members share equally a dedication toward expanding appreciation for vocal chamber music. They are: Katrina Montagna, soprano; Chelsea Laggan, alto; Matthew Koraus, tenor and continuo organ; Brian Goff, bass; Christopher Morrongiello, lute and chitarrone.

Yejide and Akin have been married since they met and fell in love at university. Though many expected Akin to take several wives, he and Yejide have always agreed: polygamy is not for them. But four years into their marriage -- after consulting fertility doctors and healers, trying strange teas and unlikely cures -- Yejide is still not pregnant. She assumes she still has time until her family arrives on her doorstep with a young woman they introduce as Akin's second wife. Ayobami Adebay was listed by the Financial Times as one of the bright stars of Nigerian literature. The New York Times has described Adébáyọ̀ as "an exceptional storyteller", adding: "She writes not just with extraordinary grace but with genuine wisdom about love and loss and the possibility of redemption. She has written a powerfully magnetic and heartbreaking book."

When I Was Puerto Rican is a 1993 autobiography by Puerto Rican native Esmeralda Santiago. It is the first of three installments, followed by Almost a Woman and The Turkish Lover. This first book begins by describing Santiago's life in Macún, Puerto Rico. It details the circumstances that led to her mother bringing her and her siblings to New York. The second part of the book describes Santiago's initial adjustment to life in America. The memoir closes with Santiago's audition to New York's Performing Arts High School. Esmeralda Santiago's writing career evolved from her work as a writer of documentary and educational films. Her essays and opinion pieces have appeared in national newspapers including the New York Times and the Boston Globe, and on mass market magazines like House & Garden, Metropolitan Home, and Good Housekeeping. Upon publication of her first book, When I was Puerto Rican, she was hailed as "a welcome new voice, full of passion and authority," by the Washington Post Book World.

Opening Reception |


A group exhibition exploring density and layeredness through a perspective of compression (as opposed to expansion). As images and information in our media-infused lives have increased in speed and volume, an expanding experience of simultaneity has seemed to follow, with events, news, and history co-existing in the crowded moment. The works of Ryan McLaughlin, Zach Nader, Ferdinand Penker, and Emma Webster reflect this compressed quality of information, whether through reference, layering, and exposure, as in Nader’s, McLaughlin’s, and Webster’s work in painting and video or through the almost reference-less, self-reflexive, and precise works on paper of Penker, his marks altogether suggestive of much time spent at work. Structured and suffused as they may be, there is a balance, a sense of entrance, and a quality of pleasure to all of these works; they project their density as uniquely spirited

Opening Reception |


Marie Tomanova: Young American does not directly problematize what it means to be an American today, but celebrates the freedom and identity of the idea of an “America” still rife with dreams and possibilities, hope and freedom. Her images, direct and without artifice, confront us with the power and beauty of people simply being, the young … just being. It is a visualization of an America in which individuality is valued as uniqueness, and not judged as lack of sameness.

Maestro Francesco Santoro will talk about Caravaggio (1571-1610).

Over the years, Santoro exhibited his work in many places, including Gallery of the Torcello, Venice, Quadrennial of Milan, the Royal Palace of Naples.
