Work, and Play
A photo essay.
The “Game On!” theme of this year’s City-Wide Open Studios has meant lots of games to play, especially last weekend at the Goffe Street Armory.
See and hear Langston Hughes’s musical poem Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz performed by spoken-word artist Kenyon Adams and the Ron McCurdy Quartet, with imagery from the Harlem Renaissance. Learn more →
Actually, attending Armory Weekend was itself a game, with levels (literally), power-ups (snacks in some rooms) and a mission: to see if you could see it all.

For me, even six hours of gameplay wasn’t enough to get there, but it was enough to put together the largest photo essay we’ve ever published.
On Oct. 27, the Eli Whitney Museum’s Annual Meeting hosts Audubon CT’s Important Bird Area coordinator Corrie Folsom-O’Keefe and the exquisite bird images of documentary photographer Gilles Carter. RSVP here →
