Please join us for the reception on Thursday, March 19, at The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook. This is a free EVENT.

The upcoming issue focuses on Connecticut celebrities from stage, screen, and the art world and you can meet authors of two articles in the magazine. Theater historian Martha LoMonaco, professor at Fairfield University, wrote “American Theater in a Humble Connecticut Barn,” which examines the parade of stars and Broadway-bound hits that played at the Westport County Playhouse. Kristen Nietering from Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation penned “Connecticut as a Magnet for Modern Artists,” which explores Connecticut as a magnet for modern writers and artists, including photographer Edward Steichen and sculptorAlexander Calder. We will be joined by special guest Tim Sullivan, Deputy Commissioner, Department of Economic and Community Development, andElizabeth Normen, publisher of Connecticut Explored.
