Art and architecture function as a mirror of productive society, with the most interesting impacts happening with the greater cultural shifts and technological changes. Join John McConnell for four lectures that focus on distinct periods in the history of American art that reflect society’s substantial controversy and change, when the meaning and goals of art in American life were re-imagined. Weekly topics are:
• Neoclassicism: Copley, Stuart, Bulfinch, Jefferson and the Ancient World.
• Transcending One’s Own Time: The Hudson River School.
• Rumble in the Scumble: Tonalism vs. Impressionism.
• The Great War: The Armory Show and the Chicago Tribune.
We affect our earth and our earth affects us! Join Bill as he shares his research and experience in geology. His presentation/discussion format will include a variety of topics: risks from volcanos, earthquakes, tidal waves, asteroids; impacts of arsenic and asbestos and sources of these metals and minerals; how do we address environmental contamination; causes of the changing sea levels. Dr. Mallio eared his PhD in Geochemistry from Boston University. He has worked in research mining and environmental geology since 1989. Join Bill for these four sessions to dig deeper into these fascinating topics. NOTE: Classes meet every other week.
From the end of the Second World War through the beginning of the 21st Century, the United States has supported a Western World Order underpinned by robust democratic capitalism: free trade, citizens involved government, human rights. Since the beginning of the 21st Century (some historians would argue earlier), illiberal governments have emerged, influenced by a backward-looking Russia. Many now pose a serious challenge to the Western political paradigm. How will America respond to this foreign and domestic challenge? The text for the class will be The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America by Timothy Snyder.

Inspired by the book, "Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersection of Race, Class and the Environment," we will hold a community program and conversation about environmental racism (the ways in which degradation of the earth and the marginalization of people-of-color and other communities are connected.)
This inter-generational program is part of our youth group's preparation for their climate justice service trip. You are encouraged but definitely not required to read a copy of "Justice on Earth" in advance of March 31st.

HeatSmart is a community-based initiative supported by MA Clean Energy Commission and the MA Department of Energy Resources. Winchester and Arlington will jointly provide the opportunity for residents and small business owners to learn about and purchase clean heating and cooling technologies through December 2019. The campaign will be offering cold-climate air source heat pumps (great for both heating and cooling), ground-source geothermal heat pumps, modern wood pellet boilers and rooftop solar hot water systems through vetted installers with a group-purchasing model to offer quality installations at competitive prices. This event will be an opportunity to learn more about these technologies, their benefits for energy efficiency, comfort and savings, and to hear from residents who have personal experience adopting one or more of these heating/cooling systems. For more information or questions, please see the website www.HeatSmartWinchester.com.
