Songwriters in the round volume 2

Needs a location

The Sunday songwriters in the round continues with Daniel Young, David Burchfield, Alicia Stockman, and M. Horton Smith. It will be another wonderful Sunday evening.

We have a couple fire pits, and some space heaters, but bring your blankets and camp chairs, it may get chilly.

BYOB, and please drink responsibly. Feel free to bring something to share or something to throw on the grill. Kids are always welcome, and my kids will be there this time. We start gathering about 6pm and music starts at 7.

Come socialize, make new friends, and support local music. This may be the last show of the year, but if weather permits we may do another songwriters Sunday in November.

Nazi Thieves, Looted Art, and Stolen Legacies

Online event

Dazzling art, dubious dealers, and greedy Nazi leaders eager to convey an air of grandeur and power. That’s only part of the story behind one of the greatest thefts in history. The Nazi plot to strip Jews of their art, furnishings, and even objects of little value was a sign of their greater ambition—to destroy a people and rewrite history.

Watch live to learn about some of the victims and perpetrators—and a mole who secretly documented the theft and hiding places of priceless art.
