Join Us for The Art of Engagement
Thursday, January 21 2021, 7:00-8:30 PM
Join Ellyn Weiss, ’69, artist, independent curator and activist on a journey of over 20 years of engaged art practice that draws on her previous 25-year experience as an environmental lawyer and engages with the critical issues of our times – climate change and political fault lines.
The talk will use images of Weiss’s work, including individual artworks, collaborative installations with from two to three hundred artists and the co-founding of an artists’ collective dedicated to using visual communication skills to defend the values critical to our democracy and more. Weiss also will cover ‘Zeitgeist,’ a series of exhibitions she curated with a long-time collaborator. Each is focused on an issue of particular moment, including pervasive surveillance, digital information overload, the election of our first African American president.

Join the League of Women Voters at a virtual Off-Broadway production of Tea for Three. Tea for Three is a one-woman show about three of our First Ladies: Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, and Betty Ford. Each character is portrayed by Emmy Award-winning actress Elaine Bromka '72, with over thirty years in film, television, Broadway, and Off-Broadway. She starred as eight First Ladies opposite Rich Little in the PBS show The Presidents. Intrigued by their stories, she went on with playwright Eric H. Weinberger to create this one-woman show.

Pecan Sales: A Smith Tradition
For more than sixty years, Smith College clubs around the country have been selling Georgia pecans at holiday time to raise money for college scholarships. Dorothy Lobrano Guth '50 started this fundraising effort for the New York Smith Club about fifty years ago.
The NYC Club continues to offer the three most popular selections: Mammoth halves, milk-chocolate-covered, and dark-chocolate-covered. Additional varieties (such as cinnamon, glazed, or clusters) are available by special request.
These pecans make a wonderful treat all year long and as always, the net proceeds go to the Smith Scholarship Fund! Scroll down for the store link and order yours today!
