The last minute of the last hour of the last day of Activity Committee
Potluck and listening party!!
Everyone is invited to this event, the last event of Activity Committee. Whether you are a longtime regular or are just visiting for the first time, stop by and eat with us, dance with us, and be with us for a little while…please bring a dish to share.
Surprise Committee! First we played frisbee out on the lawn with paper plates glued together to make the frisbee, you can see it sitting on the table. Then we made up a game using the gambling wheel rescued from the upstairs of the Freedman Home, using dice and bottle caps. We also made card houses, and played crazy eights, war, spit, gin, and 52 pickup.
Sculpture Committee with ESL students from many countries, including Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Ivory Coast, Bangladesh, Senegal and French Guiana. Some people had done sand casting before with a material different from plaster, in their home villages.

In considering the theme of the preservation of the history of a place, one can’t help but think of the objects that inhabit spaces and act as artifacts for a specific time period.
The Sculpture Committee invites guests of the Andrew Freedman Home to create sand molds of precious objects, which we will cast in plaster, in order to create a record of their existence.
With Edwin González-Ojeda and Carmen Julia Hernández.
Lenny taught me two-handed solitaire yesterday after he caught me playing Klondike. But is two-handed solitaire really solitaire? - Laura

Bruce’s paintings, in the hallway adjacent to Activity Committee’s headquarters, rely on reflection to superimpose formal wear on passerby. An unexpected view.
