RIGGED: The Voter Suppression Playbook

Wednesday, August 21, 7pm

First Presbyterian Church / McKinley Hall
50 Liberty Street, Beacon

Narrated by Jeffrey Wright, Rigged chronicles how our right to vote is being undercut by a decade of dirty tricks – including the partisan use of gerrymandering and voter purges, and the gutting of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court. The film captures real-time voter purges in North Carolina and voter intimidation in Texas. (more info)

Footloose

Friday, August 23 7:30

Beacon High School
101 Matteawan Avenue, Beacon

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 17 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

Adults $12 | Students 18 and under $5

Collaborative Concepts Farm Project 2019 | Cows, Sculpture, Migration and more!!!

Opening Reception: August 31
Mid Run Reception: September. 22
On View through October 27 | Free to the Public

853 Old Albany Post Road,
Garrison, NY

Collaborative Concepts is all about Large Sculptural Art Works; think Storm King, but with a herd of cattle! The combination of the two makes a great interaction of animals with art.

Experimental art is encouraged. The result of combining art with animals, however, is hard to predict. It never creates repetition, only surprises and discoveries of how the two interact with each other. The cows have been great critics of the sculptures each year, having favorites and some that they serenade. (more…)
