Earth Day 2021
Preserving Spring
UPCYCLED ART
We need small, working, microwave ovens.
Our Workshops will move outside this Summer. We will explore our site’s beauty with new tools. Microwave ingenuity can infuse the 19th Century art of pressing flowers and leaves with 21st Century expediency. Young hands can preserve nature’s delicate colors and architecture for 
study and creative construction.
.
We need donations of small microwave ovens. 
Baked on splatters are of no concern.
Your kitchen-worn wonder will find new life and artistry.
Donate your tired Microwave oven to the Museum to see an old art form emerge in just minutes. If your basement looks like this, let us know and we’ll be happy to help you downsize.
Contact Kiran Zaman via email or call the Museum (203-777-1833). You can drop off any day between 9 and 5.

PUBLIC ART: TWO OPPORTUNITIES TO PAINT

State & Bradley Mural: Sign-up to paint!

On Saturday/Sunday May 1 & 2, we will prime the walls and on Saturday/Sunday, May 15 & 16, we will fill in the outline that our terrific local artists (Alex and Annika) will sketch out post-priming. (I am guessing we’ll end up tacking on a few extra painting days for final touches!) This article shows some of the images for the mural.

This is the link to the volunteer sign-up sheet.

We need lots of volunteers and no artistic skills are needed. Kids are very welcome to help! We have to limit the number of people per shift due to COVID restrictions, but you’ll see there are lots of shifts throughout the day each day. Just let me know if you have any questions. And a giant thanks to John Martin for all his amazing organizing work on this project!

Intersection to Connection: The wonderfully creative crosswalk painting at Chapel and State Streets and Chapel and Union Avenue that is part of the Intersection to Connection project is scheduled for April 24-25 & May 1–2. Last week I said there would not be volunteer opportunities, but Town Green has decided that there is room for 35 volunteers to help paint over the course of the weekends.

Here is the link to sign-up!

 

Many thanks to New Haven Alder Abby Roth for sharing the above information!

Be Like Kate – Stay Home for the Oscars!

oscar png

Katharine Hepburn may have been nominated twelve times and continues to hold the record for Best Actress Oscars with four wins, but she never attended a ceremony to receive them. This year we’ll all ‘be like Kate’ by safely watching from home and celebrating the occasion with the Kate’s Oscar Night Party in a Box!

***
red box icon

Included in each custom Kate Oscar Party Box, which serves up to 2 people, are:

Heat and eat appetizers from Pasta Vita- Gourmet to Go: 4 artichoke and parmesan stuffed mushrooms, 2 risotto balls with prosciutto & fontina cheese, and 4 mini beef wellingtons.
Charcuterie Box from Fromage Fine Foods & Coffee: Sliced salami, crackers, and two cheeses.
Sweet Delights from Pursuit of Pastry: Two of their famous Chocolate Bombs.
Two ready-to-make cocktails from Penny Lane Pub: French 75 with Carpene Malvolti Prosecco, Beefeater Rose Gin, Lemon juice and simple syrup.
Two Kate Oscar branded stemless Prosecco flutes.
One Orville Redenbacher’s Movie Theater Popcorn Tub to pop at home.
Your custom Oscar ballot and other party favors.
And a Gift Card to Ashlawn Farm Coffee to caffeinate the morning after the Oscars!

With your Party in a Box purchase, you’ll also be able to join us for a pre-Oscar broadcast special message, watch a quick lesson in mixing the signature drink with Penny Lane Pub mixologists, participate in an online Oscar Ballot game, and bid on exciting items in an online auction. As the Academy Awards broadcast gets underway, the Kate will continue to engage guests watching from home with film trivia and other announcements via social media.

Presented by the Kate’s Volunteer Guild, proceeds from this fundraiser will support quality performing arts and cultural presentations and education programs at the Kate.

Cost per box is $100

($26 is tax-deductible)

*We’ll send you a reminder, but box pickup will be 12pm to 2:30pm on Oscar Sunday- April 25, 2021 at the Kate. We’ll deliver it right to your vehicle!
