  4. The Clock in the Painting: Art Lecture by Bob Frishman

    October 23, 2019, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM @ MHL - The Hall

    Bob Frishman of Bell-Time Clocks has been collecting fine art images which have a clock for many years. From Van Gogh to Dali, Titian, Homer, Magritte, Hopper and Rockwell, these artworks are often familiar to art lovers but have not often been viewed from this perspective. Bob will show images from the past 500 years and discuss the history of clocks. Bob has repaired, restored and sold antique clocks for more than thirty-eight years. In 1992, he founded Bell-Time Clocks, named after a Harper's Weekly engraving by Winslow Homer depicting New England mill buildings and workers. Having scaled back his repair and selling activities, he now devotes most of his time to research, writing, lecturing, and conference organizing. He created and organized the 2017 Horology in Art symposium at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.

  6. Courageous Conversations: White Fragility

    October 24, 2019, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ MHL - The Hall

    In her groundbreaking and timely book, White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism, antiracist educator, Robin DiAngelo, deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility. Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. DiAngelo explores how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively. The program will begin with a short video of Robin DiAngelo talking about white fragility, followed by a facilitated discussion led by Gail Forsyth-Vail of the Unitarian Universalist Association. All are welcome, even if they've not read the book. A collaboration of Memorial Hall Library, Courageous Conversations, North Parish Racial Justice Team and Showing Up for Racial Justice.
