Tuesday, December 27—Community Days invites you to join Hugh Leeman for Transformative Featherworks in the Ancient Americas. Hummingbirds, poems, and plays will pull us into the magical mythology of Meso-America. We will find the duality that permeated Pre-Colombian society's worldview. Through the beauty of birds and the accompanying terror vested in Aztec origin myths, we will amplify our perspective of art's power as Featherworks come to a confluence with Christianity and colonization.

Tuesday, January 3—Community Days invites you to join Carol Salus, Professor Emerita, Kent State University for The Beautiful and Ugly Sides of Degas: The Dreyfus Affair. In this presentation various beautiful paintings and sculptures by the Impressionist artist are shown along with a discussion of the decline of his family. Degas came from a banking family and when their assets fell, he blamed the Rothschilds and other Jewish bankers. Simultaneously with the discussion of Degas we will look at developments in the case against Dreyfus and how Degas turned against his closest Jewish friends.

Tuesday, January 17—Community Days invites you to join Brian Rose for From Carson to Oprah to Stephen Colbert: A History of the TV Talk Show. From its start in the early 1950s, the talk show has been one of television’s most versatile and durable formats. Pioneering programs like Today, Person-to-Person, and Tonight established the basic features that have guided the format ever since, particularly the importance of the host as the chief focus of the proceedings. Whether it was the sophisticated wit of Dick Cavett, the magnetic empathy of Oprah Winfrey, the innovative comedy of David Letterman, or the sharp political satire of Jon Stewart, the talk show has continued to provide viewers with a lively mix of entertainment, information, and compelling conversation. This presentation will look at the fascinating history of the television talk show and examine its changing appeal from decade to decade.
