  2. Fakes, Frauds, and Forgers with John G. Kreifeldt

    October 17, 2023, 11:30 AM - October 26, 2023, 12:30 PM

    Join Mr. Kreifeldt for a series of three talks to learn why 40% of the art in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is fake according to its former director, Thomas Hoving (1967–1977). Some of the reasons being, genuine works that become misattributed as something else; or works so extensively restored that little of the original remains; or works purposely made to deceive. John will examine a particularly notorious example of each of Hoving’s three types with lessons to be learned.

  4. Jazz Blessing of the Animals

    October 22, 2023, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

    Town Common Rain location: Chidley Hall (First Congregational Church)

    Please join us on the Town Common where we will swing, celebrate and give thanks for all of God’s creatures, blessing our animal companions. We welcome all pets—furry, scaly, hairy, feathery and even plush! Photos of beloved pet companions are welcome in place of those who can’t be there. And a special seating section will be set aside for those who are more comfortable sitting away from the animals. To serenade both congregation and pets, FCCW’s own house band will offer jazz music before, during and after the service. We will sing and move and praise all of creation with fun and upbeat music, readings, prayers and blessings. From “Amazing Grace” to “All God’s Critters Got a Place in the Choir,” there will be an opportunity to sing, to listen and to share our cherished pet companions.
