Brainstorming began yesterday at the Read and Write program for what questions to ask the Kingston public for our community mural! Visiting artist Julia Vogl led students through a series of socially-distant data visualization activities and we examined the stencils she created for our mural to learn about the area’s history. We talked about what makes Kingston unique and what we think would be important to change...Today’s mission: practice asking specific questions and narrow in on what questions we want our mural to show!!

We have decided to put it on youtube so all the world can see it. Please enjoy and share it with your friends. It was a true labor of love and we would love it to reach a broader audience We believe it’s message is an important one. Three Italian sisters meet their new husbands for the first time after arriving at Ellis Island in the early 1900s.

A Benefit Performance for La Voz Magazine Sunday, June 25 at 4pm, Spiegeltent Featuring Grammy nominated salsa band New Swing Sextet! And salsa lesson with Dojo Dance Company, complimentary glass of wine, dance, raffles and surprises! The New Swing Sextet: Just after returning from its Latin American tour, the Grammy nominated New Swing Sextet will perform at Bard’s beautiful Spiegeltent. Imagine a hot salsa band from the 1960s reuniting after a 30-year hiatus to discover an even greater, more global, fan base. “Rip Van Winkle couldn’t have had it better,” recalls co-bandleader George Rodriguez of the New Swing Sextet’s (NSS) recaptured infectious popularity. “No one is more surprised than we are,” says the vocalist and original NSS member, “to be ‘Back on the Streets’.” A product of New York City and the excitement and turbulence of the sixties, the band has been a popular and innovative exponent of Latin jazz, salsa and pop music for over five decades. Fundraising events can be a lot of fun! Come see it for yourself! Proceeds from this ¡Salsa! will benefit La Voz magazine, the Bard's Spanish language publication covering Hispanic culture and news, for the 140,000 Latinos who live in the Mid-Hudson Valley and Catskill regions (Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Columbia and Sullivan counties). http://lavoz.bard.edu/
