Conversations on Culture – The Last Veterans

Join us for a conversation with photographer, Richard Bell as he tells us about his book, The Last Veterans of WWII. Bell will discuss his experience working with this amazing group of people, how he found them, and his inspiration. If you would like to learn more about Richard and his book, please visit: www.richardbellphoto.com and www.thelastveterans.com
 
Chronicling the many faces of the WWII effort, these contemporary black-and-white portraits of the longest surviving veterans remind us that the war comprised a collection of Americans from all walks of life.
 
Appealing to the families of soldiers, academics, history buffs, and veterans of other wars, this collection is a testament to the spirit of patriotism and diversity of a collective American effort.
 
A lifelong photojournalist and commercial photographer, Richard Bell started his career at Kent State University with a degree in Journalism. After witnessing the shootings at Kent, Richard switched his major from Biology to Journalism. Jobs at two large metropolitan daily papers followed: The St. Petersburg Times and The Philadelphia Inquirer. At the Inquirer Richard moved from Staff Photojournalist to Photo Editor where he was awarded the ‘Newspaper photo editor of the year’ award from ’Pictures of the year’ competition (POY). More
 
Leaving the newspaper business Richard started his own commercial photography business, ‘The Bing Group’, which produced print advertising for business uses. Concurrently he was a Senior Lecturer at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, teaching documentary photography. Richard is currently working on fine art and book projects at his studio in Medford, NJ.
 
The series will be held in the Living Room Gallery at Perkins Center in Moorestown.
 
This event is FREE and open to the public thanks to PNC Arts Alive, Be Part of Art.

The Butterfly: A Radical Act of Community Storytelling

Join us, as we radically change minds and hearts at transformative, uncensored adult storytelling concerts.

The Butterfly is a FREE community storytelling concert held the 4th Tuesday of each month at our Collingswood location.

Storytelling is the first art form.  From its inception on the continent of Africa, storytelling has been steeped in communal ethos.  It is an amalgamated event of teller and audience.  It teaches lessons, empowers voice and maintains societal values.  It makes us laugh, cry, gasp, hold on and release — It connects.

If you would like to participate as a teller, please Submit to Tell Here.

October: Travels, Travails and Triumphs (traveling stories, vacations, outside the US)
Deadline for Submission: October 8
Notification to Tellers: October 10
Rehearsal: October 16
Concert Performance: October 23

November: You’ve Got to Know This (history, relationships, values that must be shared)
Deadline for Submission: November 8

Concert Performance: November 27

CANCELLED December: Holiday Faux Pas (surviving the holidays, that special aunt, uncle, cousin or gift, humorous celebrations)
Deadline for Submission: December 2
Notification to Tellers: December 7
Rehearsal: December 10
Concert Performance: December 18

Be encouraged to indulge your creativity around the theme.
