Strange. Peculiar. Unexpected. Different from what is ordinary or normal. Join us for an evening of art oddities and excitement as The Pawtucket Arts Collaborative presents ODD: An Annual Open Juried Exhibition What happens to those rare works of art that just don’t fit an artist’s usual style or medium? Where are those strange, experimental pieces that they love and have hanging in their studios but never seem to be able to fit into a regular showing of their works. Join us for a rare evening when area artists break form, clear their closets, dust-off their “unseen” or newly created queer and wonderful works of fine art and present them to you. The juror this year is Madolin Maxey, a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Rhode Island School of Design who now maintains a studio in Providence. Madolin’s own works are zany and colorful.

Join Dr. Kevin McBride, director of research at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center and associate professor of anthropology at the University of Connecticut, as he discusses the King Philip’s War Nipsachuck battlefield survey focused on identifying and documenting the location and boundaries of the movements, sites and actions associated with Second Battle of Nipsachuck. The battle began one hour after sunrise when a force of 300 Connecticut dragoons and 100 Pequot and Mohegan conducted a successful surprise attack on a Narragansett camp of at least 170 people situated in Mattity Swamp. The battle was a well-planned and coordinated attack and the only horse mounted attack of the war. The attack appears to be part of a larger effort by Connecticut to claim disputed areas of Rhode Island by Right of Conquest. Sponsored by the Friends of the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology.

Community Preparatory School is turning 30! Celebrate with us as we recognize the achievements of our alumni and all those who have helped make Community Prep possible. Since 1984, Community Preparatory School has motivated students from all walks of life to reach for their dreams – via rigorous education, public service and hard work.  Today, close to 700 Community Prep graduates are leaders – in their schools, in their businesses, and in their communities. The evening will bring together alumni, faculty, Community Prep families, and friends of the school to enjoy dinner, dancing, and an open wine bar.  Award-winning DJ Nook (Motif Magazine's 2013 Best Club DJ) will play the music you remember from middle school. All proceeds directly fund scholarships for Community Prep students.
