Art in Prison

Jul 10 2016 - 9:30am

If you had been a fly on the wall at the Northeastern Correctional Center any Thursday night over the last 15 years, you would have seen FUSN volunteers and incarcerated men busy with pieces of paper, colored pencils, stencils and glitter glue. Come to share some of the men's art and find out what it's like to enter a different world where people aren't so different.

Self-actualization in Beethoven

Aug 21 2016 - 9:30am

Many consider Beethoven one of the visionaries who significantly shaped our sense of ourselves as “Human” - beings, endowed with a rich and complex inner life, capable of reflection as well as action in the world. In learning about, and listening to one of Beethoven's last piano sonatas, his Op. 110, we will look at the nature of a musical process that rises to a metaphor for our own consciousness.
