Contemporary Cuban Printmaking @ Springfield Art Museum
Dec 8 2018 @ 9:24 pm – Mar 17 2019 @ 10:24 pm

Pulled entirely from the collection of the Racela Educational and Charitable Foundation, this exhibition presents over 70 prints by thirty-three Cuban artists who have all worked at the Taller Experimental de Gráfica de Habana – the oldest, continuously running print workshop in Cuba. From its inception, the workshop has focused on connecting artists with traditional printmaking techniques and fostering a dynamic artistic community based on the sharing and exchange of ideas, experimentation, and art criticism. This supportive community has allowed Cuban artists a relative freedom of expression, even amid the country’s larger political and cultural issues.

Northwest Project Robberson Maintenance Classes @ Pathways Methodist Church
Feb 19 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Northwest Project Robberson Maintenance Classes @ Pathways Methodist Church | Springfield | Missouri | United States

Northwest Project maintenance classes meet at Pathways on Tuesday nights. Childcare provided.

The goal of The Northwest Project is to pilot strategies over a five-year period to help families overcome the challenges that have kept them living in poverty and sustain their long-term success in emerging from those circumstances. The project includes a focus on 10 key areas for stability. Areas include: accountability, parent training, reliable transportation, affordable housing, quality childcare, budgeting/banking, financial planning, job training/education, resolved legal issues, and health and wellbeing.

The Community Foundation of the Ozarks selected northwest Springfield for this project because much of the area exceeds the city’s overall 25.6 percent poverty rate. In addition, the privately funded Northwest Project will take place in concert with the City of Springfield’s focus on improving public safety, infrastructure and chronic nuisance properties in this geographic area.

The Northwest Project is a collaboration among Missouri State University, Drury University, and Drew Lewis Foundation.
