Litchfield County: Happening in the Hills
On Our Radar
Faces, places, treasures, and trends that caught our attention
arsenault
One would be wise not to doubt Arsenault, whose authorial debut, Mill Town: Reckoning with What Remains, is released this September. Her ferocious talent is visible on every page and, in person, self-assurance emanates off her like steam off hot coffee.
Barry blitt
Illustrator Barry Blitt claims that he is just trying to make himself laugh. But he makes everyone else laugh as well. He is perhaps best known for his covers for The New Yorker. His knack for rendering current political issues with the darkest of humor has won him accolades from critics and fans—and a lot of hate mail from dissenters.
Hendricks Churchill Lead
Once they agreed to rebuild, the owners envisioned a modern day farmhouse. The original footprint was slightly larger than Churchill would have made it had he been starting from scratch, bringing the final house to about 4000 square feet.
mary shinke
Speaking from experience, Mary Schinke firmly believes that dying at home is overrated. And as president of the board of directors of Regional Hospice in Danbury, she personally understands the trauma, confusion, and sadness a family endures over the loss of a loved one.
Velasquez
The Pleasant Valley resident creates paintings, prints, ceramics, cards, textiles, and mobiles of sometimes fantastical design––and often more subtle in form yet still stunning. She calls her work “modern, sophisticated, graphic, and bold with a fun color sense,” reflecting her love for the simplicity of line. Velasquez works in both digital and traditional methods.
Fifty years ago, Children’s Community School (CCS) was established in the basement of Waterbury’s Berkeley Heights Housing Project. The pre-K-grade five school, serves inner-city children whose families live at or below the federal poverty level—97% of whom identify as Black or Hispanic.
