March brings Patricia Miranda to the Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence program. Patricia utilizes natural materials to reveal connections between art, science, history and culture. She will incorporate Weir Farm as content in her work, the Witness Project, an installation using natural materials as a lens to uncover larger narratives.  Co-sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site and presented by Wilton Library. No charge. Registration suggested. 

The Wilton Clergy, the Wilton Interfaith Action Committee (Wi-ACT), and the Wilton Library invite you to a four-part lecture series: 'And Who Is My Neighbor? How Our Community Can Respond to Differences, Divisions and Conflict.'   The lectures are Tuesdays in March and feature guest speakers who will address the question of how civility and compassion can repair and transform community life, especially when diversity, differences of opinion, polarization or even hostile conflict appear in our midst. 

In this final session, a panel comprised of Wilton Clergy Association members will explore what the world's great faith traditions teach about sustaining community.   No charge, but donations are always welcomed. Please register for each session separately.
