HOLLYWOOD COMES TO GREENFIELD!
DYLAN BRODY, Hollywood comedy writer and storyteller, is coming to Greenfield this fall for an evening of his special brand of humor!
For three years running, best-selling author and humorist David Sedaris invited Mr. Brody to share his stages when touring the West Coast. He has appeared on A&E’s Comedy on the Road, FOX TV’s Comedy Express, and Showtime's The Green Room with Paul Provenza. In 2010, Dylan appeared in the George Carlin Tribute at the New York Public Library, hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, featuring Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller, Ben Stiller, Kevin Smith, Louis C.K., and publisher Lewis Lapham, among others.
With fans that include comedic legends such as Carl Reiner, Robin Williams, Roseanne Barr and Richard Lewis, and an ever-expanding repertoire of witty and profound tales of his journey through life that are unique, yet utterly recognizable to everyone, Dylan has earned a reputation as one of America’s fastest rising storytellers.
“Funny in ways that don’t remind me of anyone.” David Sedaris

STC and ArtWeek MA (April 27-May 6)
May 1 - ART FOR/IS ART - A special collaboration for ArtWeekMA 1-3 pm in the Pushkin Gallery at Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center
Art For/Is Life is a celebration of the role of art in the lives of seniors, whether as life-long participants or for those exploring their connection to art.
Senior members of the Deerfield Valley Art Association will display in a special exhibition during ArtWeek at the Pushkin Gallery of Hawks & Reed. On May 1, seniors from the surrounding towns and Greenfield are invited to participate in this special event. Each participant will work with one of the volunteer elder artists to discover a way to represent through art a particular event or memory in his or her life - perhaps a childhood memory, a first job, or a visit to a special friend. The story will be recorded by a volunteer scribe and later re-told alongside the artwork just created.
Later, with permission of the participants, these artworks and the stories they reference will be displayed during Silverthorne's production of The Road to Mecca this June. We are grateful for our partners for this special event: Deerfield Valley Art Association, Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center, Greenfield Council on Aging, Gill-Montague Council on Aging, Northfield Council on Aging, Bernardston Council on Aging, and the Greenfield, Montague and Deerfield Cultural Councils
- "This program is supported in part by grants from the Montague & Deerfield Cultural Councils, local agencies which are supported by
the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency."
