Finding Justice: The Untold Story of Women’s Fight for the Vote (Movie Screening & Q&A)
Jun 17 @ 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Join us for a virtual screening of the Justice Bell Foundation's new documentary Finding Justice: The Untold Story of Women's Fight for the Vote. Then, stay for a question-and-answer session with Amanda Owen, the filmmaker and director of the Justice Bell Foundation.

Part present-day detective story and part a historical account of the movement for voting rights, Finding Justice: The Untold Story of Women's Fight for the Vote tells the story of a band of intrepid women and their one-ton bronze bell that became a celebrated icon of the women's suffrage movement.

As current struggles for gender equality and voting rights continue to make front-page news, this account of the suffragists’ courage and dogged persistence will inspire new generations in the fight for justice and equality.

Jul 4 @ 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Webpage: http://www.ccarts.org/artisans-show/ 

CCArts transforms outdoor field into a marketplace of fine handcrafted gifts & delicious food once a month to support local artists  and food vendors.  

The Center for the Creative Arts launches a monthly outdoor market on Sunday, May 2, 2021 11am-3pm. “It is our hope that this  farmers market meets artisan show will become a community gathering place that nourishes people’s bodies and spirits with food  and art,” says Jennifer Hartz, CCArts Program Director and Market Coordinator. “When Jennifer brought this idea to one of our staff  meetings, I was really excited to support it. We have heard from so many of our working artist colleagues that 2020 and the  beginning of 2021 has been a difficult time since so many shows have been cancelled,” stated Melissa Paolercio CCArts Executive  Director. “Art shows and craft fairs are a huge revenue driver for so many local artists. We knew we wanted to do our part to  support them and what better way to invite our community back to campus then with a socially-distanced outdoor event.”  

“The majority of the vendors are Delaware-based and will be selling handmade fine art and crafts including ceramics, jewelry,  felting, turned wood, painting and more. There will also be food vendors selling baked goods and local honey,” says Hartz. 

Artists include: Stephanie Atkins (Mink’s Signature Foods & Desserts), Elisabeth Bard, Zachary Bloom (Zachary Bloom Jewelry  Designs), Damaris Colon (London Rock Art), Sue Ann Cox (The Fairy Potter), Christina Fabris and Joseph Csoltko (Iris and Callisto’s  Apiary), Pam Horstmann (Painted Threads), Bethann C. Kelleher (BBK Ceramics), Becki Mott-Lynn (Flossie’s Umbrella), Stephanie  Przybylek (Creative Animal), Valerie Walton (Val Walton Art), Abe & Bonnie Warren (Handcrafted by Abraham Warren), Patricia  Whitman (Links and Pearls). The Center for the Creative Arts (CCARTS) is located at 410 Upper Snuff Mill Row and Rt. 82, Yorklyn, DE.  For more information about CCArts, visit the website at www.ccarts.org, or call the center at 302-239-2434.

Virtual Tour of American Swedish Historical Museum
Jul 15 @ 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Join us on July 15 for a virtual tour and Q&A with the American Swedish Historical Museum!

Founded in 1926, the American Swedish Historical Museum in South Philadelphia is the oldest Swedish museum in the United States. The Museum is located on land that was once part of a seventeenth-century land grant from Queen Christina of Sweden to Swedish colonist, Sven Skute. The Museum’s architect, Swedish-American John Nydén, combined architectural features from three prominent edifices in his design. He modeled the main building after a seventeenth-century Swedish manor house, Eriksberg in Södermanland. The copper cupola atop the building is inspired by the one on Stockhlom’s City Hall, and the arcades which flank the Museum are patterned after those at George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon.

The museum boasts twelve galleries, including ones that focus on the New Sweden Colony (now Pennsylvania), traditional Swedish textiles, Pippi Longstocking, the accomplishments of Swedish women through history, and many more!
