The Library and local artist Rashmi Talpade invite you to participate in the creation of a museum quality, community-centric photo collage depicting the Town of Wallingford.
This art project is open to people of all ages and abilities. Here’s how you can be involved:
- Gather photographs of Wallingford homes, public buildings, neighborhood landscapes and scenic areas
- Send digital images to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring photographs to the Library
WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE?
The final 3’ x 8’ museum-quality collage will be composed of images cut from assorted photo prints to create an artistic townscape. The composed fragments of photographic prints will resemble a single image of an imaginary but familiar landscape of the Town of Wallingford.
POSTPONED TO: Saturday, January 30th, 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Presented by Wesleyan Professor Roy E. Kilgard
Beyond the recognizable figure of Orion, the long winter nights hold many wonders for us to explore. Gazing a little deeper, we can even gain insight into our home galaxy, the Milky Way, and our place within it. This talk will provide an overview of the winter sky as seen from the dark skies of central Connecticut, and maybe even convince you that it’s worth getting out in the cold to explore on your own!
Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.
