June 11 - Saturday 6pm on ... THIS IS HAPPENING NOW painters Taj Campman, Tim Fite and Hunter Deerfield-Shaw will do 'live action painting' working on opposing walls, an approach in line with the physical intensity of 'The Happenings' a term llan Kaprow coined in his seminal essay “The Legacy of Jackson Pollock” (1956 ). He was referring to a mounting movement in the New York art scene that sought out fresh ways , beyond museum or gallery walls, to present work. Kaprow envisioned a new frontier where the boundaries between art and its immediate environment would be blurred ; no frames, no exposition , no price tags. It is in this spirit artist and curator of this 'happening' Lisa Mendelsund, fresh from her celebrated all-female exhibition at 118 in April "Bit Stitches, Rough Cuts, Nothing Nice," brings this art in action pop-up show to Brattleboro. Motivated by the same urgency that motivated her predecessors, she says: “If we don’t get up and out to see work directly then the galleries will fold and what we will be bequeathed is a stillborn art, entirely grafted to the tastes of the consumer elite. We will see repetition and not innovation. We will see glamour and not substance”. Examples of the artists' previous work will also be exhibited. Smocks will be provided for those who wish to participate in the art in action. Sandwiches and drinks will be available. For more information contact Mendelsund at: LMendelsund@comcast.net

“Southwestern Cumbia Band Brings Sonoran Sound to Brattleboro”
Tucson-Based Cumbia Group, Vox Urbana, Will Showcase Their Unique Latin Sound at Downtown Brattleboro’s 118 Elliot
Vox Urbana is a six -piece band that combines Latin-based sounds with stories and experiences that occur in the Arizona/Sonora border region. The bi-national band is based in Tucson, Arizona and has been creatively narrating stories of the border community since 2010. The band’s original repertoire breaks any language barrier via its unrelenting danceable grooves.
Vox Urbana’s instrumentation consists of guitar, keyboard, sax, trombone, bass guitar, congas, and drums. As a collective composing body, Vox Urbana continuously aims to learn and expand its musical influences. Among the musical styles found in the band’s sound and identity is a meztizaje of ethnic sounds such as Huapango, Cumbia, Chicha, Latin Funk, and Salsa.
Vox Urbana was recently awarded grants by the Tucson Pima Arts Council and the Puffin Foundation to complete it'sCumbia Corridos project, wherein the band interviewed members of Tucson's immigrant community and used their personal histories as the basis for the lyrics of a story-song project. The project was debuted in early 2016 and the band is currently working on a recording for release sometime in 2017. There is a suggested donation of $5 and additional sales of merchandise and recordings will go toward supporting the band’s Northeastern tour. For more information on the band and to hear their music, visitwww.voxurbantucson.com

September 10, Thursday, 7:00 pm, 350.org’s “Keep it in the Ground” campaign, Post Oil Solutions and the Climate Change Cafe will host a simulcast of this project’s major launch event. Originating from the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the event will be live streamed and will include such climate notables as Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein, as well as other voices from the global movement. The “Keep it in the Ground” campaign will shape much of 350.org’s work through the critical gathering of world leaders at this December’s COP 21 conference in Paris, where it is hoped that decisive actions will be taken to substantially reduce global warming. The idea is to use the launch to build up a clear global narrative and kick off the sprint to Paris.
