U. Roberto Romano Papers: Photographs of Child Labor in Coastal Countries;

Art Exhibits/Openings

Alexey von Schlippe Gallery of Art, Branford House, University of Connecticut-Avery Point, 1084 Shennecossett Road, Groton, CT , 06340

Please come to the opening reception for the exhibition, "U. Roberto Romano Papers: Photographs of Child Labor in Coastal Countries" at the University of Connecticut-Avery Point’s Alexey von Schlippe Gallery of Art in Branford House. The reception will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 12, from 5:30-7:30pm. All are welcome, and admission is free.

The exhibition features the photographs of Roberto Romano (1956-2013), an award-winning filmmaker, photojournalist, and human rights activist who spent his life documenting exploitative child labor in foreign countries (and in the U.S.) in order to improve the lives of children worldwide. On display are some of Romano’s most iconic images – beautifully arranged compositions of poignant subjects that reveal both the photographer’s aesthetic sensibilities and his dedicated pursuit of social justice.

In addition, never-before-seen works from Romano’s time exploring the jermals (fishing platforms) off the coasts of Indonesia examine the difficult and hazardous lives of the young boys who joined the crews in order to support their families on shore. The exhibition concludes with a stimulating series of UConn student artwork – inspired by Romano’s efforts – that explores child labor in the chocolate industry in Africa and how legislation is beginning to eliminate this unfortunate phenomenon.

"U. Roberto Romano Papers: Photographs of Child Labor in Coastal Countries" runs from Sept. 13 to Dec. 16 at the Alexey von Schlippe Gallery at Branford House on the UConn-Avery Point campus. It is open from 12:00-4:00pm, Thursdays through Sundays. Admission is free.

Bill Memorial Library, 240 Monument Street, Groton, CT , 06340

It’s the month of giving! This year, the Mystic & Noank Library and the Bill Memorial Library in the City of Groton are partnering together to collect food for our neighbors in need. Throughout December, both libraries will be offering a seasonal exchange that allows you to help the hungry while clearing yourself of late fees. Bring nonperishable, unexpired food items to either library and, in exchange, you will pay off your fines!

For every food item you bring in, $1 worth of fines will be forgiven. Please note - food donations cannot be used for lost or damaged material fees. You may make multiple donations; you may also make donations even if you don’t have any fines!

Food donated to the Bill Memorial Library will be given to the food pantry at Groton Human Services, food donated to the Mystic & Noank Library will be divided between the Food Bank at the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Shelter and the Food Pantry at Groton Human Services.
