      Recipient of the prestigious Pollock Krasner Award, Jordan Wolfson MFA '91 is currently exhibiting a number of his works from his Song Cycle with Blue Cloth series in what Westword critic Michael Paglia glowingly calls "a must-see show."

      Over a period of three years, Wolfson has returned to the same still-life subject with perhaps slight alterations, changing styles and media. While each work can be taken individually, as a grouping the paintings and drawings invite the viewer to an unfolding experience.

      Come to 808 Projects, 808 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, starting at 6:00 pm to have a glass of wine with fellow alums and hear what the artist has to say about his process. Please RSVP to: Stephanie Grilli.

      If you need an excuse to head for Aspen/Snowmass this Friday, head to Slow Groovin' BBQ on the Snowmass Mall, 67 Elbert Lane for FebClub, hosted by Rob Gavrell '97 and Mark Torres '96 with honorary guest Steve Lindsay '66. Look for the Yale flag and the pitcher of something resembling a Gold Cup. Things start at 4:30, and Rob had the great idea that alumni could include Ullr Night at Elk Camp as part of their evening's activities. So even if you live in Glenwood, Carbondale, Basalt or parts beyond the Roraing Fork Valley, you might want to heaver over.

      Join us for Common Room Conversation Nights in 2019! What are the elements of a good mystery and can those elements survive in the modern surveillance state? A conversation with Art Taylor (BR ’90) and John Copenhaver.

      Remember those evenings back at Yale when you ended up in the Common Room after dinner and fell into conversation with friends, spending a few hours tossing around ideas about interesting topics with clever, well informed people? The Yale Club of DC is hoping to give you a chance to relive those days with a new series of “Common Room Conversations.” Gathering at an alum’s home for wine, cheese, and conversation will give the evening a cozy, informal feeling. Bringing in speakers who are distinguished in a particular field to provide background, toss out questions, and help shape the conversation will allow us to really explore a topic. 

      For more information, please contact Rebecca Borden of the Yale Club of Washington, DC.
