Speaker: Melissa Ho Alma Thomas is a singular figure in the story of twentieth-century American art. She developed her exuberant form of abstract painting late in life, after retiring from a long career as a schoolteacher. Blossoming in the mid-1960s, her vibrant, rhythmic art transcended established genres, incorporating elements of gestural abstraction and color field painting. Thomas’s abiding sources of inspiration were nature, the cosmos, and music. She created a style distinctly her own, characterized by the dazzling interplay of pattern and hue. Join curator Melissa Ho for an introduction to the exhibition Composing Color: Paintings by Alma Thomas at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Melissa Ho is the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s curator of 20th-century art; she joined the museum’s staff in September 2016. Ho is responsible for research, acquisitions and exhibitions related to the museum’s collections focusing on art since 1945. She currently is leading an initiative to expand and enrich the representation of Asian American experiences, perspectives and artistic accomplishment in the museum’s collection and public displays. Recent projects include “American Voices and Visions: Modern and Contemporary Art” (2023), the first phase of a multiyear renewal and reinstallation of the museum’s permanent collection galleries, and “Composing Color: The Paintings of Alma Thomas” (2023), which will travel to several venues in the United States.

Technology can be so frustrating and even more so if you have physical or cognitive limitations. This session will review the many ways you can help yourself and your family use existing everyday technologies — with much less frustration — to improve the quality of life. Intelligent assistants such as the Amazon Echo’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri can help keep you connected with simple voice commands. Erin Byrne from TechMoxie will discuss how we have used these devices with great success to help clients with physical limitations such as Parkinson’s or cognitive impairment. Voice commands are often much easier (and less frustrating) than navigating the many layers of a smartphone app or computer. Learn ways to use intelligent assistants to use their voice to send text messages, make phone calls, turn lights on/off, unlock doors, listen to radio and even play audio books. We will also discuss privacy considerations that may impact you and your family. Host Villages: Hyattsville Aging in Place, Helping Hands University Park, Neighbors Helping Neighbors of College Park, and Explorations on Aging Registration: RSVP via the "Register Now" button by June 20th. Access: Zoom link will be sent 24 hours before the event

Speaker: Franklin Foer On January 20, 2021, standing where only two weeks earlier police officers had battled with right-wing paramilitaries, Joe Biden took his oath of office. The American people were still sick with COVID-19, his economists were already warning him of an imminent financial crisis, and his party, the Democrats, had the barest of majorities in the Senate. Yet, faced with an unprecedented set of crises, Joe Biden decided he would not play defense. He proposed the most ambitious domestic spending bills since the 1960s and vowed to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan, ending the nation’s longest war and reorienting it toward a looming competition with China. With unparalleled access to the tight inner circle of advisers who have surrounded Biden for decades, Franklin Foer dramatizes in forensic detail the first two years of the Biden presidency, concluding with the historic midterm elections. The result is a gripping and high-definition portrait of a major president at a time when democracy itself seems imperiled. The Last Politician is a landmark work of political reporting—which includes thrilling, blow-by-blow insider reports of the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan and the White House’s swift response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine—that is destined to shape history’s view of a president in the eye of the storm. Franklin Foer is a staff writer at The Atlantic and the author of World Without Mind and How Soccer Explains the World. For seven years, he edited The New Republic. Host Village: Northwest Neighbors Village Limited to 100. Registration is required by June 25th. Zoom link will be sent to registrants after registration.
