The exhibit is dedicated to the stories, struggles, and achievements of the inductees, women who have shaped the culture and society of Connecticut and the nation.  Rather than focus soley on the photographs of each of the inductees, this exhibit showcases images that highlight the struggle of each woman's actions as a means of further reminding audiences that the quest for women's equality has not been an easy battle.

Amadeus in Retrospect: The Music, Life, and Legacy of Mozart
7:00 PM

  The music, life, and legacy of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart continues to fascinate and enthrall.  Who was Mozart? Of course, we all know his music, that rich and deep trove of ineffable melodies from his symphonies, operas, chamber, and sacred works that is an essential part of western civilization.  The wonderful play and movie, "Amadeus", have introduced Mozart's music to millions.  Yet, much of Mozart's life remains dotted with questions, falsehood, and hyperbole.  Join Dr. Vincent de Luise for a fascinating look at Mozart: the man, his life, and his wonderous musical legacy.
