Art Within Nature” by artist Robert Uricchio.

12:00 noon-4:00pm | Family | Visit the historic Muscoot Farm mansion and enjoy the “Art Within Nature” by artist Robert Uricchio. As a person who loves nature and being outdoors, it seems only natural that I would take my camera along on hikes, drives and trips, in order to be able to capture a moment or place it time. Through my images I hope to share with you some of the beauty, splendor and freedom of nature and the outdoors that I have experienced and enable you to bring a piece of it into your world.

GREAT DECISIONS: SOUTH AFRICA
10:00am | Adults |Discussion Leaders: Ponnambalam and Stanton
The African National Congress (ANC) party has governed South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994. But the party today suffers from frustration over official corruption and economic stagnation. Given America’s history of opportunistic engagement with South Africa, there are few prospects for a closer relationship   between the two countries. Meanwhile, a weaker ANC could lead to political fragmentation in this relatively new democracy.
