Historian William Hosley will lead off Capital Community College’s Hartford Studies Lecture and Discussion Series on Thursday evening January 25th at the 950 Main Street at historic Centinel Hill Hall auditorium on the campus.
The public lecture, focusing on the value of local art, architecture and archives “to attract talent and foster innovation and teamwork” in Hartford, will be held at 7 p.m.
The College’s Hartford Heritage Project and College Foundation are hosting the series on Hartford history as part of Capital’s 50th anniversary commemoration. The history series, curated by Hosley, will also include three additional public lectures on the last Thursday of February, March and April.
Hosley is a cultural resource development and marketing consultant, historian, preservationist, writer, and photographer. He was formerly director of the New Haven Museum and Hartford-based Connecticut Landmarks, where he cared for a chain of house museums, including Hartford’s Butler-McCook and Isham-Terry houses. Prior to that, as a curator and exhibition developer at Wadsworth Atheneum, his Sam & Elizabeth: Legend and Legacy of Colt’s Empire (1996), helped spawn the Coltsville National Park.
Prior to the lecture and discussion, the College will host the Connecticut Humanities Council’s (CHC) board meeting and a welcoming reception for new CHC Executive Director, Dr. Jason Mancini.
