To Honor 9/11 Hero Answer the Call Offering “Ride Like Vinny” Tickets to the Famed Coney Island Cyclone @ Coney Island Tickets
Jul 26 – Nov 1 all-day
To Honor 9/11 Hero Answer the Call Offering “Ride Like Vinny” Tickets to the Famed Coney Island Cyclone @ Coney Island |  |  |

Money raised benefits Answer the Call (Formerly the N.Y. Police and Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund)

“Ride Like Vinny” tickets are now on sale through September 6, to help raise funds for the Answer the Call: N.Y. Police and Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund. Each ticket costs $12 and entitles the bearer to one ride on the legendary Coney Island Cyclone through November 1.

The weekend before September 11, 2001, FDNY Captain Vincent Giammona and his wife took their daughters to Coney Island for the day. As they were driving home, Vinny turned back and saw the Cyclone Roller Coaster. He told his family he needed to go back to ride it even though the ride was closed. Vinny spotted a worker and explained his 40th birthday was coming up on Tuesday and that he was a NYC Firefighter. His wish was granted. Vinny was the only one on the roller coaster. He sat in the front car, with one hand up, and a huge smile on his face, while his wife and daughters cheered from behind the fence. Tragically, it was his final birthday wish.

A few days later, on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, Vinny turned 40 years old. Vinny was among the 403 FDNY, NYPD, and PAPD heroes that sacrificed their lives in the line of duty while protecting our city that day.

“Ride Like Vinny” seeks to honor the selfless and heroic spirit with which Vinny and our heroes died, while also remembering and celebrating the incredible spirit with which they lived. The money raised from these special “Ride Like Vinny” tickets will enable the N.Y. Police and Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund, known by Answer the Call, to continue to help the families of our fallen heroes. Each “Ride Like Vinny” ticket is good for one admission on The Coney Island Cyclone and can be used any day before November 1, 2017.

Since Answer the Call was founded in 1985 by Former NY Met Daniel “Rusty” Staub, the organization has distributed over $135 million directly to the families of those who lost a loved one in the line of duty. It is the only nonprofit organization that provides immediate and ongoing financial assistance to the families of NYPD, FDNY, and PAPD heroes killed in the line of duty. Answer the Call’s goal is to provide meaningful support for the rest of a widow or widower’s life. In 2017 alone, they will help nearly 600 families and distribute over $4 million.

Memory of Place: Frank Poor & Thomas Doyle @ Flinn Gallery at Greenwich Library Tickets
Sep 7 – Oct 18 all-day
Memory of Place: Frank Poor & Thomas Doyle @ Flinn Gallery at Greenwich Library |  |  |

If These Walls Could Talk
On Thursday, Sept. 7, Flinn Gallery will launch their 2017-18 season with an opening reception for the exhibit, Memory of Place: Frank Poor & Thomas Doyle.
Curators Fereshteh Priou and Claudia Schipper have thoughtfully paired the work of two very different artists who share a fascination for architecture. The show is based on the concept of Time, Place and Memory. Each artist addresses, in his own way, the import and fragility of structures which house more than our physical selves, they contain some of our most important memories. The exhibit explores the meaning of a place, its effect on our memories and our imaginations, and the unsettling idea of displacement.

The wall texts, consisting mostly of quotes by famous authors about time, place and memory, add a reflective slant which enhances the experience for the viewer

Frank Poor, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, wanders the rural south photographing local architecture that has been impacted by the population boom. Poor transfers his images of homes and businesses onto Plexiglas and, working with aluminum and wood veneer, he assembles the pieces into three-dimensional structures. In the gallery, the buildings appear ethereal and somewhat dislocated, separated as they are from their history and context. Poor’s pieces are like an homage to a time and place that has disappeared from rural communities.

Thomas Doyle, a graduate of Humboldt State University in California, constructs miniature worlds which tend to elicit unbidden memories. Doyle’s intimately scaled works, often displayed under glass domes, distort reality as if one were looking through a warped and dream-like lens. Suburban New England homes and families’ interactions around them are frozen in time. Ready to topple into sinkholes or pushed to the brink, these environments and those who dwell in them are both oddly familiar and ominous. The narrative remains ambiguous and viewers must tease out their own stories.

In contrast to Doyle’s compressed domestic worlds, Poor’s are larger and modern in execution. Both deal with the slippery relationship between our experience of the world and the way we sift and color it in our recollections.

EVENTS:
Thursday Sept. 7th, 6-8 pm.
The public is invited to attend the opening reception for Memory of Place.

Sunday Sept. 10th at 2pm: Artists Talk
Frank Poor & Thomas Doyle will discuss their artwork and creative process during an artists’ talk in Flinn Gallery.

Sunday Oct. 1st, 2-4 pm
 – an author’s talk in the gallery on, author Lauren Acampora will read selections from her book of short stories, “The Wonder Garden,” which is about a fictional suburb where the perfect houses pose a stark contrast to the inhabitants’ eccentricities, obsessions and personal battles. The book was named one of the best books of the year by Amazon and NPR and its subject matter neatly parallels the themes of this exhibition.

Flinn Gallery is a not-for-profit and volunteer-run gallery featuring 6 art exhibits annually in all mediums from a wide range of periods, visions and techniques. Artwork is for sale and commissions from sales support the programs of the Friends of Greenwich Library.

Flinn Gallery is open daily Mon-Sat 10-5, Thurs. until 8, and Sun. 1-5. Flinn Gallery, Greenwich Library, 2nd floor, 101 W. Putnam Ave., Greenwich CT 06830, tel. (203) 622-7947. Free and open to the public. Free parking is available.
