New Canaan Library presents “Seeing is Being” by artists Deborah Chaney, Cris Xavier, & Edhu Nascimento on view in the Curtis Gallery from September 21 to November 5.

Join us for a special dance performance of “In the Arms of Three” choreographed by Ted Thomas & Frances Ortiz and set to music by Francisco Tarrega & Enrique Granados.
