Submitted by Meredith Guinness, Assistant Director, Media Relations on September 4, 2012

As things heat up in our nation’s capital, Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts presents the perfect solution for those wondering what to make of current events – like the upcoming national elections. The Quick Center’s 2012-2013 Arts and Minds season opens its signature lecture series, Open VISIONS Forum, with a pair of events featuring experts on today’s political climate. At 8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 19, veteran journalist and 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl presents “Inside 60 Minutes” discussing her professional and personal life as one of the first female television reporters and one who covered Washington for over 20 years. That’s followed at 8 p.m. on Monday, October 1, with Dana Perino and Donna Brazile, two high powered Washington insiders from opposite sides of the aisle, whose presentation, “America at the Crossroads: Election 2012,” is the Seventh Annual Students Forum.


And don’t forget about other Quick Center events coming soon – like the Mark Morris Dance Group with the MMDG Music Ensemble at 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 15, featuring the Brooklyn-based dance troupe that has enthralled critics, dance enthusiasts, and novices alike with its amazing technical expertise, unique artistry, and signature use of music. A special post-performance discussion with Artistic Director Mark Morris is also on the program. And at 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 22, the Grammy®-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops breathe new life into the string-band tradition, proving that old-time fiddle and banjo-based music can have an ever-evolving sound.
