Housatonic Community College to host project launch and brainstorming session for Rachel Owens' project, Life On the Other Side of a Cracked Glass Ceiling.

Description

Housatonic Community College will host project launch and brainstorming session for Rachel Owens' project, Life On the Other Side of a Cracked Glass Ceiling - Bridgeport. Students and community members will gather to brainstorm ways in which the project and forthcoming sculptures can be programmed and engaged by the community. Centering on the Mary and Eliza Freeman Houses, a series of scaffolded casts of the front porch of Mary's house will be activated for discussions and performances pertinent to Bridgeport's diverse population. The Freeman homes are the oldest standing houses owned and built by people of color in the state, as well as unmarried women at a time when it was illegal for single women to own property. The houses are all that remains of the radical multi-ethnic, Little Liberia in southern Bridgeport. The community was a model of equity; this project seeks to revive the model.
