The city of Manhattan was a favorite subject for artist and National Academician Adolf Dehn (1895-1968) and, until April 7, the Fairfield University Art Museum in Fairfield, Conn., presents some of Dehn’s most notable works for the public to experience in Adolph Dehn: Midcentury Manhattan. Dehn, perhaps best known as a lithographer, produced an impressive body of work that richly portrayed nightclub scenes, burlesque clubs and Central Park during the period between the 1920s and 1960s.
A central figure in the contemporary realists movement that began in the United States in the 1930s, Dehn holds the curious distinction of having been in more prestigious art shows than any other artist, including every Whitney Museum of American Art Annual and Biennial invitational exhibition dating from the Whitney’s first biennial in 1932. The current exhibition in the university museum’s Bellarmine Hall Galleries includes pastel, ink and pencil drawings, watercolors, casein paintings and a selection of lithographs. The exhibition corresponds with the release of Adolph Dehn: Midcentury Manhattan (The Artist Book Foundation, 2017) by Philip Eliasoph, who teaches art history at Fairfield University.
The Hamilton Hotel, located steps from the White House, was the perfect place for a relaxing weekend getaway. Upon arrival, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful with a quick check-in process. The lobby was immaculate with shining marble flooring, velvet couches and an arched ceiling design that brought a sense of sophistication. For added security, the elevators are only accessible to those who have a key card to a guestroom.
Luxury destinations around the country partnered with Bryte to introduce The Restorative Bed and enhanced sleep programming at their hotels. The revolutionary, AI-powered Restorative Bed uses real-time technology to intuitively adjust based on the individual’s needs and preferences. An embedded sensory network detects biometrics, like heart rate and breathing patterns, when a sleeper enters the first stage of sleep, triggering cooling features and lulling sleepers into deep sleep. Computer-controlled air cushions alleviate pressure points, and the technology also leads sleepers naturally out of sleep.

Talk about a grand entrance! After driving across the state of Pennsylvania and spending the last 40 minutes of our journey in a snowstorm, Nemacolin’s The Chateau coming into view was a welcome and gorgeous sight. After stopping at a checkpoint where our temperatures were taken, we drove to the valet, where we were helped with our many bags (winter gear takes up a lot of luggage space!) and escorted into an equally gorgeous lobby, bedecked with red roses in a nod to Nemacolin’s recent gig as host venue for the latest season of The Bachelor. Given the late hour, the lobby was quiet and empty. We were offered Champagne at check-in and were quickly on our way to our guestroom.
