Event Description

The New Haven Museum is proud to announce the opening of its latest exhibition “Cycle New Haven.” On Friday, August 31, 2012 at 5:30 PM, the Museum will inaugurate the exhibition with a reception that is open to the public free of charge. “Cycle New Haven” is the latest exhibition at the New Haven Museum highlighting the Elm City’s history and relationship with the bicycle. From Pierre Lallement filing his patent for the pedal-driven velocipede, to the growing popularity of the bike as an instrument of sustainable transportation, New Haven has played a long and impressive role at the forefront of cycling in America. “Cycle New Haven” features material from the New Haven Museum’s archives and collections, along with exciting contributions from the local community. “Cycle New Haven” is a celebration of bicycles and New Haven innovation. The exhibition will be on view through March 31, 2013.

The New Haven Museum has worked in conjunction with The Devil’s Gear Bike Shop and Elm City Cycling as in highlighting the industrial developments surrounding the manufacturing of bicycles in New Haven, to racing at the turn of the 20th century, and the social involvement of our community throughout the last 100 years.

The New Haven Museum, founded in 1862 as The New Haven Colony Historical Society, is located in downtown New Haven at 114 Whitney Avenue. For more information, please contact Jason Bischoff-Wurstle at (203) 562-4183 x18 or photos@newhavenmuseum.org.

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
