In Remembrance: Arthur Richter, Member and Friend

W0010310-1_20220503

Arthur became a member of LLC in 2011 and co-coordinated his first class, Theater Conversations in 2013. He went on to co-coordinate many more: Fact and Fiction, Friends of Dorothy: An Exploration of the History and Culture of Gay Life in America, Gays and Broadway, Making a Difference, Made in Rhode Island, Chagall, Celebrating 50 Years of Gay Theater, Sondheim, Hal Prince, The Wonderful World of Black Theater, Music, Art, and Dance, and The Wonderful World of Frank Lloyd Wright.

As his obituary reads, "Arthur had no acquaintances, only friends. He was insatiably curious about other people and was always a devoted friend, cheerleader, and confidante, to literally hundreds of people." Arthur is remembered by his friends here at LLC as a force of nature, a vibrant man with great personal charm and charisma. He will be dearly missed. Read the full tribute to Arthur in The Lark.

CULTURAL EVENTS

Thirty-four LLC members and friends attended the Planet Earth, The Environment, and Our Future – An Exhibition of Art and Science Looking at the Beauty and Fragility of Our World at WaterFire Arts on Earth Day (Friday, April 22).

Luke Jerram’s Gaia, a massive 23’ diameter depiction of the entire Earth that creates a sense of the “overview effect” that has often been reported by astronauts who sense a “cognitive shift” in their perception of the fragile “blue marble” “hanging in the void” of space. To view more of the featured artwork, read the May issue of The Lark here.
