In an effort to mitigate the spread of germs, the library will also be streaming the event on its Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/dedhampubliclibrary). We apologize for any inconvenience. Check the library’s website (https://www.dedhamlibrary.com/) and Facebook page for any further updates.

The Dedham Public Library, with the League of Women Voters of Westwood, Walpole, and Dedham, are excited to announce our first ever candidate forum on Saturday March 14th at 2pm at the Main Library, 43 Church Street. This forum will give residents the chance to hear from the candidates in a kid friendly environment. Candidates in major contested races will have the opportunity to give an opening statement, field questions from the audience, and give a closing statement; candidates for Town Meeting will be able to give a short statement. Please contact Amber Moroney at amoroney@dedham-ma.gov for more information.

CANCELED // "Style Wars" Movie Screening @ Main Library | Dedham | Massachusetts | United States

Join us as we continue our Graffiti Series with “Style Wars”, a documentary film that premiered in 1983, when the world received its first full immersion in the phenomenon that had taken over New York City. The urban landscape was physically transformed by graffiti artists who invented a new visual language to express both their individuality, and the voice of their community.

In STYLE WARS, New York’s ramshackle subway system is their public playground, battleground, and spectacular artistic canvas. As MC’s, DJ’s and B-boys rock the city with new sounds and new moves, we see street corner breakdance battles turn into performance art.

Winner of Best Documentary at Sundance Film Festival.

Featuring: graffiti writer Case/Kase 2

graffiti writer Skeme and his mother

graffiti “villain” Cap

graffiti writer Dondi Seen and Shy 147

graffiti documentarian (and co-producer of the film) Henry Chalfant

breakdancer Crazy Legs of Rock Steady Crew
