About the Artists:
Ken Scaglia studied Graphic Design at Purdue University and Yale University. Growing up in Indiana near cornfields and the Indy 500 led him to connect his love of drawing, cars, and fine details. He focuses on the principles of balance, value, and movement in cars. Ken is currently an adjunct professor of design in Southwest Connecticut.

Richard Lewis was trained as an architect at the Southern California Institute of Architecture. He started painting in watercolor to learn more skills related to architectural renderings but was drawn to the design of cars. He has particular interest in painting reflections. Richard now runs the art displays at the Dana Point Concours D’elegance and the Greystone Concours D’elegance.

Stage/Theater

https://our.show/the-american-soldier-oct21, https://our.show/the-american-soldier-oct21, Mystic, CT , 06355

This production of The American Soldier is being performed in Sedona, AZ but is available for live stream on October 23rd. The American Soldier is a play based and inspired by real stories and letters written by veterans and their families from the American Revolution through the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. It reveals the struggles American soldiers face at war and their internal struggles to come back home. The show strives to help us understand how and why it is so difficult for men and women in the armed services to re-enter our civilian life when they come back home. Its goal is to honor our veterans and thank their families for their immense sacrifice to our country.

The American Soldier is the American story of how many men and women have put on and are willing to put on the uniform to fight, defend and give the ultimate sacrifice for what our country stands for.
Starring Douglas Taurel , directed by Padraic Lillis and consulted by Stephen Jobes, and was originally developed in Emmy Award-winner Matt Hoverman's GO-SOLO Workshop.

The production was sponsored in part by C. Michael Schroeder, NAU, Caldwell Banker and the City of Sedona.
