Overflow Crowd for WCI Screening of ‘Fed Up’

WestportNow.com Image
There was an overflow crowd tonight in Branson Hall at Westport’s Christ & Holy Trinity Church for “Fed Up,” an advocacy documentary that focuses on the causes of obesity in the United States. Presented by Westport Cinema Initiative (WCI) and the Westport Farmers Market, the film presented evidence showing that the large quantities of sugar in processed foods are an overlooked root of the obesity problem. Whole Foods of Westport and Fairfield was the sponsor and provided healthy salads and breads to filmgoers. Saugatuck Grain and Grape provided wine.

In celebration of the painting’s return and in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the Westport Schools Art Collection (WSAC),  Long Lots will be highlighting this painting and artist throughout the month of October. The painting also marks the start of a “Art of the Month” initiative in which each Westport school will display a picture from the collection.
