NEW! Our Donation Shop is LIVE!

We’ve just launched our new Donation Shop, offering an incentive to generous donors to acquire images of the paintings created during our interactive musical events.

Each pack of 10 cards with envelopes is a gift with your $100.00 donation. The images were painted by S. Gordon Harwood, our Artist in Residence, at music events presented at correctional institutions, produced in real time during the performance and donated to each institution’s Inmate Committee upon our departure.

Take a moment to view these wonderful works of art by browsing through the collection.

Remember that your donations qualify for a tax receipt.

CBC’s Michael Enright provides exceptional coverage of our recent Millhaven event

On October 11, 2019, Looking at the Stars presented a piano trio at Millhaven Maximum Security Institution. It was our third visit to Millhaven and the FIRST to be recorded by a major media outlet. CBC Radio One The Sunday Edition with Michael Enright created an extraordinary recording of the event, including interviews with Millhaven’s Warden and some insightful commentary from inmates.

CBC has also posted Michael Enright’s personal essay on his experience here. (Click to open in a new tab)

We are sincerely grateful for Michael’s attention to our work and very impressed with the technical abilities of his sound crew, who recorded this classical music event in Millhaven’s gymnasium to produce a recording of amazing quality!

Please share this post with your friends and family. It is an excellent summary of everything Looking at the Stars is about! Donations to our work are gratefully received at https://lookingatthestars.org/donate/
