Newark Life Spring/Summer 2016 issue

May 11, 2016 08:48AM ● Published by Richard Gaw

Artist Catherine Czerwinski, a native of Newark, started the Newark Beautification Mural Project last year. This is a public initiative aimed at not only creating more public art in the city, but also providing artistic opportunities for local high school students. In this issue of Newark Life, we profile Czerwinski and get an update from her about the progress on the project. We also take a look at the programs and services provided to the community by the Newark Senior Center as this Newark treasure celebrates its 50th anniversary throughout 2016. Writer Richard Gaw takes us inside Churrascaria Saudades, a Brazilian steakhouse that is now open in the Newark Shopping Center. Newark High School is the focus of a new exhibit at the Newark History Museum, and writer John Chambless explores the exhibit. We talk to Devina Kumar, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Delaware, about how research at the Go Baby Go Café on the University of Delaware's STAR Campus is offering new hope for traumatic brain injury survivors. Writer Lisa Fieldman talks to members of Delaware Synchronized Skating about a program that attracts participants from all over the region. Fieldman also explores the wide-reaching impact of research about honeybees at the University of Delaware. We spotlight the Aetna Hose Hook and Ladder Company's Fire and EMS departments, which serve the second busiest district in the state of Delaware. The staff of Newark Life always enjoys the opportunity to meet and talk with the people who help make the community such a wonderful place to live and work.
