Fri 1   Art Kara Walker Art Exhibit Schmucker Art Gallery presents an exhibition of works of art by prominent contemporary artist and MacArthur Foundation Achievement Award recipient Kara Walker. Her suite of lithographs Harper’s Pictorial History (Annotated) on loan from the Middlebury College Museum of Art takes Civil War-era imagery as its subject to question issues of identity, history, sexuality and race, particularly in relation to stereotypes and historical perceptions of African Americans. Schmucker Art Gallery
300 North Washington Street
Gettysburg, PA
17325
 
717-337-6338 Walker enlarges Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War, first published in 1866 to reinterpret and disrupt this celebrated document of American history. "These prints," Walker explains, "are the landscapes that I imagine exist in the back of my somewhat more austere wall pieces." Walker’s silhouettes of distorted, fragmented, and flailing black bodies subvert the original narrative of the Harper’s prints. Walker's silhouettes incorporate a new understanding of suffering, loss and horror absent from the nineteenth-century illustrations. Also on exhibit will be the original publication of Harper’s Pictorial History of the Civil War (1866), on loan from Special Collections and College Archives, to serve as a comparative tool for reading the Civil War imagery in its original context.

Kara Walker was born in Stockton, California, in 1969. She received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art in 1991, and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1994. The artist is best known for exploring the raw intersection of race, gender, and sexuality through her iconic, silhouetted figures. New York Times art critic Holland Cotter has written, “Ms. Walker’s style is magnetic. Whether in large cutouts, or notebook-size drawings, or in films that are basically animated versions of both, her draftsmanship is excitingly textured — old-masterish here, doodlish there — and all of a piece. Brilliant is the word for it, and the brilliance grows over the survey’s decade-plus span.” Walker’s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. In 1997, Walker received the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Achievement Award and was the United States representative to the 2002 Bienal de Săo Paulo. She currently lives in New York.

The exhibition and related programming will be held in conjunction with the Central Pennsylvania Consortium Africana Studies Conference. The exhibition is supported in part by the Gettysburg College Sesquicentennial Committee for the Commemoration of the American Civil War and EPACC.

Historic Gettysburg Railroad Station

 35 Carlisle Street

Gettysburg, Pa 17325

800-337-5015 Stop by the Train Station for a cup of hot chocolate and learn about the Victorian Wedding, the most important event in a Victorian girl's life. It is the day her mother has prepared her for from the moment she was born. The Victorian girl knew no other ambition. She would marry, and she would marry well. But how did she arrive at this all important day? And then what? We’ll explore courtship - what she and her future husband were expected to bring to the marriage, the wedding ceremony - which day was best to marry, what the bride wore, and the significance of the flowers she carried, and of course, a woman’s “place” both before and after she promised to “Love, Honor, and Obey.” We’ll peruse customs and superstitions –and maybe even learn a little about flirtation in the Victorian Era.

Her suite of lithographs Harper’s Pictorial History (Annotated) on loan from the Middlebury College Museum of Art takes Civil War-era imagery as its subject to question issues of identity, history, sexuality and race, particularly in relation to stereotypes and historical perceptions of African Americans. Schmucker Art Gallery
300 North Washington Street
Gettysburg, PA
17325
 
717-337-6338 Walker enlarges Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War, first published in 1866 to reinterpret and disrupt this celebrated document of American history. "These prints," Walker explains, "are the landscapes that I imagine exist in the back of my somewhat more austere wall pieces." Walker’s silhouettes of distorted, fragmented, and flailing black bodies subvert the original narrative of the Harper’s prints. Walker's silhouettes incorporate a new understanding of suffering, loss and horror absent from the nineteenth-century illustrations. Also on exhibit will be the original publication of Harper’s Pictorial History of the Civil War (1866), on loan from Special Collections and College Archives, to serve as a comparative tool for reading the Civil War imagery in its original context.

Kara Walker was born in Stockton, California, in 1969. She received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art in 1991, and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1994. The artist is best known for exploring the raw intersection of race, gender, and sexuality through her iconic, silhouetted figures. New York Times art critic Holland Cotter has written, “Ms. Walker’s style is magnetic. Whether in large cutouts, or notebook-size drawings, or in films that are basically animated versions of both, her draftsmanship is excitingly textured — old-masterish here, doodlish there — and all of a piece. Brilliant is the word for it, and the brilliance grows over the survey’s decade-plus span.” Walker’s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. In 1997, Walker received the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Achievement Award and was the United States representative to the 2002 Bienal de Săo Paulo. She currently lives in New York.

The exhibition and related programming will be held in conjunction with the Central Pennsylvania Consortium Africana Studies Conference. The exhibition is supported in part by the Gettysburg College Sesquicentennial Committee for the Commemoration of the American Civil War and EPACC.

"These prints," Walker explains, "are the landscapes that I imagine exist in the back of my somewhat more austere wall pieces." Walker’s silhouettes of distorted, fragmented, and flailing black bodies subvert the original narrative of the Harper’s prints.

Kara Walker was born in Stockton, California, in 1969. She received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art in 1991, and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1994. The artist is best known for exploring the raw intersection of race, gender, and sexuality through her iconic, silhouetted figures. New York Times art critic Holland Cotter has written, “Ms. Walker’s style is magnetic. Whether in large cutouts, or notebook-size drawings, or in films that are basically animated versions of both, her draftsmanship is excitingly textured — old-masterish here, doodlish there — and all of a piece. Brilliant is the word for it, and the brilliance grows over the survey’s decade-plus span.” Walker’s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. In 1997, Walker received the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Achievement Award and was the United States representative to the 2002 Bienal de Săo Paulo. She currently lives in New York.

The exhibition and related programming will be held in conjunction with the Central Pennsylvania Consortium Africana Studies Conference. The exhibition is supported in part by the Gettysburg College Sesquicentennial Committee for the Commemoration of the American Civil War and EPACC.

Mon 18 8:00am-5:00pm Educational Adams County Community Appreciation Day

At the Gettysburg Museum and Visitor Center, David Wills House and Rupp House History Center

The Gettysburg Foundation and the National Park Service invite Adams County residents to a Community Appreciation Day on Monday, February 18. On four designated Community Appreciation Days a year, Adams County residents enjoy free tickets to the Cyclorama, Film and Museum Experience at the Museum and Visitor Center at Gettysburg National Military Park.   Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center - Gettysburg Foundation & National Park Service

1195 Baltimore Pike
Gettysburg, PA 17325

1-877-874-2478 The Museum and Visitor Center will be open from 8am–5pm, with the first Cyclorama and A New Birth of Freedom film presentation scheduled for 8:30am; the final show will be at 4:00pm. Due to the popularity of previous community events, Adams County residents are encouraged to arrive early; and tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. (Advance reservations are not available for Community Appreciation Day tickets, and rain checks will not be available.) Local visitors should be prepared to show proof of Adams County residence, such as a driver’s license, at the ticket counter in the main lobby of the Museum and Visitor Center.

The final Community Appreciation Day of 2013 is Veterans’ Day, Monday, November 11.

David Wills House Delivers History and Preservation
The Civil War came to the doorstep of the David Wills home in 1863 as Confederate soldiers occupied the town and the Wills house was used by wounded and dying soldiers. Months later President Abraham Lincoln stayed in this home just before delivering his Gettysburg Address. The David Wills House offers a self-guided museum tour that includes five galleries, two recreated rooms, including the Lincoln bedroom, two interactive stations, two films and a gift shop. Hours on February 18 are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Rupp House History Center Offers Civilian and Soldier Experiences
Please visit us at the Rupp House History Center, 451 Baltimore Street, Gettysburg, on February 18 from noon to 5 p.m. in conjunction with Community Appreciation Day. Through interactive exhibits that use sight, sound, touch and even smell, Rupp House visitors are able to immerse themselves in 19th century culture and learn about the civilians and the soldiers who struggled here, the John Rupp family and the preservation work that is critical to understanding the Battle of Gettysburg. For information call (717) 339-2155.

Gettysburg National Military Park is a unit of the National Park Service that preserves and protects the resources associated with the Battle of Gettysburg and the Soldiers’ National Cemetery, and provides an understanding of the events that occurred there within the context of American history. Information is available at www.nps.gov/gett.

The Gettysburg Foundation is a private, non-profit educational organization working in partnership with the National Park Service to enhance preservation and understanding of the heritage and lasting significance of Gettysburg. The Foundation raised funds for and now operates the Museum and Visitor Center at Gettysburg National Military Park, which opened in April 2008. In addition to operating the Museum and Visitor Center, the Foundation has a broad preservation mission that includes land, monument and artifact preservation and battlefield rehabilitation—all in support of the National Park Service’s goals at Gettysburg.

For information about the Foundation, about visiting Gettysburg, or how you can become a part of the history of Gettysburg through your contribution, visit www.gettysburgfoundation.org or call 877-874-2478 or the administrative offices at 717-338-1243.
 

Mon 18 10:00am-4:00pm 150th The Guns of Gettysburg Visitors to Gettysburg National Military Park will have a rare opportunity to touch a piece of American history. Original weapons used in the Civil War will be on display in the lobby of the GNMP Visitor Center. Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center - Gettysburg Foundation & National Park Service

1195 Baltimore Pike
Gettysburg, PA 17325

 

1-877-874-2478 The exhibit will display the most common weapons used in the Battle of Gettysburg, including long arms, carbines, revolvers, and edged weapons. Unlike most museum exhibits, however, this display will allow close examination of the artifacts and even light handling by visitors.

Knowledgeable living historians in period attire will explain the weapons and some of the new technology of the war, including breechloaders, the Maynard tape and pellet priming systems, and pinfire and rimfire cartridges. They will also tell the story of the little-known role of women and children in manufacturing ammunition and about the hundreds who died in accidents doing that dangerous work.

This special exhibit of the Keener-Farley Traveling Arms Collection is part of the educational outreach programming of the Civil War Dance Foundation. In addition to conducting Civil War balls, dance demonstrations and classes, the CWDF also presents military and civilian artifact displays and lectures on a variety of Civil War topics. In 2011, the CWDF was named the Reenactment Unit of the Year by the Civil War Trust.

NOTE: This is a Gettysburg Foundation Community Appreciation Day - Adams County residents enjoy free tickets to the Cyclorama, Film and Museum Experience at the Museum and Visitor Center at Gettysburg National Military Park.

Thu 21   Art Kara Walker Art Exhibit Schmucker Art Gallery presents an exhibition of works of art by prominent contemporary artist and MacArthur Foundation Achievement Award recipient Kara Walker. Her suite of lithographs Harper’s Pictorial History (Annotated) on loan from the Middlebury College Museum of Art takes Civil War-era imagery as its subject to question issues of identity, history, sexuality and race, particularly in relation to stereotypes and historical perceptions of African Americans. Schmucker Art Gallery
300 North Washington Street
Gettysburg, PA
17325
 
717-337-6338 Walker enlarges Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War, first published in 1866 to reinterpret and disrupt this celebrated document of American history. "These prints," Walker explains, "are the landscapes that I imagine exist in the back of my somewhat more austere wall pieces." Walker’s silhouettes of distorted, fragmented, and flailing black bodies subvert the original narrative of the Harper’s prints. Walker's silhouettes incorporate a new understanding of suffering, loss and horror absent from the nineteenth-century illustrations. Also on exhibit will be the original publication of Harper’s Pictorial History of the Civil War (1866), on loan from Special Collections and College Archives, to serve as a comparative tool for reading the Civil War imagery in its original context.

Kara Walker was born in Stockton, California, in 1969. She received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art in 1991, and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1994. The artist is best known for exploring the raw intersection of race, gender, and sexuality through her iconic, silhouetted figures. New York Times art critic Holland Cotter has written, “Ms. Walker’s style is magnetic. Whether in large cutouts, or notebook-size drawings, or in films that are basically animated versions of both, her draftsmanship is excitingly textured — old-masterish here, doodlish there — and all of a piece. Brilliant is the word for it, and the brilliance grows over the survey’s decade-plus span.” Walker’s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. In 1997, Walker received the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Achievement Award and was the United States representative to the 2002 Bienal de Săo Paulo. She currently lives in New York.

The exhibition and related programming will be held in conjunction with the Central Pennsylvania Consortium Africana Studies Conference. The exhibition is supported in part by the Gettysburg College Sesquicentennial Committee for the Commemoration of the American Civil War and EPACC.

Mon 25   Art Kara Walker Art Exhibit Schmucker Art Gallery presents an exhibition of works of art by prominent contemporary artist and MacArthur Foundation Achievement Award recipient Kara Walker. Her suite of lithographs Harper’s Pictorial History (Annotated) on loan from the Middlebury College Museum of Art takes Civil War-era imagery as its subject to question issues of identity, history, sexuality and race, particularly in relation to stereotypes and historical perceptions of African Americans. Schmucker Art Gallery
300 North Washington Street
Gettysburg, PA
17325
 
717-337-6338 Walker enlarges Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War, first published in 1866 to reinterpret and disrupt this celebrated document of American history. "These prints," Walker explains, "are the landscapes that I imagine exist in the back of my somewhat more austere wall pieces." Walker’s silhouettes of distorted, fragmented, and flailing black bodies subvert the original narrative of the Harper’s prints. Walker's silhouettes incorporate a new understanding of suffering, loss and horror absent from the nineteenth-century illustrations. Also on exhibit will be the original publication of Harper’s Pictorial History of the Civil War (1866), on loan from Special Collections and College Archives, to serve as a comparative tool for reading the Civil War imagery in its original context.

Kara Walker was born in Stockton, California, in 1969. She received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art in 1991, and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1994. The artist is best known for exploring the raw intersection of race, gender, and sexuality through her iconic, silhouetted figures. New York Times art critic Holland Cotter has written, “Ms. Walker’s style is magnetic. Whether in large cutouts, or notebook-size drawings, or in films that are basically animated versions of both, her draftsmanship is excitingly textured — old-masterish here, doodlish there — and all of a piece. Brilliant is the word for it, and the brilliance grows over the survey’s decade-plus span.” Walker’s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. In 1997, Walker received the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Achievement Award and was the United States representative to the 2002 Bienal de Săo Paulo. She currently lives in New York.

The exhibition and related programming will be held in conjunction with the Central Pennsylvania Consortium Africana Studies Conference. The exhibition is supported in part by the Gettysburg College Sesquicentennial Committee for the Commemoration of the American Civil War and EPACC.
