Civil War Lecture Series: "Gibraltar of the Confederacy: Fort Fisher" with John V. Quarstein, Director, USS Monitor Center & Foundation External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
Venue: The Mariners' Museum & Park
Wilmington, North Carolina on the Cape Fear River was perhaps the most effective blockade runners' port - trading cotton and tobacco for munitions, medicines, clothing, and other war material. Located 29 miles upriver from the Atlantic Ocean, it was defended by a series of forts of which the most important was Fort Fisher. Named for Colonel Charles Fisher of the 6th North Carolina, who was killed at 1st Manassas, the fort was the largest seacoast earthen fortification in the world. The Federals endeavored to capture the fort 23-27 December 1864 by a joint operation commanded by Major General Benjamin Butler and Rear Admiral David Porter; yet, the expedition failed. A second amphibious assault descended on Fort Fisher on 13-15 January 1865. This assault successfully closed the last port available to support the Confederate armies in the east.

Found in every ocean on earth, humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a slow but remarkable recovery. Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out why humpbacks are the most acrobatic of all whales, why they sing their haunting songs, and why these intelligent 55-foot, 50-ton animals migrate up to 10,000 miles round-trip every year.

In the Light of Naples: The Art of Francesco de Mura External Event Page
Winter Park, Florida
"In the Light of Naples: The Art of Francesco de Mura" will be the first-ever exhibition of the art of Francesco de Mura (1696–1782)—arguably the greatest painter of the Golden Age of Naples. The Cornell Museum owns a major painting by De Mura, "The Visitation", of 1750, which is the impetus for this show. Francesco de Mura, the indisputable leader in his day of the Neapolitan School and the favorite of the reigning Bourbon King Charles VII, was the chief painter of decorative cycles to emerge from the studio of Francesco Solimena (1657–1747), the celebrated Baroque artist. De Mura’s refined and elegant compositions, with their exquisite, light, and airy colors, heralded the rococo in Naples, and his later classicistic style led to Neo-Classicism. De Mura’s ceiling frescoes rivaled those of his celebrated Venetian contemporary, Giambattista Tiepolo (1696–1770). Yet, today, he lacks his proper place in the history of art. This show seeks to answer why this is so: If he was so celebrated and admired in his lifetime, why is de Mura so little known today? The exhibition—which in 2017 will travel to the Chazen Museum at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; the Loeb Art Center at Vassar College; and the Snite Museum at the University of Notre Dame—will feature more than 40 works by de Mura from such collections as Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Minneapolis Art Institute, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, and other public and private collections. In addition, there will be loans from Naples, Paris, and London. Included will be the Cornell Museum’s recently acquired Solimena painting, as well as the Cornell’s newly identified oil by a follower of Solimena. Dr. Arthur Blumenthal, Director Emeritus of the Cornell, is the Guest Curator of the show, which will have a scholarly catalogue with essays by such art historians as Nicola Spinosa, former Superintendent of the National Museums in Naples and foremost expert on de Mura.
