SOUTHBOUND: PHOTOGRAPHS OF AND ABOUT THE NEW SOUTH External Event Page
Charleston, South Carolina
Southbound embraces the conundrum of its name. To be southbound is to journey to a place in flux, radically transformed over recent decades, yet also to the place where the past resonates most insistently in the United States. To be southbound is also to confront the weight of preconceived notions about this place, thick with stereotypes, encoded in the artistic, literary, and media records. Southbound engages with and unsettles assumed narratives about this contested region by providing fresh perspectives for understanding the complex admixture of history, geography, and culture that constitutes today’s New South. Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South is an unprecedented photography exhibition co-curated by Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, and Mark Long, professor of political science, both of whom are on the faculty of the College of Charleston, in South Carolina. Southbound is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation. The exhibition will debut simultaneously at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the City Gallery at Waterfront Park.

The Neoclassical Gaze: Myth and Reality of Ancient Sculpture  External Event Page
Waco, Texas
The Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University is pleased to announce the opening of our 2019 exhibition year with The Neoclassical Gaze: Myth and Reality of Ancient Sculpture from January 22 through March 8, 2019. This exhibition features Wilhelm Gottlieb Becker’s Augusteum (1804-1811), a three-volume publication of engravings illustrating ancient Greek and Roman sculpture. These engravings will be displayed alongside plaster cast reproductions of ancient sculpture on loan from the Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin. These compelling works will be examined from the perspectives of both the ancient world, as well as that of the Neoclassical Revival at the turn of the nineteenth century, as presented by guest curators, Baylor Art Historians, Dr. Sean DeLouche and Dr. Nathan Elkins. The Augusteum is a grand publication dedicated to the ancient sculpture collected by Augustus II, the Prince Elector of Saxony, in Dresden, Germany, during the mid-eighteenth century. Published in German and French editions from 1804 to 1811, and again in 1837, the books, Augusteum, Dresdens antike Denkmäler enthaltend and Augusteum, ou Description des Monumens Antiques qui se trouvent à Dresde, include elaborate textual descriptions of the sculptures accompanied by 154 intricate engravings. Most of the illustrations depict sculptural figures from both front and back views. Beginning in 1723, Augustus II established the “Collection of Antique and Modern Sculptures” as part of his larger campaign to transform Dresden into a center for art and architecture in Germany. Many of the works he acquired came from the Chigi and Albani collections of Italy, whose antiquities originated predominantly from excavations in Rome and surrounding archeological sites. The Dresden Collection, currently housed in the historic Albertinum Museum in Dresden, is one of the oldest collections of ancient sculpture found outside Italy.

Trees, Paper, Styx - Art Exhibition External Event Page
Sausalito, California
Linda Colnett's art has long been inspired by nature, and in particular trees. A recurring theme in her work involves the paradox of the many benefits humans derive from trees - oxygen, shelter, food, clothing, medicines, fuel and other materials - versus the devastating impact of deforestation around the world. The process is often an evolution from photographs to paintings, paintings to prints or to mixed media and sculpture. This series is a tribute to the products that are derived from trees, as in wood panels, wooden dowels, and paper.

Seizing the Moment: The Evolution in Action Photography External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
The Evolution of Action Photography will feature never before seen images from The Horace Havemeyer III Collection along with work by contemporary photographers, showing the evolution of marine photography from a documentary approach to more of an artistic perspective. The Havemeyer Collection includes gelatin silver prints by early 20th-century master marine photographers Edwin Levick and Morris Rosenfeld, as well as work by others. ///// Levick and Rosenfeld pushed the limits of the photographic medium, capturing exciting, point-of-view images over a nine-year span. Levick’s work often placed the viewer squarely on deck, seemingly as part of the action, while Rosenfeld worked for Levick before he opened his own studio in 1910. ///// This one of a kind maritime collection was donated to The Mariners’ Museum in 2015 as a significant gift in memory of Horace Havemeyer III, a native of New York and an avid sailor. Havemeyer’s grandfather purchased these photographs from Levick; and over the years, they were passed down to his son and then grandson, Horace III, who founded Metropolis magazine in 1981. He served as its president until his death in 2014. His wife, Eugenie C. Havemeyer, is now at the helm of this publication, which is considered the vanguard of architecture and design today.

Tennessee Association of Museums 2019 Conference  External Event Page
Clarksville, Tennessee
Venue: The Riverview Inn
Community engagement is not a new topic for museums. John Cotton Dana wrote over 100 years ago that “Learn what aid the community needs: fit the museum to those needs.” (1917). Today, more than ever, museums rely on their local communities as resources vital to the sustainability of our institutions. They provide financial support, volunteer time, rich stories about community history, beautiful art for exhibit installations, and more. This year’s conference will focus on the question: How can museums in Tennessee better cultivate these valuable community resources, connect to new audiences in our backyard, and use them to become more sustainable institutions? ///// In 2019 as TAM gathers near the river in Clarksville, the sessions and evening outings to local museums allow time to discuss issues related to using our local resources to advance our missions within our communities. Get ideas on how to cultivate and connect to your community from the Customs House Museum & Cultural Center, Austin Peay State University, Fort Defiance Civil War Park and Interpretive Center, Historic Collinsville, and the Don F. Pratt Museum at Fort Campbell. Connecting to community is critical for sustainability for cultural institutions. Let’s gather in Clarksville as a museum community to share successes, learn from failures, and gain valuable information on how to make our institutions critical community assets.
