Theater

This classic Rogers and Hammerstein musical,nset on an island during the 2nd World War, combines multiple story lines with one of the most beloved scores in Broadway history. This enduring tale of an American nurse forced to choose between her own prejudice and her love of a French plantation owner is balanced by the antics of a group of seabees who will stop at nothing to make a buck. A perfect blend of romance and humor with such classic songs as “Some Enchanted Evening,” Younger Than Springtime,” and “There Is Nothing Like a Dame.” South Pacific was the recipient of 10 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for drama.

Unity by Design: Midcentury Modernism at Winterthur

Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library

Jul
21
Sun
GET TICKETS
Museum Exhibitions, Visual Arts

Now through July 28, 2019

Winterthur has a secret. Scattered throughout the various offices, storage rooms, and libraries of our extensive campus is a midcentury modern furniture collection. Represented in this group of furnishings is an incredible spectrum of Knoll and Herman Miller objects purchased as early as 1957. Unity by Design explores the perceived juxtaposition of midcentury modernism at an institution rooted in traditional Americana. This lived collection of approximately 150 objects provides an exciting opportunity to both evaluate how American design operates in a cross-generational context and explore how midcentury modernism was and is experienced.

Visitors will be wrapped up in a midcentury modern interior as they explore the evolution of this distinctly American design movement. They will have the opportunity to take an in-depth look at the construction of midcentury modern furniture to better understand how industrialization and technical innovation influenced the design of these objects. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Winterthur’s first gallery exhibit on midcentury modern furniture! Exhibit is in the Society of Winterthur Fellows Gallery. Included with admission. Members free.

Hamilton and Burr: Who Wrote Their Stories?

Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library

Sun
History, Museum Exhibitions
July 11, 2019–January 5, 2020, Center Gallery
 

The hit Broadway musical Hamilton sparked renewed interest in the Founding Father and his relationship with Aaron Burr, whom he infamously dueled with on July 11, 1804. Opening on the 215th anniversary of the duel, our exhibit picks up where Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical left off and examines how Alexander Hamilton’s and Burr’s legacies were shaped by other Founding Fathers, a wife, a daughter, historical documents, and yes, even an enormously successful, modern-day musical.

The continuously interwoven fates and legacies of these two seemingly divisive figures, provides an exciting opportunity to explore what stories get written, which get remembered, and why.

Our story begins in the immediate aftermath of the shots in Weehawken, New Jersey, with original correspondence between Burr and Dr. David Hosack regarding Hamilton’s condition. An up-close look at Dr. Hosack, Rev. Benjamin Moore, and the events following the duel will begin to complicate our perceptions of Burr.

The exhibit then dives into the printed material and imagery surrounding these two figures to consider the ways in which Burr’s daughter, Theodosia Burr Alston, and Hamilton’s widow, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, helped shape the print culture to craft legacies of both men.

Setting the scene is an 18th-century velvet coat, similar to the one that inspired Miranda’s vision for the musical—which serves as a reminder that historical narratives can always be re-explored, reconsidered, and rewritten.

Echo In The Canyon celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of LA’s Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound. It was a moment (1965 to 1967) when bands came to LA to emulate The Beatles and Laurel Canyon emerged as a hotbed of creativity and collaboration for a new generation of musicians who would soon put an indelible stamp on the history of American popular music.
