An Historian in the Gallery
Dr. Jay Tartell

3pm
Free with admission
Reservations not needed 

Join historian and collector Dr. Jay Tartell for an unforgettable trip through the Jazz Age using records played on period talking machines. An expert on the early history of the phonograph and recording industry, Dr. Tartell is also a connoisseur of the jazz recordings of the Twenties, a selection of which he has curated (along with our exhibit of rare phonographs, Victrolas and radios) specially for the Museum. By sharing his collection of voices from the past, the events, performers, composers, and musical styles of the '20's will achieve new vibrancy.

Family Sundays

Family Tour, 1 pm at the Museum
Artmaking, 1:30 - 4:00 pm at The Manes Center
Free with admission
Reservations not needed

Through art investigations inspired by works in our current exhibition, families explore a variety of materials and art concepts. A focus on process and exploration fosters confidence in artmaking, as well as emphasizing creative problem-solving. This drop-in program encourages families to stop by the museum for collaborative artmaking and conversation for thirty to forty-five minutes. A different project each week facilitated by our museum educator supports different artmaking strategies, an opportunity to learn new art vocabulary and artists, and expands our idea of what art can be.
