Art of Fire: Glass Art from the WAM Collection
04/04/2015 to 03/05/2016Re-imagined anew and opening in April, the museum presents a compelling arrangement of the distinguished and growing glass art collection. for the new display, the museum consulted with Seattle-based independent curator and craft scholar Vicki Halper. Notably, Halper curated WAM's popular 2014 summer exhibition, Australian Glass Art, American Links for the Museum of Glass. Revealing WAM's rich holdings, the variety, quality, and artistry of Steuben glass will be presented. In fascinating ways, the exquisite work of the Steuben Glass Works, the world-class glass manufacturer (1903-2011), continues to beguile and inspire artists. The new installation will acknowledge and examine how contemporary glass artists explore the continuing allure and legacy of Steuben. Magnificent work by such living artists as Dante Marioni and Kiki Smith will be on view. The new collection display also features a new commission - an elaborate, Steuben-inspired candelabrum - by glass artist Andy Paiko. This special work will be effervescent! It incorporates an abundantly enthusiastic array of forms and techniques first developed by Steuben. Paiko's tapering candle holders that hang gracefully from the central form, each demonstrate the Steuben "air-twist" technique, perfected by designer George Thompson. The cinched, bell-shaped forms of the upper part of the large-scale candle holder are typical of Thompson's designs. WAM's collection includes original sketches by Thompson during his time working for Steuben, making Paiko's re-imagining of Thompson's forms particularly relevant to the collection. If you haven't spent time in the museum's glass art galleries recently, you should visit soon and prepare to be impressed by the beauty and history of this special artform!

Rhythm & Hues
09/04/2015 to 12/13/2015Rhythm and Hues explores the influence of music on modern and contemporary art practices. Both forms of artistic expression share compositional and stylistic similarities. In Lester Johnson's densely packed composition, City Women, the figures seem to pulse with energy. Their arms and legs are caught in beautiful stylized movements, reminiscent of a complicated musical score. Johnson’s work was heavily influenced by jazz, and it demonstrates the same shifts between tones and design, using bold colors and angled figures to mimic the sound of instruments interacting, tangling in an exchange of ideas. Drawn from the permanent collection, the works of art in Rhythm and Hues explore the parallel nature of visual art and music. From regional musical styles such as bluegrass, to cultural expressions such as American Indian dances, to the birth of jazz in the early modern era, music and visual art are intimately intertwined.
Spirited: Prohibition in America
09/01/2015 to 10/20/2015During the era of Prohibition, Americans could no longer manufacture, sell, or transport intoxicating beverages from 1920 until 1933. A new exhibit, Spirited: Prohibition in America, on view September 1st – October 20th at the Historical Museum, explores this tumultuous time in American history, when flappers and suffragists, bootleggers and temperance lobbyists, and legends, such as Al Capone and Carry Nation, took sides in this battle against the bottle.  Organized by the National Constitution Center, Philadelphia, PA, in partnership with Mid-America Arts Alliance, Kansas City, MO, Spirited: Prohibition in America explores the era of Prohibition, when America went “dry.” Visitors will learn about the complex issues that led to the repeal through the 21st Amendment in 1933. Through the exhibition, visitors will learn about the amendment process, the changing role of liquor in American culture, Prohibition’s impact on the roaring ‘20s, the role of women, and how current liquor laws vary from state to state.  Spirited has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It has been adapted and toured by Mid-America Arts Alliance.
Temporary "Transcribing History" Exhibit in Rotating Gallery
02/28/2015 to 01/15/2016Sending an email miles away is a piece of cake in this day and age, but the written word experienced many radical changes and developments to get to this point. Over the course of five thousand years, changes in written language and how individuals wrote messages changed how human beings recorded their existence and communicated with each other. The Museum of World Treasures invites you to explore these changes in a new Rotating Gallery exhibit, "Transcribing History: Pictographs, Parchment, and the Printing Press." Visit for a glimpse into the history of an important aspect of any civilization and discover how cuneiform on clay tablets paved the way for text messages on smartphones. Experience how the simple act of writing affects many aspects of everyday life and ultimately provides the power to change the world. The Museum’s Rotating Gallery hosts new temporary exhibits on an annual basis. Each year, our Exhibits Committee selects a Student Curator to research, design, and direct the creation of this exhibit under the guidance of the Museum’s Curator of Exhibits and Research, Tim Howard. This year’s Student Curator, Emily Simon, is a Newman University student studying English and history, with a minor in international studies.

There's nothing like someone who has lived your story and Ohio's MC MGK resilience has become a beacon of hope for thousands of kids across America. Penning rhymes about everything from addiction to family issues, MGK is a symbol of relentless perseverance to his fans and the MC is about to begin the next chapter of his already successful career. Born Colson Baker in Houston, Texas, MGK lived almost a dozen places, including Egypt, before moving to Denver, Colorado with his father after his mother began a new life with a new man. "I don't have a relationship with my mom, she left when I was nine years old," says MGK. In Denver, the Bakers lived with MGK's aunt. Though the father and son had each other, they couldn't lay claim to much else. As his dad fought depression and unemployment, the young MC split his time between wearing two school outfits and being bullied by the neighborhood kids. "I used to stand out because I was tall and I couldn't really fight back then," says MGK. "Then I got tired of getting beat up so I started fighting people with my words instead." In seventh grade, MGK found solace in rhyming after watching DMX's "We Right Here" video. "DMX is a huge influence on me because neither of us have siblings so we had to fight a lot of dark shit by ourselves," says MGK.

"The Grand Duchess" by Offenbach
10/16/2015 to 10/16/2015Jacques Offenbach composed The Grand Duchess at the height of his popularity. It debuted at the 1867 Paris Exposition to a royal audience including Napoleon III, Tsar Alexander II of Russia, King Edward VII of England, Emperor Franz-Joseph of Austria, and Prime Minister Otto von Bismarck of Prussia. In spite of poking fun at European nobility and their militaries, Von Bismarck laughed, "Yes! It's exactly like that!" and The Grand Duchess became an instant hit.

Hailed by critics as "off the charts terrific" as Anita in West Side Story, American Mezzo Kaitlyn Costello stars as the Grand Duchess. With a weakness for men in uniform, she becomes infatuated with the dashing young Private Fritz and quickly promotes him to Commander-in-Chief. Fritz is sung by American tenor Cullen Gandy in his WGO debut, after making a splash at Los Angeles Opera starring opposite opera diva Renee Fleming. They is joined by Metropolitan Opera bass William Powers as the blustering General Boom, whose premieres of Penderecki's Paradise Lost for Lyric Opera of Chicago, and Harbison's The Great Gatsby for the Metropolitan Opera and more than 100 other roles across the globe. WGO's new production is directed by Shawna Lucey, who served as assistant director for Santa Fe Opera's hit 2013 production of The Grand Duchess, and has served as stage director for productions at San Francisco Opera and the Bolshoi Opera, among others.

This is the only production of The Grand Duchess in the U.S. this season, and it will be performed in English to highlight the whimsical comedy.

In spite of poking fun at European nobility and their militaries, Von Bismarck laughed, "Yes! It's exactly like that!" and The Grand Duchess became an instant hit.

Hailed by critics as "off the charts terrific" as Anita in West Side Story, American Mezzo Kaitlyn Costello stars as the Grand Duchess. With a weakness for men in uniform, she becomes infatuated with the dashing young Private Fritz and quickly promotes him to Commander-in-Chief. Fritz is sung by American tenor Cullen Gandy in his WGO debut, after making a splash at Los Angeles Opera starring opposite opera diva Renee Fleming. They is joined by Metropolitan Opera bass William Powers as the blustering General Boom, whose premieres of Penderecki's Paradise Lost for Lyric Opera of Chicago, and Harbison's The Great Gatsby for the Metropolitan Opera and more than 100 other roles across the globe. WGO's new production is directed by Shawna Lucey, who served as assistant director for Santa Fe Opera's hit 2013 production of The Grand Duchess, and has served as stage director for productions at San Francisco Opera and the Bolshoi Opera, among others.

This is the only production of The Grand Duchess in the U.S. this season, and it will be performed in English to highlight the whimsical comedy.

10/22/2015 to 10/22/2015Psycho is a 1960 American psychological thriller-horror film directed by Alfred Hitchcock starring Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin, and Janet Leigh. The film centers on the encounter between a secretary, Marion Crane (Leigh), who ends up at a secluded motel after embezzling money from her employer, and the motel’s disturbed owner-manager, Norman Bates (Perkins), and its aftermath. When originally made, the film was seen as a departure from Hitchcock’s previous film North by Northwest, having been filmed on a low budget, with a television crew and in black and white. Psycho initially received mixed reviews, but outstanding box office returns prompted reconsideration which led to overwhelming critical acclaim and four Academy Award nominations, including Best Supporting Actress for Leigh and Best Director for Hitchcock. It is now considered one of Hitchcock’s best films and praised as a work of cinematic art by international film critics and film scholars. Ranked among the greatest films of all time, it set a new level of acceptability for violence, deviant behavior and sexuality in American films, and is widely considered to be the earliest example of the slasher film genre. After Hitchcock’s death in 1980, Universal Studios began producing follow-ups: three sequels, a remake, a television film spin-off, and a TV series. In 1992, the US Library of Congress deemed the film “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.

Asleep at the Wheel
10/23/2015 to 10/23/2015Asleep at the Wheel is celebrating their 45th Anniversary and touring in support of their new album, Still the King: A Tribute to the Music of Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys. The western swing revivalists will perform live at the historic Orpheum Theatre on Friday, October 23. Asleep at the Wheel has seen miles and miles of Texas. They got their kicks on Route 66. And, in 2010, the band clicked another milestone on the odometer – their 40th anniversary. Now in their 45th year, the band continues to introduce the western swing genre to a new generation on tour. “It’s been an amazing ride. From Paw Paw to San Francisco to Austin, we’ve seen it all,” says Wheel front man Ray Benson. “But, rest assured, there is still so many exciting projects in the works such as our brand new tribute album …The Wheel keeps rolling!” Since their inception, the band has won nine GRAMMY awards, released more than 20 studio albums and charted more than 20 singles on the Billboard country charts. In 1971, the band signed their first record deal after Van Morrison mentioned they “play great country music” in an interview in Rolling Stone. Their debut record, Comin’ Right At Ya, was released in 1973 on United Artists. The release of Texas Gold in 1975 brought the band national recognition, with the single “The Letter That Johnny Walker Read” becoming a top-ten country hit. The band has been awarded “Touring Band of the Year” (CMAs, 1976) and the “Lifetime Achievement in Performance” (Americana Music Awards 2009). In 2010, they earned a GRAMMY nomination in the newly minted Best Americana Album category for their critically acclaimed Willie & The Wheel.
