Email:info@brattleboromuseum.org

Fifty years ago, the 20th century prophet of technology and media, Marshall McLuhan, exclaimed that “we shape our tools and therefore our tools shape us.” David Cohen explores this theme and the perplexing difficulty we have detecting the ways in which the automobile has altered our internal landscape and transformed our worldview. To journey further inside this phenomenon, we’ll employ McLuhan’s quip that stunned our culture a half a century ago –– “the medium is the message” –– to probe the subtle and tricky neuropsychology behind how the car radically mediates our sensory experience of the ecological and social environments we encounter. We’ll also consider why the message that the automobile has bestowed upon us has become so elusive and hard for us to notice.

The brothers have recently shared the stage with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Ben Sollee, Gin Wigmore, Chris Thomas King, Langhorne Slim, Howie Day, and The Lone Bellow, to name a few.

American paintings were the last collection assembled by Shelburne Museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb (1888-1960) in the late 1950s. Relying on her own keen eye and assisted by leading figures in museums and galleries, Mrs. Webb purchased works by Copley, Cole, Durand, Homer, Prior, Heade, Bierstadt, Lane, Johnson, Cassatt, Grandma Moses, and Andrew Wyeth, among many others. In the years following her death, the collection grew to number over 1,000 works. Shelburne Museum is the only museum in our region to hold American paintings, with particular strengths in New England landscapes and portraiture. In May 2014 the museum reopened its Webb Gallery after months of renovation with Painting a Nation: American Art at Shelburne Museum to explore the creation of this canonical gathering of paintings within an institution better known as a center of American folk art. The American Eye will focus attention on American artists, their artistic inspirations and the importance of American art in the shaping of a national identity. Noted scholars participating in the day’s discussions and gallery tours include museum director Tom Denenberg, independent art historian Marc Simpson, Carol Troyen, the Kristin and Roger Servison Curator Emerita of American Paitings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Ellery Foutch, assistant professor of American Studies at Middlebury College. A limited number of symposium scholarships are available.

Author Ernest Hebert Book Signing 'Howard Elman's Farewell'
City:Norwich
Place:Norwich Bookstore
Price:FREE
Time:7:00PM

"Hebert’s American saga, with its colorful characters and intriguing word play, is an enduring accomplishment."—Publishers Weekly Suppose all a man has left is his imagination. Then what? Part Falstaff, part King Lear, but all American, Howard Elman was a fifty-something workingman when he burst onto the literary scene in 'The Dogs of March', the first novel of the Darby Chronicles. Now in this, its seventh and final installment, the Darby constable is an eighty-something widower who wants to do “a great thing” before he motors off into the sunset. Howard Elman’s Farewell begins as a coming of (old) age story, morphs into a murder mystery, expands into a family saga, and in the end might just follow Howard Elman into the spirit world. This is a novel for people who like New England fiction with humor, pathos, and just a touch of magical realism. Please join us for this special event!
