    Back With A New Performance! Radio’s Fascinatin’ Rhythm
    Sunday, July 21, 2019, 2 pm

    Host Michael Lasser Presents E-Lec-Tri-Ci-Ty! Songs From The Time Of Tiffany
    $15 MWPAI members, $25 general public, $10 students

    For more than 35 years, radio personality and music historian Michael Lasser has been speaking about popular music as social history, about songs and the America they reflect. In this program, singer Cindy Miller and singer/pianist Alan Jones perform songs from the time of Louis C. Tiffany with insight and delight, while Lasser gives entertaining historical context. In the years before World War I, when Tiffany was providing a way to make electric light beautiful, America hitched its new horseless carriage to a technological star. Our songwriters were there to give voice to a time when age-old dreams became commonplace reality. Book signing follows with light refreshments and a cash bar.

    Your Land, My Land: Immigrant Artists in the United States
    Thursday, March 1, 2018 - Tuesday, December 31, 2019

    Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Museum of Art is primarily a collection of art of the United States. With the exception of people indigenous to this continent, we are a nation of immigrants. Many “American” artists, such as Thomas Cole, were actually born in other countries. In the arts, as in other areas of life, persons who have come to the United States have been inspired by their new home. This gallery is dedicated to showcasing aspects of the collection that reflect the rich tradition of artists who traveled to the United States as children or adults, developed their talent, and shared it for the appreciation of all.

The exhibition is an exploration of craftsmanship, ingenuity, and pure aesthetic beauty that also examines the themes of 19th-century women artisans and innovations in industrial technology.

    Astonishing Brilliance: Art, Light and the Transformation of American Culture
    Saturday, August 3, 2019 - Sunday, March 15, 2020

    From out of the darkness came light, and art changed forever.
    Imagine trying to read this article by candlelight. For the majority of Americans living in the early 1800s, the candle, fireplace, and moon were the only light available at night so their days ended when the sun set, often plunging them into complete darkness. The impact of artificial lighting in the 1800s was more profound than digital technology is today.
