Participating institutions in the Cultural District open their doors to area educators for this special annual event. Teachers are invited to join Museum staff and volunteers to inaugurate the 2012-2013 school year; they can then walk from one Cultural District institution to the next to learn about programs available for educators and students, participate in gallery tours, gather complimentary resources, and enjoy refreshments.
This program for families with young children is led by a docent and includes a gallery project designed by the Museum's education department. Both the tour and project focus on a few works in the Modern's collection or special exhibition. Registration is not required, but a sign-up sheet is provided at the front desk the day of the program. Attendance is limited; admission is free.
An internationally recognized photographer, Nicholas Nixon has helped shape the dialogue of photographic discourse for over four decades. His work gained broad attention when it was included in one of the most influential exhibitions of the 1970s, New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape at the George Eastman House in 1975. His first solo museum exhibition in 1976 was curated by John Szarkowski at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Sounds Modern invites you to experience a musical counterpart to the paintings of Lucian Freud. As Freud was reinventing the tradition of portraiture, a generation of English composers was reinventing their relationship with a musical tradition. At the heart of this movement was the ensemble, The Fires of London, formed by Peter Maxwell Davies and an eclectic group of composers and performers. Their concerts delivered an entirely new musical experience.
