Step back in time to the eighteenth century and the lives of the Schuyler family in their Georgian Mansion overlooking the Hudson Rive r. The Schuylers were a prominent Dutch family in New York in the eighteen th and nineteenth centuries whose descendants played a central role in the formation of the United States. Philip Schuyler\, the renowned Revolution ary War General\, U.S. Senator\, and business entrepreneur\, and his wife\ , Catherine Van Rensselaer Schuyler raised eight children in their Albany Home. Throughout the Schuyler family occupancy from 1763每1804\, the mansio n was the site of military strategizing\, political hobnobbing\, elegant s ocial afairs\, and an active family life. Enjoy a guided tour of the mansi on as well as an orientation exhibition in the Visitor Center. After our t our of the Schuyler*s home\, enjoy a bufet lunch at the Albany Pump Statio n.

Clothing\, decorative arts\, portraits\, and manuscripts tell the stori es of the Schuyler women\, Catherine Van Rensselaer Schuyler and her daugh ters\, Angelica Schuyler Church\, Elizabeth (Eliza) Schuyler Hamilton\, an d Margaret (Peggy) Schuyler Van Rensselaer\, and how they witnessed histor y unfold. The exhibition focuses not only on their genteel lives\, but als o on their roles as mothers\, social managers\, businesswomen\, and revolu tionaries. Eliza*s wedding to Alexander Hamilton took place in the house i n 1780 and their marriage gave her a front row seat to events that shaped the country in the years following the revolution. Angelica*s life abroad introduced her to prominent figures of the time\; including Thomas Jeferso n and artist John Trumbull. The Albany Institute has secured a loan of the rarely exhibited John Trumbull portrait of Angelica Schuyler Church from a private collection and loans from the Metropolitan Museum of Art among o thers.

WHAT IS JUNETEENTH?

\n
    \n
  • Juneteenth is the olde st known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States .
  • \n
  • Dating back to 1865\, it was on June 19th that Union sol diers\, led by Major General Gordon Granger\, landed at Galveston\, Texas with the news that the Civil War had ended and that the enslaved were now free.
  • \n
  • Note that this was two and a half years after Presid ent Lincoln*s Emancipation Proclamation\, which had become official on Jan uary 1\, 1863.?
  • \n
  • < span style='font-weight: 400\;'>The Emancipation Proclamation had little i mpact in Texas due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the ne w Executive Order.
  • \n
  • June 19th\, 2020 will mark the 155th an niversary of Juneteenth.?

Artist: William Turnbull\ , Scottish\, 1922-2012
\nTitle: Large Horse
\n
Date: 1990
\n
Media: Bronze

\n\n \n \n\n

William Turnbull*s sculptures of horses feel both familiar and alien. Here\, the mask-like form of the head narrows like a horse*s m uzzle\, but the eyes appear at the center of the face\, rather than the si des. From a side view\, the sculpture also resembles an adze〞a tool simila r to an axe whose blade is perpendicular rather than parallel to the handl e. Look for? similarities between the horse*s head and the blade of an adz e\, and the arcing neck to its handle. In Turnbull*s words\, when depictin g horses\, ※what interests me#is how the part can represent the whole. I m ean that when you see the horse*s head you feel the whole horsee#And when I make horses* heads#it*s always been with the idea of having a metaphoric quality.§

\n

For Turnbull\, the adze was an everyday object that had simi lar qualities to a horse*s head. Take a closer look at an object in your d aily life.

Title: Stego saurus
\n
Date: 1972
\n
Media: Painted steel

\n\n \n \n\n

Since its installation in 1973\, Alexander Calder*s?Stego saurus has become an iconic sy mbol of Downtown Hartford. When you walk under and around it on your next visit\, notice how the arches intersect and the triangles create overlappi ng patterns. Together these abstract shapes suggest the form of a stegosau rus with its sloping\, spiked back. Calder was commissioned to design the sculpture by the Ella Burr McManus Trust (established in 1923) in memory o f Alfred E. Burr\, Ella*s father and founder of the Hartford Times.

The scene here is the intersection of the Avenue de Clichy and the Avenue de St. Ouen\, near An quetin*s home in Paris. The artist transformed this ordinary street corner into a magical environment through his use of color.

\nTitle: In Orbit?
\nDate: 1957
\nMedia : Wool

\n\n \n \n\n

Albers trained at the Bauhaus Weaving Workshop where she became a master weaver. She was instrumental in expanding ideas about textiles beyond their useful quality or designation as ※craft.§ Albers ca lled her work ※pictorial weavings§ to emphasize their significance as art. ?

\n

Albers used looms to mak e her textile designs. The loom is a device used to make fabric. It weaves threads over and under other threads to create a textile. Albers embraced new techniques and unusual materials that further defined modern weaving. She manipulated the loom to twist threads\, resulting in intricate\, text ured layers and dense surfaces. She used color\, too\, to further delineat e geometric shapes and patterns such as the two circles and a cross that a ppear to float across this composition.

Origin: Native American\, Northeaste rn Woodlands??
\nMade by: Native Peoples?
\nTitle: Bowl with handles
\n
Date: 1740每60?
\nMaterial: Burled ash??
\n

\n\n \n \n\n

Having occupied the continent for tens of thousands of years bef ore European settlement\, the Native peoples of the Northeastern Woodlands (made up of many different tribes) relied on the forest for their livelih ood. This hand-carved bowl is notable for its early date\, size\, and the craftsman*s mastery of the materials. It was carved from the burl of a tre e\, a rounded outgrowth filled with deformed grain or small knots. Because the grain is twisted and interlocked\, burl wood can chip and break unpre dictably\, but once carved it is solid and resistant to splitting\, making it ideal for bowls and tools.?
