In the 1800s Americans became increasingly interested in collecting souvenirs that physically connected them to important places, people and events in the emerging national story. Fragments of a cherished quilt, gavels made from wood from famous trees, or bits stone collected on tourists’ journeys all tell us something about their collectors and what places and events they deemed historic. Explore this unique and timeless exhibition with Hilary Anderson Stelling, curator of the show. Free.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is is hosting a virtual event called the Million Mile Run. Our event may only be 5K, but that multiplied by lots of participants adds up fast! Last year, this run raised and donated in excess of $5,000.00!

Alexandra "Alex" Scott founded Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation on what seemed to be a simple concept. In the year 2000, when Alex was just 4 years old and battling neuroblastoma, she told her parents that she wanted to have a lemonade stand in her front yard. She surprised everyone when she announced her plan to donate the money from the stand to "her hospital" to help the doctors find a cure for all kids with cancer. This event is being hosted by Fitness Together in Lexington and sponsored by FLIR in Billerica and Arlex Oil in Lexington in efforts to raise money and awareness for the battle against childhood cancer. Thank you for joining us in support of this amazing Foundation!

Reinventing the Map
Susan Schulten, Professor, University of Denver

In a culture saturated with maps, we are accustomed to making them instantly and representing virtually any type of data. Technology makes this possible, but our contemporary use of maps is rooted in a shift that took place well over a century ago. In the 19th century Americans began to use maps not only to identify locations and represent the landscape, but to organize, display, and analyze information. Through maps of the environment, the distribution of the institution of slavery, the census, epidemics, and even their own history, Americans learned to view themselves and their nation in new ways. This program, part of a series related to the Museum and Library’s collection of historic maps is sponsored by the Ruby W. and LaVon P. Linn Foundation. Free.

 Lexington Arts and Crafts Painters Guild Presents

Martha Wakefield, A Demonstration in Watercolors
Sunday, September 14, 2014 
2pm to 4pm

 Artist Martha Wakefield captures the emotional context of a landscape that creates a visual memory of the essence of home.  She works in watercolor, oils and acrylics.

Wakefield has studied with Wolf Kahn, Jon Imber and Skip Lawrence.  Each of these artists has inspired her color perception and composition.  She also cites the Bay Area Figurative painters as important influencers especially Richard Diebenkorn for his abstraction of the landscape and luminous surfaces, Elmer Bischoff for his sophisticated palette and Nathan Oliveira for his emotional imagery and mark making.

She is a signature member of the International Society of Acrylic Painters, The Rhode Island Watercolor Society and is a juried member of the Cambridge Art Association of Massachusetts. A staff writer for The Palette Magazine she writes about technique and professional artists.  She also teaches art workshops in the metro-Boston area.  Wakefield’s paintings have won many awards and are in private and corporate collections in United States and Canada.

Visit www.marthawakefield.com to view more of her work.

Join us for an inspiring afternoon.  Speak with the artist and with the many artists of the Guild and find out what it means to be part of this community of artists.  Perhaps you will be inspired to take a class or join the group.

Admission and parking are free.

This walk is geared for children in grades K – 5 accompanied by an adult. Join Fran Ludwig for a prowl around Parker Meadow to look for bugs, tadpoles, frogs, snails, and fish. We’ll dip a net into the water to see what kinds of critters are wriggling around below the surface.

Bring rain boots if you have them and be prepared to get dirty. If you have a small bug box or magnifier, bring it along. Rain or lightning will cancel the event.

Meet at the Revere St. entrance to Parker Meadow. Limited parking is there; additional parking is available on neighborhood streets across Revere St.

This program celebrates two of England’s most notable composers: George Butterworth and Sir Edward Elgar. Butterworth, one of the most promising English composers to emerge at the turn of the 20th century, died at the age of 21 at the Battle of the Somme in WWI. His masterpiece A Shropshire Lad demonstrates what great talent he possessed at such an early age. Elgar’s stunning choral masterpiece Dream of Gerontius — heard only twice in the past 28 years in Boston — marks the instant when a person leaves this world and the journey of the soul begins. Elgar’s melodies convey faith, sorrow, and wonder all at once in one of the most inspiring works ever written.

Butterworth | A Shropshire Lad
Elgar | Dream of Gerontius
   Barbara Quintilliani, dramatic soprano
   Ray Bauwens, tenor
   Aaron Engebreth, baritone

Join us to walk off those turkey leftovers as we explore the Cranberry Hill Conservation area and the adjacent watershed lands of the Cambridge Watershed Authority. Along the way we will enjoy some of the best vistas as well as one of the largest and best-preserved fieldstone foundations to be found in Lexington.

We will hike in all but steady rain. Wear appropriate footgear for hilly woods trails and actual weather conditions. Hiking poles would be useful, especially if the ground is frozen. Meet Walk Leader at the end of parking lot C in the Cranberry Hill Office Complex. The entrance to the office park is on Massachusetts Avenue, just south of Marrett Road.

The purpose of the walks will be to simply get out and use those snowshoes that you have tucked away in your basement or garage, while enjoying exploring some of our open space parcels in their winter splendor. Watch for further details when we publish information about our winter walk series.

The appetizer for this delectable program is English composer Sir Edward Elgar’s poignant and romantic Serenade for Strings. Our own wonderful pianist, Paul Carlson, offers up one of the most beloved Russian piano concertos of all time for the next course: Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 features high drama and soaring melodies, ingredients Tchaikovsky uses well. Mendelssohn’s boisterous “Italian” Symphony No. 4 imparts the final flavor of the evening, balancing out this very European presentation for the senses.

Elgar | Serenade for Strings in E Minor
