LADIES & GENTLEMAN & CHILDREN OF ALL AGES: THE HISTORY OF THE CIRCUS!
2:00 PM

Visual History Lecture with Marilyn Carminio

When the final curtain fell on the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus last May, a 146-year American tradition came to an end.  This lecture presentation will trace circus history from the days of the Greeks & Romans to the present with special attention to the role of the circus in 19th century America.

The circus is a world within a world filled with acrobats, clowns, tightrope walkers, contortionists, bareback riders, lions, tigers, outrageous sideshows, and more.  On our journey we'll meet two of America's greatest showmen ~ P.T. Barnum and John Ringling ~ who created the golden age of American circuses. We will hear the moving story of George & Willie, two brothers kidnapped during the 1920s and enslaved in a circus sideshow.

If you ever dreamed as a child about running away from home to join the circus, step right up and take a trip into the magical history of the circus!

NORTH SHORE AUDUBON Presents BIRD BANDING BASICS
7:00 PM

Bird Banding is the attachment of a small, individually numbered metal or plastic tag to the leg of a wild bird to enable individual identification. Robert Paxton says “There is nothing that we know about bird behavior that doesn’t come from banding them: where they go, how long they live, whether they are monogamous or polygamous, how many you have at your feeder, where they winter, where they breed. You think you have one at your feeder and then you start banding them and you have ten. Everything we know about bird behavior you have to be able to identify the individual bird and that is done by banding.” Lecturer:  Robert Paxton, who himself was a master bird bander for 50 years, only does bird extraction from mist nets now. He has been retired for a few years. He is also a professor emeritus of history at Columbia University.

VISUAL ART LECTURE: WOMEN ABSTRACT ARTISTS (1945-1970) with Professor Thomas Germano
2:00 PM

Societal shifts in the post WWII era made it possible for more women to work professionally as artists, yet their work was often dismissed in the male dominated art world. Reflecting an international language that transcended national and regional narratives, abstraction dominated artistic practice during these years. Inspired by the MoMA's 'Making Spaces' exhibit and drawn mostly from MoMA's collection, works presented will range from the boldly gestural canvases of Lee Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler, and Joan Mitchell; geometries by Lygia Clark, Lygia Pape, and Gego; reductive abstractions of Agnes Martin, Anne Truitt, and Jo Baer; fiber weavings of Magdalena Abakanowicz, Sheila Hicks, and Lenore Tawney; and the process-oriented sculptures of Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, and Eva Hesse. Join Professor Thomas Germano who will present this visual lecture that reflects the MoMA's 2017 'Making Spaces' exhibition.
