VIRTUAL: Nutcrackers -- A Colorful History

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Meeting via email.** 

You may never have given those funny painted statues much thought but the history of nutcrackers involves the development of tools from the Stone Age to the Industrial Age. Their story encompasses the political changes of Communist-era Germany, a Russian ballet and American G.I.s. These are all elements in the history of the charming, colorful creations we enjoy today. Our look at nutcrackers will include a nod to other traditional Christmas decorations such as pyramids and ‘smokers’ that have developed along with them. Led by art historian Mary Woodward, who serves as a guide at several Historic New England properties. She previously served as Public Programs Coordinator and Educator at the Concord Museum. Woodward has a B.A. in Art History from Furman University and a M.A. in Art History from Emory University. She has 40+ years of experience in museums of all shapes and sizes, from the comprehensive collection at the Cleveland Museum of Art to the one-room log cabin birthplace of President James K. Polk.

Virtual European Art Series: Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel

"Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel"

The Sistine Chapel is one of the most beautiful and most famous works of art in the world. Dive into Michelangelo’s inspiration and process (did he really lie down as he painted the ceiling?) and consider how the masterwork has been altered by time and restoration.

About the presenter, Jane Oneail: Jane was leading tours at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston when she first began to appreciate the special magic that happens when people look at art together and share their genuine reactions and questions. "Talking about art requires bravery - you're inherently vulnerable when you share your perspective. There is joy in seeing things in a new way - and in simply shifting gears to appreciate the beauty and poetry of everyday life." Jane holds a master’s in Art History from Boston University and a master’s in Education from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. She was born and raised in NH and has worked at some of the state’s most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane founded the Currier’s Alzheimer’s Cafe and led the tour program for the museum and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Zimmerman House. She has taught Art History at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at Southern New Hampshire University.

**Register on Zoom HERE** OR

Join us in person to view the lecture on the big screen in our meeting room!

Presented in collaboration with Rockport Public Library.

VIRTUAL: Best Bike Rides in New England

Author David Sobel will give a presentation based on his new book, Best Bike Rides in New England, in this Zoom webinar. Sobel will reveal some of his favorite rides, discuss the variables he uses when designing a ride, explain how to design rides using online tools like "Map My Ride" or "Strava," advocate for incorporating bike riding 3-5 times a week into your personal wellness goals, and suggest a great ride in or around your community. 

About The Book: The Northeast provides some of the most exciting cycling in the United States: sweeping vistas, seaside towns, fall colors, and more. With this comprehensive guide, New Hampshire local David Sobel offers up rides in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. No matter the state, there’s a ride here for everyone, with a range of mileage and difficulty level so both beginner and experienced cyclists can enjoy. Take in the scenery and stop for surf and turf on a moderate 17-mile trip through Mystic, Connecticut. Challenge yourself on hilly vistas and cool off in Cold River while biking Walpole, New Hampshire. Or take it easy while travelling back in time through Concord, Massachusetts. In addition to detailed directions, each route features annotated maps, charming photography, elevation profiles, and suggestions for entertainment and dining along the way. This is a must-have guide to discovering New England’s hidden gems on two wheels.

About The Author: David Sobel is a professor emeritus in the education department at Antioch University New England. He consults and speaks widely on child development and place-based education with schools, environmental organizations, and the National Park Service. He lives in Harrisville, New Hampshire.

VIRTUAL: An Introduction To Hanukkah

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Meeting via email.**  

Learn about Hanukkah -- a fun-filled eight-day festival celebrated by people all around the word who practice the Jewish faith -- in this virtual presentation from the Lappin Foundation. 

Hanukkah is a holiday honoring the Maccabees's victory over King Antiochus, who forbade Jews to practice their religion. It is celebrated on the 25th day of Kislev (the ninth month of the Hebrew calendar), which is generally in late November to mid-December. For eight nights, candles are lit in a menorah, a candelabrum with spaces for nine candles -- one for each night plus a helper candle called the shamash. On each night, one more candle is added and lit. During the lighting, people recite special blessings and prayers. Families also play games, sing songs, and exchange gifts during the celebration. 

The Lappin Foundation is a Massachusetts-based non-profit organization that provides exciting programs for children, teens and adults that spark an interest in Jewish living and learning, as well as foster positive relationships through education with individuals of all faiths. The Foundation’s core mission is to enhance Jewish identity across generations. Learn more about the Foundation HERE.

VIRTUAL: The Fascinating Stories Behind Our Favorite Christmas Traditions

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Meeting via email.** 

Author Brian Earl will deliver a presentation based on his new book, Christmas Past: The Fascinating Stories Behind Our Favorite Holiday's Traditions, in this Zoom webinar.

About The Book: Behind every Christmas tradition is a story — usually, a forgotten one. Each year, as we decorate a tree, build a gingerbread house, and get ready for a visit from St. Nicholas, we’re continuing generations-old narratives, while being largely unaware of their starting chapters. But knowing how these traditions began adds a new level of depth to our Christmas spirit, as well as an arsenal of anecdotes to share at Christmas parties. Christmas Past: The Fascinating Stories Behind Our Favorite Holiday’s Traditions reveals the surprising, quirky, mysterious, and sometimes horrifying stories behind the most wonderful time of the year. Covering traditions ancient and modern, Christmas Past is filled with stories of happy accidents, cultural histories, criminal capers (including tomb raiders and con artists), and hidden connections between Christmas and broader social, economic, and technological influences.

About The Author: Brian Earl is a designer, writer, and podcaster in Silicon Valley. He’s also one of those people who puts up the Christmas tree on Halloween and takes it down on Valentine’s Day. His "Christmas Past" podcast debuted in 2016 to immediate acclaim. With a storytelling and production style meant to mimic public radio news pieces, the podcast features expert guests and listener-submitted Christmas memories, all in bite-sized, 10- to 15-minute episodes. Brian has either been interviewed, or the podcast has received mention, in Vanity FairModern Woman/USA TodayThe Financial TimesBest LifeBustle, Huffington PostPopSugar, and many other local and national media outlets. Brian has also been a frequent freelance contributor to The Boston GlobeThe Boston Phoenix, and several other Boston-area publications.

VIRTUAL: America’s Favorite Holiday Movie -- A Look Inside 'It’s a Wonderful Life'

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Meeting via email.** 

Voted the most inspirational movie ever made by the American Film Institute, Frank Capra’s "It’s a Wonderful Life" has been a beloved Christmas classic for many generations. The snowbound streets of Bedford Falls, the desperate travails of George Bailey, and the discovery of Zuzu’s petals have become traditional signatures of the holiday season. Yet when the film was released in 1946, it was a box-office flop, won no Academy Awards, and was largely forgotten—until it was rediscovered through endless airings on local TV stations beginning in the 1970s and on annual Christmas eve broadcasts on NBC starting in 1992. This presentation will examine the fascinating story of "It’s a Wonderful Life," looking at the challenges of how it was made, its surprisingly dark portrait of small-town life, and how it became the ultimate portrayal of holiday goodwill and cheer.
Led by Brian Rose, a professor emeritus at Fordham University, where he taught for 38 years in the Department of Communication and Media Studies. He’s written several books on television history and cultural programming, and conducted more than a hundred Q&A’s with leading directors, actors, and writers for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the Screen Actors Guild, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Directors Guild of America.

Virtual: History of America's Kitchens

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. YOU WILL RECEIVE A ZOOM LINK ONCE YOU REGISTER BY CLICKING HERE** 

From the colonial period to the present, the kitchen has been a source of nourishment and comfort. The way Americans have lived with their kitchens has changed dramatically over the course of three centuries. Historic New England curator Nancy Carlisle will discuss how the American kitchen has evolved from the seventeenth-century to the present. Drawing on her book America’s Kitchens, co- authored with Melinda Narardinov, Ms. Carlisle will discuss the technological and social changes that have taken place in this room and suggest how these innovations have transformed kitchen work and changed women’s lives.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Historic New England curator Nancy Carlisle  

For thirty years, Nancy Carlisle, Senior Curator of Collections, has been a vital part of Historic New England’s efforts to protect, preserve, and interpret the region’s unique history and how it fits within the cultural story of the United States. Founded in 1910, Historic New England is dedicated to preserving unique structures and significant objects. The organization owns over thirty historic houses, and has collections with over 123,000 objects, and more than a million documents, historical photographs and ephemera. Nancy and other staff members use the collections to create interpretive recreations of New Englanders’ domestic lives from the seventeenth through the twentieth century and illuminate the region’s rich history. Nancy Carlisle has made significant contributions to Historic New England’s mission and her work continues to challenge and excite her. She plays many vital roles at Historic New England. She enjoys them all. Examining objects and interpreting the stories that they tell about people is one of the great rewards that she takes from her work. That mission remains a driving motivation and fits well with the mission of Historic New England. In fact, when she has compared other institutions to her own, Nancy readily admits that Historic New England is exactly the right place for her.

Registration required via Zoom link. Presented in collaboration with Rockport Public Library.
