Art & Object with Pilgrim Hall
September 9, 7:00 pm EST
September 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join Dr. Donna Curtin from Pilgrim Hall Museum along with artisans, historians and educators in unraveling the intertwined stories of art and object from the nation’s oldest continuously operating public Museum, with an up-close look at highlights of the collection, including a 17th-century great chair originally owned by Governor William Bradford, a hand-carved wooden bust of Squanto that is the only surviving element of a 19th-century art installation, a meticulous century-old model of the ship Mayflower, and a monumental history painting of a “first contact” event that never actually happened.
This program is in support of Another Crossing: Artists Revisit the Mayflower Voyage. This international exhibition examines the cultural impact of this pivotal event on American, Indigenous, and world cultures.
For some, the Mayflower voyage and subsequent settlement of Plymouth Colony is a treasured historical event, while for others, the colonization and treatment of the Wampanoag peoples illustrate imperialism and cultural ruin. Through Another Crossing, the artists responded to this complex part of our history and its impact on our culture over the last four centuries.
