The Historical Society of Rockland County Is Reopening to the Public with New Exhibitions When: August 19, 2020, through 2021 Where: HSRC History Center, 20 Zukor Road, New City Admission: $5/person; children under 7 are free (due to COVID-19 conditions, admission is limited, and prepaid tickets are required). Purchase tickets here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4681990 Gallery 1: INSIDE OUT: Women, Fashion & The Fight for the Vote The struggle for suffrage affected American women’s lives both before and after they won the vote. In this special Centennial Exhibition, we mine the Historical Society of Rockland County’s collections to address questions about how the fight for women’s suffrage changed fashion, and how women’s fashion—and lives—changed in response to suffrage. Fashion served women as social currency for centuries and has been used to oppress as much as to express. By 1920, however, women were using fashion to proclaim their freedom and political independence. What may have been the most significant evolution in American women’s fashion happened alongside the ratification of the 19th Amendment as the New Woman proudly took her place in American society, dressed to the nines. Gallery 2: ROCKLAND VOICES featuring Mariel Farlow — Being of Light Our semi-permanent exhibition illustrating Rockland County's rich history has reopened for a new season!  Through highlights from the HSRC's permanent collection, visitors will learn about several elements that make up Rockland’s history. The core exhibition explores the Lenape, the Dutch, Treason of the Revolution, Slavery, and Nyack Turnpike.  New for 2020-2021 MARIEL FARLOW — BEING OF LIGHT This year marks the 40th anniversary of the installation of one of the most controversial public sculptures in Rockland.In the hot summer of 1980, Mariel Farlow set out to install a monumental sculpture on the grounds of the Rockland County Courthouse in New City. The effort was the culmination of months of preparation, proposals, designs, fabrication, creativity, hard work, and a bit of serendipity. Over the past four decades, however, her 20-foot, 3,000-pound sculpture, Being of Light (originally titled Man of Light), has generated more controversy than any other piece of public art in Rockland County’s history -- to the detriment of its creator’s original intent.  This special exhibit explores the serendipity, controversy, and philosophy behind Being of Light, which still stands in front of the Rockland County Courthouse, exactly where it was placed 40 years ago. It also renews the call for Farlow's artist’s statement and poem to be mounted on the base of the sculpture, as she had planned in 1980, so viewers can reflect on its meaning and, once and for all, we can let the controversy end. The HSRC's gallery exhibitions run from August 19, 2020, through 2021. They will be open to the public as COVID-19 conditions permit. In the fall of 2020, admission is by advance reservation only, Wednesdays-Fridays between 1 and 4 pm.

Through the eyes of three stray dogs wandering the streets of Istanbul, STRAY explores what it means to live as a being without status or security. As they search for food and shelter, Zeytin, Nazar and Kartal embark on inconspicuous journeys through Turkish society that allow us an unvarnished portrait of human life — and their own canine culture.Whether they lead us into bustling streets or decrepit ruins, the gaze of these strays act as windows into the overlooked corners of society. The film is a critical observation of human civilization through the unfamiliar gaze of dogs and a sensory voyage into new ways of seeing. 2020, USA, 72 minutes, documentaryDiscussion on Tuesday, March 16 at 7:00, with Suzanne Mitchell of Rockland Organized for Sustainability and Josh Abolt, Kennel Manager at Hi-Tor Animal Care Center.All tickets: $12“[A] virtuosic feature documentary debut.

The Historical Society of Rockland County Is Reopening to the Public with New Exhibitions When: August 19, 2020, through 2021 Where: HSRC History Center, 20 Zukor Road, New City Admission: $5/person; children under 7 are free (due to COVID-19 conditions, admission is limited, and prepaid tickets are required). Purchase tickets here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4681990 Gallery 1: INSIDE OUT: Women, Fashion & The Fight for the Vote The struggle for suffrage affected American women’s lives both before and after they won the vote. In this special Centennial Exhibition, we mine the Historical Society of Rockland County’s collections to address questions about how the fight for women’s suffrage changed fashion, and how women’s fashion—and lives—changed in response to suffrage. Fashion served women as social currency for centuries and has been used to oppress as much as to express. By 1920, however, women were using fashion to proclaim their freedom and political independence. What may have been the most significant evolution in American women’s fashion happened alongside the ratification of the 19th Amendment as the New Woman proudly took her place in American society, dressed to the nines. Gallery 2: ROCKLAND VOICES featuring Mariel Farlow — Being of Light Our semi-permanent exhibition illustrating Rockland County's rich history has reopened for a new season!  Through highlights from the HSRC's permanent collection, visitors will learn about several elements that make up Rockland’s history. The core exhibition explores the Lenape, the Dutch, Treason of the Revolution, Slavery, and Nyack Turnpike.  New for 2020-2021 MARIEL FARLOW — BEING OF LIGHT This year marks the 40th anniversary of the installation of one of the most controversial public sculptures in Rockland.In the hot summer of 1980, Mariel Farlow set out to install a monumental sculpture on the grounds of the Rockland County Courthouse in New City. The effort was the culmination of months of preparation, proposals, designs, fabrication, creativity, hard work, and a bit of serendipity. Over the past four decades, however, her 20-foot, 3,000-pound sculpture, Being of Light (originally titled Man of Light), has generated more controversy than any other piece of public art in Rockland County’s history -- to the detriment of its creator’s original intent.  This special exhibit explores the serendipity, controversy, and philosophy behind Being of Light, which still stands in front of the Rockland County Courthouse, exactly where it was placed 40 years ago. It also renews the call for Farlow's artist’s statement and poem to be mounted on the base of the sculpture, as she had planned in 1980, so viewers can reflect on its meaning and, once and for all, we can let the controversy end. The HSRC's gallery exhibitions run from August 19, 2020, through 2021. They will be open to the public as COVID-19 conditions permit. In the fall of 2020, admission is by advance reservation only, Wednesdays-Fridays between 1 and 4 pm.

Mahwah Museum: "Revealed: Women's Fight for the Right to Vote" Exhibition
Mar 6
The Historical Society of Rockland County
Mahwah Museum, 201 Franklin Turnpike, Mahwah, NJ 07430, USA

Saturday, March 6 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

The Historical Society of Rockland County

2020 is the centennial year for the passage of the 19th Amendment winning the right to vote for women. The Mahwah Museum’s newest exhibit, “Revealed:  Women’s Fight for the Right to Vote,” is a revealing look at the final decade’s toughest battles undertaken by women, several  from New Jersey and New York, to win this right. Suffragists, including New Jersey’s Alice Paul who pushed the boundaries of political and cultural courage, persisted despite arrests, prison terms, hunger strikes and forced-feedings in order to reach their goal. They challenged presidents and statesmen in order to achieve the passage of the 19th Amendment. Even the final fight for the states’ ratification of the amendment, taking place in Tennessee, was battling back-handed deals of bribery, extortion, free flowing booze, and worst of all, women opposed to suffrage – the southern Anti’s.  See this new exhibit for the real story of how the vote was won. This exhibition runs through June 2021. The Mahwah Museum is open Saturdays, 1-4 pm.  Admission is free for Museum members and children, and $5 for non-members.  New Jersey state guidelines will be followed; masks and temperature checks required for entry; social distancing will be followed.

Eva Zeisel: A Virtual Chat (via Zoom)with Jean RichardsThis lecture is part of RoCA’s new series: The Luminary Artists of Rockland.Thursday, March 11 at 7:00pm (a Q & A will follow the presentation)Tickets: $10Self-declared "maker of useful things" Eva Zeisel was a Hungarian-born American industrial designer known for her work with ceramics, primarily from the period after she emigrated to the United States. Her forms are often abstractions of the natural world and human relationships, unusual and inviting takes on what we take for granted. In the middle years of the 20th century, Zeisel’s works could be found on the tabletops of many homes. Her designs are not only prized by collectors, but continue to be sold today. What once was merely mundane and blandly functional suddenly had a magic beyond mere purpose.This lecture, packed with examples of Zeisel’s works and details both personal and professional, presents her to new and established devotees. Hosted by Jean Richards, actress, Eva Zeisel expert—as well as her daughter and executor of her estate—this lecture brings scholarly insight into Eva Zeisel’s life and work: a woman who survived imprisonment in the revolutionary tumult of the Soviet-era, who journeyed to the United States and concocted legendary designs that redefined housewares, forever impacting American arts and culture during the post-war years—who was also a wife and a mother.Zeisel’s acclaim is worldwide. Her work is in the permanent collections of such museums as the Met, MoMA, and the British Museum. She has also received the two highest civilian awards from the Hungarian government, as well as honorifics from numerous art and design schools from the world over. Eva Zeisel’s fame and influence will likely continue for years to come. This lecture makes the case for her as a titan of design.Jean Richards is an actress and author of several children’s books. She appeared in the original Broadway productions of Fiddler on the Roof and The Rothschilds, and in many off- and off-off Broadway productions. Throughout her career she specialized in a variety of voice-overs: from medical demos to children’s stories.

What may have been the most significant evolution in American women’s fashion happened alongside the ratification of the 19th Amendment as the New Woman proudly took her place in American society, dressed to the nines. Gallery 2: ROCKLAND VOICES featuring Mariel Farlow — Being of Light Our semi-permanent exhibition illustrating Rockland County's rich history has reopened for a new season!  Through highlights from the HSRC's permanent collection, visitors will learn about several elements that make up Rockland’s history. The core exhibition explores the Lenape, the Dutch, Treason of the Revolution, Slavery, and Nyack Turnpike.  New for 2020-2021 MARIEL FARLOW — BEING OF LIGHT This year marks the 40th anniversary of the installation of one of the most controversial public sculptures in Rockland.In the hot summer of 1980, Mariel Farlow set out to install a monumental sculpture on the grounds of the Rockland County Courthouse in New City. The effort was the culmination of months of preparation, proposals, designs, fabrication, creativity, hard work, and a bit of serendipity. Over the past four decades, however, her 20-foot, 3,000-pound sculpture, Being of Light (originally titled Man of Light), has generated more controversy than any other piece of public art in Rockland County’s history -- to the detriment of its creator’s original intent.  This special exhibit explores the serendipity, controversy, and philosophy behind Being of Light, which still stands in front of the Rockland County Courthouse, exactly where it was placed 40 years ago. It also renews the call for Farlow's artist’s statement and poem to be mounted on the base of the sculpture, as she had planned in 1980, so viewers can reflect on its meaning and, once and for all, we can let the controversy end. The HSRC's gallery exhibitions run from August 19, 2020, through 2021. They will be open to the public as COVID-19 conditions permit. In the fall of 2020, admission is by advance reservation only, Wednesdays-Fridays between 1 and 4 pm.

Mahwah Museum: "Revealed: Women's Fight for the Right to Vote" Exhibition
Mar 13
The Historical Society of Rockland County
Mahwah Museum, 201 Franklin Turnpike, Mahwah, NJ 07430, USA

Saturday, March 13 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

The Historical Society of Rockland County

2020 is the centennial year for the passage of the 19th Amendment winning the right to vote for women. The Mahwah Museum’s newest exhibit, “Revealed:  Women’s Fight for the Right to Vote,” is a revealing look at the final decade’s toughest battles undertaken by women, several  from New Jersey and New York, to win this right. Suffragists, including New Jersey’s Alice Paul who pushed the boundaries of political and cultural courage, persisted despite arrests, prison terms, hunger strikes and forced-feedings in order to reach their goal. They challenged presidents and statesmen in order to achieve the passage of the 19th Amendment. Even the final fight for the states’ ratification of the amendment, taking place in Tennessee, was battling back-handed deals of bribery, extortion, free flowing booze, and worst of all, women opposed to suffrage – the southern Anti’s.  See this new exhibit for the real story of how the vote was won. This exhibition runs through June 2021. The Mahwah Museum is open Saturdays, 1-4 pm.  Admission is free for Museum members and children, and $5 for non-members.  New Jersey state guidelines will be followed; masks and temperature checks required for entry; social distancing will be followed.

Virtual Book Club with Arlene: "Gateway To The Moon" by Mary Morris

Nanuet Public Library

Thursday, March 18 from 10:30 am to 11:30 am

Nanuet Public Library

Join Arlene on Zoom to discuss Gateway to the Moon by Mary Morris.  In 1492, two history-altering events occurred: the Jews and Muslims of Spain were expelled, and Columbus set sail for the New World. Many Spanish Jews chose not to flee and instead became Christian in name only, maintaining their religious traditions in secret. Among them was Luis de Torres, who accompanied Columbus as an interpreter. Over the centuries, de Torres’ descendants traveled across North America, finally settling in the hills of New Mexico. Now, some five hundred years later, it is in these same hills that Miguel Torres, a young amateur astronomer, finds himself trying to understand the mystery that surrounds him and the town he grew up in: Entrada de la Luna, or Gateway to the Moon. Paper copies are available at the Reference Desk.  Call (845) 623-4281 ext. 2 to schedule an appointment for curbside pickup.  Ebook copies are available on OverDrive / Libby, and the audiobook is available on Hoopla.  Snack packs are also available to pick up after registering.

HSRC: Suffrage Centennial Exhibitions

Thursday, March 25 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

The Historical Society of Rockland County

The Historical Society of Rockland County Is Reopening to the Public with New Exhibitions When: August 19, 2020, through 2021 Where: HSRC History Center, 20 Zukor Road, New City Admission: $5/person; children under 7 are free (due to COVID-19 conditions, admission is limited, and prepaid tickets are required). Purchase tickets here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4681990 Gallery 1: INSIDE OUT: Women, Fashion & The Fight for the Vote The struggle for suffrage affected American women’s lives both before and after they won the vote. In this special Centennial Exhibition, we mine the Historical Society of Rockland County’s collections to address questions about how the fight for women’s suffrage changed fashion, and how women’s fashion—and lives—changed in response to suffrage. Fashion served women as social currency for centuries and has been used to oppress as much as to express. By 1920, however, women were using fashion to proclaim their freedom and political independence. What may have been the most significant evolution in American women’s fashion happened alongside the ratification of the 19th Amendment as the New Woman proudly took her place in American society, dressed to the nines. Gallery 2: ROCKLAND VOICES featuring Mariel Farlow — Being of Light Our semi-permanent exhibition illustrating Rockland County's rich history has reopened for a new season!  Through highlights from the HSRC's permanent collection, visitors will learn about several elements that make up Rockland’s history. The core exhibition explores the Lenape, the Dutch, Treason of the Revolution, Slavery, and Nyack Turnpike.  New for 2020-2021 MARIEL FARLOW — BEING OF LIGHT This year marks the 40th anniversary of the installation of one of the most controversial public sculptures in Rockland.In the hot summer of 1980, Mariel Farlow set out to install a monumental sculpture on the grounds of the Rockland County Courthouse in New City. The effort was the culmination of months of preparation, proposals, designs, fabrication, creativity, hard work, and a bit of serendipity. Over the past four decades, however, her 20-foot, 3,000-pound sculpture, Being of Light (originally titled Man of Light), has generated more controversy than any other piece of public art in Rockland County’s history -- to the detriment of its creator’s original intent.  This special exhibit explores the serendipity, controversy, and philosophy behind Being of Light, which still stands in front of the Rockland County Courthouse, exactly where it was placed 40 years ago. It also renews the call for Farlow's artist’s statement and poem to be mounted on the base of the sculpture, as she had planned in 1980, so viewers can reflect on its meaning and, once and for all, we can let the controversy end. The HSRC's gallery exhibitions run from August 19, 2020, through 2021. They will be open to the public as COVID-19 conditions permit. In the fall of 2020, admission is by advance reservation only, Wednesdays-Fridays between 1 and 4 pm.

Made in Jersey: Kiran Rajagopalan

Virtual

Thursday, March 25 from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm

Berrie Center for Performing and Visual Arts

Made in Jersey will feature a series of New Jersey based performing artists sharing new works-in-progress. After each broadcast, audiences will be able to join the artist in a live chat where they can askquestions. Vaiśravaṇa, commonly known as Kubera, is the Buddhist, Jain, and Hindu deity of wealth in the form of natural resources, currency, and commerce. In some depictions, he is the pot-bellied, self-serving, dark-skinned ruler of the Yakshas – an indigenous tribe of magical healers and shamans coveted for their knowledge of Earth’s secrets but feared by “respectable” society. In others, he is the radiant, noble, golden-skinned guardian of the north and official treasurer to the gods. His shapeshifting in religious art and literature is reflective of South Asian society’s framing of good and evil around wealth, caste, and complexion. His endurance in collective consciousness symbolizes mankind’s relentless pursuit of wealth in an era dominated by consumerism and driven by instant gratification. These themes will be explored in three acts, each of which is dedicated to a specific South Asian classical dance style, geographic region, and time period. This solo work by Kiran Rajagopalan has been commissioned by Prakriti Dance and will premiere in full at their “Festival of Solos” on October 20, 2019. The first act, performed in the Kandyan dance

Mahwah Museum: "Revealed: Women's Fight for the Right to Vote" Exhibition
Mar 27
The Historical Society of Rockland County
Mahwah Museum, 201 Franklin Turnpike, Mahwah, NJ 07430, USA

Saturday, March 27 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

The Historical Society of Rockland County

2020 is the centennial year for the passage of the 19th Amendment winning the right to vote for women. The Mahwah Museum’s newest exhibit, “Revealed:  Women’s Fight for the Right to Vote,” is a revealing look at the final decade’s toughest battles undertaken by women, several  from New Jersey and New York, to win this right. Suffragists, including New Jersey’s Alice Paul who pushed the boundaries of political and cultural courage, persisted despite arrests, prison terms, hunger strikes and forced-feedings in order to reach their goal. They challenged presidents and statesmen in order to achieve the passage of the 19th Amendment. Even the final fight for the states’ ratification of the amendment, taking place in Tennessee, was battling back-handed deals of bribery, extortion, free flowing booze, and worst of all, women opposed to suffrage – the southern Anti’s.  See this new exhibit for the real story of how the vote was won. This exhibition runs through June 2021. The Mahwah Museum is open Saturdays, 1-4 pm.  Admission is free for Museum members and children, and $5 for non-members.  New Jersey state guidelines will be followed; masks and temperature checks required for entry; social distancing will be followed.
