    Andover Historical Launches New Mobile VIRTUAL ANDOVER App

    Monday Feb 12
    (All Day)

    Today Andover Historical launched Virtual Andover, a new app that invites people to explore Andover’s many stories where they happened. The mobile guide to Andover’s stories is free and available for iPhone and Android devices through andoverhistorical.org/app. “Virtual Andover is a pocket-sized, personal guide to the town’s history and stories, accessible anywhere and everywhere,” said Executive Director Elaine Clements, “It’s fun and interactive and full of surprising stories. It connects people to Andover through its stories…where they happened. Through Virtual Andover, you can explore the fun, off-beat, and unexpected stories that happened all around town.” Downtown Main Street Andover and Off Main Street – East are the first tours on the app, with more under development. “As we finish a street or area, we upload the stories right to the app,” Clements said, “and add fun features like videos. Look for them on the Elm Street tour!” Future tours include Essex Street, Dundee Park, and the Historic Mill District. Events, maps, memberships, and more are also features of the app. The app is designed to be used as a walking tour, complete with walking directions and maps that pinpoint where stories took place. “By launching Virtual Andover with Main Street stories, we’re hoping to encourage people to visit, explore, and linger in beautiful downtown Andover,” Clements said, “You can sit in a restaurant and explore stories that happened in that location years ago.” The app was designed in collaboration with Cuseum, a Boston-based technology design firm that focuses on creating mobile apps and other digital experiences for cultural institutions. The first year of Virtual Andover was funded with thanks to a local donor and the Rotary Club of Andover. The app includes opportunities to donate and become a member, as well as business sponsorship opportunities. About the Andover Historical Society Andover Historical inspires and deepens community engagement by connecting people to each other and their community through Andover’s stories – preserving the past, educating for the future, connecting to our community. For more information, visit andoverhistorical.org.

    Actor John Koopman III will perform his one-man show, "President George Washington Speaks on the Constitution." 

    About George: George Washington had a unique perspective on the founding of our nation: the father of our country, soldier statesman, first in war, first in peace. He'll discuss: What caused the colonists to found a new country? Why the Revolution drove Washington to the Constitutional Convention? What he thought of the Constitution? How was the new nation faced with many tests, including the Shay's and the Whiskey Rebellion? How was war averted with France?

    About John: Since 2006, John Koopman III has had the honor of portraying General George Washington at many National Parks, State Parks and other historic sites all along the East Coast. He has appeared in more than 20 documentaries, films and TV shows -- often as George Washington or a Washington expert -- including the History Channel's "Secrets of the Founding Fathers;" the Travel Channel's "Untold Secrets;" and "America's First D-Day: Washington Crossing" from Continential Film Alliance.  Koopman is also the author of the historical novel, George Washington At War -- 1776.

    Andover Historical Launches New Mobile VIRTUAL ANDOVER App

    Tuesday Feb 13
    (All Day)

    Today Andover Historical launched Virtual Andover, a new app that invites people to explore Andover’s many stories where they happened. The mobile guide to Andover’s stories is free and available for iPhone and Android devices through andoverhistorical.org/app. “Virtual Andover is a pocket-sized, personal guide to the town’s history and stories, accessible anywhere and everywhere,” said Executive Director Elaine Clements, “It’s fun and interactive and full of surprising stories. It connects people to Andover through its stories…where they happened. Through Virtual Andover, you can explore the fun, off-beat, and unexpected stories that happened all around town.” Downtown Main Street Andover and Off Main Street – East are the first tours on the app, with more under development. “As we finish a street or area, we upload the stories right to the app,” Clements said, “and add fun features like videos. Look for them on the Elm Street tour!” Future tours include Essex Street, Dundee Park, and the Historic Mill District. Events, maps, memberships, and more are also features of the app. The app is designed to be used as a walking tour, complete with walking directions and maps that pinpoint where stories took place. “By launching Virtual Andover with Main Street stories, we’re hoping to encourage people to visit, explore, and linger in beautiful downtown Andover,” Clements said, “You can sit in a restaurant and explore stories that happened in that location years ago.” The app was designed in collaboration with Cuseum, a Boston-based technology design firm that focuses on creating mobile apps and other digital experiences for cultural institutions. The first year of Virtual Andover was funded with thanks to a local donor and the Rotary Club of Andover. The app includes opportunities to donate and become a member, as well as business sponsorship opportunities. About the Andover Historical Society Andover Historical inspires and deepens community engagement by connecting people to each other and their community through Andover’s stories – preserving the past, educating for the future, connecting to our community.

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light

    Tuesday Feb 13
    10 pm - 5 am

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light traces the evolution of the artist’s groundbreaking style and his significant yet under-recognized contributions to abstraction and mid-century American modernism. With 70 paintings spanning the 1920s through 1970, Threading Light surveys the breadth of Tobey’s oeuvre and reveals the extraordinarily nuanced yet radical beauty of his work. The first comprehensive retrospective of Tobey’s work in two decades, and the first in the United States in four decades, Threading Light provides a thoughtful re-appraisal of Tobey’s work.

    One of the foremost American artists to emerge from the 1940s, a decade that saw the rise of abstract expressionism, Mark Tobey (1890–1976) is recognized as a vanguard figure whose “white-writing” anticipated the formal innovations of New York School artists such as Jackson Pollock. When Tobey first displayed his paintings composed of intricate, pale webs of delicate lines in New York in 1944, he generated much interest with his daring “all-over” compositions that eliminated narrative and three-dimensional space but retained references to the human figure.

    His unique calligraphic renderings largely invoke the city and are the outcome of a lyrical integration of both Eastern and Western visual histories that range from Chinese scroll painting to European cubism. This unique form of abstraction was the synthesis of the artist’s experiences living in Seattle and New York, his extensive trips to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kyoto, and Europe, and his conversion to the Bahá'í faith. Tobey stated, his work was not bound by a geography or a country but aimed for a “higher state of consciousness.” It bridges the international dimensions of midcentury modernism, a connection that has been previously unexplored in the discourse on postwar art.

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light is organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts and is guest curated by Debra Bricker Balken. The exhibition will open at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, Italy, on May 6 and run through September 10, 2017, before opening at the Addison.

    The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated, 208-page scholarly catalogue, published by Skira Rizzoli in English and Italian, that documents many of Tobey’s most accomplished works and includes a comprehensive examination of Tobey and his cultural context by Balken, whose thorough and original research addresses the prescience of Tobey’s style and his unique place in American art.

    November 4, 2017 - March 11, 2018

    Open Tueesday through Saturday, 10am - 5pm and Sunday 1-5 pm. Closed Mondays, national holidays, and December 24.

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light

    Wednesday Feb 14
    10 pm - 5 am

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light traces the evolution of the artist’s groundbreaking style and his significant yet under-recognized contributions to abstraction and mid-century American modernism. With 70 paintings spanning the 1920s through 1970, Threading Light surveys the breadth of Tobey’s oeuvre and reveals the extraordinarily nuanced yet radical beauty of his work. The first comprehensive retrospective of Tobey’s work in two decades, and the first in the United States in four decades, Threading Light provides a thoughtful re-appraisal of Tobey’s work.

    One of the foremost American artists to emerge from the 1940s, a decade that saw the rise of abstract expressionism, Mark Tobey (1890–1976) is recognized as a vanguard figure whose “white-writing” anticipated the formal innovations of New York School artists such as Jackson Pollock. When Tobey first displayed his paintings composed of intricate, pale webs of delicate lines in New York in 1944, he generated much interest with his daring “all-over” compositions that eliminated narrative and three-dimensional space but retained references to the human figure.

    His unique calligraphic renderings largely invoke the city and are the outcome of a lyrical integration of both Eastern and Western visual histories that range from Chinese scroll painting to European cubism. This unique form of abstraction was the synthesis of the artist’s experiences living in Seattle and New York, his extensive trips to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kyoto, and Europe, and his conversion to the Bahá'í faith. Tobey stated, his work was not bound by a geography or a country but aimed for a “higher state of consciousness.” It bridges the international dimensions of midcentury modernism, a connection that has been previously unexplored in the discourse on postwar art.

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light is organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts and is guest curated by Debra Bricker Balken. The exhibition will open at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, Italy, on May 6 and run through September 10, 2017, before opening at the Addison.

    The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated, 208-page scholarly catalogue, published by Skira Rizzoli in English and Italian, that documents many of Tobey’s most accomplished works and includes a comprehensive examination of Tobey and his cultural context by Balken, whose thorough and original research addresses the prescience of Tobey’s style and his unique place in American art.

    November 4, 2017 - March 11, 2018

    Andover Historical Launches New Mobile VIRTUAL ANDOVER App

    Thursday Feb 15
    (All Day)

    Today Andover Historical launched Virtual Andover, a new app that invites people to explore Andover’s many stories where they happened. The mobile guide to Andover’s stories is free and available for iPhone and Android devices through andoverhistorical.org/app. “Virtual Andover is a pocket-sized, personal guide to the town’s history and stories, accessible anywhere and everywhere,” said Executive Director Elaine Clements, “It’s fun and interactive and full of surprising stories. It connects people to Andover through its stories…where they happened. Through Virtual Andover, you can explore the fun, off-beat, and unexpected stories that happened all around town.” Downtown Main Street Andover and Off Main Street – East are the first tours on the app, with more under development. “As we finish a street or area, we upload the stories right to the app,” Clements said, “and add fun features like videos. Look for them on the Elm Street tour!” Future tours include Essex Street, Dundee Park, and the Historic Mill District. Events, maps, memberships, and more are also features of the app. The app is designed to be used as a walking tour, complete with walking directions and maps that pinpoint where stories took place. “By launching Virtual Andover with Main Street stories, we’re hoping to encourage people to visit, explore, and linger in beautiful downtown Andover,” Clements said, “You can sit in a restaurant and explore stories that happened in that location years ago.” The app was designed in collaboration with Cuseum, a Boston-based technology design firm that focuses on creating mobile apps and other digital experiences for cultural institutions. The first year of Virtual Andover was funded with thanks to a local donor and the Rotary Club of Andover. The app includes opportunities to donate and become a member, as well as business sponsorship opportunities. About the Andover Historical Society Andover Historical inspires and deepens community engagement by connecting people to each other and their community through Andover’s stories – preserving the past, educating for the future, connecting to our community.

    AUTHOR VISIT: 'Boston Ballerina' with Lauren Young

    Thursday Feb 15
    7 pm - 8 pm

    Tewksbury Public Library

    Author Laura Young will discuss her new book, "Boston Ballerina: A Dancer, A Company, An Era." 

    About The Book: Boston Ballerina is both a memoir of Laura Young's personal journey and a fascinating account of Boston Ballet’s rise from a regional troupe to the internationally recognized company that it is today. It is interspersed with ruminations on the history of ballet, stories from the company’s Balanchine-influenced early years under founder E. Virginia Williams, and recollections from noteworthy tours, including those featuring the legendary Rudolf Nureyev, with whom Young was frequently paired.

    About The Author: Laura Young was a company dancer in the Boston Ballet since its inception in 1965 and continues with the organization as a Boston Ballet School faculty member. As a charter member of Boston Ballet and its predecessor, New England Civic Ballet, Laura Young has been affiliated with the company longer than any other dancer in its history.

    Doors to open by 6:45pm.  Q&A and book signing to follow the event for those interested. Limited to 50 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. This program is a part of the library's '100 Authors In 2018' initiative to host 100 local authors in 1 year.

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light

    Thursday Feb 15
    10 pm - 5 am

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light traces the evolution of the artist’s groundbreaking style and his significant yet under-recognized contributions to abstraction and mid-century American modernism. With 70 paintings spanning the 1920s through 1970, Threading Light surveys the breadth of Tobey’s oeuvre and reveals the extraordinarily nuanced yet radical beauty of his work. The first comprehensive retrospective of Tobey’s work in two decades, and the first in the United States in four decades, Threading Light provides a thoughtful re-appraisal of Tobey’s work.

    One of the foremost American artists to emerge from the 1940s, a decade that saw the rise of abstract expressionism, Mark Tobey (1890–1976) is recognized as a vanguard figure whose “white-writing” anticipated the formal innovations of New York School artists such as Jackson Pollock. When Tobey first displayed his paintings composed of intricate, pale webs of delicate lines in New York in 1944, he generated much interest with his daring “all-over” compositions that eliminated narrative and three-dimensional space but retained references to the human figure.

    His unique calligraphic renderings largely invoke the city and are the outcome of a lyrical integration of both Eastern and Western visual histories that range from Chinese scroll painting to European cubism. This unique form of abstraction was the synthesis of the artist’s experiences living in Seattle and New York, his extensive trips to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kyoto, and Europe, and his conversion to the Bahá'í faith. Tobey stated, his work was not bound by a geography or a country but aimed for a “higher state of consciousness.” It bridges the international dimensions of midcentury modernism, a connection that has been previously unexplored in the discourse on postwar art.

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light is organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts and is guest curated by Debra Bricker Balken. The exhibition will open at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, Italy, on May 6 and run through September 10, 2017, before opening at the Addison.

    The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated, 208-page scholarly catalogue, published by Skira Rizzoli in English and Italian, that documents many of Tobey’s most accomplished works and includes a comprehensive examination of Tobey and his cultural context by Balken, whose thorough and original research addresses the prescience of Tobey’s style and his unique place in American art.

    November 4, 2017 - March 11, 2018

    Andover Historical Launches New Mobile VIRTUAL ANDOVER App

    Friday Feb 16
    (All Day)

    Today Andover Historical launched Virtual Andover, a new app that invites people to explore Andover’s many stories where they happened. The mobile guide to Andover’s stories is free and available for iPhone and Android devices through andoverhistorical.org/app. “Virtual Andover is a pocket-sized, personal guide to the town’s history and stories, accessible anywhere and everywhere,” said Executive Director Elaine Clements, “It’s fun and interactive and full of surprising stories. It connects people to Andover through its stories…where they happened. Through Virtual Andover, you can explore the fun, off-beat, and unexpected stories that happened all around town.” Downtown Main Street Andover and Off Main Street – East are the first tours on the app, with more under development. “As we finish a street or area, we upload the stories right to the app,” Clements said, “and add fun features like videos. Look for them on the Elm Street tour!” Future tours include Essex Street, Dundee Park, and the Historic Mill District. Events, maps, memberships, and more are also features of the app. The app is designed to be used as a walking tour, complete with walking directions and maps that pinpoint where stories took place. “By launching Virtual Andover with Main Street stories, we’re hoping to encourage people to visit, explore, and linger in beautiful downtown Andover,” Clements said, “You can sit in a restaurant and explore stories that happened in that location years ago.” The app was designed in collaboration with Cuseum, a Boston-based technology design firm that focuses on creating mobile apps and other digital experiences for cultural institutions. The first year of Virtual Andover was funded with thanks to a local donor and the Rotary Club of Andover. The app includes opportunities to donate and become a member, as well as business sponsorship opportunities. About the Andover Historical Society Andover Historical inspires and deepens community engagement by connecting people to each other and their community through Andover’s stories – preserving the past, educating for the future, connecting to our community.

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light

    Saturday Feb 17
    10 pm - 5 am

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light traces the evolution of the artist’s groundbreaking style and his significant yet under-recognized contributions to abstraction and mid-century American modernism. With 70 paintings spanning the 1920s through 1970, Threading Light surveys the breadth of Tobey’s oeuvre and reveals the extraordinarily nuanced yet radical beauty of his work. The first comprehensive retrospective of Tobey’s work in two decades, and the first in the United States in four decades, Threading Light provides a thoughtful re-appraisal of Tobey’s work.

    One of the foremost American artists to emerge from the 1940s, a decade that saw the rise of abstract expressionism, Mark Tobey (1890–1976) is recognized as a vanguard figure whose “white-writing” anticipated the formal innovations of New York School artists such as Jackson Pollock. When Tobey first displayed his paintings composed of intricate, pale webs of delicate lines in New York in 1944, he generated much interest with his daring “all-over” compositions that eliminated narrative and three-dimensional space but retained references to the human figure.

    His unique calligraphic renderings largely invoke the city and are the outcome of a lyrical integration of both Eastern and Western visual histories that range from Chinese scroll painting to European cubism. This unique form of abstraction was the synthesis of the artist’s experiences living in Seattle and New York, his extensive trips to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kyoto, and Europe, and his conversion to the Bahá'í faith. Tobey stated, his work was not bound by a geography or a country but aimed for a “higher state of consciousness.” It bridges the international dimensions of midcentury modernism, a connection that has been previously unexplored in the discourse on postwar art.

    Mark Tobey: Threading Light is organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts and is guest curated by Debra Bricker Balken. The exhibition will open at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, Italy, on May 6 and run through September 10, 2017, before opening at the Addison.

    The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated, 208-page scholarly catalogue, published by Skira Rizzoli in English and Italian, that documents many of Tobey’s most accomplished works and includes a comprehensive examination of Tobey and his cultural context by Balken, whose thorough and original research addresses the prescience of Tobey’s style and his unique place in American art.

    Andover Historical Launches New Mobile VIRTUAL ANDOVER App

    Sunday Feb 18
    (All Day)

    Today Andover Historical launched Virtual Andover, a new app that invites people to explore Andover’s many stories where they happened. The mobile guide to Andover’s stories is free and available for iPhone and Android devices through andoverhistorical.org/app. “Virtual Andover is a pocket-sized, personal guide to the town’s history and stories, accessible anywhere and everywhere,” said Executive Director Elaine Clements, “It’s fun and interactive and full of surprising stories. It connects people to Andover through its stories…where they happened. Through Virtual Andover, you can explore the fun, off-beat, and unexpected stories that happened all around town.” Downtown Main Street Andover and Off Main Street – East are the first tours on the app, with more under development. “As we finish a street or area, we upload the stories right to the app,” Clements said, “and add fun features like videos. Look for them on the Elm Street tour!” Future tours include Essex Street, Dundee Park, and the Historic Mill District. Events, maps, memberships, and more are also features of the app. The app is designed to be used as a walking tour, complete with walking directions and maps that pinpoint where stories took place. “By launching Virtual Andover with Main Street stories, we’re hoping to encourage people to visit, explore, and linger in beautiful downtown Andover,” Clements said, “You can sit in a restaurant and explore stories that happened in that location years ago.” The app was designed in collaboration with Cuseum, a Boston-based technology design firm that focuses on creating mobile apps and other digital experiences for cultural institutions. The first year of Virtual Andover was funded with thanks to a local donor and the Rotary Club of Andover. The app includes opportunities to donate and become a member, as well as business sponsorship opportunities. About the Andover Historical Society Andover Historical inspires and deepens community engagement by connecting people to each other and their community through Andover’s stories – preserving the past, educating for the future, connecting to our community.
