    Visiting Exhibit: January 12, 2019 – April 28, 2019

    Balls, ramps, jumps, loops--and physics fun! Race golf balls along winding, sloping, and looping tracks and explore how gravity, friction, speed, and acceleration affect the velocity and trajectory of moving objects. Velocity Engineering Lab will be located in the Middlesex Savings Bank Community Gallery on the Discovery Museum's first floor from January 12 through April 28th.

    Five distinct activity areas—a Roller Coaster and Serpentine, Jump Track, Loop Track, Half-Pipe, and Dish—demonstrate the speed, trajectory, velocity, and momentum of moving objects. Using golf balls, kids and their adults can create experiments and compare results with data visualization software that captures multiple test runs; animated definitions of key physics principles correspond to videos of real-world examples.

    Love balls and ramps? Come experience Velocity!

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy

    The Addison’s rich collections provide a great many points of entry for understanding the history and development of American art from the 18th century to the present. The almost limitless opportunities these afford for thematic and chronological presentations offering new interpretations are enhanced through additions to the holdings and thoughtful combinations of works. This fall, in four first-floor galleries, four curators have explored a theme, style, or artistic idiom represented in depth across the many media in the collection. This selection of works examines the representation of women, the investigation of abstraction at its introduction and, later, at mid-century, and the use of technology. 

    In each room, the groupings include intriguing works of sculpture—an opportunity to reflect upon the precedents for and successors to the figural work of Paul Manship, whose important works—both hallowed and innovative subjects—may be found on the second floor.

    Museum hours:

    Tuesday–Saturday: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    In and Out of Place

    Tuesday Apr 23
    10 am - 5 pm

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy
    3 Chapel Ave, Andover, MA 01810, USA

    What is place? Is it a set of discrete coordinates fixed in space or something less concrete, something harder to define? Drawn from the Addison’s rich holdings of American art from the colonial era to the present, this exhibition endeavors to investigate the nuanced and varied physical and human characteristics that set place apart from mere location. Divided into three salient categories: nature, home, and city, the works on view demonstrate the ways in which our individual, subjective notions of place are fundamentally shaped by visual imagery. A cozy hearth and a warm fire, throngs of people on a congested sidewalk, lofty mountain peaks reflected in crystal clear water—themes repeated across centuries of paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, watercolors, and sculptures—conjure images both vivid and visceral. While perhaps representative of a specific home, city, or site in nature, the signifiers of place on view in these galleries transcend the particular to appeal to the universal.

    GALLERY HOURS

    Tuesday–Saturday 10–5, Sunday 1–5; open 10–9 on Wednesdays while Phillips Academy is in session. Closed Mondays, national holidays, December 24, and the month of August.

    John Goodman: not recent color

    Tuesday Apr 23
    10 am - 5 pm

    Addison Gallery of American Art

    Comprised of brilliant color photographs, the majority of which have never before been exhibited, John Goodman: not recent color examines the American cultural landscape through the coming of age of a young artist in the 1970s and 1980s. 

    Made from recently rediscovered Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides, these photographs transport viewers to another time with their richly saturated colors and cinematic views. Piercing yet tender images shot in diners, bowling alleys, and darkened theaters, outside phone booths and gas stations, and on city streets and sidewalks conjure moments in individual lives and social interactions that together tell a story about the slowly changing social fabric of Goodman’s studio neighborhood in Boston––and the country at large. 

    Predating the work for which Goodman is best known—poignant and gritty photographs capturing subjects such as Boston’s famed Combat Zone, backstage at the Boston Ballet, the streets of Havana, and a Times Square boxing gym—these early works announce a lifelong interest in recording fleeting moments, as well as the more abstract and enduring essence of places and people.

    Harlem: In Situ

    Tuesday Apr 23
    10 pm - 5 am

    Addison Gallery of American Art

    Harlem is as much a place as a myth. Throughout the 20th century, this northern Manhattan neighborhood has been written into history as many things; however, in this context, Harlem is ultimately and unceasingly, a black creative mecca, a place whose rich social and cultural fabric has been woven out of the abundance of people of African descent worldwide who have come together in its streets, salons, parks, restaurants, and clubs, influencing generations of artists, musicians, and writers. Harlem: In Situ explores the depth and complexity of this renowned neighborhood, highlighting the work of some of the most important visual artists working from the late 1920s through today. Initially inspired by the Addison’s trove of Harlem street-photography, which includes significant bodies of work such as Harlem Document (1935) by Aaron Siskind, Harlem Heroes (1930–1960) by Carl van Vechten, Harlem, USA (1975–1979) by Dawoud Bey (a three-time Elson Artist-in-Residence at Phillips Academy), 1920s–1950s (Harlem) by Lucien Aigner, and The Sweet Flypaper of Life (1984) by Roy DeCarava, this show also includes prints from the collection by Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, James Lesesne Wells, and Vincent D. Smith, as well as several key works by nearly a dozen artists, working across time and media, including Charles Als ton, Jordan Casteel, Aaron Douglas, Miatta Kawinzi, Alice Neel, Lorraine O’Grady, and Kehinde Wiley, that will come to the Addison as loans from sister institutions. These artists and their works investigate the legacy and trajectory of Harlem, which encompasses mass migration, opulence, cultural renaissance, depression, demise, empowerment, pride, and gentrification.

    Worlds Apart is a world premiere musical full of romance and magic that tells the story of a brokenhearted songwriter whose life is uprooted by two ghosts who have lost their way.

    It takes place in a small community theater in Spokane, Washington, where the company’s pride and joy is performing the same campy musical for many years in a row. There is mystery, love, lust, and hopelessness intertwined throughout this wonderfully crafted masterpiece written by Christian Duhamel, last year’s Kleban Prize winner.

    Harlem: In Situ

    Wednesday Apr 24
    10 pm - 5 am

    Addison Gallery of American Art

    Harlem is as much a place as a myth. Throughout the 20th century, this northern Manhattan neighborhood has been written into history as many things; however, in this context, Harlem is ultimately and unceasingly, a black creative mecca, a place whose rich social and cultural fabric has been woven out of the abundance of people of African descent worldwide who have come together in its streets, salons, parks, restaurants, and clubs, influencing generations of artists, musicians, and writers. Harlem: In Situ explores the depth and complexity of this renowned neighborhood, highlighting the work of some of the most important visual artists working from the late 1920s through today. Initially inspired by the Addison’s trove of Harlem street-photography, which includes significant bodies of work such as Harlem Document (1935) by Aaron Siskind, Harlem Heroes (1930–1960) by Carl van Vechten, Harlem, USA (1975–1979) by Dawoud Bey (a three-time Elson Artist-in-Residence at Phillips Academy), 1920s–1950s (Harlem) by Lucien Aigner, and The Sweet Flypaper of Life (1984) by Roy DeCarava, this show also includes prints from the collection by Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, James Lesesne Wells, and Vincent D. Smith, as well as several key works by nearly a dozen artists, working across time and media, including Charles Als ton, Jordan Casteel, Aaron Douglas, Miatta Kawinzi, Alice Neel, Lorraine O’Grady, and Kehinde Wiley, that will come to the Addison as loans from sister institutions. These artists and their works investigate the legacy and trajectory of Harlem, which encompasses mass migration, opulence, cultural renaissance, depression, demise, empowerment, pride, and gentrification.

    Open Tuesday-Saturday 10 am to 5 pm, Sunday 1-5 pm

    Balls, ramps, jumps, loops--and physics fun! Race golf balls along winding, sloping, and looping tracks and explore how gravity, friction, speed, and acceleration affect the velocity and trajectory of moving objects. Velocity Engineering Lab will be located in the Middlesex Savings Bank Community Gallery on the Discovery Museum's first floor from January 12 through April 28th.

    Five distinct activity areas—a Roller Coaster and Serpentine, Jump Track, Loop Track, Half-Pipe, and Dish—demonstrate the speed, trajectory, velocity, and momentum of moving objects. Using golf balls, kids and their adults can create experiments and compare results with data visualization software that captures multiple test runs; animated definitions of key physics principles correspond to videos of real-world examples.

    Love balls and ramps? Come experience Velocity!

    10 am - 5 pm

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy

    The Addison’s rich collections provide a great many points of entry for understanding the history and development of American art from the 18th century to the present. The almost limitless opportunities these afford for thematic and chronological presentations offering new interpretations are enhanced through additions to the holdings and thoughtful combinations of works. This fall, in four first-floor galleries, four curators have explored a theme, style, or artistic idiom represented in depth across the many media in the collection. This selection of works examines the representation of women, the investigation of abstraction at its introduction and, later, at mid-century, and the use of technology. 

    In each room, the groupings include intriguing works of sculpture—an opportunity to reflect upon the precedents for and successors to the figural work of Paul Manship, whose important works—both hallowed and innovative subjects—may be found on the second floor.

    Museum hours:

    Tuesday–Saturday: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
         open Wednesday 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. while school is in session

    In and Out of Place

    Thursday Apr 25
    10 am - 5 pm

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy
    3 Chapel Ave, Andover, MA 01810, USA

    What is place? Is it a set of discrete coordinates fixed in space or something less concrete, something harder to define? Drawn from the Addison’s rich holdings of American art from the colonial era to the present, this exhibition endeavors to investigate the nuanced and varied physical and human characteristics that set place apart from mere location. Divided into three salient categories: nature, home, and city, the works on view demonstrate the ways in which our individual, subjective notions of place are fundamentally shaped by visual imagery. A cozy hearth and a warm fire, throngs of people on a congested sidewalk, lofty mountain peaks reflected in crystal clear water—themes repeated across centuries of paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, watercolors, and sculptures—conjure images both vivid and visceral. While perhaps representative of a specific home, city, or site in nature, the signifiers of place on view in these galleries transcend the particular to appeal to the universal.

    GALLERY HOURS

    Tuesday–Saturday 10–5, Sunday 1–5; open 10–9 on Wednesdays while Phillips Academy is in session. Closed Mondays, national holidays, December 24, and the month of August.

    John Goodman: not recent color

    Thursday Apr 25
    10 am - 5 pm

    Addison Gallery of American Art

    Comprised of brilliant color photographs, the majority of which have never before been exhibited, John Goodman: not recent color examines the American cultural landscape through the coming of age of a young artist in the 1970s and 1980s. 

    Made from recently rediscovered Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides, these photographs transport viewers to another time with their richly saturated colors and cinematic views. Piercing yet tender images shot in diners, bowling alleys, and darkened theaters, outside phone booths and gas stations, and on city streets and sidewalks conjure moments in individual lives and social interactions that together tell a story about the slowly changing social fabric of Goodman’s studio neighborhood in Boston––and the country at large. 

    Predating the work for which Goodman is best known—poignant and gritty photographs capturing subjects such as Boston’s famed Combat Zone, backstage at the Boston Ballet, the streets of Havana, and a Times Square boxing gym—these early works announce a lifelong interest in recording fleeting moments, as well as the more abstract and enduring essence of places and people.

    The Frogs

    Thursday Apr 25
    8 pm - 10 pm

    Boston Conservatory Theater

    Loosely based on the Greek comedy written in 405 B.C. by Aristophanes, The Frogs playfully explores the great challenges of human existence: confronting our fears, understanding life and death, and challenging the distractions that can prevent us from achieving our goals.

    This boisterously hilarious, yet poignant musical follows Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and drama, and his slave, Xanthias, on a journey to Hades to collect renowned playwright George Bernard Shaw so that he may enlighten the easily misled and coerced masses. Along this journey, Dionysus and Xanthias meet Chekhov, Congreve, Ibsen, Brecht, and a chorus of frogs. Shakespeare makes an unexpected appearance, and before long, he and Shaw find themselves in a battle of words. Who will win and have the honor of becoming reincarnated: the Bard or Bernard?

    John Goodman: not recent color

    Friday Apr 26
    10 am - 5 pm

    Addison Gallery of American Art

    Comprised of brilliant color photographs, the majority of which have never before been exhibited, John Goodman: not recent color examines the American cultural landscape through the coming of age of a young artist in the 1970s and 1980s. 

    Made from recently rediscovered Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides, these photographs transport viewers to another time with their richly saturated colors and cinematic views. Piercing yet tender images shot in diners, bowling alleys, and darkened theaters, outside phone booths and gas stations, and on city streets and sidewalks conjure moments in individual lives and social interactions that together tell a story about the slowly changing social fabric of Goodman’s studio neighborhood in Boston––and the country at large. 

    Predating the work for which Goodman is best known—poignant and gritty photographs capturing subjects such as Boston’s famed Combat Zone, backstage at the Boston Ballet, the streets of Havana, and a Times Square boxing gym—these early works announce a lifelong interest in recording fleeting moments, as well as the more abstract and enduring essence of places and people.

    A Word on our (gentle) Poetry Slams...

    Chelmsford's Slam is a gentle Slam. At some Poetry Slams in city bars and on college campuses judges signal their votes "Olympic style" after each reading. Our Slams are less intimidating; voting takes place quietly via a ballot box. Think of it as a Slam customized for the suburbs.

    Our poets are of all ages: Our youngest poet was about 5; our oldest poet spent the evening of her 90th birthday at one of our Slams! The rest fall in between giving us a rich variety of perspectives of the human condition. 

    Audience members vote by filling out ballots with the names of their three most favorite poems or poets (we print up programs listing our poets so you can keep track of who's who).

    The Frogs

    Friday Apr 26
    8 pm - 10 pm

    Boston Conservatory Theater

    Loosely based on the Greek comedy written in 405 B.C. by Aristophanes, The Frogs playfully explores the great challenges of human existence: confronting our fears, understanding life and death, and challenging the distractions that can prevent us from achieving our goals.

    This boisterously hilarious, yet poignant musical follows Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and drama, and his slave, Xanthias, on a journey to Hades to collect renowned playwright George Bernard Shaw so that he may enlighten the easily misled and coerced masses. Along this journey, Dionysus and Xanthias meet Chekhov, Congreve, Ibsen, Brecht, and a chorus of frogs. Shakespeare makes an unexpected appearance, and before long, he and Shaw find themselves in a battle of words. Who will win and have the honor of becoming reincarnated: the Bard or Bernard?

    Harlem: In Situ

    Friday Apr 26
    10 pm - 5 am

    Addison Gallery of American Art

    Harlem is as much a place as a myth. Throughout the 20th century, this northern Manhattan neighborhood has been written into history as many things; however, in this context, Harlem is ultimately and unceasingly, a black creative mecca, a place whose rich social and cultural fabric has been woven out of the abundance of people of African descent worldwide who have come together in its streets, salons, parks, restaurants, and clubs, influencing generations of artists, musicians, and writers. Harlem: In Situ explores the depth and complexity of this renowned neighborhood, highlighting the work of some of the most important visual artists working from the late 1920s through today. Initially inspired by the Addison’s trove of Harlem street-photography, which includes significant bodies of work such as Harlem Document (1935) by Aaron Siskind, Harlem Heroes (1930–1960) by Carl van Vechten, Harlem, USA (1975–1979) by Dawoud Bey (a three-time Elson Artist-in-Residence at Phillips Academy), 1920s–1950s (Harlem) by Lucien Aigner, and The Sweet Flypaper of Life (1984) by Roy DeCarava, this show also includes prints from the collection by Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, James Lesesne Wells, and Vincent D. Smith, as well as several key works by nearly a dozen artists, working across time and media, including Charles Als ton, Jordan Casteel, Aaron Douglas, Miatta Kawinzi, Alice Neel, Lorraine O’Grady, and Kehinde Wiley, that will come to the Addison as loans from sister institutions. These artists and their works investigate the legacy and trajectory of Harlem, which encompasses mass migration, opulence, cultural renaissance, depression, demise, empowerment, pride, and gentrification.

    Balls, ramps, jumps, loops--and physics fun! Race golf balls along winding, sloping, and looping tracks and explore how gravity, friction, speed, and acceleration affect the velocity and trajectory of moving objects. Velocity Engineering Lab will be located in the Middlesex Savings Bank Community Gallery on the Discovery Museum's first floor from January 12 through April 28th.

    Five distinct activity areas—a Roller Coaster and Serpentine, Jump Track, Loop Track, Half-Pipe, and Dish—demonstrate the speed, trajectory, velocity, and momentum of moving objects. Using golf balls, kids and their adults can create experiments and compare results with data visualization software that captures multiple test runs; animated definitions of key physics principles correspond to videos of real-world examples.

    Love balls and ramps? Come experience Velocity!

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy

    The Addison’s rich collections provide a great many points of entry for understanding the history and development of American art from the 18th century to the present. The almost limitless opportunities these afford for thematic and chronological presentations offering new interpretations are enhanced through additions to the holdings and thoughtful combinations of works. This fall, in four first-floor galleries, four curators have explored a theme, style, or artistic idiom represented in depth across the many media in the collection. This selection of works examines the representation of women, the investigation of abstraction at its introduction and, later, at mid-century, and the use of technology. 

    In each room, the groupings include intriguing works of sculpture—an opportunity to reflect upon the precedents for and successors to the figural work of Paul Manship, whose important works—both hallowed and innovative subjects—may be found on the second floor.

    Museum hours:

    Tuesday–Saturday: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    3 Chapel Ave, Andover, MA 01810, USA

    What is place? Is it a set of discrete coordinates fixed in space or something less concrete, something harder to define? Drawn from the Addison’s rich holdings of American art from the colonial era to the present, this exhibition endeavors to investigate the nuanced and varied physical and human characteristics that set place apart from mere location. Divided into three salient categories: nature, home, and city, the works on view demonstrate the ways in which our individual, subjective notions of place are fundamentally shaped by visual imagery. A cozy hearth and a warm fire, throngs of people on a congested sidewalk, lofty mountain peaks reflected in crystal clear water—themes repeated across centuries of paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, watercolors, and sculptures—conjure images both vivid and visceral. While perhaps representative of a specific home, city, or site in nature, the signifiers of place on view in these galleries transcend the particular to appeal to the universal.

    GALLERY HOURS

    Tuesday–Saturday 10–5, Sunday 1–5; open 10–9 on Wednesdays while Phillips Academy is in session. Closed Mondays, national holidays, December 24, and the month of August.

    When Caitlyn Breen enters the tiny Mitchell School in rural Mitchell, Vermont, she is a complete outsider: the seventh grade has just ten other kids, and they've known each other since kindergarten. Her classmates are in for a shock of their own: Paulie Fink--the class clown, oddball, troublemaker, and evil genius--is gone this year. 

    As stories of Paulie's hijinks unfold, his legend builds, until they realize there's only one way to fill the Paulie-sized hole in their class. They'll find their next great Paulie Fink through a reality-show style competition, to be judged by the only objective person around: Caitlyn, who never even met Paulie Fink. Who was this kid, anyway--prankster, performance artist, philosopher, or fool? Caitlyn's quest to understand Paulie is about to teach her more about herself than she ever imagined.

    Told via multiple voices, interviews, and other documents, The Next Great Paulie Fink is a lighthearted yet surprisingly touching exploration of how we build up and tear down our own myths...about others, our communities, and ourselves.

    Ali Benjamin is a New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award Finalist for The Thing About Jellyfish, and the co-writer for HIV-positive teen Paige Rawl's coming-of-age memoir Positive as well as Tim Howard's national bestseller The Keeper. She lives near Williamstown, Massachusetts.

    The Frogs

    Saturday Apr 27
    8 pm - 10 pm

    Boston Conservatory Theater

    Loosely based on the Greek comedy written in 405 B.C. by Aristophanes, The Frogs playfully explores the great challenges of human existence: confronting our fears, understanding life and death, and challenging the distractions that can prevent us from achieving our goals.

    This boisterously hilarious, yet poignant musical follows Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and drama, and his slave, Xanthias, on a journey to Hades to collect renowned playwright George Bernard Shaw so that he may enlighten the easily misled and coerced masses. Along this journey, Dionysus and Xanthias meet Chekhov, Congreve, Ibsen, Brecht, and a chorus of frogs. Shakespeare makes an unexpected appearance, and before long, he and Shaw find themselves in a battle of words. Who will win and have the honor of becoming reincarnated: the Bard or Bernard?

    Jeffrey Gaines

    Saturday Apr 27
    8 pm - 10 pm

    Chelmsford Center for the Arts
    1A North Rd, Chelmsford, MA 01824, USA

    Jeffrey Gaines has been heralded for his soul-searching lyrics and his powerful live performances.

    “Gaines’ soulful, wounded vocals make a case for his being one of pop’s finest singers…an artist who deserves far more attention than some of his more hyped, yet less talented peers.” – BOSTON GLOBE

    With only his voice and a guitar for accompaniment, Jeffrey Gaines has earned a reputation as a captivating performer, entertaining audiences everywhere he goes.

    Raised in Harrisburg, PA by parents more inclined to spin soul classics by Aretha and Otis than the New Wave and Brit Rock blasting from their son’s room, a teenaged Gaines began singing and playing guitar in several local garage bands. He soon decided to set out on his own and quickly landed a record deal, releasing Jeffrey Gaines, the first of his five studio releases. The album garnered four stars from The Philadelphia Inquirer, describing Gaines as “…an ethereal soul…insistent, impassioned, full of self-knowledge.” Somewhat Slightly Dazed, and Galore followed. Interview Magazine called Gaines’ music “soul-searching” and “refreshingly free of jargon, sentiment or cliché.”

    Jeffrey Gaines released Always Be (Artemis) to both critical and commercial praise. Featuring his emotional interpretation of “In Your Eyes” and his own soaringly beautiful “Always Be,” the album hit #5 on R&R Callout America CHR/Pop list, also reaching #45 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. The New York Post proclaimed Always Be as “a dozen-song mix…that completely illustrates the depth he is capable of.”

    Gaines’ impressive catalog grew with Toward The Sun, produced by Mitchell Froom (Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt, and Crowded House). Mojo noted, “This established soul-folkie’s sexy growl has an underlying edge, making it a memorable album. Heartfelt unpretentious.”

    Harlem: In Situ

    Saturday Apr 27
    10 pm - 5 am

    Addison Gallery of American Art

    Harlem is as much a place as a myth. Throughout the 20th century, this northern Manhattan neighborhood has been written into history as many things; however, in this context, Harlem is ultimately and unceasingly, a black creative mecca, a place whose rich social and cultural fabric has been woven out of the abundance of people of African descent worldwide who have come together in its streets, salons, parks, restaurants, and clubs, influencing generations of artists, musicians, and writers. Harlem: In Situ explores the depth and complexity of this renowned neighborhood, highlighting the work of some of the most important visual artists working from the late 1920s through today. Initially inspired by the Addison’s trove of Harlem street-photography, which includes significant bodies of work such as Harlem Document (1935) by Aaron Siskind, Harlem Heroes (1930–1960) by Carl van Vechten, Harlem, USA (1975–1979) by Dawoud Bey (a three-time Elson Artist-in-Residence at Phillips Academy), 1920s–1950s (Harlem) by Lucien Aigner, and The Sweet Flypaper of Life (1984) by Roy DeCarava, this show also includes prints from the collection by Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, James Lesesne Wells, and Vincent D. Smith, as well as several key works by nearly a dozen artists, working across time and media, including Charles Als ton, Jordan Casteel, Aaron Douglas, Miatta Kawinzi, Alice Neel, Lorraine O’Grady, and Kehinde Wiley, that will come to the Addison as loans from sister institutions. These artists and their works investigate the legacy and trajectory of Harlem, which encompasses mass migration, opulence, cultural renaissance, depression, demise, empowerment, pride, and gentrification.

    Balls, ramps, jumps, loops--and physics fun! Race golf balls along winding, sloping, and looping tracks and explore how gravity, friction, speed, and acceleration affect the velocity and trajectory of moving objects. Velocity Engineering Lab will be located in the Middlesex Savings Bank Community Gallery on the Discovery Museum's first floor from January 12 through April 28th.

    Five distinct activity areas—a Roller Coaster and Serpentine, Jump Track, Loop Track, Half-Pipe, and Dish—demonstrate the speed, trajectory, velocity, and momentum of moving objects. Using golf balls, kids and their adults can create experiments and compare results with data visualization software that captures multiple test runs; animated definitions of key physics principles correspond to videos of real-world examples.

    Love balls and ramps? Come experience Velocity!

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy

    The Addison’s rich collections provide a great many points of entry for understanding the history and development of American art from the 18th century to the present. The almost limitless opportunities these afford for thematic and chronological presentations offering new interpretations are enhanced through additions to the holdings and thoughtful combinations of works. This fall, in four first-floor galleries, four curators have explored a theme, style, or artistic idiom represented in depth across the many media in the collection. This selection of works examines the representation of women, the investigation of abstraction at its introduction and, later, at mid-century, and the use of technology. 

    In each room, the groupings include intriguing works of sculpture—an opportunity to reflect upon the precedents for and successors to the figural work of Paul Manship, whose important works—both hallowed and innovative subjects—may be found on the second floor.

    Museum hours:

    Tuesday–Saturday: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy
    3 Chapel Ave, Andover, MA 01810, USA

    What is place? Is it a set of discrete coordinates fixed in space or something less concrete, something harder to define? Drawn from the Addison’s rich holdings of American art from the colonial era to the present, this exhibition endeavors to investigate the nuanced and varied physical and human characteristics that set place apart from mere location. Divided into three salient categories: nature, home, and city, the works on view demonstrate the ways in which our individual, subjective notions of place are fundamentally shaped by visual imagery. A cozy hearth and a warm fire, throngs of people on a congested sidewalk, lofty mountain peaks reflected in crystal clear water—themes repeated across centuries of paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, watercolors, and sculptures—conjure images both vivid and visceral. While perhaps representative of a specific home, city, or site in nature, the signifiers of place on view in these galleries transcend the particular to appeal to the universal.

    GALLERY HOURS

    John Goodman: not recent color

    Sunday Apr 28
    10 am - 5 pm

    Addison Gallery of American Art

    Comprised of brilliant color photographs, the majority of which have never before been exhibited, John Goodman: not recent color examines the American cultural landscape through the coming of age of a young artist in the 1970s and 1980s. 

    Made from recently rediscovered Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides, these photographs transport viewers to another time with their richly saturated colors and cinematic views. Piercing yet tender images shot in diners, bowling alleys, and darkened theaters, outside phone booths and gas stations, and on city streets and sidewalks conjure moments in individual lives and social interactions that together tell a story about the slowly changing social fabric of Goodman’s studio neighborhood in Boston––and the country at large. 

    Predating the work for which Goodman is best known—poignant and gritty photographs capturing subjects such as Boston’s famed Combat Zone, backstage at the Boston Ballet, the streets of Havana, and a Times Square boxing gym—these early works announce a lifelong interest in recording fleeting moments, as well as the more abstract and enduring essence of places and people.

    The Frogs

    Sunday Apr 28
    8 pm - 10 pm

    Boston Conservatory Theater

    Loosely based on the Greek comedy written in 405 B.C. by Aristophanes, The Frogs playfully explores the great challenges of human existence: confronting our fears, understanding life and death, and challenging the distractions that can prevent us from achieving our goals.

    This boisterously hilarious, yet poignant musical follows Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and drama, and his slave, Xanthias, on a journey to Hades to collect renowned playwright George Bernard Shaw so that he may enlighten the easily misled and coerced masses. Along this journey, Dionysus and Xanthias meet Chekhov, Congreve, Ibsen, Brecht, and a chorus of frogs. Shakespeare makes an unexpected appearance, and before long, he and Shaw find themselves in a battle of words. Who will win and have the honor of becoming reincarnated: the Bard or Bernard?

    Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
    Book by Burt Shevelove and Nathan Lane
    Directed and choreographed by Larry Sousa
    Music directed and conducted by Eric Stern

    Harlem: In Situ

    Sunday Apr 28
    10 pm - 5 am

    Addison Gallery of American Art

    Harlem is as much a place as a myth. Throughout the 20th century, this northern Manhattan neighborhood has been written into history as many things; however, in this context, Harlem is ultimately and unceasingly, a black creative mecca, a place whose rich social and cultural fabric has been woven out of the abundance of people of African descent worldwide who have come together in its streets, salons, parks, restaurants, and clubs, influencing generations of artists, musicians, and writers. Harlem: In Situ explores the depth and complexity of this renowned neighborhood, highlighting the work of some of the most important visual artists working from the late 1920s through today. Initially inspired by the Addison’s trove of Harlem street-photography, which includes significant bodies of work such as Harlem Document (1935) by Aaron Siskind, Harlem Heroes (1930–1960) by Carl van Vechten, Harlem, USA (1975–1979) by Dawoud Bey (a three-time Elson Artist-in-Residence at Phillips Academy), 1920s–1950s (Harlem) by Lucien Aigner, and The Sweet Flypaper of Life (1984) by Roy DeCarava, this show also includes prints from the collection by Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, James Lesesne Wells, and Vincent D. Smith, as well as several key works by nearly a dozen artists, working across time and media, including Charles Als ton, Jordan Casteel, Aaron Douglas, Miatta Kawinzi, Alice Neel, Lorraine O’Grady, and Kehinde Wiley, that will come to the Addison as loans from sister institutions. These artists and their works investigate the legacy and trajectory of Harlem, which encompasses mass migration, opulence, cultural renaissance, depression, demise, empowerment, pride, and gentrification.

    Open Tuesday-Saturday 10 am to 5 pm, Sunday 1-5 pm
