Artists’ Talk: Annie Lee and Brian Zimerle

Thursday, Mar 28, 6:30-7:30pm (Deer Gallery)

‘Ubi Sunt’ is from the Latin phrase Ubi sunt qui ante nos fuerunt? meaning “Where are those who were before us?” (Wikipedia). Originating in biblical times, the concept has been used throughout the centuries to represent a meditation on mortality and the temporary nature of life, as well as to convey a sense of nostalgia. Artists Annie Lee-Zimerle and Brian Zimerle reflected upon this concept for their new artworks, creating two separate bodies of work in conversation with each other. The exhibition includes painting, printmaking, and ceramics.

Please join us in the gallery on Thursday, Mar 28 from 6:30–7:30pm for a special artist talk event with Annie Lee and Brian Zimerle. This event is free for Springfield Museum of Art Members/$5 for non-members.

Mozart at the Museum: Stravinsky’s l’Histoire de Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale)

Thursday, Apr 18, 7pm

Join us for the second Mozart at the Museum. Hors d’ouevres and cocktails at 6 pm, followed by the concert event at 7 pm.

In L’Histoire du Soldat, Stravinsky provides a musical setting of the legend of Faust, in which a returning WWI soldier sells his violin to the devil in return for the promise of fortune and wisdom. The devil, however, has much more in store for this young man. This chamber work will feature members of the Springfield Symphony Orchestra, three actors – Larry Coressel, David Estrop and Beth Dixon – providing narration, and dancer Celina Schroer, plus computer animation by Tyler Newby
