Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor announces|
Canal Stories, Artifacts, and Images Wanted
The New York State Museum is preparing for a new exhibit on the Erie Canal to open in 2017. New York’s Erie Canal: Gateway to the Nation will highlight those visionaries, engineers, financiers, and laborers who built the canal and people from every walk of life who came in its wake. The exhibition will culminate in an exploration of the people who live near, work by, and enjoy the canal as a unique heritage corridor today.
To submit a story, object, or photograph for consideration, please contact Brad Utter, Senior Historian and Curator by July 1, 2016 at (518) 474-0028 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
ONGOING EXHIBITIONS AND PRODUCTIONS|
The New York State Museum, in collaboration with the Shaker Museum in Mount Lebanon, Hancock Shaker Village, and the Shaker Heritage Society (Albany), as well as the State Library and State Archives, present the exhibition
The Shakers: America’ Quiet Revolutionaries
Museum Open Tuesday-Sunday: 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
New York State Museum, Cultural Education Center, 260 Madison Avenue, Albany, NY 12230
Admission: The NYS Museum is free. Donations are accepted at the door
The exhibition details one of the most significant and influential communal religious groups in American History. Artifacts from these preeminent Shaker collections will be exhibited together for the first time at the New York State Museum in November 2014. The Shakers launched a revolution parallel to the American Colonies’ struggle against British rule. As they sought religious freedom in America, their spiritual practices and community focus set them apart from greater society. Their devotional routines as well as their product innovations, marketing acumen and views towards gender equality seemed “revolutionary” to the outside world. Thematically divided into six areas, the exhibit will show how the Shakers’ unique model of an equal society challenged the norms of the new nation.
November 15, 2014 — March 6, 2016
