    Location: 45 Macculloch Ave, Morristown, NJ 07960
    When: June 16, 2013
    Time: 4:30 pm

    On Sunday June 16th Macculloch Hall Historical Museum welcomes author and historian William B. Styple for a Father’s Day presentation about artist James E. Kelly.  Shortly after the Civil War Irish-American sculptor James Edward Kelly (1855-1933) made bronze portraits of over 40 Union Army generals.  While the heroes of the war sat for Kelly, the artist interviewed them with intimate questions about the high points of their military careers, and the minute details of their notable battles.  During Kelly’s series of interviews he spent time with those who personally knew Abraham Lincoln.  Kelly recorded over 60 eyewitness accounts, a never-before-published oral history of the 16th President, which Kelly carefully preserved in his notebooks; detailing Lincoln's physical appearance, personality, and qualities as a statesman during a dark time of national crisis.  Mr. Styple will be discussing Kelly's lifetime effort to depict Lincoln accurately "as the embodiment of the spirit of the time as well as the men whom he led in triumph."

     

    William B. Styple has held a lifelong interest in New Jersey history, and especially the role of his state in the American Civil War.  Styple was born in Ridgewood, grew up in Kearny and since 1988, has edited, co-authored and authored nearly two dozen books and documentaries.  In 2012, he released newly-discovered documents that reveal treachery in the Union High Command—these are published for the first time in his latest book: “McClellan’s Other Story—The Political Intrigue of Colonel Thomas M. Key, Confidential Aide to General George B. McClellan”.  Styple currently lives in Morris County, New Jersey and is writing the biography of General Philip Kearny. He will be available after the program to sell and sign his books.

     

    Styple is a co-curator, with the Museum’s Curator of Collections Ryan Hyman, of a new exhibit in the upstairs gallery at the Museum: “American Heroes in Bronze: The Artwork of James E. Kelly.”  Along with presenting a unique perspective on the famous figures and events from the Civil War, also included in this exhibition are Kelly’s depictions of notable events from the Revolutionary War and well known civilians such as Thomas Edison and Clara Barton.  Bas reliefs, busts, engravings and bronze sculptures depict these heroes. The collection of Kelly’s work is on loan from private collectors and can be viewed during touring hours until October 31st.

     

    Styple’s program will be presented in the main gallery where vivid examples of the antique Oriental rug collection are currently being showcased, complemented by textbook examples of fine porcelain, silver, glass and furniture collected by Museum founder, W. Parsons Todd. This exhibit also includes two bronzes from the Museum collection, “Saving the Colors”, by Henry Merwin Shrady 1899 and “Dancing Nymphs” by Brenda Putnam c. 1919, the only non-military bronze in the collection.  The “A Fine Collection: Treasures from the Vault” exhibit has a perimeter layout which leaves the center of the room open for a series of speakers and musical programming taking place in conjunction with the exhibit.  Styple’s June presentation is the last in the series.  A series of musical performances in the historic gardens will begin on Sunday July 7th and continue on Sundays throughout July. Please visit maccullochhall.org for further details. 

     

    Tickets for Sunday programs will go on sale from 1pm on the day of the program, no advance sales.  The presentation begins at 4:30pm.  House tours (regular admission applies) take place throughout the afternoon, the last tour leaves at 3pm. The upstairs galleries will remain open until 4:30pm, with the “A Fine Collection” exhibit closing at 3pm in preparation for the program. Tickets to hear speakers are Adults $8; Seniors & Students $6; Children 6 – 12 $4. Members and children under 5 are free. Tickets include admission to take part in a house tour through the period rooms of the Museum for visitors who sign up for a tour during the afternoon.  Visitors can also enjoy the “Thomas Nast: President Maker and Campaign Breaker”, and the “American Heroes in Bronze” exhibits prior to the presentation.

Parsons Todd through its historic site, collections, exhibits, and educational and cultural programs.

    "Another Such Victory, and I Am Done", by Thomas Nast

    Location: 45 Macculloch Ave, Morristown, NJ 07960
    When: Weekly on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays
    Time: 1:00 pm–4:00 pm

    Macculloch Hall Historical Museum presents more than twenty examples of presidential campaign images from the late nineteenth century with the exhibit “Thomas Nast: President Maker and Campaign Breaker.”  The exhibit illustrates six presidential campaigns from 1864 through 1884.  This popular exhibit has now been extended and will be available to view during touring hours Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday afternoons from 1pm – 4pm through July 21st 2013.

     

    Thomas Nast (1840-1902) was America’s leading political cartoonist in the second half of the nineteenth century.  From the studio in his Morristown, NJ home, Nast popularized the symbols of the Democratic (donkey) and Republican (elephant) parties that continue more than a century later.  Nast, a staunch Republican, illustrated his views of the presidential campaigns for Harper’s Weekly.  He supported the candidate he felt would best serve the country.  The power of Nast’s pen was evident — each candidate that he supported went on to become the President of the United States.  Equally important were the scathing cartoons Nast drew of the candidates he did not support.

    During the presidential campaigns and elections of 1868 and 1872, Nast stayed true to the Republican Party and supported Ulysses S. Grant.  This helped Grant, a personal friend of Nast, to win both elections.  The exhibit features Nast’s images of Grant as well as campaign banners for Grant and one of his rivals, Horace Greeley.  Included in the exhibit is a personal letter in Grant’s hand to Thomas Nast accepting an invitation to the artist’s Morristown mansion.

     

    Thomas Nast continued to support the Republican Party in the election of 1876 and helped to elect Rutherford B. Hayes.  This election against Samuel Tilden was a fierce battle with scandals about vote tampering surrounding each man.  “Another Such Victory, and I am Done” was published in the March 24, 1877 edition of Harper’s Weekly which depicts a battered elephant to show how tough the election was for Hayes, Nast, and the entire Republican Party.  It was not until the election of 1884 that Nast temporarily broke with the Republican Party and supported the Democratic candidate Grover Cleveland.  Nast felt Cleveland would best serve the country, so he helped Cleveland to win the office.  Macculloch Hall Historical Museum holds America’s largest collection of original artwork by Thomas Nast.  Museum founder W. Parsons Todd began the collection with purchases directly from the artist’s family.  With recent acquisitions, the Nast collection at the Museum numbers more than 3,500 pieces. 

     

    Visitors can also enjoy an exhibit of bronze sculptures is currently on display in the upstairs gallery of Macculloch Hall Historical Museum.  “American Heroes in Bronze: The Artwork of James E.Kelly” is co-curated by William B. Styple and the Museum’s Curator of Collections, Ryan Hyman.  This unique exhibit explores the work of Irish-American sculptor James E. Kelly (1855-1933).  In the decades following the American Civil War, more than forty Union Generals visited the New York City studio of Kelly, who was highly respected for his artwork’s historical accuracy.  While the war heroes sat, the artist conducted in-depth interviews regarding their wartime service, and heard their very personal stories of Fort Sumter, Antietam, Gettysburg, and Appomattox.  The work resulting from these personal interviews presents a unique perspective on the famous figures and events from the Civil War. Also included in this exhibition are Kelly’s depictions of notable events from the Revolutionary War and well known civilians such as Thomas Edison and Clara Barton.  Bas reliefs, busts, engravings and bronze sculptures depict these heroes. The collection of Kelly’s work is on loan from private collectors and can be viewed during touring hours until October 31st.

    Rabbi David Ellenson

    Location: Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel
    432 Scotland Rd, South Orange, NJ
    When: June 15, 2013
    Time: 6:30 pm

    On Saturday, June 15, Rabbi David Ellenson, Ph.D., president of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), is making a special guest appearance at Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel (TSTI) to honor his former rabbinical student, Rabbi Daniel Cohen, who is celebrating his 20th Anniversary at TSTI. The I.H. and Anna Grancell Professor of Jewish Religious Thought, Ellenson is an internationally recognized researcher and widely published author in the areas of Jewish religious thought, ethics and modern Jewish history.

    TSTI invites the community to attend and hear Rabbi Ellenson's stimulating address on "Reform Remains a Verb." The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a lavish assortment of food and drinks and end with an elaborate dessert reception. Tickets for the gala are available to the public by calling the TSTI office at (973) 763-4116 or via email at lsporn@tstinj.org.

    "We are delighted to have someone of Rabbi Ellenson's stature within the Reform movement join us as our community comes together to honor the past and look forward to the future," said Jay Rice, president of TSTI's board of trustees.

    The June 15 reception is the culmination of a two-week celebration of Rabbi Cohen's tenure at TSTI. On June 7, the temple will welcome Professor Carol Meyers, one of Cohen's professors during his undergraduate years at Duke University. During the Friday night service, Meyers, a noted scholar on biblical history and archaeology, will speak on "The Relevancy of Archaeology in Today's Political World," while children enjoy a special enrichment program.

    Further honoring Rabbi Cohen's 20-year milestone, TSTI has established an educational endowment in his honor. The Rabbinic Endowment for Jewish Learning will enhance the synagogue's ability to provide high-quality Jewish education to future generations of temple members and the wider community. The endowment was announced late this winter as a way to create a lasting legacy and reflect Cohen's passion for progressive Jewish education. Temple members have already responded enthusiastically with pledges of more than $600,000 to date.

    Based in South Orange, New Jersey, Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel is a Reform congregation that welcomes all who wish to participate in and celebrate Jewish traditions and rituals. The temple draws members from many towns including South Orange, Maplewood, Short Hills, Millburn, Livingston and West Orange. It is recognized throughout the region for its innovative programs, worship services, community events, and groups dedicated to a wide array of religious, social and educational interests.

  • 05/31/13--08:39: Hat City Streets Festival
  • Location: 580 Forest St, Orange, NJ 07050
    When: June 15, 2013
    Time: 9:00 am–11:00 pm

    The inaugural Hat City Streets Festival on Saturday, June 15 from 11am to 9pm, is a day-long cavalcade of music, arts exhibitions, family activities, delicious food, and non-stop fun that reflects the spirit and diversity of the region and celebrates the creativity of Orange. The Festival is free and open to the public.


    Produced by ValleyArts and hosted by volunteers of Creative Orange, the Festival is centered at the corner of Forest and Tompkins Streets, which will be closed for the occasion, and on the grounds of the International Central Gospel Church (438 Valley Street, Orange NJ). Festival programs will also take place at the Firehouse Gallery, Hat City Kitchen, Ironworks Community Art Center, Yema Gallery, Arts Unbound, and other nearby spaces in the Valley Arts District. Free parking is available at nearby churches, and on the streets.


    The Hat City Streets Festival will feature concert headliners that range from Brazilian reggae to contemporary gospel; appearances by marching bands, choirs, dance ensembles, and a step team; arts exhibitions by professional artists from around the region; and a variety of arts activities for children and families, including hat-making workshops that evoke the neighborhood's past as the hat-making center of the world.  "Our Festival will be something akin to a great church picnic and art show that transforms itself into a professional concert stage," said Richard T. Bryant, ValleyArts executive director and co-chair of Creative Orange. "In addition to a full day of music, art, food, and fun, festivalgoers will also experience the extraordinary hospitality of the people of Orange." 


    Opening at 11am, the "Family Stage" will feature performances by professional bands and dance ensembles, and appearances by award-winning vocal and instrumental performers from Orange High School, including the marching band.


    Heralding the afternoon opening of  "The Mainstage" will be 100 Voices of Hillside, the acclaimed children's choir directed by Troy Bell.  Next up is Kiwi, the fast-rising New Jersey band that performs Brazilian music and jazz with influences of Jamaican reggae, ska, rocksteady, American folk, soul, and R&B.  Also featured is Wincey Terry, the gifted storyteller and powerful singer whose songs of life and faith are propelled by a tght band that includes brass and winds. At the dinner hour, one of the New York area's most popular Salsa bands, Ray Rodriquez and Swing Sabrosa, will launch a big, brassy celebration of Latin music that will have you dancing.

    Richie Furay of Buffalo Springfield & POCO

    Location: South Orange Performing Arts Center
    1 Trenchard Pl, South Orange, NJ
    When: June 16, 2013
    Time: 7:00 pm

    Two Country Rock Legends Perform & Sign Guitar for Auction

    Richie Furay helped invent country rock music as a founding member of Buffalo Springfield & Poco.  Furay, a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee brings his great band and timeless tunes – plus that crystal clear tenor voice to SOPAC on June 16.  Performing with Furay for an exclusive appearance is Paul Cotton, a four decade alumnus of Poco and led the band with several hit songs including Heart Of The Night.  Both performers will sign a guitar by D’Angelico Guitars that will be available in a silent auction. This concert event is a benefit show with proceeds donated to area nonprofit organizations and SOPAC.

    The show will open with a video tribute honoring the life & career of rock historian Pete Fornatale, who died suddenly in April 2012.  Fornatale was a Buffalo Springfield fan and huge supporter of Poco playing their music frequently on the radio. He referred to their music as “Foot stomping, toe tapping, hand clapping, feel-good happy music that puts a smile on your face!”.  Fornatale said shortly before he died, “There are only a handful of performers that started out in the 60’s who are still at the TOP of their game. Richie Furay heads the list”.

    Buffalo Springfield is considered by many to be one of the most influential groups in the history of rock music, which Furay founded along with Stephen Stills & Neil Young.  According to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, “It would be hard to imagine the careers of the Eagles, Jackson Browne and others without Buffalo Springfield as a precursor”. 

    After Buffalo Springfield disbanded, Furay co-founded POCO along with renowned musician Jim Messina(Loggins & Messina). Some music critics consider Furay’s tune “Pickin’ Up The Pieces” on POCO’s debut album the world’s first country-rock song. It was the sound that, in turn, influenced today’s country music that is heard from artists coming out of Nashville.

    David Stone, co-owner of Nancy And David Fine Jewels in downtown Millburn, NJ is longtime friends with Richie Furay, as was Pete Fornatale, who was friends with both of them and Paul Cotton. Stone is on the Board of Governors at SOPAC.  When the opportunity came up to host Furay in concert for the third time in three years, Stone coordinated the exclusive appearance of Cotton to reunite with Furay for this performance only and decided to make it a tribute to honor Pete Fornatale who encouraged Stone to continue coordinating and presenting fundraising concerts that Fornatale previously co-hosted with Stone the past few years. 

    In addition to tickets, there is limited availability to purchase dinner with the performers, attend a pre-show dessert reception, and a post-show meet & greet.

    This event is presented by Nancy And David Fine Jewels and sponsored by D’Angelico Guitars, Investors Bank, WFUV-FM.  For additional event information or to purchase tickets, please go to www.SOPACnow.org

    Livingston Taylor picked up his first guitar at the age of thirteen, beginning a career that has encompassed performance, songwriting and teaching. Born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, Livingston is the fourth child in a very musical family that includes Alex, James, Kate and Hugh. Livingston began performing on the Boston coffeehouse circuit at age sixteen and made his first record at the ripe old age of eighteen.  He  has continued to create well-crafted, introspective and original songs that have earned him listeners worldwide.  From top-forty hits “I Will Be in Love with You” and “I’ll Come Running,” to “I Can Dream of You” and “Boatman,” both recorded by his brother James, Livingston’s creative output has continued unabated.

    In addition to recording, Livingston has never stopped performing, touring with major artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Jimmy Buffett, Fleetwood Mac, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and Jethro Tull.  He maintains a busy concert schedule to this day, performing an average of 80 shows a year that mostly include his own music, with an occasional folk, pop, rock, gospel, or Gershwin cover thrown in for good measure.  Seeing him in the intimate confines of Hamilton Stage will be a true treat for all who attend.
