ABOUT The Solo(s) Project House
The original Latin and Greek roots of PROJECT mean "something that comes before anything else happens", and that is precisely what Solo(s) Project House is in a nutshell; evolving projects around a completed one. A space where gallery and studio are elbow to elbow, where the rigors of creation are coupled with the satisfaction of completion. The gallery is a sound stage upon which the house residents can imagine their months of creativity displayed from beginning to end. A true partner in the exhibit process, the artists are commissioned with a curatorial role that gives the visitor a 360 degree view of the creators vision. Far from an original white walled space, SPH is a home for experimental installations, avante-garde performance art and a myriad of media art. With an ever evolving pool of artists from various cultural and personal experiences SPH is a true melting pot of artistic expression.

SPH is located at 972 Broad St. in the arts district of downtown Newark, NJ. It is free and open to the public, wed - Friday from 12 - 6pm.

He is the author of Upon The Tented Field, about New Jersey’s role in the Civil War told through six soldiers’ letters of the 14th NJ Volunteers, and A Billy Yank Governor: The life and Times of New Jersey’s Franklin Murphy. The latter captures the true story of a young Civil War soldier who later is elected governor of New Jersey. Olsen has also lectured extensively to historical societies, college and university honor societies, libraries, and fraternal organizations. He is retired after teaching history for over thirty years at Marlboro High School in Marlboro, New Jersey. He also taught history courses at Georgian Court University and Brookdale Community College. Mr. Olsen will be available after the lecture to sell and sign “Upon the Tented Field” and “A Billy Yank Governor: The Life & Times of NJ’s Franklin Murphy.”  These books contain research that was the inspiration for this lecture.

All lectures start at 7pm with tickets available from 6:30pm and are held at the Cincinnati Masonic Lodge No. 3, 39 Maple Avenue (one block from the museum). Tickets for the lectures are Adults $8, Seniors $6, Students (over 12 years) $6. Members of the Museum will receive a $2 discount for these special programs.

Time: 10:30 am–4:30 pm

The Colcha Project

Monday March 5th – Wednesday April 4th, 2012

Opening Reception:

Tuesday, March 6th – 5pm to 9pm

 

          The Walsh Gallery is pleased to present “The Colcha Project,” curated by Doris Caçoilo and Jeanne Brasile.  The traveling exhibition is an ongoing project that uses crochet as a catalyst for bringing people together in an exploration of culture, family and collaboration.  In the Portuguese tradition, colcha (quilts) are crocheted, usually by a young woman’s mother.  The quilts are included in a woman’s bridal chest and may be handed down through generations.  “The Colcha Project” was developed by Caçoilo as a way to share this tradition with others, inviting guests to participate in the creation of new colcha while visiting the gallery.  Each iteration of the project results in a new quilt, which shall be on display in subsequent exhibitions.  The making of each quilt is documented, and this documentation also becomes part of “The Colcha Project.”  The communal act of crocheting provides a catalyst for bonding as each participant adds their story to the larger project and they become part of its history. 

               In addition to the existing colcha, a quilt in progress will be on display in the gallery and visitors will be encouraged to contribute to its making.  Each Sunday between the hours of 1pm and 5pm while “The Colcha Project” is on view in the Walsh Gallery, visitors are invited to join the curators and other members of the group to crochet, share their stories and become part of the “The Colcha Project.”  Yarn and needles will be provided for those who do not have their own and a potluck lunch will be served.
