[more+]

In his essay “The Weight of Glory,” C.S. Lewis suggests that beauty comes to us as “brightness, splendor, and luminosity.” We know that encounters with beauty are essential to human flourishing. Indeed, such experiences capture our imagination and animate our souls; they invite us to pause and consider the nature and meaning of our material world and the one who created it all. In the modern period, artists often had a conflicted relationship to beauty. On one hand, they were drawn to beauty’s sublime qualities. On the other, they realized that a superficial understanding of beauty could be either a means to avoid the world’s suffering or a charm that incites consumer desire. Nonetheless, our need for beauty remains. In the shadow of Adam and Eve’s fall from grace there exists what some describe as a “broken beauty” — beauty that still captures heart and mind but contends with the fallenness of our world. This exhibit gathers more than 35 contemporary works of art executed in a variety of media and genres that bear witness to beauty as it appears to us in the complex landscape of contemporary culture.

Ethel Waters was at the peak of her singing career when artist Luigi Lucioni painted her portrait in 1939. His striking portrait of the star was met with critical acclaim, winning first prize at the 1939 Carnegie International Exposition. Waters also appreciated the portrait on a personal level and purchased it from the artist. In this small exhibition, Waters’ portrait is presented with five photographs from the permanent collection of the Birmingham Museum of Art. Together these works offer a glimpse of the range of representations of African American musicians and performance spaces created from the 1930s to the 1950s.

The Birmingham Museum of Art is grateful to the Huntsville Museum of Art and its executive director Christopher J. Madkour for making this important loan possible.

Developed in part for Alabama’s bicentennial celebration, Alabama Justice: The Cases and Faces That Changed A Nation, is an interactive, traveling exhibit that covers issues including civil rights, equal protection, city zoning and prayer in public schools.

This exhibit tells the stories of eight landmark Alabama-based cases - Wallace v Jaffree (1985), NAACP v Alabama (1958), New York Times v Sullivan (1964), Scottsboro Trials, Gomillion v Lightfoot (1960), Frontiero v Richardson (1973) Reynolds v Sims (1964) and Katzenbach v. McClung (1964).

Created by Dr. Steven P. Brown of Auburn University along with Backstory Educational Media, the exhibit presents each case by issue, the arguments and the Supreme Court’s ruling. The digital interactive components will enable viewers to scroll through the historical background and legal precedents for each case as well as hear actual oral arguments. Additional panels include information about the Constitution and Bill of Rights as well as profiles of Alabama’s three Supreme Court justices – John McKinley, John Archibald Campbell and Hugo Black.

[more+]

In his essay “The Weight of Glory,” C.S. Lewis suggests that beauty comes to us as “brightness, splendor, and luminosity.” We know that encounters with beauty are essential to human flourishing. Indeed, such experiences capture our imagination and animate our souls; they invite us to pause and consider the nature and meaning of our material world and the one who created it all. In the modern period, artists often had a conflicted relationship to beauty. On one hand, they were drawn to beauty’s sublime qualities. On the other, they realized that a superficial understanding of beauty could be either a means to avoid the world’s suffering or a charm that incites consumer desire. Nonetheless, our need for beauty remains. In the shadow of Adam and Eve’s fall from grace there exists what some describe as a “broken beauty” — beauty that still captures heart and mind but contends with the fallenness of our world. This exhibit gathers more than 35 contemporary works of art executed in a variety of media and genres that bear witness to beauty as it appears to us in the complex landscape of contemporary culture.

Ethel Waters was at the peak of her singing career when artist Luigi Lucioni painted her portrait in 1939. His striking portrait of the star was met with critical acclaim, winning first prize at the 1939 Carnegie International Exposition. Waters also appreciated the portrait on a personal level and purchased it from the artist. In this small exhibition, Waters’ portrait is presented with five photographs from the permanent collection of the Birmingham Museum of Art. Together these works offer a glimpse of the range of representations of African American musicians and performance spaces created from the 1930s to the 1950s.

The Birmingham Museum of Art is grateful to the Huntsville Museum of Art and its executive director Christopher J. Madkour for making this important loan possible.

Developed in part for Alabama’s bicentennial celebration, Alabama Justice: The Cases and Faces That Changed A Nation, is an interactive, traveling exhibit that covers issues including civil rights, equal protection, city zoning and prayer in public schools.

This exhibit tells the stories of eight landmark Alabama-based cases - Wallace v Jaffree (1985), NAACP v Alabama (1958), New York Times v Sullivan (1964), Scottsboro Trials, Gomillion v Lightfoot (1960), Frontiero v Richardson (1973) Reynolds v Sims (1964) and Katzenbach v. McClung (1964).

Created by Dr. Steven P. Brown of Auburn University along with Backstory Educational Media, the exhibit presents each case by issue, the arguments and the Supreme Court’s ruling. The digital interactive components will enable viewers to scroll through the historical background and legal precedents for each case as well as hear actual oral arguments. Additional panels include information about the Constitution and Bill of Rights as well as profiles of Alabama’s three Supreme Court justices – John McKinley, John Archibald Campbell and Hugo Black.
