May 1 is the deadline for the “Created Equal” film sets – please see full announcement below.

Karen S. Mittelman | Director, Division of Public Programs | National Endowment for the Humanities| 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W., Room 426 | Washington, D.C. 20506 | 202.606.8631 |kmittelman@... | www.neh.gov

 

 

 

 Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle

A special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities

 

Applications open for film sets and grants to develop public programming in your community

 

The National Endowment for the Humanities, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, announces the launch of the special initiative, Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle. The project brings together four nationally acclaimed films that connect the stories of the long civil rights movement to spark public conversations about the changing meanings of freedom and equality in U.S. history. 

 

 

About the films:

 

 

The Abolitionists

A small group of moral reformers in the 1830s launched one of the most ambitious social movements imaginable: the immediate emancipation of millions of African Americans who were enslaved. Produced and directed by Rob Rapley. Sharon Grimberg, executive producer for American Experience, WGBH.

 

  

Slavery by Another Name

Even as slavery ended in the south after the Civil War, new forms of forced labor kept thousands of African Americans in bondage until the onset of World War II. Produced and directed by Sam Pollard. Catherine Allan, executive producer for Twin Cities Public Television. Douglas A. Blackmon, co-executive producer. A production of TPT National Productions, in association with Two Dollars & A Dream, Inc.

 

 

Loving Story

The moving account of Richard and Mildred Loving, who were arrested in 1958 for violating Virginia's ban on interracial marriage. Their struggle culminated in a landmark Supreme Court decision, Loving v. Virginia (1967.) Directed by Nancy Buirski; produced by Nancy Buirski and Elisabeth Haviland James. A co-production of Augusta Films and HBO Films. Distributed by Icarus Films.

 

 

Freedom Riders

The Freedom Rides of 1961 were a pivotal moment in the long Civil Rights struggle that redefined America. This documentary film offers an inside look at the brave band of activists who challenged segregation in the Deep South. Produced and directed by Stanley Nelson. Mark Samels, executive producer for American Experience, WGBH.

 

 

Up to 500 communities across the nation will receive these four inspiring NEH-funded films on Civil Rights history, accompanied by programming resources to guide public conversations. Each participating site will receive an award of up to $1,200 to support public programming exploring the themes of the Created Equal project.

  

Applications are open to museums and historical societies; humanities councils; public, academic, and community college libraries; and nonprofit community organizations.

Application receipt deadline: May 1, 2013

Notification: June 1, 2013

Grant term: September 1, 2013 - August 31, 2016

academic museum websites

Is there a university/college museum website that you particularly admire? A website that is visually interesting, informative, and easy to navigate?

We are looking at our website and considering ways to improve its communicative function as well as design. But we are a relatively small department within the university and we need to work with the structure/templates and overall brand established by the university's communications department. We also don't have the staff and budget to create and maintain a site separate from the university's content management system. So we have some constraints but there's also some flexibility that we probably haven't fully explored. We're hoping bring to the table some examples of other academic museum websites that demonstrate creativity and elegant design but also are complimentary to the parent organizations.

If you know of any academic museum websites that you like (perhaps your own?), please recommend them. Thanks much, Elizabeth

We are looking at our website and considering ways to improve its communicative function as well as design. But we are a relatively small department within the university and we need to work with the structure/templates and overall brand established by the university's communications department. We also don't have the staff and budget to create and maintain a site separate from the university's content management system. So we have some constraints but there's also some flexibility that we probably haven't fully explored. We're hoping bring to the table some examples of other academic museum websites that demonstrate creativity and elegant design but also are complimentary to the parent organizations.

If you know of any academic museum websites that you like (perhaps your own?), please recommend them. Thanks much, Elizabeth

Care of Baskets online course begins May 6

Brad Bredehoft <brad@...>
 

MS 225: Care of Baskets
Instructor: Sherry Doyal
Dates: May 6 - June 14, 2013
Location: online at www.museumclasses.org

Description:
Baskets are an important part of nearly every world culture. Caring for baskets requires an understanding of why and how they deteriorate. Care of Baskets provides a simplified explanation of the chemistry and structure of basketry materials. Starting with an overview of the history and function of baskets and how they are made, Care of Baskets will cover guidelines for handling, labeling, exhibiting and storing baskets, including condition assessments and an introduction to integrated pest management. An overview of treatments used on baskets and how appropriate they are for the long-term preservation of the basket will help students make care decisions when consulting with conservators.

Logistics:
Participants in Care of Baskets work through sections on their own. Materials and resources include online literature, slide lectures and dialog between students and the instructor through online forums.

Care of Baskets runs six weeks. To learn more about the course, go to http://www.collectioncare.org/tas/tas.html If you have trouble please contact Helen Alten at helen@...

The Instructor:
Sherry Doyal is head of the organic artefacts conservation section at the British Museum. She now specializes in conservation of botanic materials. Sherry has previous experience of private practice conservation serving regional historic houses, scientific botany collections (herbaria) and small museums. Her employment history also includes large museums (Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY and Victoria and Albert Museum, London). Sherry received a conservation and restoration studies certificate with distinction from Lincoln College of Art in 1980 and a post graduate certificate in upholstery conservation from the Textile Conservation Centre, Hampton Court Palace in 1984. Sherry received a further and adult education teachers� certificate from Exeter College in 1998 and a diploma in design and craft (constructed textiles) in the context of basketry from City Literacy College, London in 2008. In her spare time she is a maker and exhibitor of contemporary basketry works.

Curatorial description

Don Desmett
 

I am going to propose that the curator for the arts center here at Western Michigan University have faculty status. Responsibilities would be to curate X number of exhibitions for the program, but also be in charge of an artist in residence program that is directly tied to new curricula proposals throughout the School of Art.

Does anyone have a similar description/appointment in place so I am not reinventing the wheel?
Work load would be a factor, but I think tying the exhibitions/visiting artists/scholar programs directly to our studio and art history programs would open up a great deal of possibilities.

I am already collaborating with the University of Massachusetts/Amherst - New York Professional Outreach Program (NYPOP) which connects students to artists/galleries/curators/writers in NY, and hope this would be a part of bringing those connections back to Michigan and connecting directly with exhibitions/artists in residence, etc.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
