MUSKEGON: Edward S. Curtis: The North American Indian Exhibit

May 11, 2017 12:00 am - Sep 10, 2017 12:00 am

This exhibition of national significance celebrates the artistic genius and lasting cultural legacy of Edward Curtis, an early-1900's photographer who sacrificed everything for his art, only to die in obscurity. Curtis’s portraits of Native Americans and their landscapes, lifestyles, and rituals have become iconic over the past century, and not without controversy. For what may be the first time, the entire collection of 723 original photoengraves from his North American Indian portfolio will be on display. Curtis undertook a 30-year desperate quest to create a historical record of what he believed to be a “vanishing race,” photographing Native Americans and documenting the rich and varied cultures of over 80 different tribes. Most of these tribes still survive today, despite half millennia of ordeals and obstacles. A series of special programs will accompany the exhibition.

SAUGATUCK: "Cold War, Hot Towns" Museum Exhibit

Jun 19, 2017 12:00 am - Sep 04, 2017 12:00 am

Prior to World War II, the villages had a remarkably good relationship with visitors, but in the post-war years this cozy relationship was disrupted amid a rapidly changing world. New cars, superhighways, and plenty of cash drew the pre-war tourist clientele to more exotic destinations, leaving the towns ripe for invasion by wild youth in fast cars and motorcycle gangs who arrived on summer weekends by the thousands. Some were hippies, most were not. Some were locals, most were not. The streets were clogged with cars parading up and down. Ruffians zoomed through town on loud motorcycles. Bars were plentiful - from classy to trashy - and the live jazz and rock music was the best in Michigan.
