Examining Southern Hemisphere Humpback Whale Migratory Routes from Foraging to Breeding Grounds External Event Page
Sausalito, California
Southern hemisphere humpback whale populations spend a large portion of the year breeding in tropical waters and migrating between this region and their summer feeding grounds in the Antarctic. They travel great distances during their seasonal migration, the farthest migration of any mammal, with distances up to 11,706 miles recorded. Despite this impressive feat, minimal information is known about their migratory journeys. A team of researchers has tagged numerous humpback whales with ARGOS satellite tags in the Antarctic feeding grounds over the past several years and have collected data on complete tracks from Antarctica to the western coast of South America. This is the first study to examine South Pacific humpback whale migratory routes from foraging to breeding grounds, and one of the few to have a workable sample size. Michelle will share how this information will be used to create a comprehensive overview of migratory behaviors and characteristics of these magnificent marine mammals. ///// American Cetacean Society - SF Bay Chapter. Admission is free. Registration is recommended as we expect a high level of interest! We'll reserve seats for Eventbrite registrants. Donations are encouraged, $10 general, $5 students. Donations support education programs that build appreciation for whales, dolphins, and porpoises, and research grants which help the next generation of marine scientists deepen understanding of threats to cetaceans and find solutions to protect and conserve them. ///// ABOUT MICHELLE MODEST: Michelle Modest originally hails from State College, Pennsylvania. She received her BA from Yale University, and then went on Imperial College London to complete an MSc in Conservation Science. At Imperial, she worked with Brandon Southall to complete her thesis titled Anthropogenic noise pollution: Understanding the effects of mid-frequency active sonar on Risso's dolphin behavior. She is now a PhD student in Ari Friedlaender's lab at UC Santa Cruz, and is very excited to spend the next 5 years invest

Seizing the Moment: The Evolution in Action Photography External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
The Evolution of Action Photography will feature never before seen images from The Horace Havemeyer III Collection along with work by contemporary photographers, showing the evolution of marine photography from a documentary approach to more of an artistic perspective. The Havemeyer Collection includes gelatin silver prints by early 20th-century master marine photographers Edwin Levick and Morris Rosenfeld, as well as work by others. ///// Levick and Rosenfeld pushed the limits of the photographic medium, capturing exciting, point-of-view images over a nine-year span. Levick’s work often placed the viewer squarely on deck, seemingly as part of the action, while Rosenfeld worked for Levick before he opened his own studio in 1910. ///// This one of a kind maritime collection was donated to The Mariners’ Museum in 2015 as a significant gift in memory of Horace Havemeyer III, a native of New York and an avid sailor. Havemeyer’s grandfather purchased these photographs from Levick; and over the years, they were passed down to his son and then grandson, Horace III, who founded Metropolis magazine in 1981. He served as its president until his death in 2014. His wife, Eugenie C. Havemeyer, is now at the helm of this publication, which is considered the vanguard of architecture and design today.

Emanation 2019 is on display through December 31, 2019 in the Museum of American Glass at WheatonArts! Emanation 2019 is the third exhibition of contemporary art featuring new works developed and created by artists invited to utilize the resources and facilities at WheatonArts for experiment based exploration. The results are displayed with an emphasis on each artist's creative process. "The artists in this iteration of Emanation have not previously worked in glass, but are creative thinkers and problem solvers, who have embraced the opportunity to experiment in a new medium," notes Julie Courtney, curator of Emanation 2019. The artists she brought to the project each have a unique perspective and aesthetic on the integration of glass into their works, creating powerful visuals (and even sounds) relating to invisible labor, prison incarceration rates, beauty in destruction, and "cartoon violence," just to name a few. Artists participating in the exhibit are Jesse Krimes, Tristin Lowe, Martha McDonald and Laura Baird, Karyn Olivier, Richard Torchia, Allan Wexler, and Jo Yarrington. Open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is included with general admission to WheatonArts.

SHEILA HICKS - Campo Abierto (Open Field) External Event Page
Miami Beach, Florida
Grouping works of art from various periods, Campo Abierto (Open Field) explores the formal, social and environmental aspects of landscape that have been present, yet rarely examined, throughout Sheila Hicks’ expansive career. Prompting contemplations on collaboration, dialogue and discussion, the exhibition is rooted in the reconfiguration of Escalade Beyond Chromatic Lands (2016-2017), the artist’s vast installation produced for the Arsenale at the Venice Biennale in 2017. The exhibition brings together several large-format installations, as well as more intimately-scaled works, that utilize and transform the architecture of The Bass’ upstairs galleries. The selection of works in Campo Abierto (Open Field) foreground the museum’s context in South Florida, a multilingual locus traversed by complex immigration waves and patterns, alongside environmental concerns.

AAM 2019 Annual Meeting and Museum Expo External Event Page
New Orleans, Louisiana
Venue: New Orleans Marriott & Convention Center
oday’s museums are re-examining their role and connection to communities in new ways. There is a growing understanding that our institutions’ long-term viability and financial sustainability is inextricably linked to our ability to be relevant, magnetic, and inclusive. Digital technologies are refining and improving traditional functions such as ticketing, marketing, and fundraising – in addition to driving personalized experiences and new abilities for museums to connect with increasingly tech-savvy audiences. Innovative partnerships with for-profit companies and within mutually aligned sectors like health and education may provide museums access to the financial and technical capacity to help them scale their work. At the 2019 AAM Meeting and MuseumExpo in New Orleans, we will explore how museums are meeting these challenges head-on. We will learn from each other’s trials and errors and connect with colleagues who can help us grow and tackle our own challenges. //// Also, Exhibit at MuseumExpo is the largest gathering of museum professionals. Connect with high-level decision-makers such as directors, curators, financial officers, exhibit design professionals, educators and registrars. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet face-to-face with qualified buyers to showcase your new and innovative products and services to more than 5,000 museum professionals seeking cost- and time-saving solutions for the museum field.

Other mills to see are: Lee and Gordon's Mill, rebuilt after the Civil War; and Berry College Mill, built in 1930 by Henry Ford. ///// Join us for a conference that includes miller training, a banquet, and bus tours of interesting mills in the place the Cherokee called The Enchanted Land.

Adamstown, Maryland
Venue: Claggett Center
The Country School Association of America will hold its 2019 annual conference in Maryland—just outside our Nation's Capital—providing an opportunity to focus on country schools from a national perspective. These modest, decidedly local educational institutions that dotted the countryside were, of course, countrywide—with many similarities but also having important local, state and regional differences. We'll consider this local/national juxtaposition—still relevant today—at our June 2019 gathering.
