Opening Reception

Sculptor Gail Whitsitt-Lynch has created "BitterSweet" from the wood of a stately elm that stood in the garden at the Nightingale-Brown house from 1920 to 2014. Although the tree is gone, its life continues in this dynamic carving. The exhibit explores the evolution of material through the artist's process to the finished sculpture, BitterSweet, and includes a graphic history of the life cycle of this singular tree.

The Mobile Museum of American Artifacts

The Mobile Museum of American Artifacts (MMoAA) is a touring museum of personal objects and their histories. Housed in a small vintage trailer, MMoAA travels from town to town, conducting an “archeology of the present” that uncovers objects of significant (and insignificant) connection to everyday American life. MMoAA will be making its debut visit to Providence May 11-16th. Mark your calendars and find your objects!

Lecture

Storytelling through Objects & the Mobile Museum of American Artifacts

Thursday, May 14, 2015
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Nightingale-Brown House

MMoAA Founder Laurelin Kruse discusses the museum as a mode of storytelling, and how going beyond the global and the local, into the deeply personal, can reveal shared meaning in our everyday lives. For more information visit www.theMMoAA.org. In addition to this lunch time talk, the MMOAA will be in Providence all week, culminating in an appearance at WaterFire, on Saturday, May 16. The residency is sponsored by the Center for Public Humanities and organized by four graduate students, Barbara Elmudesi, Kathleen Haughey, Nicole Larrondo, and Caroline Stevens.
