MassMu Displays P.T. Barnum Artifacts from its Permanent Collection

With the 2017 closing of the Ringling Brothers, Barnum, and Bailey Circus and the success of the Hollywood musical, The Greatest Showman, P.T. Barnum has returned in spirit to the limelight in America.
 
In response, the Massillon Museum has created a small display of artifacts related to Barnum’s circus, his American Museum, and his performers—including Mr. and Mrs. Tom Thumb and singer Jenny Lind. The jewel of the exhibit is Barnum’s gold-tipped walking stick. Along with photographs, programs, advertising, and memorabilia in the exhibit, the walking stick was donated in 1995 to the Massillon Museum by Dr. Robert Immel along with his hand-carved miniature circus that is an iconic part of the Massillon Museum.  
 
“With the current popularity of the circus as seen in the film, The Greatest Showman, MassMu wants to encourage patrons to have a last look at the current circus gallery before renovation of the second floor begins,” says the Museum’s executive director Alexandra Nicholis Coon.
 
The Immel Circus, which is usually on view as part of a visit to the Museum, will be temporarily closed beginning January 22 during construction in that part of the building during the expansion project. Until then, visitors can see the 2,620-piece circus diorama and the circus posters, photographs, and costumes that surround it in the Immel Circus Gallery.  The new Barnum exhibit, P.T. Barnum: The World’s Greatest Showman, can also be seen until that date.
 
By mid-January, many circus images will be added to the Museum’s virtual galleries, so visitors will be able to view permanent collection artifacts while the circus gallery is closed.  Visit http://www.massillonmuseum.org/immel-circus. 
 
The Barnum exhibit, the Immel Circus, Paul Brown: Innovator, and the Stark County Artists Exhibition may be seen during regular hours Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. “Although the lobby is in construction disarray, the exhibits are accessible at this time,” says Margy Vogt, public relations coordinator.  “Everyone is still welcome to visit.”
 
About P.T. Barnum
Phineas Taylor Barnum (1810–1891) acquired and expanded the American Museum in New York City in 1842. In 1870, the marketing genius invested in a circus venture, casting his friends and many performers from his museum. The following year, P.T. Barnum’s Grand Traveling Museum, Menagerie, Caravan, and Circus opened in Brooklyn, the forerunner to what would become Barnum and Bailey Greatest Show on Earth. By the end of its run, the Ringling Brothers, Barnum, and Bailey Circus had entertained the world for 146 years.
 
About the Massillon Museum
The circus gallery closing will facilitate construction of a doorway to the new Studio M space directly east of the gallery on the second floor of one of the Museum’s new buildings. The expansion project—funded by the State of Ohio, foundations, businesses, organizations, and individuals—will enhance the Museum’s ability to preserve and exhibit art and history, add opportunities to be the cultural hub of the community, and create space for the new Paul Brown Museum.

MassMu Student Fantasy Art Poster Contest

As part of its eleventh-annual NEA Big Read, the Massillon Museum has organized a fantasy art poster contest for high school and middle school students. The competition will accent the 2018 book selection, A Wizard of Earthsea, a young adult fantasy novel written by the American author Ursula K. Le Guin.
Posters, which must reflect the original design and creation of the student, should engage a fantasy theme, in the spirit of A Wizard of Earthsea, but they need not be directly linked to the book itself.
Students must submit posters individually—no team posters are permitted. Each entrant must be in high school or middle school and may submit only one poster.
The posters can be no larger than 11” x 17”. They may be designed in color or in black and white. Any weight of paper is allowed, but artwork must be matted. Computer graphics are permitted, as long as they are original designs of the student.
Students may submit their own works to the Massillon Museum; parents or teachers may submit works on behalf of students. Posters must be received by the Massillon Museum by 5:00 p.m., March 9, 2018, in person or via mail.
Detailed guidelines and the required entry form can be found on the Museum’s website:  massillonmuseum.org/the-big-read.
All submitted posters will be displayed from April 7 through May 6, 2018, during the NEA Big Read. The winning poster entrant and his/her art teacher will enjoy a private lunch at the Massillon Museum with award-winning illustrator Charles Vess, whose artwork is featured in the anniversary edition of A Wizard of Earthsea. The winner will also receive a matted print signed by Charles Vess.

Massillon Museum Stark County Artists Exhibition Opening

The Massillon Museum will celebrate the opening of the annual Stark County Artists Exhibition on Sunday, December 3, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. with a reception for the artists in the main gallery. Award winners will be announced at 4:00 that afternoon.  The party is free and open to everyone.
The Stark County Artists Exhibition has been held at the Museum since 1934, beginning as a statewide juried exhibit of fine arts and crafts. By the 1980s, it was refocused to exhibit work by artists living and working in Stark County. To keep the show fresh, artwork submitted for consideration must have been created within the last two years.
All media were considered by the independent jurors: Elizabeth Carney—Assistant Curator, Akron Art Museum; Steven Mastroianni—Photographer, Cleveland; and Susan Yingling—Artist, Retired Art Teacher, Akron Public Schools. They selected work to be included as well as the awards. The look of the exhibition is different from year to year because of the diversity of the artwork entered and the vision of the jurors, who vary every year.
A total of 77 artists submitted 189 drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, and more.  From those, the jurors chose 55 pieces of artwork by 40 individuals.
Stark Countians whose artwork will be exhibited are: Mandy Altimus Stahl, Michael Barath, William Barron, Emily Bartolone, William Bogdan, Heather Bullach, Rosemary Burkhart, Peter Castillo, Frank Dale, David Dingwell, Bree Ehret, Susan Eitelman, Pamela Glover Wadsworth, Karen Hemsley, Judith Huber, Bruce Humbert, Gail Keener, Judith Krew, Ted Lawson, Khrysso LeFey, Bob Maurer, Clare Murray Adams, Lee Novotny, Jesse Nutter, Mitzi Phillips, Scot Phillips, Mark Pitocco, Michael Reynolds, Patricia Ripple, Priscilla Roggenkamp, Russell Hench, Allison Smith, Alexander Strader, Brien Strancar, Michele Tokos, Stephen Tornero, Tom Wachunas, Michael Weiss, Isabel Zaldivar, and Anna Zotta.
“The Stark County Artists Exhibition is one of my favorite Massillon Museum traditions,” said the exhibition’s coordinator Heather Bullach. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to showcase fresh work for established and aspiring artists alike. Each year’s show offers plenty of familiarity, as some artists return year after year, but a completely different group of jurors ensures a unique and diverse selection. No two shows are alike, but there is always something for everyone!”
In addition to viewing the Stark County Artists Exhibition on December 3, visitors can attend the opening of the Studio M exhibition, Image to Image: Photography by Walsh University Photojournalism Students in the Museum’s lower level. The second-floor galleries will be open for viewing Stark County in the Great War, Paul Brown: Innovator, and The Immel Circus.
The Stark County Artists Exhibition, which will continue through January 31, 2018, may be seen during regular Museum hours Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Walsh University Digital Photojournalism Students to Be Featured in MassMu Studio M

Eleven students enrolled in Walsh University digital photojournalism classes have examined the work of renowned photojournalists from the perspectives of artistic style, technique, and history. Their project will culminate when they collaborate with the Massillon Museum to host the eleventh annual Image to Image exhibition in the Museum’s Studio M.  
 
When the exhibition opens on Sunday, December 3, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., the public is invited to meet the photographers, view their work, and enjoy refreshments in the Fred F. Silk Community Room of the Massillon Museum. The party is free and open to all; no reservations are necessary.
 
Image to Image:  A Comparative Study of Past and Present Photojournalists’ Images, Styles, and Shooting Techniques will feature the work of students in Professor Lee Horrisberger’s digital photography class. It will illustrate that the power of the image is not in the camera, but in the hands of the photographer.
 
First-time students Donal Baker, Jonah Carter, Sydney Colucy, Sara Dahler, Melissa Johnson, Tyson Lautanen, Jacob Linkous, Chloe Miller, Joseph Paiva, Mariana Salinas, and Ellen Stair will be featured.
 
Students have used cameras, computers, and photographic equipment from Walsh’s Communication Department to imitate the photography style, lighting, and content of photojournalists of their choosing. Students have learned the mechanical side of producing a photograph, and now understand that it is equally important that a photograph be composed artistically to make an impact on its audience. 
 
“The goal of the project is to demonstrate the impact that style and technique have on artistic content, and also to immerse the students in the historical and social context of the photojournalists’ work,” Horrisberger said. “Students have learned that news is visual, and that story telling through images can have an impact on society. By taking part in this project, these students have a better understanding of how photography, specifically photojournalism, works within the larger social tapestry.”
 
Each student’s work will be printed, matted, and hung along with his or her selected photojournalist’s work. Each piece will contain bibliographic notes and detail how the student’s work was created. Students will be involved in the marketing of the event and will be on hand during the exhibition opening to receive firsthand feedback on their work.
 
Emily Vigil, Studio M coordinator, will explain the importance of presentation by working with the professor, the students, and their finished photographs that will be hung in the Museum. Students will witness how the exhibition of artistic work, in this case photojournalism, can serve as a social, educational, and entertainment community resource.
  
The Studio M show may be seen through December 31, during regular Museum hours, Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., except when the Silk Room has been reserved for private functions. A call to the Museum office can confirm that the exhibit is available for viewing—330-833-4061.
 
Studio M enhances the collaboration between the Museum and the community by showcasing the artistic talents of local, regional, and national artists. Brochures containing guidelines and an application are available by contacting the Massillon Museum at 330-833-4061 or www.massillonmuseum.org.
 
The Walsh opening in Studio M is concurrent with the opening of the Stark County Artists Exhibition in the Museum’s main gallery, which is also free and open to everyone.

The Artwork of Nelly Toll Goes International

Imagining a Better World: The Artwork of Nelly Toll, an exhibition originated by the Massillon Museum, has made its international debut. On September 28, 2017, the exhibit opened at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; it will continue through March 11, 2018. As a Jewish child in hiding in Poland during World War II, young Nelly created cheerful, colorful watercolor images of what the artist wished her world would be. 
 
As a child, Toll lived with her mother in a room in the home of a Catholic family, and hid in a “secret window,” standing mutely on the sill of a window bricked-up from the outside when required to hide. As described by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the life of Toll and children like her “was a life in shadows, where a careless remark, a denunciation, or the murmurings of inquisitive neighbors could lead to discovery and death.” 
 
Given a watercolor set by her mother, she painted small pictures of what she imagined a normal life would resemble. The images are filled with friends playing outside, pretty new dresses, parties, dinners, pets, and family—things that young artist could not have in hiding. In stark contrast to the imaginary world of her paintings, Toll also kept a diary that chronicled a young child’s experience of life in occupied Poland. Later, she was able to escape to the United States with her mother, and as an adult wrote an award-winning book about her experience, Behind the Secret Window (1993), based on her childhood diary. 
 
Dr. Toll believes strongly in emphasizing the positive values she took away from her experience to triumph over adversity. She visits middle schools, high schools, higher education institutions and community centers across the country to share her story, making contemporary connections between the Holocaust and the dangers of bullying. 
 
Dr. Toll’s watercolors are exhibited at the United States Holocaust Memorial in Washington, D.C. and reside also in the collections of the Illinois Holocaust Education Center and Museum and Yad Vashem Museum in Israel.
 
Imagining a Better World, guest curated by Craig Joseph, was first exhibited at the Massillon Museum in 2014. Nelly Toll has worked with the Massillon Museum since 2007, when she first showed a selection of her artwork in connection with The Big Read.  The traveling exhibition,which garnered the Ohio Museums Association’s Best Exhibition award, and is supported by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, has previously been installed in Cherry Hill, New Jersey; Reading, Pennsylvania; Hanover, Pennsylvania; Troy, Ohio; Dennison, Ohio; and San Antonio, Texas. It will open at the Decorative Arts Center in Lancaster, Ohio, in October 2018.

Blind Spot Comes to the CSO

The Canton Symphony Orchestra kicks off its ConverZations series with a special event thanks to a generous partnership with the Massillon Museum.  Join us on September 19th, 2017 at 6:15pm for a fascinating new take on art installations!  ConverZations is a series of free public discussions, held at the Zimmermann Symphony Center (2331 17th Street NW), and features a variety of guest speakers who provide a pleasant and entertaining way for audience members to “get inside” the music. Sponsored by Arts in Stark, Massillon Museum, Ohio Arts Council, and Stark Community Foundation, the ConverZations Series will continue on the second Monday of every month until April 2018.

For our first ConverZations, the popular Massillon Museum exhibit, Blind Spot: A Matter of Perception, comes to the Zimmermann Symphony Center.  The original installation at the Massillon Museum consisted of ten abstract paintings adapted through several different media to help museum attendees experience the artworks through multiple senses.  Braille, large-type labels, and small scale aluminum tactile models were created to help patrons with blindness or low vision experience the art, as well as give sighted patrons new ways to experience visual art.  Three of the paintings were selected by three members of the Cleveland Institute of Music’s Composer Fellowship program who wrote musical compositions representing the artworks.  These compositions were performed at the opening of the exhibit, and will be performed again at our event on September 19th.

The three paintings picked by composers from the Cleveland Institute of Music will travel to the Zimmermann Symphony Center and stay in The Hoover Gallery from September 19ththrough October 13th.  For opening night on September 19th, there will be a cocktail hour starting at 6:15pm, with light hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and a chance to view the paintings.  The evening continues with a panel discussion at 7pm, along with performances of the three musical compositions by Canton Symphony Orchestra musicians.  The art exhibit will be open to the public for viewing during theCSO administrative offices business hours, 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.

For more information on upcoming ConverZations lectures and other events run by the Canton Symphony Orchestra, visit www.cantonsymphony.org/converzations.

Founded in 1937, the Canton Symphony Orchestra is celebrating our 80th anniversary and is a fully professional ensemble and organization dedicated to performing concerts that enrich, educate and entertain residents of Stark County and beyond. The orchestra performs classical, holiday, casual, and a variety of educational programs in Umstattd Performing Arts Hall, adjacent to the Zimmermann Symphony Center at 2323 17th Street NW, Canton, Ohio, as well as other venues in Stark County.
