We all cherish the freedoms guaranteed to us in the American Constitution and, more specifically, in the Bill of Rights.  Classes will focus on the text of the First, Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments and the difficulties and controversies defining some of these freedoms today.  Freedom of speech and the press: what are the limits to this freedom and under what circumstances is censorship justified?  Freedom of religion: how can we reconcile the basic right to the free exercise with the anti-establishment clause?  The right to bear arms: what does the Second Amendment actually say and how do the NRA and others interpret it?  The right against unreasonable searches and seizures: how do social media, browsing history, GPS tracking, and electronic payment systems impact the right against government intrusions?  The right to a fair trial: do the judicial due process protections afforded by the Fifth Amendment still work today?  In the spirit of the Bill of Rights, class discussions will be open and free in the hope of understanding differing interpretations.  

Schedule : Weekly - Fri 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM; 5 sessions; starting 3/31/2017, ending 5/5/2017 ; Class Skip Dates : (No class on 4/14/2017)

Jasper Cropsey, 1823-1900, was a member of the Hudson River School and one one of America's finest nineteenth-century landscape artists.  His home, Ever Rest, located in Hastings-on-the-Hudson is included on the National Register of Historic Places in New York.  Also on the property is the Gallery of Art, which houses a permanent collection of Cropsey's works.  Our visit will consist of a guided tour of Ever Rest and the permanant collection in the Gallery of Art.  Currently on exhibit, until June 6, is Jasper Francis Cropsey - Reminiscenes of a Life.  The show highlights works that have not been publically displayed, including works that are not often attributed to Cropsey such as small still life paintings and scenes of New York City.  Students can remain on site after the guided tours to view this exhibit on their own.

From an early age, Queen Victoria’s artistic talents showed royal promise and she continued to enjoy painting in watercolor throughout her long reign.  This lecture follows her artistic progress and the many charming subjects she painted, including her royal family and the scenery of the Scottish Highlands.  She was also an enthusiastic patron of important Victorian artists and photographers whose works are fascinating records of royal taste.  We will look at the works and backgrounds of three of those favored artists: one who gave art lessons to the Queen and Prince Albert and who painted many images of her royal residences; W.P. Frith who commemorated royal celebrations and whose painterly advice much impressed Prince Albert; and Sir Edwin Landseer, renowned for his portrayals of royal pets as well as the famous image of Queen Victoria on her pony at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, which was exhibited in 1867.  The painting showed her faithful Scottish servant John Brown in such a close proximity to the monarch that it shocked the rigid royal protocols and etiquette of Victoria’s court and continues to intrigue us today.

French photographer Joséphine Douet envisions American painter Andrew Wyeth’s world in this exhibit of Douet’s photographs.  Inspired by the same rural Pennsylvania landscapes and people that were the subject of Wyeth’s artwork, Douet traveled to Wyeth’s hometown of Chadds Ford, to photograph scenes for this project.  Douet has selected twelve of the painter's drawings and watercolors to pair with her photographs in the Wyeth Wonderland series.  Some of these comparisons are direct, as in a portrait of the same sitter, years later.  With others, she was drawn to an aesthetic synergy she felt when looking at Wyeth’s and her images together.  She spoke to some of the people who had known Wyeth, as she sought the secret of his sensibility:  Join us for a tour of this special exhibit as well as the museum’s permanent collection.
