Inspired Design: Asian Decorative Arts and Their Adaptations

Sat, Mar. 2 '19 - Sun, Feb. 9 '20

Exhibition • MA
Historic Deerfield • 84B Old Main St, Deerfield MA 01342

Historic Deerfield, 84B Old Main St, Deerfield MA 01342, Saturday and Sunday 9:30-4:30.

Official Opening: May 3, 2019

By the 17th century, English and European merchants purchased and traded quantities of luxury goods such as lacquerwares, porcelains, and textiles from cultures centered in Southeast Asia. Emerging New England elites also acquired these tangible examples of global sophistication and economic success to decorate their homes and adorn their bodies. These imports proved so popular that they could hardly satisfy the growing desire for new textiles, clothing forms, furniture, ceramics, and other decorative arts. To meet this increasing demand, enterprising English, European, and American manufacturers competed with these global imports by producing more affordable versions of Asian design and decorative elements.

Inspired Design: Asian Decorative Arts and Their Adaptations highlights 18th- and 19th-century Asian decorative arts and their imitations, drawn from the museum’s rich collection. The exhibition explores how Western craftsmen adapted Asian decorative arts into a design vocabulary more familiar to them and their customers, and highlights New Englanders’ own quest for these imported goods.

Furniture Masterworks: Tradition and Innovation in Western Massachusetts

Tue, Jun. 18 - Sun, Dec. 1
9:30am - 4pm

Exhibition • MA
Historic Deerfield • 79 Main St, Deerfield MA 01342



Seating and case furniture made in Massachusetts before the 1840s is as varied as the craftsmen and consumers who created it. From Beacon Hill to the Berkshires, the extremes test the richness of the whole region. Yet, the great variety in the Bay State’s furniture making traditions begs the question: Why is the furniture so different statewide in each period from the 17th into the 19th centuries when so many cultural, social, economic, and political traditions appear unified? There are at least two answers to that question, as we test why things look as they do. The first rests with the tribal power of family networks with its control of mores and standards, capitalization of tools and labor, and accepted beauty and functionality. The second lies in the natural power of the landscape in its ability to feed, sustain, transport, and protect.

The furniture-making traditions in Western Massachusetts are the perfect laboratory for exploring the impact of family and landscape on the appearance of manmade goods. While numerous mercantile ties were built by ambitious Connecticut Valley families in Boston, Newport, New York City, and later the China Trade, their extensive cousinage created a kind of corporate whole that improved business and forged identity. At the same time, the north-south flow of the Connecticut River—New England’s “great river”—was a far more powerful current than any east-west political or cultural ties to Boston.

Historic Deerfield’s exhibition opened on September 28, 2013 in the Wright House as a semi-permanent installation, explores the impact of family and landscape on craftsmanship and consumerism through 1) the famous “Hadley” chests of the late 17th century and the other early regional shop traditions that they obscured; 2) the emergence of the consumer revolution, through both local craftsmen and urban imports, on the shoulders of the Valley’s elite “river god” families who funded themselves through agricultural exports and munitions for the colonial wars; 3) the post-American Revolution rise of classicism that largely eclipsed the “river gods” with new consumers and craftsmen who manifest different standards of taste, education, and trading partners enhanced by the Connecticut River’s new canal system; and 4) the 19th-century rise in wealth from burgeoning industry and technology, largely through the metalworking trades, that created yet another wave of consumers and craftsmen anxious to express their newfound wealth in modern ways. These four chapters are deeply rooted in sense of place and together show the importance of reading cultural history through documented objects.

Furniture Masterworks: Tradition and Innovation in Western Massachusetts explores Western Massachusetts’ first 150 years of furniture-making with 58 objects drawn from Historic Deerfield’s collections that best exemplify the region’s signature contribution to American design history and emergence of national identity. The exhibition is a part of Four Centuries of Massachusetts Furniture. Four Centuries of Massachusetts Furniture is a collaborative project of Historic Deerfield and ten other institutions that features exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations and publications to celebrate the Bay State’s legacy of furniture-making.

Celebrating the Fiber Arts: The Helen Geier Flynt Textile Gallery

Tue, Jun. 18 - Sun, Dec. 1
9:30am - 4pm

Exhibition • MA
Historic Deerfield • 79 Main St, Deerfield MA 01342

The Helen Geier Flynt Textile Gallery showcases Historic Deerfield's important collection of fashion, needlework, and domestic textiles. The core of the collection was assembled through the efforts of one of the museum's founders, Helen Geier Flynt (1895-1986). Considered one of the finest collections in America, the collection contains items dating from the late 17th century through the mid-20th century.

Rotations and thematic displays every season are set against the backdrop of four main fibers that created most textiles before the 20th century; silk, wool, cotton, and linen. Together with the museum’s historic houses, the gallery displays a portion of the roughly 8,000 items in the fashion, needlework, and domestic textile collection. The gallery helps visitors consider the aesthetic and practical choices made and used by people in Deerfield, the Connecticut River Valley, New England, England, and Europe.

Washington and Marshall: Federalist Forged in Battle Exhibit

Fri, Aug. 30 - Sun, Dec. 29
10am - 5pm

Exhibition • VA
The John Marshall House • 818 E Marshall St, Richmond VA 23219

In his autobiography, John Marshall shares that the most formative experiences of his life came not in court but in battle. That was where he served under George Washington, “the greatest Man on earth,” whose example would inspire and guide him for the rest of his life. The conditions they encountered at Valley Forge and the lack of strong leadership from the Continental Congress are thought to be leading influences in Marshall’s belief in the need for a strong and capable national government.

As John Marshall’s legal career grew, Washington pushed the young lawyer into political appointments, often to his chagrin. The first President recognized the young federalist as a good judge of character, often requesting his opinions of potential political appointees. In 1799, after his death, it was Marshall who read Washington’s eulogy on the floor of the House, as “first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his fellow citizens.”

The newest exhibit in the John Marshall House‘s Justice Gallery features a newly conserved letter from Washington to Marshall, Marshall’s own First Edition copy of “The Life of Washington” which he authored and other objects typically not on display.

Hamilton and Burr: Who Wrote Their Stories?

Mon, Sep. 2 '19 - Sun, Jan. 5 '20

Exhibition • DE
Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library • 5101 Kennett Pike, Wilmington DE 19735

The hit Broadway musical Hamilton sparked renewed interest in the Founding Father and his relationship with Aaron Burr, whom he infamously dueled with on July 11, 1804. Opening on the 215th anniversary of the duel, our exhibit picks up where Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical left off and examines how Alexander Hamilton’s and Burr’s legacies were shaped by other Founding Fathers, a wife, a daughter, historical documents, and yes, even an enormously successful, modern-day musical.

The continuously interwoven fates and legacies of these two seemingly divisive figures, provides an exciting opportunity to explore what stories get written, which get remembered, and why.

Our story begins in the immediate aftermath of the shots in Weehawken, New Jersey, with original correspondence between Burr and Dr. David Hosack regarding Hamilton’s condition. An up-close look at Dr. Hosack, Rev. Benjamin Moore, and the events following the duel will begin to complicate our perceptions of Burr.

The exhibit then dives into the printed material and imagery surrounding these two figures to consider the ways in which Burr’s daughter, Theodosia Burr Alston, and Hamilton’s widow, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, helped shape the print culture to craft legacies of both men.

Setting the scene is an 18th-century velvet coat, similar to the one that inspired Miranda’s vision for the musical—which serves as a reminder that historical narratives can always be re-explored, reconsidered, and rewritten.

On one dark and stormy evening in October, as sailors were readying their berths for the night, the Haunted Ship was severed from its mooring. Lurching out into the rain-soaked darkness, the massive merchant ship was quickly lost to view, never to be seen or heard from again. Since that time, one night every October, the lost sailors stumble through the mist, trying to finally make their way back home — cursed to wander, never to find what has now become the Lost City.

Meet some lost sailors, go trick-or-treating, play games, and enjoy a story. This Halloween event will delight you!
