Exhibition – Bandits & Heroes, Poets & Saints: Popular Art of the Northeast of Brazil @ Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery at SUNY Geneseo
Sep 28 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Exhibition Dates: September 5 – October 19, 2018
• Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 5, 5-7 PM
• Curator’s Talk at 5:45 PM

Bandits & Heroes, Poets & Saints explores how the ancient cultures of Africa blended with indigenous and colonial Portuguese traditions to form the vibrant and complex cultural mosaic of modern Brazil. Engaging photographs and works of popular art, including sculptures, paintings, prints, religious objects, toys, and booklets of poetry will draw visitors into the complex and vibrant culture of the Northeast of Brazil and introduce the festivals, heroes, and spiritual traditions that give shape and meaning to the daily lives of the Nordestinos, common people of Brazil’s Northeast. The exhibition explores how diverse traditions come together in the region and uses work by historical and contemporary artists to illuminate a fascinating history that reaches into modern Brazil.

Bandits & Heroes, Poets & Saints: Popular Art of the Northeast of Brazil was curated by Marion E. Jackson, Ph.D. and Barbara Cervenka, O.P., Curators, Con/Vida–Popular Arts of the Americas, and organized by Con/Vida–Popular Arts of the Americas and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, Detroit, MI, in partnership with NEH on the Road/Mid-America Arts Alliance, Kansas City, MO.

Exhibitions are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery.

MARS Club Launch Event @ National Warplane Museum
Sep 29 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

MARS Rocketry is a family friendly rocketry group that flies at the National Warplane Museum airfield, just minutes from Rochester and only an hour from Buffalo, in Geneseo, NY. MARS is NAR’s oldest continually active section, and the largest rocketry club in New York state. Our launches host club members and guests flying rockets ranging in size from 1/4″A” powered Estes rockets to “N” powered monsters. MARS is a National Association of Rocketry (NAR) sanctioned club and all MARS launch activities are governed by the NAR safety code.

Spectators are welcome and there is NO CHARGE for spectators. The Geneseo field is easy to find and is just a few miles from I-390. Bring the kids and plan to spend at least a few hours. Animal Motor Works and Performance Hobbies will be in attendance at our launches- maybe you can re-kindle a past interest in rocketry! Buy a kit and come back to fly it at our next launch.
