#ALLinFun (Family Focused), #INbudget ($0-$10), Museum Exhibitions

Inspired by author Amy Stewart’s best-selling book Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and other Botanical Atrocities, this fun-filled, family-friendly traveling exhibit gives visitors a safe, hands-on experience with some of the world’s most diabolical botanicals. Thought-provoking and educational, Wicked Plants showcases plants associated with a myriad of health effects, including pain, addiction, obesity, allergies, cognitive impairment and even death!

Two- and three-dimensional interactives fill a Victorian-era ramshackle home, where visitors travel from room to room and learn about various poisonous plants that may be lurking in their homes and backyards. History, medicine, science, legend and lore are brought together to present a treasure trove of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm and enlighten.

Theater

This classic Rogers and Hammerstein musical,nset on an island during the 2nd World War, combines multiple story lines with one of the most beloved scores in Broadway history. This enduring tale of an American nurse forced to choose between her own prejudice and her love of a French plantation owner is balanced by the antics of a group of seabees who will stop at nothing to make a buck. A perfect blend of romance and humor with such classic songs as “Some Enchanted Evening,” Younger Than Springtime,” and “There Is Nothing Like a Dame.” South Pacific was the recipient of 10 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for drama.

Hamilton and Burr: Who Wrote Their Stories?

Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library

Aug

Thu
History, Museum Exhibitions
July 11, 2019–January 5, 2020, Center Gallery
 

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and examines how Alexander Hamilton’s and Burr’s legacies were shaped by other Founding Fathers, a wife, a daughter, historical documents, and yes, even an enormously successful, modern-day musical.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.
