The Zimmerli Art Museum Presents PICTURING WAR: SELECTIONS FROM THE ZIMMERLI ART MUSEUM COLLECTION, Thru 7/5The Zimmerli Art Museum Presents PICTURING WAR: SELECTIONS FROM THE ZIMMERLI ART MUSEUM COLLECTION, Thru 7/5
by BWW News Desk - Mar 13, 2015

While the topic of war inundates the media daily, scenes from the battlefields flash across multiple (and increasingly smaller) screens so quickly that viewers often do not have time to consider the true impact of seemingly never-ending conflicts. Picturing War: Selections from the Zimmerli Art Museum Collection, on view through July 5, provides visitors the opportunity to reflect on specific battles and how they factor into broader themes. With nearly 130 prints, paintings, photographs, and sculptures by more than 50 artists, the emphasis is on the daily lives of soldiers and civilians: their moments of turmoil, but also their compassion and determination. These artistic responses to the great civil and global wars of the modern era some created on the frontline, others through the lens of history capture the propaganda, the human reactions, and the aftermath.

by Alix Cohen - Mar 12, 2015

Emerging as a pop diva in the 1970s, Maureen McGovern has been somewhere on the scene for decades. She still has a powerful, well-honed instrument, sufficient to perform confident acapella. However, It's difficult to tell from her new 54 Below show, Sing, My Sisters, Sing! Celebrating Women Singer/Songwriters, whether the artist's range has vastly diminished or arrangements and rhythms, often unsympathetic to original tunes, are so similar as to make an otherwise diverse selection of songs homogeneous.
