A traveling exhibit exploring Coney Island will be on display at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center through March 16, 2020.

The exhibit, adapted from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art’s flagship exhibition “Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland, 1861–2008,” brings to life the excitement of Coney Island, showing visitors how its magnetic world of attractions has become a touchstone for American mass culture and popular recreation.

The exhibition investigates the rise of American leisure and traces Coney Island’s influence on amusement parks and popular culture throughout the country. Photographs, ephemera, film clips and hands-on interactives immerse visitors in the experience of Coney Island.

This exhibition was organized by Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Conn, in partnership with Mid-America Arts Alliance, Kansas City, Mo. This exhibition is made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

It is adapted from the traveling exhibition “Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland, 1861–2008” and organized by Robin Jaffee Frank, Ph.D., former Chief Curator and Krieble Curator of American Paintings and Sculpture at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. It was supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Henry Luce Foundation, and The Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Foundation for the Arts, Inc. It was adapted and toured for NEH on the Road by Mid-America Arts Alliance.

Published

on

Join Gwinnett Library for an evening with nationally renowned journalist, wine expert, and author Kevin Begos. He will discuss his travels along the original wine routes—from the Caucasus Mountains, where wine grapes were first domesticated eight thousand years ago, crossing the Mediterranean to Europe, and then America—and unearth a whole world of forgotten grapes, each with distinctive tastes and aromas.

Before he speaks, enjoy a complimentary glass of wine and tour the lovely grounds and gallery of R. Alexander Fine Art, one of the largest collections of artwork in the southeast from a versatile range of contemporary emerging to established international and American artists.

This program takes place on Friday, October 11 at 6:00 pm at R. Alexander Fine Art, 5650 Peachtree Parkway, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092. This Artober event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.
