Themes of resistance, access, change, and recovery are conveyed through new works of contemporary art, scientific endeavors aimed at resiliency efforts, and art and archival materials from the museum’s collection. Vulnerable Landscapes circumnavigates Staten Island illuminating the past to shed light on the future.

  • Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea
    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: February 24, 2024 - 5:00 pm

    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea, an exhibition about the 1956 sinking of the SS Andrea Doria and the rescue of her passengers.

     

    The exhibition will be on view from June 16, 2022 through June 2023.  There will be an opening reception on Thursday, June 16 from 6 to 8 PM.

     

    The SS Andrea Doria was the pride of postwar Italy.  A glamorous transatlantic ocean liner, she was a “floating art gallery” and a marvel of midcentury modern design.  She carried celebrities as well as Italian immigrants to new opportunities in America.

     

    On July 25, 1956, the Swedish liner MS Stockholm collided with the Andrea Doria, which was en route to New York.  The subsequent rescue was one of the most dramatic and well-documented in sea history.

     

    The Andrea Doria foundered 11 hours after the collision, and now lays on her starboard side 250 feet below the surface, about 50 miles from Nantucket.

     

    The exhibition will feature objects and artifacts from the extensive collection of diver and researcher John Moyer, Salvor in Possession of the Andrea Doria.

     

    In addition to numerous rare photographs and artwork, on display will be a lifering from the Andrea Doria, as well as china from all passenger classes, pottery, glassware, silverware, and the ship’s brass bell, recovered by Moyer and a team of divers.

     

    The exhibition was developed with the guidance of survivor, educator, author, and filmmaker Pierette Domenica Simpson, who is the gatekeeper of Andrea Doria survivor stories.  She is the author of the books Alive on the Andrea Doria!: The Greatest Sea Rescue in History and I Was Shipwrecked on the Andrea Doria! The Titanic of the 1950s

     

    Archival newsreel footage of the Andrea Doria’s maiden voyage, the collision, and the rescue of her passengers—all provided by the Sherman Grinberg Library—will be shown in the exhibition on a converted Firestone television from 1956, the year of the sinking.

     

    The exhibition also includes underwater footage shot by Bill Campbell and Billy Deans of John Moyer and a team diving to the wreck and recovering two 1,000-pound ceramic mural panels by Italian artist Guido Gambone (1909-1969).

     

    In 1993, Moyer was awarded an Admiralty Arrest in US Federal Court and named Salvor in Possession of the wreck.  In the ruling, US District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez stated Moyer’s “research and archeological documentation of his effort indicate a respect for the Andrea Doria as something more than just a commercial salvage project.”

     

    Photographs of some of the Andrea Doria survivors are featured in the exhibition, including Simpson, who, at nine years old, was immigrating to the United States with her grandparents, Pietro and Domenica Burzio, to start a new life with her mother Vivian, who had moved to Detroit eight years earlier to pursue the American Dream.

     

    Simpson wrote and produced the 2016 documentary Andrea Doria: Are the Passengers Saved?, directed by Luca Guardabascio of Rome.  To mark the 66th

  • Arc of Twenty Years
    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: February 24, 2024 - 5:00 pm

    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Arc of Twenty Years, an exhibition independently curated by photographer Michael McWeeney and painter Sarah Yuster featuring art created in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.

    The exhibition will be on view from August 12 to October 3, 2021 in the museum’s library.  There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, August 11 from 6 to 8 PM.

    Arc of Twenty Years will feature the work of Ghanim Khalil, Scott LoBaido, Diane Matyas, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Kristi Pfister, Marguerite Maria Rivas, and Sarah Yuster, all Staten Island artists.  It is a multimedia exhibition about the emotional impact and socio-political changes on Staten Island after the attacks.

    A lithograph featuring the World Trade Center by John A. Noble (1913-1983), the museum’s namesake, will also be included in the exhibition. 

    Curator Sarah Yuster states, “In the twenty years since 9/11, much of our populace has notably changed.  The way we see ourselves and each other as individuals, as Americans, took a marked trajectory spurred by one event.  The exhibition catalogues and explores major aspects of these permutations through art, photography, written word and short films.”

    Ms. Yuster continues, “Staten Island is, in many ways, a microcosm of the United States in terms of ethnicities, economics, and ideologies.  An immediate and long-term aftermath of that day rippled through the nation.  The initial agony of three thousand innocent lives lost at once, the ensuing spasms of fury and fear were felt most intensely here.  Empathy, camaraderie, selflessness and unity soared for weeks, galvanizing New Yorkers, but quickly dissipated into dissenting factions.  The art and response from all factions will be displayed.”

    Curator Michael McWeeney added, “This is not just a memorial; it’s a look at how we as a society have grown over the past 20 years.  The artists take you through their personal stories and contemplate how all of our lives have been altered by the 9/11 attacks.”

    Sarah Yuster’s painting The Firefighter, on loan from the Staten Island Children’s Museum, as well as three paintings depicting the changing skyline in Lower Manhattan from 1985 to 2014, will be on display.

    “Witness,” a poem by Staten Island’s first Poet Laureate Marguerite Maria Rivas, will be featured in the exhibition.  Rivas first wrote the poem as an email to a friend in Colorado immediately after the attacks, and it is now part of the National September 11th Museum’s online collection.

    Ann Marie McDonnell contributed two bronze sculptures, The Missing and The Faithful, which honor the lives of those lost and the loved ones who mourn them. 

    Diane Matyas contributed a multimedia work incorporating a painting with an apron and napkin, which she made to honor the lives of the Windows on the World restaurant employees.

    Scott LoBaido will exhibit a reproduction of an oil painting that he completed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks; it originally hung in Cargo Cafe in St. George, a local gathering place for the community at that time.

    Kristi Pfister will display six paintings, five of which are on ceramic tiles, and one drawing completed in the aftermath of 9/11 depicting people in various states of digging and waiting, searching for answers.

    Michael McWeeney will display a photograph of the Tribute in Light taken in March 2002, the first time those lights were lit, as well as a series of portraits with accompanying audio in the subjects’ own words about the Muslim experience after 9/11, as conceived by scholar Ghanim Khalil.

    The John A. Noble lithograph Ghost of a Bygone Ferry will be on display from the museum’s collection.  This print is his reaction to the passage of time and the decline of numerous ferry routes in New York Harbor by the 1970s; the Twin Towers, under construction, figure prominently in the background of the composition.

    For more information about the exhibition, visit noblemaritime.org/arc-of-twenty-years.

    This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and by a grant from the Lily Auchincloss Foundation.

    The Noble Maritime Collection, located in a former mariners’ dormitory at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, New York, is open from 12 until 5 PM, Thursdays through Sundays.  Admission is by donation.

    The Alice Austen House and the Noble Maritime Collection present a collection of never-before-seen nautical photographs of one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers. Living and working on Staten Island during the Gilded Age, Alice Austen (1866–1952) was one of the first women photographers to work outside the confines of a studio, employing a visionary documentary style that was ahead of its time. Picturing the Water explores Austen’s deep connection to both local and international waterways and the vessels that traverse them. The newly printed photographs, reproduced from Austen’s glass plate and film negatives, will be framed in John Noble’s signature handmade frames, reflecting on parallels between the artists’ visions.

    This exhibition was guest-curated by Alice Austen House Executive Director Victoria Munro with collections assistance by Kristine Allegretti.

  • Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea
    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: February 25, 2024 - 5:00 pm

    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea, an exhibition about the 1956 sinking of the SS Andrea Doria and the rescue of her passengers.

     

    The exhibition will be on view from June 16, 2022 through June 2023.  There will be an opening reception on Thursday, June 16 from 6 to 8 PM.

     

    The SS Andrea Doria was the pride of postwar Italy.  A glamorous transatlantic ocean liner, she was a “floating art gallery” and a marvel of midcentury modern design.  She carried celebrities as well as Italian immigrants to new opportunities in America.

     

    On July 25, 1956, the Swedish liner MS Stockholm collided with the Andrea Doria, which was en route to New York.  The subsequent rescue was one of the most dramatic and well-documented in sea history.

     

    The Andrea Doria foundered 11 hours after the collision, and now lays on her starboard side 250 feet below the surface, about 50 miles from Nantucket.

     

    The exhibition will feature objects and artifacts from the extensive collection of diver and researcher John Moyer, Salvor in Possession of the Andrea Doria.

     

    In addition to numerous rare photographs and artwork, on display will be a lifering from the Andrea Doria, as well as china from all passenger classes, pottery, glassware, silverware, and the ship’s brass bell, recovered by Moyer and a team of divers.

     

    The exhibition was developed with the guidance of survivor, educator, author, and filmmaker Pierette Domenica Simpson, who is the gatekeeper of Andrea Doria survivor stories.  She is the author of the books Alive on the Andrea Doria!: The Greatest Sea Rescue in History and I Was Shipwrecked on the Andrea Doria! The Titanic of the 1950s

     

    Archival newsreel footage of the Andrea Doria’s maiden voyage, the collision, and the rescue of her passengers—all provided by the Sherman Grinberg Library—will be shown in the exhibition on a converted Firestone television from 1956, the year of the sinking.

     

    The exhibition also includes underwater footage shot by Bill Campbell and Billy Deans of John Moyer and a team diving to the wreck and recovering two 1,000-pound ceramic mural panels by Italian artist Guido Gambone (1909-1969).

     

    In 1993, Moyer was awarded an Admiralty Arrest in US Federal Court and named Salvor in Possession of the wreck.  In the ruling, US District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez stated Moyer’s “research and archeological documentation of his effort indicate a respect for the Andrea Doria as something more than just a commercial salvage project.”

     

    Photographs of some of the Andrea Doria survivors are featured in the exhibition, including Simpson, who, at nine years old, was immigrating to the United States with her grandparents, Pietro and Domenica Burzio, to start a new life with her mother Vivian, who had moved to Detroit eight years earlier to pursue the American Dream.

     

    Simpson wrote and produced the 2016 documentary Andrea Doria: Are the Passengers Saved?, directed by Luca Guardabascio of Rome.  To mark the 66th

  • Arc of Twenty Years
    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: February 25, 2024 - 5:00 pm

    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Arc of Twenty Years, an exhibition independently curated by photographer Michael McWeeney and painter Sarah Yuster featuring art created in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.

    The exhibition will be on view from August 12 to October 3, 2021 in the museum’s library.  There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, August 11 from 6 to 8 PM.

    Arc of Twenty Years will feature the work of Ghanim Khalil, Scott LoBaido, Diane Matyas, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Kristi Pfister, Marguerite Maria Rivas, and Sarah Yuster, all Staten Island artists.  It is a multimedia exhibition about the emotional impact and socio-political changes on Staten Island after the attacks.

    A lithograph featuring the World Trade Center by John A. Noble (1913-1983), the museum’s namesake, will also be included in the exhibition. 

    Curator Sarah Yuster states, “In the twenty years since 9/11, much of our populace has notably changed.  The way we see ourselves and each other as individuals, as Americans, took a marked trajectory spurred by one event.  The exhibition catalogues and explores major aspects of these permutations through art, photography, written word and short films.”

    Ms. Yuster continues, “Staten Island is, in many ways, a microcosm of the United States in terms of ethnicities, economics, and ideologies.  An immediate and long-term aftermath of that day rippled through the nation.  The initial agony of three thousand innocent lives lost at once, the ensuing spasms of fury and fear were felt most intensely here.  Empathy, camaraderie, selflessness and unity soared for weeks, galvanizing New Yorkers, but quickly dissipated into dissenting factions.  The art and response from all factions will be displayed.”

    Curator Michael McWeeney added, “This is not just a memorial; it’s a look at how we as a society have grown over the past 20 years.  The artists take you through their personal stories and contemplate how all of our lives have been altered by the 9/11 attacks.”

    Sarah Yuster’s painting The Firefighter, on loan from the Staten Island Children’s Museum, as well as three paintings depicting the changing skyline in Lower Manhattan from 1985 to 2014, will be on display.

    “Witness,” a poem by Staten Island’s first Poet Laureate Marguerite Maria Rivas, will be featured in the exhibition.  Rivas first wrote the poem as an email to a friend in Colorado immediately after the attacks, and it is now part of the National September 11th Museum’s online collection.

    Ann Marie McDonnell contributed two bronze sculptures, The Missing and The Faithful, which honor the lives of those lost and the loved ones who mourn them. 

    Diane Matyas contributed a multimedia work incorporating a painting with an apron and napkin, which she made to honor the lives of the Windows on the World restaurant employees.

    Scott LoBaido will exhibit a reproduction of an oil painting that he completed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks; it originally hung in Cargo Cafe in St. George, a local gathering place for the community at that time.

    Kristi Pfister will display six paintings, five of which are on ceramic tiles, and one drawing completed in the aftermath of 9/11 depicting people in various states of digging and waiting, searching for answers.

    Michael McWeeney will display a photograph of the Tribute in Light taken in March 2002, the first time those lights were lit, as well as a series of portraits with accompanying audio in the subjects’ own words about the Muslim experience after 9/11, as conceived by scholar Ghanim Khalil.

    The John A. Noble lithograph Ghost of a Bygone Ferry will be on display from the museum’s collection.  This print is his reaction to the passage of time and the decline of numerous ferry routes in New York Harbor by the 1970s; the Twin Towers, under construction, figure prominently in the background of the composition.

    For more information about the exhibition, visit noblemaritime.org/arc-of-twenty-years.

    This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and by a grant from the Lily Auchincloss Foundation.

    The Noble Maritime Collection, located in a former mariners’ dormitory at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, New York, is open from 12 until 5 PM, Thursdays through Sundays.  Admission is by donation.

    The Art Guild invites all photographers and artists, high school and older, to submit photography for consideration for My “20/20” World Photography Show, an Online Juried Competition and Exhibition.   

    What is your “20/20” vision? The past year limited our access to the world and posed unprecedented challenges. It also sparked our creativity. We photographed indoors; or, mask in place, we ventured out to capture new images. Perhaps past work came to mind and we used this time to review or revise it. Show us art that shines through a difficult time.  Your work will be exhibited in an online gallery.

    CRITERIA  All photographic genres are welcome: portraits, landscapes, photojournalism, macro photography and composites. All work must be original. Submitted work must be the artist’s own. Works previously exhibited at The Art Guild Gallery will not be considered.

    JUROR OF AWARDS Award-winning photographers Bill and Gen Rudock will serve as Jurors of Awards. With over 60 years of combined photographic experience, they share a love and passion for photography, traveling, nature, and wildlife. Their knowledge and their reputations have made them sought after speakers, lecturers, and workshop instructors.

    ENTRY FEE(S) Entry fees are payable online when you upload or by mailing a check or using Paypal as detailed below. Registration is required and fees are non-refundable.

    Members: $25 (1-2 pieces)
    Non-members: $35 (1-2 pieces)
    High School Student members: $15 (1-2 pieces)
    One additional entry: $10 (per person)

    No more than 3 works per artist.  Entry fees are non-refundable.

    AWARDS 1st Place $300 • 2nd Place $200 • 3rd Place $100 • Honorable Mentions • Student awards will also be given, if appropriate.

  • Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea
    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: February 29, 2024 - 5:00 pm

    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea, an exhibition about the 1956 sinking of the SS Andrea Doria and the rescue of her passengers.

     

    The exhibition will be on view from June 16, 2022 through June 2023.  There will be an opening reception on Thursday, June 16 from 6 to 8 PM.

     

    The SS Andrea Doria was the pride of postwar Italy.  A glamorous transatlantic ocean liner, she was a “floating art gallery” and a marvel of midcentury modern design.  She carried celebrities as well as Italian immigrants to new opportunities in America.

     

    On July 25, 1956, the Swedish liner MS Stockholm collided with the Andrea Doria, which was en route to New York.  The subsequent rescue was one of the most dramatic and well-documented in sea history.

     

    The Andrea Doria foundered 11 hours after the collision, and now lays on her starboard side 250 feet below the surface, about 50 miles from Nantucket.

     

    The exhibition will feature objects and artifacts from the extensive collection of diver and researcher John Moyer, Salvor in Possession of the Andrea Doria.

     

    In addition to numerous rare photographs and artwork, on display will be a lifering from the Andrea Doria, as well as china from all passenger classes, pottery, glassware, silverware, and the ship’s brass bell, recovered by Moyer and a team of divers.

     

    The exhibition was developed with the guidance of survivor, educator, author, and filmmaker Pierette Domenica Simpson, who is the gatekeeper of Andrea Doria survivor stories.  She is the author of the books Alive on the Andrea Doria!: The Greatest Sea Rescue in History and I Was Shipwrecked on the Andrea Doria! The Titanic of the 1950s

     

    Archival newsreel footage of the Andrea Doria’s maiden voyage, the collision, and the rescue of her passengers—all provided by the Sherman Grinberg Library—will be shown in the exhibition on a converted Firestone television from 1956, the year of the sinking.

     

    The exhibition also includes underwater footage shot by Bill Campbell and Billy Deans of John Moyer and a team diving to the wreck and recovering two 1,000-pound ceramic mural panels by Italian artist Guido Gambone (1909-1969).

     

    In 1993, Moyer was awarded an Admiralty Arrest in US Federal Court and named Salvor in Possession of the wreck.  In the ruling, US District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez stated Moyer’s “research and archeological documentation of his effort indicate a respect for the Andrea Doria as something more than just a commercial salvage project.”

     

    Photographs of some of the Andrea Doria survivors are featured in the exhibition, including Simpson, who, at nine years old, was immigrating to the United States with her grandparents, Pietro and Domenica Burzio, to start a new life with her mother Vivian, who had moved to Detroit eight years earlier to pursue the American Dream.

     

    Simpson wrote and produced the 2016 documentary Andrea Doria: Are the Passengers Saved?, directed by Luca Guardabascio of Rome.  To mark the 66th

  • Arc of Twenty Years
    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: February 29, 2024 - 5:00 pm

    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Arc of Twenty Years, an exhibition independently curated by photographer Michael McWeeney and painter Sarah Yuster featuring art created in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.

    The exhibition will be on view from August 12 to October 3, 2021 in the museum’s library.  There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, August 11 from 6 to 8 PM.

    Arc of Twenty Years will feature the work of Ghanim Khalil, Scott LoBaido, Diane Matyas, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Kristi Pfister, Marguerite Maria Rivas, and Sarah Yuster, all Staten Island artists.  It is a multimedia exhibition about the emotional impact and socio-political changes on Staten Island after the attacks.

    A lithograph featuring the World Trade Center by John A. Noble (1913-1983), the museum’s namesake, will also be included in the exhibition. 

    Curator Sarah Yuster states, “In the twenty years since 9/11, much of our populace has notably changed.  The way we see ourselves and each other as individuals, as Americans, took a marked trajectory spurred by one event.  The exhibition catalogues and explores major aspects of these permutations through art, photography, written word and short films.”

    Ms. Yuster continues, “Staten Island is, in many ways, a microcosm of the United States in terms of ethnicities, economics, and ideologies.  An immediate and long-term aftermath of that day rippled through the nation.  The initial agony of three thousand innocent lives lost at once, the ensuing spasms of fury and fear were felt most intensely here.  Empathy, camaraderie, selflessness and unity soared for weeks, galvanizing New Yorkers, but quickly dissipated into dissenting factions.  The art and response from all factions will be displayed.”

    Curator Michael McWeeney added, “This is not just a memorial; it’s a look at how we as a society have grown over the past 20 years.  The artists take you through their personal stories and contemplate how all of our lives have been altered by the 9/11 attacks.”

    Sarah Yuster’s painting The Firefighter, on loan from the Staten Island Children’s Museum, as well as three paintings depicting the changing skyline in Lower Manhattan from 1985 to 2014, will be on display.

    “Witness,” a poem by Staten Island’s first Poet Laureate Marguerite Maria Rivas, will be featured in the exhibition.  Rivas first wrote the poem as an email to a friend in Colorado immediately after the attacks, and it is now part of the National September 11th Museum’s online collection.

    Ann Marie McDonnell contributed two bronze sculptures, The Missing and The Faithful, which honor the lives of those lost and the loved ones who mourn them. 

    Diane Matyas contributed a multimedia work incorporating a painting with an apron and napkin, which she made to honor the lives of the Windows on the World restaurant employees.

    Scott LoBaido will exhibit a reproduction of an oil painting that he completed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks; it originally hung in Cargo Cafe in St. George, a local gathering place for the community at that time.

    Kristi Pfister will display six paintings, five of which are on ceramic tiles, and one drawing completed in the aftermath of 9/11 depicting people in various states of digging and waiting, searching for answers.

    Michael McWeeney will display a photograph of the Tribute in Light taken in March 2002, the first time those lights were lit, as well as a series of portraits with accompanying audio in the subjects’ own words about the Muslim experience after 9/11, as conceived by scholar Ghanim Khalil.

    The John A. Noble lithograph Ghost of a Bygone Ferry will be on display from the museum’s collection.  This print is his reaction to the passage of time and the decline of numerous ferry routes in New York Harbor by the 1970s; the Twin Towers, under construction, figure prominently in the background of the composition.

    For more information about the exhibition, visit noblemaritime.org/arc-of-twenty-years.

    This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and by a grant from the Lily Auchincloss Foundation.

    The Noble Maritime Collection, located in a former mariners’ dormitory at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, New York, is open from 12 until 5 PM, Thursdays through Sundays.  Admission is by donation.

  • Picturing the Water: The Photography of Alice Austen
    Starts: 12:00 am
    Ends: February 29, 2024 - 11:59 pm

    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Alice Austen House and the Noble Maritime Collection present a collection of never-before-seen nautical photographs of one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers. Living and working on Staten Island during the Gilded Age, Alice Austen (1866–1952) was one of the first women photographers to work outside the confines of a studio, employing a visionary documentary style that was ahead of its time. Picturing the Water explores Austen’s deep connection to both local and international waterways and the vessels that traverse them. The newly printed photographs, reproduced from Austen’s glass plate and film negatives, will be framed in John Noble’s signature handmade frames, reflecting on parallels between the artists’ visions.

    This exhibition was guest-curated by Alice Austen House Executive Director Victoria Munro with collections assistance by Kristine Allegretti.

    The exhibition will be on view from August 12 to October 3, 2021 in the museum’s library.  There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, August 11 from 6 to 8 PM.

    Arc of Twenty Years will feature the work of Ghanim Khalil, Scott LoBaido, Diane Matyas, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Kristi Pfister, Marguerite Maria Rivas, and Sarah Yuster, all Staten Island artists.  It is a multimedia exhibition about the emotional impact and socio-political changes on Staten Island after the attacks.

    A lithograph featuring the World Trade Center by John A. Noble (1913-1983), the museum’s namesake, will also be included in the exhibition. 

    Curator Sarah Yuster states, “In the twenty years since 9/11, much of our populace has notably changed.  The way we see ourselves and each other as individuals, as Americans, took a marked trajectory spurred by one event.  The exhibition catalogues and explores major aspects of these permutations through art, photography, written word and short films.”

    Ms. Yuster continues, “Staten Island is, in many ways, a microcosm of the United States in terms of ethnicities, economics, and ideologies.  An immediate and long-term aftermath of that day rippled through the nation.  The initial agony of three thousand innocent lives lost at once, the ensuing spasms of fury and fear were felt most intensely here.  Empathy, camaraderie, selflessness and unity soared for weeks, galvanizing New Yorkers, but quickly dissipated into dissenting factions.  The art and response from all factions will be displayed.”

    Curator Michael McWeeney added, “This is not just a memorial; it’s a look at how we as a society have grown over the past 20 years.  The artists take you through their personal stories and contemplate how all of our lives have been altered by the 9/11 attacks.”

    Sarah Yuster’s painting The Firefighter, on loan from the Staten Island Children’s Museum, as well as three paintings depicting the changing skyline in Lower Manhattan from 1985 to 2014, will be on display.

    “Witness,” a poem by Staten Island’s first Poet Laureate Marguerite Maria Rivas, will be featured in the exhibition.  Rivas first wrote the poem as an email to a friend in Colorado immediately after the attacks, and it is now part of the National September 11th Museum’s online collection.

    Ann Marie McDonnell contributed two bronze sculptures, The Missing and The Faithful, which honor the lives of those lost and the loved ones who mourn them. 

    Diane Matyas contributed a multimedia work incorporating a painting with an apron and napkin, which she made to honor the lives of the Windows on the World restaurant employees.

    Scott LoBaido will exhibit a reproduction of an oil painting that he completed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks; it originally hung in Cargo Cafe in St. George, a local gathering place for the community at that time.

    Kristi Pfister will display six paintings, five of which are on ceramic tiles, and one drawing completed in the aftermath of 9/11 depicting people in various states of digging and waiting, searching for answers.

    Michael McWeeney will display a photograph of the Tribute in Light taken in March 2002, the first time those lights were lit, as well as a series of portraits with accompanying audio in the subjects’ own words about the Muslim experience after 9/11, as conceived by scholar Ghanim Khalil.

    The John A. Noble lithograph Ghost of a Bygone Ferry will be on display from the museum’s collection.  This print is his reaction to the passage of time and the decline of numerous ferry routes in New York Harbor by the 1970s; the Twin Towers, under construction, figure prominently in the background of the composition.

  • Picturing the Water: The Photography of Alice Austen
    Starts: 12:00 am
    Ends: March 1, 2024 - 11:59 pm

    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Alice Austen House and the Noble Maritime Collection present a collection of never-before-seen nautical photographs of one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers. Living and working on Staten Island during the Gilded Age, Alice Austen (1866–1952) was one of the first women photographers to work outside the confines of a studio, employing a visionary documentary style that was ahead of its time. Picturing the Water explores Austen’s deep connection to both local and international waterways and the vessels that traverse them. The newly printed photographs, reproduced from Austen’s glass plate and film negatives, will be framed in John Noble’s signature handmade frames, reflecting on parallels between the artists’ visions.

    This exhibition was guest-curated by Alice Austen House Executive Director Victoria Munro with collections assistance by Kristine Allegretti.

  • SIST Auditions: The Tempest by William Shakespeare
    Starts: 6:00 pm
    Ends: March 2, 2024 - 2:00 pm

    Location: Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden

    Staten Island Shakespearean Theatre Company Audition Announcement:

    The Tempest
    By William Shakespeare, Adapted by J. Giachetti

    Director: J. Giachetti (They/Them)

    Assistant Director/Choreographer: Sami Blake(She/Her)
    Stage Manager: Leanna Klein (She/Her)

    Shakespeare’s tale of magic, love, and retribution gets an enchanting, “high fantasy” makeover in this new adaptation of “The Tempest”. Prospero, a powerful sorceress, sets a plan in motion twelve years in the making, wrecking a royal ship upon the shores of her island and beginning her game of “chess”. The players: the ruler of Naples and their child; Prospero’s conniving brother; punch-drunk noblemen; two spirits of nature; and even her own child, Miranda. The goal: to set right the wrongs of the past in hopes of giving her daughter a brighter future. In a thrilling re-exploration of the text, with sorcery and motherhood at its core, this production utilizes both the original prose and poetry, as well as dance and movement, to bring this classic faerie tale to life.

    This production will rehearse Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons from March through May, starting at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden in Staten Island (minutes away from the free Staten Island ferry) before moving to the Staten Island Playhouse at Empire Outlets (located at the Staten Island Ferry).

    Auditions will take place on Friday, March 1st from 6:00 to 10:00pm, and Saturday, March 2, from 10:00am to 2:00pm, with callbacks from 4:00pm to 7:00pm in The Learning Center, Building G, at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301.

    Auditions will be booked in hour long windows, which will include a 20 minute dance/movement call.

    To make an audition appointment email Stage Manager, Leanna Klein, at sist.thetempest2024@gmail.com with a preferable time window and we will accommodate as best as possible. Self tape auditions/callbacks will be taken on a case-by-case basis.

    Please prepare a Shakespeare monologue in the tone of the show (perferably around 90 seconds). Memorized is preferred, but rather have you on book than not there if interested.

    ALL ROLES ARE OPEN. There will be a small stipend provided to actors.

    This production is interested in having a diverse cast that represents our modern landscape, showcasing actors of different races, ethnicities, ages, sexualities, body types, abilities, et cetera.

    Performances will take place in the Staten Island Playhouse at Empire Outlets on Staten Island, right next to the ferry terminal on the following dates:

    Friday, May 10 – 8:00pm
    Saturday, May 11 – 8:00pm
    Sunday, May 12 – 2:00pm
    Friday, May 17 – 8:00pm
    Saturday, May 18 – 8:00pm
    Sunday, May 19 – 2:00pm

    MIRANDA (18-30, All Ethnicities, Female Identifying Character): Prospero’s daughter. Fiery. Passionate. Leads with her heart, but is not afraid to fight. A reflection of her mother.

    ARIEL (18-40, All Ethnicities, All Genders): A powerful fae and servant/confidant for Prospero. A shapeshifter and conjurer. Torn between their love for Prospero and their desire for freedom. *This role may include nudity*

    ALONSO (35-60, All Ethnicities, All Genders): Ruler of Naples. Parent of Ferdinand. The key to Prospero’s plan, and her foil in parenting styles.

    FERDINAND (18-30, All Ethnicities, All Genders): Heir of Naples. Passionate. Loyal. Hardworking. Leads with their heart, and a pillar of chivalry.

    STEPHANO (21-50, All Ethnicities, All Genders): Alanso’s butler and best friends with Trinculo. Samples a bit too much of the good wine. Ignorantly partners with Caliban to usurp Prospero.

    TRINCULO (21-50, All Ethnicities, All Genders): Alanso’s jester and best friends with Stephano. The ultimate blowhard, but without the brains to back up the bravado. Ignorantly partners with Caliban to usurp Prospero.

    GONZALO (35-60, All Ethnicities, All Genders): Prospero’s former advisor, who helped them escape Milan 12 years before the story began. A voice of reason and desirer of their old mistress’ return.
