The Guggenheim

P90067214

Upside-down Cupcake

On this day in 1959 a giant upside down cupcake was opened as an art museum in New York City. A home to one of the world’s top collections of contemporary art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum boasts a ground breaking design by none other than Frank Lloyd Wright. checklist_heald_03_800 The Guggenheim is located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, just east of Central Park on 5th Avenue and East 89th Street. It is the permanent home to an always expanding collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, early Modern and contemporary art. The museum also features special exhibits throughout the year. 7592434524_c0df47c9e4 Solomon Guggenheim loved art and had been collecting works of the old masters since the 1890’s. In 1926 he hooked up with artist Hilla von Rebay who changed his collecting strategy, influencing him towards abstract art. She felt it revealed a spiritual, utopian aspect to art… and she was kinda cute. Rebay was the unsung driver in creating the museum and is worth reading more about: [For more on Hilla von Rebay click here]

In 1943 Guggenheim and Rebay wrote to Frank Lloyd Wright asking him to design a structure to house his growing collection of contemporary art. It took Wright 15 years and 700 sketches to create the museum.

The spiral design recalled a nautilus shell, with continuous spaces flowing freely one into another.[1] Wright explained, “these geometric forms suggest certain human ideas, moods, sentiments – as for instance: the circle, infinity; the triangle, structural unity; the spiral, organic progress; the square, integrity.” Guggenheim001-BM-Berlin-Tokio

The museum opened October 21, 1959, ten years after the death of Guggenheim and six months after the death of Wright. Although the museum was highly criticized before and during its construction, the building became widely praised and has inspired architects and museum design since its opening.

Meet Salix Amygdaloides, “Grandpa Tree”

Grandpa Tree

Meet “Grandpa Tree”

Recently a new friend mentioned a giant old tree she once visited that was fairly close to my neighborhood. She asked if I had heard of it. I decided to investigate and found a National Champion sleeping in the neighborhood.

From an August 1988 article in The Milwaukee Journal I found that the tree was first “discovered” by a guy riding past it on his bicycle. It was starting to get a bit chilly so Eugene Zanow stopped pedaling to zip up his jacket. He noticed a large clump of tree limbs and having a curious nature decided to investigate.

He crossed the stream and came across this giant peach-leaf willow (salix amygdaloides). Sensing he had found something special he notified the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources who keep track of the biggest trees in the state. After verifying the species and taking measurements they notified the American Forestry Association out of Washington D.C. who verified the measurements and awarded it National Champion status for a peach-leaf willow. This tree is the largest of its kind in the country.

I had to see it for myself.

Guesstimating where it might be from the coordinates I found on-line I saw nothing but thick undergrowth, bushes and tree limbs. How could a giant national champion reside here? It should be easily seen right?

Shuffling down a muddy slope that lead to the edge of a small stream I saw the ghostly figure. There it was, just across the stream!

There are about 826 species of native and introduced trees in the US. They are measured every couple years with the national record trees recorded and published by the American Forestry Association.

All but one of the country’s 25 largest trees are located in the West. The one Eastern tree is a bald cypress in Louisiana.

Minnesota has three, the jack pine, red pine and white spruce.

Michigan on the other hand has 75 of the record trees.

Of our state’s national record-trees, the peach-leaf willow is the largest known tree in Wisconsin. It is also the eighth biggest tree in the eastern states. Known as the “Grandpa Tree” for many years by local people, it grows in Greenfield Park on the west side of 116th Street in West Allis, Milwaukee County.

  • Circumference: 417 inches

  • Location: Milwaukee county, in Greenfield Park, West Allis, on the west side of 116th St.
  • Nominated: 8/5/88 
  • Date last measured: 2000

Peach-leaf willows are not that common in Wisconsin. They grow sparingly in the southern two-thirds of the state mostly in wet woods bordering rivers. The peach-leaf is abundant in the Rocky Mountains growing along nearly all rivers that flow from the Rockies to the Gulf of Mexico.

Makes me wonder how many people have driven by this awesome tree without realizing that in that thick brush is one of the state’s largest trees. I like how poet William Blake (1757-1827) put it:

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is, in the eye of others, only a green thing which stands in the way. As a man is, so he sees.”

Nation Anthem A Drinking Song?

5431623247_8656a75b75_z

National Anthem A Drinking Song?

Did you know the Star-Spangled Banner’s tune came from a drinking song? Oh yeah, Francis Scott Key penned the poem, “The Defense of Fort McHenry” today in 1814 and eventually matched it to the tune of a popular drinking song, “To Anacreon in Heaven”.

“To Anacreon in Heaven” was the official song of the Anacreontic Society, a popular 18th-century gentlemen’s club in London. Who is Anacreon? He was a Greek lyric poet (582 BC – 485 BC), notable for his drinking songs (go figure).

 “To Anacreon in Heaven”  

flag3During the War of 1812 Scott (right) was out on a British ship watching the bombing of Fort McHenry. He was there to negotiate the release of a friend who had been captured by the British.

us-flag-2-painting

Key was inspired to write the poem after seeing the U.S. flag still flying over Fort McHenry as he witnessed the heavy bombardment of the fort throughout the night:

“And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.”

Ft__Henry_bombardement_1814The British were unable to destroy the fort and eventually gave up.

The poem was printed in newspapers and eventually set to the music of that English drinking tune by composer John Stafford Smith. People began referring to the song as “The Star-Spangled Banner” and in 1916 President Woodrow Wilson announced that it should be played at all official events. It was adopted as the national anthem on March 3, 1931.

What’s left of the McHenry flag is still standing at the Smithsonian in D.C.

Key was pro-slavery and considered to be a decent master. Eventually he had to face the reality of the evil of slavery and emancipated his slaves. He became publicly critical of slavery’s cruelties and as a lawyer began helping blacks bring cases to the circuit courts.

Francis Scott Key died of pleurisy on January 11, 1843.

Hawking Discovers Alien Signals

Leopoldo-Galluzzo-Moon-8

Ssshh_Dont_contact_Aliens!_230Imagine opening your browser this morning to find the startling news that alien life had been discovered.

The reports confirm that Steven Hawking, using a Titan supercomputer, began analyzing data from SETI’s telescope array in a most novel way. Using this brilliant technique, he and his colleagues discovered signals from intelligent life. At first it reads like a science fiction story but you soon find that Hawking and his colleagues have tapped into an extra-terrestrial television like transmission.

Amazingly they are watching, and reporting to the world, the first blurry images of the alien civilization’s display of themselves on the Titan monitor.

You watch in amazement as images of the strange alien race emerge from your screen. Alien races and landscapes, wacky sitcoms, low budget reality shows have been indiscriminately beamed into space. Wait a minute, sitcoms, reality shows?Moon_Hoax_1859_NY_William_Gowans

We can trust CNN, Fox News and MSN right? Pretty soon skepticism emerges. Questions are raised. Eventually you realize we’ve been taken in by a clever hoax. Despite the deception it was kind of fun and it’s hard to not appreciate the deception. For a shining moment, people around the world set aside their petty rivalries and believed in the marvel from above.

This is exactly what happened on this day in 1835, the first in a series of six articles announcing the discovery of life on the moon goes viral after it appears in the New York Sun newspaper.

Known as “The Great Moon Hoax,” the articles were supposedly reprinted from the Edinburgh Journal of Science. Hmmm, Edinburg Journal of Science, sounds legit.

Great-Moon-Hoax-1835-New-York-Sun-lithograph-298px

It was written by Dr. Andrew Grant (a fictional character) who was described as a colleague of the most famous astronomer of the day, the very real Sir John Herschel.

A good hoax has to be based on some facts and Sir John had just set up a powerful new technologically advanced telescope in Cape Town, South Africa. As Grant described it, Herschel had found evidence of life forms on the moon including fantastic animals like unicorns, beaver that stood on two legs and furry winged humanoids resembling bats.

In the articles, Grant offered a vivid description of the moon’s geography complete with rushing rivers, huge amethyst crystals and lush vegetation.

From the day the first article was released, the Sun’s sales increased significantly. Dang this was exciting stuff and readers ate it up, couldn’t get enough. Of course none of it was true, but Richard Adams Locke, the Sun reporter who most likely wrote the articles, thought it was great satire making fun of the Reverend Thomas Dick, who claimed in his bestselling books that the moon alone had 4.2 billion inhabitants.

Readers were completely taken in by the articles and failed to realize it was satire. The craze over the Herschel discoveries even fooled a committee of Yale scientists who traveled to New York in search of the Edinburgh Journal articles. Ah, sorry guys but that moon story … not true.

On September 16, 1835, the Sun admitted the articles had been a hoax. People were generally amused by the whole thing, and sales of the paper didn’t suffer.

Dang Robin, you had some dialogue in Goodwill Hunting that changed how I look at relationships. Maybe you didn’t write it … but I felt it. Remember first seeing him on Mork and Mindy? America was thinking, “who is this guy, he’s funny”.

Maybe you remember some of these movies, there are a lot more but I just listed a couple I like…

Oh Captain my Captain – Walt Witman

O Captain! My Captain! our fearful trip is done; The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won; The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:

But O heart! heart! heart!

O the bleeding drops of red,

Where on the deck my Captain lies,

Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! My Captain! rise up and hear the bells; Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills; For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding; For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;

Here captain! dear father!

This arm beneath your head;

It is some dream that on the deck,

You’ve fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still; My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will; The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done; From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;

Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!

But I, with mournful tread,

Walk the deck my captain lies,

Fallen cold and dead.

Got More Than 15 Minutes

Today is Andrew Warhola’s birthday, August 6, 1928. After being incorrectly credited as “Warhol” in an early published drawing he decided to permanently remove the “a” from his name. [above: a self-portrait of Warhol eating cornflakes]

Andy Warhol, who began painting in the late 50’s, took the advice of an art teacher who told him to paint the things he liked. Well, he liked ordinary things like comic strips, canned soup, and soft drinks, and so he painted them.

warhol%20soup%20can-resized-600

Warhol operated out of his silver-painted studio in Manhattan called, The Factory. The Factory was Warhol’s original New York City studio from 1962 to 1968, famed for its groundbreaking parties. The Factory was the hip hangout for artsy types, amphetamine users, underground artists, social curiosities, and hangers-on, along with the Warhol superstars.

He designed the cover art for the Rolling Stones albums Sticky Fingers (1971) and Love You Live (1977), along with the John Cale album The Academy in Peril (1972).

Warhol also strongly influenced the new wave/punk rock band Devo, as well as David Bowie.

The highest price ever paid for a Warhol painting is $105 million for a 1963 canvas titled “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)”.

Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster), depicts a body twisted in the mangled interior of a silver car. It was painted by Andy Warhol at the age of 35. It is the last painting of the artist that was left in private hands. The painting is 8 by 13 foot in dimensions, and it was displayed only once in public during the last 26 years.

He became a fixture on the fashion and jet-set social scenes and was famous for pithy cultural observations like, “In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.”

On February 22, 1987, he died in the hospital of a heart attack shortly after a gall bladder operation.

The American pop artist used photography as a medium of art towards the end of his career and had a tendency to snap people in spontaneous moments.

Warhol's shot of John Lennon was taken in New York in 1979, a year before he was shot dead, and shows the boyfriend of fashion designer Halston poking his tongue out behind the Beatle.

19680914_0280_previewThe first Newport Pop Festival was held at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, California, on the weekend of August 3–4, 1968. It is believed to have been the first pop music concert attended by more than 100,000 paying concertgoers. Rolling Stone Mag estimated there were closer to 140,000. Admission to the festival was $5.50 per day. Concert goers recall helicopters dropping flowers on the audience.

Good Buddies: Ford & Gandhi

Gandhi-Ford1

Ford Writes Fan Letter

You may not know this but Henry Ford was an avowed pacifist. After living through the First World War he found himself disgusted by war. When Hitler invaded Poland, Britain and France he found himself in despair over the then current global situation.

AE_HenryFord_1_tx800

The automaker also disliked imperialism and was hopeful that Mahatma Gandhi’s campaign to push British rule out of India would be successful, establishing Indian home rule.

On this day in 1941, Ford wrote a letter to Gandhi offering his support and admiration. In part it read: “I want to take this opportunity of sending you a message…to tell you how deeply I admire your life and message. You are one of the greatest men the world has ever known. May God help you and guide your lofty work.” Ford considered Gandhi’s leadership and unwavering commitment to peace an example the rest of the world could follow.

2357418437_185198e684_z

Gandhi didn’t receive the letter until December 8, 1941, the day after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Gandhi was overjoyed with receiving such a heartfelt note from the great industrialist and considered it a good omen for his work. Greatly pleased, he decided to respond in kind by sending a portable spinning wheel, one of the old-fashioned devices that Gandhi famously used to produce his own cloth.

Gandhi advocated the boycott of the machine made European clothing as it caused large scale unemployment in India. He took to making hand-made cloth called Khadi that was inexpensive and suitable for poor Indians. Most importantly, it showed Indians how to be self-reliant. Gandhi spun cloth in jail and also used it as a meditative process.

The portable spinning wheel, called a charkha in Hindi, "folds into a bundle about the size of a portable typewriter and has a handle for carrying. When unfolded for use it is operated by turning a small crank which runs the two wheels and spindle of the device",

The wheel, autographed in Hindi and English, was shipped some 12,000 miles sending it across the world, over submarine-infested waters, and personally delivered to Ford by T.A. Raman, the London editor of the United Press of India. Ford kept it as a good luck charm as well as a symbol of the principles of simplicity and economic independence that both he and Gandhi championed.

Happy Birthday Rembrandt

800px-B320_Rembrandt

Today, July 15, 1606, is Rembrandt’s birthday. Born Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn he is generally considered one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art and of course the most important in Dutch history. [Image above: Self-portrait in a cap, with eyes wide open, etching and burin, 1630]

His contributions came during what historians call the Dutch Golden Age. Rembrandt has been called “one of the great prophets of civilization” because of his perceived empathy for the human condition.

His most famous works include:
