There are cultures in which art is not separated from daily life. Native American art provides deep meaning about life. Artifacts including Lakota beadwork, Navajo rugs, Pueblo pottery, Pipestone pipes, and Zuni animal fetishes tell us stories that teach us about life, the universe, and our place in creation. Here, art is functional and ordinary objects become things of beauty and passion that carry stories. Ann Leslie has a deep connection that will be exhibited in her show-and-tell collection of artifacts of various Native American tribes.

Aaron Burr is, of course, the antagonist of the musical Hamilton. “Fallen Founder” and “Dark Star of the Founding” are names that have been given to Burr in the two centuries since his tumultuous life. He was a man who seemed to have plots and intrigues circling around him. Joyce Haworth will recount Burr’s life after the famous duel with Alexander Hamilton in 1804, when he sought to overthrow a government in the southwest and set up his own rule.

It’s western civilization’s ultimate art form, and essential to any city with a cultural tradition. Adding to the experience of grand opera are the buildings themselves, including their architecture, appointments, and crucially, their acoustics. Consider legendary opera houses in Florence, Milan, Venice, Paris, London, and Chicago’s two opera houses, the Auditorium and Civic Opera House. Jerome M. O’Connor will pay special attention to his 2016 tour of St. Petersburg’s new $700 million Mariinsky Theatre. Hint: it’s spectacular.
