Description
From bedrock to the colossus of the Manhattan skyline, photographer Lewis Wickes Hine documented every foot of the construction of the monumental Empire State Building. In 1930, Hine began the treacherous ascent-safety belt in place and camera in hand-with the expectation of creating an ideal portrait of modern architecture. However, his resulting photographs of this year-long project speak more of the integrity of the workers who toiled to perfect the structure than of the glorification of the building itself.

Hine's Empire State photographs build on this theme of the human condition amidst the quickening pace of early 20th-century society.

The Rise of a Landmark will be on display courtesy of the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film.

Description
The Acousticatz are steeped in bluegrass but tinged by pop, jazz and
country and can best be summed up in just five words: Everything old
is new again. This group offers a refreshing, wholesome approach that
crosses demographic lines and embraces young and old alike.

They were Arkansas State winners and national semifinalists (one of 10
acts out of more than 100,000) of the Colgate Country Showdown, the
biggest country music competition in the world. Performing a blend of
original and traditional favorites, the group has enjoyed extensive
touring throughout Arkansas and the U.S. as well as maintaining a
brisk schedule for the Arkansas Arts Council Arts-On-Tour program.
The Acousticatz are also a featured group with the Mid-America Arts
Alliance in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
They've also been featured the last four years at the American Music
and Craftsmanship festival at Silver Dollar City and are proud members
of the International Bluegrass Music Association. The group has three
CDs to their credit and are working on their fourth recording project
with some exciting new original material.

Pete Brown heads up the stage performances for The Acousticatz with
incredible driving fiddle, mandolin and sings baritone, lead and a
number of attempts at humor. Pete's been performing for 30+ years
for bluegrass and country audiences and frequently gets asked to
judge state and national fiddle championships. Pete lives in Benton,
Arkansas.

Buddy Case is a gifted singer/songwriter and considered by many as
one of the top finger style guitar players in the country. Raised in
California, Buddy's family moved to Little Rock when he was 14 and he
began playing lead guitar in a 40 piece church orchestra. During his
career, he has recorded a number of solo and collaborative albums.
Buddy and his beautiful wife, Karen make their home in Enola, Arkansas.

Patti LaFleur started picking banjo at a very young age and bought a
bass at the age of 12 to join a group that needed a bass player. Her
driving bass style is the glue that holds The Acousticatz together. Patti
sings tenor, lead, handles bookings for the band and attempts to keep
Pete Brown humble. Patti lives in Benton, Arkansas.

In 1930, Hine began the treacherous ascent-safety belt in place and camera in hand-with the expectation of creating an ideal portrait of modern architecture. However, his resulting photographs of this year-long project speak more of the integrity of the workers who toiled to perfect the structure than of the glorification of the building itself.

Hine's Empire State photographs build on this theme of the human condition amidst the quickening pace of early 20th-century society.
