Grand Ole Opry

Dec
19

Friday, December 19, 2014

In 1925, the Grand Ole Opry, an American institution and the longest radio show in the country, began broadcasting on WSM, radio station of the National Life and Accident Insurance Company. The idea was to broadcast a show of old-time music performed by amateur musicians as a way of promoting the insurance company in and around Nashville.

The show, still broadcast today on WSM, grew to become the radio home of some of the most prominent and influential artists in the country music genre, including Minnie Pearl, Chet Atkins, and Ernest Tubb, and it was an important and enduring chapter of radio history. It brought country music to the masses and created superstars out of a little-known genre of singers.

In 1954, Good Housekeeping published an article that proclaimed, ?The mecca of all country and Western music lovers is Nashville, Tennessee, where the famous radio program Grand Ole Opry originates.?

ExhibitsUSA?s Grand Ole Opry features thirty gelatin silver prints by Gordon Gillingham, a commercial photographer hired to photograph the Opry between 1952 and 1960. The images document the radio show and the country music business during the zenith of country music?s postwar boom, and wonderfully capture the spirit, energy, camaraderie, and sheer joy of performing that permeated both musicians and fans of The Opry in its heyday. Gillingham?s photographs show us everything from Johnny Cash signing autographs backstage to artists rehearsing for the Grand Ole Opry television show to crowds of fans gathering outside The Opry auditorium.

Today, The Opry is an American icon that continues to honor and showcase country?s longstanding legends like Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, and Dolly Parton, as well as contemporary crooners like Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, and Blake Shelton. The Opry stage presents multiple concerts each week and draws thousands of music-lovers each year.

Grand Ole Opry is curated by Brenda Colladay, museum and photograph curator at the Grand Ole Opry. It is adapted for travel by ExhibitsUSA, a program of Mid-America Arts Alliance.

The Rise of a Landmark: Lewis Hine and the Empire State Building

Dec
19

Friday, December 19, 2014

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.

Grand Ole Opry

Dec

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

In 1925, the Grand Ole Opry, an American institution and the longest radio show in the country, began broadcasting on WSM, radio station of the National Life and Accident Insurance Company. The idea was to broadcast a show of old-time music performed by amateur musicians as a way of promoting the insurance company in and around Nashville.

The show, still broadcast today on WSM, grew to become the radio home of some of the most prominent and influential artists in the country music genre, including Minnie Pearl, Chet Atkins, and Ernest Tubb, and it was an important and enduring chapter of radio history. It brought country music to the masses and created superstars out of a little-known genre of singers.

In 1954, Good Housekeeping published an article that proclaimed, ?The mecca of all country and Western music lovers is Nashville, Tennessee, where the famous radio program Grand Ole Opry originates.?

ExhibitsUSA?s Grand Ole Opry features thirty gelatin silver prints by Gordon Gillingham, a commercial photographer hired to photograph the Opry between 1952 and 1960. The images document the radio show and the country music business during the zenith of country music?s postwar boom, and wonderfully capture the spirit, energy, camaraderie, and sheer joy of performing that permeated both musicians and fans of The Opry in its heyday. Gillingham?s photographs show us everything from Johnny Cash signing autographs backstage to artists rehearsing for the Grand Ole Opry television show to crowds of fans gathering outside The Opry auditorium.

Today, The Opry is an American icon that continues to honor and showcase country?s longstanding legends like Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, and Dolly Parton, as well as contemporary crooners like Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, and Blake Shelton. The Opry stage presents multiple concerts each week and draws thousands of music-lovers each year.

Grand Ole Opry is curated by Brenda Colladay, museum and photograph curator at the Grand Ole Opry. It is adapted for travel by ExhibitsUSA, a program of Mid-America Arts Alliance.
