Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

By 1900, the Arts and Crafts movement was taking root in southeastern Pennsylvania with its adherents celebrating the handcrafted object and emphasizing Show More...the importance of art and craft as a path to a better life. During the early decades of the twentieth century, Bucks County became a center for the production of hand-carved frames produced by Frederick W. Harer and Bernard Badura, handcrafted wooden and wrought-iron furnishings by Morgan Colt, and stained glass by George Sotter. Woodworker George Nakashima settled in New Hope in the 1940s, where he established a studio and a reputation as a leading member of the first generation of American studio furniture makers while he produced furniture forms that respected the natural forms of the tree and showcased the wood's natural properties.
Reacting against post-World War II factory-made furniture, such Bucks County craftsmen as Phillip Lloyd Powell, Paul Evans, and Robert Whitley began producing unique custom-designed functional furniture that blurred the traditional boundaries between craft, sculpture, and design. As early as the 1970s, craftsman and sculptor Mark Sfirri began experimenting with multiaxis turnings to produce furniture and, subsequently, eccentrically turned wall sculptures. Join us for a lecture and curator conversation focusing on these artists, and others working during the studio craft movement in the Delaware Valley region.. ...Show Less

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

This unique collection includes images of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Harriet Tubman, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Malala Yousafzai, and many others.
Through these works, Welcome the Stranger reinforces the Museum's central themes regarding the basic principles for safeguarding liberty, including heroism, empathy, and the appreciation of diversity.
Micaela explains her motivation for this series of work as follows:
"As a first-generation American, I was brought up with an acute appreciation of America's unique heritage of liberty for all, learning Emma Lazarus' Lady Liberty poem ["The New Colossus"] as a young child... Seeing myself in others, I learned to cherish social justice and my civic responsibility to protect the rights of all citizens through education and dialogue."
Micaela Amateau Amato is professor emerita of art and women's studies at Penn State University. She is inspired by her Mediterranean ancestry from Iberia, Morocco, Turkey, and Rhodes. Her work is a reflection of her multiple personal and political influences resulting from her family's migratory history.. ...Show Less

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

"As a first-generation American, I was brought up with an acute appreciation of America's unique heritage of liberty for all, learning Emma Lazarus' Lady Liberty poem ["The New Colossus"] as a young child... Seeing myself in others, I learned to cherish social justice and my civic responsibility to protect the rights of all citizens through education and dialogue."

Her work is a reflection of her multiple personal and political influences resulting from her family's migratory history.. ...Show Less

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

The National Liberty Museum presents Welcome the Stranger, a one-woman exhibit of cast glass, ceramics, and mixed media by Micaela Amateau Amato. In this Show More...exhibit, Amato interprets the likeness of modern and historic figures who rose like "superheroes" to accept seemingly impossible challenges of liberty. This unique collection includes images of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Harriet Tubman, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Malala Yousafzai, and many others.
Through these works, Welcome the Stranger reinforces the Museum's central themes regarding the basic principles for safeguarding liberty, including heroism, empathy, and the appreciation of diversity.
Micaela explains her motivation for this series of work as follows:
"As a first-generation American, I was brought up with an acute appreciation of America's unique heritage of liberty for all, learning Emma Lazarus' Lady Liberty poem ["The New Colossus"] as a young child... Seeing myself in others, I learned to cherish social justice and my civic responsibility to protect the rights of all citizens through education and dialogue."
Micaela Amateau Amato is professor emerita of art and women's studies at Penn State University. She is inspired by her Mediterranean ancestry from Iberia, Morocco, Turkey, and Rhodes. Her work is a reflection of her multiple personal and political influences resulting from her family's migratory history.. ...Show Less

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

The National Liberty Museum presents Welcome the Stranger, a one-woman exhibit of cast glass, ceramics, and mixed media by Micaela Amateau Amato. In this Show More...exhibit, Amato interprets the likeness of modern and historic figures who rose like "superheroes" to accept seemingly impossible challenges of liberty. This unique collection includes images of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Harriet Tubman, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Malala Yousafzai, and many others.
Through these works, Welcome the Stranger reinforces the Museum's central themes regarding the basic principles for safeguarding liberty, including heroism, empathy, and the appreciation of diversity.
Micaela explains her motivation for this series of work as follows:
"As a first-generation American, I was brought up with an acute appreciation of America's unique heritage of liberty for all, learning Emma Lazarus' Lady Liberty poem ["The New Colossus"] as a young child... Seeing myself in others, I learned to cherish social justice and my civic responsibility to protect the rights of all citizens through education and dialogue."
Micaela Amateau Amato is professor emerita of art and women's studies at Penn State University. She is inspired by her Mediterranean ancestry from Iberia, Morocco, Turkey, and Rhodes. Her work is a reflection of her multiple personal and political influences resulting from her family's migratory history.. ...Show Less

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

The National Liberty Museum presents Welcome the Stranger, a one-woman exhibit of cast glass, ceramics, and mixed media by Micaela Amateau Amato. In this Show More...exhibit, Amato interprets the likeness of modern and historic figures who rose like "superheroes" to accept seemingly impossible challenges of liberty. This unique collection includes images of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Harriet Tubman, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Malala Yousafzai, and many others.
Through these works, Welcome the Stranger reinforces the Museum's central themes regarding the basic principles for safeguarding liberty, including heroism, empathy, and the appreciation of diversity.
Micaela explains her motivation for this series of work as follows:
"As a first-generation American, I was brought up with an acute appreciation of America's unique heritage of liberty for all, learning Emma Lazarus' Lady Liberty poem ["The New Colossus"] as a young child... Seeing myself in others, I learned to cherish social justice and my civic responsibility to protect the rights of all citizens through education and dialogue."
Micaela Amateau Amato is professor emerita of art and women's studies at Penn State University. She is inspired by her Mediterranean ancestry from Iberia, Morocco, Turkey, and Rhodes. Her work is a reflection of her multiple personal and political influences resulting from her family's migratory history.. ...Show Less

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

The National Liberty Museum presents Welcome the Stranger, a one-woman exhibit of cast glass, ceramics, and mixed media by Micaela Amateau Amato. In this Show More...exhibit, Amato interprets the likeness of modern and historic figures who rose like "superheroes" to accept seemingly impossible challenges of liberty. This unique collection includes images of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Harriet Tubman, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Malala Yousafzai, and many others.
Through these works, Welcome the Stranger reinforces the Museum's central themes regarding the basic principles for safeguarding liberty, including heroism, empathy, and the appreciation of diversity.
Micaela explains her motivation for this series of work as follows:
"As a first-generation American, I was brought up with an acute appreciation of America's unique heritage of liberty for all, learning Emma Lazarus' Lady Liberty poem ["The New Colossus"] as a young child... Seeing myself in others, I learned to cherish social justice and my civic responsibility to protect the rights of all citizens through education and dialogue."

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."
"Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" opens Friday, March 1, and runs through Sunday, November 3, in Glencairn's Upper Hall. Visitors may tour the exhibition's artwork, artifacts, historic documents, photographs, and tools of the sign painter's trade 1-4:30pm Saturday and Sunday without a reservation for a suggested donation of $5, Tuesday through Friday as part of the 2:30 guided tour of the castle, as part of other paid guided tours and events or by appointment.

Through these works, Welcome the Stranger reinforces the Museum's central themes regarding the basic principles for safeguarding liberty, including heroism, empathy, and the appreciation of diversity.
Micaela explains her motivation for this series of work as follows:
"As a first-generation American, I was brought up with an acute appreciation of America's unique heritage of liberty for all, learning Emma Lazarus' Lady Liberty poem ["The New Colossus"] as a young child... Seeing myself in others, I learned to cherish social justice and my civic responsibility to protect the rights of all citizens through education and dialogue."
Micaela Amateau Amato is professor emerita of art and women's studies at Penn State University. She is inspired by her Mediterranean ancestry from Iberia, Morocco, Turkey, and Rhodes. Her work is a reflection of her multiple personal and political influences resulting from her family's migratory history.. ...Show Less

Of the many cultures that have settled this region over the centuries and put their stamp on our traditions, foods, arts, music, celebrations and language, Show More...one of the least understood-despite its familiarity-is the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of "Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars" (2013), is working to change that. "Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars," an exhibition opening March 1 at Glencairn Museum that he is guest-curating, aims to crack open the meaning behind this Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition.
"Hex Signs" explores themes of sacred and celestial imagery in the traditional arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch, with special emphasis on the decorated barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and features actual examples of barn stars, decorated objects and related images. Visitors will be able to purchase a full exhibition catalog of "Hex Signs," a collaboration of the Heritage Center and Glencairn Museum for this exhibition.
"The first waves of German-speaking immigrants arrived at ports in Philadelphia in 1683," says Donmoyer, "settling Germantown before spreading throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and, eventually, throughout the United States.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch, whose presence in the region spans five centuries, were highly influential in their agriculture, architecture, language, trades, arts, holiday customs, and religion, and have flavored the distinctive culture of Pennsylvania and beyond."
Donmoyer notes that barn stars-also called hex signs-"are among the most visible public expressions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. These abstract, geometric depictions of celestial bodies can be found primarily in Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Bucks, and other counties in the region and have come to represent the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch."

The National Liberty Museum presents Welcome the Stranger, a one-woman exhibit of cast glass, ceramics, and mixed media by Micaela Amateau Amato. In this Show More...exhibit, Amato interprets the likeness of modern and historic figures who rose like "superheroes" to accept seemingly impossible challenges of liberty. This unique collection includes images of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Harriet Tubman, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Malala Yousafzai, and many others.
Through these works, Welcome the Stranger reinforces the Museum's central themes regarding the basic principles for safeguarding liberty, including heroism, empathy, and the appreciation of diversity.
Micaela explains her motivation for this series of work as follows:
"As a first-generation American, I was brought up with an acute appreciation of America's unique heritage of liberty for all, learning Emma Lazarus' Lady Liberty poem ["The New Colossus"] as a young child... Seeing myself in others, I learned to cherish social justice and my civic responsibility to protect the rights of all citizens through education and dialogue."
Micaela Amateau Amato is professor emerita of art and women's studies at Penn State University. She is inspired by her Mediterranean ancestry from Iberia, Morocco, Turkey, and Rhodes. Her work is a reflection of her multiple personal and political influences resulting from her family's migratory history.. ...Show Less
