Your digital docent to the Chadwick family collections and events
Lecture on : The Nelson Man o' bar SVA Theater 333 West 23rd Street N.Y. Tuesday, October 18th 7pm 2011
Jimbo Blachly and Lytle Shaw, editors of The Chadwick Family Papers, discuss the Nelson Man o' bar, an occupiable scale model of Admiral Nelson's HMS Victory that was long a fixture at Chadwick Manor. At once a theatrical stage set for recitations of Nelson's death speech, and a nautically-themed pub, the Man o' bar was thought lost until its recent rediscovery in a remote storage unit belonging to the Vitoria and Albert Museum -Mumbai. The Discussion includes the circumstances of the Man o' bar's rediscovery, the saga of its passage back to the United States, and its singular place within the Chadwicks' larger nautical collections. Gloria Kury, whose Periscope Publishing brought out The Chadwick Family Papers; A Brief Public Glimpse , moderates the lecture: artist Steve Dibenedetto is a respondent. Presented by the BFA Visual and Critical Studies Department.
