exhibit

Colorama: From the George Eastman Museum, The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren St., Glens Falls. For more than four decades, enormous advertisements displayed in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal affirmed a picturesque notion of everyday American life. The 18-foot-by-60-foot images depicted an idyllic nation: beautiful landscapes, holiday celebrations, world-changing historical events, family road trips and patriotism. This exhibition examines the captivating advertisements, offering insight into America, and the histories of advertising, photography and technology. Thirty-six reproduced images from the George Eastman Museum depict an idealized past for a new generation, and a welcome reintroduction for those who lived through the decades that helped shape photography. Organized by the George Eastman Museum. Exhibit runs through April 14.

From the Vault: Staff Selections, The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren St., Glens Falls. Whitney-Renz and Hoopes galleries. With approximately 4,000 works in The Hyde’s permanent collection, it seems impossible to pick a favorite. But museum staff members — education, administration, security, operations, visitor services, finance and curatorial — have done just that. With selections that vary from prominent artists including Winslow Homer, Pablo Picasso and Elihu Vedder, and significantly more obscure artists such as Greg O’Halloran and the Master of Monte Oliveto, From the Vault provides a deeper look into The Hyde’s collection and insight into the people who do the behind-the-scenes work at the museum. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, closed Mondays, open from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Exhibit runs through March 31.

‘Capturing the Flag,’ 6:30-8:30 p.m., Crandall Public Library, 251 Glen St., Glens Falls. In 2013, in Shelby County v. Holder, the Supreme Court invalidates the part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act requiring certain states to submit changes in voting laws to the Justice Department for approval. Almost immediately, certain states take voter suppression measures such as enacting voter ID laws, redrawing district boundaries, and repealing same-day registration. Three months before the 2016 election, a group of volunteers across the country mobilizes to work on voter protection — to observe elections and to assure that all those who wish to vote are legally allowed to do so. Laverne Berry, Steven Miller and Claire Wright head to North Carolina. What they find at the polls serves as both a warning and a call to action for anyone interested in protecting the “One Man, One Vote” fundamental of our democracy. Dealing with themes that are constantly sensationalized and manipulated by the media — Left vs. Right, North vs. South, Black vs. White — “Capturing the Flag” offers instead deeply personal, often surprising perspectives on the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath.
