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.

lecture

Science on Tap in Saratoga Springs, 6-8 p.m., The Parting Glass, 40-42 Lake Ave., Saratoga Springs. Sustainable Saratoga, the Environmental Studies and Sciences Program at Skidmore College and Saratoga Performing Arts Center invite you to join us for the next Science on Tap presentation. We have a new location in 2019 — The Parting Glass. Join us for informal talks and discussions led by regional scientists and researchers. Monthly talks will address a diverse array of contemporary scientific research topics and debates. Kristofer Covey, from Skidmore’s Environmental Studies and Sciences Program and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, will be our speaker on Jan. 29. Kris will talk about “Three trillion and counting: What mapping global tree density taught us about science and the popular imagination.” In 2015, our research team developed a map of global tree density. With it came the first robust estimate of the number of trees on earth, more than 3 trillion. We’ll discuss our process, findings and the conversation that ensued in the popular media. What can this project tell us about the Earth system, the pursuit of science and the way society interacts with scientific knowledge? And, what’s left to count? Admission is free and all ages are welcome. Plan to arrive by 6 p.m. to get settled so the talk can start promptly at 6:30 p.m. For more information, go to www.sustainablesaratoga.org/science-on-tap/
