    Hiroshige’s Tokaido: The Ordinary and the Extraordinary on the Road in Early Nineteenth-Century Japan | Marcia Yonemoto

    Taking advantage of the Muscarelle Museum of Art’s exhibition of five different versions of Ando Hiroshige’s renowned print series “Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido,” this talk will focus on the artist’s representation of everyday life in the extraordinarily vibrant space that was the Tokaido in the early nineteenth century. The talk will discuss individual prints depicting stops on the famous highway, with particular attention to visual culture, the changing practice of travel, and concepts of space and place in early nineteenth-century Japan.

    The Peak of Renaissance Architectural Production: Building in America in the late Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries | David Brashear

    As the United States became more and more prosperous in the nineteenth century, the expression of its progress in architecture was marked by a devotion to classical architecture. No other country produced more classical and Renaissance-style architecture, during any period, than the U.S. during this period. In this session, we will explore the driving forces behind the classical revival in America, and explore some of the grandest works, designed by great architects including Cass Gilbert, McKim Mead and White, Richard Morris Hunt, Paul Cret, and others.

    A Session on a Sequence of Museums | Im Pei

    Starting with an addition to the Des Moines Art Center in 1968, I.M. Pei embarked upon a sub-career of museum design. With his strong sense of geometric forms, and his attachment to the plasticity of concrete, Pei was selected as the architect of two museums in upstate New York: the Everson Museum in Syracuse and the Johnson Museum at Cornell University. This sequence of three museums served as the resume that earned him the commission for the expansion of the National Gallery in Washington - and the resulting East Wing. With his selection as the designer for the expansion of the Louvre, Pei completed a portfolio of work that had broad impact on the museum world. In this session, we will explore the importance of geometry and form in Pei’s work, and the variety of materials he used to complete these world-renowned projects.

    James Monroe and His Built Environment at Highland | Sara Bon-Harper, P.H.D., Executive Director of James Monroe’s Highland

    Narratives of James Monroe as a modest planter have been furthered by the appearance of his unassuming home, Highland, in Albemarle County, Virginia currently owned by the College of William & Mary. Recent architectural and archaeological research reveals new truths about the house, planned and built with the aid of Monroe’s friend and mentor, Thomas Jefferson. This understanding of the property sheds new light on James Monroe and his social and political aspirations. This session will explore the property through new research, and discuss emerging narratives about the fifth U.S. President.
