“Summer of Love: 50 Years”

record VW Bug v1 small

Dean of University Libraries Curtis Kendrick invites the campus and greater community to get “far out” and “groovy” at our new exhibit, “Summer of Love: 50 Years.”

The exhibit showcases items from our Center for the Study of the 1960s collection that recall an important year in a tumultuous decade.

Viewers will get a glimpse into the past at the social, cultural and political movements that started or were advanced during the year of 1967.

The exhibit features stunning rock concert poster art; books on Psychedelic art and the impact the movement still has on contemporary artists; and books on social activism of the late sixties and how those movements are still alive today.

In Special Collections, the exhibit will feature rare materials from the Libraries’ University Archives that show facets of Binghamton University campus life: activism, academics, the social scene, and groups and clubs. Go back in time and gain an archival perspective of what was happening at the University back in the day.

The exhibit is on view in the Glenn G. Bartle Librarys second floor mezzanine and in Special Collections (North Reading Room).

Library hours.

A grant award for the Max Reinhardt Collection

 

Midsummer 1934 Rehearsal 1

Great news! The South Central Regional Library Council (SCRLC) has awarded a $5,000 Regional Bibliographic Data Bases and Interlibrary Resources Sharing (RBDB) Grant to for the digitization and description of the Max Reinhardt Collection.

Alexander Moissi King Lear 1908 001

Once digitized, the collection will be made available via the  New York Heritage research portal.

The collection documents the life of Max Reinhardt (1873-1943), celebrated theater director and filmmaker, and offers a singular historical record of many aspects in the study of theater and its history—acting, direction, stage design and costume design.

Max Reinhardt 1905 001

To some extent, it also incorporates a documentary record of Reinhardt’s personal Jewish life, as he was forced to flee the Nazis.

Reinhardt is still recognized today for his significant role in the transformation and development of theatre.
