Clybourne Park

Arts/Entertainment

Clybourne Park portrays fictional events set immediately after A Raisin in the Sun and fifty years later. The play is loosely based on historical events that took place in the city of Chicago. Act One takes place in 1959, as white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.

A Raisin in the Sun

Arts/Entertainment

The New York Times calls this “the play that changed American theater forever.” In this play, Hansberry - a pioneering, female, African-American playwright - covers issues of racism, discrimination, generational clashes, civil rights, and the women’s movement through the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family. The Younger family’s heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.

Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright

Arts/Entertainment

Stanton MacDonald-Wright’s “Haiga Portfolio” (1965-1966) blends Eastern and Western
influences, pairing vibrant modernist paintings with haikus written by some of Japan’s most influential
poets.The term “haiga” refers to a style of Japanese painting by haiku poets, whose poems are known for their
brevity and simplicity. Each of the ten prints that compose the “Haiga Portfolio” have a corresponding
haiku.The “Haiga Portfolio” exemplifies the 20 th century modernist movement Synchromism, cofounded in
1913 by MacDonald-Wright and Morgan Russell. The movement sought to arrange color in the same
way that sound is composed in music and is considered the first American avant-guard movement to be
accepted internationally. Seventy-five years old at the time of the portfolio’s creation, MacDonald-
Wright employed the use of energetic, swirling shapes coupled with dense, vivid colors orchestrated in
the modernist style and the rhythm of Synchromism.

The movement sought to arrange color in the same way that sound is composed in music and is considered the first American avant-guard movement to be accepted internationally. Seventy-five years old at the time of the portfolio’s creation, MacDonald-Wright employed the use of energetic, swirling shapes coupled with dense, vivid colors orchestrated in the modernist style and the rhythm of Synchromism.

Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright

Exhibition

Stanton MacDonald-Wright’s “Haiga Portfolio” (1965-1966) blends Eastern and Western influences, pairing vibrant modernist paintings with haikus written by some of Japan’s most influential poets.
The term “haiga” refers to a style of Japanese painting by haiku poets, whose poems are known for their brevity and simplicity. Each of the ten prints that compose the “Haiga Portfolio” have a corresponding haiku.
The “Haiga Portfolio” exemplifies the 20th century modernist movement Synchromism, cofounded in 1913 by MacDonald-Wright and Morgan Russell. The movement sought to arrange color in the same way that sound is composed in music and is considered the first American avant-guard movement to be accepted internationally. Seventy-five years old at the time of the portfolio’s creation, MacDonald-Wright employed the use of energetic, swirling shapes coupled with dense, vivid colors orchestrated in the modernist style and the rhythm of Synchromism.
