The arrival of July and August in Gainesville
drives some folks inside to air-conditioned
comfort and some to North Carolina and other
cool, mountainous regions. Some of us, on the
other hand, welcome the intense light and heat
of North Central Florida and simply cool off
with a dip in one of the region's crystal-clear
springs or the neighborhood pool. If you are in
town and enjoy being outdoors this time of year, ..
a stroll around the Cultural Plaza will introduce
you to several outdoor sculptures that enliven
the grounds around the Harn.

Jonathan Borofsky's towering Hammering Man,
a kinetic sculpture of gently rusted corten
steel, is a signature work at the Harn Museum
and draws the fascinated attention of visitors
young and old through its monumentality and
movement. Nearby, Stacked Chairs, a newly ''
installed sculpture by University of Florida ----
professor Celeste Roberge, also attracts :--
considerable interest as visitors puzzle over the
surreal juxtaposition of rough stones with stylish
contemporary plastic chairs. Later when you
venture inside to the museum's Cofrin Pavilion, .. ,..
several other sculptures by Roberge will enhance .. '
your appreciation of the way she uses materials .. ,r 'i.. .'', ~s't
and forms to explore ideas.

Four abstract geometric sculptures by Jane Manus, a Palm Beach-based sculptor, are installed on the
north (Hull Road), east (main entrance) and south sides of the Harn, where their bold forms and angles
complement the museum's architecture. In fact, the monumental red sculpture visible from Hull Road
is titled Homage to Al. It specifically references elements in the work of architect Alfred Browning
Parker, an alumnus and visiting professor at UF and a family friend of Manus, who grew up in a house
Parker designed.

The most recent change to the selection of outdoor sculpture at the
Cultural Plaza is the reappearance of Peter Reginato's Big Jeep, which
previously occupied the spot now held by Homage to Al. In its new
location, the colorful, energetic and humorous Big Jeep welcomes
visitors to the Cultural Plaza as they make their way to the Harn,
the Florida Museum of Natural History or the Phillips Center
for the Performing Arts. The sculptor Reginato is a big fan
of "Popeye" cartoons. Other fans of "Popeye" may recall
Eugene the Jeep, a dog-like character with a bulbous red nose,
and find visual references to him in this whimsical abstract

One of the goals of the Ham's strategic plan is "to work with
Cultural Plaza partners to make the plaza a destination for the
experience and enjoyment of art, culture and nature." Outdoor
sculpture is one way that we seek to enrich your experience and
heighten your enjoyment of the Cultural Plaza. If it's too hot for you
now, I will meet you outside in the fall!

Voicing Indigenous ARTifacts: Amazonian Featherwork establishes the cultural and historical context for body ornaments that can
be viewed as both artifacts and works of art. The exhibition showcases nine spectacular examples of indigenous Amazonian
featherwork objects from the Florida Museum of Natural History Amazonian Collection. The exhibition features headdresses,
masks, necklaces and other body ornaments constructed from the feathers of nine species of birds and other materials from
the rainforest of Brazil. In Amazonian societies, the vibrantly colored ornaments embellish and extend the body, defining the
"social skin" that endows the individual with a collective identity on multiple levels.

In presenting this selection of objects, the exhibition also acknowledges the plight of endangered species used for the
production of the objects on display. Voicing Indigenous ARTifacts seeks to educate audiences about the issues of their
appropriate use in indigenous contexts and the problem of illegal exportation.

Sonia Duin, a Ph.D. candidate studying in the UF anthropology department, is the guest curator of the exhibition. Dr.
Susan Milbrath, curator of Latin American art and archeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History, is the faculty
consultant working with Susan Cooksey of the Harn Museum. The exhibition is made possible by the Dr. Madelyn M. ,
Lockhart Endowment for Focus Exhibitions.

of American Abstraction
Through September 6, 2009
Rediscovering Slobodkina: A Pioneer of American Abstraction is a
major retrospective celebrating the life and work of Esphyr Slobodkina
(1908 2002), a pioneer in the development of abstract art and a
founding member of the American Abstract Artists group. Born in
Siberia and raised in remote industrial outposts, Slobodkina first
learned design from her mother, a dressmaker. Later she studied at
New York's National Academy of Design. Organized to coincide with
the centennial of Slobodkina's birth, the exhibition spans the artist's
entire career, ranging from her early artistic efforts of the 1920s to her
final sculpture, completed in 2001 at age 92. The exhibition includes
more than 60 paintings, drawings and mixed media constructions that
reflect Slobodkina's unique style based in collage and assemblage.
Rediscovering Slobodkina is organized by the Heckscher Museum of
Art, Huntington, N.Y., in association with the Slobodkina Foundation.
The exhibition is made possible locally by an anonymous donor with
Kehinde Wiley additional support from the Eloise R. Chandler Program Endowment.

Through July 5, 2009
The exhibition showcases the best of the Ham's African collection, one of the largest
African art collections in the Southeast, drawing attention to some recent acquisitions
not previously exhibited at the Harn. The exhibition emphasizes the historical and
geographical diversity and the range of mediums now well-represented in the collection,
including wood sculpture, masquerades, ceramics, textiles, metalwork (including
jewelry) and architectural elements. The exhibition also focuses on works by identified
artists or hands, including works by Osei Bonsu, Ubah of Usufoia, Olowe of Ise and
Agbonbiofe Adesina. The exhibition is made possible by the Harn Program Endowment.

Between the Beads: Reading African Beadwork
Through July 26, 2009
The exhibition focuses on the many ways that African beadwork "speaks" in a visually
coded language to convey thoughts about personal relationships, family ties, wealth,
religious beliefs, and social and political standing. Between the Beads illuminates the
historical and cultural contexts of bead use, meaning and production, showing how
beads of many materials, colors, sizes and shapes have embellished the human body
and have been used in sculptural displays. The exhibition showcases approximately 100
works, including personal adornment, masks and sculpture from the museum's collection
and private collections. The exhibition is the result of collaboration between Curator of
African Art Susan Cooksey and Assistant Professor of Art History Dr. Victoria Rovine.
Students in Rovine's Clothing and Textiles in Africa class conducted research about the
objects in the exhibition. Their interpretive text is used in Between the Beads and featured
on the exhibition Web site, which was developed with the UF Digital Library Center;
Katerie Gladdys, assistant professor of digital media; Lourdes Santamaria Wheeler, digital
production supervisor; and Katherine McGonigle, digital media graduate student and Har
Museum of Art intern. You may visit the Web site at www.harn.ufl.edu/beadwork. The
exhibition is made possible by a gift from a generous donor with additional support from
the Dr. Madelyn M. Lockhart Endowment for Focus Exhibitions.

Momentum: Contemporary Art from the Harn Collection
Through August 2, 2009
Momentum explores the notion of time as it is expressed in contemporary art, focusing
on enduring traditions, changing cultures and radical breaks. The exhibition builds on
ideas of time introduced by the French Annales School in the mid and late 20th century
Advocates of the school suggested that history and time, including geological history and
the more immediate time of singular events, unfolded in different modes and at different
speeds. Thirty photographs by Andy Warhol are featured in the exhibition. These works
are a part of a recent gift of 150 of the artist's original Polaroid photographs and gelatin
silver prints from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The exhibition is
made possible locally by the Talking Phone Book with additional support from the 150th
Anniversary Cultural Plaza Endowment.

Landscape Perspectives: Highlights from the Photography Collection
Through August 30, 2009
This selection of photographs, dated from the 1860s to recent years, focuses on the
collection's growing strength of landscape photographs, which celebrate the beauty of
the American landscape and explore how human presence has transformed and often
threatened our natural environment. The exhibition encompasses a selection that is as
varied as the terrain that the photographs depict. They range from early photographs
by F. J. Haynes of the spectacular Yellowstone landscape to a recent composite view by
Mark Klett, showing how Tenaya Lake in Yosemite has been viewed and reinterpreted by
numerous photographers during the past 150 years. The exhibition is made possible by the
Sidney Knight Foundation.

Uncommon Glazes: American Art Pottery, 1880 1950
Through September 13, 2009
Uncommon Glazes: American Art Pottery, 1880 1950 celebrates the beauty, variety
and innovation of artistic ceramics made in America from the late 19th to the mid 20th
centuries. The period of industrial growth following the Civil War led to an ever growing
middle class who wanted beautiful and well-made ceramics at affordable prices. Art
pottery-pottery used for decorating and not for any practical function-played an
important role in the decoration of middle-class homes in America during the late 19th and
early 20th centuries. This exhibition presents 45 examples by the leading art potters of the
period, such as Rookwood, Wheatley, Roseville, Weller and Newcomb. These examples are
drawn from several private collections, most notably that of Dr. Max Nickerson, a University
of Florida herpetologist who has acquired American art pottery for the last 40 years, and
the Two Red Roses Foundation. The exhibition is organized by the Harn Museum of Art and
made possible by Jack and Eileen Smith with additional support from the Eloise R. Chandler
Program Endowment.

The Harn Museum's Asian art collection is divided into three
geographically defined sub-collections: Chinese art, Japanese
and Korean art, and Indian, Himalayan and Southeast Asian
art. This ongoing exhibition presents a selection of significant
works from all three sub-collections representing a broad range
of historical periods and genres. Ceramics and sculpture are
especially prominent in the displays, which also include bronzes,
jades, lacquers, cloisonne enamels and paintings. The objects
on view represent only a fraction of the Harn Museum's total
Asian collection, which is one of the largest and finest Asian art
collections in the southeastern United States. New works of art
are periodically rotated into the exhibition to keep it fresh and

Art for All Occasions: Collectors in China, Japan and Korea is an
installation composed of exquisite works from the Har Museum
of Art's Asian art holdings and loans from distinguished local
collections. The installation presents views about how traditional
collectors of Asian art gathered, studied and lived with their works
of art. Organized into three distinct yet interrelated sections,
Art for All Occasions juxtaposes various types of art to explore
collecting activities in China, Japan and Korea. Whether the work
is an ancient bronze, fine porcelain or a painting, the common
theme that emerges is that collectors thoughtfully interacted with
their collected works during their lifetimes. The exhibition is made
possible by the Eloise R. Chandler Program Endowment.

Highlights from the oden Collection
This exhibition presents highlights from the museum's holdings
of modern American, European and Latin American art spanning
the mid-19th century through the first half of the 20th century.
Featured works include landscapes, city views, mural studies,
portraits, figural studies and sculpture by more than 40 artists. In
addition, the exhibition includes a special area devoted to works
on paper, such as charcoal and pencil drawings, pastels and
watercolors. Among the artists represented are 19th-century artists
Claude Monet, Theodore Robinson and Auguste Rodin, and 20th
century artists Milton Avery, George Bellows, Charles Burchfield,
Suzy Frelinghuysen, Albert Gallatin, Childe Hassam, Gaston
Lachaise, Reginald Marsh, Georgia O'Keeffe, Raphael Soyer and
Hale Woodruff. The exhibition is made possible by the Eloise R.
Chandler Program Endowment.

The museum has broken ground on the new wing for Asian art, and this is cause for celebration as we anticipate the opening in spring 2011. Soon you will start
to see the new building rising from the ground. This new addition is heralded and perceived with awe during the economic downturn, and it stands as a true
symbol of optimism.

Gifts that make buildings possible are spectacular. They are inspired, and they inspire. Gifts that endow curatorial positions, lecture series, publications, programs,
research, art acquisitions and conservation fill these spaces and further inspire. Then there are the gifts that shore up the cost of exhibitions, programs and day-to
day needs-the essential work of the museum. That means gifts that are very large and ones that are very small are requisite in the Ham's fundraising goals. All
gifts are inspiring.

When preparing this message, I overheard a request to the business office for a donation receipt from a school group visiting the museum. I immediately went to
acknowledge this philanthropy. Duval Elementary School students, along with their chaperones, were busily engaged with Harn docents, and the energy level at
the museum was palpable. A gift of $300 was given in appreciation for the museum and its work and for the opportunity to bring these curious ones to visit. How
appreciative I was for the value placed on this experience by the adults and for the model of giving set for these students.

Such outright and visible expressions of success-buildings, acquisitions,
endowments-are the good fortune of this university and its community.
There are so many gifts of great treasure, given so freely. What happens inside
these spectacular spaces requires constant fundraising support. Whether you
give millions of dollars, hundreds of dollars, or a few dollars, your gift is given
generously and received gratefully. .

We know you will continue to follow the growth of the building. Join in and
support the growth of what goes on inside the building. Make a gift to the
campaign-property, appreciated stock, a planned gift. Call me. Let's inspire!
