Hello RobbinsList Readers…

Before the day ends, I must sing the praises of the Yale Center for British Art! I attended an event today that included a tour of the new exhibition of Recent Gifts and Acquisitions. First of all, the gallery is such a soothing environment to visit during a busy work day, secondly seeing the exhibit on a guided tour provides such a wealth of knowledge and information that I wonder why I ever go through a gallery or museum alone! The YCBA has a great schedule of events lined up, social function tie-ins, programs for teens and kids and oh dear Lord do they have an enchanting gift shop! I’ve said it before and I’ll obviously be saying it again right now… Visit the museum and gallery gift shops in New Haven! You can shop in the YCBA gift shop without going through the museum, there’s an entrance on High Street. Gifts for all ages, and all interests, modern, traditional, funny, serious, practical and impractical… if I liked my friends and family more I would have been shopping in there all day! – I kid, I kid… Consider signing up for mailing lists for these New Haven gems, or at least check their websites every now and then.

Paul Mellon’s founding gifts to the Yale Center for British Art included important early nineteenth-century publications illustrated with some of the first paper-print photographs ever made. These publications served as the core of a small and somewhat miscellaneous collection of photographs, which grew very slowly over time. In recent years, however, through a combination of important purchases and major gifts, the Center’s photographic collection has developed into a serious representation of this important aspect of Britain’s visual culture.

This exhibition shows the depth and richness of the expanding photography collection, from the birth of photography, with calotypes by William Henry Fox Talbot (1800–1877) and Calvert Richard Jones (1802–1877), to the work of contemporary photographers, such as Martin Parr (b. 1952) and Anna Fox (b. 1961). The display celebrates the extraordinary gifts of Graham Howe, Charles Isaacs and Carol Nigro, Dr. and Mrs. Charles Isaacs Sr., Dr. J. Patrick and Patricia Kennedy, Hans Kraus Jr., and others who have enabled the Center to take this major step forward.

Over the last years, the Center’s collections of approximately 2,000 paintings and 60,000 prints and drawings, given by Paul Mellon, also have been augmented by contributions from generous patrons who have donated works not only from the historic past but also from the last decades of the twentieth century and the first decades of the twenty-first. In this exhibition, a selection of recent and promised gifts to the Center highlights outstanding works, both figurative and abstract, from British pop in the 1960s to the current moment. Major gifts and promised gifts from James Bartos, Joan and Henry Binder, Barbara Hoerner, Samuel and Gabrielle Lurie, Susan and Fredric Finkelstein, Robert Priseman and Ally Seabrook, Driek and Michael Zirinsky, as well as purchases made with funds from John O’Brien and Friends of British Art form the center of this display.

After helping create the “Jersey Shore” sound with the Asbury Jukes he became a founding member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, and went on to become a successful solo artist in his own right recording and performing solo with his band Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul. In 2017 he released his first new album in over 15 years returning to his Rhythm and Blues roots entitled “Soulfire” which Rolling Stone named one of its “Best Albums of 2017.” He has recently released “Soulfire LIVE!” a 3 disc CD box set with a 7 Vinyl box set and 2 disc Blu-Ray to be released this February, recorded live during the “Soulfire Tour,” his first solo tour in over 20 years.

He Arranged and Produced “Introducing Darlene Love”, the critically acclaimed album for the legendary Darlene Love, star of the Oscar winning documentary “Twenty Feet From Stardom”.

In 1985, Van Zandt formed Artists United Against Apartheid and wrote “Sun City,” a song featuring over 50 major recording artists protesting the Apartheid system and considered by many political experts to be one of the fatal blows to Apartheid, leading to Nelson Mandela being freed only a few years later. He has twice been honored by the United Nations for his political activism, including the “Sun City” project and film, and his involvement in “International Peace Day” along with Peter Gabriel. He also established the Solidarity Foundation to promote the sovereignty of indigenous peoples and to foster economic development in harmony with the earth.

Steven also created and produces the first two channels of original content on SiriusXM Satellite Radio, the Underground Garage (Channel 21) and Outlaw Country (Channel 60). In 2006 he launched his record label, Wicked Cool Records, to further support new Rock and Roll.
In 2018 Little Steven and the Disciples of Tour went back on the road with their “Soulfire Teacher Solidarity Tour.” The landmark live tour benefited The Rock and Roll Forever Foundation’s TeachRock program and reached the incredible goal of registering over 18,000 teachers (and counting) to use the TeachRock Music History Curriculum.

Established by Dr. Van Zandt (he gave the commencement speech to the Class of 2017 and received an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from Rutgers University), the Foundation creates education materials that use the history of popular music to create engaging, multicultural lesson plans for history, social studies, language arts, music, and science classrooms, all of which are available to educators at NO COST.

It marked the first-ever Rock tour specifically geared towards addressing this crucial societal need. At each stop of the tour, The Rock and Roll Forever Foundation is hosting FREE TeachRock Professional Development Workshops, with educators and a guest who attend also receiving a complimentary ticket to that evening’s concert.

“Music will forever be humanity’s most effective and consistent source of inspiration and motivation, and, we have learned, music turns out to be our most solid common ground for establishing communication between teachers and students which is where education begins.” – Stevie Van Zandt
