Avon Faire Holiday Concert

IMG_2450.JPG

The Noble Maritime Collection is delighted to host a holiday concert by Avon Faire, a female singing group from New York City featuring traditional folk songs in three-part harmony from Celtic regions and the UK. Costumed in dress from medieval times, the ladies will lead the audience in a sing-a-long of holiday favorites like Deck the Halls, as well as perform sea shanties like South Australia, and songs from their debut album Riddles and Love Songs.

Take a step back in time to the days of candlelight and mulled cider, a festive treat for the whole family to enjoy together.

Riddles and Love Songs was released in 2016 and the group completed their second tour of England this summer. A European tour is in the works for the summer of 2018. Tim Carroll of FolkWords UK says, “Listening to these perfectly balanced voices adds an entrancing level of attraction.”

Members of the group include Andriette Redmann, Kath Green, Anna Marie Spallina, and John Rokosny .

Admission $10 in advance, $15 at the door
Doors open at 6:30 PM

Floresheim.png

The Noble Maritime Collection's annual art auction is a Staten Island tradition. Year in and year out, work on the auction block—all of which is donated by artists and art collectors—comprises an exceptional array of artistic mastery.  The 29th Annual John A. Noble Art Auction will be held on Friday, November 10, 2017.  The event begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres—a time to peruse the art on the block, meet the artists, and compare notes with other guests while dining on exceptional cuisine by the museum's great caterer, Catering by Framboise.  Chris Olert will be our witty master of ceremonies, and our expert auctioneer Damon Urban will offer commentary about each piece. Whether you leave with a work of art or not, you'll help support a great cause and encourage the work of fine contemporary artists and craftspeople.

Lecture Series, Week 7 * Staten Island Calamities

Week 7 of The History of Staten Island – Part 2, a seven-session lecture series with Patricia M. Salmon at the Noble Maritime Collection.* 

Staten Island Calamities - Owing to its existence as an island, several devastating maritime accidents have occurred involving Staten Island. As such we will look at the Vanderbilt Landing bridge collapse of 1852; the sinking of the Mohawk yacht in 1876; the Westfield ferry explosion in 1871, and the Northfield ferry accident of 1901. Inland catastrophes that will be examined include the New Street building collapse of 1937; the mid-air plane collision of 1960; and the LNG tank explosion of 1973. How and why these tragedies occurred, who was responsible, and their ultimate effects on the Staten Island community will be analyzed.

Presentations will include a PowerPoint, lecture, video clips, question and answer periods, sources for future research by participants, handouts, and guest speakers.

Individual sessions $10 each; museum members $9 each

*Please note that participation in The History of Staten Island Part 1 is not a requirement for this series.

Week 6 of The History of Staten Island – Part 2, a seven-session lecture series with Patricia M. Salmon at the Noble Maritime Collection.* 

Turrets, Towers, and More: The Historic Landmarks of Staten Island - Many believe that most of the built environment of Staten Island has been destroyed. Actually, a surprising number of breath-taking structures have survived. To celebrate our remaining treasures, we will look at the history of landmarking on Staten Island, while examining such locales as the Saint George/New Brighton and Saint Paul’s Avenue-Stapleton Heights Historic Districts. Individual structures at Sandy Ground, along with Crimson Beech, the Pendleton Cottage, the Dr. Samuel M. Elliott House, the Gustave Mayer House, the Seguine Mansion, and the Seguine-Manee House will also be discussed.

Presentations will include a PowerPoint, lecture, video clips, question and answer periods, sources for future research by participants, handouts, and guest speakers.

Lecture Series, Week 5 * Abandoned Staten Island

Week 5 of The History of Staten Island – Part 2, a seven-session lecture series with Patricia M. Salmon at the Noble Maritime Collection.* 

Abandoned Staten Island - This island was the location for many facilities and institutions from the early 1800s through the 1980s. It was believed that Staten Island had clean air and a healthful environment to benefit the needy, ill, and destitute. What it really had was ample acreage at a cheap price with a close proximity to Manhattan and an available work force. Many of these institutions have ceased to exist and the land they stood on is vacant and abandoned. During this program, we will look at some of these facilities and their existing landscapes. The former Seaman’s Retreat (recently Bayley Seton Hospital), the Farm Colony and Sea View Hospital, the S.R. Smith Infirmary/Staten Island Hospital; and Swinburne and Hoffman Islands will be discussed, as will Staten Island, Fountain, and Trinity Chapel cemeteries. The founding facts about these sites, their history, and their demise will be deliberated.

Presentations will include a PowerPoint, lecture, video clips, question and answer periods, sources for future research by participants, handouts, and guest speakers.

Individual sessions $10 each; museum members $9 each

Lecture Series, Week 4 * Business & Industry on Staten Island - Part 2

Week 4 of The History of Staten Island – Part 2, a seven-session lecture series with Patricia M. Salmon at the Noble Maritime Collection.* 

Business & Industry on Staten Island - An array of products came from Staten Island between the 1810’s and the 1960’s. Everything from beer to bricks to band uniforms. Why was Staten Island chosen as the site for these enterprises? How did the Great Depression and the opening of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge affect these concerns? Where were these businesses? These questions will be answered as we discuss the history of the American Linoleum Company, J.B. King, United States Gypsum, Jewett White Lead, Dean Linseed Oil Company, Ostwald's Uniforms, Unexcelled Fireworks, the DeJonge Paper Company and others. 

Presentations will include a PowerPoint, lecture, video clips, question and answer periods, sources for future research by participants, handouts, and guest speakers.
