Leadership Los Gatos 2016-17

Leadership Los Gatos is a 10-month program done in conjunction with the Town of Los Gatos to promote participation and a greater understanding of the workings of our Town and its part in the larger community.

The mission of the program is to engage, educate and
develop service-oriented individuals who live and/or work in Los Gatos for leadership roles in community and neighborhood organizations, schools, places of worship and Town government.

The program includes 10 half-day sessions beginning in the fall and ending in early June. There is a tuition fee for the program. Many employers will often sponsor their employees in this community program.

Because Leadership Los Gatos strives to have each incoming class reflect a cross-section of the community, applications will be screened to balance professional and community interests. Class size is limited to ensure quality class sections and full participation.

Exhibit | Cement Prairie: The History and Legacy of the 1952 American Indian Urban Relocation Program

The Museum will be closed Thursday November 24th, December 24th, 25th, 31st and January 1st.  

Open from Nov 4, 2016 - Jun 25, 2017

Cement Prairie is an exhibition that explores the genesis, rollout and impact of the American Indian Relocation Program initiated by the US government in 1952. This significant yet little-known chapter in American Indian migration history will be viewed through a collection of personal stories, ephemera, primary source documents and support programming. The exhibition will focus specifically on the San Jose, California relocatee community and those who followed in their footsteps to the urban communities. The exhibit will examine the program's successes and failures, the rise of Indian activism in the 1960s, and how today's Pan-Indian community has adapted and preserves its native culture in the new "urban rez."

In the 1950s, America's general perceptions of Indians was formed by cultural and historical stereotypes of "the noble savage" wearing a feather headdress, living in a teepee, kidnapping women and children; or the Lone Ranger's stoic sidekick Tonto, characterized in popular literature. While these indelible images permeated American culture, the reality presented a stark contrast. The Indian reservation system became another failed attempt by the U.S. government to solve the "Indian Problem," and as a result, many Indians suffered in poverty and cultures began to erode.

In an attempt to address this problem, the US government created the Indian Urban Relocation Program in 1952 to move Native Americans to major metropolitan cities to improve the community's standard of living. In its first phase, an estimated 100,000 Indians left their reservations and settled in cities across the U.S. Today, over 70 percent of Native Americans live in urban centers, marking a significant migration period that has forever changed the Native American community and culture.o

"We are privileged to have this opportunity to work directly with our local Indian community and offer a forum where they can tell this little-known but important chapter in contemporary Native American history, " said Amy Long, NUMU history curator.

"The San Jose Indian community has long-attempted to create a visual platform to tell this story. We are very excited to partner with NUMU to make this dream a reality, explains exhibition advisor, Al Cross, Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara, North Dakota.

In conjunction with this exhibition, NUMU is proud to present, Back From Extinction, an exhibition that focuses on the San Francisco Bay Area Native Indian tribe, the Muwekma Ohlone, and its struggle to gain federal recognition and its efforts to counter the myth of its extinction.

Cement Prairie is supported in part by San Jose State University's Anthropology Department, the Muwekma Ohlone tribe, the National Archives, The Bancroft Library, the Indian Health Center, Bay Area photographer, Ilka Hartmann, and notable Bay Area American Indian community members.

This significant yet little-known chapter in American Indian migration history will be viewed through a collection of personal stories, ephemera, primary source documents and support programming. The exhibition will focus specifically on the San Jose, California relocatee community and those who followed in their footsteps to the urban communities. The exhibit will examine the program's successes and failures, the rise of Indian activism in the 1960s, and how today's Pan-Indian community has adapted and preserves its native culture in the new "urban rez."

In the 1950s, America's general perceptions of Indians was formed by cultural and historical stereotypes of "the noble savage" wearing a feather headdress, living in a teepee, kidnapping women and children; or the Lone Ranger's stoic sidekick Tonto, characterized in popular literature. While these indelible images permeated American culture, the reality presented a stark contrast. The Indian reservation system became another failed attempt by the U.S. government to solve the "Indian Problem," and as a result, many Indians suffered in poverty and cultures began to erode.

In an attempt to address this problem, the US government created the Indian Urban Relocation Program in 1952 to move Native Americans to major metropolitan cities to improve the community's standard of living. In its first phase, an estimated 100,000 Indians left their reservations and settled in cities across the U.S. Today, over 70 percent of Native Americans live in urban centers, marking a significant migration period that has forever changed the Native American community and culture.o

"We are privileged to have this opportunity to work directly with our local Indian community and offer a forum where they can tell this little-known but important chapter in contemporary Native American history, " said Amy Long, NUMU history curator.

"The San Jose Indian community has long-attempted to create a visual platform to tell this story. We are very excited to partner with NUMU to make this dream a reality, explains exhibition advisor, Al Cross, Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara, North Dakota.

In conjunction with this exhibition, NUMU is proud to present, Back From Extinction, an exhibition that focuses on the San Francisco Bay Area Native Indian tribe, the Muwekma Ohlone, and its struggle to gain federal recognition and its efforts to counter the myth of its extinction.

Cement Prairie is supported in part by San Jose State University's Anthropology Department, the Muwekma Ohlone tribe, the National Archives, The Bancroft Library, the Indian Health Center, Bay Area photographer, Ilka Hartmann, and notable Bay Area American Indian community members.

The exhibit will examine the program's successes and failures, the rise of Indian activism in the 1960s, and how today's Pan-Indian community has adapted and preserves its native culture in the new "urban rez."

In the 1950s, America's general perceptions of Indians was formed by cultural and historical stereotypes of "the noble savage" wearing a feather headdress, living in a teepee, kidnapping women and children; or the Lone Ranger's stoic sidekick Tonto, characterized in popular literature. While these indelible images permeated American culture, the reality presented a stark contrast. The Indian reservation system became another failed attempt by the U.S. government to solve the "Indian Problem," and as a result, many Indians suffered in poverty and cultures began to erode.

In an attempt to address this problem, the US government created the Indian Urban Relocation Program in 1952 to move Native Americans to major metropolitan cities to improve the community's standard of living. In its first phase, an estimated 100,000 Indians left their reservations and settled in cities across the U.S. Today, over 70 percent of Native Americans live in urban centers, marking a significant migration period that has forever changed the Native American community and culture.o

"We are privileged to have this opportunity to work directly with our local Indian community and offer a forum where they can tell this little-known but important chapter in contemporary Native American history, " said Amy Long, NUMU history curator.

"The San Jose Indian community has long-attempted to create a visual platform to tell this story. We are very excited to partner with NUMU to make this dream a reality, explains exhibition advisor, Al Cross, Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara, North Dakota.

In conjunction with this exhibition, NUMU is proud to present, Back From Extinction, an exhibition that focuses on the San Francisco Bay Area Native Indian tribe, the Muwekma Ohlone, and its struggle to gain federal recognition and its efforts to counter the myth of its extinction.

Cement Prairie is supported in part by San Jose State University's Anthropology Department, the Muwekma Ohlone tribe, the National Archives, The Bancroft Library, the Indian Health Center, Bay Area photographer, Ilka Hartmann, and notable Bay Area American Indian community members.

Abstracts From Life: Exploring the Bay Area Figurative Movement

Open March 24, 2017 - September 10, 2107
New Museum Los Gatos presents Abstracts From Life, an exhibition that explores the Bay Area Figurative movement, past and present.

Artists have studied the human figure throughout the ages. One regional expression of this practice is Bay Area Figurative, an art movement that emerged from California mid-20th century abstraction and continues as an enduring tradition. This group exhibition investigates the genesis of the Bay Area Figurative movement and features several generations of artists, including contemporary artists working locally and internationally.

The exhibition includes selections from private collections, galleries, the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, and the Oliveira Administrative Trust. Featured paintings, drawings and sculpture include works by: Michael Azgour, Joan Brown, Suhas Bhujbal, Linda Christensen, Richard Diebenkorn, Dennis Hare, Mitchell Johnson, Brigitte McReynolds, Nathan Oliveira, Joan Savo, Jennifer Pochinski, William Rushton, Terry St. John and James Weeks. Interactive activities that allow visitors to create their own figures will also be presented in the exhibition gallery.

“In the spirit of NUMU’s mission to tell stories of the Bay Area that reach the greater community and beyond in scope, innovation and interest, this exhibition highlights an important art movement that helped distinguish our region.” Says art curator, Marianne McGrath. “The locally connected and globally relevant artists in the exhibition have made significant contributions to art history and contemporary art.”

*Members Reception for Exhibition Opening: Abstracts From Life

This evening is an opportunity for NUMU members to gather and celebrate with other NUMU supporters, exhibition sponsors, exhibiting artists and NUMU curators. A no-host bar will available at the museum.

Elizabeth Zanzinger is rapidly becoming one of the bay area's most popular young masters. Her workshops fill quickly and create a special occasion for the local art community. Elizabeth is highly skilled in fine realism to painterly impressionism with commanding virtuosity. Two models in two days with Elizabeth will be a weekend to remember.

Isaac Babel and the Russian Revolution: Lecture and Film

A film and lecture about how one man challenged rising totalitarianism. 
 
Professor Elizabeth McGuire of Cal State East Bay will talk about Isaac Babel's life and death. A life spanned some of the most dramatic, creative, and destructive moments in modern history, including the Russian Civil War, the avant-garde internationalist Soviet 1920s, and Stalin's 1930s. This talk will offer historic context for Babel's fiction, and for the documentary Finding Babel.
 
Finding Babel (2015), director: David Novack
The subversive masterpieces of Russian-Ukrainian writer Isaac Babel challenged the reality of life under rising totalitarianism, and led to his arrest and execution in 1940. In Finding Babel, Andrei Malaev-Babel confronts complex traces of a turbulent history that echo in his grandfather's writing and in the conflicts of today's Ukraine and Russia. Babel's fiction is woven into Andrei's search with ethereal animation that puts the viewer, like Babel's readers, between fantasy and reality.
 
Elizabeth McGuire is a historian of global communism who teaches courses in modern Europe, modern Russia, and modern China.  Her first book, The Sino-Soviet Romance: How Chinese Communists Fell in Love with the Russian Revolution, is forthcoming with Oxford University Press. She holds an AB honors from Harvard, an MA from Johns Hopkins, and a PhD from UC Berkeley.  2010-2012, Professor McGuire was an Academy Scholar at the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies. She loves literature and speaks Russian, French, and Chinese.

Ian Maksin in Concert: Zaria

We invite you to spend an afternoon with an incredible cellist, Ian Maksin!

Ian Maksin has gained international acclaim for his beautiful tone and distinct style as well as his uniquely charismatic way with the audience. Apart from being recognized as one of the leading classical musicians, Maksin plays jazz, blues, flamenco, rock, R&B, world music, and has taken the cello well outside its conventional scope. He has collaborated with such artists as Andrea Bocelli, P. Diddy, Snoop Dogg and Gloria Estefan. Ian Maksin has also opened for such artists as Sting and his guitarist Dominic Miller.

Born in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, Maksin began playing the cello at age six at the Special School for Gifted Children of the Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory. At age seventeen he came to the United States to attend the Manhattan School of Music in New York City and later became the principal cellist of the New World Symphony, America’s one-of-a-kind training orchestra under direction of maestro Michael Tilson Thomas. During that time he had an opportunity to receive personal mentorship from such artists as Lynn Harrell, Mstislav Rostropovich, Bernard Greenhouse, and many others.

Ian describes his main goal as an artist is “to close the gap between generations and societies through art, and make the beauty of cello music accessible to everyone”. Ian Maksin is currently on the artist roster of the Swiss Global Artistic Foundation and plays on a 1780 Giacomo Fiorillo cello on a private loan.?
