The Vibrant Art and Storied History of Ethiopian Icons
This visually stunning exhibition explores the Christian traditions of the East African nation, Ethiopia. It features 60 small-scale icons (approx. 3 by 6 inches) triptychs, larger icons and illuminated manuscripts. There will also be several cast-brass, hand-held, processional/benediction crosses with intricate designs from the Museums collection, as well as some small pendant/pectoral crosses worn by priest as part of their sacred vestments. The Museum has a small collection of icons and stone carved triptych that will be on display. The icons and objects range from the 16th century to the present.

Ethiopian iconography is closely related to the simplified Coptic version of Late Antique and Byzantine Christian art. It is typified by stylized, graphically bold figures with large, almond-shaped, eyes. Colors are usually bright and vivid. The majority of paintings are religious in nature, often decorating church walls and bibles. From the 16th century,

Ethiopia: Keepers of the Lost Ark
Additional times avaialbale: Saturday, Feb 21, 3:00-4:30 p.m.; Thursday, March 19, 5:00-6:30 p.m.; Saturday, April 11, 3:00-4:30 p.m.; Thursday, April 16, 5:00-6:30 p.m.
Ethiopia is the oldest nation in Africa, with a fascinating history extending back thousands of years. It was one of the earliest Christian nations, and developed a unique form of Orthodoxy with roots in the Coptic traditions of Egypt, along with ancient and lasting links to Judaism from the time of King Solomon.

Photojournalist David Adams comes to Ethiopia to seek the origins of an ancient legend that the fabled Ark of the Covenant the golden vessel in which reside the tablets bearing the Ten Commandments -- has been hidden in Ethiopia for nearly 3,000 years. The Ark is sacred to both Jews and Christians; but to Ethiopians, its presence in their country, and the incredible story of how it got there, is central to their faith.

Adams 200-mile trek takes him from Lalibela, city of eleven churches hewn from rock, to Gonder, the Camelot of Africa. He travels by foot, joining thousands of pilgrims who make the journey in the 12 days between Christmas and Epiphany. Along the way he gets caught in a warriors joust, paddles across Lake Tana in a papyrus boat, visits the mighty Tis Isat waterfall that feeds the Blue Nile, partakes in a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, explores ancient churches, and interviews secretive priests. The truth he discovers at the end of his quest for the Lost Ark is not what he expected . . . .

Crystal Trio, Harmonic Glass Ensemble
Crystal Trio musicians Igor Sklyarov, Vladimir Popras and Vladimir Perminov play the Glass Harp, Verrophone and Glass Panflute Bass. They were one of the first professional ensembles to bring back the lost art of creating music from glass. They have astounded audiences worldwide with their virtuosic renditions of well-known classical and popular modern works, and tunes written specifically for glass instruments.

Glass music has been known to many cultures, and enjoyed a popular revival in Europe, Russia and North America in the 18th-19th centuries, enthralling audiences and inspiring composers such as Mozart and Beethoven with its enchanting, ethereal sound. Renowned Austrian psychiatrist Mesmer used the glass harmonica (invented by Benjamin Franklin) to calm patients before examinations. Mesmerizing is an apt description for the effect of glass music.
