The Huntsville Museum of Art
The Huntsville Museum of Art is excited to announce the Accessible Art Works (AAW), a program developed by the Education Department in collaboration with people with disabilities. To date, AAW comprises two programs - one for people with vision impairment, low vision and blind, the other is specific to Deaf/Hard of Hearing. Each session will allow an assistant or companion to attend with the workshop participant. The Accessible Art Program gives one the opportunity to experience a docent led private tour of specific art pieces from a current exhibit, followed by an art making session led by a trained instructor. Accessible Art Works sessions are offered on a monthly basis year round. The sessions for the Blind/Low Vision will be verbally descriptive and contain tactile components. The Deaf/Hard of Hearing session will have an ASL Qualified Interpreter during the tour and the art making as well. We are pleased to offer the Accessible Art Workshop free of charge to participants and a companion thanks to a generous grant from the Lowe Foundation and a partnership with the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind (AIDB). It is strongly recommended that attendees pre-register for each session as they fill up quickly. Sign up online or by contacting Candace Bean, Education Associate at cbean@hsvmuseum.org or 256-535-4350 ext. 223 to participate in the session or to learn more. The sessions meet from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Lunch is scheduled between 12:00-12:30 p.m. after each session. The HMA is committed to advancing a diverse and inclusive space and community by creating and implementing accessibility initiatives. We believe art and public spaces should be accessible to all. AAW represents an AAW-some opportunity to support this objective. Check back soon for upcoming art sessions!

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and Staff, please join us in celebrating Lil Parton’s life and the 23 years of dedicated service she gave not only to our beloved Museum, but also to our entire city. On June 19th, Lil passed away after a brief illness, and we wish to honor her memory and show our deep gratitude to her family for her tireless devotion, loyalty and steadfast commitment to the Museum, given so generously over the many years. To continue Lil’s legacy in perpetuity, her family and I are establishing the Lil Parton Endowment for Programs and Exhibitions. We look forward to raising $75,000 to solidify Lil’s legacy at the Museum. The annual interest earned from this Endowment will be applied to a Program/Exhibition each year, with recognition given to her fund. We could not think of a more fitting way to honor Lil’s memory here at the Museum. Lil had been the Museum’s emotional pillar for so many of our members, Gala, Guild, Board members, and staff during the course of these 23 years. Lil was always there for us – now I ask that we are there for her family by showing your appreciation with a generous gift to the Lil Parton Endowment for Programs and Exhibitions. Update: On January 24, 2019, Lil's niece and another longtime employee and friend of the Museum, Anita Kimbrough, passed away after a battle with ALS. Anita dedicated 15 years of exceptional service to our beloved Museum and was the daughter of the late Linda Berry, who also worked at the Museum in different capacities for 18 years. At the request of Anita’s family, donations made in her name will be applied toward the same Endowment. We wish to honor Anita’s memory and show our deep gratitude to the family of Anita, Linda, and Lil for their steadfast commitment to the Museum over the many years. My heartfelt THANK YOU for assisting us in the establishment of the Lil Parton Endowment for Programs and Exhibitions, where the spirit of these women shall remain with us and our Museum forever. With gratitude, Christopher Madkour Executive Director

The engaging works of this master watercolorist from Tampa, FL encompass portraits, landscapes and still lifes in the time-honored realist tradition. In addition to watercolor, Mitchell is accomplished in other media including egg tempera, oil and pastel. His reputation hinges largely on his superb craftsmanship, the emotional depth of his work, his avoidance of facile sentimentality, and his skilled sense of formal design. Mitchell engages with Black Identity by drawing his subjects mainly from African American culture. Of his preferred subject matter, he notes, “Artists are observers of life, and it is natural that I would first gravitate to the space which I occupy. The neighborhoods I was raised in were segregated. Most of my teachers were Black. Churches I attended were Black, so it is natural for me as an artist to create works that reflect my own personal experience.” 24 pages plus cover. 16 illustrations. **Shipping and handling are INCLUDED in the cost of the catalogue.

In 2017, the Museum acquired the historic Portrait of Ethel Waters, created by well-known artist, Luigi Lucioni. HMA Executive Director, Christopher J. Madkour, and Luigi Lucioni Historian, Dr. Stuart Embury, heard of the painting and began taking measures to track down its whereabouts. When the two traced it to a private residence in 2016, they learned the family had plans to auction the painting off in the coming months. The owner graciously allowed the Huntsville Museum of Art to display Ethel Waters in the exhibition, American Romantic: The Art of Luigi Lucioni, where it was viewed by the public for the first time since 1942. The Museum successfully negotiated the purchase of Portrait of Ethel Waters and, thanks in large part to the generosity of the Huntsville community, Lucioni's Portrait of Ethel Waters now has a new home at the Huntsville Museum of Art where it will be made accessible for public viewing. This book, Art and Soul: Luigi Lucioni and Ethel Waters - A Friendship, details the lives of Ethel Waters and Luigi Lucioni and illustrates their connection through their creativity. The book is 29-pages long. **Shipping and handling are INCLUDED in the cost of the catalogue.
