The Currier Connection – Community Roots in Manchester

 

Birch Hill is proud to partner with the Currier for Medieval to Metal: The Art and Evolution of the Guitar

 

The residents at Birch Hill are your neighbors in Manchester.  We are connected and rooted to the community through number of organizations with partnership, donation and volunteer effort.

Some of our residents are members of the Currier Museum and others volunteer as docents in the galleries or touring the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Zimmerman House.  This cultural and intellectual connection is vital to the history and future of Birch Hill as well as all of the RiverWoods Group affiliates.

 This unique exhibition runs through September 22, 2019 and features fun events including a Blues and BBQ after hours and end of Summer brunch featuring musician and storyteller, Victor Coelho.

About the Exhibit:

Highlighting the single most enduring icon in American history, Medieval to Metal: The Art and Evolution of the Guitar, explores all aspects of the world’s most popular instrument. The exhibition covers the guitar’s history beginning in the Middle Ages with European and Asian instruments such as the oud and lute to its position as a key accompaniment for traveling performers, its pivotal role in blues, country western music, and rock ‘n roll, ultimately serving as a catalyst for popular culture. Visitors will experience the artistry, history, design, and cultural influence of the guitar. Along with 40 distinct instruments that showcase the rare and antique to the wildly popular and innovative, Medieval to Metal includes dozens of photographs and illustrations that depict significant musicians and instruments of the last century.

Medieval to Metal: The Art and Evolution of the Guitar is an exciting and engaging experience that gives visitors the opportunity to interact with the guitar from the perspective of history, evolution, and design – and the lasting music it has created.
