John Adams Unbound Exhibit and An Evening with John Adams

February 17, 2010 at 10:45 am 1 comment

The John Adams Unbound exhibit scheduled to appear on campus March 8- April 15. The University Library will host the exhibit, which will be in the foyer of Hoag Hall.

John Adams Unbound explores Adams’ personal library – a collection of 3,500 books willed by Adams to the people of Massachusetts and deposited in the Boston Public Library in 1894. Through photo-reproductions of these annotated volumes, viewers will witness one of our founding fathers wrestling with intellectual and political ideas at each stage in his life. John Adams Unbound has been organized by the Boston Public Library and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. This traveling exhibition has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Activities related to the exhibit will begin on March 5 with a Colonial-themed dinner and Chautauqua performance, An Evening with John Adams, by Bill Chrystal, a retired Congregational minister and internationally recognized scholar of American Religious History, who hosted National Public Radio’s program “The Thomas Jefferson Hour” for more than10 years. His portrayal of John Adams grows out of that experience and is sponsored in part by the Colorado Humanities.

A sneak peek of the Adams exhibit will be held from 6-7 p.m. in the Occhiato University Center Hearthwell Lounge followed by the dinner in the OUC Ballroom at 7 p.m. and the live performance at 8 p.m. The cost is $35 per person or $350 for a table of 10. To purchase tickets or a table, contact Julie Fronmueller at 719-549-2826 or julie.fronmueller@colostate-pueblo.edu.
