2009 Michigan Renaissance Festival

For 31 years, the Michigan Renaissance Festival has provided Holly with a unique venue that regularly attracts more than 220,000 visitors from Michigan and surrounding states.

When the Festival first began back in 1979 on the grounds of Columbiere in Clarkston, Michigan, the Renaissance Festival attracted under 11,000 patrons during our 5 weekend event. Years later the Festival found a more permanent home where it currently
stands, just 12 miles south of Flint on Dixie Highway.
The pageantry of a 16th century village is evident in the wide variety of activities. Entertainment is not only featured on sixteen stages, but in the lanes and on an interactive level with the patrons.

From peasants to royalty, the people of the village of Hollygrove visit with guests to provide a day to remember! Highlights include the thrilling full contact joust with armored knights and horses, the intensity of the Human Combat Chess Match and the hilarity of acts like the Washing Well Wenches, Ded Bob and Ample and Trite.

The Realm is filled with amazingly talented artisans who offer their unique wares and often share their skills in craft demonstrations. Beautiful glassware, crafted leather,
exotic jewelry and Renaissance clothing are just a few examples of the masterpieces that can be found in the marketplace.

Visitors are advised to skip breakfast and save their appetite for the fresh baked goods, soup in a bread bowl, Scotch eggs, apple dumplings and of course, the famous turkey legs that are cooked over an open flame. The array of foods is overwhelming and sure to satisfy any cravings!

It is truly fun for the whole family since the Renaissance Festival also offers games, human-powered rides, and a Children’s Realm that features a castle playscape as well
as free activities for younger visitors. The Michigan Renaissance Festival invites everyone to celebrate along with us as we enter our 31st season. Huzzah and cheers for 31 years!

NYC – Metropolitan Museum of Art – Venus and Cupid
renaissance
Image by wallyg
Venus and Cupid
late 1520s
Lorenzo Lotto (Italian, Venetian, ca. 1480–1556)
Oil on canvas; 36 3/8 x 43 7/8 in. (92.4 x 111.4 cm)

The theme of this picture, by the most eccentric genius of the Venetian Renaissance, was inspired by classical marriage poems (or epithalamia) and was almost certainly painted to celebrate a wedding (the Venus may be a portrait of the bride). Lotto was fascinated with emblematic devices. The shell above Venus’ head and the rose petals on her lap are conventional attributes of the goddess. The ivy is symbolic of conjugal fidelity while the myrtle wreath and brazier suspended from it are accoutrements of the marriage chamber. Venus wears the earring and diadem of a sixteenth-century bride. Cupid’s action, an augury of fertility, confers a mood of lighthearted wit on this most popular Venetian subject.

The painting was likely made for a sophisticated client of humanist sympathies, but its learned aspects manage not to overwhelm the viewer; as one critic recently observed, the painting is instead a triumph of delectation. Its bold but carefully considered palette would have been admired by intimates both for its ties to the classical world and for its earthier provocations. It ranks alongside the greatest Venetian nudes, such as Titian’s Venus of Urbino (Uffizi, Florence), but it also enriches the genre by virtue of Lotto’s individual wit and insistence on representing a real woman, with warm brown eyes, a longish nose, and a tender half-smile.

**
The Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s permanent collection contains more than two million works of art from around the world. It opened its doors on February 20, 1872, housed in a building located at 681 Fifth Avenue in New York City. Under their guidance of John Taylor Johnston and George Palmer Putnam, the Met’s holdings, initially consisting of a Roman stone sarcophagus and 174 mostly European paintings, quickly outgrew the available space. In 1873, occasioned by the Met’s purchase of the Cesnola Collection of Cypriot antiquities, the museum decamped from Fifth Avenue and took up residence at the Douglas Mansion on West 14th Street. However, these new accommodations were temporary; after negotiations with the city of New York, the Met acquired land on the east side of Central Park, where it built its permanent home, a red-brick Gothic Revival stone "mausoleum" designed by American architects Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mold. As of 2006, the Met measures almost a quarter mile long and occupies more than two million square feet, more than 20 times the size of the original 1880 building.

In 2007, the Metropolitan Museum of Art was ranked #17 on the AIA 150 America’s Favorite Architecture list.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1967. The interior was designated in 1977.

This is the next time I have visited the Minnesota Renaissance Pageant – it is enormous – about ten times greater than the Three Barons in Anchorage. I hit the MRF when the themed weekend associated belly dancers (how coincidental!!). The Sisters
of the Sahara are one particular of the major functionality groups in the Fest – and 1 of the greatest bellying dancing troupes I have at any time observed – they carry out both solo and team dances and they are absolutely amazingly – often great to look at. Also, they are a blast to speak to soon after the performances – quite sweet, no diva drama in any of them. I positive hope I can make it to the 2013 MRF – it would be really worth it!

This is the next time I’ve frequented the Minnesota Renaissance Competition – it is enormous – about 10 occasions bigger than the A few Barons in Anchorage. I hit the MRF when the themed weekend concerned belly dancers (how coincidental!!). The Sisters
of the Sahara are one of the main efficiency teams in the Fest – and 1 of the greatest bellying dancing troupes I have ever observed – they complete equally solo and team dances and they are definitely extremely – often wonderful to look at. Also, they are a blast to chat to right after the performances – quite sweet, no diva drama in any of them. I confident hope I can make it to the 2013 MRF – it would be well worth it!
