Happy Birthday #RedGrooms! Grooms created this work, "Shoot the Moon" in 1961. This paper film was created as an entertainment for his artist friends. Its bright colors and humor reveal his love of theater, carnivals, and the circus. The decorative proscenium frames an opening for the “movie,” which can be rolled to display different scenes.

This work was included in "The Color of The Moon: Lunar Painting in American Art," which was on view at the HRM from Feb-May, 2019. The exhibition just recently opened at @michenerart in Doylestown, PA, so you can still see this and more than 60 other stunning American nocturnes from 1810s to the 1960s.

Is riding in a hot-air balloon on your bucket list? Today is #HotAirBalloonDay, so get inspired by this sheet music for "Around the World in 80 Days."

The iconic symbol of the hot air balloon became associated with Jules Verne’s book "Around the World in 80 days" in the 1956 film starring David Niven. Fun fact: a hot air balloon voyage is only mentioned as an idea by the main character Phileas Fogg, but was never taken.

Actor and activist Ossie Davis is one of many individuals that Herb Snitzer photographed; his portrait is featured in the exhibition #CanIGetAWitness. Davis, who once lived in Mount Vernon, NY, received numerous awards during his lifetime—he was inducted into the @NAACP Image Award Hall of Fame, 1989; Theater Hall of Fame, 1994; and won the U.S. National Medal for the Arts, 1995.

#CanIGetAWitness features a selection of more than 40 works including portraits of iconic jazz musicians from the 1950s and 60s—such as #JohnColtrane, #NinaSimone, and #MilesDavis—images that document the struggle for social equity and equal rights, exultations of the human spirit, and #WorldPride.

Friday, June 14 is the HRM's Gala of the Century, a night that commemorates our 100th anniversary, as well as our unique and rich history and our vibrant future. At the event, we will honor four individuals who have strengthened the community with their dedication, innovation, and leadership.

Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins, the Museum's 2019 Isidore Konti Medal recipient, is the first woman and first African American woman to serve as New York State Senate Majority Leader. A longtime Yonkers resident, Stewart-Cousins has always been a strong advocate for Westchester County and an enduring supporter of the HRM.

Social activism has been present in the African American community of Yonkers since before the Civil Rights Movement. In the 1930s, a number of political clubs were formed, including the Runyon Heights Democratic Club, the Republican Club of Nepperhan, and the Phillis Wheatley Republic Club. Joining these clubs meant you were a part of a powerful voting bloc that had access to city leaders such as the mayor, alderman, and city judges. This continued through the 1960s, 1980s, and today.

"Through Our Eyes: Milestones and Memories of African Americans in Yonkers" explores social activism in Yonkers through photographs provided by the community. One of eight themes that chronicle the life and celebrate the stories and achievements of many individuals throughout the City is on view now through Nov. 3, 2019.
