Paintings from the Reign of Victoria

Free to the public! Paintings from the Reign of Victoria: The Royal Holloway Collection, London illustrates some of the highest achievements in figurative and landscape art of the nineteenth century. Acquired by Thomas Holloway to enhance the women’s college he founded in 1879, the collection includes many of the most visible and praised “modern canvasses” in London in the 1880s.

The Museum of Art is delighted to be one of seven American venues in this historic tour of a splendid collection of Victorian paintings from Royal Holloway College, University of London. Thomas Holloway, a highly successful British entrepreneur, amassed the collection between 1881 and 1883 for the art museum at the women’s college that he had just established. In one of the great spending sprees in art history, he purchased 77 paintings, almost all by outstanding contemporary British painters. In the process, he broke records for the highest auction prices for works of this period and acquired a number of major masterpieces.

All of the 60 works in this exhibition are painted in the meticulously realistic style popular in late 19th-century Britain. Their brilliant colors, fine craftsmanship, and, in some cases, large size give them great presence and emotional power. They include imaginative portrayals of historical events, picturesque landscapes, and dramatic scenes of Victorian urban and rural life. Visitors to this exhibition will see a remarkable cross-section of British artistic achievements at the apogée of the Empire’s prosperity and confidence.

A Mysterious Occurrence Dinner Date

On Friday, March 11, and Saturday, March 12, at 6 p.m., BYU’s Museum of Peoples and Cultures (MPC) will host a dinner for couples who come to help solve a mystery.

Help Solve A Mystery, Dinner Date Night, Museum of People and Cultures, BYU, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah County, LDSEach semester, the MPC hosts a Mystery Dinner date night where play out character personalities and work to discover who stole a valuable artifact from the Museum. Identity profiles are assigned to each individual when they purchase tickets and include a brief history of their character along with costume suggestions.

“It’s really fun to see what participants do with their character,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the Museum. “Each session is different because of the people that come—the variety makes it a lot of fun.”

“The Disappearance of the Parrot Jar” will begin with a tour of the exhibit “crime scene” where the artifact was stolen. The mystery unfolds over dinner, as clues are revealed and accusations made. Each character is a suspect in the mystery and everyone must prove their innocence to the other participants.

Tickets for the date night are $24 per couple (which includes dinner and dessert*) and will be available at the WSC Information Desk beginning March 7. For more information visit mpc.byu.edu or call 801.422.0020. (*Unfortunately the MPC cannot accommodate gluten or dairy allergies.)

The Gift of Learning

Friday, December 10th will be a special day at the Museum of Peoples and Cultures, and anyone is welcome to attend.

The MPC will be joining with BYU’s United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) club to offer an afternoon of learning and fun to children for an early Christmas present. The Gift of LearningThe event will run from 4 to 6 p.m. and will include 4 learning stations, a video, and treats. The categories of the learning stations include math, geography, reading and writing, and art. Children are able to come in at any time and rotate through the stations as they please, free of charge.

“We want to show the kids that the best gift for your self is education,” said Jessica Myers, UNICEF club member.

According to Myers, 24,000 children die every year due to catastrophe, war, famine, and other grievous causes. UNICEF members desire to bring that number “down to zero” by doing whatever they can to serve in their community and without.

“Our goals are to educate members throughout the community about children around the world who are in need of help,” Myers said.

Both the MPC and the UNICEF club hope to give the children of Utah Valley a unique and exciting experience.

“The children will leave the Museum with more than just some treats and a craft,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the MPC, “they will get to take new knowledge that they can share with others.”
