  • The Maple Leaf Exhibit

    The Maple Leaf Exhibitdetail +

    National Civil War Naval Museum map
    Tue., May. 10, 2016, 12:00AM - Thu., Aug. 4, 2016, 11:59PM
    The Maple Leaf During the latter part of the Civil War in Florida, the Union transport ship Maple Leaf was sunk in the St. John's River near Jacksonville by a Confederate torpedo. Originally used in Canada as a pleasure excursion vessel, the Maple Leaf was purchased and put into service by the Union army during the war. After it sank, the ship lay in the St. John's River until 1984, when it was rediscovered and partially excavated by Keith Holland and the St. John's Archaeological Expedition, Inc. The ship's contents, encased by the river's muddy bottom, provide a time capsule of this period in history, offering a glimpse into previously undocumented aspects of the war and its effects on northeastern Florida. This exhibit features items used by the soldiers on board the Maple Leaf, an authentic reproduction of the Civil War-era torpedo that was used to sink the ship, and an informational video. You can enjoy this traveling exhibit from May 10th - August 4th

Discovering the Chattahoochee Valley: Silk Paintings by René Shoemakerdetail +

The Columbus Museum map map

Sun., Aug. 23, 2015 – Sun., Jul. 31, 2016

In August, artist René Shoemaker will transform the Galleria with an exhibition of large-scale silk paintings, on view until the following July. Shoemaker, a long-time resident of Athens, Georgia, creates hand-painted silk works that celebrate the distinctive character of a city or place. For her exhibition at The Columbus Museum, the artist has created site-specific works about the Chattahoochee Valley after visiting here and immersing herself in its sights, sounds, and smells and making preliminary sketches of buildings, spaces, and people. Shoemaker solicited responses from the Columbus-area community through social media to decide which buildings and locations could be used in the paintings. The silk paintings on view in the exhibition thus truly capture the characteristics that make the Chattahoochee Valley unique. Shoemaker explains that the project was “about discovering what makes the city and valley unique to its citizens and visitors. What patterns in the landscape are distinguishable, and how can I tease out the beauty of these sites great and small? What memories are held by the people there; what locations do they like to visit the most? Where are the neighborhoods they drive through without really seeing, and where do they like to meet with friends? What do the children remember as they grow up in Columbus?” Shoemaker’s medium of hand-painted silk has dye applied directly to the material. For this project, she used silk twill, a midweight silk that billows gently as the air moves. Shoemaker received her B.F.A. from the University of Georgia and a degree in library sciences (M.L.I.S.) from the University of South Carolina. She lives in the woods in Oconee County, Georgia in a handmade octagon house.

Discovering the Chattahoochee Valley: Silk Paintings by René Shoemakerdetail +

The Columbus Museum map map

Sun., Aug. 23, 2015 – Sun., Jul. 31, 2016

In August, artist René Shoemaker will transform the Galleria with an exhibition of large-scale silk paintings, on view until the following July. Shoemaker, a long-time resident of Athens, Georgia, creates hand-painted silk works that celebrate the distinctive character of a city or place. For her exhibition at The Columbus Museum, the artist has created site-specific works about the Chattahoochee Valley after visiting here and immersing herself in its sights, sounds, and smells and making preliminary sketches of buildings, spaces, and people. Shoemaker solicited responses from the Columbus-area community through social media to decide which buildings and locations could be used in the paintings. The silk paintings on view in the exhibition thus truly capture the characteristics that make the Chattahoochee Valley unique. Shoemaker explains that the project was “about discovering what makes the city and valley unique to its citizens and visitors. What patterns in the landscape are distinguishable, and how can I tease out the beauty of these sites great and small? What memories are held by the people there; what locations do they like to visit the most? Where are the neighborhoods they drive through without really seeing, and where do they like to meet with friends? What do the children remember as they grow up in Columbus?” Shoemaker’s medium of hand-painted silk has dye applied directly to the material. For this project, she used silk twill, a midweight silk that billows gently as the air moves. Shoemaker received her B.F.A. from the University of Georgia and a degree in library sciences (M.L.I.S.) from the University of South Carolina. She lives in the woods in Oconee County, Georgia in a handmade octagon house.

The Maple Leaf Exhibitdetail +

National Civil War Naval Museum

Tue., May. 10, 2016 – Thu., Aug. 4, 2016

The Maple Leaf During the latter part of the Civil War in Florida, the Union transport ship Maple Leaf was sunk in the St. John's River near Jacksonville by a Confederate torpedo. Originally used in Canada as a pleasure excursion vessel, the Maple Leaf was purchased and put into service by the Union army during the war. After it sank, the ship lay in the St. John's River until 1984, when it was rediscovered and partially excavated by Keith Holland and the St. John's Archaeological Expedition, Inc. The ship's contents, encased by the river's muddy bottom, provide a time capsule of this period in history, offering a glimpse into previously undocumented aspects of the war and its effects on northeastern Florida. This exhibit features items used by the soldiers on board the Maple Leaf, an authentic reproduction of the Civil War-era torpedo that was used to sink the ship, and an informational video. You can enjoy this traveling exhibit from May 10th - August 4th

Discovering the Chattahoochee Valley: Silk Paintings by René Shoemakerdetail +

The Columbus Museum map map

Sun., Aug. 23, 2015 – Sun., Jul. 31, 2016

In August, artist René Shoemaker will transform the Galleria with an exhibition of large-scale silk paintings, on view until the following July. Shoemaker, a long-time resident of Athens, Georgia, creates hand-painted silk works that celebrate the distinctive character of a city or place. For her exhibition at The Columbus Museum, the artist has created site-specific works about the Chattahoochee Valley after visiting here and immersing herself in its sights, sounds, and smells and making preliminary sketches of buildings, spaces, and people. Shoemaker solicited responses from the Columbus-area community through social media to decide which buildings and locations could be used in the paintings. The silk paintings on view in the exhibition thus truly capture the characteristics that make the Chattahoochee Valley unique. Shoemaker explains that the project was “about discovering what makes the city and valley unique to its citizens and visitors. What patterns in the landscape are distinguishable, and how can I tease out the beauty of these sites great and small? What memories are held by the people there; what locations do they like to visit the most? Where are the neighborhoods they drive through without really seeing, and where do they like to meet with friends? What do the children remember as they grow up in Columbus?” Shoemaker’s medium of hand-painted silk has dye applied directly to the material. For this project, she used silk twill, a midweight silk that billows gently as the air moves. Shoemaker received her B.F.A. from the University of Georgia and a degree in library sciences (M.L.I.S.) from the University of South Carolina. She lives in the woods in Oconee County, Georgia in a handmade octagon house.

The Maple Leaf Exhibitdetail +

National Civil War Naval Museum

Tue., May. 10, 2016 – Thu., Aug. 4, 2016

The Maple Leaf During the latter part of the Civil War in Florida, the Union transport ship Maple Leaf was sunk in the St. John's River near Jacksonville by a Confederate torpedo. Originally used in Canada as a pleasure excursion vessel, the Maple Leaf was purchased and put into service by the Union army during the war. After it sank, the ship lay in the St. John's River until 1984, when it was rediscovered and partially excavated by Keith Holland and the St. John's Archaeological Expedition, Inc. The ship's contents, encased by the river's muddy bottom, provide a time capsule of this period in history, offering a glimpse into previously undocumented aspects of the war and its effects on northeastern Florida. This exhibit features items used by the soldiers on board the Maple Leaf, an authentic reproduction of the Civil War-era torpedo that was used to sink the ship, and an informational video. You can enjoy this traveling exhibit from May 10th - August 4th
