Air America Exhibition
Please note, this event has expired.
Though it is mostly invisible to us, we need air. (Please remember to breathe as you read this.) Necessary to life, hard to grasp, air became a powerful metaphor and an actual source of power for life in the new world. Europeans used the wind to get to America, then worried that its air was bad for them (mal-aria). Hurricanes and other tempests of wind threatened lives and properties. Indian, European, and African peoples of the Americas played and sang musical airs, even operatic arias.View more
