Angra do Heroísmo ,  May 12, 2010

Angra do Heroísmo Museum celebrates Museum’s Night and International Museum Day

The Angra do Heroísmo Museum celebrates for the fifth consecutive year the Museum’s Night and the International Museum Day to take place on May 15 and 18, respectively.

By proposal of the International Council of Museums (ICOM), this year’s event will focus on theme “Museums and Social Harmony.”

In order to celebrate these events, the Angra do Heroísmo Museum has organised various activities that privilege music as a mediator of harmony and coordination between the institution and the public.

Hence, the Educational Service of the Museum will organise from May 10 to 15 free Workshops to Make Musical instruments which aim to develop the sense of rhythm and expressive skills of school-aged children, who are encouraged to create their own instruments and use them to accompany children songs.

The temporary exhibition “Ernesto Veiga de Oliveira (1910-1990), an Ethnologist in the Azores” will open on Friday, May 14 at 9 PM. This exhibition will be open until September 19 at the Sala do Capítulo (Chapter Room).

The conference on “Ernesto Veiga de Oliveira. The rigorousness and the enchantment of demand” will be delivered by Joaquim Pais de Brito, Director of the National Museum of Ethnology, on the same day at 9:30 PM.

The colloquium will focus on the work carried out by one of the most important references in Portuguese ethnology, particularly during the mission in the Azores, which was jointly undertaken with Benjamim E. Pereira, in November 1963.  

The traditional 15 string guitar from Terceira, one of the instruments studied by Ernesto Veiga de Oliveira in 1963, will be the protagonist of the Museum’s Night to be held next Saturday on May 15.

From 9 PM to 12 PM there will be several musical moments performed by students and teachers from the Tomás de Borba Basic Education School in different areas of the Museum.

On the International Day of Museum, May 18, the outdoor posters will be renewed, with photographs by António Araújo, in order to disseminate art pieces of the Angra do Heroísmo Museum in various spots of the city.
