May 15, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the world’s first regularly scheduled airmail service. President Wilson was on hand in Washington, DC to watch the historic take off. At first the service only operated between Washington, Philadelphia and New York. By 1920, airmail raced from New York to San Francisco. It was dangerous work. More than 30 pilots died doing their best to fly the mail. Americans recognized the bravery of these Postmen of the Skies, treating them as heroes. In 1927 the Post Office handed off the last of its routes to private contractors, paving the way for what became the nation’s commercial aviation system. View this special centennial exhibition at the Smithsonian's National Postal Museum. Open daily 10 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Profs and Pints presents: "New American Desert Art," with Joshua Shannon, associate professor of contemporary art history and theory at the University of Maryland, director of the Potomac Center for the Study of Modernity, and author of The Recording Machine: Art and Fact during the Cold War. Amazing works of art that previously bloomed in Nevada's Black Rock Desert have now popped up on Washington DC's streets and inside the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery, thanks to the gallery's exhibit "No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man." Profs and Pints is pleased to host a talk for those curious about the pieces and the aesthetic from which they sprang. Joshua Shannon, a specialist in the history and theory of art since 1945, will explore the preoccupation with America's deserts that arose in artists about 1968. He'll discuss the desert's meanings as a place of both apocalypse and utopia, as well as its relationships with atomic-bomb research, the space program, and the popularity of Westerns. Above all, Professor Shannon's talk will examine the artists' collective fantasy that the desert could provide a landscape reassuringly devoid of everything but pure facts. He will discuss not just works made for Burning Man, but the creations of Michael Heizer, Nancy Holt, Robert Smithson, and Vija Celmins. He'll draw loosely from to the second chapter of his new book, The Recording Machine: Art and Fact during the Cold War (Yale University Press, 2017), and he'll have signed copies available for sale. (Tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door.)

This leads to improper care of the patient, and endangers the entire group. Many recreational accidents are preventable, and improper care of trauma can compound even simple injuries. Very few first aid programs actually address the issues of providing emergency care in a setting where 911 is overwhelmed or not immediately reachable. In this course, classroom instruction and Q&A are interwoven with practical work and problem-solving exercises. Hands-on experience - a most powerful learning tool - during scenarios comprise ~50% of class. 8:30am - 6:30pm or 7pm both days; you come away with actual do-it-yourself care-giving confidence.

12:00-1:00Tuesday Talk: “Preserving Life by Preserving Food: The Methods and Materials of America’s Food Keeping Traditions”From ships galleys to royal patisseries, in slave cabins and kitchens of the “big house,” food sustained both human life and historical cultural traditions. In the days before refrigeration, preservation methods were just as important as the way food was grown or cooked. The culinary traditions of storing food for the future played a critical role in shaping the material culture of kitchens and storerooms across America. This presentation traces the developments in food preservation practices that were used to combat the inherent perishability of culinary fare. Taking a closer look at techniques like salting, smoking, pickling, and potting, this talk explores the objects and tools necessary to “put up” provisions and how preserved products influenced the creation of regional and national cuisines.Speaker: Rachel Asbury, Lois F. McNeil Fellow, Winterthur Program in American Material Culture

12:00-1:00pmFree, drop-inTuesday Talk- “I’ma take your grandpa's style”– How Vintage Clothing Became MainstreamLong before Macklemore rapped about popping tags at the thrift shop and wearing your grandpa’s clothes, vintage clothing was firmly established as a statement of individuality in the fashion world. The idea of wearing grandpa’s (and grandma’s) clothing as fashion and not for playing dress-up as children is a concept that dates back to about the 1950s. Over the decades, vintage clothing has transitioned from the counterculture/niche market to the pages of national fashion magazines, sold by major fashion labels, embraced by celebrities and of course, worn by Grammy-winning rap artists.This presentation will trace the evolution of vintage from small boutiques to major retailers and online platforms and social media. It will also cover insider information on how the vintage market works, how to find good vintage deals, and how to care for your vintage items. Speaker: Deb Fuller, Learning Designer, Strayer University
