The pessimistic words of Norman Rice, esteemed former director of the Albany Institute of History and Art, ring in my ears. He was asked to compare the huge enthusiasm and dedication of resources and scale of celebration that occurred for the 300th anniversary in 1909, with what we can reasonably expect in 2009.

Norman S. Rice and Jim Gwynn can't escape memories anywhere in this city, not after so many decades of living and working amid its art and history, quirk and bustle.
...
"No end of memories," Rice says.
For 19 years, the room was Rice's office - from 1967 to 1986, his tenure as director of the institute. Just sitting there at a broad table on a Monday afternoon takes him back to 1953, the year he started as a curator. The longtime city historian talks about the past and its people as though they never left, because, for him, they haven't. He still thinks about them, still learns about them, and still, they come to life.
He looks around.
...
On Saturday, the institute will hold its annual gala in honor of Gwynn and Rice, longtime Albany residents, presences at the institute and contributors, in so many ways, to the city's arts and cultural scenes.
...
Rice grew up in eastern Massachusetts, where a grandmother took him to museums and sparked his interest in art.
...
"They're easy," Rice adds. The institute's gala invitation featured a bow-tie-shaped cutout over the two men's faces: the bespectacled Jim, the keen-eyed Norman, both in tuxedos and both so young.
...
Gwynn will be 92 in June; Rice, 87 in August.
...
Rice first arrived at the institute after looking for work in New York City. He had a love of art, a reverence for history, a gift for research and two degrees from Harvard - a bachelor's in fine arts and a master's in education.
...
Gwynn asks across the table, getting a nod from Rice.
...
At the table, AIHA director of development Elizabeth Reiss fans out a stack of old snapshots, and the men reminisce: Jim and Norman in Egypt, Jim and Norman in Rome, Jim and Norman at Jim's 70th birthday party (check out Jim in that stunning pair of blue plaid pants).

"You'll go to the Schoharie Antique Show, and there'll be Norman. You'll go to a lecture, and there'll be Norman. You'll go to the institute, and there'll be Norman. It's not uncommon to see him three days in a row. Just recently, he says, he was touring Emmanuel Baptist Church on State Street. "And in walks Norman. He's everywhere."
...
The present does, too, though Rice and Gwynn have a bone to pick with modern fashions.
...
Rice says he used to own two tuxedos.
...
Rice hasn't worn it in 40 years.
