Art Deco New York: From the Chrysler Building to the Grand Concourse
A lecture by Anthony W. Robins
Sunday, September 14 at 3:00 p.m.
Art Deco today can refer to anything from saltcellars to skyscrapers, produced anywhere in the world during the early decades of the last century, using abstract, stylized floral, geometric, or streamlined design. In New York, Art Deco evolved through a series of Manhattan skyscrapers into the city's chief architectural language. Following a massive reawakening of interest during the 1970s, New York's Deco buildings today survive as prized remnants of a
distant-yet-modern past that still helps to define the city's visual identity.
This lecture covers the great skyscrapers of architects Raymond Hood, William Van Alen, Ely Jacques Kahn, and Ralph Walker, including the Daily News, Empire State, Irving Trust, General Electric, American Radiator, Barclay- Vesey and RCA Buildings. It then traces the adaptation of this "skyscraper style" through apartment buildings on the Bronx's Grand Concourse, airport terminals at LaGuardia, the Central Park West residential skyline, automated midtown parking garages, diners, hotels, department stores, banks and theaters like Radio City Music Hall.
This program, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council of the Humanities' Speakers in the Humanities program.
Celebrate the Genius of Buster Keaton
Saturday, September 20 at 3:00 p.m.
Come join us for an evening of exciting, funfilled, silent movies from the great silent star,
Buster Keaton. Joseph Frank "Buster" Keaton was an American comic actor, filmmaker, producer and writer.
He was best known for his silent films, in which his trademark was physical comedy with a consistently stoic, deadpan expression, earning him the nickname "The Great Stone Face".
Buster Keaton was recognized as the seventh-greatest director by Entertainment Weekly. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Keaton the 21st-greatest male star. Critic Roger Ebert wrote of Keaton's "extraordinary period from 1920 to 1929, [when] he worked without interruption on a series of films that make him, arguably, the greatest actor-director in the history of the movies."
Book Discussions: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Sunday, September 21 at 12:15 p.m.
They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose...Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life-steady boyfriend, close family-who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life-big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel-and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy-but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.
