Your Future is Here: Older New York Artists Speak

WED, Oct 19, 2016
5–8 pm

Location: Floor Three, Susan and John Hess Family Theater

Jointly organized by the Whitney Museum and the Research Center for Arts and Culture, this panel discussion will feature artists who have participated in the ART CART: SAVING THE LEGACY project. Artists Zigi Ben-Haim, Niki Berg, Sonia Gechtoff, and Ray Grist will share their insights on the challenges of working in place, making art over the course of a lifetime, and preparing for the future. Joan Jeffri, Founder and Director of the Research Center for Arts and Culture founded at Columbia University and now at The Actors Fund, will introduce the program and moderate the discussion. 

Planned in conjunction with Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight, an exhibition of the Cuban-born painter who at 101 years old continues to create work every day in her studio, the panel will be followed by a reception, and a private viewing of the exhibition.  

This event is free. Registration is required.
