Lifelong Learning

Book Group

Read for pleasure and then share. Join us to chat casually about books. Everyone is encouraged to participate.

Discussion will be lightly facilitated by Kathy Graff. 

Attendees should read the book in advance of the meeting. We will chose books that are fun to read--well-written and not too dense.

The selection for April is The Other Americans by Laila Lalami.

Step out of your own world for a little, and journey with us into the lives of literary characters.

The New MoMA

with Sheryl Intrator Urman, Art Lecturer, Curator and Docent
The new MOMA has expanded its galleries and spaces for the eyes and mind to explore and learn. How and why did this all come about? Ms Urman will discuss the founding concepts and players who organized MOMA and made it happen, including why most present-day museums are re-thinking the museum experience. Sheryl will also talk about the controversy surrounding the new way current curators have chosen to exhibit the artwork of many favorite artists... Monet, Picasso, Kahlo, and Van Gogh.
