Event Description:

Co-sponsored by the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences , Creative Cities International and The Baruch College-Rubin Museum of Art Project

Mayor de Blasio ran and won on a platform of a "tale of two cities." His election prompts us to ask what a vision for a more egalitarian society could mean for the arts in our city.

Over this and two more evenings -- April 2nd and 30th -- we will take a fresh look at how a progressive administration could - with public support - reshape and revitalize our attitudes and priorities on a wide range of pressing issues for the arts and culture broadly. What value do we place on ensuring dynamic cultural experiences for all our citizens?  

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC--$10.00 donation suggested

March 19 --
Cultural Institutions, Artists and Public Policy: The Creative Side of Life

What role should the arts play in our lives? What role do they play now? In a city where we trumpet the enormous benefit of the arts to our well-being in many ways - economically, socially, and artistically - how do we reflect that in support for them? This discussion will challenge assumptions about how little there is to spend on support for cultural institutions large and small in all five boroughs, their programming for their communities, and how priorities for funding are determined.

Panelists Expected:
++ Tom Finkelpearl, Director, Queens Museums
++ Patricia Cruz, Executive Director, Harlem Stage
++ Jonah Bokaer, Choreographer and Founder, Chez Bushwick

Moderated by Randall Bourscheidt, President Emeritus, Alliance for the Arts
