The Handwerker Gallery is pleased to announce that Jeffrey A. Cohen will deliver a lecture entitled “From the Street: Public Conversations with Private Architecture” October 27 at 3.30 p.m.
Cohen, senior lecturer and chair of the Growth and Structure of Cities Program at Bryn Mawr College, will focus on 19th-century American cityscapes. This lecture is co-sponsored by the Ithaca College Department of Art History.
Cohen's lecture will immediately precede the opening reception for The Rise of A Landmark: Lewis Hine and the Empire State Building, the Gallery's current exhibition of silver-gelatin prints recording the 1930–31 construction of New York City’s iconic architecture. The Rise of A Landmark was organized by George Eastman House, and we invite you to join us for both events.
All Handwerker Gallery events are free and open to the public. Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodation should contact Mara Baldwin (607.274.7057) as much in advance of the event as possible.
