92Y Fall-winter Design,
Art, and Fashion Events 2010 - 2011
From Frank Gehry to Julian Schnabel to Tim Gunn – 92Y is chatting with giants from the worlds of art, design and fashion this fall, and you're invited. Whether you're interested in Marc Newson's cool industrial designs, Anselm Kiefer's brooding paintings, Maira Kalman's whimsical cartoons or Diane von Furstenberg's quintessential wraparound dress, they have got a talk that will expand your understanding and satisfy your visual appetite. And if you're interested in more than talking, they offer art tours (geared to painters, jewelry-makers or potters) and master classes with visiting artists as well.
