Join public historian Kathleen Hulser to hear about mavericks such as Emma Goldman, Isadora Duncan, Dorothy Day, Mabel Dodge, Louise Bryant, Eleanor Roosevelt, Lorraine Hansberry, Nina Simone, Jane Jacobs, and Angela Davis and the many other rebellious spirits who left their mark on Greenwich Village – and on the world.
Geographically and spiritually, Washington Square has always been the center of the Village. Bohemia’s beating heart. A place to gather, whether to protest or just hang out, often with a guitar. The now-traditional Village Trip concert in the Park, headlined this year by Grammy-winning local heroes The Klezmatics, celebrates Greenwich Village as “a state of mind with no boundaries.”
A group exhibition of paintings, drawings, and photography of portraits depicting persons past and present who are associated with, live in, or have lived in Greenwich Village/East Village. Curated by long-time Village artist Marc Kehoe, this exhibition powerfully demonstrates that the visual arts continue to flourish in this most vibrant downtown neighborhood.
