2013 Annual Meeting and Crooks Distinguished Lecture: Culture Shock 1913: An Illustrated Lecture with Sara Fishko

Event Date/Time

Sep 19, 2013
6:00 pm

Description

It's 1913. The traditional culture of the 1800s is finally breaking apart in earnest. Big cities. More noise. Violence. Machines. And artists are responding by making jarring, Cubist paintings. Composers are writing thrusting, rhythmic, harshly dissonant music. The world seems shaky and uncertain, and there are riots and fistfights in the concert hall and at the ballet! At this year’s combined Annual Meeting and Crooks Distinguished Lecture, Sara Fishko of WNYC, New York Public Radio, will reflect on this astonishing moment in history.

You won’t want to miss this rare double feature that so aptly demonstrates what the Greenwich Historical Society is all about. A cocktail reception will take place prior to the meeting.

Edith and Roy B. Simpson have generously underwritten this event.
