Chagall In New York: A Virtual Presentation, 10/4 @ 7 PM

Like so many leading artists of his time, Marc Chagall came to New York City during WWII into exile, which allowed him to continue to work and exhibit, but also to create major public works like the monumental paintings for the Metropolitan Opera and the glass windows for the UN as well as the Rockefeller family. He was also invited to collaborate in major theater productions. While NYC is not featured prominently in his paintings, the experience of war and persecution, the loss of his wife Bella, and his newfound love are all woven into the fabric of his established poetic language and still resonate profoundly in our times.

Led by Art Historian Sylvia Laudien Meo, this virtual presentation will explore the life, legacy, and groundbreaking art of Marc Chagall whose modernist art subjects ranged from life memories and fantasies to the Jewish culture. A virtual look at the Union Church in Pocantico Hills, New York where Chagall designed the Rockefeller memorial windows will also be included.
