Lily’s list -Upcoming Art Events

For a general listing of events in New York City, try Time Out NY, or the New York Times Arts and Leisure or Weekend sections, etc. There are very many wonderful events all over the city.

Here, I  usually list special events that might not be noticed amid the overwhelming choices available in New York City. Since this blog is about the city, I only occasionally list nearby trips. If you are going to visit NYC and would like some suggestions about nearby trips, please email me at this site and I will be glad to reply.

Tuesday, February 23, 2010 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

Since the 1970s, New York City residents and animal protection organizations have sought to protect the horses used in the carriage industry and to ensure public safety. However, the dangers created by vehicles continue to threaten the safety of both people and animals. Horses, which weigh more than 1,000 pounds, can get spooked and collide with cars or pedestrians. They collapse on the streets. They die prematurely in stables. They suffer from punishing pavement, extreme weather conditions, and lack of water. How did the horse-drawn carriage trade develop? How does it affect city life, the health of humans and animals, and the local economy? What reforms are possible, and what are the obstacles?

Speakers include Dr. Pam Corey, director of Equine Veterinary Services, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA); Peter Eisinger, Henry Cohen Professor, Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy; Patrick Kwan, New York state director, Humane Society of the United States; John Phillips, executive director, New York League of Humane Voters; Steve Nislick, president and CEO of Edison Properties LLC, co-president of NYCLASS, and board member of Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy; and Lisa J. Servon, dean, The New School for General Studies and Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy.

Presented by Milano and New Yorkers for Clean, Livable, and Safe Streets (NYCLASS)

The Jewish Museum

RECLAIMED: PAINTINGS FROM THE COLLECTION OF JACQUES GOUDSTIKKER

March 15 through August 2, 2009

The Jewish Museum will present an exhibition of rarely-seen Old Master paintings entitled Reclaimed: Paintings from the Collection of Jacques Goudstikker from March 15 through August 2, 2009.  Ten of the paintings have never been exhibited in North America before.

Reclaimed reveals the extraordinary legacy of Jacques Goudstikker, the preeminent Jewish art dealer in Amsterdam whose vast collection of masterpieces was almost lost forever to the Nazi practice of looting cultural properties.  Goudstikker’s family successfully reclaimed 200 paintings . The exhibit will feature 40 of the finest examples of the recovered art, along with original documents and photographs.

Also, these lectures at the Jewish Museum:
