Authors Talk and Book Signing
Amagansett Free Library, 215 Main Street, Amagansett

6:00 p.m.

Join authors Jane Weissman and Janet Braun-Reinitz at the library for a fascinating discussion about their new book, "Images of the African Diaspora in New York City Community Murals," recently published by University Press of Mississippi.

New York City's community murals are often seen as a tool to beautify, educate, protest, celebrate, and often motivate residents to action. Often collaborations between artists and neighborhood groups, these painted walls reflect the social, cultural, and political climate of their times.

The result of six years of research and hundreds of interviews, On the Wall brings to light murals that were hitherto "lost" to history or unknown outside their immediate surroundings. Documenting six chronological periods, the book highlights significant murals and introduces the artists and sponsors that created them.

In relating the many fascinating stories behind the murals, the authors describe the interactions between artists and residents--including the controversies that have led to the destruction of several notable murals.

Funded in part by the New York Council for the Humanities, the Puffin Foundation, and Independence Community Foundation, Ms. Weissman and Ms. Braun-Reinitz will engage the audience with their experiences!

The Intersection of Art, Land Conservation and History in Our Community
Clinton Academy, 151 Main Street, East Hampton

4:30 p.m.

Land conservation serves many purposes, but foremost is the preservation of place, the historic quality of a community that would be lost if development were to move forward without proper planning. This capturing of the history of a place can also be found in the work of the "Plein Air Peconic" artists as they visit sites conserved with the help of the Trust, and create works of art "en plein air."

Please join us as we explore this interesting topic at a roundtable discussion, to be moderated by the Clinton Academy's Richard Baron, with participation by artists Casey Chalem Anderson, Kathryn Szoka and Eileen Dawn Skretch, and the Trust's John v.H. Halsey.

Reception to follow.
