December 10th- Joel Meyerowitz Speaks at the Museum of the City of New York

On Thursday, December 10, 6:30 pm DART Partners with the Arts at Museum of the City of New York to present Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks with photographer Joel Meyerowitz and author Phillip Lopate

From the announcement:
Join photographer Joel Meyerowitz and author Phillip Lopate, collaborators on Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks ( Aperture, 2009), for a discussion of the hidden pockets of wilderness that still exist within the city.

Legacy is part of a larger project that was initiated in 2006, when Meyerowitz was asked by Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe to document, interpret, and celebrate one of the city’s greatest legacies: nearly nine thousand acres of parks in the five boroughs that still exist close to their original pristine state, as well as areas within parks that have been left to revert to wilderness. When completed, the project will constitute the first extended visual record of New York’s parks since the 1930s. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks, currently on view at Museum of the City of New York.

December 10th- Amy Eckert Lecture at the Mpls Photo Center- “Writing an Artist Statement in 250 Words or Less”

On Thursday December 10, at 7PM Photographer Amy Eckert will be giving a lecture at the Mpls Photo Center “Writing an Artist Statement in 250 Words or Less”

From the announcement:

In Amy’s own words: “The ability to write clearly about one’s work is an essential skill for every artist, and an important ingredient for artistic and professional growth. This informative and participatory lecture will inspire you to find or improve your ability to communicate what your work is about. We will look at the work of other artists and examine how they write about their own work, as well as review the essentials to every good artist statement.”

Amy Eckert is a freelance photographer from New York who is now based in Minneapolis. Her work has been included in several Photo District News Photo Annuals, and in group shows at the powerHouse Arena and the DUMBO Arts Festival (Brooklyn), as well as the Museum of Fine Arts, (Houston). Her work has been featured at Slideluck Potshow, (Portland, OR) and The Silver Eye Center for Photography, (Pittsburgh), in The New York Times Magazine, and Visionaire. Amy is on the faculty of the School of Visual Arts, in New York, while also shooting assignments for commercial clients throughout the country. Her project, “Manufacturing Home” will be opening in April, 2010 at the Minneapolis Photo Center. For more information visit:,
