Discussants for the event are: Elaina Richardson, president of Yaddo and former editor-in-chief at Elle magazine; NYU’s Harvey Dale, University Professor of Philanthropy and Law and director of the National Center on Philanthropy and the Law; Mary Schmidt Campbell, dean of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts; and Matthew S.

The final conversation, also held in NYU’s Hemmerdinger Hall, is “Art and Social Conflict: Culture Wars from 1930 to the Present” (Wed., Feb. 4, 2009, 6:30 p.m.).

Yaddo, the storied artists’ retreat in Saratoga Springs, NY, was founded in 1900. It was hailed by a contemporary observer as “a unique experiment, which has no parallel in the world of fine arts.” NYU is collaborating with Yaddo to host a series of evenings exploring issues in contemporary arts and letters. The programs will run in conjunction with a major exhibition at the New York Public Library, “Yaddo: Making American Culture”, which runs from Oct. 24, 2008 to Feb. 14, 2009. A concurrent exhibit at NYU’s Tamiment Library on Art and Politics runs through Feb. 28, 2009 (Bobst Library, 70 Washington Square South, 10th Floor).
