Subway Lines: 6 (Astor Place); A, B, C, D, E, F, V (West 4th Street); R, W (8th Street). The conversation series is held in conjunction with the Corporation of Yaddo.

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. Santirocco, dean of NYU’s College of Arts and Science and the Angelo J. Ranieri Director of Ancient Studies. Rick MacArthur, publisher of Harper’s magazine, will moderate the session.

The event is free and open to the public. For further information, please contact the NYU College of Arts and Science Dean’s Office: 212.998.8100. 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).
