You’ll have a great time at this thrilling event—about painting, music, & everyone’s life!
A dramatic presentation of the lecture by Eli Siegel: “Vermeer: His Meaning”
in which he said:
“The thing that has taken people about Vermeer is, he insists on seeing the world as delicate, gentle, but subtle. It’s not the gentleness of tameness–it’s the gentleness of the truth behind the storm.”
And–“Do You Have an Attitude to the World?”
A reenactment of an Aesthetic Realism Lesson
“Do you think there is a relation between not wanting the world to be as good as it could be and not wanting a person to be as good as she could be?” –Eli Siegel
And “Greatness in Music: Chopin’s Waltz in A Flat”
Performed and commented on by composer Edward Green, of the Manhattan School of Music. He asks: “Is this melody rising hopefully, or sinking with uncertainty? It seems to be doing both.”
