Dance Performance |


Choreographer Jacqulyn Buglisi presents "9/11 Table of Silence Project." She was inspired to create the piece by Italian visual artist Rossella Vasta's sculptural installation of 100 ceramic plates that represent a banquet table uniting humanity. Given the unrelenting and tragic acts of terror and violence that continue in the world, "9/11 Table of Silence" remains as relevant and timely today as when it was first performed seven years ago.

The novel tells the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents’ house, a cliff-side mansion on the Italian Riviera. Unprepared for the consequences of their attraction, at first each feigns indifference to the other. What grows from the depths of their spirits is a romance of scarcely six weeks’ duration and an experience that marks them for a lifetime.  André Aciman is an American writer. He taught creative writing at New York University and French literature at Princeton and Bard College. Please read the book before arriving at the book discussion.

Opening Reception |


Artist Fredric Riskin reflects on the mystery, unseen political nuances and dark pain of the 9/11 attack as it remains an unhealed wound in the American psyche. The artist’s immersive installation explores that trauma; it examines our individual, collective, and government’s ongoing response to this catastrophe. It is the subsequent debasement of American values that gives the exhibition its title. Both somber and dramatic, the installation presents powerful iconic imagery in different media - print, canvas, video and sound.
