New York Theatre Ballet Presents Conversations on Art & Artists
A new three-part series hosted by New York Theatre Ballet School. Discussions led by museum educator Jane Royal on January 27, February 10, and March 3 at New York Theatre Ballet School, St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery, 131 E. 10th Street in New York City.

Explore connections that are not often addressed in the traditional canon of Art History as well as discuss underrepresented artists from both Western and non-Western cultures. Contemplate the role that the broader society (social, political, econimic, etc.) had in shaping our understanding of these works within the historical periods in which they were created.
