“Mad,” “incomprehensible,” “repulsive,” “ludicrous,” “rambling,” “outrageous,” “mystifying” – those were just a few of the words prominent critics, experienced listeners, and even some accomplished musicians used in the first decades of the 1800s to describe Ludwig van Beethoven’s works.  His music was always intense, dramatic, and deeply-expressive – but they often also inhabited mystical, ethereal, and primal realms (especially in his late works) that baffled and sometimes offended his audiences.  This session will travel to those regions we now revere as sublime and awe-inspiring to hear what Beethoven – deaf by his mid-30s – “heard” in his mind in some of the most enduring, searing, and profoundly eloquent musical works ever composed.

Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum: The Body in Bronze (November 17, 2017 through April 22, 2018) highlights the extraordinary tension in Rodin’s work between the figure itself and abstract form, allowing the fluid contours, animated surfaces, and emotional presence of these bronzes to emerge fully.  The exhibit places the works in their historical context, examining Rodin’s legacy and reputation, and exploring his sculptural practice and the bronze casting process.  Rodin heralded a new era in sculpture, and he is represented here through each phase of his prolific career, including both small and monumental works related to his best-known commissions.

This tour offers is a rare opportunity to spend "quality time" with the public art installations throughout our subway system.  The first stop is Times Square, where we will view spectacular murals by Roy Lichtenstein and Jacob Lawrence.  We will continue to explore Arts & Design (formerly Arts for Transit) commissions by Jack Beal, Toby Buonagurio, and Lisa Dinhofer.  Our final stop will be South Ferry, where the Starn Twins (whose sprawling piece, "Big Bambú," dominated the roof of the Metropolitan Museum in 2010) have recently completed "See It Split, See It Change," a site-specific installation featuring floor-to-ceiling glass walls laced with sparkling silhouettes of leaves and trees.  Open your eyes to all that awaits you on MTA platforms and passageways and discover the underground art collection in New York City.
