If you’re looking for a captivating way to enjoy the beautiful evening tonight, we have two events at The New York Public Library that are sure to inspire:
At 6pm, renowned artist William Wegman discusses his stunning new book Hello Nature: How to Draw, Paint, Cook, and Find Your Way. He explores the unique artistic vision behind his work and his highly acclaimed career. He is joined by award-winning author Padgett Powell, whose fiction work also appears in the book, for a conversation, audience Q&A, and book signing.
Meanwhile, at Bryant Park, behind the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building Creative Time & LIVE from the NYPL present THE LAST PICTURES at 7pm:
Join artist and geographer Trevor Paglen, filmmaker Werner Herzog, and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Tracy K. Smith for a special evening under the stars in New York’s Bryant Park. This event, co-presented by Creative Time and LIVE from the NYPL, will feature a reading by Smith; Herzog and Paglen in conversation about cultural artifacts, space exploration, and the legacy of human civilization; and a presentation of the images included in The Last Pictures—a golden disc of images created by Paglen, to be launched into outer space attached to the exterior of communications satellite EchoStar XVI. Telescopes will also be provided for viewing the night sky by the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York. The event is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
