Drawing Music - 92nd Street Y Event


Louise Kerz Hirschfeld, president of the Al Hirschfeld Foundation, and David Leopold, curator of the The Hirschfeld Century exhibition at the New-York Historical Society (May 22–Oct 12) and author of the companion book, Hirschfeld Century: Portrait of an Artist and His Age,  take the stage to discuss the life and work of this original and iconic artist, and the stories behind his drawings.

Dick Hyman will perform songs drawn from Al Hirschfeld’s magically inked images of Broadway shows and music stars, while a selection of these drawings is shown on stage.

This event, part of the 92nd Street Y's Jazz in July preview series, will be on Wednesday June 10th at 8pm, in Buttenweiser Hall (Lexington Avenue at 92nd St). Tickets for the event are $30.00
