Alumni Arts & Society featuring Ann Fensterstock (MA '99) and ART ON THE BLOCK

Ann Fensterstock


Shifting markets, motives, and artist migrations continually re-shape the urban arts scene and ultimately New York City. This Alumni Arts & Society program will take you on a five-decade journey, following these creative communities across the five boroughs and examining the contemporary art that has emerged from this ever-evolving culture.


Join us as Professor Emeritus Laurin Raiken and alumna author Ann Fensterstock (MA ’99) discuss the commercialization of art, the gentrification of neighborhoods and New York City's response to it all. From Fensterstock’s debut work of cultural history, “Art on the Block: Tracking the New York Art World from SoHo to the Bowery, Bushwick and Beyond.”
