Virtual Artist Talk: Vinnie Bagwell on Victory Beyond Sims
In October 2019, Yonkers-based artist Vinnie Bagwell was selected by the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs to create a sculpture at 5th Avenue at 103rd Street to replace a statue of J. Marion Sims, the nineteenth-century gynecologist who experimented on enslaved black women to achieve his medical breakthroughs. On October 4, 2020, the artist joined HRM Director and CEO Masha Turchinsky for a discussion about its historical context and plans for its future installation.

 

Collection Conversations: Asher B. Durand & Alison Moritsugu
Asher B. Durand and Alison Moritsugu made choices while creating their two very different versions of landscape paintings, but in their process they are looking for an answer to the same big questions: how has human behavior affected nature and the environment, past and present, and how can we as artists help people to think about and reflect on their own impact so we can make the best choices for the future? Experiment with painting on an unusual surface in an open-ended art project designed for ages 8+.
