About This Event
This Sunday at 4:00 p.m., the Gallery presents a ciné-concert and discussion with Leslie Amper in honor of the exhibition George Bellows. In addition to playing a vital role in the New York art scene of the early 20th century, George and Emma Bellows were regulars at concerts, vaudeville shows, dance events, and the cinema. A pianist herself, Emma accompanied silent movies and dance classes; George was a talented choral singer and drummer. Amper will discuss the musical life of the Bellows family and provide piano accompaniment to D. W. Griffith's The New York Hat (1912, 35 mm, 15 minutes), which was shot near Emma's childhood home.
This program is free of charge and takes place in the East Building Auditorium. Seating is first come, first served.
