The CCS Woodward Lecture Series is pleased to present Anne Pasternak for a free lecture on Thursday, November 29 at 7:30 p.m. in the Wendell W. Anderson Jr. Auditorium in the Walter B. Ford II Building on the College for Creative Studies campus.
Since the fall of 1994, Anne Pasternak has been the executive director of Creative Time, Inc., a non-profit public arts organization dedicated to commissioning and presenting the work of adventurous artists working with untried media, offering opportunities to experiment and engage new audiences. Projects under her artistic direction range from exhibitions and performances in the historic Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage, new sculptures in Grand Central Station, paintings in Coney Island and skywriting over Manhattan, to the "Tribute in Light," the twin beacons of light that illuminated the former World Trade Center site six months after 9/11, in honor of the lives lost there.
Pasternak has been committed to initiating projects that give artists the opportunity to innovate their practice, celebrate New York life, and reflect on contemporary society while engaging millions of people with art that permeates everyday urban life. In addition to her work at Creative Time, Pasternak curates independent exhibitions and contributes essays to numerous cultural publications.
Seating and Parking are both handled on a first come, first serve basis with parking available in the CCS parking structure as well as on surface streets near campus. Please see the map (PDF, 92 KB) for more details.
Established through a generous endowment by an anonymous donor, the Woodward Lecture Series annually brings six renowned artists to CCS for free public lectures, and learning sessions with CCS students.
