PLAIN or FANCY, RESTRAINT and EXUBERANCE: A Conversation about Taste at the Met
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has invited ADSNY to attend an evening of conversation between noted author and cultural critic, Wayne Koestenbaum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Iris and Gerald B.

This is not an Art Deco Society of New York event, however, ADSNY is a great fan of Hildreth Meiere’s work and believe in supporting and sharing this opportunity.
Join the Historic Districts council for a very special two-part Secret Lives Tour: The Art Deco Murals of Hildreth Meière. Hildreth Meière (1892-1961) was a renowned Art Deco muralist, whose numerous commissions grace government and commercial buildings and houses of worship across the country. In midtown Manhattan alone, Meière’s mosaics decorate Temple Emanu-El and St. Bartholomew’s Church, where she also designed the stained glass clerestory windows. Her enormous mixed-metal and enamel sculptures adorn the façade of Radio City Music Hall. In lower Manhattan, Meière’s mosaics can be seen in the dramatic Red Banking Room at One Wall Street, and in the landmarked lobby of the Walker-Lispenard Building. Curator Catherine Coleman Brawer, author of Walls Speak: The Narrative Art of Hildreth Meière, will lead two tours, one Uptown & one Downtown. Each tour will run approximately 2.5 hours.
Tuesday, April 23rd — 1pm
$125 for public; $100 for Friends of HDC

The Beaux Arts Alliance in collaboration with the Art Deco Society of New York presents Ernst Lubitsch’s Monte Carlo (1930; 90 mins.) starring Jeanette McDonald as a sexy countess who leaves her prince fiancé at the alter and runs off to the Riviera where she meets and falls for the handsome Count Rudolph (Jack Buchanan) who poses as a hairdresser in hopes of getting closer to her. This delightful early musical features the hit song “Beyond the Blue Horizon” and some of the most ravishing Art Deco sets to grace the silver screen.
