Public Lecture Series with Andrew Rowen - Explorers Club Inc
February 12, 2018 - New York

1492 Retold: A Bicultural Reexamination of Columbus's Epic Voyage Andrew Rowen is the author of Encounters Unforeseen: 1492 Retold, which dramatizes the history of Columbus's epic voyage and first encounters with Native Americans from a bicultural perspective, presenting Native American beliefs, thoughts, and actions side by side with those of Columbus and other Europeans, all closely based on primary sources and anthropological studies. Rowen's talk explores how and why the encounters in 1492 and 1493 enfolded as they did from both peoples' perspectives. He will summarize geographical, social, and religious beliefs and practices of the Taíno chieftains and peoples who met Columbus side by side those of Columbus and Spain's Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand. Building on this background, he will examine how these beliefs and practices played out in a few of the encounters' key moments as Columbus's voyage of "discovery" traveled about the Caribbean in 1492. None of the participants could discern the violence and battlegrounds of the ensuing centuries, and a key question for them was whether the other peoples would be friend or enemy.

How Art Can (and Can't) Save a Place - 92nd Street Y
February 16, 2018 - New York

Art has played a central role in three wildly different communities: Fogo Island, Newfoundland, a remote fishing community in the North Atlantic; Sag Harbor; and Greenwich Village. These areas — one profoundly remote, another more suburban and the other fully urban — are so different yet share one thing. Being home to artists and the art they create has defined these communities culturally, economically and in countless other ways. We will hear from Zita Cobb, who has helped usher in an artistic and economic renaissance in Fogo Island; Eric Fischl, the celebrated painter known for capturing his native Long Island; and Adam Davidson, economics writer for The New Yorker who grew up and is on the board of Westbeth, the artist housing that helped transform the Meatpacking district of Greenwich Village. They will discuss how art can best interact with local communities, how it can be abused and what lessons their very different experiences share in common.
