Hokusai and the Heyoke
by Nancy Kirk

Using animals, symbols, and references of Native American origin,
the images are combinations of different blocks that come together in monotype prints.
The results are pictographs commenting on the human condition as it relates to our
interactions with each other and the planet Earth.

Nancy Kirk has a passion for abstract and traditional Japanese art. Her studies reach from The California College of Arts and Crafts to the opera in Florence, Italy to the Parsons School of Design. She has worked as a scenic painter for opera and ballet, illustrator, painter, and muralist. She worked to assist in the restoration of historic Broadway theatre murals and was asked to add original work to the Golden Theater in New York City. Her residential mural work shows the influence of the Hudson River School of painters and graces many beautiful homes on the North Shore of Long Island.

Seiko Group Ikebana Flower Arrangements Display
Opening Reception
Spirits of Autumn

Members of the Seiko Group created these twenty Ikebana floral arrangements on display.  Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arrangement. It is more than simply putting flowers in a container. It is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing, where nature and humanity are brought together. “Ike” means to arrange, and “bana” (originates from the word Hana) means flowers. Ikebana dates back to the 6th century when priests first decorated flowers at temples. These were large arrangements that took a couple of days to complete.  Ikenobo Senkei, Buddhist priest, created the earliest form of Ikebana. Now there are some thousands of different schools that have developed for teaching Ikebana. Ohara, Sogetsu, Ichiyo, Rhusei-ha and Ikenobo are popular schools for this art form in Japan.

Beyond the Yellow Brick Road: The Story of The Wizard of Oz as a Political Allegory
Thomas Egan

Beyond The Yellow Brick Road is an analysis of the classic movie Wizard of Oz. This discussion takes us beyond the story line of the script and into one of pop culture’s most famous allegories.    Hidden within its words and characters is a tale of American political and cultural movements from the turn of the 20th century.  With the Populism Movement as the central backdrop, this discussion analyzes the correlation between American life in the late 1800s and life in the fictional land of Oz.    Actual historical figures - such as two time presidential candidate and Scopes Trial prosecutor, William Jennings Bryan - are also discussed as part of a larger meaning behind this classic tale. 

Thomas Egan is a professor of American History at Briarcliffe College.

They All Sang On The Corner
Lecture Presentation by Robert Cohen

In almost any ethnic neighborhood in the early 1950s there was a special sound - on street corners under lamplight or moonlight, under boardwalks or elevated train lines, inside hallways and under stairwells of schools and dwellings. Explore the components of the style of vocal group harmony singing that became known as “doo-wop” — “the forgotten third of rock ’n roll.” Consider its musical, social, cultural, and religious roots; and hear how this music, in its innocence and quest for harmony, so beautifully conveyed the poetry of inner-city life. Examples will be given from black, white, integrated groups and from all five boroughs of New York City.

Robert Cohen’s programs grew from teaching New York City music at the New School in New York; from many years of showcasing Jewish (and some American folk and popular) music on the radio -- on several original series in New York and on NPR's "One People, Many Voices: American-Jewish Music Comes of Age" (now in the permanent collection of the Paley Center for Media in New York); and from studying Graduate Education at the Jewish Theological Seminary. New York Council for the Humanities speaker.

Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer visual lecture by Thomas Germano

Thomas Germano, Professor of Art and Art History will present a visual lecture on the life, times and work of Michelangelo Buonarroti and introduce the works related to this 'once in a lifetime exhibition' in NYC.  

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564) was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. Because of this, his contemporaries called him 'il divino,' or, 'the divine one.'

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition (November 13, 2017 - February 12, 2018) will present approximately 150 of Michelangelo's drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, and many complementary works by other artists for comparison and context. The complete series of masterpiece drawings created for Tommaso de' Cavalieri and a monumental cartoon for his last fresco in the Vatican Palace will be among the works coming to the Met's exhibition. Selected from 54 public and private collections in the United States and Europe, the exhibition will examine Michelangelo's rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer.

Can Holocaust Trauma Be Inherited?  The Complex Genetic Legacy of the Second Generation presented by Linda F. Burghardt, Ph.D, Scholar-in-Residence, Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center

Psychological research has clearly documented how the profound legacy of loss and suffering experienced by Holocaust survivors deeply affects their children. Now biologists are saying that genetics can play an even larger role in transmitting this trauma to the next generation.  Dr. Burghardt will describe the science behind these claims and explain how this genetic legacy can have far-reaching consequences for the children of survivors -- and their own offspring.

Dr. Linda Burghardt is a journalist and author from Great Neck and the daughter of Holocaust survivors from Vienna.  She holds a Ph.D. from LIU Post and currently serves as Scholar-in-Residence at the Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center in Glen Cove.  She worked for many years as a reporter for The New York Times and is the author of three books.  Her articles and essays have appeared in newspapers across the U.S., and she has lectured to both national and international audiences.

History of the Great Neck Lighthouse
Great Neck Historical Society

Great Neck Historical Society

Stepping Stones Lighthouse, an essential aid to navigation, was built in 1876 to protect ships from a dangerous boulder reef which exists in Long Island Sound very close to the tip of Great Neck.  The Lighthouse is located less than a mile from our shore, and is best seen from Steppingstones Park, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Throgs Neck Bridge, City Island, and, of course, from the water.
 
The US Government has been divesting itself of its lighthouses, as it no longer has the funds to maintain them.  The Town of North Hempstead has agreed to attempt to rehabilitate the Lighthouse, and has partnered with the Great Neck Historical Society and the Great Neck Park District to accomplish this task. 
 
The Lighthouse is in dire need of repair.  There are holes in the foundation and in the roof.  The chimney is broken, the inside has been gutted, and ice has been a major problem resulting in more and more cracks.  If the Lighthouse is not repaired, and if it succumbs to the weather, the government will erect a metal tower with a light at the top, and we will lose sight of the history that the Lighthouse represents.
 
It is the goal of the Historical Society, the Town and the Park District to restore the Lighthouse so that we may lead tours of the structure and safely share this relic of the past with the community.
