Virtual Gallery and Art Tour with Riva Blumenfeld
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Artists have been telling stories for generations, but contemporary artists add to the
complexity of their narratives by using materials that resonate with the meaning of their
stories like coffee, cotton, beads, and thread.  We'll look at recent exhibitions by young
and mid-career artists: Roberto Lugo, Chase Hall, Jeffrey Gibson (the artist
representing the U.S. in the Venice Biennale in 2024), and Ghada Amer.  Please join
Riva this month as she takes us on a specially curated tour of this fall’s most intriguing gallery shows.
Riva Blumenfeld is an art historian and educator with 40 years of experience in the art field. Riva was
educated in Art History at Washington University in St. Louis and has taught Art Education at the Museum
of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Having owned an art
gallery in Soho for a short period, Riva has a unique knowledge of New York City’s art scene and offers
insight into the sometimes-intimidating world of New York City art galleries. Prior to the pandemic, Riva
conducted small group tours of NYC’s art world.

All registrants will be sent the Zoom link the day of the program. Please register no later than 4 pm that day to receive the link.

  • How the Supreme Court decision will impact the college admissions process and how a student’s ability to express their insights, experiences and personal growth will become even more important.
  • Current college admissions trends
  • The importance of researching and visiting colleges to find schools that can be a good fit for your child
  • Timeline and other action steps that can be taken to make this second half of the school year productive and help reduce the stress around the college admissions process.
  • The holistic admissions review process, what admissions officers consider important when they review applicants, and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative to increase their chances for admission.
  • Additionally, the importance of community service, how it can provide an opportunity for personal growth and a way to showcase a student’s character. Admissions officers place great emphasis on a student’s character and how the student has been able to give back and help others. This program is recommended for parents and their high school teens.  

The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC. (www.standoutforcollege.com)
