The recent appearance of Joe Pintauro’s photographs in galleries and in print came as a surprise to those who know him as a prolific playwright, poet, novelist, and longtime fixture of the theatrical and literary worlds. When he received Guild Hall’s lifetime achievement award in 2008, it was for the literary arts. There was no mention of photography.
Maya Lin at the Parrish
The Parrish Art Museum’s Platform series, which consists of artist-driven projects that approach exhibition and programming in unconventional ways, will present seven works by Maya Lin from tomorrow through Oct. 13.
Since 1981, when Ms. Lin won a public design competition for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., at the age of 21, she has established herself as one of the most important public artists of our time.
Filmed in Bellport over a period of 18 days for $700,000, "The Maid's Room" has the look of an expensive Hollywood production. “We did everything we could to make a local film, but not a small film,” says Michael Walker, its director.
