January 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm
Share in an exquisite architectural journey along one of the most significant concentrations of artists’ studio apartment buildings in Manhattan–the eight buildings of the West 67th Street Artists’ Colony Historic District–with esteemed historian Prof. Andrew Dolkart. LANDMARK WEST! is honored to have Prof. Dolkart, the preservation historian who wrote the national designation report on all of these buildings, lead us along West 67th Street in this exclusive online program bursting with rare historic photos and fascinating details. From the painted murals of Poetica, Pictura and Musica in the lobby of Central Park Studios to the Tiffany lamp illuminating the entry to Sixty-Seventh Street Studios to the 30-inch thick soundproof walls of the Musician’s building and the neo-Gothic façade of the Hotel des Artistes, this is an undeniably spectacular collection of buildings.
We invite you to share in this one-evening-only architectural journey exploring one of the most significant concentrations of artists’ studio apartment buildings in Manhattan.
