Art With A French Twist

Art history scholar Louise Cella Caruso will present a free visual art lecture “Musee d’Orsay, Paris” at 1:30 p.m. at the Garden City Public Library (GCPL) located at 60 Seventh St. Discover the unique transition from train station to art museum and its collection during this illustrated talk. The 1898 Beaux-Arts railway station Gare d’Orsay was shuttered in 1939 due to short platforms unsuitable for longer trains. Originally constructed for the Universal Exposition of 1900, it now houses the largest collection of impressionist & post-impressionist masterpieces in the world by painters including Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin and Van Gogh. This public program is funded by Friends of the Garden City Public Library. Garden City residents will be given priority by presenting their GCPL card at the program room door. Non-residents will be accommodated on a space available basis 10 minutes before show time. No saved seats. Limited parking. No tickets are required. For directions, please call 516-742-8405.

Comic legends Bob Hope and Jack Benny were an integral part of the 20th Century’s entertainment landscape. There were just a handful of gifted performers who adapted seamlessly to new opportunities, technologies and challenges. Hope and Benny moved effortlessly from burlesque to vaudeville to radio to television and movies thanks to the duo’s mastery of comedic timing. Yet their styles were polar opposites of one another with one common result: they were two very funny men. For more than 25 years noted playwright, comedy writer/theatrical director Sal St. George has developed unique and compelling programs that chronicle the lives of America’s greatest leaders, legends & icons. He has entertained the masses with his quick wit & stylish humor creating main stage theatrical productions as well as inventive programs for national and local clients, including museums, cultural centers, planetariums, zoos, & historic sites. Garden City residents will be given priority by presenting your Garden City Public Librar card at the program room door. Non-residents will be accommodated on a space available basis 10 minutes before showtime. No saved seats. Limited parking. No tickets are required. For directions, please call 516-742-8405.
