14Y After Dark: “Two Pieces” Gallery Tour

An evening of stop motion, poetry, Yiddish Modernism and drinks!

In this After Dark, artist and current LABA NY Fellow Danielle Alhassid collaborates with Professor Elazar Elhanan of City College New York – Graduate Center to present the relationship between stop-motion animation, poetry, and the Yiddish modernism that developed in New York. The session includes a tour of Alhassid’s work, and a short lecture-performance of the two. The evening will round out with a Q&A.

A cash bar featuring beer, wine, and soft drinks will be available. Guests must show proof of age to purchase alcohol.

About 14Y After Dark
The 14Y might be known for its fitness center and preschool, but we in Arts + Culture are thinking about fun for the grown-ups. That’s why we created 14Y After Dark, a monthly series that will feature exciting programming and activities just for adults.

From visual arts and gardening to pickling and board games, stop by the 14Y for an easy, fun, and very New York night out with friends and community.
