The Gold Coast of Long Island is getting a new and exciting addition to its rich cultural offerings with the start of the Frick Estate Lectures. The series, taught by leading experts in the field, will offer a selection of non-credit personal enrichment courses in art, history, literature, philosophy, music and current affairs.
Among the courses for this coming fall are: “Musicals of the 1930s,” “The Secret of the Great Pyramid,” “Van Gogh’s Wheat Fields,” “Nietzche: A Philosophical Epitome,” “Classicism in Art through the Ages,” “Artists on Film,” “Dickens’ David Copperfield,” and “World Politics: America in a New World.” The full catalogue of courses will soon be available online at thefrickestatelectures.org or can be mailed to anyone who calls 516-415-1101 and leaves their contact information.
The program, led by Dr. Kay Hutchins Sato, is designed to offer a rich and diverse learning experience for participants who savor the pleasures of the arts, humanities and current events as well as the challenges of guided discussions. Sato, a lifelong educator, has worked in the field for over 25 years and has received both national and local awards for her model adult programs. She will be honored at a special luncheon at the Nassau County Museum of Art, where the courses will be taught this fall, on Thursday, June 26, from 12 to 2 p.m.
Dr. Ralph Buultjens, internationally acclaimed commentator on world affairs, will serve as the keynote speaker for this event, and will discuss some of his observations in a presentation entitled “Making a New World: America and Global Politics.” Tickets for this luncheon may be purchased by calling 516-415-1101.
The Nassau County Museum of Art is located 20 miles east of New York City on the former Frick “Clayton” Estate, a 145-acre property in Roslyn Harbor in the heart of Long Island’s Gold Coast. The grounds include the museum, a sculpture park featuring many of the most important artists of the 20th century, and a formal garden and arboretum that include rare specimen trees and marked walking trails.
