Originally a Native American trail and Dutch farm road, the Bowery is NYC’s oldest thoroughfare, with links to tap dance, vaudeville, Yiddish theater, Abstract Expressionism, Beat literature, and punk rock. Despite its NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES listing, it is one of America’s most endangered streets.
This lecture accompanies Ottendorfer’s current exhibition and is presented by Onno de Jong (artist) and David Mulkins (educator).
