The Salmagundi Club

The Florence Academy of Art U.S. (Jersey City) is proud to present a new panel-discussion series beginning this fall in New York City titled “FAA Dialogues.” Florence Academy of Art U.S.’s Academic Director Jordan Sokol and his faculty are partnering with the historic Salmagundi Club — which this year celebrates 100 years on Fifth Avenue — to offer this free educational series to the public.

The first discussion will be held on Thursday, November 30 from 6:30-8 p.m. and will be moderated by Fine Art Connoisseur Editor-in-Chief Peter Trippi, with panelists Jacob Collins, Alex Kanevsky, Donald Kuspit, and Alyssa Monks. The topic is “Traditional vs. Contemporary Perspectives in the Art World,” and the panelists will look at this theme from the angles of contemporary-art-world definitions, art production, the art market, the infrastructure of the traditional art world vs. the infrastructure of the contemporary art world, and more. There will be an open Q+A with the audience at the end of the panel.

Those who are interested in attending can RSVP at [email protected]. To learn more, visit the Salmagundi Club.
