92Y & MacDowell Salon Series

December 31, 2021

Over the course of 2021, the 92nd Street Y and MacDowell will partner to present a series of salons about the arts and creativity. Join us for a front-row seat to the type of unscripted, interdisciplinary conversations that happened every day at MacDowell. Following the free, public, virtual talks hosted by the 92Y, MacDowell supporters also have the opportunity to join the panelists in an intimate virtual reception, exclusively for MacDowell supporters.
