More about the program’s participants:

Susan Meiselas, who graduated from Sarah Lawrence in 1970, is a documentary photographer, author, and director well known for her documentation of human rights issues in Latin America. She started her career teaching in the South Bronx using the camera to help connect and provoke discussions with her students. This quickly turned into a photography career using her art for social change, from her studies of carnival strippers to her documenting political upheaval in Nicaragua and Kurdistan. In 1992, she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship and in 2015 was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. Mediations, a survey exhibition of her work from the 1970s to present, was recently exhibited at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Jeu de Paume, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Eduardo Cadava is an author, contemporary critic, and theorist specializing in American literature and culture, comparative literature, media technologies and theory, political theory, and translation theory. He is a professor of philosophy at the European Graduate School and Princeton University. He is currently working on a collection of essays on the ethics and politics of mourning and co-directing a multiyear project on the relationship between political conflict and climate change.

Joel Sternfeld is a photographer/artist with exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The recipient of two Guggenheim fellowships and a Prix de Rome, he is the author of American Prospects, On This Site, Stranger Passing, and ten other books. Sternfeld holds the Noble Foundation Chair in Art and Cultural History at Sarah Lawrence College.

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
