About NEW LEAF CAFÉ: New Leaf's spectacular fieldstone cottage was built by John D. Rockefeller in the 1930s. Designed by the famous Olmsted Brothers, this beautiful building was restored by New York Restoration Project (NYRP), a non-profit founded by Bette Midler and her friends to create and restore New York’s parks and community gardens. In the ensuing years, Midler, NYRP, and a team of talented artists and architects transformed the former park concession into a celebrated fine-dining establishment.
About WALLACH GALLERY: The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery has advanced Columbia University’s historical, critical and creative engagement with the visual arts since 1986 and brings the University’s diverse approaches to the arts to a broader public.
This exhibition explores the changing modes of representation of the black figure as central to the development of modern art through archival photographs, films and correspondence.
