Treasures of New York: Chautauqua

April 24, 2017

The Chautauqua Institution was founded 135 years ago in a remote corner of Western New York as a place of learning, renewal and inspiration. Chautauqua has always been — and continues to be — unique. It is a true utopia, where the arts, philosophy, current events, religion and education synergize and thrive. Treasures of New York – Chautauqua: An American Narrative traces the institution’s history and impact, and captures its contemporary essence and energy. From a NASA engineer, a former U.S Supreme Court Justice, renowned authors, scholars and performers, learn what makes Chautauqua one of the most distinctive summer destinations in America.

Treasures of New York: Chautauqua airs Thursday, April 27 at 8pm on WLIW and Sunday, April 30 at 7pm on THIRTEEN.
