THIRTEEN’s NYC-ARTS Presents Greatest Hits in August

Air date: 08/01/2019

This month NYC-ARTS will revisit some of its most compelling profiles of creative individuals, as well as “insider views” of a wide range of innovative exhibitions in the arts and cultural scene of New York City and the tri-state area.

Among the individuals featured this month are Yannick Nezet-Seguin, Music Director of the Metropolitan Opera, as well as award-winning tap dancer Ayodele Casel, pianist and Avery Fisher Career Grant winner Drew Petersen, and contemporary artist Nari Ward.   Also included is an “encore” of a conversation with Asher Miller, curator of the acclaimed exhibition “Delacroix,” previously on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The series will also revisit the “Andy Warhol – From A to B and Back Again” exhibition previously on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art and “Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth” exhibition previously on view at The Morgan Library & Museum. With a nod to the 2019 US Open this summer, the series will also feature a segment on the International Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum on August 29.

NYC-ARTS, THIRTEEN’s weekly arts and culture multi-platform showcase, brings arts lovers an all-access pass to the interesting, unusual and unique cultural offerings of the greater New York City region.

Co-hosted by New York Emmy Award winners Philippe de Montebello and Paula Zahn, NYC-ARTS showcases both world-renowned and local, community-based arts organizations.
