Blair Brown Digs Into Yaddo Archive
New York, NY (February 26, 2008) - Renowned actor and director Blair Brown will take to the stage at Yaddo’s April 10th New York City Benefit to honor the achievements of Yaddo’s artists with a program drawn from the colorful side of the Yaddo archive collection that will be celebrated in a major exhibition opening this fall at The New York Public Library.
Ms. Brown will direct and appear in a short program of readings highlighting some of the more entertaining and never-before-seen material from the Yaddo Archive. The April 10th event will be held at the Tribeca Rooftop, with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. and dinner at 7:30 p.m.
Benefit chairs A.M. Homes and James Siena are especially pleased to announce a unique sale of broadside prints created by Yaddo artists William Bailey, Joan Snyder, and Alexi Worth in collaboration with writers Mark Strand, Eliza Griswold, and Amy Hempel specifically for the event. Universal Limited Art Editions is producing the print sets, which will be offered in relatively small editions and sold online and at the benefit for $3,000 per set of three.
