Re: [BKARTS] Brooklyn Museum Library Lecture: Walt Whitman and the Arts in Brooklyn



This post is appropriate to our discussion on GLBT issues, perhaps Michael,
being near NYC and Fire Island as well as a bevy of places in the Village
sympathetic to the GLBT cause could benefit, after all Whitman struggled
with his own sexual identity, if he wasn't outright gay, and the Stonewall
Inn is located right in the West Village, home of the GLBT movement.  

Best,

Walt Whitman and the Arts in Brooklyn

Did you know that Walt Whitman was acting librarian of the Brooklyn
Apprentice's Library (nucleus of the Brooklyn Museum Library) in 1835? 

Did you know that Walt Whitman wrote about the arts in Brooklyn
including exhibitions he saw at the Brooklyn Institute (formerly the
Brooklyn Museum)? 

Come hear representatives from The Walt Whitman Project
(http://www.whitmanproject.org/) recite from texts that Whitman wrote
about the arts in Brooklyn and from books that were in the Library when
Whitman was librarian. Representatives from Woodside Press
(http://www.woodsidepress.com/) will be on hand with a newly printed
chapbook of a Whitman poem on art and collecting.
