New York’s Gargoyles: The Immigrants Who Made...

02 October 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Organized by: Brooklyn Historical Society
Venue: Brooklyn Historical Society
128 Pierrepont Street

From the 19th-century European artisans who incised their imaginations into NYC’s ever-taller edifices, to the obsessive gargoyle hunters who rescued this distinctive American art form from ruin in the postwar period, John Freeman Gill tells a sweeping story of the creation, near demise, and ultimate salvation of some of the city’s most extraordinary visages. Join Gill, author of The Gargoyle Hunters: A Novel, for an illustrated talk about this quintessential New York adventure story. Moderated by journalist and documentary filmmaker Laurie Gwen Shapiro.
