The project will collect oral histories of people who live in neighborhoods east of Bronx Park and train community members to conduct these interviews. Longtime residents and those who have worked in these neighborhoods are invited to share their stories, documenting an important past and present history. Interviews will be preserved at The&nbsp;Milstein Division&nbsp;of United States History, Local History, and Genealogy. Interviews will also be available in a circulating collection and accessible on the NYPL website.</p> <p>To listen to some of the first stories collected, please visit:&nbsp;http://oralhistory.nypl.org/neighborhoods/east-bronx</p> </div> </div> Artists Talk On Art: Critical Dialogues in the Visual Arts (Jefferson Market Library) http://www.nypl.org/node/282614 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Jefferson Market Library</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2015-01-28T18:30:00-05:00">Wednesday, January 28 - 6:30 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p>[[{"fid":"277570","view_mode":"default","fields":{"format":"default","field_file_image_alt_text[und][0][value]":"","field_file_image_title_text[und][0][value]":""},"type":"media","attributes":{"height":"94","width":"500","class":"media-element file-default"}}]]</p> <p>December 10: &nbsp;This&nbsp;panel will feature artists from the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts&#39; studio program as well as its leadership. &nbsp;The EFA&#39;s mission &quot;is dedicated to providing artists across all disciplines with space, tools and a cooperative forum for the development of individual practice.

However, unlike their abstract contemporaries they have been using the figure as the harbinger for spiritual and political expressionism. With no mainstream support they started to show their work at their own galleries and formed an artist&#39;s collective called&nbsp;Rhino Horn, where they created monumental exhibitions and attracted the attention of their peers and critics. The discussion will emphasize each artist&#39;s individual career and present a collective view on Figurative Expressionism as it began and where it is today.&nbsp;</p> <p>Moderator: Adam Zucker, art historian, curator and author Panelists: Jay Milder, painter Peter Passuntino,&nbsp;painter Organizer: Adam Zucker</p> <p>Janurary 28: &nbsp;To be announced!</p> &nbsp; &nbsp; </div> </div> Email for Beginners for the 50+ (Mid-Manhattan Library) http://www.nypl.org/node/284688 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Mid-Manhattan Library, 4th Floor PC Lab</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2015-01-28T18:30:00-05:00">Wednesday, January 28 - 6:30 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p>Learn how email works, sign up for a free email account, and learn about sending, replying to, forwarding messages and attachments.</p> </div> </div> English Conversation Program for Speakers of Other Languages Winter 2015 Columbus Library (Columbus Library) http://www.nypl.org/node/287691 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Columbus Library</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2015-01-28T18:30:00-05:00">Wednesday, January 28 - 6:30 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"> Classes are held three times a year (Fall, Winter, and Spring) and are&nbsp;for intermediate levels only.
