Village Preservation Executive Director Andrew Berman is best known for his tireless work advocating for the preservation and protection of our neighborhoods. But did you know that he is also a scholar of art and art history? In this special talk, Andrew will take a look at some of the great works of art which were inspired by or were a product of Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo, and the artists who were deeply rooted in the neighborhoods, from 19th-century traditionalists to the 20th-century avant-garde.
Andrew Berman has been the Executive Director of Village Preservation since 2002. He previously worked in state and city government, where he focused on issues including land use and historic preservation. In 2013, he was named to the Vanity Fair “Hall of Fame” for his preservation work at Village Preservation and was named one of the 100 Most Powerful People in Real Estate by the New York Observer. A lifelong New Yorker, Andrew has an Art History degree from Wesleyan University.
