Campus art professor to attend March 11 book-signing event
Brooklyn, N.Y. — Hugh Bell, Adger Cowans, Donna Cameron and many other artists featured in Cynthia Maris Dantzic’s new book, "100 New York Photographers," will mingle with students, faculty and members of the public during a book-signing and benefit Thursday, March 11, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., inside the first-floor gallery of the humanities building on Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus.
Ms. Dantzic is a long-time professor of art at Long Island University and an award-winning author of over a half-dozen books on art. Her "100 New York Photographers" is a large-format book featuring nearly 450 color and black and white photographs taken by 100 photographers over the last 70 years. The photos vividly cover a wide range of subjects, including fashion, sports, music and social commentary.
Discounted copies of the book, which also features images from celebrated photographers Annie Leibovitz and Jay Maisel, will be sold during the event. Proceeds from the sales will benefit the Campus’ art department.
"I tried to include photographers with household names and others who are not as well known," said Ms. Dantzic, who was married to the late Jerry Dantzic, a highly-accomplished photojournalist.
Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus is located at 1 University Plaza at the intersection of Flatbush and Dekalb Avenues. For more information on the event and the book, call Cynthia Maris Dantzic at (718) 488 3350 or visit www.schifferbooks.com.
