Thought Gallery: Three Virtual Events To Keep You Busy This Week

Consider these recommendations for upcoming virtual talks, readings and more in and around New York City:

Video Introduction, Zoom Discussion and Q&A on Singin’ in the Rain with Film Historian Philip Harwood
Tuesday, June 23, 8 p.m.
Cinema Arts Centre
Live stream only
Learn the backstory of one of the greatest musicals ever made, including an overview of the intersecting lives of contributors like Arthur Freed, Gene Kelly, and Debbie Reynolds. After watching the film online (a small rental fee is required) reconvene for a post-film discussion ($10).

Reflections on Maintaining Creativity, Inspiration and Hope
Wednesday, June 24, 6:30 p.m.
Tibet House US
Live stream only
Hear reflections on staying energized during crisis from an unlikely panel: Bushido- and Buddhism-influenced artist (and descendant of the Last Samurai) Rima Fujita, author Pico Iyer, and chef Eric Ripert. The conversation will be moderated by Robert Thurman, until last year a professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia (suggested donation $50; sliding scale).

Virtual Exploration of the Planting Fields Estate & Coe Hall Mansion
Thursday, June 25, 5:30 p.m.
New York Adventure Club
Live stream only
Over a century ago, William and Mai Coe purchased a 400-acre estate on Long Island’s Gold Coast, filled the grounds with rare plants, brought in world-famous landscape architects, and built a 65-room mansion. Explore an extraordinary property on a docent Elizabeth Abrams on an illustrated virtual tour ($10).
