A Cabaret for the Academy, Wednesday 2 December 09 in NYC


Get ready for a great party: the American Academy in Rome Cabaret, the evening of Wednesday 2 December 2009, in New York City.

Performers include Laurie Anderson, RAAR’06, Derek Bermel, FAAR’02, Molissa Fenley, FAAR’08…and more. The venue is hard to beat: the Angel Orensanz Foundation at 172 Norfolk Street, in New York’s Lower East Side.  It’s an ex-synagogue turned downtown event space.


The AAR Cabaret is a new event, that aims to be annual. It’s curated by Laurie Anderson, and designed by Fellows for Fellows, to benefit the Rome Prize fellowship.

Think of the Cabaret as a reunion of your “class” of Fellows, Residents, Affiliated Fellows, Visiting Artists and Scholars—a celebration of your time in Rome.  Anyone who has spent time at the Academy who can be there December 2nd will want to be there.

The Cabaret will also serve as a vivid introduction to the Academy. So please invite friends and colleagues who one day might be Fellows, Residents and Visitors to join the party.

Tickets are $150 per person prior to the event, $300 at the door.

If you would like to support the fellowship and want to make the event a great success by purchasing tickets or becoming a sponsor, please contact Jennifer Dudley at j.dudley@aarome.org or call her at (212) 751-7200, ext 12.

Mark your calendars and spread the word.
