The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation to Honor Martha Graham with Plaque Installation

by Andrew Berman
June 15, 2015
New York, NY
The revolutionary artistic vision of dancer and choreographer Martha Graham (1894-1991) largely created the modern dance we know today. Graham, an essential part of the early- to mid-century Village arts scene, will be honored as part of GVSHP's Historic Plaque Program done in partnership with Two Boots highlighting the incredible people, movements and history connected to sites all around us.

Join us outside 66 Fifth Avenue (at 13th Street) for festivities at the building where Graham's company rehearsed and created groundbreaking new works in the 1930s and 40s.

This event is free, but RSVPs are required by emailing rsvp@gvshp.org or calling (212) 475-9585 ext. 35. Take a look at our past celebrations, including the former Fillmore East concert hall (blog, photos and video), the home of poet Frank O'Hara (blog, photos and video), and the site of radical saloonkeeper Justus Schwab (blog and photos).
