Opening Event With Patti Smith

As one of the early pioneers of New York City’s dynamic punk scene, Patti Smith has been creating her unique blend of poetic rock and roll for over 35 years. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007, Smith is considered the “punk poet laureate.” In her National Book Award-winning memoir Just Kids, she offered a never-before-seen glimpse of her remarkable relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in the epochal days of New York City and the Chelsea Hotel. Her latest, M Train (Deckle Edge; $25.00), is a lyrical meditation on endings and on beginnings, augmented by stunning black-and-white Polaroids taken by Smith herself. Take the M Train with Patti Smith in her poetic tour de force across a landscape of creative aspirations and inspirations, told through the prism of cafés and haunts she has visited and worked in around the world.
Admission tickets will be required for entrance into this presentation. Tickets are $30 for the general audience (plus a $2 handling fee charged by our ticketing provider, IMG Tickets) and include a copy of M Train by Patti Smith. Tickets for this event will be available on November 4, 2015 at 10 a.m.
