Camping Out at the Met

With Stonewall 50 here, it is only fitting that our most prominent museums are featuring exhibits with a gay focus.

When Giants Ruled the Art Scene

Impresario is a word one doesn’t hear used too much in New York these days. It almost seems of an earlier epoch, when titans of the arts like Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Robbins, and George Balanchine strode through the city with creative electricity flying from their fingertips. They were part of a very small circle — almost exclusively white and Jewish, mostly men — who may have lived ostensibly straight lives, but both loved and made love to other men (Balanchine an exception, with his well-known pursuit of young ballerinas). They came of age in the 1930s and ‘40s and defined the arts and culture of the their times. Comment
