Over the past six years, I have spoken at libraries, museums and synagogues in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey on a variety of art related topics that go beyond the standard lecture on the visual arts. How Picasso survived during the war years, how artists througout history have coped with censorship, the unique story of Joseph Cornell, how photography offered greater opportunity for women and why landscape painting is still revelant, to name a few. I am a regular guest speaker at the New City, Chappaqua and New Canaan Libraries.
As we move into 2020 during a pandemic, I have started to work with libraries and organizations via live events on the internet.
Currently, I am booked up for the remainder of 2020, please contact me to schedule a date for 2021.

Dear Mr. Tisdell,
Thank you so very much for coming to the Actors Fund Home to share your wonderful program with our residents. Dreams and Shadows was a big hit with the group who attended.
