The Artful Jewels of the Hamptons
Travel virtually with Debbie Wells of Artful Circle to the Hamptons! Explore two incredible artful sites located on Long Island’s East End just minutes away from each other – The Leiber Collection and the Pollock-Krasner House & Studio. Together, we will discuss Judith Leiber's rise to fame as a handbag designer to celebrities, American First Ladies, movie stars and more. As a Jew growing up in Budapest during the years leading up to WWII, her circumstances were difficult. Learn how she became a master craftsperson in the world of fashion, grew an empire and ultimately built a museum with her husband on their Long Island estate to house their collections and preserve their artistic legacy. We will also take a short “drive” to a nearby locale where the famous Abstract Expressionist Jackson Pollock lived with his fellow artist and wife, Lee Krasner. To see how they lived and created in this environment is a special treat!
