Olga Kitt, Meeting the Muses
The Riverdale Y’s Artist of the Month is Bronx-based Olga Kitt.
On exhibit are unique, original pastels drawn during historical musical and dance performances. Ms. Kitt’s gestural pastel drawings capture the motion of specific artists in the moment of creating their art.
Ms. Kitt has documented seminal moments for dancers and musicians of the American Ballet Theatre, the New York City Ballet, the Bronx Arts Ensemble, dancing in the Streets Festival of Wave Hill, and more.
Due to popular demand, Ms. Kitt's work can be seen through the month of February.
