Yesterday, Red Rooster Harlem hosted an intimate art luncheon in honor of Harlem artist Philip Maysles and his current art collection, “The Comfort of Enlightenment.” We welcomed many esteemed guests like Studio Museum’s Thelma Golden, Veronica Chambers, and other artists like Delphine Diallo, John Ahearn, and Jason Kraus. The intimate luncheon served as an introduction for press and other guests to Philip’s collection currently hanging at Red Rooster. Philip proudly presented his collection inspired by Norman Rockwell’s piece “The Problem We All Live With,” and spoke of the history behind Rockwell’s creation and inspiration.Â
Red Rooster will also once again welcome Philip Maysles in the coming weeks as he also conducts a tour for a class of students from Harlem’s Children’s Storefront.
