The Art of Community: a #Westbeth50 Oral History Conversation with Ralph Lee, George Cominskie, and Christina Maile


The entire “THE ART OF COMMUNITY“evening has been posted to GVSGP channel. Hear the stories, see the images and understand why the Westbeth Artists Housing has survived and flourished for the past 50 years, and in the years to come.


Join Explore Village Preservation on Monday Nov 9 at 6PM for an online night of recollection and celebration as we delve into the fifty-year history of Westbeth through the eyes of three long-time residents, artists, activists, and Village Preservationists.

Ralph Lee is a puppeteer known as the “father of the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade.”

George Cominskie is the former president of the Westbeth Artist Residents Council and a tireless advocate for landmarks in the Far West Village. Both are also Village Awardees and subjects of recently-released Village Preservation Oral Histories.

Christina Maile is a former landscape architect, playwright, printmaker, co-founder of the Westbeth Playwrights Feminist Collective, and a member of the original 1970 cohort of Westbeth. This conversation will no doubt be lively, full of memories, art, anecdotes, and reflections on Westbeth at 50.
