Chairman’s Evening

Whether you can change things or not, that does not relieve you of responsibility.
You have to fight.

Musician and writer Patti Smith and author Salman Rushdie joined MacDowell Chairman and author Michael Chabon for a wide-ranging discussion at The Whitney Museum in New York on December 4. Before an invitation-only crowd of 130 guests, the trio talked politics, how they wrote, and what they were currently working on during a conversation modeled on dinner banter between artists at The Colony. The evening included a tour of MacDowell’s new offices, a Q&A session with the audience, and a cocktail reception afterward. You can listen to the entire program here.
