In this follow-up to a sold-out lecture last March, Dean Kirkbride will summarize recent developments in preserving and transforming Kirkbride Hospitals for the Insane and the related efforts of PreservationWorks, a non-profit committed to this work. Dr. Kirkbride will be joined by Rusty Tagliareni and Christina Mathews to celebrate and discuss the launch of their new book, Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital, and screen several related video projects, including Greystone Rising (Jody Johnson, Lisa Marie Blohm, C. Mathews), which won Best of Architecture category at the 2016 New York City Drone Film Festival, and samplings from a documentary-in-process by Tagliareni and Mathews, Greystone’s Last Stand. Copies of Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital will be available for purchase and the event will include a book signing.
