A Modern Man: Nikos Bel-Jon, Presented by Brittany Reilly
August 11th, 2016, Maple Grove Cemetery, Kew Gardens, New York
Upon the 50th-anniversary of his passing, the Friends of Maple Grove Cemetery and the family of Nikos Bel-Jon welcomed guests to commemorate the artist’s achievements and impact. Having connected with Nikos’ daughter, Rhea, years earlier during her research into the artist’s remarkable commercial commissions, Brittany was honored to accept the invitation to speak about his work in the context of the mid-20th century period. Surrounded by a fascinating range of archival material from the family’s collection, we enjoyed conversation during this unique celebration of his creative process.
