On Saturday, July 20, at 2 p.m. at Guild Hall in East Hampton, Eric Fischl will lead the first itinerant event sponsored by The Church, Mr. Fischl and April Gornik’s new arts initiative in Sag Harbor. The Church is a former Methodist Church that is being renovated by the couple, who are both artists, as an arts-incubator and artists-in-residence center.

Although presently under construction, the collaboration with Guild Hall gives The Church an opportunity to host this discussion that brings together luminaries of the art world known for their philanthropy and vision. Called “Art as Ecosystem,” the panelists are: FLAG Art Foundation’s Glenn Fuhrman, Roy Lichtenstein Foundation President Dorothy Lichtenstein, and MacArthur Genius artist Rick Lowe, head of Project Row Houses. The focus of the discussion will be to identify the way art impacts communities and the world, and the way in which philanthropy invests in a community’s future and connection.

A second panel discussion will follow on August 24 with Christine and Andy Hall of the Hall Art Foundation, business strategist and inaugural director of the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Christy MacLear, and renowned president of the New York Academy of Art, David Kratz.

Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street in East Hampton. The public is invited to attend “Art as Ecosystem,” which is produced by Elise Trucks. Tickets are available at guildhall.org and at the door. For more information about The Church, visit sagharborchurch.org.
