Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

New York City, April 5, 2022

After all… Dostoevsky belongs in New York!

CATALOGUE (PDF)

The Sheen Center for Thought and Culture in New York City is hosting an exhibit titled “Saved by Beauty: Dostoevsky in New York”. It is a visiual tribute to the 200th anniversary of the birth of Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-2021) and will last March 18 – April 30, 2022.

Having toured Greece and making its New York premiere at The Sheen Center, this exhibit spans two floors and gives visual expression to characters and existential and moral themes from the novels of Fyodor Dostoevsky through a variety of painting styles by 15 artists. Exhibit is featured at the New, Janet Hennessey Dilenschneider Gallery, and it is presented in collaboration with the Greek Orthodox Archdicese of America and St. Sebastian Press of the Western American Diocese, Serbian Orthodox Church.

These beautiful paintings are now welcome in New York, a city that exemplifies in many ways the extreme contradictions and creative struggles that Dostoevsky successfully described in his writings.

U vremenu kad se i umetnički svet na Zapadu zbog ratnih sukoba u Ukrajini vraća na modele ponašanja koji su prethodili opštoj tragediji Drugog svetskog rata, u Njujorku je otvorena izložba likovnih dela ispirisana životom i književnošću jednog najvećih ruskih i svetskih pisca Fjodora Mihajloviča Dostojevskog.

Reč je o radovima neformalne grupe slikara „Ohra“ i više savremenih grčkih umetnika, čija je postavka svoj izložbeni život počela prošlog septembra u Atini pod nazivom „San smešnog čoveka“, čime se Grčka priključila obeležavanju 200-godišnjice rođenja velikog klasika ruske i svetske književnosti.

Domaćin izložbe „Lepota spasava – Dostojevski u Njujorku“ je galerija Umetničkog Šin centra Njujorške nadbiskupije.

„Čovek može da živi bez nauke, može da živi bez hleba, ali bez lepote više ne može da živi”, citiraju u ovoj njujorškoj galeriji Dostojevskog povodom izložbe koja će trajati do 30. aprila.

We were all saddened to hear of the passing of iconic Rock singer Meat Loaf aged 74. With all the huge sustained musical success over the decades, it’s hard to imagine now how back in the 1970s no one was interested in the rock theatrical music of composer Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf.

The record labels they approached literally laughed at them – by 1976/77 people were dancing to disco and some were pogoing to punk rock.

Conventional wisdom said there was no market for a 350 lb guy singing epic eight-minute long Wagnerian-style rock anthems.

It took an unconventional, determined, dedicated Cleveland record executive, Steve Popovich to go with his instinct he had honed over 15 years to prove them all wrong and put Meat Loaf on the Musical Map of the World.

Arista records had laughed so hard at their audition, the executives even insulted composer Jim Steinman saying he should go out and buy real rock ‘n’ roll records so he could learn to write proper songs.

Tesla memorijalno društvo iz Njujorka saopštilo je da je preminuo dr Ljubomir Vujović, autor brojnih članaka posvećenih Tesli, koji učestvovao je i u mnogim TV, radio i novinskim intervjuima koji su imali za temu Teslin rad, ali i srpsku kulturu

Dr Ljubomir Vujović, predsednik Tesla memorijalnog društva iz Njujorka preminuo je u nedelju 28. novembra 2021. okružen porodicom u selu Komarno (Crna Gora).

Dr Vujović je bio lekar, pisac, filmski producent i jedna od vodećih ličnosti Teslinog pokreta u Americi. Njegov dugogodišnji volonterski rad imao je za cilj očuvanje sećanja na lik i delo Nikole Tesle i nikada neće biti zaboravljen. Neumorno je radio kao lekar u njujorškoj Metropoliten bolnici (Metropolitan Hospital) više od 50 godina.

Eisenhower je predstavio američko piće generalu Žukovu. Rus je htio još, ali Coca Cola nije smjela nalikovati na Coca Colu.

Tu nastupa crnogorski migrant Mladin Zarubica.

Pričali smo s njegovom djecom.

Globalno prepoznat pjenušavi napitak tamne boje. Coca-Cola.

Piće koje simbolizira kapitalizam i Ameriku.

No manje je poznato kako se u svrhu “diplomatskog rješenja” proizvodila prozirna Coca-Cola s čepom crvene zvijezde. Napravili su je Amerikanci kako bi podmitili Ruse, točnije slavnoga generala Georgija Žukova osobno.

Mladin Zarubica, dijete roditelja koji su migrirali iz Crne Gore u Ameriku, odigrat će u tome ključnu ulogu. Na osobnu molbu predsjednika Harryja Trumana, Zarubica se nakon Drugog svjetskog rata vraća u Europu kako bi u Lambachu uspostavio punionicu Coca-Cole s ciljem da podigne moral američkim trupama.

Prozirne Coca-Cole dosjetio se kao diplomatskog rješenja kako bi izbjegao blokadu transporta sirovina i samog proizvoda koji su im radili Rusi.

Na programu ovogodišnjeg Festa nalazi se i jedan neobičan, čudesan film. Amerikanac srpskog porekla, Aleksandar Jović, predstaviće publici svojih predaka dokumentarac "Iznad vrha” (Beyond the Peak), svoj prvenac o srpskoj pravoslavnoj zajednici iz Indijane koja je izvela neverovatan poduhvat.

Pri Crkvi Sv. Nikole u Indijanapolisu postoji udruženje duhovnih planinara, da ga tako nazovemo, koje spaja penjanje do najviših vrhova SAD sa molitvom. Njihov vođa je Dejvid Rajković, bivši planinar amater koji je, nakon preranog gubitka mlađeg brata Zakarija, odlučio da prekine desetogodišnju pauzu u penjanju i ode na najvišu tačku na koju može, ne bi li bio što bliže Bogu i zamolio ga da Zakariju obezbedi siguran put do raja.

Naučnica Gordana Vunjak-Novaković nominovana je za finalistkinju prestižne Evropske nagrade za pronalazače 2021 za inovativni doprinos u bio-medicinskom inženjerstvu, objavio je danas Evropski zavod za patente (EZP).

Rad srpsko-američke naučnice rešio je kompleksne probleme u vezi sa zamenom oštećenog tkiva, zbog čega je EZP odlučio da prvi put jedna je od troje finalista u prestižnoj kategoriji „Životno delo“ bude i naučnica iz Srbije.

„Tokom svoje naučne karijere, Gordana Vunjak-Novaković dala je ogroman doprinos inženjerstvu tkiva, jednom od najperspektivnijih načina za produženje ljudskog veka i poboljšanje kvaliteta života“, rekao je predsednik Evropskog zavoda za patente Antonio Kampinos, saopštavajući imena finalista za 2021. godinu.
