Ms. Lipton has served as Director of the Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art in Staten Island and has written many books, including Survival: Life and Art of the Alaskan Eskimos. She has a special interest in world art and cultures, and photography.
The public is invited, at no charge. The sponsor, Association of American University Women (AAUW), advances equity for women and girls, through advocacy, education, and research.
