An eccentric and fascinating figure of the beat era, Harry Smith (1923-1991) pursued animation, art, music archiving, and wrapped his life in mysticism and creativity. Now The Whitney Museum of American Art celebrates his life with a new retrospective exhibition and accompanying festival.

Hosted in conjunction with Smith’s first solo museum exhibition, Fragments of a Faith Forgotten: The Art of Harry Smith, My Harry is a three-day celebration of his life and art, bringing together devoted friends, artists, musicians, and writers who have championed Smith since his death in 1991. 

The program includes contributions from: 

  • Carol Bove
  • Ali Dineen,
  • Bradley Eros
  • Raymond Foye
  • April & Lance Ledbetter
  • James Inoli Murphy
  • Rani Singh
  • Peter Stampfel
  • Charles Stein
  • Anne Waldman

And more!

Activities during the festival include a stop motion animation workshop, singing circles, concerts, panel discussions, screenings and more.
