Malkin Lecture Series


Launched in 2007, the Malkin Lecture Series presents scholars and experts on topics and themes relating to the Park Avenue Armory and its pivotal role in the civic, cultural, and aesthetic evolution of New York City in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In this election year, we are focused on our American presidents, past and future, and will then conclude the series with a musical entertainment in time for the holidays.
