National Arts Club
 Inaugural Archaeology Award
Presented to Archaeology Magazine


Peter Young Editor–in-Chief
Accepts First Ever Award on Behalf of Team

In an era in which we are seeing the demise of popular magazines,
it is indeed refreshing to hear of a publication over a half century old not only going strong but winning accolades and prizes along the way.
On October 14, the recently formed Archaeology Committee of
The National Arts Club chose as its inaugural award recipient
Archaeology Magazine which since its founding in 1948 has
investigated human origins and studied ancient and not-so-ancient peoples and cultures. Peter A, Young the publication’s
Editor-in-Chief accepted the award on behalf of the
magazine’s staff.


Who could have imagined that Dali, exemplar of fantasies surreal,
would give birth to an Archaeology Committee! Therein lays a tale.
As Michele Kidwell explains it, “In 2005, Club members traveled
to Philadelphia to tour its Dali exhibition.  Conversations flowed.  
Some of us on the bus spoke with National Arts Club president
O. Aldon James
about the demise of archaeology evenings.
Wondrous programs often coordinated with articles from
ARCHAEOLOGY Magazine.  Aldon challenged me with Peter's
name.  One glorious summer day, the three of us had lunch,
discussing ways to merge our individual visions into a singular
creative forum.  Within a year, independent lectures germinated
 nto a series.  Thus, metamorphically the Archaeology Committee
was conceived from the soul of Dali”.

For its first award The Medal of Honor for Distinguished Coverage of the Field of Archaeology Worldwide, The Archaeology Committee
fittingly honored the premier publication in its field.  Enjoyed by the general public and scholars alike, ARCHAEOLOGY Magazine is
the world's prime venue for disseminating archaeological information.  The journal inspires an ever expanding audience for this exciting
discipline. It, moreover, cultivates the life of the Club through
involvement in stimulating programs.


During cocktails in the library of the landmark Samuel Tilden
Mansion home to the National Arts Club, guests were able to view
four selections from The Club’s Permanent Collection curated by
Carol Lowrey
, Curator of the Permanent Collection. Lowrey chose works of”pictorial archaeology” which included Charles Curran’s portrait
of the stately Dewey Arch in New York; Harry L. Hoffman’s
“A Savannah Market” depicting commercial life in the early 1900s; George Wharton Edwards’ Old Wishing Gate-Dinan, Brittany and Dean Cornwell’s colorful, “A Pot-seller in Bethlehem, a work that alludes to the role of the craftsman in the Holy Land.


Members of the National Arts Club Archaeology Committee were
on hand to celebrate their first Gold Medal recipient. With professional careers ranging from real estate to music to education, the group is an eclectic mix with a shared passion “to understand the past so as to enhance the present and anticipate the future”. Its members include Committee chair Michele Kidwell, Courtney Brown, Paco Arciz, Rheda Brant, Andrea Bucher-McAdams, Erik Carlson,
Elizabeth Cho, Diane Davis, Joan Giordano, Robert B. Koehl, Kenneth Jay Lindner, Lynn Mayocole, Stephen Pekar,
Lucille A. Roussin, Michael Skakin, Mira Stulman, Dorothy
Wiggins, Guy Wiggins
and Peter A. Young. To the strains of the Triumphal Procession from Aida, guests streamed into the dining
room for the dinner, welcoming speeches and awards.
Michele Kidwell warmly thanked all the guests for their support and introduced the Committee Members many of whom came dressed
as their favorite Archaeologists or figures from ancient history.


Erik Carlson performed a Musical Interlude a la Ray Johnson and Chicago House before the esteemed Dr. Frederick A. Winter,
Senior Director of Advancement and Leadership of American
Colleges and Universities followed by Peter R. Herdrich, Director
of Industry Programs, The Paley Center for Media.


As is tradition, National Arts Club President O. Aldon James made the presentation to Peter A. Young to thunderous applause. Young
noted that despite the falling sales of magazines” Archaeology has over a ¼ million subscribers”. He noted that this was largely due the fact that the magazine “features emotional content rather than academic and
offers readers the surprise and delight of discovery”.


Over the last century, The National Arts Club Gold Medal Awards for Excellence have always recognized significant contributions to the arts from visual arts to music to fashion to architecture and more. The list of honorees reads like a global Who’s Who with such extraordinary talents as Gordon Parks and Alexander Lieberman for photography; Norman Jewison, Arthur Penn and Martin Scorsese for Film; Daniel Libeskind for Architecture; Lorin Maazel, Sir James Galway and John Corgliano for music; Tennessee Williams, Eudora Welty, Isaac Bashevis Singer and Saul Bellow for Literature; Geoffrey Beene, Betsey Johnson, Carolina Herrera, and Oleg Cassini for Fashion and recently a unique award to fashion designer Kenneth Cole to raise HIV AIDS awareness through his advertising campaigns.


Run by volunteers, The National Arts Club was founded by
New York Times
literary and art critic, Charles de Kay in 1898
with the mission to stimulate, foster and promote public interest in
the arts and educate the American people in the fine arts. A
historic staple in Gramercy Park, the Arts Club is located in the
Tilden Mansion which was built in the 1840's. Today, The National
Arts Club hosts art unveilings, award dinners, film screenings,
lectures, dances and many more various types of art performances. In order to help recognize untapped talents, the Arts Club's committees frequently award scholarships to young artists, writers and singers
to help them develop their talent and work towards their dreams.
