This June, Assistant Director Kevin Hofmann will represent the James Rose Center at the 6th International Iconic Houses Conference at the Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Since its inception in 2012, The Iconic Houses Network has been a prominent international network connecting publicly accessible, architecturally significant houses and artists’ homes and studios from the 20th century; the platform also focuses on conservation, management, policy and cooperation. Conference attendees network with leading iconic house conservators, tour more than 20 iconic homes, and attend expert sessions including Sustainable Conservation and the Modern House and After 1965: Hope for Modern Heritage Houses?

The James Rose Center will be participating at the 2020 NJASLA annual meeting in two ways: Dean Cardasis will be delivering an expert section entitled James Rose: A Voice Offstage, and the Center will be hosting an information table with some exciting announcements and upcoming programming! For those already registered make sure to visit us; and if you were on the fence, this is one extra reason to attend! Click the link above or register HERE.
The James Rose Center would like to thank all of the musicians from the Ridgewood High School for their performances on May, 29th. For those who missed it, here is a short clip from Bedrich Smentana’s Sting Quartet No. 1 in E Minor, From My Life.
Featuring: Ryan Rhew, violin; Hunter Maskin, violin, Wednesday Hsu, viola; Eugene Park, cello.
Beginning Friday, May 17th, join us every Friday at 12pm for 30 minutes of mindfulness practice. Whether you are entirely new to mindfulness or if you have had a practice for decades, this is a great way to end your week and start your weekend with renewed sense of calm. Most sessions will be led by Ridgewood resident and supporter of the Center, Kevin Rose, but select Fridays will be reserved for independent practice.
We will use the setting of the James Rose Center to focus on different mindfulness techniques for reducing stress, improving attention, and bringing greater compassion to ourselves and those around us.
Nothing is required as chairs will be provided for all, put participants are welcome to bring their own cushions and mats if they prefer.
There is a $5 suggested donation that will go towards the continued renovation of the Center.
