Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney's Studio on Long Island

On August 6, 2019 I had the honor to deliver the John G. Winslow Lecture to the Preservation Society of Newport County in Newport, Rhode Island. The subject was the Long Island Studio of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, my great grandmother. Here is the link: 

Hope you enjoy it!


        I Hereby Order

Arlene Bynon and John LeBoutillier are back from a summer hiatus to discuss the state of the Trump Presidency, the Trump Trade War, and the campaign to defeat Trump in 2020. Why is Trump behaving even more erratically than usual? Why are White House insiders leaking to the media tales of Trump's deteriorating behavior?
What"s going on inside the White House and the Trump Campaign?

Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney:Sculpture

A two-part podcast hosted by noted Canadian broadcaster Arlene Bynon with John LeBoutillier, a great grandson of Gertrude, serving as a tour guide through the exhibition. Currently running at the Newport Art Museum in Newport, Rhode Island. Curated by the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida, this is the first exhibition of Gertrude Whitney's work since her 1942 death. An avant-garde pioneer as a woman artist, Gertrude lived a remarkable life which is reflected through her sculptures.

    The First Crack

Arlene Bynon and John LeBoutillier analyze the effects of the first GOP Member of Congress - Rep. Justin Amash - to advocate the impeachment of Donald Trump. Is Congressman Amash alone in his thinking or is he echoing what he hears in the GOP Cloakroom? Will more GOP Members follow his lead? Is there a sense of exhaustion now creeping into the Trump presidency? Is some of the steam even coming out of his base?


  It's Over

Arlene Bynon and John LeBoutillier examine the current state of the Trump-Russia-Mueller case. Is it indeed "over" as both Trump and Lindsay Graham announced this week? What can the Democrats now do? Is impeachment still an option? Why did Trump call Putin and talk about the Mueller report? Why is Joe Biden suddenly surging inside the Democratic race? Is he the candidate Trump should most fear?


  And The Winner Is?

Arlene Bynon and John LeBoutillier discuss the Mueller Report, its aftermath, and where do we go from here?  Was Mueller, in fact, too deferential to the office of the President - and too fair to Trump? Will Trump now retaliate against the FBI and the "investigators"? Will the Democrats move toward impeachment - or defer to the voters in 2020 to render a judgement of Trump's conduct?
