The National Arts Club, located on the south side of Manhattan’s Gramercy Park, is a hive that hums with culture. You may recognize the building from its appearance in movies—Woody Allen’s Manhattan Murder Mystery and Martin Scorsese’s The Age of Innocence (both released, strangely enough, in 1993). The club is special and its lectures are varied and smart. March has a full schedule of in-person events, and here follow some highlights. On March 4, Eckart Frahm, a professor of Assyriology at Yale, talks with attorney Raymond Dowd about the archaeological looting. On March 23, the color black—its place in fashion and history—is discussed by the historian Carmela Spinelli. And on March 20, the legacy Jewish architects in America is the subject of a lecture by the architect Arthur King. Check out the calendar for more info and offerings. —L.J.
