Lunch Break is a series of open, participatory, and short discussions about art. Each Lunch Break is led by Guild Hall’s Patti Kenner Director of Learning + New Works, Anthony Madonna and focuses on various ways to absorb and interpret the work on exhibit.


Participants are welcome to join staff for lunch in the Guild Hall Pantzer Gallery or Minikes Garden after the program. Attendees may bring their own lunch or purchase small bites from Louise & Howie’s Coffee Bar in the lobby.


This Lunch Break will focus on the themes of the current exhibition, Ted Carey: Queer As Folk.

  • Anthony Madonna

    Anthony Madonna is an interdisciplinary collaborative artist, educator, and creative producer, Anthony strives to construct experiences that both critically challenge our individual beliefs and bring awareness to our responsibility as a community. 

    This ambition has led him to work in various roles and contexts: a music-theater workshop leader amongst diverse age groups and learning developments; a music practitioner within hospitals and rehabilitation centers; a concert and festival producer; a composer/performer of experimental vocal works; and a collaborative installation artist. Anthony has worked within institutions such as The McCarter Theatre Center, The Juilliard School, and the Barbican Centre. His projects have been shown and/or performed as part of the Tate Modern: Tate Exchange (London), the Barbican Centre’s Dialogue, UnFinished, and Curious festivals (London), Guild Hall of East Hampton (Long Island, NY), and The Arts Center at Duck Creek (Long Island, NY).

    Anthony currently serves as the Patti Kenner Director of Learning + New Works at Guild Hall of East Hampton. In this role he manages all Guild Hall (GH) initiatives on site, and in schools, the Guild Hall Teen Arts Council (the first paid teen arts program in the region), and Guild Hall’s three residency programs: the Guild Hall William P. Rayner Artist-in-Residence program; Community Artist-in-Residence program; and the Guild Hall & Bel Canto Bootcamp Resident Artist series.

    Anthony is a graduate of the Beth Morrison Projects Producer Academy, the Guildhall School of Music & Drama (M.M. Music Leadership), The Juilliard School’s Professional Apprenticeship Program, and Westminster Choir College (B.M. Music Education & Vocal Performance).
