1950s & Nostalgia: In Search of Greatness in the “Golden Age”

August 26, 2017 @ 11:00 pm - 2:00 am

Why do film and television love to paint the 1950’s as the American utopia? What is it about this era that gives instant nostalgia (even for those who weren’t alive during the 50’s)?

The United States experienced the highest standard of living of any nation in the history of human civilization in the 1950s. But the decade wasn’t golden for everyone.

Join us for Think Olio’s Newburgh launch on the evening of August 26th at Atlas Studios! We’ll have a lecture from Professor Lawrence Cappello, live music from Bartise and cold complimentary craft beer from Newburgh Brewing!
