On April 24, 2009, celebrated choreographer Bill T. Jones delivered the inaugural Visionaries Series lecture at the New Museum. The Visionaries Series spotlights leading international thinkers in the fields of art, architecture, design, and related disciplines of contemporary culture, whose innovations are shaping intellectual life and shining light on the future. The series is made possible by The Stuart Regen Visionaries Fund, established by a major gift from Barbara Gladstone in honor of her late son Stuart Regen. A reception in the seventh-floor Sky Room followed the talk.
Additional support for the Visionaries Series was provided by the Charlotte and Bill Ford Artist Talks Fund.
