To Do Wednesday: Book of Dummies

boy-dummyFamed celebrity and fashion photographer Matthew Rolston’s new book from Pointed Leaf Press, Talking Heads: The Vent Haven Portraits, is being feted at designer Richard Mishaan’s interiors store, Homer, along with hosts Adam Glassman, Sam Shahid and Suzanne Slesin. The project, more than three years in the making, is a series of 100 portraits or head shots of ventriloquist’s dummies, some dating back to the 1800s, unearthed from the obscure Vent Haven Museum in Fort Mitchell, Ky.—the only establishment dedicated to the history and art of ventriloquism.

Homer, 56 University Place, (212) 744-7705, 7-9:30pm, by invitation only.
