A Fun Announcement for Arts & Entertainment lovers and anyone trying to stretch a budget
The Oscars™ have passed, but SEAT FILLERS are popping up all across the country
PASS IT ON: “Seat Filler” is no longer a term just used
for Award Shows. OTL (on the list) and the entire Seat Filler Network
now make it possible for event lovers in cities across the U.S. (and the
U.K. too) to enjoy Free Shows (Music, Theatre, Comedy & more) as
Seat Fillers for the venue.
MORE ABOUT “SEAT FILLING: Unlike Award Show Seat Fillers, OTL members get to bring guests, sit together and actually enjoy the show.
Award Show Seat Fillers
Attend one or two shows annually
Are invited to attend an average of one show weekly
Seat Fill for someone else so they move around; main objective is to seat fill and not enjoy show
Simply filling the seat (not for another person); no moving around; able to enjoy the show
Sit alone - can't bring guests
Members can bring up to three guests depending upon membership selected and the party sits together
Seat Fill for Award Shows
Seat Fill for Music, Theatre, Comedy & more in their hometown plus can seat fill when traveling to any OTL city
A TRUE WIN-WIN: Members get the benefit of reserving

of a bigger audience, more food & beverage income, and the chance
to introduce some new people to their awesome performances.
SHHH: OTL members and management never publicly share
the names of OTL’s Entertainment Partners to avoid impacting regular
ticket sales. Members are not part of OTL to receive free tickets to
one type of show anyway. They’re on board to be introduced to new shows

Exhibition on Jacob Riis, Pioneering Photographer, Journalist and Social Reformer, Opens April 14
life of Jacob Riis, a late-19th/early-20th century newspaper reporter
and writer, whose stories and photographs of the squalid conditions in
New York City’s tenements led to social reform, will be explored in a
new Library of Congress exhibition.
“Jacob Riis: Revealing ‘How the Other Half Lives’” will open on Thursday, April 14 in
the South Gallery on the second level of the Library’s Thomas Jefferson
Building, 10 First St. S.E., Washington, D.C. The exhibition is free
and open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It closes on Monday, Sept. 5, 2016.
exhibition is a co-presentation of the Library of Congress and the
Museum of the City of New York. It combines items from the Library’s
Jacob A. Riis Papers and the museum’s Jacob A. Riis Collection of
photographs. Currently, the exhibition, under the title “Jacob A. Riis:
Revealing New York’s Other Half,” is on display until March 20 at the
Museum of the City of New York.
is one of the first to use innovations in documentary photography to
great effect. He experimented with new techniques of flash photography
and created rare images of tenement interiors, as well as outdoor
photos of street and city life. He used these pictures as a compelling
complement to his written words. Although he was well aware of the
power of photography, he did not consider himself a photographer.
Library’s exhibition repositions Riis as he saw himself—a highly
skilled communicator who devoted his life to writing articles and books,
delivering lectures nationwide and doggedly advocating for social
change. He brought attention to the crises in housing, education, crime
and poverty that arose at the height of European immigration to New
York City in the late-19th century. His crusading journalism led to
safer water, better housing, the creation of parks in New York City and
display will be correspondence, including three letters from Theodore
Roosevelt and one to Booker T. Washington; photographs; fire insurance
maps that help show the locations of Riis’ photographs; drafts and
published works; lecture notes; reviews of his lectures; family
correspondence and family photographs; appointment books; and journal
entries. The exhibition also will feature a lantern-slide projector and
camera equipment similar to those Riis used—a Blair Hawkeye Detective
camera (7 inches by 17 inches by 13 inches), a glass-plate holder and a
flash pan. An online version of the exhibition will be available on the
opening date at loc.gov/exhibits/.
August Riis was born May 3, 1849 in Ribe, Denmark. The son of a
schoolmaster, he was educated locally, leaving school for work at age
15. He immigrated to the United States in 1870. The New York Tribune
hired him as a police reporter in 1877, and he wrote about crime and
disease, documenting life in the tenements. In 1888, he started working
for the New York Evening Sun and started taking photographs, using a
new German innovation, flash photography. It was a novel idea at the
time to use photographs to substantiate words. The wretched living and
working conditions of New York’s immigrant communities were made vivid
by the harrowing images, which were meant to spur his audiences to act.
His career as a reformer took shape. He worked at the Sun until 1899.
From the 1890s to 1910, he wrote many magazine articles and nine books
and lectured nationwide. He died on May 26, 1914.
exhibition has a companion volume, “Jacob Riis: Revealing New York’s
Other Half,” written by Bonnie Yochelson, who spent more than two
decades researching Riis and assembling materials. The 336-page
hardcover book, published by Yale University Press in association with
the Library of Congress and the Museum of the City of New York, is the
first comprehensive study and complete catalogue of Riis’ images. The
book contains more than 600 images and is available for $65 in the
Library of Congress Shop in the Thomas Jefferson Building. Credit-card
orders are taken at (888) 682-3557 or loc.gov/shop/.
exhibition and its programming at the Library of Congress are made
possible through the generous support from the Library of Congress Third
Century Fund; Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik’s Foundation; the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, Danish Ministry of Culture, and
the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces; the Royal Danish Embassy; and
the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation.
this year, other versions of the exhibition—combining Library of
Congress and Museum of the City of New York resources with additional
Riis-related objects—will be presented in Denmark. The first will be at
the Kunstforeningen GL Strand museum in Copenhagen from Oct. 1, 2016 to
Jan. 8, 2017, and the second at the Ribe Kunstmuseum in Riis’s home
town of Ribe, Denmark, from Jan. 21, 2017 to May 14, 2017.
Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress acquired the Jacob A.
Riis Papers in the early 1950s as a gift of Riis’ second wife and widow,
Mary Phillips Riis (1877-1967), who was a longtime social welfare
advocate and board member of the Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement
in New York. Additions have been made by generations of the Riis
family, including Jacob Riis Owre, Ruth Riis Jones, Oscar T. Owre and
Martha Riis Moore. The Manuscript Division also holds the papers of
Jacob Riis’s son, Roger William Riis (1894-1953), an author and editor.
That collection contains family correspondence and other materials
gifted by Riis family members Jacob Riis Owre and Martha Riis Moore.
Library’s Manuscript Division holds more than 70 million items,
including the papers of 23 U.S. presidents, from George Washington to
Calvin Coolidge. For more information about the collections and
holdings of the Manuscript Division, visit loc.gov/rr/mss/.
Library of Congress, the largest library in the world, holds more than
162 million items in various languages, disciplines and formats. The
Library serves the U.S. Congress and the nation both on-site in its
reading rooms on Capitol Hill and through its website atloc.gov.
