TIPA Founder and Executive Producer Stanley Eugene Tannen has designed this program as a tribute to two-time TONY Award recipient Frances Sternhagen, winner of the 2013 Obie Lifetime Achievement Award. Ms. Sternhagen, a frequent participant in TIPA Project programs in the past, will join TONY Award winner Fritz Weaver, Law and Order star Rochelle Oliver, and other friends to be announced in presenting readings from prose, poetry and drama in tribute to her long and brilliant career on stage, in film, and on television.
A Tribute to Frances Sternhagen is a gift to the public from the artists and TIPA (Toward International Peace through the Arts), the innovative nonprofit project founded in 1971 by Stanley Eugene Tannen to promote peace and unity through free public performances of the arts and literature. Mr. Tannen runs TIPA as an individual enterprise to demonstrate how each one of us can make a difference in creating a better and more peaceful world.
About The TIPA Project
TIPA programs create an “international conversation” by means of free public readings and performances from great works of world literature, poetry, music, and drama. These programs not only celebrate and honor the literary, artistic, and cultural heritages of the nations of the world; they also encourage an ever-increasing number of people worldwide to integrate literature and the arts into their daily lives, to lift their spirits and to act as a powerful force for peace and reconciliation. The Humanities help to bring out our own humanity and to make us more proactive in working for justice, equality, and world peace. The work of TIPA not only reaches live audiences but can also be widely disseminated through the Internet and other educational methods of global communication. TIPA is an individual educational and philanthropic endeavor, produced, directed, and operated solely by Stanley Eugene Tannen.
This program year marks Stan Tannen’s forty-second year as a peace advocate and activist dedicated to promoting the Humanities – Literature and the Arts – as an instrument for peace. The TIPA Project and its founder Stanley E. Tannen have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The TIPA Project began presenting free programs at New York University in 1971, and adopted its present format of readings by the great stars of Broadway, film, and television in 1982.
