Ask The Experts: Dennis Thomas - Live on Zoom

Wednesday, December 8, 2021 - 7:00pm

Dennis Thomas is an artist and designer living in NYC for the past 47 years. He has artwork in the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American art among other collections, blah, blah, blah. But never mind that. Dennis has been swimming with the Coney Island Polar Bear Club since the mid 80s and has been its president for the past 15 years during which time he has plunged into the frigid Atlantic in winter well over 700 times.†

He will be recounting the history of the Club dating back to its inception in 1903, discussing the current state of the Club, what it is like to plunge into freezing waters and, of course, the Club's continuing production of the great New York tradition of the Coney Island Polar Bear Club New Year's Day Plunge.

Ticket sales end on Wednesday, December 8th at 5pm.

A Zoom link to join us online, will be emailed day of the event, between 5pm-6:30pm.
