On this edition of Study with the Best, a LaGuardia Community College professor takes us on a journey through the history of the Steinways and their famous pianos. You’ll learn how a journey to a country suffering the aftermath of civil war led to a design competition for architecture students at New York City College of Technology. And you’ll meet the graduate center alumna whose book was the basis for the award-winning movie about Mexican artist and icon Frida Kahlo.
