"This will be our biggest trek yet," says metal outfit's singer M. Shadows.. Last month, Avenged Sevenfold wrapped a sold-out tour in support of their latest album, The Stage. The month-long trek found the group playing arenas around the country, but singer M. Shadows tells Rolling Stone that the metal outfit's upcoming summer tour "will be our biggest trek yet. In terms of production and song selection, it feels like the whole cycle has been leading up to this." The tour kicks off July 22nd at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts and wraps September 2nd at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas. Prophets of Rage will join Avenged Sevenfold throughout the trek, while Three Days Grace will serve as support.

Dylan's first experience with music started when he was around the age of 15. He stated that he didn't take it seriously at first, and that he and his friends would make parody songs and put them online as a joke. As he got a little older, he went to college to play basketball initially. However, during his freshman season, he started getting more and more show opportunities for songs that he wrote on his free time, and realized that his passion for music was growing. He took a big leap towards music when he decided to give up basketball, which is something he also loved and worked hard for in the past to focus on his newly formed dream. He explained that this course of action was a huge turning point for him. This was where music evolved from just a hobby to something he wanted to take seriously.

"LAN Party is a comedy show hosted by the creators of Hard Drive, the video game section of The Hard Times! Each month, a guest comedian plays one of their favorite video games in front of a live audience and, along with a panel, rips it apart with jokes. Plus, the whole thing is live-streamed right onto the internet, so you can join in and interact with the show no matter where you live!"

With saxophonist and flutist Bruce Williams, trumpeter Freddie Hendrix, bassist Tom DiCarlo, and drummer Vince Ector. Eminent pianist Stanley Cowell started his jazz career in the 1960s, working with artists like Max Roach Charles Tolliver, Bobby Hutcherson, and Stan Getz. Of that period of jazz—and of Cowell's role in it—the New York Times noted an important balance that has always been a constant in Cowell's art: "music both of reinvention and repertory... original, independent-minded work, comfortable with jazz tradition and common practice but not beholden to it." The same can be said about every member of his A-list quintet. Tonight they'll be looking back at the incredible body of work that Cowell has written and recorded over the past 50 years. It's a combination of enduring originals and well-known tunes, and even the standards are often unique interpretations, broken down and reassembled anew to answer unasked questions like "what if Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie's breakneck bebop burner 'Anthropology' was performed as a loosely timed ballad?" The answers are always worth hearing.

Tate Modern Talk: Charlotte Cotton on Public, Private, Secret - Aperture FoundationJuly 25, 2018 - New York

Join curator Charlotte Cotton at the Tate Modern for a discussion surrounding her latest book, Public, Private, Secret: On Photography and the Configuration of Self (Aperture/the International Center of Photography, 2018). Public, Private, Secret explores the roles that photography and video play in the crafting of identity, and the reconfiguration of social conventions that define our public and private selves. This collection of essays, interviews, and reflections assesses how our image-making and consumption patterns are embedded and implicated in a wider matrix of online behavior and social codes, which in turn give images a life of their own. Within this context, our visual creations and online activities blur and remove conventional separations between public and private (and sometimes secret) expression. The writings address the various disruptions, resistances, and subversions that artists propose to the limited versions of race, gender, sexuality, and autonomy that populate mainstream popular culture. They anticipate a future for our image-world rich with diversity and alterity, one that can be shaped and influenced by the agency of self-representation.

David Wojnarowicz (1954–1992) came to prominence as an artist in New York City in the 1980s. The artist refused a signature style, adopting a wide variety of techniques with an attitude of radical possibility. Beginning in the late 1970s, Wojnarowicz created a body of work that spanned photography, painting, music, film, sculpture, writing, and activism. Queer and HIV-positive, Wojnarowicz was an impassioned advocate for people with AIDS as an inconceivable number of friends, lovers, and strangers—disproportionately gay men—died from government inaction. Wojnarowicz himself died from AIDS-related complications at the age of thirty-seven. Aperture published Brush Fires in the Social Landscape, which began in collaboration with the artist before his death, in 1992. Not a Member? Become one today to receive an exclusive invitation to this event and participate in other educational gatherings year round!

Formed in the mid-90's, the two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning Evanescence has three albums under their belt. The band was integral in establishing a global, critical mass in Rock. The group's 2003 landmark debut album Fallen laid the foundation; spending 43 weeks on the Billboard Top 10, the album sold more than 17 million copies worldwide and was certified 7x platinum in the U.S. Global hit "Bring Me to Life." Released Fall 2017 on BMG, the band worked in the studio with producers Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell. Synthesis featured two new Evanescence songs in addition to fan favorites re-imagined with a live orchestra and Electronica. The group truly delivered a transcendent concert experience. Lindsey Stirling remains fearless enough to always dream big. In the over five years since the release of her 2012 self-titled debut, the Electronic music impresario, violinist, dancer, and artist quietly and humbly became one of the 21st century's most innovative stars by clinging to her groundbreaking vision of cinematic violin-driven Electronic music. Recently, Lindsey released her first ever holiday album titled Warmer in the Winter in October. Featuring classic and original songs, the album went on to become the #1 new Christmas album of 2017, ahead of Pop music heavyweights such as Gwen Stefani and Sia. Both artists' shows will be accompanied by a full orchestra, highlighting both acts musicality and their incredible performance abilities that continue to blow fans away. The orchestrated performances will also perfectly accent the astounding amphitheater venues across the U.S. and Canada that the two will be performing in, making for a magical summer evening. The two artists recently collaborated on the song, "Hi-Lo" from the latest Evanescence album, Synthesis, which features a virtuosic violin solo by Lindsey Stirling.

Explore new rhythms in this special 1-day intensive! This program is open to beginner, intermediate, and advanced musicians. TOPICS: The focus of the class will be learning Afro Cuban Bata drumming, *but would also be beneficial for anyone who has an interest in learning more about this incredible folkloric music or just wants to expand their horizons.* The workshop is open to all regardless of musical experience. Learning the music of the Bata drums offers any musician not only the obvious expansion of their rhythmic vocabulary but also insight into musical structures, phrasing, improvisation and ensemble interaction. The musical expression and flexibility involved in this music is very akin to Jazz and would be invaluable to any Jazz student as it is truly one of the roots of the African influence in our native American music.

Wacky Water Wednesdays - Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & AquariumThrough July 25, 2018 - Cold Spring Harbor

Make no mistake: Johnny Nicholas knows from the blues. His credentials? Impeccable. Conviction? Immeasurable. And chops? If an instrument's got strings, keys, or reeds he can play the hell out of it. He's also a consummate songwriter and a great singer blessed with a warm, toasty growl of a voice that can roll from rumble to croon and back again with seductive ease. Marcia Ball calls Nicholas "an extremely engaging innovative traditionalist" who "writes instant classics and sings them to break your heart and rock your soul." But the key word there is "innovative," because as deep as his roots go — and we're talking about a cat who learned firsthand from the likes of Robert Lockwood Jr., Howlin' Wolf, Big Walter Horton, and Johnny Shines (to name but a few of the legends he studied under early in his five-decade career) — Nicholas does not paint in one color. As befits a soul who's spent a lifetime soaking up the flavor of such vibrant music scenes as Ann Arbor, Chicago, South Louisiana and Texas (which he's called home now for nearly 40 years), his music is full-spectrum Americana — a rich gumbo of not just blues, but cajun, swing, folk, and barrelhouse rock 'n' roll. As an artist and performer he can mesmerize a listening room crowd or bring a festival crowd to their feet with his rollicking boogie woogie piano and his stellar band.

Walter Trout is the beating heart of the modern blues rock scene, respected by the old guard, revered by the young guns, and adored by the fans who shake his hand after the show each night. After five decades in the game, Trout is a talismanic figure and part of the glue that bonds the blues community together, at a time when the wider world has never been so divided. He's also the only artist with the vision, talent and star-studded address book to pull off a project on the scale of We're All In This Together. "It was quite a piece of work to get this record together," he admits. "But I guess I have a lot of friends, y'know...?" Before you even hear a note, We're All In This Together has your attention. Drafting fourteen A-list stars - including Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, John Mayall and Randy Bachman- and writing an original song for each, Trout has made the most tantalizing album of the year, and found solace after a run of solo albums that chronicled his near-fatal liver disease of 2014. "Now was the right time for this record," he says. "Battle Scars [2016] was such an intense piece of work, written with tears coming down my face. I needed a break from that, to do something fun and light-hearted. This album was joyous for me." Scan the credits of We're All In This Together and you'll find nods to every twist and turn ofTrout's electrifying backstory. There's keys man and long time friend Skip Edwards, who came up on the same early-'70s New Jersey circuit where Trout cut his teeth as the precocious lead guitarist for Wilmont Mews. There's organ wizard Deacon Jones, the West Coast bandleader who brought a twenty-something Trout into the orbit of blues titans like John Lee Hooker and Big Mama Thornton. "Deacon sorta discovered me when I moved to LA in the '70s," reflects Trout. "So I owe him."

Join us for a New Perspectives tour that focuses on intimacy in select works by Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, Thomas Bayrle, and John Akomfrah. Together, we will examine how these artists evoke interior life through form, content, and presentation, while answering cultural critic Stuart Hall's prophetic call for us all to "live in a more relativistic way." By comparing Ramírez-Figueroa's immersive installation, Bayrle's analog distortion of images, and Akomfrah's films across multiple screens, we will rigorously contemplate what kinds of proximity and relation contemporary art requires of us. Finally, we will consider our engagements with these works, exploring how the artists stage an encounter between their personal histories and viewers' own stories.

New York-based country songwriter Cliff Westfall writes songs about heartache, loss, addiction… you know, funny songs. Or he can turn on a dime and dive headlong into a sentimental weeper. The Kentucky native delivers with a mixture of wit and bravado that, for Westfall, is central to what country music is all about. On his new album, Baby You Win, to be released July 13, 2018, he's assembled a crew of some of New York's best musicians to explore a new idea of Americana, drawing inspiration from sources often forgotten by the current country scene. "I feel like the humor of people like Roger Miller, Don Gibson, and Del Reeves is neglected nowadays," Westfall says. "A lot of current country music makes you want to ask, 'Hey, does anybody remember laughter?' And you know, it's not really anything against what anyone else is doing, it's just that the ability to laugh at your troubles seems to have gotten lost." The songs on Baby You Win are bitingly acerbic, dependent on the twisty puns, bittersweet humor, and turns of phrase that used to define country music. Westfall's a true son of Kentucky and an honest student of the genre, but refuses to be constrained by its definitions. He cites Chuck Berry as his favorite lyricist, arguing that some of Berry's songs were much closer to their country cousins than lines of race and genre might have suggested. This is Americana outside the box, made by an artist gleefully rifling through the dusty record bins of American roots music and converting them into something new.

In June of 2017 Midnight North released their third studio album: Under the Lights. On this full length record, Midnight North left it all on the court.

Expect flares of country on tracks like "The Highway Song" and "Greene County", tinges of soul on the likes of "Back To California", and all the elements of good solid rock and roll. With strong melodies and stronger harmonies, for this band it comes down to one thing: the song.

Memorial Visions: Fifteen Years After the 9-11 Competition - Center for ArchitectureJuly 25, 2018 - Manhattan

A godfather of global dance music, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip-hop and soul. A godfather of global dance music, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip-hop and soul. What distinguishes the Grammy winner and 4-time nominee as one of the best living house music deejays is his ability to evolve alongside the times, distill the current musical landscape through his unique taste and put his own timeless spin on it. "Little" Louie Vega, as he is sometimes affectionately known, was born in the Bronx into a musically gifted family (his father, a jazz saxophonist, and his uncle, Salsa King Héctor Lavoe). The "Little" moniker is ironic, given the fact that by the 80s he was deejaying at clubs he wasn't even old enough to attend, holding residencies at Studio 54, Devil's Nest, Hearthrob, Roseland, and the Palladium. Soon Vega was producing his own remixes, which included Information Society's "Running", Noel's "Silent Morning" and Debbie Gibson's "Only in my Dreams". Then in 1991 he joined Atlantic Records—and hit the mainstream. Teaming with an-up-and-coming Marc Anthony, he helped to produce "Ride on the Rhythm". An immediate hit, the single put Vega and Anthony on the map. The duo would rock the club circuit, with their success culminating when they opened for Tito Puente at his 100 Album concert at Madison Square Garden.

"Mr. Otero vibrantly summoned tango ancestors while also acknowledging Bartok and Prokofiev. His brilliant playing bore traces of jazz pianists like Bill Evans and Don Pullen. The resulting synthesis proposed bold new directions for a venerable tradition." – The New York Times The innovative Argentinean pianist/composer Fernando Otero will be in residency at Zinc Bar on Thursdays in April, performing with the Brazilian violinist Andrei Matorin and Argentinean percussionist Ramiro Scalzi. Otero, a leading figure of a pan Latin American jazz movement flourishing in New York, has developed a unique and provocative style he calls "X Tango" – a fast-paced and intense music that combines the improvisatory thrill of jazz with a contemporary classical structure. His critically-acclaimed albums "Pagina de Buenos Aires" and the Latin Grammy Award–winning "Vital" have established him as internationally recognized artist. His shows at Zinc will feature new work and compositions from recent albums: "Radio Angel", a sensuous blend of tango and jazz, and "Romance", which was praised as "darkly ravishing" by the New York Times.

His larger-than-life presence on the literary scene lends itself to fascinating, intimate insights into the lives of some of the world's best-loved cultural figures.

Audrey Silver is one of the most elegantly creative singers in jazz today. Known for her smooth, effortless sound, sensitive interpretations, satisfying swing, and unique approach to the American songbook, Audrey sings with a style that radiates her warm, generous personality. Audrey's steady stream of appearances—including performances at the Tanglewood Jazz Festival and New York's prestigious JVC Jazz Festival—have made her more sought after than ever. Based in New York City, she performs at numerous venues including 55 Bar, Cornelia Street Cafe and Jazz at Kitano. In October, 2016 Audrey released her third CD, Very Early. Included in the stellar line-up are two revered jazz musicians, Bruce Barth on piano and Lewis Nash on drums. The album offers a broad array of music from American Songbook standards, originals, to contemporary tunes and a French song all creatively arranged by singer, composer and Berklee professor, Steven Santoro. Audrey received critical praise for her "vocal prowess" in her second album, Dream Awhile, which features many of the players that have worked with her in New York clubs throughout her career, including pianist Joe Barbato, bassist Joe Fitzgerald, guitarist Chris Bergson, and drummers Anthony Pinciotti and Todd Isler. The recording wowed critics, who lauded her thoughtful, charming, and uniquely personal interpretations of 11 lesser- known jazz standards. Audrey is a storyteller at heart, a performer who loves connecting with her audiences. She respects the power of lyrics, but is equally fascinated by how an artist can alter the mood, meaning and impact of a song through its arrangement. Audrey has an insatiable desire to learn, a vast repertoire, years of jazz piano studies, a well-developed ear for scat and improv, and a musically open mind. These elements combine to make Audrey a singer, bandleader and arranger who delights her audiences and fellow musicians. An avid researcher and broad listener, Audrey continuously adds to her distinctive musical vocabulary, and always surprises audiences with her delightfully original versions of jazz standards. Also inspired by the cabaret world, she enjoys sharing anecdotes between songs, offering an unusually friendly, intimate, and enlightening jazz atmosphere. Audrey started studying classical piano and cello as a young child, but deep down she alway wanted to be a singer. Audrey explored her love of jazz and popular song by spending hours absorbing the styles of Fred Astaire (she also studied tap) and singing along with the various Broadway musicals—such as The Pajama Game and Guys and Dolls—that comprised much of her father's record collection. Audrey finally began to explore her vocal skills while studying at Brown University, where she founded the school's first co-ed jazz a cappella group, The Higher Keys, for which she transcribed and arranged for the first time.

Pianist, and Composer Willerm Delisfort is a messenger of life using music as his tool. His career extends the continuum of musical styles that ranges from Jazz, Gospel, R&B and many more.

He has performed over 20 festivals all around the Globe, branching from the west coast of the United States, all the way to Europe, touring Spain, and the United Kingdom. Even in the lights of main stage theater, you can always expect Willerm in the orchestra pit, either conducting or playing the lead piano book. Headlining shows such as Dreamgirls, Ain't Misbehavin, Crowns, Aida, The Best of Broadway, and Don't Bother Me I Cant Cope. Willerm has been featured on over 7 albums on piano, along with several commercial recordings broadcast all over the world. His most recent, the critically acclaimed Flat Planetby Virtuosity Guitarist Fareed Haque which is available on Owl Studio Records. Next expected release will be Willerm's debut album entitled "Freedom Riders" scheduled to be release in September 2009. Born in Little Haiti Miami Florida to Haitian Parents Pierre Franklin and Antonette Delisfort, his father exposed him to different music from a very early age. Teaching him the rich history of his heritage, while his mom taught him the importance of being able to dance and feel the embracement of the music, Willerm's curiosity grew towards a life in the arts, unknowingly embarking on a journey which would lead him to where he is today.

Courtney Barnett performs at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance. Courtney Barnett has been celebrated as one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in indie rock, a singer-writer who mixes deeply insightful observations with devastating self-assessment. Rolling Stone praised her as "one of the sharpest, most original songwriters around—at any level, in any genre… a self-strafing humorist á la Lena Dunham who's also a Dylan-style word ninja." She's a critical darling with an adoring fanbase to match. Julien Baker's solo debut, Sprained Ankle, was one of the most widely acclaimed works of 2015. The album, recorded by an 18-year-old and her friend in only a few days, was a bleak yet hopeful, intimate document of staggering experiences and grace, centered entirely around Baker's voice, guitar, and unblinking honesty. Cameroon-born Laetitia Tamko, better known as Vagabon, is a multi-instrumentalist and producer who moved to New York City with her famliy in her teens.

"Tamko's voice is enormous but delicate, and she belts it with gusto throughout Infinite Worlds, spinning out little effortless arias amid songs Modest Mouse may have written in another life," states Pitchfork. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.

The '90s were the ultimate decade for just about any kind of music you happened to be into. But there's one production style used by songs from Slowdive's "Alison" to Oasis' "Wonderwall" that truly marks the era -- buckets of reverb, Wall of Sound-style guitars and tons of tambourine. Today, that airplane-hangar vibe is your ticket to the beating heart of Brooklyn rockers Mars Motel, but it's not just used as a genre signifier -- it's the sound of your own memories whirring. That buzzing feeling is at the heart of Mars Motel's new single "Living in the Moment," which reaches back to the moment you step back into your childhood home, surveying the changes and coming to grips with who you once were. Singer Sarik Kumar explains in a statement, "It's a song about youth and independence, and the lyrics touch upon the time when one leaves home and goes out into the world. But upon returning, the place you once remembered and loved so much somehow feels different and unfamiliar."

Always free, always all ages + always rain or shine. This week, be awed by site-specific contemporary dance from six renowned companies. Plus, get up-close with a live art experience led by DUMBO-based artist Marney Fuller. ///////////THE BASICS The Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge is a public plaza in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It’s on Water St between Anchorage Place and Adams St. ///////////MORE DETAILS THE DANCERS WHITE WAVE Dance, led by choreographer Young Soon Kim, curates Rising Choreographers NYC performance—an extension of its Wave Rising Series—for a second year at Live at the Archway. Playing off the site specific nature of the space, the evening will feature six innovative and risk-taking dancemakers. Choreographers and companies to be announced. THE ARTIST Marney Fuller lives in Brooklyn, New York, and her studio is in DUMBO. She received a BA from Western Washington University and an MFA from Pratt Institute. Marney’s art is about fleeting habitats and changing boundaries, and conjures up cross-sections of culture, class, and environment with a “tug of war” throughout, creating a sense of longing and of distancing with the paint being the main attraction. Each canvas features built-up tactile layers, marks and drips, breaking apart an image or idea towards abstraction and then reining in the original references. Her outdoor assemblage sculptures are made mostly from noble metals and wires such as steel, copper and brass, and are playful, unexpected and larger than life. THE GALLERY Every week at Live at the Archway, we assemble (tool-free!) Tfnf’s "The Space Station." It is a replica, in flat pack, modular, franchisable form, of the DUMBO gallery This Friday or Next Friday– “likely the tiniest, most inconsequential gallery in NYC, maybe on the face of the Earth” – founded and run by Nathan Sinai Rayman since 2013 as both a gallery and an artwork. We exhibit a new DUMBO-based artist every Thursday, and invite the public to engage through a live art component, where the artist and public create a collaborative piece together over the course of three hours.

Events with some of the best Jazz & blues musician. Don't miss this great opportunity to see some of the best Jazz & Blues Musician.

Daniel Norgren shouldn't need an introduction. But for the uninitiated, before the music speaks louder than these words ever could, here's his story: The Swedish born musician began releasing albums on his own Superpuma Records in 2007, running the imprint with his producer, Pelle Nyhage, and his wife, Petra Wester-Norgren. Daniel's records are supremely unique takes on the American tradition, evoking a rust-worn blues feel that pervades his sound. But Norgren's interests lie in more than music. His enterprise is a fully realized universe: Norgren makes his own videos, filming the world around him to match his aesthetic. In this regard, he reminds one of Sergio Leone, not in his filmic style, but in the way he spins American music unlike anyone born in the USA ever could. Our blind spots are too large, our notions too preconceived. Daniel Norgren illuminates the cracks and details of the Americana lineage we so often overlook. Daniel Norgren is an otherworldly talent with an old soul. He made his name with a strong, slow build, quietly introducing his music to anyone willing to listen.

Sometimes inspiration strikes from the immersion of living in a far away place. The view of the ocean. The sound of a rainforest at sunrise. The smell of an open-air market. The embrace of the wild human experience. However, maybe the nostalgia for a certain place might be attributed instead to a feeling, or a time, or even a person. Sometimes, inspiration stems from a place that everyone can relate to, but maybe no one's actually been. This is the music of The Hip Abduction, the vibrant St. Petersburg, FL-based collective that formed over a mutual appreciation for West African and early Jamaican reggae/dub music. The Hip Abduction (THA) began through informal jam sessions and quickly coalesced into a sound that attracted national attention. For "Gold Under the Glow", the band's third full album released on March 11, 2016, THA engage an indie pop acumen alongside a highly emotive and roots driven sound. Recorded in Nashville, Gold Under the Glow was produced by Dabney Morris (Wild Cub) who is credited with incorporating synth-pop teeth into the band's global foundation and summery vibe. It's a smart blending of world pop and club aesthetics that appeals to both audiences. The Hip Abduction featuring David New (lead vocals, guitar), Chris Powers (bass), Dave Johnson (baritone, tenor sax), Cody Moore (keyboards, sax), Matt Poynter (drums, vocals) and Justino Walker (guitar, vocals, sitar) have shared stages with the likes of Grace Potter, Galactic, The Revivalists, Ziggy Marley, Umphrey's McGee, Thievery Corporation, Matisyahu, 311, Galactic, and Moon Taxi and has performed at Shaky Knees, FloydFest, Wanee Music Festival, Suwannee Hulaween, Deep Roots Mountain Revival, Sunfest, Orange Blossom Jamboree, Tropical Heatwave Music Festival, The BIG What? and more. Watch out for more festival plays in 2018 including Red Rocks Amphitheater, California Roots Festival, Blue Plum Festival, Camp Bisco, Duck Creek Log Jam, Camp Deep End and more as well as coast to coast dates.

The New Division is the alias of Los Angeles based electronic Musician/Producer John Glenn Kunkel. What began as a college bedroom project in Riverside, CA was eventually met with critical success in the winter 2011 debut E.P., "The Rookie." A few months later, the first full-length record entitled "Shadows," was declared "album of the year" by several renowned music tastemakers and garnered the band an international following. "Night Escape," which was released as the second E.P. in 2012, shifted gears with the project's songcraft. Sonically, it featured a more developed and refined dance-oriented sound encompassing lush expansive instrumentation and brighter tonalities. An appearance by the Greek Balearic outfit Keep Shelly in Athens, and the unprecedented success of the second single "Kids" paved a new vantage point for the act.

The Montagues and the Capulets aren't the only ones who can hold their own in combat. After you take our "Fun with a Fight Scene" class, you'll become a regular Musketeer! (If musketeers fought with pool noodles, that is.) At the start of the class, award-winning fight choreographer Joe Isenberg will teach you the basics of (play) hair-pulling, slaps, and punches. Once you master that, you will pick up your sword -- made out of a pool noodle -- and work on a fight routine. Next, you will take your routine to the next level by working with a partner to create a story! (Pirate v. Sailor? Good Knight v. Bad Knight? Jet v. Shark?) If you wish, you can perform your fight scene in front of the rest of the class. Bring a friend for your dueling partner or make a new one at this class. Children ages 12 and up are welcome when accompanied by an adult.

"Reuniting this summer and heading back out on the road with my friends Lady Antebellum feels like a home away from home," said Rucker. "It's going to be an incredible summer, and I can't wait to see y'all out there!"

The New Museum inaugurates an annual convening of activists, artists, and educators to exchange knowledge and methods for generating critical discussion and structural change, while promoting safer and braver spaces. As a non-collecting institution working primarily with living artists, the New Museum is poised to be responsive to ever-present and increasingly urgent priorities of inclusiveness, while taking stock of activities relevant to contemporary art, education, and social change. The Museum has published two historical books on contemporary art and education to generate, assemble, and disseminate work in the form of essays, artist entries, and lesson plans: Contemporary Art and Multicultural Education (1997) and Rethinking Contemporary Art and Multicultural Education (2011). Over the last decade, the Museum has actively created content, tools, and methods for employing contemporary art as a resource for engaging youth and communities in questions and ideas that matter to them. As the Museum considers its next step in making such tools and knowledge further available to educators, the new multi-day Convening for Contemporary Art, Education, and Social Justice invites artists, activists, classroom teachers, and educators in other settings to share best practices.

Architect and historian Mabel O. Wilson joins New Museum artists-in-residence the Black School and Kameelah Janan Rasheed for a panel discussion considering the role of visual culture, art, and architecture in the creation of spaces centering black teachers, learners, and knowledge within conditions of systemic and institutionalized racism. Throughout US history, from slavery to Jim Crow segregation to present-day inequities and marginalization, people of color have created space for learning through diverse strategies that encompass mobile, temporary, domestic, and built forms. What might present and future spaces for education gain from engaging these often-suppressed histories? For the New Museum's annual summer art and social justice residency and exhibition, artists and educators the Black School and Kameelah Janan Rasheed reimagine learning spaces in the Fifth Floor Gallery and Resource Room, respectively, as well as the use of these environments for workshops and classes. They discuss their choices for these spaces and their approaches to teaching and learning, as well as the histories of black education in the US. Mabel O. Wilson will draw from her transdisciplinary design practice and historical research, which investigates space, politics, and cultural memory in black America and respond to the exhibition and residency.

A$AP Ferg may hail from a block in Harlem notoriously known as "Hungry Ham (Hamilton Heights)," but that never completely defined him. Whether it be launching clothing and jewelry lines or attending art school, he constantly bobbed and weaved past expectations. As a rapper, unpredictability remains his only calling card. The next member of the A$AP Mob collective to have a solo project, he can slip from gruff, gritty rhymes to soaring singing, and he does so seamlessly. On his A$AP Worldwide released mixtape, Trap Lord, he's got his own musical domain on lock. "Ferg's debut [mixtape] will not sound like anything that's out in the music industry right now," assures A$AP Worldwide co-owner, A$AP Yams.

Scientific Controversies (Sci Con) is a series of conversations between scientists on unsolved quandaries, hosted by Pioneer Works Director of Sciences Janna Levin. Black holes are gloriously weird. Formed as the death state of heavy stars, they can be as small as cities or as big as solar systems. Our own Milky Way galaxy is anchored at its center by a black hole four million times the mass of our sun but only 20 sun widths across. The rest of our galaxy could harbor billions of city-sized black holes. There are hundreds of billions of galaxies in the observable universe, each one replete with billions of stellar mass black holes and each one probably the home to one supermassive black hole. Beyond the oddity of black holes, they may play an essential role in sculpting galaxies and the universe on the largest scales. Black holes may have carved a world that we could live in. Pioneer Works Director of Sciences, Janna Levin, invites Yale professor and astrophysicist Priyamvada Natarajan and the University of Arizona professor and astrophysicist Feryal Özel to question if our very existence is contingent on the shepherding role of black holes in the history of the cosmos. Join us after the conversation for star gazing with the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York in the garden and DJ Black Helmet’s set of rare grooves in the North Hall. This project is supported by Science Sandbox, a Simons Foundation initiative dedicated to engaging everyone with the process of science.

Community. Magic. Life changing. Church. Home. These are just a sample of words used to describe those who have experienced live performances by The Lesson GK – a NYC-based group comprised of a vocalist, producer/drummer, emcees and instrumentalists. The Lesson GK started a collaborative weekly jam session in 2012 which has become the cornerstone of the NYC underground hip hop scene. The band's secondary name "Gentei Kaijo" (Japanese for "limitation cancellation") perfectly captures the ethos of the fully improvised experimental hip-hop, jazz, R&B, funk and progressive soul experience that proudly challenges both the artists and the crowd to become the best version of themselves by taking notice of their neighbor – regardless of cultural background, race, occupation and orientation – and learning about them in a space that fosters family.

Goolis burst onto the scene in the Spring of 2016 with the breakout video single "Times," followed up weeks later by the complete visual album Goolis Presents Mr. Goolis. Each song was accompanied by whimsical, hallucinogenic, and hilariously crafted videos produced, cut, and directed by Goolis. Still having never performed live, Goolis went back into the studio to create the second 2016 release, Goolis Presents RIDIGOOLIS. Exploring wild new territory both musically and lyrically, Goolis provided an audience with another hit single in "Simple Pleasures," and took the music video personas to the next level with his animated cat in "Curiosity," and the Los Angeles Statue of Liberty in "American You." Surrounding the second LP release, Goolis began playing private, and pop-up shows in New York City, and over the course of 2017 became a hit in the downtown Manhattan music scene. 2017 saw the release of the third album, Goolis In Love, recorded in Ghana and Philadelphia. Goolis spent the spring of 2017 in Accra, Ghana working with the rhythm section The Xtreme Volumes. Goolis? ?In? ?Love? ?is an album in love with being in love. It contains all the sentimentality and universality that one expects from a love song, right alongside the fatalistic political satire subtly embedded in these songs. Entering its world is like falling in love: underlying terror and overwhelming ecstasy.

Singled Out by the New York Times, Acclaimed Show Returns to NY June 8, 9 & 10 as well as July dates In Gender-Bending Role, Lesley Karsten Stars in Production Led by Stephen Wadsworth A more revealing, soul-searching expression of the life of Astor Piazzolla—the father of Nuevo Tango—is at the heart of a revamped production of "That's Not Tango - Astor Piazzolla, A Life In Music," returning for an extended run at New York's SubCulture on June 8, 9 & 10th and for multiple performances in July. The director is Stephen Wadsworth, named one of the most influential stage directors of the 21st century by American Theatre. Conceived by Lesley Karsten and written by Karsten and Wadsworth, the team have re-adapted their 2016 tribute to plumb more intimate details of the musician's life, examining his doubts, struggles and regrets, and how they inspired and sometimes contradicted his celebrated career. The staged production has a unique gender-bending premise – the part of Piazzolla is played by a woman. As Piazzolla, Lesley Karsten delivers a compelling dramatic narrative that offers a deeper understanding of Piazzolla's life, from his rough childhood in New York to the fame he achieved for revolutionizing the traditional tango. The show unfolds through an interplay between storytelling and virtuoso performances of Piazzolla's music by JP Jofre, (bandoneon), Brandt Fredriksen (piano) and Nick Danielson (violin). "We've moved from a more straightforward narrative of the facts of his life into an exploration of the inner workings of the man," says Karsten. "The premise is simple. He's dead, hates it and returns because he has unfinished business ... with himself. He has regrets, struggles with isolation, memories of love lost. He gave what he had to give -- and the music is astonishing – but he needs to set the record straight. There's a price to be paid for immortality." Karsten and Wadsworth take us on an intimate journey into Piazzolla's past, from his childhood in New York, years that shaped the man he would become, to his death at 71 in Buenos Aires. Growing up on the Lower East Side, he was strongly influenced by the music he was surrounded by. Along with exposure to Bach, Stravinsky and Bartok, he heard klezmer from Jewish weddings, jazz from nearby clubs and tango­—an idiom he initially rejected—from the scratchy records his father played. A chance encounter with Artur Rubenstein when Piazzolla was 16 further inspired him to pursue music; he was soon taken under the wings of classical composer Alberto Ginastera and tango great Aníbal Troilo, and later went on to study with the legendary Nadia Boulanger. Through her, the composer found his true calling. From this gumbo of life experiences emerged a music that's intensely personal, yet universal and as beloved in Tokyo, Berlin and New York as it is In Buenos Aires. Since his death in 1992, Piazzolla's reputation has only grown with jazz giants like Gary Burton and Al di Meola and classical superstars like Yo Yo Ma, Emmanuel Ax and Daniel Barenboim including his works in their repertoires. His influence continues to be felt in the works of other significant composers, such as Osvaldo Golijov. As tango reaches new heights in popularity, Astor Piazzolla is taking his rightful place as a towering figure in all 20th-century music. "I hope people develop a personal relationship with the music and understand what it meant to him," Karsten says. "I want audiences to experience the man behind its urgency and power." Karsten's creative journey began when she was asked to read some Latin American poetry while a violinist performed Piazzolla in Fairfield, Connecticut. Rather willfully, Karsten admits, she rejected the poetry and adapted elements of Piazzolla's biography instead. The piece, which was part of a chamber music series, had lines out the door and around the corner. "Lesley's work as Piazzolla moves quickly beyond gender into the androgyny of the soul," says Wadsworth. "A woman in a persona so conventionally masculine, and whose music has a bald assertiveness and violence many associate with maleness, is very tango. Piazzolla was fascinated by the quick-change animus-anima exchanges between men and women dancing tango." JP Jofre is an award-winning bandoneon player and composer considered to be the premiere bandoneónista of the modern age. He has been repeatedly highlighted by the New York Times and praised as one of today's leading artists by Great Performers at Lincoln Center. His music has been recorded by Grammy winner Paquito D' Rivera, choreographed and performed by Herman Cornejo (Principal Dancer of the American Ballet Theatre). Jofre has taken his form of contemporary tango to some of the most important venues around the world, including San Antonio Symphony, San Diego Symphony, and Argentina's National Symphony Orchestra. Award-winning pianist Brent Fredriksen is the Music Director of the show. He is a founding member of New York's Ensemble Respiro. He has held debut recitals at Weill Recital Hall, Gasteig Cultural Center, and Vafopoulio Hall, and has performed with numerous renowned ensembles. In 2003, he was selected by the U.S. and China Foundation to perform recitals and concerts throughout China. He has several recordings, and has also recorded solo piano music for the soundtrack of the award-winning documentary film, Sonia, and chamber music composed by Nickitas Demos for the film A Free Bird. Most recently he recorded piano for New Music from Greek and Greek-American Composers for Albany Records. Among his many collaborations, violinist Nick Danielson has performed and recorded at venues such as Jazz at Lincoln Center with world renowned tango and contemporary Argentinian ensembles and musicians such as Paquito D'Rivera, Pablo Ziegler, and Wynton Marsalis. He has performed on Grammy and Latin Grammy-winning recordings in both genres and has recorded two solo albums. He is the Assistant Concertmaster of the New York City Ballet Orchestra. Stephen Wadsworth is a veteran of Broadway, the West End and opera companies throughout Europe and the US, including the Met. He has directed such wildly diverse playwrights such as: Terrence McNally, Anna Deavere Smith, Beth Henley, Ken Ludwig, and composers Peter Lieberson and Daron Hagen. Working with Leonard Bernstein, he wrote the Grammy-nominated opera A Quiet Place. He was a Playwriting Fellow for Sundance at the Ucross Foundation and the McCarter Theatre, and currently teaches directing at Juilliard. Story and Musical Consultants include: Kip Hanrahan, Piazzolla's longtime associate and the producer of his seminal CDs Tango Zero Hour and La Camorra, and Fernando Gonzalez music critic, writer and translator of Natalio Gorin's "Astor Piazzolla: A Memoir." Dates: June 8 @ 7pm June 9 @ 2pm and 7pm June 10 @ 3pm July 18, July 19, 25, July 26 @7pm Ticket: $35 $15 cash-only rush ticket one hour before the show (current student or educator ID required).

When the judge gave me the verdict: 'Ms. Gentili, I am going to allow you to stay in the US under a full asylum,' I couldn't wait to go back to Argentina! Returning would be awesome, weird, sad and fun! And it would reveal how a 'New York downtown transsexual sweetheart' was made from an ugly Argentinean Litoral birthplace. And the sex was part of the whole development, sweet and dirty and full of merits.

Once honked, the performers must create a scene that makes perfect sense given where they are in the story but makes no sense being in the story of Jaws. Love the movie? We got you covered. Never seen it? We got you covered. You think you saw it once and you kind of remember it? You're probably in the show. Performers: Ben Furnas, Tom Costello, Willy Appelman, Pete McElligott, Scott Thomas, Andy Schneeflock, Molly Gaebe, Ryan Chittaphong, and Claire Gresham.

The Felice Brothers' album, Life in the Dark, out on Yep Roc, is classic American music. At once plainspoken and deeply literate, the band's latest features nine new songs that capture the hopes and fears, the yearning and resignation, of a rootless, restless nation at a time of change. Life in the Dark also coincides with The Felice Brothers' 10th anniversary as a band. Hailed by the AV Club for a sound at once "timeless, yet tossed-off," they've released plenty of music over the past decade, often on their own without a record label, but the new album is the fullest realization yet of the band's DIY tendencies. Self-produced by the musicians and engineered by James Felice (who also contributed accordion, keyboards and vocals), the Felice Brothers made Life in the Dark themselves in a garage on a farm in upstate New York, observed only by audience of poultry. "The recording is definitely rough around the edges and cheap," James Felice says, laughing. "It was liberating and really cool to do. It allowed us to untether ourselves from anything and just make music." Because of makeshift studio set-up, the music they made was necessarily stripped down, emphasizing acoustic instruments and spacious arrangements on songs that showcase the sound of a band playing together live, with echoes in the music of Woody Guthrie, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine and rural blues. "We tried to make it as simple and folk-based as possible, because we were working with limited resources," singer and guitarist Ian Felice says. "We wanted to take all the frills out and make it just meat and potatoes." Still, there are hints of seasoning: among the folk and blues touchstones, the band took a certain inspiration from Neil Young and the Meat Puppets, too. Ian Felice says he was trying to channel the spirit of Meat Puppets II on opener "Aerosol Ball" — "They played kind of weird, freaky folk music, so there's a connection there," he says — while James Felice says listening to Neil Young's Tonight's the Night was like getting permission to make Life in the Dark.

Runnin' on Empty is a monthly stand-up show with nothing to lose! The show features a mix of pros and up-and-comers, from people who last performed on Conan to people who last performed to three tumbleweeds. To be fair, those tumbleweeds hadn't laughed that hard in years. Join us at the show critics are calling "Best comedy in the city, I am so proud" (Lisa's Mom) and "My baby is going to Hollywood!" (Yotam's Mom). Hosts/soul-siblings Yotam Tubul and Lisa Franklin first met in a college stand-up group, where Yotam told Lisa "I think your joke is more cute than funny," and she replied "You're probably right." Since then, they've been thick as thieves.

Sexmob (Steven Bernstein – slide trumpet, Briggan Krauss – saxophones, Tony Scherr – bass, Kenny Wollesen – drums) continues to deconstruct familiar pop tunes with subversive impunity. Everything from Prince's "Sign O' the Times" to John Barry's "Goldfinger", the Grateful Dead's "Ripple", Nirvana's "About a Girl", the Rolling Stones' "Ruby Tuesday", Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth", Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die" and ABBA's "Fernando" is fair game for this band of musical renegades. And Bernstein is explicit about Sexmob not being a cover band. "Covers to me means you play it exactly like the record," he explains. "I just take songs that I feel have a great melody and do them in my style. So I'll pick a tune and tell the guys, 'Let's Sexmob this!' And I realize that's what jazz musicians have always done. That's how Lester Young and Charlie Parker and Miles Davis got popular. They played the songs that everyone knew. And because they could recognize the song then that invited them into their style."

Rooted in Colombia and based in New York, Combo Chimbita lives in the future. After playing together for years, these first-generation New Yorkers—powerhouse vocalist Carolina Oliveros, synth player and bassist Prince of Queens, guitarist Nin?o Lento, and drummer Dilemastronauta—began experimenting with di erent traditional musical styles during their late-night residencies at Barbe?s in Brooklyn. Exploring the connections between visual identity and improvisational long-form trips, Combo Chimbita came together as a four-piece band after Oliveros stepped forward to tighten the rhythm with her guacharaca, the traditional Colombian percussion instrument. Although the band members' backgrounds are in heavy rock, metal, and psychedelic funk and soul, they gleefully fuse elements from cumbia, 1970s funana? from Cape Verde, and kompa from Haiti, as well as salsa, reggae, and futuristic-yet-retro synth sounds.

Veteran New York pianist Michael Weiss has worked with the greatest names in jazz: Johnny Griffin, Art Farmer, Frank Wess, Jimmy Heath, Lou Donaldson, George Coleman, and the list goes on. The New York Times calls Weiss "a confident and sparkling presence" exhibiting "sensitivity and logic, along with crisp control." Born in Dallas, Michael began piano studies at age six. Beyond his classical training, Weiss developed a quick ear picking out pop songs on the keyboard. At fifteen, he discovered the world of jazz at the Interlochen academy in Michigan. There Weiss studied arranging and subsequently penned several big band scores while in high school. He continued his studies at Indiana University while gaining invaluable bandstand experience with Indianapolis jazz veterans, Al Kiger and Pookie Johnson. After earning a bachelors degree, Weiss moved to New York and soon landed his first "name" gig with Jon Hendricks.

At age 14 Tim Hegarty was asked to sit in with jazz legends Art Farmer, Clark Terry, and Jon Faddis which changed his life forever. Frank Foster became his saxophone teacher. After soloing with the Guggenhiem Concert Orchestra at Lincoln Center in 1984, Tim was given the opportunity to study clarinet with Ben Armato of the Metorpolitan Opera. He also began to study harmony and piano with Harold Danko and James Williams. It was 1985 when Tim got to meet the great Gil Evans and first got to play with the band. In 1986 Tim attended the University of Miami where he studied woodwinds, composition, and arranging. He returned to New York City in 1989 to attend the Manhattan School of Music and the New School. There, he was the recipient of the "Zoot Sims Award" which allowed him to perform several concerts in Spain with his quartet that included pianist Brad Mehldau. Tim received his MA from Queens College under the guidance of Jimmy Heath and Donald Byrd where he studied saxophone, composition, and arranging. It was at this time that Tim became a member of the Gil Evans Orchestra performing Monday nights at Sweet Basil and began regular gigs with the Mingus Big Band. He was fortunate enough during this period to tour the U.S. with several different groups and was asked to perform in Japan for the first time after doing a CD with guitarist Mike Stern and drummer Akira Tana. He also recorded CDs with Lonnie Plaxico and began performing regularly with Ben E. King, Tom "Bones" Malone, and Pete Levin. He recorded his first CD as a leader in 1992 that included musicians Gil Goldstein, Mark Egan and Kenwood Dennard. In 2011 Tim orchestrated and arranged several big band charts for Ben E.

Steven Spielberg filters J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan through a distinctly 1990s sensibility in Hook. Peter Pan has become Peter Banning (Robin Williams), a 40-year-old mergers and acquisitions lawyer with a permanent scowl on his face and a cellular phone in his belt. Banning has lost any memory of being Peter Pan, and he is also in danger of losing his wife Moira (Caroline Goodall) and two children, Jack (Charlie Korsmo) and Maggie (Amber Scott). Peter and his family travel to London to visit Granny Wendy (Maggie Smith) who recalls Peter’s lost youth and asks him, “Peter, dear, don’t you know who you are?” With Peter’s children asleep in the same bedroom where the original Peter Pan story began, there is a blinding flash. Peter comes into the room to discover a note from Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman), informing Peter that he has kidnapped his children. Granny Wendy now tells him who he really is and encourages him to re-discover his happy thoughts, transform himself into the Peter Pan of the past, and go rescue his children. With the encouragement of Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts), Peter recalls the birth of his son and once again takes wing. Then it’s off to Never Land to rescue his kids.

The Figure and Unknown Places Self taught painter Yu He's acrylic still lifes and landscapes capture everyday scenes with an expressive palette and painterly brushwork. Born in China and living in the United States, the artist's abstracted compositions offer a playful take on traditional subject matter. She tilts the perspective, eliminates detail, and blurs background and foreground in her works, creating a whimsical effect that challenges the connotations of still life painting. The artist's Still Life No. 579 and Still Life No. 577 depict a typical tablescape with loose, quick brushstrokes, the cool, blue palette lending a sense of calm to the images. Meanwhile, Still Life No. 498, Still Life No. 502, and Still Life No. 575 each image a combination of fruits, flowers, and tableware portrayed with thickly painted turquoise, auburn, and yellow strokes. Horizon lines and fine details are excluded from these works, allowing teacups, blooms, and vases to float in imaginative, richly pigmented environments. Finally, Seaside. Evening No. 372 captures a peachy pink and aqua sunset, the brilliant twilight sky mirrored in the calm waters.

Marking his third solo album, singer-song-writer Glen Hansard will release Between Two Shores on January 19, 2018 via Anti-. Following up 2015's GRAMMY nominated Didn't He Ramble, and his 2012 solo debut Rhythm and Repose, the ten-track collection was produced by Hansard himself for the first time. The culmination of more than six years of writing and recording, Between Two Shores came together in only a matter of weeks. This past March, Hansard booked himself time at Black Box Studios in France with the original idea of taking inventory of his songbook. Working again with former Frames bandmate and producer David Odlum, Hansard was in search of a direction for his next record. As he trove through his previous sessions, various ideas and home recordings, a sketch of an unplanned record began to take shape. The aptly titled "Setting Forth" became the catalyst for the direction Hansard hoped to achieve with Between Two Shores. Recorded with drummer extraordinaire Brian Blade and members of his Fellowship Band the song tackles themes of self-doubt in a time when it's impossible not to be riddled with uncertainty. The album's lead track "Time Will be the Healer" is a hopeful plea to a forlorn lover that also speaks to the way for-ward in the current social climate. Indeed, it would be impossible not to in some way address the politics of the day, which Hansard does in "Wheels on Fire" and its refrain of "We will overcome!" Listen to "Time Will Be The Healer" here.

Mike Yung is a 58-year-old singer from Brownsville, New York, a neighborhood in Brooklyn. As a teenager, he was discovered and signed as an artist to RCA and CBS and eventually landed at T-Electric, the same label as Etta James and Luther Vandross. Yung was gearing up to be a household name when the label suddenly went bankrupt; his debut album was never released. After being forced to find a way to make a living to support his family, he took his talent underground and began busking in the subway. For the past 37 years, Yung's voice has been reverberating throughout the walls of the NYC subway system. In 2016, Yung was put back in the public eye after a video of him singing his version of the Righteous Brothers classic "Unchained Melodies" in the NYC subway went viral, accumulating over 500 million total views. He has performed on the Late Late Show with James Corden and was a semifinalist on Season 12 of Americas Got Talent. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, he has begun working on his debut album, "Never Give Up", something he has been waiting his whole life for. The album's first single, "Alright," was released last month and is currently available on all music platforms. Mike has appeared on the Late Show with James Corden, Americas Got Talent (Semifinalist) and has been featured on notable news outlets such as Fader, Vibe, Billboard, and The Guardian among many others.

His compositions are vibrant, a fusion of tasteful form, lyric and improvisation he has coined "Prog Pop". Live, he performs on multiple instruments with an impressive array of professional musicians, nailing tight arrangements of his work, taking musical risks during solos, and keeping the energy bar high. Cole Lumpkin recently singed a management deal with SVN23. His debut single Insatiable (feat. Will Ross), followed by Furious & How , sets the tone for his debut EP scheduled for release late 2018. "It seems like the term multi-talented was invented for this composer, singer and songwriter from New York... a furiously fast and exceedingly infectious auditory marvel" - Roger Jansen, Music Critic

The paintings and photographs on view employ abstraction, realism, and illustration to convey perspectives on the human condition and the world we inhabit. The complexity of the relationship between man and nature is also explored in works that image the engrained connections between human and animal. Providing insight on the binary of nature and culture, the artists in The Figure and Unknown Places dismantle presumed categories and imagine new worlds. The Figure and Unknown Places opens July 7th with an opening reception Thursday, July 12th 6-8 PM and will remain on view until July 27th, 2018.

The Brazilian-born, Manhattan-based singer, actor, and model Carlos Dias has led a remarkably eclectic international career. He has appeared in many of Brazil's highest- rated novelas (soap operas) and musical productions imported from Broadway; sung pop-jazz at top New York venues; worked as an acrobatic dancer; and recorded several CDs of dance music and American standards. Born in Sa?o Paulo, Carlos graduated in 1998 from Teatro Escola (Theater School) Macunai?ma, a center for artistic experimentation and freedom of expression. In his hometown he attended Escola Wolf Maya, another respected acting school; studied film acting at Studio Fa?tima Toledo; and joined the theater company Teatro Amador Produc?o?es Arti?sticas (TAPA). He also studied American and flamenco tap- dancing and capoeira. All the while he maintained a thriving career as a model, which made him a familiar face throughout Brazil and Australia. But music is his greatest joy. Inspired by his grandfather, Clemente Capella— first violinist in the orchestra of Sa?o Paulo's Teatro Municipal for 45 years—Carlos devoted much of his time to the study of piano and voice. He went on to costar as a singing actor in the Brazilian versions of Grease, Beauty and the Beast, and Chicago. For almost six years he sang backup for Brazil's popular dance-music countertenor Edson Cordeiro. Carlos released several dance-music CDs of his own, including Recall (featuring his band of the same name) and This Is the Time (produced by dance/ electronic artist Franco Junior).

The Wildfire Band is the loving "refiring" of the beloved BlueFire Band. The BlueFire Band, with core members Randi Fishenfeld, Richard Velasquez, Nick Cucunato, and Michael Waxman (joined 2007) had been performing and wowing audiences throughout South Florida for 18 years. Jeffrey Lafferty, drummer, joined the band as a permanent member in 2013. BlueFire garnered a huge loyal and adoring fan base due to the amazing chemistry and musicianship of its members. The band was built on love and respect. As the saying goes, "Nothing lasts forever." Lives change – circumstances change. Nick reached a time in his life where he felt he wanted to retire and Rich accepted a wonderful job-offer in Boston. We accept these changes with open hearts and wish everyone (including those of us remaining) success. There are no bad feelings, only love. HENCE, the "refiring"! Jeffrey, Michael and Randi have decided to run with the opportunity to create a new and exciting project called THE WILDFIRE BAND. We added two amazing musicians: Stevan Carter (guitar/vocals), and John Falcone (bass/vocals). These beautiful musicians were selected because of their passion and talent. We fit like a glove!

The story of the Black Lips began in Dunwoody, Georgia, a quiet, conservative suburb of Atlanta, in the year 1999. Born of a mutual love of Link Wray, The Stooges, and The Ramones, and sealed through a shared dedication to defiance, the band formed after childhood friends Jared Swilley and Cole Alexander were kicked out of Dunwoody High for separate, yet equally bad, behavior. The former classmates took their love of music and restless energy and channeled it into their newly found free time, and joined by friends Ben Eberbaugh and Joe Bradley, the Black Lips started playing shows around Atlanta, at house parties and bars. They spent this time honing their sound – garage rock infused with blues, psychedelia, and punk, plus a healthy dose of reckless abandon – and released their first 7-inch, "Ain't Coming Back," in 2002 on Die Slaughterhouse records (named in homage to the flophouse den they called home). Shortly before the band was set to head out on their first ever national tour, Eberbaugh was tragically killed by a drunk driver. Devastated but determined to carry on in Eberbaugh's honor, the Black Lips hit the road as a trio just a few days later. It's been 15 years, but that passionate dedication to touring has never left the band. The Black Lips have released eight full-length albums since that first tour, and have traveled the country and the world extensively, making a name for themselves as an electrifying, must-see live act. It helps that the same mischievous spirit that helped speed up their exit from the educational system is still very much alive, thriving in its new environment on stage, resplendent with punk rock theatrics and miscellaneous bodily fluids, amongst other things. The band's energy and unique "flower punk" sound helped them build a rabid fan base, and after releasing their first two albums through Bomp!, they put out the critically celebrated Let It Bloom on In The Red records. This record garnered the Black Lips features in Spin and Rolling Stone, and they were soon signed to Vice Records, subsequently releasing Los Valientos Del Mundo Nuevo, an ambitious album recorded live at a bar in Tijuana, Mexico, in February of 2007. In their decade-long tenure with Vice, the Black Lips have evolved from wildly crooning over fuzzy, raucous music at house shows full of kids to wildly crooning over fuzzy, raucous music at international festivals in front of thousands of fans. They have toured consistently, with their zeal for travel taking them all over the world, and not without some international adventure: In 2009 the Black Lips went on their first (and last) tour of India, playing shows in Bangalore and Mumbai before chaos struck in Chennai after the band ditched their toned-down presence in favor of classic Black Lips capers, including some not so well received Lips-locking. After the same sex smooching and also Alexander baring his butt to the rowdy crowd, the tour's sponsors pulled out and the band was nearly jailed, their passports confiscated by the disgruntled promoters. According to Swilley: "The first few shows, we were being really reserved because we didn't want to offend anyone, but they kept telling us to do what we wanted...I guess "do whatever you want" didn't include kissing each other, and I think Cole mooned the crowd, which is a huge no-no. We had to physically wrestle our passports back from the promoters. It was the scariest 15 hours of my life, but we got out of there." The band ended up taking a 200 mile cab ride to the next province and hopped a flight to Berlin, narrowly escaping Indian prison. Undeterred, the band jumped at the chance to become the first Western punk band to tour another notoriously conservative continent, the Middle East, just a few years later. Why? "It was important for a number of reasons," Swilley says of the tour. "We've always wanted to push boundaries of where we go. Plus, a lot of people told us we couldn't do it, and anytime someone tells us we can't do something, then we kind of have to. We have O.D.D, oppositional defiance disorder." This time, their shows went off without a hitch, and Black Lips played shows for crowds in Jordan, Cyprus, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraqi Kurdistan, and the United Arab Emirates in 2011 in support of that year's release of their record Arabia Mountain, produced by Mark Ronson. The title was actually a reference to a mountain in Georgia, but that didn't stop the Lips from playing the record all over the Middle East, to enthused fans and without causing any further international incidents. "Everyone was really nervous about us going there, but it really went off without a hitch," adds Swilley. The band also hasn't abandoned plans to become the first rock band to play on all seven continents, hoping to hit their last remaining one, Antarctica in the near future, and disregarding Metallica's claim of this achievement: "Just when we were securing the funding, Metallica sniped us. They took a boat, probably a gold plated Versace boat, down there. But they actually didn't play on land, and they didn't play with amps, so technically they haven't played Antarctica. Metallica hasn't beat us yet." For their ninth studio album, the Black Lips have teamed up with Sean Lennon, who got on board to produce Satan's graffiti or god's art? in 2016. The Black Lips had formerly worked with Lennon on Arabia Mountain, where Lennon played theramin on several tracks. The band moved up to Lennon's studio compound on a remote farm in upstate New York, and spent several months living and breathing the new record. This removal from the outside world, plus the return of beloved early guitarist Jack Hines and the exciting addition of new members Oakley Munson on drums and Zumi Rosow (the first female Black Lip) on saxophone, infused the project with a focused, intoxicating liveliness, similar to the spirit that had brought the Black Lips to life in the first place, way back in 1999. Only this time, the band is drawing from nearly two decades of experience and musicianship, and the newness is tethered by familiarity: Munson is a longtime friend of the band, and Rosow has been playing live with the Black Lips for several years now. There's even a dash of kismet: unbeknownst to the band, after being off the grid for some time, Munson had just recently moved to a cabin a short distance away from Lennon's compound, and the first time his phone ever rang after he plugged into the wall, Alexander was on the other end, asking him to play. All of this excitement and immersion created the perfect storm for the Black Lips' most musically evolved album to date. "It was a really beautiful experience. We were very far from civilization, and we were all living at the studio. We weren't going home to our own beds every night; that was our whole world, 100% of the time," says Swilley of the experience. "Making this record was the most wonderful few months of my life. It was by far my favorite time recording an album so far...It was just magic." The Black Lips were joined by Saul Adamczewski of Fat White Family, who helped co-produce the record with Lennon, plus another rather magical guest: Yoko Ono. "She's very cosmic," Swilley says of the celebrated artist and musician, who makes an appearance on a few of the tracks. The final product is urgent and thoughtful, reflecting the growth the Black Lips have experienced since bursting onto the scene (once or twice quite literally on fire), but it's also true to their original blistering, careening take on rock n' roll: fuzzy, dirty, and rife with three and four part harmonies. Satan's graffiti or god's art? proves that while they may have grown up a bit and changed a few things around, the Black Lips are still as creatively unhinged and exhilarating as ever. Satan's graffiti or god's art? is out now on Vice Records.

Little Lesley & The Bloodshots - Hill Country Barbecue Market - Hill Country LiveJuly 27, 2018 - New York

Little Lesley & the Bloodshots are an original Rockabilly trio from New York. Called "a welcome shot in the arm for the rockin' faithful" by UK's Vintage Rock Magazine, they've been taking the scene by storm with their fiery twang and high energy live show. Lesley Swift fronts the band, belting out her songs and slapping the upright bass like someone who was meant to. Her passionate performances, complete with jaw-dropping bass moves, have lit up stages around the world, including the Nashville Boogie, Viva Las Vegas, Summer Jamboree (IT) and the Hotrod Hayride (UK). She's joined on guitar by ex-cowboy and punk-rock-n-roll veteran Brian "Swifty" Swift. They met in Nevada where Swifty's wild guitar style turned Lesley onto Rockabilly, and they ventured to NYC together where they found native Staten Islander Bobby Lee. Bobby's big-band influenced drumming hopped up their guitar driven twangy sound. With two independently released albums under their belt, Little Lesley & The Bloodshots were signed by the legendary Western Star Records of the United Kingdom in 2016. Their "Doin' Fine" EP recorded and produced by Alan Wilson has created quite a buzz and is in regular rotation on BBC radio.

3D printing is an amazing part of the toolkit for glassworking today, and there's a lot to learn. This class will focus on using experimental methods to form hot glass with 3D prints. As the use of this tool develops in the glass world, it is important to discuss the 'why' of this technology as much as the 'how'. This course will include technical demonstrations in 3D technologies and glass processes, as well as slideshows, discussions and readings that can help inform your use of this technology. For those of you who know glass and are new to 3D print, you can expect a similar learning curve to glassblowing. Glitches will occur, but they are as frustrating as they are full of potential so the best approach to this class is to be curious. Often our processes will fail or produce unexpected results. 'Glitchcraft' is meant to embrace these accidents and look for inspiration in them. Please approach this course as research and development for the curious maker.

"Cage acts as if he has been taking hits off of Dennis Hopper's gas mask. There's no way to overstate it: This is scorched-earth acting — the most flagrant scenery chewing I've ever seen." Washington Post The life of white-collar New Yorker Peter (Nicolas Cage) seems to revolve solely around making as much money and sleeping with as many women as possible. After a typical night of scouring trendy bars for some action, Peter manages to take home the sexy Rachel (Jennifer Beals), who bites him on the neck while they're in bed. The next day, Peter is certain he is now a vampire. Though no one shares his point of view and he hasn't changed physically, he dons fake fangs and begins stalking women. Dir. Robert Bierman. 103 min. 1988.

Today, the words "blues" and "shouting" are, alas, inextricably linked, but what about the tradition of mellow blues crooners that extended through Charles Brown, Nat King Cole and, in their more romantic moments, Joe Williams and Ray Charles? "Buster Poindexter" (nee David Johansen) first attracted attention as a glam rock pioneer (in the New York Dolls, with whom he still tours) and then as an early MTV idol (with "Hot Hot Hot"). Yet with his big, deep, resonant voice, Buster Poindexter is most impressive as a crooner and occasional belter of ballads in the classic R&B tradition. His ongoing run affirms the point that however you know him, the artist known as Buster Poindexter, complete with his one-liners and longer comic monologues (not to mention his signature pompadour), is one of the most endearing and enduring entertainers currently trodding the boards in New York.

Carlos Dias salutes Nat King Cole & Frank Sinatra with a Brazilian touch on new CD, "Copacabana Station" In 2014, the Brazilian singer, actor, dancer, and model Carlos Dias, who had costarred in the country's hit productions of Chicago, Grease, and Beauty and the Beast and acted in several smash novelas (Brazilian soap operas), took the biggest gamble of his career: He left his hometown of São Paulo to move to Manhattan and sing. "New York was the dream of my life," he says. "My favorite music when I grew up was more American than Brazilian: rock and roll, jazz, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, all the great names." Luck as well as talent were with him: Soon he began a two-year residency at B.B. King's Blues Club & Grill, one of the city's most prestigious venues.

Jeremiah Moss: Vanishing New York paperback w/ Jason Diamond - Books Are MagicJuly 27, 2018 - Brooklyn

Vanishing New York is an unflinching portrait of gentrification in the twenty-first century, and a love letter to lost New York, by the creator of the popular and incendiary blog Vanishing New York. New York City has long been a destination for rebels and rule breakers, artists, writers, and other hopefuls longing to be part of its rich cultural exchange and unique social fabric. But today, modern gentrification is transforming the city from an exceptional, iconoclastic metropolis into a suburbanized luxury zone with a price tag only the top 1 percent can afford. Blogger and cultural commentator Jeremiah Moss has spent the past painstakingly documenting this sea change. In Vanishing New York, he reports on the city's development in the twenty-first century, a period of "hyper-gentrification" that has resulted in the shocking transformation of beloved neighborhoods and the loss of treasured unofficial landmarks. Moss leads us on a colorful guided tour of the most changed parts of town-from the Lower East Side and Chelsea to Harlem and Williamsburg - lovingly eulogizing iconic institutions as they're replaced with soulless upscale boutiques, luxury condo towers, and suburban chains.

Williams was born in in Rochester, New York and grew up in Washington, DC. He continued his music education at the University of Miami. There he joined Monty Alexander's band, with whom he started to perform on the international scene. He furthered his music education in New York, with Billy Hart. Back in Washington, Williams played locally with Milt Jackson, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Williams, Woodie Shaw, Gary Bartz, Eddie Henderson, John Hicks, Larry Willis, Mulgrew Miller and many others. He joined Gary Thomas' band, with whom he recorded one of his first compositions, "Pads". Then he joined Shirley Horn, who would keep for twenty-five years the same rhythm section: Charles Ables (bass) and Steve Williams (drums). Critic Don Heckman wrote in the Los Angeles Times (February 2, 1995) about "the importance of bassist Charles Ables and drummer Steve Williams to the Horn's sound. Working with boundless subtlety, following her every spontaneous twist and turn, they were the ideal accompanists for a performer who clearly will tolerate nothing less than perfection". His music relationship with the pianist and singer gives him the opportunity to tour the world and record with such artists as Toots Thielemans, Branford Marsalis and Wynton Marsalis, Carmen McRae, Roy Hargrove and Miles Davis.

One of the Latest sounds emerging from New Orleans' Drum Legacy is Joe Dyson. He has been seen with an A list of Brilliant Artist, including Nicholas Payton, Donald Harrison, and Dr Lonnie Smith. Dyson can also be seen forging a new path for music with Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah's "Stretch Music" creating a new approach to drumming with his "Pan African Kit." He has appeared on over 22 recordings, including recent releases EVOLUTION by Dr. Lonnie Smith, (Blue Note Universal Records), Sullivan Fortner's ARIA (Impulse Universal Records) and Christian aTunde Adjuah's STRETCH MUSIC (Ropeadope Records). Elder Drummers are calling him "The One," the one that will carry the legacy forward.

Hailed by the New York Times as "a tenor saxophonist with an enigmatic, elegant and hard-driving style," J.D. Allen is one of the most thoughtful jazz saxophonists on the scene today. The Detroit natives apprenticeship has largely been in New York, where he has performed, recorded, and toured with legends Lester Bowie, George Cables, Betty Carter,Louis Hayes , Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette, Frank Foster Big Band, Winard Harper, Butch Morris, David Murray, Wallace Roney, and contemporaries Cindy Blackman, Orrin Evans, Marcus Gilmore, Russell Gunn, and Me'shell N'degeocello, Dave Douglas among others. J.D.'s debut album, In Search Of... (red records), won him the Best New Artist award in Italy in 1999, and had reviewers praising him for his original compositions and bold playing. That same year J.D. began touring and recording with drummer Cindy Blackman's Quartet, where he remains a member. His second release, Pharoah's Children (Criss Cross), won him accolades for its thoughtfulness, maturity, and adventurousness. One of Jazziz Magazine's Critics Pics Top 10 Albums of the Year, the album was praised in the U.S. and Europe, along with leading musicians, such as Michael Brecker and Jeff "Tain" Watts. Since making a strong impression in his early years in New York at venues like Smalls, Village Gate, and Visiones, and serving an invaluable tenure with Betty Carter, J.D. has come a long way, now fully possessed of his own sound. J.D. has appeared on NPR's Jazz Perspectives, WNYC's Soundcheck, WKCR's Musician's Show and is a member of the Romare Bearden Homecoming Jazz All-Star Band. J.D. Allen performs regularly with his own trio.

At age 81, Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city's halcyon days of electric blues. Buddy Guy has received 7 GRAMMY Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 37 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time." Buddy Guy released his latest studio album Born To Play Guitar on July 31, 2015 via Silvertone/RCA Records, which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top Blues Albums chart. The follow-up to his 2013 first-ever double disc release, Rhythm & Blues, which also debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top Blues Albums chart, Born To Play Guitar was produced by GRAMMY Award winning producer/songwriter and Buddy's longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge. The release features guest appearances by Van Morrison, Joss Stone, Kim Wilson and Billy Gibbons. Though Buddy Guy will forever be associated with Chicago, his story actually begins in Louisiana. One of five children, he was born in 1936 to a sharecropper's family and raised on a plantation near the small town of Lettsworth, located some 140 miles northwest of New Orleans. Buddy was just seven years old when he fashioned his first makeshift "guitar"—a two-string contraption attached to a piece of wood and secured with his mother's hairpins.

Join United By Blue and Riverside Park Conservancy for a cleanup of the Hudson River at Riverside Park this summer! Riverside Park is a historical natural gem along the Manhattan coast. Aside from being an escape into nature from the city, the park supports one of the oldest cultivated collections of American Elms, a thriving bird sanctuary, and a number of migratory woodland species. These species, as well as park users, depend on the health of the park and the Hudson River to maintain this natural haven. However, due to heavy park traffic and the flow of the river, litter and trash can present a problem to the park and river as a habitat and outdoor recreation space. Help us protect the park and riverbanks by joining us at this cleanup! United By Blue will provide all cleanup supplies, snacks, and water. Join us for cleanup games, prize giveaways, and a day of enjoying and caring for Riverside Park!

Daniel Simonsen is a Norwegian comic and the 2012 Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award winner for Best Newcomer.[1] Simonsen began performing in 2004 in his native country of Norway and moved to London to progress his career in comedy. He has performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe since 2009 but 2012 was undoubtedly his most successful year to date.

Simonsen has won and been nominated for awards both in Norway and the UK including Chortle Best Newcomer, Best Comedian at Comedy Fight Club and the So You Think You're Funny competition.[5] Since 2014, he has had a recurring role in Vic and Bob's BBC sitcom House of Fools as Erik.

Originally from Australia, frontman Zebedee Row (guitar/vocals) grew up amongst a family of musicians. Though he was never formally trained, he has been plucking away at this and that since the rise of his first Mohawk (age 8). And yes, he's still a rebel today. Eventually, New York stole Zebedee from his homeland. He was hastily scooped up by the indie/diy scene, which adored his foreign accent, his dashing looks, and his propensity to spark a bone. After an extended tenure in bands rooted in Blues and Classic Rock during which he polished his chops and oriented himself in the local club circuit, Zebedee has now taken up a more diverse sound, something more rugged and perhaps more dissonant. Today, he is joined by Victor De La Garza (drums) and Michael Benham (bass), two jazz-trained musicians from Mexico and New Hampshire, Vancouver born Kelsey Van Mook (guitar) and local sideshow Sam Braverman (synth). Eventually, New York stole Zebedee from his homeland. He was hastily scooped up by the indie/diy scene, which adored his foreign accent, his dashing looks, and his propensity to spark a bone. After an extended tenure in bands rooted in Blues and Classic Rock during which he polished his chops and oriented himself in the local club circuit, Zebedee has now taken up a more diverse sound, something more rugged and perhaps more dissonant. Today, he is joined by Victor de la Garza (drums) and Rafael Durand (synths/piano), two jazz trained musicians from Mexico City, Cat Power's Nico Turner (guitar) and Kelsey Van Mook (bass). On first listen, it's apparent that Zebedee has tapped into a world-weary side of himself: while his past material has a lighter playfulness to it, here we find Zebedee delving into darker sensibilities. Track 1 "Fright" has him nearly crying into the mic mid-song, and in track 2 "Spades" we find him grappling with issues of suicide and drug-addiction. These matters are not taken lightly and elicit first-hand experience; the listening experience is emotionally taxing. We also find Zebedee experimenting with both droning and fairy-footed synthesizers as well as crunchy, heavy guitars. The combination makes for a refreshing reevaluation of early 90s alternative rock colliding with contemporary dance music. It may get you weeping and grooving all at once. What's more, "Fun and Games" offers a 60s R&B ballad with phantasmal backing vocals and subdued horns. Zebedee is, as he always has been, a storyteller. His songs contain strange characters and are characters themselves ("Working Girl" in particular), each one of them individuals that exude their very own beauty and foibles. And Zebedee's voice is perhaps the most motley character of them all: he is constantly taking it to unforeseen places and having fun doing so (think Screamin' Jay Hopkins). And like his voice, his song craft cares not for conventions: it is wonderfully slapshod, it thrives on contradiction, it melds the classic with the strange and does so naturally. This is a superb effort from a fresh new voice meant for a new generation of listeners.

Mike Yung is a 58-year-old singer from Brownsville, New York, a neighborhood in Brooklyn. As a teenager, he was discovered and signed as an artist to RCA and CBS and eventually landed at T-Electric, the same label as Etta James and Luther Vandross. Yung was gearing up to be a household name when the label suddenly went bankrupt; his debut album was never released. After being forced to find a way to make a living to support his family, he took his talent underground and began busking in the subway. For the past 37 years, Yung's voice has been reverberating throughout the walls of the NYC subway system. In 2016, Yung was put back in the public eye after a video of him singing his version of the Righteous Brothers classic "Unchained Melodies" in the NYC subway went viral, accumulating over 500 million total views. He has performed on the Late Late Show with James Corden and was a semifinalist on Season 12 of Americas Got Talent. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, he has begun working on his debut album, "Never Give Up", something he has been waiting his whole life for. The album's first single, "Alright," was released last month and is currently available on all music platforms. Mike has appeared on the Late Show with James Corden, Americas Got Talent (Semifinalist) and has been featured on notable news outlets such as Fader, Vibe, Billboard, and The Guardian among many others.

KILLCODE is a five piece American based rock band that hails from New York City. Their unique sound and style has been described as Southern infused Rock/ Metal. KILLCODE's songs are hooky super charged anthems with big guitars and driving rhythms that pumps a shot of adrenaline into your system the moment you hear them. KILLCODE, founded by vocalist/frontman Tom Morrissey and guitarist Chas, laid down the KILLCODE foundation with a couple of tracks they recorded at their home studio. After listening back, they knew they were on to something! Next up would be recruiting long time musical companion Erric Bonesmith on bass guitar and Rob Noxious on the drums to complete their rhythm section. With all members coming from established projects prior to KILLCODE, the band quickly raised eyebrows and landed on bills with the likes of Godsmack & Sevendust. KILLCODE also provided main support to Brett Scallions on the Re Fueled East Coast tour. To date, the band has released 'To Die For', a six song EP, a second six song EP, 'Taking it All', the self-titled album 'KILLCODE' and their current release 'The Answer'. Both EP's charted well nationally and gained the band critical acclaim worldwide. The album 'KILLCODE' charted in the #2 position for a week on BILLBOARD's Mid-Atlantic Heat seekers Chart and 'The Answer' is again gaining the band critical acclaim worldwide. The song "Breaking Away," off of 'Taking It All', was featured in the inspirational documentary, 'DRESSED', directed by David Swajeski and starring fashion designer Nari Manivong and "6am Again", which appears on both their debut EP, "To Die For" and the self-titled full length album, has been featured on The Howard Stern Show on Sirius/XM. KILLCODE then decided to add a second guitarist by welcoming DC Gonzalez. DC, known as lead guitarist for the rock band Panzie, has proven to more than just fit in, his style complements what KILLCODE already had going on and it reinvigorated the band as they headed into the studio with producer Joey Zampella (best known as guitarist for legendary bands Life of Agony, Carnivore, and Stereomud) to record "The Answer", KILLCODE's latest and current release. KILLCODE has enjoyed an ever growing fan base both nationally and internationally and have headlined and sold out prominent marquee venues including New York City's Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theater, Bowery Ballroom as well as successful support gigs at Roseland Ballroom and Sony PlayStation Theater. Their Tristate area success was complimented by successful shows at the Dunkin Donuts Arena in New Hampshire, Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts and The Viper Room in Los Angeles. In 2016 KILLCODE partnered with Coallier Entertainment to help extend their reach internationally by bringing the band out to perform at prestigious festivals around the world such as Guitare En Scene in France, Bang Your Head Festival in Germany, Hell & Heaven Festival in Mexico and more. 2017 saw the band once again touring around the world, returning to Mexico for the Corona Northside festival, Germany for the Bang Your Head and Rock of Ages festivals as well as spreading the :::CODE::: to new countries such as Switzerland for The Riverside Auarburg Festival, Spain for Rockfest Barcelona, The U.K. for The Hair Metal Heaven and Hard Rock hell Festivals, several club dates in Puerto Rico and direct support for Dee Snider and his Solo band for their USA/East coast dates. KILLCODE aren't showing any signs of slowing down and are ready and able to take their rightful place alongside the biggest rock acts out there. This is only the beginning....

It wouldn't be wrong to say that Shannon and the Clams was formed by accident. Just outside the invisible borders of Oakland's warehouse music scene, Shannon Shaw was absorbed in studying illustration at California College of the Arts, a 100-year-old institution that draws freaks into the city from across the country. For many, the school serves as a gateway into the sprawling music underground that agitates beneath the Bay Area, as a hub for fliers for illegal parties in backyards, basements, and overpasses. During a bout of depression, Shannon took up a neglected bass guitar that had been a gift from an ex-boyfriend years earlier and played it for the first time, writing in a raw and untrained way. The urge to perform these songs soon took her to open mic nights around the East Bay. "It was the perfect outlet," Shannon says. "I never thought I'd be someone who played music, but one day I picked up this bass and started writing songs. I became addicted to it. It became my focus." Word got around that she was performing and the instigators of art school parties, always hungry for new talent, convinced Shannon to throw a band together and play. It worked, and it pushed her to aim higher, but the band was only meant to be temporary. Now, ten years later, her path has revealed itself and Shannon and the Clams are releasing their fifth album, Onion, this time collaborating with producer Dan Auerbach and his label Easy Eye Sound.

Cowboy Junkies released The Wilderness, Volume 4 of The Nomad Series on March 27, 2012, marking the conclusion of an ambitious schedule of four releases over an 18-month period. The group's Michael Timmins says of the new CD, "The title, The Wilderness, in some odd way seemed to define what these songs were actually "about": fragility, emptiness, loneliness, beauty, chance, loss, desperation – the delicate balancing act that makes up a life. They are about being lost in the wilderness of age, the wilderness of parenthood, in the wilderness of just trying to find meaning and substance, happiness and truth in ones day to day life. They are about standing alone in middle of it all, breathing in the cold still air and wondering." The preceding album, Sing In My Meadow, a collection of songs recorded over a four day period that evokes the psychedelic, blues-inspired forays the band is fond of exploring on stage was hailed by Metromix as "showing yet another side of one of the most versatile, underrated bands of the last 25 years." The first volume of the series, Renmin Park, released in 2010, was inspired by Michael Timmins' two-month stay in China with his family in '08 and was called "their most ambitious yet" by The Boston Herald. Demons (2011), the second in the series, is a collection of songs by the late Vic Chesnutt which Canada's National Post called "… a celebration of both the Junkies and Chesnutt and one of the year's best albums."

Punch Brothers are the acoustic quintet of mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher. Says the Washington Post, "With enthusiasm and experimentation, Punch Brothers take bluegrass to its next evolutionary stage, drawing equal inspiration from the brain and the heart." Their latest album, the T Bone Burnett-produced The Phosphorescent Blues (released in 2015 on Nonesuch Records), addresses the power and the pitfalls of our super-connected world with straight-up poignancy and subversive humor. Punch Brothers formed in 2006. Its first Nonesuch record, Punch, was released in 2008 and combined elements of the band's many musical interests. In 2009, they began a residency at NYC's intimate club, The Living Room, trying out new songs and ultimately spawning the Grammy-nominated Antifogmatic (2010). In 2012, the band released Who's Feeling Young Now?, which Q praised for its 'astonishing, envelope-pushing vision', while Rolling Stone said, 'The acoustic framework dazzles – wild virtuosity used for more than just virtuosity.' Recently, Chris Thile took over hosting duties of Live from Here (formerly A Prairie Home Companion) in 2016 and released Thanks for Listening in late 2017 – a collection of songs written for Chris' popular radio show. Chris Eldridge partnered with Julian Lage for the Grammy-nominated Mount Royal and Noam released his fourth solo album, the Grammy-nominated Universal Favorite. Both Mount Royal and Universal Favorite were produced by Gabe Witcher, who was also behind Sara Watkins' latest, Young In All The Wrong Ways. Paul Kowert has been recording and touring with the Dave Rawlings Machine while developing his latest project Hawktail, Paul's band with Jordan Tice, Brittney Haas and Dominick Leslie.

Beginning in Austin, TX, in the heart of their middle school days, David Kapsner (lead vocals/guitar/piano), Michael Jekot (lead guitar/vocals), and Tyler Rush (bass/vocals) came together to transcend the barrier of blues-rock into funky psych-soul through their various music ventures. Bringing the audacious and wonderfully talented Tim Durand (drums/vocals) into the picture has recently solidified the band with a roaring sound and strength to complement their vibe. Dedication to their music has evolved The Mammoths from garage rock to sophisticated blues-funk, and constant experimentation has allowed each member of the group to always stay true to their roots. Jekot, self-described as playing in the "grunge-endrix" style, notes that Kapsner's soul-vocals, Durand's pure metal, and Tyler's deep, groovy funk stand out in the realm of rock, drawing influence from all over to create a sound that is entirely new, yet curiously familiar.

No Small Children- Teachers by Day, Rockin Chicks by Night - The Cutting RoomJuly 28, 2018 - New York

No Small Children is an all-girl band, or as they call themselves, a band. They were born on the playground in the spring of 2012. Elementary school-teachers by day, guitarist and singer Lisa Pimentel and drummer Nicola Berlinsky decided to start the band while covering recess duty. Three months later they had an EP, countless shows behind them and an east coast tour booked. By October 2013, bass player and singer Joanie Pimentel had moved to Los Angeles to join the group. With all three teaching at the same school, lunch breaks became band meetings, after-school times became rehearsals and holidays were reserved for touring.

It is a musical culture and community that is cool, in a hot kind of way.

With warm, soulful vocals and an innate blues sensibility, Polly Gibbons has been likened to many of the jazz and soul greats, but with her own fun, unique style of storytelling. This summer, Polly opened for jazz great George Benson and the "Empress of Soul" Gladys Knight on their sold out UK tours. London Jazz News said of Polly's show at Royal Albert Hall in June that "listening to her open up with soul and passion is a joyous experience." British London-based vocalist Polly Gibbons is one of the most respected and talked about young singer/songwriters of her generation. Being nominated for the prestigious BBC Jazz Award back in 2006 with no album release to her name, was a clear indication of just how special a singer and performer Polly is. Much esteemed by her contemporaries, Polly has built a reputation as an original and gifted voice. With warm, rich, soulful vocals and an innate blues sensibility, Polly has been likened to many of the jazz and soul greats bringing her own storytelling and earnest depth alongside unique humor and fun to performances. Polly's influences are brilliant, broad and inspired - from the poetry of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, to the be-bop of Charlie Parker, the deep wails of Mahalia Jackson's gospel, to the emotional depth of Donny Hathaway, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone; the soul of Marvin Gaye, and the blues of Buddy Guy. Polly is celebrating her new Resonance Records release "Many Faces of Love", a presentation of songs which describe the eternal aspects of Love: Searching for, Finding, Losing, Trying to Reconnect, and finally, the Lessons Learned from the Search.

Shakespeare in the Parking Lot Presents "Hamlet" - The Clemente Parking LotThrough July 28, 2018 - New York

Shakespeare in the Parking Lot, a popular New York summer institution, is now in its 24th year. Its concept--presenting Shakespeare plays with a "poor theater" aesthetic in a working parking lot--is now widely imitated around the US and around the world, with productions as far away as New Zealand. To the company's knowledge and research, it will be the first major New York outdoor stage company to offer a production with a female Hamlet. Unlike the well-known cross-gender castings of the masterpiece (from Sarah Siddons to Sarah Bernhardt to Maxine Peake), this one is not a woman playing a man: the title character is a feminine Princess of Denmark, whose tragedy is meant to explore when happens when you inject female power into a chaotic and confused world. Performances: July 19 at 6:30 July 20 at 6:30 July 21 at 6:30 July 26 at 6:30 July 27 at 6:30 July 28 at 6:30

Stomp is a joyful, witty and wordless show that has been seen all over the world. An eight-member cast with energy to burn creates beautiful music and sly humor with found objects: Zippo lighters, push brooms, wooden poles, hammer handles, garbage cans, inner tubes, matchboxes—and yes, even the kitchen sink. There's no traditional narrative; both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in this unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

This is the story of how Peter Pan became the boy we know and love. Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love. A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

Fernando Carpaneda "New Portraits" is a series of paintings and drawings depicting the beauty and the sensuality of men and women. The work seeks to provoke debates and questions about equality, in the sense of valuing the human being. Leaving inhibition aside, in scenes that depict sex, gender and relationships, the artist's "in your face" approach is meant to inspire the observer to accept diversity in human sexuality. Carpaneda takes inspiration from the urban element, and uses the language of the street along with his own experiences. Beggars, pop stars, sex workers, punks and outcasts of all kinds are the object of his attention and look. He uses DNA- be it his own hair or that of his models- and blends it with more traditional art materials to create his paintings and sculptures. In the past, Carpaneda has focused his artistic gaze exclusively on the male subject. But for this show, he has created paintings and drawings of females for the very first time. Fernando Carpaneda was one of the first Brazilian artists to exhibit homoerotic works in Brazil, and is well known in the gay arts and erotic arts world. He has been showing in international galleries since 1982, in places such as Art Basel in Miami, The Tom of Finland Foundation in California, The Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis and The Leslie Lohman Museum in New York, where he had a solo show in 2011. Carpaneda's art has been featured in books such as The Best of Punk Globe Magazine and Treasures Of Gay Art. In June 2012, some of his works were exhibited on 23 foot LED screens as part of “Art Takes Times Square” and were seen by over 1 million people. Carpaneda was also named as a Juror's Choice for Visual Art at the 2016 Seattle Erotic Art Festival. In 2015, Carpaneda created his own publication, “Carpazine”, to expose Underground music, performance and visual art. The bi-monthly magazine has featured a number of well-known and emerging artists such as Ginger Coyote, Drew Maillard, Frank Russo, Scooter LaForge, Gazelle, Leigh DeVries, Spike Polite and Manoush. The “Fernando Carpaneda: New Portraits” Opening Party, on Saturday June 23rd, (7-10pm) will also be the release party for Carpazine #15 which features Reverend Yolanda, a trans femme gender queer singer songwriter and Interfaith Minister of Music. Reverend Yolanda will be performing a few songs and signing magazines at the opening. Admission is free and open to all ages. MF Gallery is proud to be an Official NYC Pride Partner for this event. MF Gallery is located at 213 Bond Street, between Baltic and Butler Streets in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. Take the F or G to Bergen St., the A or C to Hoyt/ Schermerhorn, or the R to Union. After opening night, the show will be open by appointment until July 29th. The artwork can also be viewed and purchased online at: www.MFgallery.net Email info@MFgallery.net or call (917)446-8681 to schedule a visit or for any other inquiries.

Following the release in 2016 of their highly acclaimed album Come Together - Barb Jungr and John McDaniel Perform The Beatles, the ferociously talented, award-winning duo bring a new show, 1968 - Let The Sun Shine In, to Joe's Pub in New York City for four performances, July 21st, 22nd, 28th and 29th at 7pm. With their potent musical synergy, Jungr and McDaniel reinvent some of the most iconic anthems of the pivotal year of 1968, when the Viet Nam War and its protestors clashed and raged, and the U.S. saw the assassinations of both Robert F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King. The groundbreaking musical, HAIR, from which the title of the show was coined, debuted at The Public Theater, home of Joe's Pub, in 1968. The repertoire of 1968 - Let The Sun Shine In reflects the tenor of the times with titles including Born to be Wild, Do you Know the Way to San Jose?, Revolution and Everlasting Love. In a widely admired career that has defied categorization, musician, writer, composer, lyricist, Barb Jungr, has been critically lauded for her insightful and passionate interpretive style, described as "revelatory" by the New York Times. In recent years, Jungr has brought her singular talents to the songbooks of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Jacques Brel, Nina Simone, Elvis Presley and more, creating the genre of the New American Songbook. In her 45 year recording career along with many collaborations, she has released 18 solo albums, many for Linn Records, receiving outstanding reviews worldwide and winning many awards. Jungr and McDaniel's collaboration has now produced two recordings. In 2011, Jungr received the New York Nightlife Award for Outstanding Cabaret Vocalist, the Backstage Bistro Award for Best International Artist, and Time Out New York's #1 Top Live Cabaret Act for 2011. John McDaniel is a Grammy Award winning Broadway conductor, arranger and producer who has lent his talents to 10 Broadway shows, including Chicago, Greaseand Taboo.

His work for television has garnered two Emmy Awards.

Roundabout reunites writer Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews, Significant Other) and director Daniel Aukin (Bad Jews) for Skintight, a scorching examination of beauty, youth and sex. Reeling from her ex-husband's engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Idina Menzel) turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who's 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi's son. Who's also 20. And definitely gay. Skintight assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what's on the inside. Joshua Harmon's Skintight will begin performances on May 31, 2018 and open officially on June 21, 2018. This is a limited engagement Off-Broadway. A Roundabout commission. Skintight is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award. Joshua Harmon's Skintight was developed at Roundabout with support from the Laurents/Hatcher Foundation. Roundabout's work with new and emerging playwrights and directors, as well as development of new work, is made possible by Katheryn Patterson and Tom Kempner.

History has produced its share of great artists and great people—John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie was both. As a performer, he left behind an incredible record of innovation and inspiration. As a composer, a broad repository of musical masterpieces, and as a man, a legion of friends, colleagues and compatriots who remember him with the same degree of love and esteem they reserve for his work. Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band History has produced its share of great artists and great people—John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie was both. As a performer, he left behind an incredible record of innovation and inspiration. As a composer, a broad repository of musical masterpieces, and as a man, a legion of friends, colleagues and compatriots who remember him with the same degree of love and esteem they reserve for his work. For Dizzy Gillespie, playing in a small combo was never enough. His artistry compelled him to seek and to create larger ensembles because as a composer and arranger, a big band was the ultimate vehicle for self-expression. Given that the majority of his career took place after 1950 when the big band era was over, it's especially notable that Dizzy Gillespie continued to create brilliant music using the grand-scale formats of jazz big band and orchestra right up to the end of his life in 1993. The Dizzy Gillespie™ Big Band and Alumni All-Star group (small group) is the direct descendant of these ventures, and happily, the tradition lives on, nurtured by Gillespie alumni and executive director, producer, and bassist John Lee. The Big Band and the Alumni All-Stars feature some of Dizzy's closest compatriots: senior statesmen and NEA Jazz Master Jimmy Heath and veteran Gillespie alumni Roy Hargrove, Roberta Gambarini, Cyrus Chestnut, Steve Davis, Lewis Nash, and musical director John Lee. All of them are band leaders, educators, and recording artists in their own right.

This wise-cracking Brooklyn clown is proud to cross the Brooklyn Bridge and bring his show to Manhattan. He’ll make jokes, clown around, and do some magic.

A leading figure in the art world for four decades, Terry Winters became well known in the 1980s for his materially-conscious drawings and paintings. Representing the patterns and schema that undergird physical and intellectual life—French philosopher Gilles Deleuze is cited as an important reference—Winters's drawings of grids, networks, and knots illustrate complex encounters between biological drives, technological systems, and mental processes. The Drawing Center's Main Gallery will present an overview of Winters's drawings from 1980 to the present including full cycles of drawings, such as File Drawings (2009), as well as a selection of large-scale works on paper that foreground the overarching theme of Winters's practice: the desire to make sense, however fictively, of the manner in which the visible world is constructed and received. Rather than offering a comprehensive drawing retrospective, the show will be organized with an eye to morphological relationships so that, as viewers move through the gallery, they will recall and ideally return to earlier related images.

Praised for their meticulously-detailed panoramic landscapes, Anglo-French artists Alpha and Chris Mason, known collectively as Hipkiss, have been collaborating for three decades on intricate drawings that interweave dystopian narratives with a personal lexicon of symbolic forms. Past works by Hipkiss chronicle fictional histories of warring clans, urban crusades, and quasi-apocalyptical societies. For Bulwark, the artists' first solo museum show in New York, Hipkiss will present the most recent cycle of drawings in their series The Towers (2015–ongoing). The drawings pull from the myriad allegorical significance of towers as symbols for transcendence, irrational ambition, and piety.

Harken back to a time before we were all filled with existential dread, and see a new musical comedy that is all about fun, silliness, and laughter. Remember laughter? It’s like a backwards hiccup. In ‘God Save Queen Pam’, the entire royal house of Edevane has died out, and the only living heir is an American bartender from New Jersey. With the help of her devoted staff, Pam Duffy has to figure out her new God-ordained career before the snobby jerks of court unseat her and ruin everything. Hilarity ensues, and nothing else. No, really- we promise: no moments of sad reflection, no ironic nods to the woes of the day, and your cellphone will be off, so no NYT notifications about who tweeted what this time. God Save Queen Pam is running Off-Broadway at the Players Theater from June 21st-July 29th. Performances are at 7pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and 3pm on Sundays. More information can be found at www.godsavequeenpam.com.

Come From Away is based on the true story of when the isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small town turned in to an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander's air strip on September 11, 2001. Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we're all part of a global family.

In the quest to describe the music of Fred Hersch in a word — a preposterous task, but not a pointless one — you could do a lot worse than "refinement." Mr. Hersch is a pianist of cultivated taste and erudition; he's also the sort of jazz musician who brings a lissome elegance to his playing, disinclined to accentuate the effort behind it all. But there's another definition of refinement that has to do with painstaking progress, the incremental stretch toward an elusive ideal.

Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons—the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group—with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public.

For more than a decade, Living History tours have delighted visitors to the elegant 24-room, Spanish-Revival waterfront mansion, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Stories told on the tours are based on the oral histories of people who worked for the Vanderbilts as teenagers and young adults. Some stories originated in Mr. Vanderbilt’s books of his world travels and extensive sea journeys. This summer of 1936 was eventful. “The movie Captains Courageous with Spencer Tracy is playing in the theaters, and Agatha Christie’s new novel, Dumb Witness, is in the bookstores,” said Stephanie Gress, director of curatorial affairs. “Legendary aviator Amelia Earhart is lost at sea in July, and European leaders are faced with threats of German expansion. The U.S. Post Office has just issued a commemorative stamp in honor of the women’s voting rights activist and social reformer Susan B. Anthony on the 30th anniversary of her death in 1906.” Earlier in 1936, New York City Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia – who supported women’s voting rights – had been the keynote speaker at a dinner at the city’s Biltmore Hotel to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Women’s City Club in New York. The Living History presentation is set against this background of national and international news.  LaGuardia is invited to Eagle’s Nest to join a few of the Vanderbilt family members – including William K. Vanderbilt’s brother, Harold; his sister, Consuelo, the Duchess of Marlborough; and her guests Elizabeth Arden, Anne Morgan, and her nephew, Henry Sturgis Morgan, Gress said. Mr. Vanderbilt’s sister, Consuelo, and her guests reminisce about their younger days at Suffragette rallies. Beginning Memorial Day weekend, the Museum will display items in two guest rooms that commemorate the centennial of women’s right to vote in New York State. Included will be an enlargement of the Susan B. Anthony stamp, suffrage banners and sashes, and an authentic outfit worn in that era by Consuelo, the Duchess of Marlborough. (Mr. Vanderbilt’s mother, Alva, also had been active in the movement.) The Living History cast: Ellen Mason will play Elizabeth Arden, who created the American beauty industry. Yachtsman Harold Vanderbilt – William’s brother, three-time winner of the America’s Cup, and expert on contract bridge – will be portrayed by Jim Ryan and Gerard Crosson. Peter Reganato will be Pietro, the Italian chef. Dale Spencer will perform as William Belanske, the curator and artist who traveled with Mr. Vanderbilt on his epic journeys. Anne Morgan will be played by Judy Pfeffer and Beverly Pokorny. The Vanderbilt has been called a “museum of a museum” – the mansion, natural-history and marine collections galleries are preserved exactly as they were when the Vanderbilts lived on the estate.

Nightclub star Velma's serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie's been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she's been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma's incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie's got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…

Judha Su is an art critic and writer, working on shifting boundaries of contemporary arts, diverse forms of artistic practices, and politics of knowledge. She perceives art as a point of contact, negotiation, and entry to imagine beyond a conditioned reality. Her current project revolves around reclaiming thinking subjectivities, a transmission of bodily and nonverbal knowledge, and a re-distribution of sensory experiences. From 2015–16, she received a research fellowship from the Japan Foundation Asia Center to conduct fieldwork about practices of art writing in Indonesia, Philippines, and Japan. Last year, she initiated a collaborative project titled "To Whom It May Concern"; started as a laboratory exhibition at Bangkok CityCity Gallery, the project has now developed into a Thai-English online platform for collective learning. Judha is also a laborer of "soi" – a space for dialogue, research, and pedagogy. Judha is in residence at Art in General from April to July 2018 through the support of the Asian Cultural Council.

The LIC One Act Festival 2018 is a self-producing competition style one-act play festival. The plays are divided into up to six different programs. The Audience will vote for best plays. Those scores will be averaged to insure that everyone has a fair chance regardless of audience size. The top six to ten nominated plays will compete for the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Play. Best Actor wins $50, Actress $50, Director $50 and Best Play $100. As well, those plays in the Finals will be offered a chance to be non-exclusively published in The Secret Theatre's Anthology of Short Plays. We also intend to invite the finalists to have their play published in a short play anthology. This would be a non-exclusive deal, which doesn't prevent the author from pursuing a deal with Samuel French for example and is not mandatory. We will be using the theatre's standard lighting plot and will provide you with a light and soundboard operator. In addition we will offer free 4-hour rehearsal space to each show from July 2nd - 8th, which is subject to availability and on a first come first served. Each play is responsible for providing their Director and Actors for their production. Break a leg! Equity Showcases permitted but acts will obtain their own code; The Secret Theatre will provide Equity compliant Insurance to the productions.

The result is Compass Song, a free app-based public sound artwork inspired by Times Square’s rich history as the Crossroads of the World that officially launches Wednesday, July 12th. Compass Song was commissioned by and created in residence with Times Square Arts. As you turn on the app, plug in your headphones and walk through Times Square, a voice will accompany your wanderings with poems about searching for freedom, reflections on navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions, woven through with quotes from and reworkings of Walk With Me, the African-American spiritual turned Civil Rights freedom song. The voice in Compass Song is always underscored by a drone, a unique harmony that translates the latitude and longitude data for Times Square into sound and modulates as you walk north, south, east, or west. Interspersed with this are vocal performances of the sounds of Times Square, as if the city itself is singing to you. Compass Song is centered at Duffy Square, with sounds spread between 49th Street to the north, 42nd Street to the south, 8th Avenue to the west, and 6th Avenue to the east. Let the map guide you within the active soundscape to seek out more of the audio experience, or wander through the district using only the app’s compass to happen upon divergent sonic elements.

Borosilicate glass design is an area of huge growth and exciting technical developments. Artists are looking towards progressive and innovative design solutions for both functional and non-functional objects. Over the last 10 years, a new generation has quietly taken on a high level of interest in this design field, bringing a necessity and focus to the material and objects. In this class, you will be presented with a series of problem solving exercises that will lead to well designed borosilicate objects. As a group we will discuss the pieces, their aesthetics, how they are used, and place them in our current culture. As designers, we are responsible for recognizing the full scope and complexity of these objects, and their place in our world and homes. Through research, discussions and exercises we will approach design structure, and work towards completed pieces.

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked." With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade." Time Magazine cheers, "if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place." The Gershwin Theatre on 50th Street and Broadway is that magical place. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story. It will send your spirits soaring to heights you'll never forget.

The Birdland Theater is proud to announce that legendary, Grammy-nominated songstress Marilyn Maye will be headlining in the brand new performance space for two weeks. Ms. Maye will be accompanied by the Tedd Firth Trio from July 24 – 28, and the Billy Stritch Trio from July 31 – August 4, with shows at 7pm each night. Marvelous Ms. Maye, who just celebrated her 90th birthday with a string of concerts and a featured interview on CBS Sunday Morning, has been crisscrossing the country playing hundreds of clubs, concert halls and joints for over seven decades. From a humble beginning as an amateur contest singing sensation in her native Topeka, Kansas, to 76 appearances on "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson," a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in the mid 1960's and inclusion in the Smithsonian permanent collection of 20th century recordings, vocalist Marilyn has done it all. But despite endless kudos -- the late Ella Fitzgerald dubbed her "The greatest white female singer in the world" -- Marilyn was performing infrequently when a 2006 appearance at Lincoln Center sparked a career renaissance. Rex Reed said, "The second coming of Marilyn Maye continues full steam ahead… miss her at your own peril," while the Wall Street Journal said, "she has the rhythm and musicianship of a great jazz singer, the projection and personality of a heavyweight Broadway diva." The New York Times' Stephen Holden summed it up, saying Marilyn's "…relationship with her fans has the emotional depth and complexity of a solid, rewarding marriage. She has the inexhaustible stamina and vocal heft of a woman half her age, and her spirited optimism is irresistibly contagious."

The Early Childhood Math Program is intended for children ages 2-6. Caregivers and children are invited to come together to this exciting program.

This class will take on an experimental approach to learning how to work with hot glass. Exercises will revolve around experiments to test material boundaries through traditional and unconventional processes.

This class is open to beginner and intermediate students who wish to try out unusual ideas and methods.

Hunting the Whale: The Rise and Fall of a Southampton Industry - Southampton Historical Museum: Rogers MansionThrough August 04, 2018 - Southampton

This interactive and inclusive exhibit adds new discoveries to the accumulation of documentation and artifacts collected over more than 100 years to illuminate Southampton Village’s prominent role in the whaling industry at its mid-19th century height. Whaling tools, maps, illustrations, archival images and text will be displayed with an eye toward making the exhibit accessible to audiences of varied interests and all ages. Among those whose roles will be highlighted are local indigenous people, slaves, servants, whaling captains, and the families that were sustained by the whaling industry.  This exhibit takes place inside the historic Captain Albert Rogers Mansion, a 20 room Greek-revival house was built in 1843 during the peak of the whaling industry. It was built by Captain Rogers was one of the many prosperous whaling captains living in Southampton during the 19th century. The Rogers Mansion is a property of the Southampton Historical Museum.

BEFORE WE'RE GONE a new play by Jerry Small, Directed by Joe John Battista A Pulitzer-winning playwright, screenwriter and outspoken political activist, who has disappeared from her high-profile life in New York, Hollywood, and the tabloids, is hiding under an assumed name in a secluded seaside motel in Santa Barbara, California, where she intends to end her life by her own hand. At the very moment she is about to commit suicide, there is a knock on her door. It is a man with whom she had a brief relationship twenty-five years ago, when she was thirty-six and at the height of her Broadway fame and he was a naïve twenty, studying to be a Catholic priest. They met during the nineteen fifties in Reno's famous art-deco Mapes Hotel, where she was staying for her six-weeks divorce. He was working in the hotel while on sabbatical from the Franciscan Order, struggling to resolve doubts about the priesthood and himself. Over the last twenty-five years, they have not seen each other nor spoken. The play stars Leenya Rideout, whose Broadway credits include War Horse, Company, Cabaret and Cyrano de Bergerac. Also starring John Zdrojeski, who has appeared in numerous regional productions. Jay Russell, who has appeared on Broadway, and Emily Juliette Murphy, who has appeared Off Broadway.

The 2018 edition of the annual AIRspace exhibition features work by 2017-2018 visual arts residents Christopher Aque, Priyanka Dasgupta and Chad Marshall, Carl E. Hazlewood, Trokon Nagbe, Macon Reed, Gabriela Salazar, Patrice Renee Washington, and Chris Watts. Marking the culmination of their residency at Abrons Arts Center, Not an edge but a hinge presents works across a range of media, including painting, sculpture, video, and site-specific installation, and is organized by AIRspace curatorial residents Christian Camacho-Light and Alexis Wilkinson. Aligning with Abrons' wide-ranging multidisciplinary performance and educational programming, Not an edge but a hinge attends to difference within shared time and space. Occupying the building's three main galleries, the exhibition takes a kaleidoscopic approach in order to honor the complex and shifting affinities between individual artworks. In the exhibition, several works withhold the figure from view, privileging the outline or trace over direct representation, investigating notions of disclosure or voyeurism. Others establish an indexical, material, or metaphorical relationship to place, often marking displacement or loss. Additional works use aesthetic forms and cultural objects as means of excavating histories of social violence, emphasizing their ties to the present. These overlapping elements function like hinges within a network of flexible relations, ultimately reflecting how these artists approach issues of identity in ways that elude and exceed a fixed reading.

This docudrama with music chronicles the true story of nine brave students poised to integrate the formerly all-white Little Rock Central High School. At the dawn of the civil rights movement, three years after Thurgood Marshall successfully litigated the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case, Little Rock, Arkansas became ground zero in the fight to integrate public schools across America. Through a series of events and with the aid of an emerging technology called television, living rooms across the world would witness a real life drama featuring a brave and stalwart group of black teenagers, who would become known as The Little Rock Nine, along with a supporting cast including a defiant Governor, a resolute President Eisenhower, and 11,000 federal and state troops. Integrating Little Rock Central High School would become an important and dramatic prerequisite step in implementing the new federal law. Successfully completing the school year would become its ultimate test. N.B. Strong language To receive and email alert when tickets go on sale, sign up here!

Le Blanc is a non-linear full length play with elements of music, art distillation, light design, and dance. Our show follows the rags to riches (back to rags) autobiography of the world infamous, unapologetically Black, openly queer, political, and talented (fictional) character of Wellington "Isyss" Le Blanc.

The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, during the Jim Crow era in America. Referred to simply as The Green Book in its day, the publication served as a guide to finding businesses that were welcoming to black Americans, including hotels and restaurants, during an era when open and often legally prescribed discrimination against nonwhites was widespread. These designated safe spaces were places of refuge and leisure, where one could spend quality time with friends and family. The depiction of black America at leisure is a theme of continued interest to Adams, who explores how engaging in leisure as a form of relaxation and reflection can be a political act when embraced by members of black or working-class communities. Derrick Adams: Sanctuary reflects on the plight of working-class black people before and during the Civil Rights Movement, and their determination to pursue the same American Dream afforded to others. Today, The Green Book serves as a poignant artifact and reminder of the importance of equality during a time in which uneven law enforcement continues to negatively shape the lives and experiences of many black Americans.

Ross, Martino Stierli, Aurora Tang of The Center for Land Use Interpretation, Chandraguptha Thenuwara, Jan Vorisek and more. Swiss Institute is delighted to announce the third edition of its Architecture and Design Series, entitled READYMADES BELONG TO EVERYONE. This marks the inaugural exhibition at SI's new home in the heart of the East Village, located at 38 St Marks Pl. Curated by Niels Olsen and Fredi Fischli, directors of exhibitions in the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (gta) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich, READYMADES BELONG TO EVERYONE features more than 50 artists, architects and collectives from 16 countries with 17 new commissions. The exhibition extends contemporary understandings of the readymade, as it has filtered through histories of art, design and architecture to become mutated, redoubled, and accelerated in urban environments of commerce and control. It has been more than a century since Marcel Duchamp reorganized aesthetic categories with his seminal Fountain (1917), creating new attention to context and found or manufactured materials. By the 1980s, such artistic conversations had evolved into strategies of appropriation even more explicitly associated with critique, especially in regard to mass-produced objects and commercial imagery. During that decade, the immediate neighborhood of Swiss Institute's new location in the East Village became an epicenter of experimentation with readymade forms: David Hammons sold snowballs to passersby in his Bliz-aard Ball Sale on Cooper Square in 1983; and works by artists such as Jeff Koons, Haim Steinbach, and Jennifer Bolande, featuring everyday items, were shown at galleries such as International with Monument, started by artists Kent Klamen, Elizabeth Koury, and Meyer Vaisman, and Nature Morte, run by artists Peter Nagy and Alan Belcher.

Every two years, MoMA's celebrated New Photography exhibition series presents urgent and compelling ideas in recent photography and photo-based art. This year's edition, Being, asks how photography can capture what it means to be human. At a time when questions about the rights, responsibilities, and dangers inherent in being represented—and in representing others—are being debated around the world, the works featured in Being call attention to assumptions about how individuals are depicted and perceived. Many challenge the conventions of photographic portraiture, or use tactics such as masking, cropping, or fragmenting to disorient the viewer. In others, snapshots or found images are taken from their original context and placed in a new one to reveal hidden stories. While some of the works might be considered straightforward representations of individuals, others do not include images of the human body at all. Together, they explore how personhood is expressed today, and offer timely perspectives on issues of privacy and exposure; the formation of communities; and gender, heritage, and psychology. Exploring new ground and the many forms that the photographic image can take, New Photography is a key part of the Museum's contemporary program. Since 1985, the series has introduced new work by over 100 artists from around the world. In 2018, Being brings together an international group of 17 artists at various stages in their careers, all presenting their work at the Museum for the first time.

Returning to the Museum for this building-wide show, Smith has selected 50 works in a range of mediums – from works on paper to photographs to sculpture. The exhibition features pieces never before shown in this way – in a dramatically designed National Historic Landmark, originally built in 1887 as a house of worship. Don't miss this chance to have after-work drinks with the art of Kiki Smith!

Pushkin - The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture - Black Box TheaterThrough August 25, 2018 - New York

Pushkin, a new verse play written by Jonathan Leaf, examines the final two-years in the life of Russia's most enduring poet, Alexander Pushkin. Always quick to take offense, delusionally jealous, forever in debt, and censored by Tsar Nicholas I, Pushkin chronicles the sufferings of an artist of modest rank and mixed race, the confrontation between his exceptional talent and a flawed society, and the painful choice between duty and personal happiness. In his struggles to end serfdom and reform his homeland, Pushkin, Russia's first literary superstar, raised his voice above exile and censorship to turn his art into a substitute for politics poetically declaring, "Autocratic miscreant, Thee, thy throne I detest."

Saturdays and Sundays in July and August, pint-sized pirates can set their sails to Philipsburg Manor! A new mobile game sets the scene for swashbuckling fun as children hunt through the site's grounds to load precious cargo onto their digital pirate ships. Kids looking for adventure can pick up a tattoo and keep watch for pirates and sword fights. But only those who finish the game will capture the treasure! Perfect for ages 5-8.

Roundabout reunites writer Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews, Significant Other) and director Daniel Aukin (Bad Jews) for Skintight, a scorching examination of beauty, youth and sex. Reeling from her ex-husband's engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Idina Menzel) turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who's 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi's son. Who's also 20. And definitely gay. Skintight assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what's on the inside.

This June, artist Erwin Wurm will bring his "Hot Dog Bus" to one of New York City’s most popular summer destinations, Brooklyn Bridge Park. This modified, vintage Volkswagen Microbus has been transformed into a bright yellow, overstuffed food truck from which free hot dogs will be served to visitors all summer, hinting at the gastronomic connections between the City’s most iconic street food and the artist’s Austrian homeland. The bus’ bloated form will encourage audiences to reconsider the relationship between capitalism and consumption in today’s culture, while the act of eating, according to Wurm, can be considered an additive sculptural process in its own right.  

Features well-manicured trees, spectacular views, and tasty peach varieties – home to more than 12 varieties of pick-your-own peaches. General Admission, includes parking, entrance to peach orchard, hay wagon ride, petting zoo, and picnic area with tables. 

The cultural impact of the equation known as The Rammellzee (1960—2010) — legendary artist, graf writer, hip-hop pioneer, Gothic Futurist theoretician and New York cult icon — set the groundwork for today's interdisciplinary creative hyphenates. Taking over the entirety of Red Bull Arts New York, “RAMMELLZEE: Racing for Thunder”'s largest survey to date examines the evolution of the artist's diverse body of work. From seminal post-graffiti works to his rare but robust formal output throughout the 1980s, the show features important artworks and sculptures created over the last 20 years of his life. The exhibition gathers archival materials and artworks from RAMMELLEZEE's estate and collections around the world, alongside oral histories recently commissioned by Red Bull Arts New York. This historic survey aims to introduce a new generation to an artist-prophet from the edge who found himself, again and again, in the center of everything.

Reflecting the culinary diversity of the neighborhood, the Jackson Heights market offers a broad selection of vegetables, fruit, eggs, fish, honey, chicken and specialty Mexican produce.

Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish DIRECTED BY JOEL GREY - Museum of Jewish HeritageThrough August 26, 2018 - New York

In Yiddish with English and Russian supertitles. Experience Fiddler on the Roof in a new way– in Yiddish, the language of Tevye and his family! Directed by Oscar and Tony Award-winner Joel Grey, the rich Yiddish translation by Shraga Friedman, z”l, adds new depth and dimension to the most well-known Jewish musical in the world. Don’t miss the beloved story of a community and its struggle to balance traditions and desires in a changing world. The little town of Anatevka will bustle with the sounds of mame-loshn in the U.S. premiere of Fiddler in Yiddish from July 4 through August 26, 2018, at the Museum of Jewish Heritage.

Historically, blondness has been a signifier for desirability and beauty. It speaks to "purity" and whiteness—the purity of whiteness—like no other bodily attribute except, perhaps, blue eyes. In the twenty-first century, blondness is the look desired by our American president, pop stars, rappers, television announcers, Hollywood celebrities, the boy next door, and some, though not all, Asian Americans, African Americans, white Americans, Arab Americans, and LatinX Americans. The desirability of blonde hair has no genre boundaries, no pronoun limitation, and no class limit. Whether one is a bottle blonde or regularly goes to the salon, blondness is ubiquitous. In Stamped, filmmaker and photographer John Lucas and writer Claudia Rankine have collaboratively captured photographs of dyed blonde hair, as seen on the heads of strangers and acquaintances. These images—zoomed in and cropped—are framed as still images and also transposed onto real postage stamps. The stamp, a form of currency with inherent mobility, becomes a metaphor for questioning: What do we attribute to blondness? Where do we think it will take us? These questions are implicated in recorded conversations between Rankine and the individuals that she encounters, which play throughout the gallery space. Meanwhile, a video installation by Lucas depicts cascading strands of hair.

The guitar-wielding Captain Jam and his live band of musicians, storytellers, and dancers take the stage and invite the audience to join a musical adventure around the globe – even giving children the chance to come up on stage, play a drum solo, or sing in a microphone. By the end of the show, imagination, live music, colorful costumes, and lots of audience interaction have helped Captain Jam complete the three-part FunikiJam mission: to have fun, to jam, and to celebrate summer around the world.

Sunday mornings are all about Storytime! What exciting adventures will your children discover in the pages of a book this week? Join us and see.

Zero Waste Design Guidelines Exhibition - AIA New York | Center for ArchitectureThrough September 01, 2018 - New York

The Center for Architecture will host an exhibition curated by journalist Andrew Blum that will look beyond the guidelines and explore the challenges and opportunities latent during a particular segment of the lifecycle of trash: the brief period between when we release it from our hands and it rolls away on the back of a truck. The exhibition, on view from June 14 to September 1, 2018, will be accompanied by a full-day symposium, evening panels, and k-12 educational programming for local students.

Ace Hotel New York and John Chaich are proud to present Vivek Shraya: Trisha, a captivating photo series in which the artist occupies spaces and wears outfits to recreate photographs of her mother from the 1970s when she was a single woman recently immigrated to Canada. The concept was born from a desire to document striking physical similarities Shraya first began to notice while transitioning. Chaich notes that Vivek's imperfect recreations remind viewers that "queer people create our gender presentations with what's available to us, wherever we are." The collection's juxtaposition of new and source images creates a dialogue across time, genealogy and gender. Canada's Vivek Shraya is a queer-identifying artist whose body of work spans photography, albums, films and books. Her 2017 album with Queer Songbook Orchestra, Part-Time Woman, was included in CBC's Best Canadian Albums of 2017; her first book of poetry, even this page is white, won a 2017 Publisher Triangle Award and was longlisted for CBC's Canada Reads and her debut novel, She of the Mountains, was named one of The Globe and Mail's Best Books. The founder of the publishing imprint VS. Books and a four-time Lambda Literary Award finalist, Vivek was a 2016 Pride Toronto Grand Marshal, has received honors from the Toronto Arts Foundation and The Writers' Trust of Canada, and is currently an Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Calgary. A reception for the exhibition will take place on Thursday July 12 at 7pm. On view through August 31.

Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms - New York Historical SocietyThrough September 02, 2018 - Upper West Side

The first internationally touring exhibition devoted to Rockwell's iconic depictions of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Four Freedoms launches at the New-York Historical Society in May. The traveling exhibition, which was organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, Massachusetts, explores how Rockwell's 1943 paintings—Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Fear, and Freedom from Want—gave visual voice to Roosevelt's call to the defense of freedom worldwide and took their place among the most enduring images in the history of American art.

Following New-York Historical, the exhibition travels to The Henry Ford, Dearborn, MI; The George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum, Washington, D.C.; Mémorial de Caen, Normandy, France; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX ; and the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, MA.

Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro - The Museum of Arts and DesignThrough September 02, 2018 - Columbus Circle

In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of 91. Surprisingly, given her status as the elder stateswoman of the feminist art movement, the tremendous impact of her oeuvre on contemporary art has yet to be fully acknowledged or critically assessed. This exhibition seeks to redress this gap in the history of American art through an exploration of Schapiro’s signature femmages, the term she coined to describe her distinctive hybrid of painting and collage inspired by women’s domestic arts and crafts and the feminist critique of the hierarchy of art and craft. In examining the aesthetic and political objectives of Schapiro’s femmages, this exhibition highlights the pivotal role her work and leadership played in the expansion of the art world to include historically marginalized forms of craft, decoration, and abstract patterning associated with femininity and women’s work.

Although she is unheralded as the source, the influence of Schapiro’s subjective approach to forms of decoration can be identified today in an remarkably diverse group of artists who continue to find inspiration in her embrace of artistic practices outside the art historical canon. To highlight this legacy, works by a select group of contemporary artists, including Sanford Biggers, Josh Blackwell, Edie Fake, Jeffrey Gibson, Judy Ledgerwood, Jodie Mack, Sara Rahbar, Ruth Root, and Jasmin Sian, will be exhibited alongside Schapiro’s signature femmages. This juxtaposition of historic and contemporary work brings into critical focus the tremendous role Schapiro’s femmages played in the reframing of craft and decoration, while shining a light on the way artists today, both distinguished and emerging, continue to approach the decorative as a language of abstraction tied to the personal and the political.

MoMI is opening “The New Genres: Video in the Internet Age,” a new exhibit exploring how modern platforms and technology have drastically impacted not only how we watch, make, and share videos, but what kinds of videos those are as well. As part of the exhibition, Polygon created a series of videos breaking down the biggest topics, including ASMR, Unboxing, Explainers, Let’s Play, Reaction videos and Vlogging. These videos can be seen throughout the exhibit, as well as in the main amphitheater. You can read more about the exhibit here, and find additional details below.

Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. This all singing, all dancing, high-energy show features a score by eight-time Academy Award® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman including “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” “King of New York” and “Santa Fe.”

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek. Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.

Special Exhibit: “Stuffed Animal CARE-ium”  - Maritime AquariumThrough September 03, 2018 - Norwalk

Follow a rescued baby loggerhead sea turtle through its first year of life. The Aquarium will raise it for release into the Atlantic Ocean next fall. The guest sea turtle, only about 3 inches at first, will live in a new habitat near the "Sea Turtles" exhibit.

See a rare “great white of the wetlands” – an 8-foot albino alligator – in a special exhibit. Albino alligators are white because they lack the pigment called melanin that normally gives color to the skin, hair, and eyes. Aside from being creamy white, they look and act like a regular gator. 

Albino alligators are very rare because, when young in the wild, they’re more obvious to predators. Plus, white alligators can’t bask in the sun like normal alligators – a necessary behavior for cold-blooded reptiles – because they’re susceptible to sunburns. The Aquarium’s visiting albino alligator will enjoy a special shaded enclosure out on the riverfront courtyard.

Highlights Of German Art from the Collection - Neue Galerie New YorkThrough September 03, 2018 - New York

The German collection spans the period from 1890 to 1940, and emphasizes the key movements of that era, including Expressionism, with canvases by members of the Brücke (Bridge), including Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Pechstein, and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, and also artists affiliated with the Blaue Reiter (Blue Rider), such as Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, August Macke, and Gabriele Münter. The Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) movement is also addressed, with important selections by Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, and Christian Schad. In the decorative arts, the Bauhaus is a special area of emphasis, with major examples of design by Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Wilhelm Wagenfeld. Collectively, these works reflect this tumultuous epoch in German history, as the nation shifted from an empire to a fragile democracy under the Weimar Republic following World War I. Likewise, the utopian ideal of uniting art and life in the pre-war era was replaced by a more practical embrace of a machine aesthetic, as artists reconciled themselves to the emergence of modern technology.

The next Chefs Club Counter pop-up partner in the annex space is edible cookie dough sensation D?!, who will be running a Camp Cookie D? themed shop all summer. This summer's camp themed pop-up will offer delicious takes on classic childhood camp desserts, fun summer-camp themed activities, and more.

Camp Cookie D? is decorated to remind guests of their favorite camp memories with a canoe, swing, mural wall, and plenty of photo opportunities. Guests can lounge with their desserts on the outdoor Adirondack chairs and wood stumps located on Lafayette Street outside the shop. 

Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele: 1918 Centenary - Neue Galerie New YorkThrough September 03, 2018 - New York

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) and Egon Schiele (1890-1918) are two of the greatest artists Austria produced in the early twentieth century. Although born nearly thirty years apart, both tragically died in 1918—the same year that the Austro-Hungarian Empire ceased to exist following its defeat in World War I. Over the intervening century, the works of Klimt and Schiele have come to define the fertile creativity that marked the so-called "joyous apocalypse," an apt term used to connote the waning days of Habsburg rule. This show pays tribute to the groundbreaking achievements of Klimt and Schiele, two masterful artists who are key figures in the collection of the Neue Galerie New York.

Madison Square Park Conservancy Announces Artist Diana Al-Hadid’s First Major Commissioned Outdoor Public Art Exhibition - Madison Square ParkThrough September 03, 2018 - New York

Madison Square Park Conservancy Announces Artist Diana Al-Hadid’s First Major Commissioned Outdoor Public Art Exhibition Date: May 14, 2018 through September 3, 2018. Madison Square Park Conservancy announces its thirty-sixth exhibition, Delirious Matter by artist Diana Al-Hadid. Six new sculptures will be installed across Madison Square Park’s central Oval Lawn, peripheral lawns, and northern reflecting pool. Delirious Matter is the artist’s first major public art project. It will be on view from May 14, 2018- September 3, 2018. In spring 2018, artist Diana Al-Hadid (American, b. Aleppo, Syria 1981, lives and works in Brooklyn) will create newly commissioned sculptures in Madison Square Park. Two wall works will be combined with rows of hedges to form a room suggesting the elegiac beauty of deteriorating structures nestled into plant material. Three reclining female figures, titled Synonym, sit on plinths and will be displayed on the surrounding lawns. In the Park’s reflecting pool, the artist will realize a site-specific sculptural bust of a female figure perched atop a fragmented mountain. Al-Hadid is best known for creating work using traditional and contemporary sculpture materials and processes in unfamiliar ways that pivot amongst architecture, figuration, and abstraction. Despite the eroded appearance, the process is additive. Al-Hadid devised a distinctive process that is, in her words, “a blend between fresco and tapestry.” Delirious Matter is the first project by the artist and the first Conservancy commission to unite sculpture with plant materials.

A park-wide solo exhibition of newly commissioned works by Virginia Overton that refashion found materials with dynamism and potency. In succinct, elegant forms, often accompanied with wry humor, Overton addresses concepts of labor, economics, and the land. Her material choices–fundamental elements for construction and fabrication–combined with her transparent approach to process, evoke narratives of self-reliance, creative constraints, and expediency. At the park, Overton creates new iterations of familiar works--an altered pickup truck, a water feature, a roof truss gem sculpture, and a suspended beam, among others.

MoMA PS1 will present the first solo museum exhibition of New York-based artist Julia Phillips (b. 1985, German), featuring newly commissioned major works in combination with existing sculptures. Primarily working with ceramics, Phillips creates objects and scenes that are intimately connected to the body. Her sculptures mostly avoid direct figuration, however, and instead propose various interventions into and support structures for the body, emphasizing its absence from the works. Impressions of the human form are visible through elements like casts of orifices, handprints, and other traces, which indicate particular bodily placements in relation to her forms. While suggestive of particular functions and purposes that are overtly physical, these works also extend to the social and psychological. For Phillips, the body is entangled in the real and abstract spaces of politics, evident through indications given in her arrangements as well as the works' titles, which are often directives for specific actions.

MoMA PS1 presents the US premiere of photographer Gauri Gill's most recent body of work, Acts of Appearance, a series of vivid color photographs for which the artist worked closely with members of an Adivasi community in Jawhar district, Maharashtra, India. Gill's collaborator-subjects are renowned for their papier-mâché objects, including traditional sacred masks. In these pictures they engage in everyday village activities while wearing new masks, made expressly for this body of work, which depict living beings with the physical characteristics of humans, animals, or valued objects. A range of scenarios and narratives, situated in both "reality" and dreamlike states, come together in the photographs, which simultaneously portray symbolic or playful representations as well as the familiar experiences of community members against the backdrop of their home and culture.

David Rosaire and the One and Only Pekingese Dog Act - Long Island Game FarmThrough September 03, 2018 - Manorville

David Rosaire and his pack of adorable and very talented dogs are back at the Long Island Game Farm for the 2018 season.

Though he was only thirty-two at the time of his passing, the Iranian-American theater director Reza Abdoh's (1963-95) mark on the world of theater was unmistakable. Relentlessly inventive, he pushed his actors—and audiences—to their limits amid ambitious, unusual, disorienting stage sets. Abdoh's aesthetic language borrowed from fairy tales, BDSM, talk shows, raves, video art, and the history of avant-garde theater. This exhibition, the first large-scale retrospective of Abdoh's work, will highlight the diverse video works that Abdoh produced for his performances and an installation based on his 1991 production Bogeyman. The exhibition also includes contextual materials reflecting the club scenes in both Los Angeles and New York, the culture wars of the Reagan era, and the AIDS crisis. Abdoh died of AIDS in 1995.

Titled Between Community and Commerce, the exhibition presents a series of works exploring the former fashion designer's interest in repetition, textiles and patterning, in addition to her deeply held curiosity in social and cultural signifiers, in this case the intimacy of the body in a world of mass consumption and commerce. The installation in the heart of Times Square and the storied commercial building in the Fashion District––the home of so many globalized manufacturing decision makers—is for Berman a fitting showcase to this end. www.zaz10ts.com 10 Times Square (1441 Broadway@ 41st Street) Subways: Times Square 42nd Street (1,2,3, 7, N, Q, R, S, W) , Bryant Park (B,D,F,M)

Microsoft and Artist Mel Chin Unveil 'Unmoored' in New York's Times Square - Broadway PlazaThrough September 05, 2018 - New York

Artist Mel Chin will take over Times Square's Broadway plazas on July 11 with two new installations, 'Wake' and 'Unmoored', as part of a multi-location exhibition Mel Chin: All Over The Place, produced by the Queens Museum and public art nonprofit No Longer Empty. 'Wake', a 24-foot-tall construction resembling a shipwreck intertwined with the skeleton of a marine mammal, adjacent to a 21-foot-tall sculpture based on the figure head of 19th century opera star Jenny Lind, will serve as a bridge to a ground-breaking digital work, 'Unmoored'. In collaboration with Microsoft, 'Unmoored' uses cutting-edge Mixed Reality technology to present a vision of a world where global warming has gone unchecked, with technology bringing the work to life through digital interaction. The augmented reality experience can be viewed on cell phones and tablets through a downloaded app, and will extend from 45th to 47th street from July 11-September 5. A heightened HoloLens experience of the project, created by Microsoft, will be available from July 11-13.

HISTORY CALLED IT HEROISM. THEY CALLED IT HIGH SCHOOL. LITTLE ROCK tells the riveting true story of the Little Rock Nine, the first black students to attend their city's formerly segregated central high school. What began as their quest for a better education soon became a national crisis, igniting the passions of a divided country and sparking a historic fight for justice in the Jim Crow south. On the cusp of the Civil Rights movement, a changing world watched as these nine children from Arkansas battled for their rights with only a book and pencil. At once harrowing and hopeful, LITTLE ROCK brings urgently to life the Nine's untold personal stories of challenge and resilience, conjuring memories of America not so long ago. From writer and director Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, this deeply moving play honors the bravery of these young heroes and asks audiences: Would you have had the courage?

Celebrating Bill Cunningham - New-York Historical Society MuseumThrough September 09, 2018 - New York

Celebrating Bill Cunningham marks the New-York Historical Society's recent acquisition of objects, personal correspondence, ephemera, and photographs that reflect the life and work of Bill Cunningham, one of the late 20th century's most influential trend-spotters and style authorities. The legendary New York Times journalist and photographer was frequently spied on the city's streets, at fashion shows, and elegant soirées capturing New York's fashion innovators and cultural glitterati. Showcasing a selection from Cunningham's Facades project?his eight-year photographic project documenting New York City's architectural and fashion history, shown at the Museum in 2014?Celebrating Bill Cunningham also features photographs documenting his friendship with floral designer Toni Cimino, known as Suzette; a Cunningham bicycle; his Nikon camera; signature blue jacket; ephemera; and unforgettable William J hats. Curated by Debra Schmidt Bach, curator of decorative arts.

Celebrating Bill Cunningham marks the New-York Historical Society's recent acquisition of objects, personal correspondence, ephemera, and photographs that reflect the life and work of Bill Cunningham. One of the late 20th century's most influential trend-spotters and style authorities, the legendary New York Times journalist and photographer was frequently spied on the city's streets, at fashion shows, and elegant soirées capturing images of New York's fashion innovators and cultural glitterati. Among the highlights of Celebrating Bill Cunningham are a bicycle that he rode around the city; his first camera, an Olympus Pen-D, 35mm; signature blue jacket; personal photographs of Cunningham at home and with friends; correspondence, including a few of the hand-made Valentines he frequently sent to friends; and a New York City street sign, "Bill Cunningham Corner," that was temporarily installed at 5th Avenue and 57th Street in his honor, following his death. Soon after he arrived in New York, Cunningham worked as a milliner, and items on view from his millinery line, William J., include an innovative beach hat, along with other hats and fascinators; and a press release written for the William J. spring 1960 millinery show. Also on display are selections from Cunningham's Facades, his eight-year photographic project documenting New York City's architectural and fashion history, which was shown at the Museum in 2014.

In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of ninety-one. Surprisingly, given her status as the elder stateswoman of the feminist art movement, the tremendous impact of her oeuvre on contemporary art has yet to be fully acknowledged or critically assessed. This exhibition seeks to redress this gap in the history of American art through an exploration of Schapiro's signature femmages, the term she coined to describe her distinctive hybrid of painting and collage inspired by women's domestic arts and crafts and the feminist critique of the hierarchy of art and craft. In examining the aesthetic and political objectives of Schapiro's femmages, this exhibition highlights the pivotal role her work and leadership played in the expansion of the art world to include historically marginalized forms of craft, decoration, and abstract patterning associated with femininity and women's work. Although she is unheralded as the source, the influence of Schapiro's subjective approach to forms of decoration can be identified today in an remarkably diverse group of artists who continue to find inspiration in her embrace of artistic practices outside the art historical canon. To highlight this legacy, works by a select group of contemporary artists, including Sanford Biggers, Josh Blackwell, Edie Fake, Jeffrey Gibson, Judy Ledgerwood, Jodie Mack, Sara Rahbar, Ruth Root, and Jasmin Sian, will be exhibited alongside Schapiro's signature femmages. This juxtaposition of historic and contemporary work brings into critical focus the tremendous role Schapiro's femmages played in the reframing of craft and decoration, while shining a light on the way artists today, both distinguished and emerging, continue to approach the decorative as a language of abstraction tied to the personal and the political.

The museum draws upon its collection to present a selection of favrile blown glass by Tiffany Studios.

Cirque Ziva, the world-class cirque spectacular from the internationally renowned touring troop, The Golden Dragon Acrobats.

Los Angeles–based artist and designer Tanya Aguiñiga has established herself as a crucial voice working at the intersection of fiber art, design, social practice, and activism. Her work, ranging from her "Performance Crafting" series—which uses craft to generate dialogues about identity, culture, and gender—to furniture whose material and form reimagine its functionality to provide "support," shows a commitment to design thinking as political. At the heart of her practice is an inquiry into how community is created, and the role that craft, design, and materiality play in its formation. Founded by Aguiñiga and launched in 2015, AMBOS (Art Made Between Opposite Sides) is a long-term initiative that activates sites along the US–Mexico border through collaborative art-making and storytelling projects. Started as a month-long activation at the San Ysidro border crossing in Tijuana, it has evolved its focus to record and paint a picture of life along the length of the border. To date, AMBOS, in collaboration with artists and community organizations working with border issues/themes, has produced programs along the border between the United States and Mexico, stopping at thirteen US/Mexico ports of entry, and crossing a total of forty times. In 2018 Aguiñiga will complete the project, activating the remainder of the border from where she left off at El Paso/Ciudad Juárez.

Nearly two thousand miles long, the US-Mexico border (la frontera) is the most frequently crossed international border in the world. Although predominantly depicted in the American media as a hub of drug trafficking and violence, the border—porous in nature—is also a place that allows for the exchange of ideas, wealth, and culture. Recently at the forefront of political and cultural conversation following the current US President's anti-immigration discourse and executive orders, the border has been characterized by contradictions since the nineteenth century, when the US annexed an important portion of Mexican territory. For Mexicans, Central Americans, and the United States citizens living alongside it, the border presents daily challenges that carry within them both hope and devastation. It is a complex physical, economic, cultural, social, and emotional landscape of human interaction.

Exhibit – Becoming Tiffany: From Hudson Valley Painter to Gilded Age Tastemaker - Lyndhurst MansionThrough September 24, 2018 - Tarrytown

A groundbreaking new exhibition of works by legendary artist Louis Comfort Tiffany will fill the Lyndhurst Mansion and gallery this summer. Charting the development of Tiffany's career from the 1870s through the early 1900s, the display features more than 50 pieces, focusing primarily on early and rarely-exhibited works. The exhibit includes glass and mosaics from the Haworth Collection in Accrington, England, the hometown of Tiffany's glass foreman, rare textiles from the Mark Twain House, rarely seen early paintings from the Brooklyn and Nassau County Museums and furniture and decorative arts from the Driehaus and other notable private collections. Based on new research, the exhibition conjures little known and unexpected dimensions of Tiffany's career. Works in the exhibition reveal his radical exploration of racial inequality in the North, his work with the Jewish community on synagogues in Albany and Buffalo when such intermingling was not common, his pictorial documentation of rampant industrialization along the Hudson River, his adoption of Orientalist subjects, as well as his close but often difficult relationships with women patrons, collaborators, and designers. In particular, the exhibition re-establishes the reputation of Helen Gould, eldest daughter of railroad baron Jay Gould, as a significant Tiffany patron. Tiffany is one of the most popular American artists, and his later work on Tiffany lamps and stained-glass church windows is well documented. Becoming Tiffany takes a different approach to the artist's life and work and focuses on his early work as a painter and decorator, telling the story of how he used his wealth and position in society as the son of the founder of Tiffany & Co. to further his career.

Swords into Ploughshares: Sculpture by Jay Moss - Hebrew Home at Riverdale, Goldfine Pavilion Lobby GalleryThrough October 07, 2018 - Bronx

Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection at Hebrew Home at Riverdale is pleased to announce its latest exhibition, Swords into Ploughshares: Sculpture by Jay Moss on view in the Pauline and William Goldfine Pavilion Lobby Gallery from July 15–October 7, 2018. A reception will take place on Sunday, July 15, from 1:30–3 p.m. in the Goldfine Pavilion Lobby Gallery, located at 5901 Palisade Avenue in the Riverdale section of The Bronx. This event is free and open to the public. R.S.V.P. 718.581.1596 or art@hebrewhome.org. Photo I.D. required for admission. The exhibition includes 13 sculptures made between 1980 and 2012. Many of them reflect Moss’s experience on the front lines during WWII when he served as a combat engineer. Moss has worked for more than seven decades crafting sculptures that resonate with his experience of the horrors of war and his hope for a lasting peace. In these relief and tabletop works assembled with wood, metal, sheet lead, plastic and other materials, Moss addresses a range of social issues. Sometimes whimsical or ironic, they comment on such subjects as the corrupting influence of power and the treatment of prisoners from German prison camps to Guantanamo Bay. In an assemblage that resembles an artillery shell, Anzio (2003), made from materials leftover from when he was a professional lamp designer, Moss has collaged mementos from his war experience: a letter from his mother, a patch spelling out A-N-Z-I-O, a photograph of the German howitzer that ran on a railroad track, currency from the occupation used in Italy and a photo of his brother. The work is titled after the beachhead where, despite being a combat engineer, as a newly arrived soldier he had to replace combat troops in a flooded foxhole in the winter of 1944. Another work, GI Joe (2012), depicts a tall and lanky figure in relief, made up of fragments and with a skull-like face, at the ready with his helmet and rifle. Moss’s unit arrived in Europe on August 15, 1944, for Operation Dragoon—the Allied invasion of Southern France. Months later, not far from the front, in the forests of the Vosges Mountains, Moss built what were called corduroy roads—“trees that they knock down to make a roadway so it’s very bumpy to the front,” he has explained. That’s when he saw dead soldiers on the back of an open track—a traumatic memory that lingers to this day and which Moss has said is the “essence of the front for me.” During those final months of the war, thousands of enemy soldiers were captured. That time is reflected in The Prisoner (1991), a carved wood piece with a hand-drawn and painted bandana covering the eyes. The base of the head is carved wood covered with sheet metal, a material the artist frequently employs and which is soft and malleable, ready to be hammered or molded. About the artist Born in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in 1923, to immigrant parents—Isadore Moskowitz, a clothing maker and store owner born in Russia, and Josephine Goldsmith Moskowitz, who was born in Romania—Jay Moss attended the High School of Industrial Art (later the High School of Art and Design), where he studied graphic arts, three-dimensional design, display and studio drawing. The family first lived over the tailor shop and later moved to Flatbush and Greenpoint before settling in Jackson Heights, Queens. Moss was drafted into the army in 1943 after working as a page at CBS, and trained as a combat engineer in Fort Belvoir, VA. His unit, the 36th Engineer Regiment, traveled through North Africa before arriving in early 1944 at Anzio, a key campaign of the Allied forces on the Italian coast. After Italy, he was stationed in Marseille and on the French front in the Vosges Mountains on the eastern border with Germany. Moss attended the Art Students League as a benefit of the GI Bill, studying under José de Creeft, Morris Kantor and M. Peter Piening. A mahogany head he carved while a student at the League was exhibited at Jacques Seligmann & Company in 1947. Moss also received a sculpture prize at the Nassau County Art Association in the 1960s. He was head of NBC television’s art department where he worked for 12 years and then was the owner-designer of a company that made decorative mirrors and wall pieces. After selling the company, he worked as a design consultant and lighting product designer. He also taught lighting product design at the Parsons School of Design and television graphic arts at the RCA Institute. All the while, he worked at his passion, sculpting in the basement studio of his family’s Long Island home and at their second home in Stockbridge, MA. Moss has worked both figuratively and abstractly, creating forms using a table saw and chiseling a variety of woods that he then assembles with other materials, including lead, metal and cloth. Moss has had two previous solo exhibitions, at Manhattan College in 2014 and the Historic Wells Gallery in Lenox, MA, in 2001. In 2008 he and his wife, Sabina, who have two sons, moved to Riverdale, where Moss continues his artistic practice. About Hebrew Home at Riverdale As a member of the American Alliance of Museums, the Hebrew Home at Riverdale by RiverSpring Health is committed to publicly exhibiting its art collection throughout its 32-acre campus, including the Derfner Judaica Museum and a sculpture garden overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades.

Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes - New York Historical SocietyThrough October 08, 2018 - Upper West Side

Shoes in recent years have culturally transcended their utilitarian purpose to become an object of desire and deliberation, calling up abstract considerations—like the freighted meanings of femininity, power, domination, and aspiration—for both women and men alike. Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes highlights examples from the shoe designer's extensive private collection, assembled over three decades. The exhibition considers the story of the shoe from the perspectives of collection, consumption, presentation, and production with more than 100 pairs of shoes on view. The exhibition will explore larger trends in American economic history, from industrialization to the rise of consumer culture, with a focus on women's contributions as makers, designers, and entrepreneurs. Coordinated by Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History, with Edward Maeder, consulting curator, and Jeanne Gardner Gutierrez, curatorial coordinator.

Charting the Divine Plan: The Art of Orra White Hitchcock (1796–1863) - American Folk Art MuseumThrough October 14, 2018 - New York

Charting the Divine Plan: The Art of Orra White Hitchcock (1796–1863) explores the confluence of art, love, science, and religion in the extraordinary art of Orra White Hitchcock, one of America's first female scientific illustrators. Her marriage in 1821 to Amherst College professor Edward Hitchcock cemented a years-long friendship and collaboration based on a bedrock of faith and science, mutual respect, close observation, and mental capacity for the largest of ideas. Orra White exhibited a prodigious scientific mind and abundant artistic talent at an early age. The exhibition traces her development from schoolgirl projects to highly accomplished renderings of the natural scenery of the Connecticut River Valley used in her husband's many geology publications. Less well known are colorful paintings on cotton—some more than twelve feet long—that were used to illustrate her husband's many college lectures on geology, botany, zoology, and anatomy. In these, Orra White Hitchcock communicated complex scientific principles in abstract visual terms that now appear gorgeously fresh and modern. Archival letters, manuscripts, diaries, and albums place Edward and Orra White Hitchcock in the very heart of international scientific inquiry. In the early years of the nineteenth century, when the natural world was a place of wonder, Edward Hitchcock, theologian and scientist, saw the interconnectedness of God's created world, and Orra White Hitchcock made it manifest through her art for all to comprehend and marvel.

Sacred Spaces: The Road To … and the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room - Rubin Museum of ArtThrough October 15, 2018 - Chelsea

Featuring artist Ghiora Aharoni’s series “The Road to Sanchi” and two video works by artist Arthur Liou, the exhibition engages time as a medium and challenges viewers to consider the sacred and think about their own experiences with meaningful journeys. These installations continue the exhibition’s focus on devotional activities in awe-inspiring places.

Aharoni’s series of sculptures reimagines vintage taxi meters, now obsolete, from India. Video screens embedded in the meters capture the artist’s rickshaw rides in India to sacred sites for Hindus, Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists. Each sculpture, whose form simultaneously references a time capsule and the silhouette of a stupa, becomes the oculus of a pilgrimage. 

The videos “Kora” and “Saga Dawa,” created by Arthur Liou, explore aspects of Tibetan Buddhist ritual and celebration as they take place in the breathtaking environment around Tibet’s holiest mountain, Mount Kailash.

Visitors can take a pause inside the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room, an immersive installation inspired by traditional Tibetan household shrines. They are also invited to write letters to future museumgoers in a dedicated area in the gallery.

Edible Academy Fresh From the Garden Tastings - The New York Botanical GardenThrough October 18, 2018 - Bronx

The New York Botanical Garden’s landmark 2018 exhibition, 'Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i', will focus on the iconic artist’s immersion in the Hawaiian Islands in 1939. Visitors will experience a lush flower show in the Garden’s Enid A. Haupt Conservatory evoking the gardens and landscapes that inspired O’Keeffe as well as the complex story of the flora and unique ecology of Hawai‘i.

In the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, children and their families will be introduced to plants represented in O’Keeffe’s paintings and tropical food plants of Hawai‘i. Families will receive field notebooks and follow a trail, observing and drawing nature as O’Keeffe did in her work. Children will explore the botanical science of plant structure and create paintings.

For the second long-term installation presented in The Drawing Center's Lab Corridor, Santa Fe-based artist Susan York will create a site-specific installation that references the internal structure of the museum's 35 Wooster Street building. Using graphite as a sculptural rather than a two-dimensional medium, York will create replicas of parts of the museum's foundation: eroded concrete piers that protrude above the museum's ground floor. York's long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center's building, York's installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence

'Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i' Exhibition - The New York Botanical GardenThrough October 28, 2018 - Bronx

The New York Botanical Garden’s landmark 2018 exhibition, 'Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i', will focus on the iconic artist’s immersion in the Hawaiian Islands in 1939. Visitors will experience a lush flower show in the Garden’s Enid A. Haupt Conservatory evoking the gardens and landscapes that inspired O’Keeffe as well as the complex story of the flora and unique ecology of Hawai‘i.

In the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, children and their families will be introduced to plants represented in O’Keeffe’s paintings and tropical food plants of Hawai‘i. Families will receive field notebooks and follow a trail, observing and drawing nature as O’Keeffe did in her work. Children will explore the botanical science of plant structure and create paintings.

Pioneering American modernist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887–1986) conveyed a distinct sense of place with innovative depictions of her surroundings, from stark New Mexican landscapes to New York cityscapes. Yet flowers and plants were subjects that engaged O'Keeffe throughout her career. Curated by Theresa Papanikolas, Ph.D., of the Honolulu Museum of Art, this landmark exhibition will offer a rare focus on 20 of O'Keeffe's depictions of Hawai'i from a nine-week sojourn in 1939 while on commission to produce images for a Hawaiian Pineapple Company promotional campaign. A lush exhibition in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory of Hawaiian flora and a stunning display in the LuEsther T. Mertz Library Art Gallery that includes more than 15 of O'Keeffe's Hawai'i paintings—not seen together in New York since their debut in 1940—will spotlight a transformative experience in the legendary artist's life, revealing O'Keeffe's deeply felt impressions and the enduring influence of the Islands' dramatic landscapes and exotic plants.

For Kids: A Closer Look: Georgia O'Keeffe and Hawai'I - The New York Botanical GardenThrough October 28, 2018 - Bronx

Inspired by O'Keeffe's unique style of representing close-up views of flowers and fruit, children will investigate botanical specimens and create art.

Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs - Museum of the City of New YorkThrough October 28, 2018 - New York

Stanley Kubrick was just 17 when he sold his first photograph to the pictorial magazine Look in 1945. In his photographs, many unpublished, Kubrick trained the camera on his native city, drawing inspiration from the nightclubs, street scenes, and sporting events that made up his first assignments, and capturing the pathos of ordinary life with a sophistication that belied his young age. Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs features more than 120 photographs by Kubrick from the Museum's Look Magazine archive, an unparalleled collection that includes 129 photography assignments and more than 12,000 negatives from his five years as a staff photographer.

Floor Four, The David Geffen Galleries Innovation in art is often characterized as a singular event—a bolt of lightning that strikes once and forever changes what follows. The Long Run provides an alternate view: by chronicling the continued experimentation of artists long after their breakthrough moments, it suggests that invention results from sustained critical thinking, persistent observation, and countless hours in the studio. Each work in this presentation exemplifies an artist’s distinct evolution. For some, this results from continually testing the boundaries of a given medium, for others it reflects the pressures of social, economic, and political circumstances. Often, it is a combination of both. The Long Run includes monographic galleries and rooms that bring together artists across a broad range of backgrounds and approaches. All the artists in this presentation—drawn entirely from MoMA’s collection—are united by a ceaseless desire to make meaningful work, year after year, across decades. They include Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Melvin Edwards, Gego, Philip Guston, David Hammons, Jasper Johns, Joan Jonas, Helen Levitt, Elizabeth Murray, Georgia O’Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, Frank Stella, and many others.

Wild Bees: Photographs by Paula Sharp and Ross Eatman - Bruce MuseumThrough November 11, 2018 - Greenwich

The exhibition Wild Bees features exquisite color photographs of native bees in their natural habitats, along with an exploration of their varied lifestyles. The photographs are part of an ongoing wild bee project undertaken by photojournalist and writer Paula Sharp and nature photographer Ross Eatman, who began documenting wild bees inhabiting New York's Rockefeller State Park Preserve and neighboring Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in 2014. Their lenses capture in beautiful detail the tremendous variety of shapes, colors and sizes of the insects. The essential role bees play in our planet’s health also comes into view. Wild bees are important pollinators of wildflowers, garden flowers and commercial crops including fruit trees, berries, melons and garden vegetables. Although domesticated honeybees often are used to pollinate cultivated plants, wild bees are able to pollinate many flowers and crops that honey bees cannot. The exhibition will include spectacular views of a variety of pinned bee specimens magnified by a video microscope, as well as three detailed, enlarged models of wild bees, an interactive bee Identification guide, and examples of a few wild bee homes.

Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection at Hebrew Home at Riverdale is pleased to announce its latest exhibition, Erosion: Works by Leonard Ursachi on view in the Derfner Judaica Museum and grounds from July 15–November 18, 2018. A reception and artist’s talk will be held on Sunday, October 7, 2018, from 1:30–3 p.m. in the Museum, located at 5901 Palisade Avenue in the Riverdale section of The Bronx. This event is free and open to the public. R.S.V.P. 718.581.1596 or art@hebrewhome.org. Photo I.D. required for entry at all times. In this exhibition featuring an outdoor sculpture, installation work, and related maquettes and drawings, Leonard Ursachi addresses themes of environmental and social crises caused by manmade events and reflects on how the destruction of natural resources is intimately interconnected with the effacement of human history and culture. Central to the show will be a new outdoor sculpture created for the exhibition—an iteration of Ursachi’s What a Wonderful World series. The large-scale work is on view in the sculpture garden on the Hebrew Home’s majestic 32-acre property overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades. Carved in Styrofoam and covered in Styrocrete, pigments, non-toxic tar paint and 23-karat gold leaf, What a Wonderful World (2018) touches on the inextricable link between profitability and the destruction of the environment. The expanses of 23-karat gold leaf applied to the roughly textured, “tarred” oceans reference a global, often wealth-driven disregard for the impact of environmental choices. The continents, on the other hand, appear vast and devoid of life, signifying a stripping away of natural resources. Still, Ursachi’s vision implies hope: the sculpture’s egg shape may be read as the enduring, if fragile, potential for life. Inside the Museum will be a complementary display of drawings as well as maquettes in a variety of materials, including 23-karat gold, cast urethane resin, Styrofoam, concrete, cast aluminum and marble. Also included in the exhibition is Ursachi’s installation Rise and Shine (2010), a multi-media work that addresses the disappearance of the Romanian island of Ada Kaleh, which was submerged in the Danube River in 1970 by Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceau?escu in order to build a hydroelectric plant. Inside an aquarium-like receptacle, a model of the island cast from translucent urethane resin is lit from below, alternately drowned and resuscitated as water continuously rises and falls. Ursachi based the island’s form on Ada Kaleh, the rich history of which dates back at least four centuries, having been annexed at various times by the Habsburgs, Serbs and Ottomans. Under Communist Romania, Ada Kaleh was home to a vibrant Muslim community and such historic structures as the Ada Kaleh mosque (built in 1903 on the site of a former monastery), catacombs and bazaar. The island was a popular vacation destination during the Communist period, when Romania’s heavily-guarded and insular borders prevented its own citizens from leaving the country. Ursachi visited Ada Kaleh with his family in 1968, returning with the only souvenir available at the time—an officially stamped, government-issued postcard. A reproduction of this postcard and a photograph of the artist and his brother visiting Ada Kaleh as children are on view with Rise and Shine. According to Ursachi: “In contrast to the Communist grayness that muffled the rest of Romania, Ada Kaleh was an explosion of color and noise, and home to an active Muslim community that had settled there during the Ottoman Empire.” Rise and Shine addresses the disastrous effect such industrial projects have on human culture, displacing entire populations and literally washing away layers of history. The rise and fall of the water, which submerges and reveals the resin island, both engages environmental themes and reflects the unchecked destruction that can occur under tyranny. Ceau?escu’s rule was one of the most brutal in the Eastern Bloc, with his secret police force routinely torturing and imprisoning suspected dissenters and political enemies. Ursachi was arrested for attempting to escape Romania by swimming across the Danube—near the spot where Ada Kaleh once stood—to reach Yugoslavia in 1978. His second attempt to defect, in 1980, was successful, and he was granted political asylum in France where he spent five years. He came to the United States via Canada and settled in New York in 1987. About the Artist Leonard Ursachi is a Romanian-born artist. He grew up under a dictatorship from which he defected and spent years border-hopping before settling in New York. His work reflects our contemporary world of porous borders, vulnerable shelters, and mutating identities. His sculptures and installations use architectural references as tropes for systems that enclose and exclude, protect and reject. Ursachi’s work is often site-specific, with the physical, historical and cultural aspects of the site informing the artist’s concept and use of materials. About Hebrew Home at Riverdale As a member of the American Alliance of Museums, the Hebrew Home at Riverdale by RiverSpring Health is committed to publicly exhibiting its art collection throughout its 32-acre campus, including the Derfner Judaica Museum and a sculpture garden overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades.

Tri-Spy Tours: Walk or Bike - Three Village Historical SocietyThrough November 23, 2018 - Setauket-East Setauket

The remarkable true story of General George Washington’s Setauket Spy Ring has come to life in books, exhibits and even in a new television series. Now Long Islanders, and people from around the globe, can discover and relive history for themselves in an ingenious new outdoor adventure which will take nature enthusiasts, athletes, and history lovers to a whole new level.The brainchild behind this interactive historical experience is local historian, Margo Arceri, a Strong’s Neck resident who has spent years researching the Culper Spy Ring and its effects on the American Revolutionary War on Long Island.“The Culper Spy Ring is about average people doing extraordinary things,” states Margo Arceri. “These brave men and women, who risked their lives, have changed the course of history. It’s about time they get the recognition they deserve. Tri-Spy is a fun way for people to be active and to learn about the Culper Spy Ring and our Revolutionary War past.”Arceri, who is also a historical educator working in conjunction with the Three Village Historical Society in Setauket, will now act as a guide taking cyclists, walkers and kayakers through the actual trails where the British and Patriots once roamed. Those participating will follow in the actual footsteps of the Culper Spy Ring, and along the way, historical places of interest will be pointed out and discussed. There will be three options to choose from: bike, walk and kayak tour. The biking adventure will be a fifteen mile trek, and the walking tour a three mile trek.The walk can accommodate up to twenty four people and the bike tour can accommodate 12 people. The kayak adventure is by appointment only and is an estimated four hour tour. Those participating in the kayaking tour will have the opportunity to visit the proposed site of the famous “Nancy’s clothesline” where Anna Smith Strong hung petticoats and handkerchiefs as a means of passing along secret information and see the home where Benjamin Tallmadge was born. Some sites to be visited along the tours are the Strong Family Cemetery, the creek at Conscience Bay, Setauket Village Green, Patriot’s Rock, the c.1750 Tyler-Jayne Tavern, the 1729 Caroline Church of Brookhaven, and one of the oldest surviving structures in Setauket, the c.1695 Timothy Smith House. Several 19th century homes, churches and other structures will be seen as well, including the 1812 Setauket Presbyterian Church, and the c.1825 General John Roe Satterly House. The historic Three Villages, comprised of the Setaukets, Stony Brook and the incorporated villages of Old Field and Poquott, was settled as a farming community in 1655, and later became known for its shipbuilding. Its rich history is preserved at the Three Village Historical Society, which is also the home of the Society’s newest and ongoing exhibit SPIES!  For more information visit www.culper.com.

This gorgeous new biopic tells the true story of Henry Bates, who risked his life in the perilous Amazon in the 1850s and discovered the “beautiful proof” that supported Darwin’s groundbreaking theories of evolution and natural selection. The film re-creates Bates' 11 challenging years in the Amazon rain forest as he searches for clues about how and why species – butterflies in particular – change and adapt over time to avoid predators. In the spectacular IMAX format, the lush jungle is as beautiful as the monkeys, birds, insects and one troublesome jaguar.Variety magazine said: “While nearly all made-for-IMAX educational movies boast breathtaking visuals, this one matches its imagery with an equally memorable story.”  View the trailer at http://skfilms.ca/productions/amazon-adventure-3d/

The core exhibition of the Museum, a one-of-a-kind experience that immerses visitors in the creative and technical process of producing, promoting, and presenting films, television shows, and digital entertainment. Occupying 15,000 square feet of the Museum's second and third floors, the exhibition reveals the skills, material resources, and artistic decisions that go into making moving images. Behind the Screen also introduces visitors to the history of the moving image, from nineteenth-century optical toys to the present-day impact of digital tools on film editing and post-production. Children under the age of fourteen must be accompanied by an adult of eighteen years or older. Artifacts: The exhibition incorporates approximately 1,400 artifacts from the Museum's collection of the material culture of the moving image.

Recently acquired objects on view include makeup used on the stars of Sex in the City, a mechanical prop designed by Mike Marino for a climactic scene in Black Swan, and molds and prototypes produced during the creation of a King Kong action figure. Computer-based interactive experiences: Visitors may record their own movements as a sequence of still photographs that can be printed out and made into a flipbook; create their own stop-motion animations, which they can save and email; record their voices over dialogue from a film, following the same procedure that actors use when dubbing their lines in post-production; choose sound effects to add to the images of well-known movies and television shows; add music to scenes from movies, and to experience how music affects mood and tone. Audio-visual material: Behind the Screen includes nearly four hours of audio-visual material that ranges from film clips related to the artifacts on display; projections of the earliest kinetoscope films, The Great Train Robbery, and selections from The Jazz Singer and Nanook of the North, all of which bring key moments in film history vividly to life; special videos, including The First Movies about Etienne Jules Marey and Chuck Workman's Precious Images; and a simulation of a live TV control room, taking visitors inside the room where director Bill Webb called the shots for the broadcast of a game between the New York Mets and San Diego Padres. Commissioned artworks: Artworks created especially for incorporation into Behind the Screen are Tut's Fever by Red Grooms and Lysiane Luong, a real movie theater equipped for video that seats thirty-five; TV Lounge by Jim Isermann, an environment resembling a 1960s living room; and Feral Fount by Gregory Barsamian, a stroboscopic zoetrope using 97 sculptures rotating on an armature to create a short animation.

Toward A Concrete Utopia: Architecture In Yugoslavia, 1948–1980 - The Museum of Modern ArtThrough January 13, 2019 - Manhattan

Situated between the capitalist West and the socialist East, Yugoslavia's architects responded to contradictory demands and influences, developing a postwar architecture both in line with and distinct from the design approaches seen elsewhere in Europe and beyond. The architecture that emerged—from International Style skyscrapers to Brutalist "social condensers"—is a manifestation of the radical diversity, hybridity, and idealism that characterized the Yugoslav state itself. Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980 introduces the exceptional work of socialist Yugoslavia's leading architects to an international audience for the first time, highlighting a significant yet thus-far understudied body of modernist architecture, whose forward-thinking contributions still resonate today.

Exploring the intersection between art, mathematics, science and poetry, Escher’s works have fascinated and astounded generations of artists, architects, mathematicians, musicians and designers alike. Experience the utterly captivating and mind-bending work of graphic illustrator M.C. Escher in this new exhibition featuring more than 200 original works. 

Poet Erza Pound spoke of artist Constantin Brancusi's work as providing "the master keys to the world of form." Over a career that spanned half a century, Brancusi's innovations transformed sculpture as it had been known, and influenced generations of artists to come. After moving to Paris in 1904 from his native Romania, Brancusi affected the appearance of a Romanian peasant—a long beard, work shirt, and sandals—while embedding himself in avant-garde art circles. He soon began pushing modernist sculpture to the threshold of abstraction, developing a new, simplified vocabulary of graceful crescents, gleaming ovoids, and rough-hewn blocks that often evoked rather than resembled the things named in their titles, such as Bird in Space or Fish. He put the natural properties of his materials on display, carving directly into wood and stone and polishing metal to high reflectivity. The bases for his sculptures were often built of stacked elements—wood cubes, cylindrical slices, pyramidal blocks, or cruciform stones—becoming an integral component of the work itself and hinting at the possibility of infinite rearrangement, an idea that would prove fertile in future decades.

The spectacular Disney film that captivated audiences around the world has finally made it to Broadway! Following the success of the 2013 animated movie, Frozen the Musical expands on the story of two sisters, giving more time to the characters we’ve come to love. With a book by Jennifer Lee, and music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the show has kept many members of the creative team from the film, ensuring everything on stage is faithful to the original story. Instead of being a direct copy of the film, what Frozen the Musical does is transform these animated characters into something real and tangible. It really takes the time to dig deep into the characters’ motivations, allowing their relationships to develop further.

Did you know that your gastrointestinal tract is home to about 100 trillion bacteria? That's more organisms than there are stars in the Milky Way! Our bodies are home to many trillions of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other organisms collectively called the human microbiome. In any human, microbial genes outnumber the genes in human DNA by more than 100 to one. This new perspective leads us to look at our bodies not just as individuals, but as entire ecosystems.Inside You explores the rapidly evolving science that is revolutionizing how we view human health and introduces some of the scientists who are breaking new ground in microbiome research.Inspired by the Museum's popular exhibition The Secret World Inside You, this exhibition introduces visitors to microbes that live in, on, and around all of us. Engaging graphics detail how microbes aid digestion, influence your immune system, and help fight harmful microbes. You'll find out how we acquire our microbiome and how it is shaped by the foods we eat and the environment we live in. Inside You is co-curated by Susan Perkins and Rob DeSalle, curators in the Museum's Division of Invertebrate Zoology and the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics. Inside You is proudly supported by the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson. This exhibition is made possible by the generosity of the Arthur Ross Foundation.

New Permanent Exhibit: Titanosaur - The American Museum of Natural HistoryThrough January 19, 2020 - Upper West Side

The museum adds another must-see exhibit opening on January 15, a cast of a 122-foot-long dinosaur Titanosaur that is part of a special year of dinosaur events, exhibitions, and digital offerings. Paleontologists have inferred that this dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, weighed in at around 77 tons—as much as 14 or 15 African elephants. In preparation for adding this colossal new exhibit, the museum closed the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center in September to remove the hall's current incumbent: a life-sized—but, by comparison, diminutive—fleshed-out model of a juvenile Barosaurus that has been on display since the completion of the fourth floor in June 1996. The new, much larger occupant will graze the gallery's approximately 19-foot-high ceilings and, at 122 feet (37.2 meters), is just a bit too long to fit completely into the space. Instead, its neck and head will extend out towards the elevator banks, welcoming visitors to the "dinosaur" floor.

The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) will open Connected Worlds, its exciting and groundbreaking new exhibition on environmental sustainability, on June 27, 2015. Presented in NYSCI's iconic Great Hall, Connected Worlds is a fully immersive, digitally rendered interactive experience where visitors are encouraged to explore the interconnectedness of different environments, learn about the importance of keeping systems in balance, and see how our individual and collective actions can have widespread impact. Through their gestures and movements, visitors interact with animated creatures, plants, trees and other objects, and see how human decisions affect the environment. "Connected Worlds reflects what NYSCI is all about – a playful hands-on activity, a focus on problem-solving, and deep engagement with a topic. Connected Worlds gives visitors confidence in their ability to effect change, and empowers them within a larger environment," said Margaret Honey, president and CEO of NYSCI. "This leads to passionate learners – a hallmark of the NYSCI experience." Connected Worlds features gesture-based technologies that generate and project images onto seven massive screens. Six of the screens are more than 14 feet tall and one screen, which shows a digital waterfall, is 38 feet tall. The screens show six different, but interconnected, environments – desert, mountain valley, plains, reservoir, jungle and wetlands – each with their own unique trees, plants and creatures, but sharing common resources, such as water and weather patterns. Some of the animals travel across environments for breeding or to access food. A central reservoir, which is fed by the waterfall and supplies water to the six environments, is projected on the floor, covering approximately 2,300 square feet.

THEATER Adapted by Naomi Iizuka Directed and devised by Rachel Dickstein and Ripe Time Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival "This is my 17th straight day without sleep." A Japanese housewife's mundane existence of chores and grocery shopping explodes when a haunting dream leads her to cast sleep aside, releasing her into a world of danger and the thrill of the unknown. Based on the 1994 short story by the beloved Japanese author Haruki Murakami (The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle), this hypnotic physical theater piece by Brooklyn-based, Obie Award-winning company Ripe Time follows one woman beyond the bounds of society.

DEAR EVAN HANSEN MUSICAL PRODUCTION REVIEW Dear Evan Hansen has surpassed Josh Groban as Broadway’s biggest new hit. With $1.1 million in its pockets, this musical is creating a huge buzz that is drawing ardent fans across the board. Its average ticket price of $141 remains one of the highest box office rates in its niche. This amazing hit was originally in book form and the creativity of Steven Levenson led to its seamless transition to a wave-making high school musical. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the musicals for Dear Evan Hansen. It is on track to be one of the most successful pieces of musical theater ever to originate in Washington. The plot is centered on the peculiar problem of communicating in a time where technology has made it easier to reach out to people. Evan Hansen is a friendless high school student who achieves Internet fame due to a misunderstanding he perpetuates in regards to his supposed closeness to another troubled classmate who committed suicide. The twists in the story line help to accentuate the challenges that the younger generation face in today’s world. The gripping effects of the story and the raw show of emotions make this story one of the most amazing productions to ever grace Broadway. Parents can gain more insight and understanding into their children. Children can watch and learn how challenging it is for their parents to understand them at times. Grandparents, well, they will get to view this communications conundrum from all angles and certainly gain a good chuckle along the way. This record-setting, sold-out musical has been attracting positive reviews from leading names in the industry and beyond. Peter Marks of the Washington post calls it ‘’A heart-piercing trip to the place that musical theater can sometimes take us to.’’ He believes that this musical, which was first performed on November 14, 2016, holds the ace in every range. On the other hand, Charles Isherwood of the New York Times proclaims “This is a superb musical with great heart and humor.’’ When you leave a musical with one or two great songs running through your head, it can be said to be a success. However, leaving a musical with about 10 great songs running through your head is pretty much unheard of. The power of Dear Evan Hansen has set a new height that may not be surpassed by any production for many years. This is a performance that anyone serious about the arts absolutely must see and a performance certain to draw in permanently that first time attendee to a Broadway performance.

Now on display at the New-York Historical Society is a newly acquired and conserved Picasso in the exhibition Picasso's "Le Tricorne." It is the first work by Picasso, and one with great wall power and a New York history, to enter New-York Historical's collection. Pablo Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos or Le tricorne). The ballet and curtain were commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde, Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John Richardson once called "Le Tricorne" the artist's "supreme theatrical achievement." The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set for the ballet. Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depicts a scene with a bullring and celebratory spectators. Picasso painted it as an illusionistic window in a larger curtain that functioned as a backdrop setting the scene for the ballet. At some point before 1956 Diaghilev cut it from its larger context. For more than half a century the curtain, believed to be the largest Picasso painting in the United States, has hung in the hallway of the Four Seasons Restaurant, in the landmarked Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, on Park Avenue and Fifty-second Street in New York City. Vivendi, the company that once owned the Seagram Building, gave the Picasso curtain to the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2005 as a "Gift to the City." The show positions Picasso's curtain in a dialogue with other N-YHS objects, including paintings from the European tradition that provide background to the artist's work as well as to the traditions against which the revolutionary artist rebelled. Other thematic threads pivot around dance subjects and explore roughly contemporary American paintings, sculpture, posters, and watercolors. Among the works included will be examples by William Adolphe Bouguereau, Will H. Bradley, Philippe de Champaigne, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Childe Hassam, Malvina Hoffman, Ricardo de Madrazo y Garreta, Elie Nadelman, Edward Penfield, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and Adriaen van Utrecht.
