The Collegiate Chorale presents: Symphony No. 7 "Toltec" and Oceana - Carnegie Hall
February 27, 2013 - New York

The Collegiate Chorale announces the New York Premieres of two works by major composers: Symphony No. 7 “Toltec” by Philip Glass and Oceana by Osvaldo Golijov, featuring international jazz vocalist Biella Da Costa and the American Symphony Orchestra. The Collegiate Chorale announces the New York Premieres of two works by major composers: Symphony No. 7 “Toltec” by Philip Glass and Oceana by Osvaldo Golijov, featuring international jazz vocalist Biella Da Costa and the American Symphony Orchestra on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 7pm at Carnegie Hall, 881 7th Avenue, NYC. The Collegiate Chorale’s Music Director James Bagwell will conduct. Tickets are $20-115 and are available at www.carnegiehall.org. In this pairing of contemporary choral compositions by Osvaldo Golijov and Philip Glass, The Chorale turns its attention towards Latin America with the New York premieres of Symphony No. 7 “Toltec” and Oceana. Composed in 2004, Symphony No. 7 – A Toltec Symphony is Philip Glass’s personal homage to the ancient traditions and beliefs of the peoples of Mesoamerica, circa 700-1100 BCE. Although often cited for their accomplishments in mathematics, calendar making, building and architecture, Glass is concerned with Toltec personal spiritual development: “The Toltecs emphasized the relationship with the forces of the natural world (the sun, earth, water, fire and wind) in developing their own wisdom traditions.” In his symphony, scored for full orchestra and large chorus, Glass does not use any of his trademark electric keyboard sounds, but instead explores musical textures and phrases within the realm of a strictly acoustic, natural world. In using pure, natural acoustic instruments, he gets closer spiritually to the natural world the Toltec culture worships. This musical exploration results in extended yet constantly changing harmonies, textures, and rhythms. Commissioned by the Oregon Bach Festival in 1996, Golijov wrote Oceana in the spirit of a Bach cantata but with a Latin American musical style that features a jazz/pop vocalist, percussion, and guitars. Set to the poetry of Pablo Neruda, Oceana, in Golijov’s words, is the “transmutation of passion into geometry”. He describes his work such that “water and longing, light and hope, the immensity of South America's nature and pain, are here transmuted into pure musical symbols, which nevertheless should be more liquid than the sea and deeper than the yearning that they represent.” Golijov juxtaposes rolling, cascading arcs of sound (giant rain sticks in the percussion, choral and orchestral writing that sweeps forward and back in extended phrases) and the unique sound of Brazilian jazz with the technical precision of classical oratorio and symphonic structure. The result is an astounding and exciting rush of sound, drama and emotion; waves of text overlapping waves of sound; jazz merging with classical; and cinematic cascades of texture upon texture. Popular Venezuelan Jazz vocalist and Golijov specialist Biella Da Costa joins The Chorale in the performance of this powerful musical work. “The Chorale has been privileged to work with Philip Glass several times in the past few years, and so it is with great pleasure that we present the NY premiere of his Toltec Symphony,” said James Bagwell, Music Director of The Collegiate Chorale. “Philip wrote this work in 2005, but it has not been heard in New York – we want to rectify that.” He continued, “Osvaldo Golijov is a wonderful and deservedly celebrated composer of today. His music is evocative, powerful, and sensual; and an exciting, deeply satisfying amalgam of the musical styles of his own experience – Argentinian, Latin, Israeli, Hebrew, American, classical, and jazz. We are thrilled to be able to present the NY premiere of his beautiful work, Oceana.”

The Polar Bear on Thin Ice - Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History
February 28, 2013 - New Haven

The snow-white, powerful and dangerous polar bear is the very symbol of the Arctic. With its circumpolar range, Nanook has been hunted and revered by aboriginal people for as long as they have shared this icy habitat. Europeans first encountered these bears when they ventured northward in search of the elusive Northwest and Northeast Passages and found their paths blocked by impenetrable rafts of ice—the very ice that polar bears inhabit so comfortably. Today, polar bears are part of our culture: they are featured in zoos and circuses, and appear in advertising, feature films and innumerable nature programs. Yet far from the Arctic greenhouse gases spewed into the atmosphere are warming the land and the oceans, and warming oceans mean melting ice. Celebrated author, painter and conservationist Richard Ellis will discuss why its disappearance spells doom for the bears. Book signing to follow.

As one of Britain's most celebrated contemporary artists, Tracey Emin's moving series of neonworks, I Promise To Love You, is comprised of six written love messages animated especially for the “Midnight Moment.” In this unique moving image, the glowing words—made of neon lights—slowly spell themselves out, as if being written by a ghost or an invisible presence. The gentle electric pulsing of the lettering gradually builds into a powerful potent red, leaving the viewer in no doubt about the power of love. Times Square, famous for its neon lighting displays, is the perfect venue for the premiere for Emin’s animation. The “Midnight Moment” is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square every night.

Every show begins at 11:57pm with a "countdown" that signals the start of the 3 minute nightly presentation. Content changes monthly; selected works are announced in the weeks preceding the start of a new show as are the exact signs participating in that month's selection.

Charlene Kaye, Alexz Johnson, Jay Stolar & Misty Boyce, Caroline Pennell - Highline Ballroom
February 28, 2013 - New York

With a sound that fuses the buoyant pop of Robyn and Niki & the Dove, the vintage soul of Prince, and the sentimentality of Rufus Wainwright, Charlene Kaye is a force whose music is at once classic and contemporary, of the times yet unmistakably timeless. With a rapidly growing fan base and more touring on the horizon, Kaye shows no signs of slowing down, picking up steam even before she leaves the ground. Alexz Johnson is never quite what you'd think: she is always, instead, a surprise. While she writes intimate, down-to-earth lyrics, they're delivered with a larger-than-life, crystalline voice. Currently Alexz is about to independently release the Skipping Stone EP, a five-song taste of the new music she has been writing in LA and Nashville, where she meets up to collaborate and record with singer-songwriter Jimmy Robbins. Jay Stolar is a soul singer with an arsenal of heart gripping songs. His live performances hark back to the early days of R&B, when it was an artist's job to connect to every person in the room. He is a deeply influential player in the New York City music scene. In 2012 Jay ran a 24 week residency at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, showcased at both SXSW and CMJ, toured nationally with singer-songwriter Charlene Kaye, placed his song "Like You Do" on The CW Network's 90210, and completed production on his debut album. A New Mexico native, Boyce began her career as the keyboardist for The Naked Brothers Band, appearing with them on The View and the Today Show. She has also accompanied Tim Williams on tour and at performances at SXSW and Sundance Film Festival, and Ingrid Michaelson at her Holiday Hop and on the Kelly Ripa show. After studying jazz piano at the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, Boyce moved to New York to pursue her own sound. With influences ranging from Tori Amos to Radiohead to Miles Davis, Boyce writes all of her own music.

Dialogue with Three Chords presents 'The Rought and Sweet Quartet' - Mr. Dennehy's
February 28, 2013 - New York

Dialogue with Three Chords presents “The Rough and Sweet Quartet” from playwright Stephen Gracia to launch their 2013 season of independent theatre. “The Rough and Sweet Quartet” includes four new plays from Gracia, all directed by Michael LoPorto. The plays are “about love, lust, transformation, drinks with the devil, and the stories we tell each other” says Gracia. The performance is on February 28 at 8pm downstairs at Mr. Dennehy’s pub on 63 Carmine Street in Manhattan. Admission is free with $3 suggested donation. “The Rough and Sweet Quartet,” Gracia explains, consists of “four new plays exploring strange beauty, dysfunction, and catharsis.” The show also features characters that fans of Dialogue with Three Chords (D3C) will recognize: “’The Rough and Sweet Quartet’ finds a collection of familiar D3C characters settling in for last call,” notes Gracia, “The previous year and a half has featured a lot of stories of abuse, violence, and heartbreak, and I wanted to bring specific characters back for a bit of booze and some hope, for once.” “The Rough and Sweet Quartet” consists of four complimentary plays: ‘Howling in the Beerlight,’ ‘A Stone that Breaks all Hearts,’ ‘No True Places,’ and ‘All Your favorite Poems were about Birds.’ The show is presented as a tongue-in-cheek post Valentines Day celebration, featuring themes of love, transformation, heartbreak, and finding solace in the embrace and compassion of others. More information on Dialogue with Three Chords can be found at: http://stephengracia.org. ‘Howling in the Beerlight’ features Kendra Leigh Landon as Addison and Christina Pitter as Cheryl. ‘A Stone That Breaks All Hearts’ features Sean Meehan as Drew and Jenny West as Ashley. ‘No True Places’ features Judy W. Chen as Barbara and Anthony Marion as Hunter. ‘All Your Favorite Poems Were About Birds’ features Larry Greenbush as Joshua. Dialogue with Three Chords was founded in 2011 by Stephen Gracia and Michael LoPorto and applies the do-it-yourself philosophy of punk to the stage and features short plays and live music. Their work has also been produced at Sargent Theatre, Makor Theater, DUMBO Theatre Exchange, Levenson Hall at Brooklyn College, and the Theaters at 45 Bleecker.

'As You Like It' - The New Victory Theater
March 01, 2013 - Midtown

A great introduction for children who may be unfamiliar with Shakespeare's works, this play is lighthearted and fun, concluding with the message that all humans need love. Performed by New York's The Acting Company and directed by Pig Iron Theatre Company's Dan Rothenberg, the inspiration behind this particular performance comes from the popular children's book "Where The Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. Here's more information from the press release: New York's The Acting Company, a TONY Honors Recipient for Excellence in Theater, brings Shakespeare's lushly lighthearted comedy 'As You Like It' to The New Victory Theater as part of their 40th anniversary season. Directed by Pig Iron Theatre Company's Dan Rothenberg, 'As You Like It' by The Acting Company will make its New York Premiere at The New Victory Theater, 209 West 42nd Street, from March 1-10, 2013. The Acting Company debuted 'As You Like It' at the Guthrie Theater's Dowling Studio from January 12 ? February 3; The Acting Company last performed at The New Victory Theater in 2009 with a staging of Henry V directed by Davis McCallum. For this frolicsome, Jazz Age-styled Shakespearean saga, director Dan Rothenberg counts Maurice Sendak's seminal 1963 children's book, "Where the Wild Things Are," among his inspirations. "Rosalind and her boyfriend Orlando's flight of fancy into exile allows them to visit their wild side. They discover that the Forest of Arden is rendered by a child: messy, whimsical, full of animals personified and humans that are beastly," says Rothenberg. "In Shakespeare's "As You Like It," characters explore various forms of the stages of life ? the natural and the man-made, the selfish and the generous, the frightening and embracing ? reminding us that we are all simply mammals that require the greatest healing of all: love," he adds. Dan Rothenberg's recent New York presentations include Zero Cost House (Under the Radar 2013); Annihilation Point (Berserker Residents, Abrons Art Center 2011) and Enjoy (Play Company, 59E59 2010). As a founding member and co-artistic director of Philadelphia's Pig Iron Theatre Company, he directed the OBIE Award-winning Chekhov Lizardbrain (2007) and Hell Meets Henry Halfway (2004); in addition to many of the company's other productions, including Twelfth Night, or What You Will (2011); Cankerblossom (2010); and Sweet By-and-By (2008). Also joining from Pig Iron are Michael Kiley for Music and Sound Design, Sarah Sanford for Choreography and Matt Saunders for Scenic Design. The remaining creative team includes Michael Chybowski for Lighting Design, Felix Ivanoff for Fight Direction, Terese Wadden for Costume Design and Andrew Wade for Voice and Speech. Devin Brain serves as Staff Repertory Director, Gina Noele Odierno is the Production Stage Manager, and Brandon Curtis is the Assistant Stage Manager. The production features University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater B.F.A. Actor Training Program graduates Megan Bartle (Celia), Buddy Haardt (Oliver), Kelsey Landon (Phoebe), Michael McDonald (Silvius/Le Beau), Noah Putterman (Amiens/William) and Elizabeth Stahlmann (Rosalind). The cast also includes A Guthrie Experience for Actors in Training alumnus Jasmine Bracey (Audrey). Returning with The Acting Company are Ray Chapman (Duke Frederick/Sir Archibald Martext), Joseph Midyett (Orlando) and Chris Thorn (Jacques). The cast is completed by Christopher Michael McFarland (Tourstone), Joseph Tisa (Adam/Corin) and Yaegel T. Welch (Duke Senior/Charles the Wrestler).

The company has participated in creative residencies at the Public Theater, Dance Theatre Workshop, La Jolla Playhouse, Drexel University, Playmakers Rep, Swarthmore College, and at Toni Morrison's Atelier Program at Princeton University. In 2010, Dan directed the highly critically acclaimed English-language premiere of Toshiki Okada's Enjoy for Play Company in New York ("?pitch-perfect direction?"). With Pig Iron, Dan co-directed Shut Eye with legendary theater director Joseph Chaikin and in 2005, he directed Pay Up, a 30-person site-specific installation about buying and selling for the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival; it was later presented at Montclair State University.

Yarn, Kalob Griffin Band support - Highline Ballroom
March 01, 2013 - New York

Brooklyn-based Americana/Alt-Country band Yarn's sound owes as much to Gram Parsons and Earl Scruggs as to Jerry Garcia and Exile On Main Street-era Rolling Stones. Following in a fine tradition that includes forward thinking roots bands like The Flying Burrito Brothers and New Riders of The Purple Sage, Yarn weaves roots music idioms into a fresh sound that turns on hipsters and fans of country music alike, with technically impressive song-crafting and universal tales from the road of life. On Yarn's latest release, Leftovers, Volume 1 you'll hear vintage tracks recorded during the band's first studio sessions back in 2006 and 2007. With this retro-collection, listeners witness the poignant emotion and emotive story-telling that has come to define the sextet's sound, which straddles the genres of Americana and alt-country, with a dash of jam-band. Their self-titled debut record reached No. 14 on the AMA and R&R Radio Charts, and ranked No. 79 on the AMA's Top 100 Albums of 2007. Yarn's 2008 follow-up, Empty Pockets, spent months in the top 5 on the AMA chart and was honored with eight first round 2009 Grammy nominations in several categories. Yarn's third release, Come on In, held its own as the #25 record on the top 100 Americana chart of 2010. Yarn is touring intensively and their impressive live shows continue to build the buzz and the fan base fueled by their first four records.

Ed Kowalczyk (Former Lead Singer of Live) - City Winery
March 01, 2013 - New York

Ed Kowalczyk, widely known as the lead-singer/songwriter/guitarist of the band LIVE, has built an impressive résumé with his bandmates that includes eight full-length albums that have reached gold and platinum status in 9 countries with total album sales exceeding 20 million, and nine Top 10 radio hits such as "Lightning Crashes", "I Alone", "Selling The Drama" and "Heaven". Live has been one of the most successful and enduring alternative rock bands of the 1990s and 2000s. One of the main things that have enabled Live to maintain a devoted fan base is the substantial and durable nature of their lyrics, which have often reflected Kowalczyk's personal and spiritual concerns. "My approach as a songwriter is to write songs that are not finite and will resonate with listeners for a really long time," Kowalczyk asserts. "Sixteen years after our first album, Mental Jewelry, I am still able to get something out of songs Live recorded in the early 1990s--and I think that one of the reasons why we have had so many fans for so long is that our fans are also continuing to find nuances in the songs." Ed released his first solo album, Alive, in 2010, which spawned the hit single "Grace", and he is also the creator/producer of the acoustic tour, Open Wings Broken Strings. Ed is launching a new acoustic show called, I Alone - Acoustic in 2012 and is working on a new album due out in early 2013.

Much Ado About Nothing - 133rd Street Arts Center
Through March 02, 2013 - New York

Wednesday & Thursday @ 7:30pm Friday & Saturday @ 8pm Saturday @ 3pm / Sundays @ 5pm $20 discounted tickets are available through January 31st for select performances. Love. War. Conspiracy. Sex. Betrayal. Death. Could all these things truly amount to Nothing? In Shakespeare’s beloved comedy Much Ado About Nothing, Don Pedro and his men return victoriously from war to the house of Leonato, Governor of Messina. Proven in battle, Claudio proposes to Leonato's dutiful daughter Hero, to the dismay of his comrade, Benedick, who wittily battles with the Lady Beatrice on the demerits of love. The stage is set for merry conflict as those who jest at love are caught in a hilarious conspiracy to make them fall in love. Meanwhile a sinister plot brews to unmake Claudio and Hero's nuptials, setting in motion a series of events that challenge loyalties, test character, and examine the fickleness of life and love. Incorporating a vibrant and diverse cast, Snapped Productions deconstructs outdated female archetypes, challenges masculine stereotypes, and advances the classic ideas about male/female relationships, seen here through a modern lens. Much Ado About Nothing is exactly that—the whimsy of human beings taking what should be simple – love – and making it absurdly (and often times, laughably) complex. Gregory Couba directs a cast of 18 including Harpreet Chaggar, Jon Dalin, Jeffrey Delano Davis, Ratnesh Dubey, Ann Gulian, Matt Kelley, Mary-Rose Mack, Norihito Moriya, Keith R. Oliver, Al-nisa Petty, Robby Ramos, Donny Repsher, Jon Adam Ross, Gonçalo Ruivo, Caleb Schaaf, Peter Van Derick, Gary Warchola and Tina Ward.

Jason Aldean - Madison Square Garden
March 02, 2013 - New York

Aldean has consistently forged new directions since he rose to national prominence with his 2006 debut, "Hicktown." That song's power chords -- and his penchant for throwing a Guns N' Roses medley into his early concerts -- demonstrated his willingness to challenge the accepted boundaries of the country genre. Some of his subsequent hits -- particularly the farm-themed "Amarillo Sky," the pleading ballad "The Truth" and the million-selling sing-along "Big Green Tractor" -- cemented his country cred, in turn allowing him even more leeway for experimentation. "She's Country" adopted an in-your-face, AC/DC vibe. "Dirt Road Anthem" introduced Southern rap into mainstream country. And the Clarkson duet, "Don't You Wanna Stay," added a pop sheen to his career that hadn't been obvious before.

'As You Like It' - The New Victory Theater
March 02, 2013 - Midtown

A great introduction for children who may be unfamiliar with Shakespeare's works, this play is lighthearted and fun, concluding with the message that all humans need love. Performed by New York's The Acting Company and directed by Pig Iron Theatre Company's Dan Rothenberg, the inspiration behind this particular performance comes from the popular children's book "Where The Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. Here's more information from the press release: New York's The Acting Company, a TONY Honors Recipient for Excellence in Theater, brings Shakespeare's lushly lighthearted comedy 'As You Like It' to The New Victory Theater as part of their 40th anniversary season. Directed by Pig Iron Theatre Company's Dan Rothenberg, 'As You Like It' by The Acting Company will make its New York Premiere at The New Victory Theater, 209 West 42nd Street, from March 1-10, 2013. The Acting Company debuted 'As You Like It' at the Guthrie Theater's Dowling Studio from January 12 ? February 3; The Acting Company last performed at The New Victory Theater in 2009 with a staging of Henry V directed by Davis McCallum. For this frolicsome, Jazz Age-styled Shakespearean saga, director Dan Rothenberg counts Maurice Sendak's seminal 1963 children's book, "Where the Wild Things Are," among his inspirations. "Rosalind and her boyfriend Orlando's flight of fancy into exile allows them to visit their wild side. They discover that the Forest of Arden is rendered by a child: messy, whimsical, full of animals personified and humans that are beastly," says Rothenberg. "In Shakespeare's "As You Like It," characters explore various forms of the stages of life ? the natural and the man-made, the selfish and the generous, the frightening and embracing ? reminding us that we are all simply mammals that require the greatest healing of all: love," he adds. Dan Rothenberg's recent New York presentations include Zero Cost House (Under the Radar 2013); Annihilation Point (Berserker Residents, Abrons Art Center 2011) and Enjoy (Play Company, 59E59 2010). As a founding member and co-artistic director of Philadelphia's Pig Iron Theatre Company, he directed the OBIE Award-winning Chekhov Lizardbrain (2007) and Hell Meets Henry Halfway (2004); in addition to many of the company's other productions, including Twelfth Night, or What You Will (2011); Cankerblossom (2010); and Sweet By-and-By (2008). Also joining from Pig Iron are Michael Kiley for Music and Sound Design, Sarah Sanford for Choreography and Matt Saunders for Scenic Design. The remaining creative team includes Michael Chybowski for Lighting Design, Felix Ivanoff for Fight Direction, Terese Wadden for Costume Design and Andrew Wade for Voice and Speech. Devin Brain serves as Staff Repertory Director, Gina Noele Odierno is the Production Stage Manager, and Brandon Curtis is the Assistant Stage Manager. The production features University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater B.F.A. Actor Training Program graduates Megan Bartle (Celia), Buddy Haardt (Oliver), Kelsey Landon (Phoebe), Michael McDonald (Silvius/Le Beau), Noah Putterman (Amiens/William) and Elizabeth Stahlmann (Rosalind). The cast also includes A Guthrie Experience for Actors in Training alumnus Jasmine Bracey (Audrey). Returning with The Acting Company are Ray Chapman (Duke Frederick/Sir Archibald Martext), Joseph Midyett (Orlando) and Chris Thorn (Jacques). The cast is completed by Christopher Michael McFarland (Tourstone), Joseph Tisa (Adam/Corin) and Yaegel T. Welch (Duke Senior/Charles the Wrestler). General Ticket Information Tickets for As You Like It at The New Victory Theater (209 West 42nd Street) cost $25, $18, $12 and $9 for Members and $38, $28, $18 and $14 for Non-members based on seat locations.

About Dan Rothenberg Dan Rothenberg is a Philadelphia-based director and creator of experimental performance. A founding member and co-artistic director of the Pig Iron Theatre Company, Dan has directed almost all of Pig Iron's original performance works, including Poet in New York, Gentleman Volunteers, Love Unpunished, Isabella, The Lucia Joyce Cabaret, and the OBIE Award-winning productions Chekhov Lizardbrain and Hell Meets Henry Halfway.

The company has participated in creative residencies at the Public Theater, Dance Theatre Workshop, La Jolla Playhouse, Drexel University, Playmakers Rep, Swarthmore College, and at Toni Morrison's Atelier Program at Princeton University. In 2010, Dan directed the highly critically acclaimed English-language premiere of Toshiki Okada's Enjoy for Play Company in New York ("?pitch-perfect direction?"). With Pig Iron, Dan co-directed Shut Eye with legendary theater director Joseph Chaikin and in 2005, he directed Pay Up, a 30-person site-specific installation about buying and selling for the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival; it was later presented at Montclair State University.

Special Lecture: Adders' Mouths and Ladies' Tresses: The Colorful World of Native Orchids - The New York Botanical Garden
March 02, 2013 - Bronx

The Torrey Botanical Society presents David Taft, Chair of Conservation Committee of the Greater New York Orchid Society, and Supervisor of National Park Service Gateway National Recreation Area, as speaker at its first talk of the year. Find out what makes an orchid an orchid, what the "orchid mystique" is all about, and why we should care about the preservation of plants and wild spaces in and near our cities. Orchids are stand-outs even in the best habitats, and it still surprises some that they are neither exclusively tropical nor tender hothouse darlings. In fact, many can be found growing throughout our temperate, heavily developed northeast. It is easy to dismiss the increasingly fragmented, troubled, pockets of woodlands, wetlands, and other natural habitats which persist even in our most urbanized areas, but orchids and other botanical riches can still be found in many. Mr. Taft's interest in native orchids has lured him into beautiful, outlandish, terribly disturbed, and sometimes simply ridiculous "wild spaces" throughout the northeast--some of which actually do occasionally harbor orchids. Join him in this refreshing survey of our native orchid species.

Taconic Opera to Premiere a New Oratorio, Enoch - Ossining United Methodist Church
Through March 03, 2013 - Ossining

Currently in its 15th season and the recipient of the Westchester County 2012 Arts Organization of the Year Award, Taconic Opera will be performing the world premiere performance and professional recording of the oratorio "Enoch" by the company's General and Artistic Director, Dan Montez. While both operas and oratorios are based on stories, operas deal more with history and mythology with a little bit of romance, deception and murder thrown in; oratorios most often contain sacred topics and the majority are based on biblical characters. While both musical forms include an orchestra, soloists and a chorus, opera is most often presented as musical theater, while oratorios are normally presented as concerts with no costumes, props or interactions between the characters. Dan Montez's "Enoch" is based on the life of the Old Testament prophet, Enoch, the father of Methuselah, who mysteriously disappeared from the Book of Genesis without explanation. Over 100 chapters of the Book of Enoch, lost for almost 2000 years, were discovered recently and translated from Hebrew, Aramaic and Ethiopian. Christian and Jewish scholars were surprised to find quotes from the Book of Enoch as many as 128 times in the Old Testament, more than any other book, and consider it to be scripture. The story is the antithesis of the Sodom story, inasmuch as a city becomes so righteous that is taken up into heaven. Enoch is called as the first scribe of heaven and first author of scripture. With a little help from Montez, the newly-discovered Enoch will now have his very own oratorio. The work will feature the Taconic Opera chorus, professional lead singers and full orchestra. Performances will be conducted under the baton of Dan Montez himself, who is delighted to debut the second of his oratorical compositions in Westchester County. "Enoch" will be sung in English and its musical influences include Faure, Ravel, and Poulenc. Those who come to the world premiere of the piece will have the opportunity to take part in the making of music history. The company will be presenting two performances of the oratorio in two locations: Saturday, March 2, 2013, at 7:30pm at the Ossining United Methodist Church, 1 Emwilton Place/corner of Route 9, Ossining, NY; and Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 3pm at the White Plains Presbyterian Church, 39 N. Broadway, White Plains, NY. Tickets can be purchased in advance online at taconicopera.org or by calling Taconic Opera's toll-free number 1-855-886-7372.

Wolfgang Laib - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through March 11, 2013 - Midtown

Wolfgang Laib's Pollen from Hazelnut will inhabit the Museum's Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, infusing the space with a yellow luminosity. Laib perceives the Marron Atrium as the Museum's inner sanctum, its womb, and has created this work especially for the site. It will be the artist's largest pollen installation to date, measuring approximately 18 x 21 feet. The hazelnut pollen that will be used in MoMA's installation has been collected by Laib from the natural environment around his home and studio, in a small village in southern Germany, since the mid-1990s. Since the mid-1970s, Laib (German, b. 1950) has been producing sculptures and installations marked by a serene presence and a reductive beauty. These works are often made from one or a combination of two materials, accumulated from natural elements -- such as milk, marble, pollen, rice, and beeswax -- which have been selected for their purity and symbolic associations. Forging a singular path for more than 30 years, Laib amplifies the intrinsic materials and processes found in nature. Laib has stated that "pollen is the potential beginning of the life of the plant. It is as simple, as beautiful, and as complex as this. And of course it has so many meanings. I think everybody who lives knows that pollen is important."

Through March 11, 2013 - Long Island City

Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles 1960–1980 chronicles the vital legacy of the African American arts community in Los Angeles, examining a pioneering group of black artists whose work and connections with other artists of varied ethnic backgrounds helped shape the creative output of Southern California. The exhibition presents approximately 140 works by thirty-two artists active during this historical period, exploring the rising strength of the black community in Los Angeles as well as the increasing political, social, and economic power of African Americans across the nation. Several prominent black artists began their careers in the Los Angeles area, including Melvin Edwards, David Hammons, Maren Hassinger, Senga Nengudi, John Outterbridge, Noah Purifoy, and Betye Saar. Their influence, like that of all of the artists in the exhibition, goes beyond their immediate creative circles and the geography of Los Angeles and is critical to a more complete and dynamic understanding of twentieth-century American Art.

Matisse: In Search of True Painting - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through March 17, 2013 - New York

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was one of the most acclaimed artists working in France during the first half of the twentieth century. The critic Clement Greenberg, writing in The Nation in 1949, called him a "self-assured master who can no more help painting well than breathing." Unbeknownst to many, painting had rarely come easily to Matisse. Throughout his career, he questioned, repainted, and reevaluated his work. He used his completed canvases as tools, repeating compositions in order to compare effects, gauge his progress, and, as he put it, "push further and deeper into true painting." While this manner of working with pairs, trios, and series is certainly not unique to Matisse, his need to progress methodically from one painting to the next is striking. Matisse: In Search of True Painting presents this particular aspect of Matisse's painting process by showcasing forty-nine vibrantly colored canvases. For Matisse, the process of creation was not simply a means to an end but a dimension of his art that was as important as the finished canvas.

Sinister Pop - Whitney Museum of American Art
Through March 31, 2013 - New York

Sinister Pop presents an inventive take on the Museum's rich and diverse holdings of Pop art from the movement's inception in the early 1960s through its aftershocks a decade later. Although Pop art often calls to mind a celebration of postwar consumer culture, this exhibition focuses on Pop's darker side, as it distorts and critiques the American dream. Themes of exaggerated consumption, film noir and the depiction of women in art, the dystopic American landscape, and the intersection of popular culture and politics, are explored through works by acknowledged masters such as Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenburg, Ed Ruscha, and Andy Warhol, as well as by many artists not traditionally associated with Pop whose art may be understood within its wider field of reference. These include William Eggleston, Peter Saul, Christina Ramberg, and Vija Celmins, among others.

Through March 31, 2013 - New York

Designing Tomorrow: America's World's Fairs of the 1930s showcases six Depression-era expositions that brought visions of a brighter future to tens of millions of Americans. As many Americans still waited on bread lines, fairs in Chicago (1933/34), San Diego (1935/36), Dallas (1936), Cleveland (1936/37), San Francisco (1939/40), and New York (1939/40) foretold much of what would become commonplace in postwar America--from highways and the spread of suburbia to modernist skyscrapers and products such as electric toasters, nylon stockings, and television. The fairs looked forward to an era of prosperity, when ingenuity and innovation would transform not only American cities but also the everyday lives of American citizens.

DECENTER: An Exhibition on the Centenary of the 1913 Armory Show - Abrons Arts Center
Through April 07, 2013 - New York

In the 1913 Armory Show, the Association of American Painters and Sculptors endeavored to showcase the "New Spirit" of modern art. On its 100th anniversary, we will celebrate the Cubist paintings and sculptures in its galleries with an exhibition featuring 27 contemporary artists. Their artworks explore changes in perception precipitated by our digital age, and closely parallel the cubist vernacular of fragmentation, non-linearity, simultaneity, and decenteredness. Our exhibition poses the question "What is the legacy of Cubism in the hundred years since the Armory Show's radical display of modern European and American art, and especially, how has this become relevant again in our digital age?" The show will exhibit a core group of artworks in the gallery, and also feature a corresponding iInternet component of digital works in an online gallery.

Through April 07, 2013 - New York

Sing, Sign & Play Classes - Cadenza Music Center
Through April 10, 2013 - Flushing

Enhance your baby's communication skills and education via signing. Jacqueline Ciaramella, a former Bayside NYC school teacher will conduct this sign language course. Here is what the research has to say about signing with babies & toddlers: My child can hear...WHY SHOULD I SIGN??? Over 25 years of scientific research shows that hearing babies who sign typically have the following benefits: Earlier communication: babies can produce signs as early as 6 months old--long before their ability to speak develops. • Fewer Temper-tantrums • Less Frustration • Improved confidence • Better adjusted • Average between 8 and 13 point Higher IQ • Larger vocabulary • Tend to speak and read early • Supports Spelling • It can have amazing results for children with speech or communication challenges, as well as other special needs • Helps children link symbols (signs) with concepts (meaning) and the spoken word • Provides another mode of learning (tactile and kinesthetic) • Increased bonding (signing is face-to-face communication) • Clarifies speech (does "Ba" mean baby? bottle? ball? bug? Banana?) • Exposure to a second language: ASL, and an easy bridge to learn other spoken languages • Being able to communicate with your child when verbal communication is difficult or frowned on (either quiet places or noisy places...or from a distance on the playground) • Easier and earlier diagnosis of health problems. One pre-verbal baby kept signing “thirsty” no matter how much she drank. Testing showed that she was diabetic, which they wouldn’t have known until she was very sick had it not been for signing! • Child can express him/herself when too shy or embarrassed to speak • Opportunity to befriend children who use sign to communicate • Provides and alternative means of communication when speech may be difficult, for example, after a tonsillectomy, laryngitis, etc. • Feels like play Classes will meet one hour a week for 8 weeks.

Through April 13, 2013 - New York

Margaret Bowland's second New York solo exhibition of psychologically provocative paintings. Bowland draws upon legendary American novelist and social critic James Baldwin's rallying cry that, "Artists are here to disturb the peace," by creating a very personal series of works which questions societal expectations about gender, race and beauty. The majority of the works focus on JJ, Bowland's muse for the past five years. Now eleven years old and on the verge of adolescence, she prepares to face the challenges of adulthood. Upon her tiny frame, weighty universal issues are placed -- questions of identity, pressures of conformity, and ultimately a quest for acceptance.

Magnificent Trees of The New York Botanical Garden - New York Botanical Garden
Through April 14, 2013 - Bronx

Larry Lederman, landscape photographer and member of NYBG's Board of Advisors, has spent years walking the garden grounds to observe and photograph trees and vistas in all seasons and at all times of day. Lush images featuring their diversity and visual impact are on view in the gallery space. The New York Botanical Garden is home to more than 30,000 trees, some in woodland, some in groves, and some standing in solitary majesty. Magnificent Trees is lavishly illustrated with photographs by Larry Lederman and accompanied by descriptions by Todd A. Forrest, Arthur Ross vice president for horticulture and living collections at the garden. An authority on the diverse species present across the 250-acre landscape, Forrest details their fascinating histories -- from their vital role in Native American life and culture to their function in neutral territory during the Revolutionary War. Lederman captures their grandeur in hundreds of stunning images and portrays their diversity with photographs that reveal the trees in myriad fascinating perspectives: in landscape views that convey the garden's genius loci; portraits illustrating the architecture and profound visual impact of select trees; remarkable details of flowers, fruit, leaves, and bark; and impressionistic images, abstract in character yet beautiful in composition.

In 1912, in several European cities, a handful of artists -- Vasily Kandinsky, Frantisek Kupka, Francis Picabia, and Robert Delaunay -- presented the first abstract pictures to the public. Inventing Abstraction, 1910-25 celebrates the centennial of this bold new type of artwork, tracing the development of abstraction as it moved through a network of modern artists, from Marsden Hartley and Marcel Duchamp to Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich, sweeping across nations and across media. The exhibition brings together many of the most influential works in abstraction's early history and covers a wide range of artistic production, including paintings, drawings, books, sculptures, films, photographs, sound poems, atonal music, and non-narrative dance, to draw a cross-media portrait of these watershed years.

Kandinsky 1911-1913 - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through April 17, 2013 - New York

Perhaps more than any other 20th-century painter, Vasily Kandinsky (b. 1866, Moscow; d. 1944, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France) has been closely linked to the history of the Guggenheim Museum. Hilla Rebay--artist, art advisor, and the museum's first director--promoted nonobjective painting above all other forms of abstraction. She was particularly inspired by the work and writing of Kandinsky, a pioneer of abstraction, who believed that the task of the painter was to convey his own inner world, rather than imitate the natural world. The museum's holdings have grown to include more than 150 works by Kandinsky, and focused exhibitions of his works are presented in the Kandinsky Gallery on Annex Level 3. The current installation, Kandinsky 1911-1913, highlights paintings completed at the moment the artist made great strides toward complete abstraction and published his aesthetic treatise, On the Spiritual in Art (1911, though dated 1912). Also featured are paintings by Robert Delaunay and Franz Marc that were exhibited alongside the work of Kandinsky and others in the landmark 1912 Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) exhibition held at the Moderne Galerie Heinrich Thannhauser in Munich.

The Shaping of New Visions: Photography, Film, Photobook - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through April 21, 2013 - Midtown

This exhibition, covering the period from 1910 to today, offers a critical reassessment of photography's role in the avant-garde and neo-avant-garde movements -- with a special emphasis on the medium's relation to Dada, Bauhaus, Surrealism, Constructivism, New Objectivity, Conceptual, and Post-Conceptual art -- and in the development of contemporary artistic practices. The shaping of what came to be known as "New Vision" photography bore the obvious influence of "lens-based" and "time-based" works. El Lissitzky best summarized its ethos: "The new world will not need little pictures," he wrote in The Conquest of Art (1922). "If it needs a mirror, it has the photograph and the cinema." Bringing together over 250 works from MoMA's collection, the exhibition features major projects by Man Ray, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Germaine Krull, Gerhard Ruhm, Helen Levitt, Daido Moriyama, Robert Heinecken, Ed Ruscha, Martha Rosler, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Philip-Lorca DiCorcia, and Walid Raad, among others. Photographic history is presented as a multivalent history of distinct "new visions," rooted in unconventional and innovative exercises that range from photograms and photomontages to experimental films and photobooks.

Through April 21, 2013 - New York

The Guggenheim's recent acquisition of 20 works from a major series of pin drawings from 1975 to 1977 serves as a fulcrum for the New York presentation, which is conceived in close collaboration with the artist.

Assembled by the New York connoisseur Wheelock Whitney between 1972 and 2000, this collection reveals a rich tradition of painting out of doors nearly a century before Impressionism, thus amplifying the role of the natural world as a source of inspiration to artists on the cusp of the modern epoch.

Raw/Cooked: Marela Zacarias - Brooklyn Museum
Through April 28, 2013 - Brooklyn

The seventh exhibition in the Raw/Cooked series, titled Supple Beat, presents the work of Gowanus-based artist Marela Zacarias. Recommended by Ramirez Jonas, Zacarias has created four site-specific sculptural works inspired by the Williamsburg Murals, uniting her interests in abstract forms, the history of objects, and urban renewal. Her large-scale pieces appear to be climbing the walls of the Museum's first-floor lobby and Great Hall, interacting with the architecture as if they were murals come to life. Zacarias draws on the concept of resilience implied by the Williamsburg Murals and explores the idea of bouncing back from adversity, relating to the history of the public housing project for which the murals were commissioned and the history of the works themselves. She constructs her unique sculptural forms from window screens and joint compound, which she then paints with original patterns. In Supple Beat, Zacarias's patterns are inspired by the related murals-- unique color palettes and geometric forms. Born and raised in Mexico City, Zacarias has painted more than thirty large-scale public murals. She holds an MFA from Hunter College.

Through May 05, 2013 - New York

Since the 1970s Camilo Vergara has been traveling across the United States photographing and thus documenting hand-painted murals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as they appeared on the walls of establishments such as car repair shops, barbershops, and fast food restaurants in city streets and alley ways. The folk art portraits have expressed how the inner-city residents saw the slain civil rights leader--at times a statesman, a hero, a visionary, or a martyr. Vergara also discovered that these images were often based on iconic photographs of Dr. King but that, depending upon the neighborhood where they were created, the portraits could take on the likeness of Latinos, Native Americans, or Asians.

Roman Vishniac Rediscovered brings together four decades of work by an extraordinarily versatile and innovative photographer for the first time. Vishniac (1897-1990) created the most widely recognized and reproduced photographic record of Jewish life in Eastern Europe between the two World Wars. These celebrated photographs were taken on assignment for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, the world's largest Jewish relief organization, from 1935–38, yet this exhibition follows the photographer's long and accomplished career from the early 1920s through the 1950s.This exhibition introduces recently discovered and radically diverse new bodies of work by Vishniac, and repositions his iconic photographs of Eastern Europe within the broader tradition of 1930s commissioned social documentary photography. The exhibition is organized by ICP Adjunct Curator Maya Benton.

We Went Back: Photographs from Europe 1933-1956 by Chim - International Center of Photography
Through May 05, 2013 - New York

This retrospective exhibition traces the development of Chim's career as an intellectually engaged photojournalist, placing his life and work in the broader context of 1930s-50s photography and European politics. Born Dawid Szymin in Warsaw, Chim (who after WWII published under the name David Seymour) began his career in 1933 photographing for leftist magazines in Paris. In 1936, along with his friends Robert Capa and Gerda Taro, Chim traveled to Spain to photograph the civil war in support of the Republican side, publishing regularly in all the major European and American picture magazines. Chim was an astute observer of 20th-century European political affairs, workers' rights, and culture, from the beginnings of the antifascist struggle to the rebuilding of countries ravaged by World War II. The exhibition will showcase over 120 mainly vintage black-and white and color prints, publications in which his work originally appeared, contact sheets, and personal material. The exhibition is organized by ICP Curator Cynthia Young.

Attack of the Bloodsuckers! - Long Island Children's Museum
Through May 05, 2013 - Garden City

This exhibition runs through May 5, 2013.

Projects 99: Meiro Koizumi - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through May 06, 2013 - New York

Working in video and performance, Meiro Koizumi (Japanese, b. 1976) has built a compelling body of work that deals with power dynamics on scales from the familial to the national, and examines questions of political and psychological control. Implicating himself, his performers, and the viewer through choreographed emotional manipulations, Koizumi creates works that straddle the uncomfortable and indefinable line between cruelty and comedy. His first solo museum presentation in the United States, Projects 99 includes a selection of earlier projects, as well as Defect in Vision (2011), Meiro's most ambitious and accomplished project to date. Probing the idea of blindness -- both philosophical and physical -- the piece is projected on two sides of a single screen, preventing the viewer from taking in both views at once. The action follows two performers who repeatedly enact a domestic scene set during World War II. While staged in the historical past, the scene's portent of impending catastrophe has taken on a new relevance following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, in a work that is incisive, thought-provoking, and visually lush.

Gutai: Splendid Playground - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through May 08, 2013 - New York

As part of the Guggenheim's Asian Art Program, the museum presents North America's first museum exhibition devoted to Gutai, the most influential artists' collective and artistic movement in postwar Japan and one of the most important international avant-garde movements of the 1950s and 1960s. Organized thematically and chronologically to explore Gutai's inventive approach to materials, process, and performativity, the exhibition explores the group's radical experimentation across a range of media and styles and demonstrates how individual artists pushed the limits of what art could be in a postatomic age. The spectrum of works includes painting, experimental performance and film, indoor and outdoor installation art, sound art, interactive or "playful" art, light art, and Kinetic art. The exhibition comprises some 120 objects by 25 artists on loan from museum and private collections in Japan, the United States, and Europe, and offers new scholarship, especially on so-called late Gutai works that date from 1965 to 1972. Gutai: Splendid Playground is organized by Ming Tiampo, Associate Professor of Art History, Carleton University, Ottawa, and Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator of Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. This exhibition is supported in part by The Japan Foundation and the Dedalus Foundation, Inc. The Leadership Committee for Gutai: Splendid Playground is gratefully acknowledged for its support.

Degas, Miss La La, and the Cirque Fernando - Morgan Library & Museum
Through May 12, 2013 - New York

For several successive evenings in January 1879, Edgar Degas (1834-1917) attended performances at the Cirque Fernando by one of the most famous circus performers of his time, an aerialist known as Miss La La. For her extraordinary act, Miss La La was slowly hoisted nearly seventy feet into the circus's domed roof, suspended solely from a rope clenched between her teeth. Degas produced a number of studies of the performer and the circus building--drawings, pastels, and an oil sketch--before creating his celebrated painting, Miss La La at the Cirque Fernando. The exhibition brings together for the first time Degas's remarkable painting, on loan from the National Gallery, London, and nearly all of the related preparatory works. Also on view will be images of the Cirque Fernando by Degas's contemporaries, photographs of Miss La La and her troupe, and posters and other printed material.

Katie Goodman in 'I Didn't F It Up' - Stage 72
Through May 18, 2013 - New York

Tackling spicy and often off-limits subjects like MILF’s, teen abstinence, and drunk-dialing Obama, Katie somehow manages to be charming yet challenging. A liberal through and through, Katie knows how to poke fun at conservatives, but also calling out the Dems. Songs like her Tea Party spoof platform called, “I Ain’t Funding That Shit,” hit hard and hilarious. The number one comment after shows from audience members is that their cheeks hurt from laughing so hard. Political AND personal, Katie’s motherhood debacles pepper the show with a self-deprecating look into her parenting flubs and foibles. Pulling it all together with the theme of not being the one who screwed up the world we inherited, she makes a good case for how to un-screw it up, and her humor might just be one of the ways.

The Panoramic River: the Hudson and the Thames - Hudson River Museum
Through May 19, 2013 - Yonkers

In the late 18th century, British artists developed the large-scale panorama, which became a popular form of entertainment in Europe and the United States. The Hudson River Museum's exhibition, "The Panoramic River: the Hudson and the Thames," explores the panoramic vista as the ideal expression for a new, all-embracing way of seeing the landscape that influenced how the public and artists perceived it as well. By the early 19th century, painters such as Robert Havell Jr. worked to express this panoramic perspective in their choice and depiction of vistas. Havell and other artists in the exhibition such as Thomas Cole, Jasper Cropsey, and John Kensett, favored the chain of cities, suburbs, and countryside along these two rivers, where horizontal planes and historical associations gave form to both artistic and cultural expression. "The Panoramic River" features loans from museums, galleries, and private collections. Museums lending paintings include: Baltimore Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Fenimore Art Museum, The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College; Maryland State Archives; Metropolitan Museum of Art; The New-York Historical Society; and Princeton University Art Museum. "The Panoramic River" is organized by Hudson River Museum co-curators Bartholomew Bland, Director of Curatorial Affairs, and Laura Vookles, Chief Curator of Collections. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with additional essays by Pat Hardy, Curator of Paintings, Prints and Drawings, Museum of London, and Geoff Snell, Doctoral Student, University of Sussex and the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, England. The exhibition and the accompanying catalogue have been made possible by a generous grant from the Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Foundation for the Arts, Inc. On view through May 19, 2013.

Piero della Francesca in America - Frick Collection
Through May 19, 2013 - New York

Mellon Fellow and guest curator Nathaniel Silver.

Organized by the Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown, New York, this exhibition includes more than 40 oil paintings spanning William Matthew Prior's career from 1824 to 1856. Through his pragmatic marketing strategy, Prior was able to document the faces of middle-class Americans throughout his lifetime, making art accessible to a previously overlooked group. A versatile artist, Prior is well known not only for the skill and range of his technique but for the diversity of his sitters. Prior's involvement with Millerism (early Adventism) was instrumental in his personal development as well as providing access to new clients, including many African Americans.

Women's Studies - American Folk Art Museum
Through May 26, 2013 - New York

The late twentieth century has seen great strides for women working within visual mediums, yet the male gaze persists as the primary perspective from which women are considered -- and thus perceived - in film and art. This exhibition presents drawings and photographs of women by four self-taught artists from the1940s through the late twentieth century, two male, two female. Eugene Von Bruenchenhein, Paul D. Humphrey, Nellie Mae Rowe, and Inez Nathaniel Walker offer four very different approaches that raise questions of intent, portrayal, and self-identity: Are the portraits acts of creation or acts of documentation, mimesis or wish fulfillment? Are self-taught artists immune from the pervasive male gaze of mainstream artmaking spheres, or do they reflect a gender divide that still runs deeply within American society?

THE PRINTS OF ETIENNE LEOPOLD TROUVELOT - Stamford Museum and Nature Center
Through May 27, 2013 - Stamford

Etienne Leopold Trouvelot (1827 ? 1895) had a career as an astronomical artist, after a disastrous career as an entomologist. He introduced the Gypsy Moth to North America accidentally, in 1869. Trouvelot?s exacting details and nuanced shading produced imagery that rivaled even the finest and most technologically advanced photographic images of the time. Today, Trouvelot?s works endure as the most detailed and meticulous illustrations of celestial phenomena ever complied. Included in the exhibition will be images as varied as the Planet Jupiter, The Great Comet of 1881 and the Partial Eclipse of the Moon.

Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through May 27, 2013 - New York

Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity will present a revealing look at the role of fashion in the works of the Impressionists and their contemporaries. Some eighty major figure paintings, seen in concert with period costumes, accessories, fashion plates, photographs, and popular prints, will highlight the vital relationship between fashion and art during the pivotal years, from the mid-1860s to the mid-1880s, when Paris emerged as the style capital of the world. With the rise of the department store, the advent of ready-made wear, and the proliferation of fashion magazines, those at the forefront of the avant-garde -- from Manet, Monet, and Renoir to Baudelaire, Mallarme, and Zola -- turned a fresh eye to contemporary dress, embracing la mode as the harbinger of la modernite. The novelty, vibrancy, and fleeting allure of the latest trends in fashion proved seductive for a generation of artists and writers who sought to give expression to the pulse of modern life in all its nuanced richness. Without rivaling the meticulous detail of society portraitists such as Tissot or Stevens or the graphic flair of fashion plates, the Impressionists nonetheless engaged similar strategies in the making (and in the marketing) of their pictures of stylish men and women that sought to reflect the spirit of their age.

10-Foot Cops - Children's Museum of Manhattan
Through May 27, 2013 - Upper West Side

The Children's Museum of Manhattan is hosting 10-Foot Cops: The NYPD's Mounted Unit, a glimpse into the history and daily lives of officers from New York City's Mounted Police Force.

NYCPM will reopen in the Spring of 2013. Since its origins in the 19th century, the NYPD's Mounted Police has been regarded as one of New York City's most elite units.

Children can have their picture taken sitting in a saddle and see uniforms, paintings, historic photographs and illustrations. The exhibit also includes a replica of a NYPD horse stable and shorts from the 1940 NYPD film "Training Police Horses" and a clip from the Department's "Inside the NYPD" from 2007. Visitors will come away with an appreciation of the training and dedication required of both police officer and horse alike from the story of the mounted unit's rich history and their continuing day-to-day policing operations in parks, on city streets and at parades and public demonstrations.

Through May 31, 2013 - Garden City

Their diverse works are located throughout the scenic 75-acre arboretum on the Garden City campus. The biennial will be on view from September 1, 2012 to May 31, 2014. A free reception will be held on Sunday, September 30, 2012, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., along with a walking tour of the sculptures beginning at 2:00 p.m. in the Ruth S. Harley University Center Lobby. This outdoor installation showcases the talents of Miggy Buck (NY), John Clement (NY), Maria Hall (NY), Ed Haugevik (NY), William King (NY), Anti Liu (NY), Johnny Poux (NY), Kim Radochia (MA), Christopher Saucedo (NY), and Hans Van de Bovenkamp (NY). Each sculptor presents his or her own artistic language; their own stories and thoughts to the viewer. Works of art encompass use of various materials: steel, bronze, aluminum, concrete and reflective mirrors. These man-made creations are transposed into poetic visual narrations. The Outdoor Sculpture Biennial brings forth new faces with the celebrated works of William King and Hans Van de Bovenkamp. Mr. King’s Tennis For Money abstractly illustrates four players at the net poised to begin. Van de Bovenkamp’s steel structure entitled Family Outing, is composed of organic flowing vertical forms evoking a powerful uplifting spirit. The exhibit also breaks new ground with Johnny Poux’s slender, large-scale kinetic aluminum structure, entitled Seed, as the tallest piece to be on display. John Clement’s sculpture Duke is the heaviest work, weighing more than 3,000 pounds. This coiled, dense, steel piece can catch one’s eye from afar as well, because of its striking red color. The combination of unique art and magnificent pathways, allows art enthusiasts and other viewers to enjoy each piece as it interacts with its surroundings on the Adelphi campus. Through the changing seasons, these impressive large outdoor constructions communicate and age with their environment.

Louis Armstrong at Freedomland - Louis Armstrong House Museum
Through May 31, 2013 - Corona

The story of the early 1960s is in many ways a story of freedom. In the United States, African-Americans were growing more vocal in their struggle for Civil Rights. A nation turned with hope to young president John F. Kennedy to lead them through the Cold War. The Berlin Wall was constructed in August 1961, splitting one of Europe's biggest cities in half. The Vietnam War was beckoning. Looking to escape the often volatile reports on the nightly news, Americans looked for escape in this era through sporting events, television and even in amusement parks, most notably Disneyland. After helping Disneyland open in 1955, that park's Vice President, Cornelius Vanderbilt Wood Jr. left and began his own corporation, focusing on designing a New York version of the park. On June 19, 1960, Freedomland U.S.A., "The World's Largest Entertainment Center," opened in the Bronx in front of a crowd of 63,000 guests. Though the 85-acre park was larger than Disneyland, it was already in debt by its second year and would close in 1964 after just five seasons. Beginning in 1961, Freedomland's "Moon Bowl" (echoing the era's "space race) became a venue for some of the top entertainment acts in America, including Chubby Checker, Tony Bennett, and Louis Armstrong, who performed there in 1961 and 1964. The Louis Armstrong House Museum's vast collections contain many precious artifacts and previously unseen photographs by Jack Bradley, helping "Louis Armstrong at Freedomland" to paint an intimate portrait of Armstrong on stage and off during this turbulent time in history, spreading joy to fans young and old with his integrated band of All Stars.

Through June 02, 2013 - Bronx

Overlaying different traditions, styles, and narratives, Honey, I rearranged the Collection presents an idea of museum as a restless play of combination. Honey, I Rearranged the Collection features artworks from the 40th Anniversary's 40 Years, 40 Gifts campaign, which has received support from Ford Foundation and the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Trust, as well as individual funders.

Joan Semmel: A Lucid Eye - Bronx Museum of The Arts
Through June 09, 2013 - Bronx

Well known for the uncompromising feminist tone of her early work, Joan Semmel has turned her attention over the past decade to the process of image making. Photography has played a central role in Semmel's work since she decided to represent the figure in the early 1970s. However, Semmel's use of photography has often escaped the viewer whose attention focuses on the depicted image. In 2005, Semmel began to afford the viewer a glimpse into her method by aiming the camera towards a mirror, thus capturing the artist in the process of composing the image. Lately, using the camera and mirrors, Semmel has created a haunting series of self-portraits that evoke the passage of time. Organized by Antonio Sergio Bessa.

Face to Face - Children's Museum of the Arts
Through June 09, 2013 - SoHo

For twenty-five years, The Children's Museum of the Arts has provided children of all backgrounds the creative tools needed to promote self-expression and esteem through visual and performing arts. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, CMA is proud to present Face to Face, an exhibit that offers a fascinating exploration of self-identity through still, moving, and living portraits, as portrayed by children using traditional methods of painting and drawing as well as technology. The main exhibit will consist of 40 portraits selected from CMA's Permanent Collection of children's art from over 50 countries, dating back to the 1930's. These pieces represent a range of historical moments, cultures and medium and will be hung salon style throughout the gallery. To incorporate CMA's philosophy of hands-on art-making, the exhibit will be accompanied by a variety of interactive installations that examine the texture, shape and sound of portraits. CMA will set up hands-on stations that will encourage visitors to become part of the exhibit, including reimagined versions of a typical self-portrait station. The CMA Media Lab will also create a photo booth in which visitors can take photos that will be projected on the wall. These photos will stream into a montage that will be accessioned into the collection and will also serve as a fascinating time-lapse of the exhibit as a whole. Face to Face also offers aspiring young artists the opportunity to submit their own works for a chance to become part of the museum's Permanent Collection. CMA will accept 25 original original works, in honor of 25 years of operation, to be selected by the museum's curatorial team. One selected piece will be chosen by an online viewer's choice campaign, hosted through CMA's website and social media platforms. To explore dimension, the exhibition will include a large-scale Pin Impression Board, offering several panels for visitors to experiment with and view their face as artwork. CMA will also present their first ever Artist-At-Work station in the Fine Arts Studio. Here, guest artists will volunteer their time and allow visitors to observe them in action as they create original portraits.

Aesthetic Ambitions: Edward Lycett and Brooklyn's Faience Manufacturing Company - Brooklyn Museum
Through June 16, 2013 - Brooklyn

This exhibition highlights the nearly fifty-year career of ceramicist Edward Lycett (American, 1833-1910), creative director of the Faience Manufacturing Company from 1884 to 1890. The range of works illustrates Lycett's talent and adaptability to stylistic changes in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as well as his vision for Faience, a company based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, that earned acclaim for producing ornamental wares that introduced a new standard of excellence in American ceramics. These bold and eclectic pieces synthesized Japanese, Chinese, and Islamic influences characteristic of the Aesthetic movement and were sold in the United States' foremost art ware emporiums, including Tiffany & Company. Among the ceramics on view are 39 Faience pieces, including a number of large-scale vases.

Cambodian Rattan - The Sculptures of Sopheap Pich - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through June 16, 2013 - New York

This exhibition presents ten works by the contemporary Cambodian artist Sopheap Pich (born 1971), who lives and works in Phnom Penh. Pich works principally in rattan and bamboo, constructing organic open-weave forms that are solid and ethereal, representational and abstract. Much of his work is inspired by elements of the human anatomy or plant life. His constructions combine his training as a painter with the spatial conceptualization of a sculptor, creating three-dimensional objects that are largely defined by their graphic character. Pich's art consciously embodies his memories of culture and place. The exhibition will be installed in three spaces in the Asian galleries, including an integration into historical displays, and is part of the Museum's contribution to the New York-wide Season of Cambodia.

Wait, Later This Will Be Nothing: Editions by Dieter Roth - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through June 24, 2013 - Midtown

The artistic practice of Dieter Roth (Swiss, b. Germany, 1930-1998) encompassed everything from painting and sculpture to film and video, but it is arguably through his editioned works -- prints, books, and multiples -- that he made his most radical contributions. These experiments include the use of organic materials in lieu of traditional mediums, including book-sausages filled with ground paper in place of meat, and multiples of plastic toys mired in melted chocolate, as well as a dazzling array of variations on printed postcards. Wait, Later This Will Be Nothing: Editions by Dieter Roth focuses on Roth's incredibly innovative and prolific period from 1960 to 1975. The centerpiece of the exhibition is an expanded presentation of Snow (1963-69), a Roth artist's book in MoMA's collection, featuring many more pages of the book than have ever been exhibited. These pages contain a trove of insightful information about the artist's creative process and plans for other works. A selection of handmade books, miniature volumes, and the newly acquired Literaturwurst (1961-69), considered Roth's most radical experiment with the book format, will also be on view. Beginning in the late 1960s, the artist began working with chocolate, a material that became intimately associated with his work, as he explored issues of decay and decomposition. Taken together, this selection of works offers a radical view of mediums that are historically considered staid and traditional, while giving insight into the work of one of the artistic titans of the 20th century.

The Sau-Wing Lam Collection of Rare Italian Stringed Instruments - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through June 30, 2013 - New York

The Sau-Wing Lam collection of violin-family instruments is one of the most important collections of bowed Italian stringed instruments ever assembled by a private individual. Sau-Wing Lam (1923-1988) was born in Shanghai, China, where he graduated with a degree in economics from the prestigious Saint John's University. In 1948 he moved to New York City and eventually became the president of the Dah Chong Hong Trading Corporation, Inc., an import-export business that founded some of the most successful automobile dealerships in the country. An amateur violinist and violist, Lam bought his first important violin in the 1960s and assembled his impressive collection of violins and bows over the next twenty-five years. His holdings eventually included such significant instruments as the "Baltic" violin by Giuseppe Guarneri "del Gesu," the "Bavarian" and "Scotland University" violins by Antonio Stradivari, the "ex Collin" violin by Nicolo Amati, an extremely early viola by Andrea Amati, and Lam's favorite violin, an instrument by Giuseppe Guarneri, one of his earliest acquisitions. Sau-Wing Lam enjoyed sharing his collection and regularly opened his home to scholars, dealers, and musicians. The family hosted impromptu chamber concerts and passionate discussions about music that would last well into the early morning hours. On the twenty-fifth anniversary of Mr. Lam's death, the collection is being exhibited here for the first time in the United States.

At War with the Obvious: Photographs by William Eggleston - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through July 28, 2013 - New York

The Met presents the work of this idiosyncratic artist, whose influences are drawn from disparate if surprisingly complementary sources -- from Walker Evans and Henri Cartier-Bresson in photography to Bach and late Baroque music. Many of Eggleston's most recognized photographs are lush studies of the social and physical landscape found in the Mississippi delta region that is his home. From this base, the artist explores the awesome and, at times, the raw visual poetics of the American vernacular.

A Trip from Here to There - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through July 30, 2013 - New York

Over the course of two years, from 2008 to 2010, the artist Mateo Lopez traveled through his native Colombia, from Bogota to Cali to Medellin. Crisscrossing vast expanses of territory via Vespa, Lopez made drawings, rendering the ordinary objects he encountered in precise detail. In a country occupied by government forces and paramilitary rebels, traveling itself -- and the diaristic drawing that served as documentation -- became an act of resistance. Using Lopez's Viaje sin movimiento -- an installation of his drawings from this journey -- as a starting point, A Trip from Here to There explores practices and works generated by walking and wandering. As members of exploratory expeditions and surveys, painters and draftsmen have long played key roles in the plotting and investigation of place. However, in the second half of the 20th century, the journey itself became both medium and subject for many artists. In some works, a walk or sojourn is precisely documented via maps and charts, dates and times, while in others, wandering's inherent detours and deviations are exploited, resulting in collages of impressions or graphs of explored terrain. For some artists, drawing is both nomadic and solitary, while for others it is a way to engage with one's environment and its inhabitants. In addition to Lopez, featured artists include Marcel Broodthaers, Juan Downey, Hamish Fulton, Brion Gysin, Mona Hatoum, Richard Long, Jorge Macchi, and Robert Morris. Genzken's work has been part of the artistic discourse since she began exhibiting in the mid-1970s, but over the last decade a new generation has been inspired by her radical inventiveness. The past 10 years have been particularly productive for Genzken, who, with a new language of found objects and collage, has created several bodies of work that have redefined assemblage for a new era. These groups of sculptures range from smaller, diorama-like works to room-filling installations.

Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui - Brooklyn Museum
Through August 04, 2013 - Brooklyn

The first solo exhibition in a New York museum by the globally renowned contemporary artist El Anatsui, this show will feature over 30 works in metal and wood that transform appropriated objects into site-specific sculptures. Anatsui converts found materials into a new type of media that lies between sculpture and painting, combining aesthetic traditions from his birth country, Ghana; his home in Nsukka, Nigeria; and the global history of abstraction. Included in the exhibition are twelve recent monumental wall and floor sculptures, widely considered to represent the apex of Anatsui's career. The metal wall works, created with bottle caps from a distillery in Nsukka, are pieced together to form colorful, textured hangings that take on radically new shapes with each installation. Anatsui is captivated by his materials' history of use, reflecting his own nomadic background. Gravity and Grace responds to a long history of innovations in abstract art and performance, building upon cross-cultural exchange among Africa, Europe, and the Americas and presenting works in a wholly new, African medium. Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui is organized by the Akron Art Museum and made possible by a major grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The Brooklyn presentation is organized by Kevin Dumouchelle, Associate Curator of the Arts of Africa and the Pacific Islands, Brooklyn Museum.

"In this show, we have macro or relatively large moths. They're gorgeous." Primitive moths appeared about 195 million years ago, whereas the oldest butterfly fossil is about 55 million years old. And today, moths outnumber butterflies 15 to 1, with approximately 150,000 described species of moths worldwide, compared to 10,000 butterfly species.

Applied Design - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 31, 2014 - New York

There are still people who think that design is just about making things, people, and places pretty. In truth, design has spread to almost every facet of human activity, from science and education to politics and policymaking, for a simple reason: one of design's most fundamental tasks is to help people respond to change. A designer today can choose to focus on interactions, interfaces, the Internet, visualizations, socially minded infrastructures and products, 5-D spaces, bioengineering, sustainability, video games, critical scenarios, and yes, even furniture. Several outstanding examples of this vitality and diversity are presented in this installation, ranging from a mine detonator by young Afghani designer Massoud Hassani to a vessel made by transforming desert sand into glass using only the energy of the sun. Also on display are 14 video games -- including Pac-Man, The Sims, and Katamari Damacy -- that constitute the beginning of a new branch of MoMA's collection.
