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.

Sonny Landreth - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
April 10, 2013 - New York

Eric Clapton once declared: "Sonny Landreth is probably the most underestimated musician on the planet, and also probably one of the most advanced." Take Clapton's word for it - Landreth is a musician's musician, a blues guitarist and singer whose unorthodox virtuosic slide guitar style is unique and unforgettable. He plays with the slide on his little finger, using the other fingers in his left hand to fret notes on the guitar's neck, all while playing chords and melodies in his right hand. Of course, Landreth can also play "traditional" guitar with the best of them. A formidable studio musician, he has appeared on recordings by Mountain, John Hiatt, Jimmy Buffett, and numerous other musical legends. Over decades of recording and performing, he has built up a loyal following among his fans and musical peers. Born in 1951 in Canton, Mississippi, Landreth eventually settled with his family in Lafayette, Louisiana, where, after a stint with the trumpet, he first picked up the guitar. His first albums appeared on the Louisiana-based Blues Unlimited label, and his second release, Way Down in Louisiana (1986), got him noticed by some Nashville record executives. Soon, he was working with major musical stars like John Hiatt, John Mayall, and New Orleans bandleader Allen Toussaint, and was cutting additional albums, including Outward Bound (1992), South of I-10, and several discs that featured source material from earlier in his career. The new millennium has found Landreth continuing to tour, record, and collaborate. His recent releases include Levee Town (2000), The Road We're On (2003), Grant Street (2005) and From the Reach (2008). Elemental Journey, his 11th album, came out this past May. The disc is Landreth's first all-instrumental effort and his most adventurous work to date. "What I'd hoped to end up creating was sonic stories without words," he says. "And because there are no lyrics, it's really important to connect on an emotional level ... I want listeners to feel something that resonates with them personally. I've always tried to make music that engages you on a deeper level that way."

Nederlands Dans Theater - The Joyce Theater
Through April 12, 2013 - New York

Nederlands Dans Theater's magnificent dancers perform an evening of two visually startling and provocative pieces created by co-choreographers Sol Leon and Paul Lightfoot. Intimately connected, each explores the nature of love. Set to powerfully beautiful Beethoven works -- Piano Concertos Nos. 3 and 4 and to excerpts from Symphony No. 5 -- Sehnsucht (translated as "yearning") begins with two dancers hovering in a cube-like room. At various times, the room spins, turning the side walls into the ceiling and floor, and then the other way around. This spinning room, with the man and woman trapped inside it, serves as a metaphor for an intense love that is both intimate and claustrophic. As more dancers take the stage, this metaphor is extended throughout the piece. The evening concludes with Schmetterling (translated as "butterfly"). A perfect companion piece to Sehnsucht, this work also examines the nature of love, this time perhaps in its most basic form -- that between mother and child. Set to the cynical love songs by indie pop group Magnetic Fields and British composer Max Richter, Schmetterling replaces the melancholy of Sehnsucht with a sly, somewhat humorous take on love.

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.

Shoe Obsession features over 150 examples of the most extraordinary shoe styles of the 21st-century, highlighting the new concepts, constructions, materials, and types of embellishment that have positioned shoes at the height of fashion. The popularity of designer shoes has grown rapidly. The television series Sex in the City, which was broadcast from 1998 to 2004, is often credited with helping to launch the cult for designer shoes. Who can forget Carrie Bradshaw's Manolo Blahnik pumps ? or her assertion of "a woman's right to shoes." Blahnik's popularity paved the way for other high-end shoe designers, a number of whom have become celebrities in their own right. Christian Louboutin's undeniably sexy shoes?with their signature red soles?have established him as one of the best-known footwear designers in the world.

Lizzie Borden at Eight O'Clock - Workshop Theater
Through April 13, 2013 - New York

Over a century after the grisly hatchet murders of Lizzie’s father and stepmother in 1892, the still unsolved crime remains a source of widespread fascination, retold in many forms. In Giannunzio’s play, Lizzie takes the podium at her local Historical Society to clear her name once and for all. This chilling first person account has been hailed as “a subtle, masterful performance… what begins as a public excavation of the Lizzie Borden case turns into a trial of her captivated audience…working both as a murder mystery and as a psychological portrait of a woman, a town, and an ongoing national fascination with all the gory detail” – nytheatre.com. “a riveting, haunting portrayal” – History News Network.

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.

RISE - Theatre 54 @ Shetler Studios
Through April 20, 2013 - New York

RISE is an opera-infused play intertwining the tale of Rome's most infamous anarchist Emperor with the extravagant ambition of four modern-day misfits. In a decaying Roman Empire, debauchery and ruthlessness are de rigueur, but Boy-King Elagabalus's excesses and flagrant disregard for religious tradition and sexual taboos shocks even the most callous citizens. Placed on the throne by the conniving machinations of his mother and grandmother, Elagabalus marries a sacred Vestal Virgin, skewers the national religion, and flaunts his exploits with men and women of all classes. On the outskirts of LA, aspirations run high. Brick Richards has been a top player in porn for ten years, and his manager Myrna Malone desperately wants to convince him to transition to mainstream movies before his star fades. Myrna's assistant Glenn wants something different from Brick: a great, sweeping romance to make life complete. Glenn's roommate Mia doesn't care about sweeping romances, she just wants to achieve her dream of launching the next big cosmetics line, and maybe Myrna or Brick can make that happen? Through human history, one conflict is timeless: when personal ambition eclipses all other considerations, crossed desires lead to double crossing.

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.

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. An exhibition catalogue provides insights into her life and work. The New York presentation is organized by Sandhini Poddar, Associate Curator, Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
