The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos. The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge--not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Teen Art Gallery Exhibition: T.A.G In Black and White - HiArt!
Through June 08, 2013 - Chelsea

Teen Art Gallery is a unique gallery created entirely by teenagers who curate it and run it. On May 12, the group will open a show called T.A.G. in Black and White at HiArt! HiArt! is an innovative art program for children and the show will benefit their Time In Children's Arts Initiative, an interdisciplinary arts immersion program that brings under-served children from Harlem and the South Bronx into the world of the living arts as part of their regular school day. As part of its collaboration with HiArt, the T.A.G. team and some of the exhibiting artists will be working with the children in the program. The show consists of artwork that is rendered in black and white and includes work by: Lisbeth Checo, Mindy Zou, Morris Reeves, Mary Walker Rippe, Kevin Nguyen, Maya Moverman, Phoebe Kaufman, Clara Lu, Teri Minogue, Jasmine Clarke, Sungwon Hong, Alika Feldman, Arielle Trenk, and Robin Krupnick. T.A.G. was started two years ago by an idealistic sixteen-year-old public high school sophomore who wanted to give young artists from all across the country a chance to exhibit their work. Since then they have had 4 exhibits showing the work of hundreds of teenage artist from the ages of 12-19 and attracting media coverage from The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Artlog, Exhibition A, Paper Magazine and Galo magazine. T.A.G. artists come, not only from all five boroughs, but also from across the United States. T.A.G gives them a unique opportunity to be part of the art world, to feel empowered early in their career in what can be a very intimidating art world, and to know that they can find an audience for their creative work. That early experience of validation can be life changing to a young artist. Last year T.A.G. had shows at BravinLee programs in Chelsea and Salon 94 Freemans on the Lower East Side. Their website, which is regularly updated with young artists work, is

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.

After the Museum - The Home Front 2013 - Museum of Arts & Design
Through June 09, 2013 - New York

Transforming the physical and contextual environment of the museum into a focal point for the NYC design community, the Museum of Arts and Design's annual design program, The Home Front: American Design Now, expands into its first physical exhibition, After the Museum. Gathering a variety of unique design voices from throughout NYC, After the Museum utilizes the institution as a platform for launching new, radical and unorthodox proposals for contemporary art and design museums in the 21st century. As artists, designers, and corporations have increasingly begun to stage exhibitions, lectures, and workshops modeled from the role of museums in the 20th century, current museum forms are increasingly called into question. Reacting to this new cultural reality, After the Museum stages and presents a series of installations and programs that reveal the largely hidden research component of the design practice, while examining cultural institution's role in the shaping of design past, present, and future.

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.
