The Sunnyside Piano Academy was founded by director Evan Mazunik in 2012 with the mission to demolish boredom in music. "I have a knack for inspiring students who are ready to quit music to fall in love with music all over again," said Mazunik. "I passionately believe that every student can discover music that speaks to them and inspires them to stretch and grow." "Whenever I see that a student has 'checked out' and is not engaged with their piano studies, I am inspired to discover the one thing that can reignite their interest, whether it's Chopin, Miles Davis, or video game theme songs. As soon as my students reconnect with the spark of their own creativity, I am instantly elated and reminded why I love to teach."

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?

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. Unique, highly visible, and known by their colorful nickname, 10-Foot Cops, these officers are involved in all aspects of policing the city. 10-Foot Cops uses more than 40 original artifacts to explore the lives the men, women, and horses at the heart of this mounted unit. 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.

Street, a new video by the British-born artist James Nares, forms the centerpiece of this exhibition.

Adelphi University to Host its Seventh Outdoor Sculpture Biennial - Adelphi University
Through May 31, 2013 - Garden City

The Adelphi University Exhibitions Program is delighted to present its seventh Outdoor Sculpture Biennial, featuring the works of 10 skilled sculptors. 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.

There are nearly 13,000 foster children in New York City alone and every child deserves a secure home and a loving family. In this spirit, on May 7, a new Heart Gallery NYC Photo Exhibit will launch at Children's Museum of the Arts featuring 18 beautiful photographs of children in foster care, all of whom are hoping to find their "forever families."
