Creating A Sense Of Place - Bronx Community College Hall of Fame Gallery
Through November 29, 2012 - Bronx

The impressive new North Hall and Library at Bronx Community College (BCC) is now home to one of the largest public art commissions the Bronx has seen since the late 1930s. On Sunday, November 4, 2012, artist Daniel Hauben’s 22 paintings—collectively entitled A Sense of Place—at the North Hall & Library at BCC and an accompanying exhibition Creating a Sense of Place (on view October 23—November 29, 2012) at the Hall of Fame Gallery, will be publicly celebrated. Honoring a long tradition of incorporating fine art into majestic libraries, Robert A.M. Stern Architects designated specific locations for artwork in their original designs for the new building. Commissioned by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York on behalf of the City University of New York, the commission to create the artwork was awarded to acclaimed Bronx-born Daniel Hauben, who worked on the 22 paintings for three years. The paintings feature classic Bronx vistas and neighborhood street scenes, waterways and bridges, elevated trains, rooftops and BCC campus scenes. Two ten-foot murals grace the stairwells leading up to the library, while 20 paintings measuring five-feet-wide each elaborate the frieze along the balcony that surrounds the elegant and airy Information Commons. Hauben’s focus of the Bronx as subject matter invites the viewer to cultivate a greater appreciation and awareness of the world around them, and to see their environment—and their place within it—in a new light. Born and raised in the Bronx, artist Daniel Hauben has spent nearly 30 years capturing the life of his home borough on paper and canvas. Although he travels periodically to paint in such faraway places as Europe, Costa Rica and South India, he always returns to the streets of the Bronx for inspiration. The winner of numerous awards from the Bronx Council on the Arts, The Bronx County Historical Society, Americans for the Arts and other noteworthy organizations, Hauben has had many solo exhibitions both in the U.S. and abroad.

Checks & Balances - Presidents and American Finance - Museum of American Finance
Through November 30, 2012 - New York

The US federal government was born of a fiscal crisis produced by the inability of the national and state governments to repay the heavy debts incurred winning independence from England. By luck, pluck and a sprinkling of genius, the new nation averted disaster and soon became one of the most creditworthy in history, able to fund global wars, massive territorial acquisitions and scientific and engineering feats of historic importance and unprecedented scale. Today, however, serious fiscal crisis looms again. The causes and consequences of the current economic crisis are hotly debated, but almost everyone agrees there is no easy fix at hand. Simply put, it has become too difficult to increase taxes or reduce expenditures, and solutions acceptable to both major political parties are in short supply. But the government has faced similar impasses in the past and has managed, with firm leadership, to persevere. This exhibit brings attention to the budget issues that faced five of our greatest Presidents: George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt. It details how they handled those issues, sometimes with spectacular success and other times with controversial or mixed results. The exhibit also shows how each President's life experiences, including personal wealth, may have influenced decisions on important issues like the rate and type of taxation and the acceptable extent of government borrowing. In and of itself, knowledge of the past cannot improve the future, but retracing past glories and disappointments is often the best place to start.

Times Square Moment: A Digital Gallery Featuring TAKESHI MURATA'S PSYCHEDELIC VISUALS - BILLBOARDS IN TIMES SQUARE
Through November 30, 2012 - New York

Billboards in Times Square will explode with Chicago artist Takeshi Murata's psychedelic colors this November as part of the Times Square Moment: A Digital Gallery, a monthly program that transforms New York City's iconic digital signs into cutting edge works of art. A presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts, Murata's Melter 2 will be shown every night throughout the month of November from 11:57pm to midnight. The November program is curated by Electronics Arts Intermix (EAI). In Melter 2 (2003), Takeshi Murata'sanimations are like beautiful waves of color washing over the viewer. Melter 2comes from Murata's early body of work consisting of rich, colorful, psychedelic, hand-drawn animation. The crisp colors and elegant morphing shapes are in stark contrast with the artist's later "data mosh" works, which are based heavily upon digital video glitch, and the .avi format. This nightly, free attraction brings creativity, energy, cutting-edge graphics, and digital art to the Crossroads of the World. When "Times Square Moment: A Digital Gallery"premiered in May of 2012, it marked the first time sign operators surrounding Times Square joined together to offer coordinated creative content at a regularly scheduled time each and every day. The piece will run through out seven city blocks of Times Square every night counting down the three minutes to midnight. November's Times Square Moment features Takeshi Murata's Melter 2, in partnership with Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI).

Spiders Alive! - American Museum of Natural History
Through December 02, 2012 - Upper West Side

For centuries, spiders have inspired storytellers, from Ovid to E. B. White to the creators of the eponymous superhero, but their actual role in diverse ecosystems around the globe is just as captivating. Spiders Alive! immerses visitors in the fascinating and complex world of spiders, among the most versatile animals on the planet: they inhabit every continent but Antarctica and are able to survive in environments that range from deserts to rainforests to crowded cities. Spiders are also important predators. By one estimate, the spiders on one acre of woodland alone consume more than 80 pounds of insects a year. Scientists have identified over 42,000 species of spiders to date, and there are at least as many more to be discovered. Among the live spiders visitors will encounter in this exhibition are the goliath bird eater, one of the largest spiders in the world, whose prey includes snakes, mice, and frogs; the venomous western black widow, one of the few North American spiders harmful to people; and species from other arachnid orders, including African whip spiders, whose whip-like feelers, up to 10 inches in length, help the animal find its way. Spiders Alive! will explore spiders' silk, venom, and little-known defensive mechanisms such as mimicry and noise making. The exhibition will also include larger-than-life models, videos, interactive exhibits, and fossils, and Museum staff will be handling live arachnids for visitors to see up close.

Spiders Alive! - American Museum of Natural History
Through December 02, 2012 - Upper West Side

The American Museum of Natural History announces Spiders Alive!, a new exhibition about the fascinating and complex world of spiders. For centuries, spiders have inspired mythmakers from Ovid to E. B. White to the creators of the eponymous superhero, but their actual role in diverse ecosystems around the globe is just as captivating. Among the most versatile animals on the planet, spiders inhabit every continent but Antarctica and are able to survive in environments that range from deserts to rainforests to crowded cities. "Spiders Alive! continues a tradition of museum exhibitions that bring people, especially children and families, face-to-face with ambassadors from the natural world," says Ellen V. Futter, President of the American Museum of Natural History. "In this exhibition, as in previous popular presentations of live lizards, snakes, frogs, and butterflies, our visitors will meet some of the world's most exotic and fascinating creatures who have much to teach us about the diversity of life, the fragility of natural systems, and our own responsibility to study and steward life on Earth." In Spiders Alive!, visitors will explore spiders' anatomy, diversity, venom, silk, and behavior including little-known defensive mechanisms such as mimicry and noise-making. In addition to live spiders representing 19 species, the exhibition will also include larger-than-life models of spiders, videos, a climbable spider model, and fossils. Museum staff will be handling live arachnids for visitors to see up close, and the exhibition will focus on debunking spider myths, such as: spiders need gravity to build webs, all spiders neglect their offspring, and all spiders are poisonous to humans Spiders are also important predators; without them, insect populations would explode. By one estimate, the spiders on one acre of woodland alone consume more than 80 pounds of insects a year. Scientists have identified over 42,000 species of spiders to date, and they believe that there are at least as many more yet to be discovered. Among the live spiders visitors will encounter in this exhibition are the goliath bird eater, one of the largest spiders in the world, whose prey includes snakes, mice, and frogs; the western black widow, member of one of the few North American spider groups that can be harmful to people; the fishing spider, who senses prey by resting its front legs on the surface of the water; and the golden orb-web spider, which weaves a golden web that can reach more than 3 feet in diameter. Species from other arachnid orders will also be on display, including African whip spiders, whose whip-like feelers, up to 10 inches in length, help the animal find its way; the giant vinegaroon, which may spray a foul-smelling vinegar-like chemical from its abdomen if disturbed; and the desert hairy scorpion, the largest scorpion in America. The exhibition is curated by Norman Platnick, curator emeritus in the Department of Invertebrate Zoology.

Kidd Pivot The Tempest Replica - The Joyce Theater
Through December 02, 2012 - New York

Grabbing well-deserved international attention, former Ballet Frankfurt dancer Crystal Pite fuses classical dance with structured improvisation and a strong theatrical sensibility. In The Tempest Replica, she uses the island setting of Shakespeare's The Tempest as a metaphor for isolation, captivity, and desire. She juxtaposes this setting to a nostalgic cityscape that evokes longing. This is an intriguing work in which chalk-white replicas deliver the story's essential plot, while its underlying tensions are fleshed out by real characters who articulate powerful emotion through dance.

'The Tenant' - Theatre for the New City
Through December 02, 2012 - New York

"The Tenant" by Bill Donnelly is a play in which a working-class midtown couple take a Korean immigrant woman into their hearts. Depending on how you see it, it becomes the tragedy of a lonely woman's unsuccessful act of kindness or the perilous seduction of an innocent couple by her mystic approach to love, life and healing. It's a bittersweet everyday story of love and destiny with a "Twilight Zone" touch. Theater for the New City will present the play November 15 to December 2, directed by Vincent J. Balzano. Sam and Babe are the loving, hard working superintendents of a midtown apartment building, into which moves a waifish young Korean woman named Lucky Star. She is deeply Catholic; she is also a numerologist and a healer. She was raised by nuns in Korea and was imprisoned for fighting off her abusive husband with a knife. She inspires pity and support in the American couple, who offer small favors to make her apartment more liveable and to help her start over in New York. Lucky Star is in an odd state of grace, which Babe hopes to gain from and which Sam finds mysteriously alluring. She worked in a "Barber Shop" (a front for a house of prostitution) in her past, but now in New York, she struggles to redeem herself with the purity of the Virgin Mother. When Babe falls tragically ill, she seeks healing through Lucky Star's herbal potions and massages. When Sam loses Babe, he seeks to replace the loss of his wife with the Korean newcomer; she wants to soothe his loneliness but not give him sex. Love, sex and compassion are forces of Nature, but they are out of kilter, as ferociously narrated by Romeo, the pet parrot of Babe and Sam, who is played by a fourth actor. Perceiving the events of the play from his roost in the kitchen, Romeo's dramatic role is that of an amusing, wise Greek Chorus. He represents Nature in a play that artfully balances between the paranormal and the simply disturbing events of everyday life. This is a first New York full production for playwright Bill Donnelly, whose plays have unfolded over many years while he maintained a career in international law. As a young playwright, he was encouraged by the young Ellen Stewart, founding director of La MaMa Experimental Theater Club, although his plays were not produced by La MaMa. While he worked and lived in Belgium, his plays were championed by the prominent director Andre Ernotte. Donnelly's body of work includes three conventional plays, a full-length musical and a trilogy named "La Valse: Night, Candles, Dawn" that is a new art form called Baloperama®--a synchronous fusion of ballet, opera and drama--and will possibly be mounted in the near future. "The Tenant" is a play that had been gestating for a while but burst from Donnelly's mind in 1994, encouraged and facilitated by Bonnie J. Monte, Artistic Director of Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, who directed the play's first reading. The play had staged readings at The Dramatists Guild in 2006, at The Sage Theater in Midtown, NYC in 2007 and at the Bickford Theater at the Morris Museum, NJ, in 2009. It was chosen by the Dramatists Guild in 2010 with seven others in a national competition for the author to attend a special boot camp on the production side of playwriting. In Spring of 2011, "The Tenant" had a very successful four week workshop at The Producers’ Club on West 44th Street, directed by Vincent J. Balzano. Donnelly lives in Tyler Hill, PA but was a long time resident of Morristown, NJ, where he was president of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce for ten years, following a long career as an attorney with Warner-Lambert Company. During his legal and business career, Donnelly wrote avidly and has been recently energized, thanks partly to "The Tenant" being chosen as one of eight plays by the Dramatists Guild of America to participate in a Self-Production Boot Camp. Director Vincent J. Balzano has been an actor and director for many years, working primarily in and around the tri state area. He has also produced a number of shows and benefits and has directed numerous productions, including "Two By Two," "It’s Only a Play," "How to Succeed…," "The Imaginary Invalid," "The Sisters Rosenswieg" and "You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown." Lucky Star is played by Vivian Chu, Sam is played by Carson Lee, Babe is played by Alexandra Lawrence and Romeo, the Parrot, is played by David Rothstadt. The design team are all resident artists of Theater for the New City: set Design is by Mark Marcante; lighting design is by Alexander Bartenieff and costume design is by Susan Hemley. The parrot costume and general design assistance are by Lytza Colon.
