Kykuit, the six-story stone house and rolling hilltop estate that served as home to four generations of Rockefellers, is open to visitors beginning Saturday, May 5, through Sunday, Nov. 4. Tours are available daily throughout the season except Tuesdays. Kykuit's modern and classical art collection, architecture, and expansive gardens are consistently rated the top attraction in the lower Hudson Valley, and draw tens of thousands of visitors annually. Kykuit, which means "lookout" in Dutch, includes a six-story stone house, multiple terraced gardens, art galleries, outdoor classical and modern sculpture, and commanding Hudson River views. Its hilltop location overlooking the Hudson River and the Palisades is 500 feet above sea level. Visitors to Kykuit learn the story of the Rockefellers, beginning with John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil, whose business acumen made him the richest man in America in his day. He later became the country's first great philanthropist. By his death in 1937, he had given away more than half his fortune through various philanthropic programs. Visitors can choose from four tours: Classic, Grand, Timesaver, and Selected Highlights. The Classic, ideal for first-time visitors, is a shorter experience than the comprehensive, three-hour Grand. Besides the mansion, both of these tours include time in Kykuit's art galleries, gardens, and Coach Barn, with its collection of horse-drawn carriages, vintage automobiles, and equestrian equipment. The 90-minute Timesaver is ideal for those on tighter schedules, while Selected Highlights maximizes time in the gardens.

Universe of Desire - Museum of Sex
Through November 04, 2012 - New York

Type. Swipe. Search. Upload. Download. Post. Stream. These are the new verbs of desire. Our most intimate thoughts, fantasies, and urges are now transmitted via electronic devices to rapt audiences all over the world. These transmissions-from sexts to webcam masturbation feeds-are anonymous yet personal, individual yet collective, everywhere and nowhere, and they are contributing to the largest sexual record to date. In short, desire has gone viral. But what does this mean? And what does it reveal about us? This exhibition explores these very questions through a lens of digital experience by examining what we are searching for, how we do it and what we leave behind on these electronic devices. In piecing this together, we begin to expose staggering truths about who we are and how we interact in this ever-changing world of modern sexuality. "As human behavior becomes more clickable than physical, we can-t help but wonder what this means for our most basic, biological impulse: sex." says Mark Snyder, Director of Exhibitions and Co-Curator of "Universe of Desire." The exhibition explores this very question by examining what we actually search for on the internet and what we leave behind. Neuroscientists Ogi Ogas and Sai Gaddam, authors of the best-selling book, A Billion Wicked Thoughts, provide much of the inspiration for "Universe of Desire." Ogas and Gaddam gathered and coded 400 million internet searches, 55 million of which (or roughly 13 percent) proved to be searches for some kind of erotic content. The findings mined from analyzing the internet habits of tens of millions of people worldwide will be on display in "Universe of Desire." These anonymous searches bring to question our identity by revealing both the expected "kinks" and "squicks" (squirm-inducing kinks), as well as the broad categories of shared desire that account for 80 percent of internet searches, including "cheating partners", "youth", "mature" and various genitalia. Confronted with this research we begin to see just how similar and different we all are as humans. Supporting this content is a variety of media that amplifies and humanizes the scientific findings of A Billion Wicked Thoughts. Showcasing artifacts from Science, Culture, Art and Technology, Universe of Desire explores the virtual cataloging of our sexual wants, infatuations and yearnings by walking patrons through the kind of sex we, as humans, look up on the internet. Photographer Natacha Merritt, author of Digital Diaries, has documented herself digitally for the last 14 years. As one of the first photographers to capture erotic imagery in a digital medium, a selection of this pioneering artist's work is exhibited for the first time in its chronology, offering a visual timeline as example of photographic evolution, serving both as record and expression of our sexual desires through the last decade. Further exploring the relationship between digital imagery and sexual fantasy, visitors to "Universe of Desire" are invited to engage with a series of video and interactive experiences. Highlights include a digital mirror created by Kevin Bleich and Gabriela Guti?rrez which literally deconstructs patrons into pixels, and projects avatars of their "digital selves" onto the walls of the gallery, while an interactive video collage from Johnny Woods lures visitors into a virtual romp of sexual artifacts designed to stimulate, provoke and delight audiences.

Exhibition: Marc Chagall - Nassau County Museum of Art
Through November 04, 2012 - Roslyn Harbor

Marc Chagall is a major exhibition that includes a significant selection of about half of Chagall’s 1957 series of hand-colored etchings of Bible stories, a series never before seen on Long Island. The exhibition portrays this important and loved artist as a storyteller, demonstrating how Chagall, throughout a long and distinguished career, incorporated facets of his early Russian-Jewish heritage into multilayered works. Chagall’s storytelling paintings portray a fantastic pictorial world where heaven and earth seem to meet. It’s a world where people and animals—cows, goats, donkeys, horses and birds—float upside down or sideways, irrespective of the laws of gravity, and couples are always in love. Chagall’s hypersensitive imagination is palpable as he shares with the viewer his memories of family in brilliantly colored works set amidst the houses and streets of his native Vitebsk. The exhibition runs through November 4, 2012.

November 04, 2012 - New York

David Byron first formed the group with Mick Box - the pair had teamed up in the Stalkers during the mid-'60s, and after the group broke up they assembled Spice with Paul Newton and Alex Napier. Spice evolved into Uriah Heep (the name taken from the Dickens novel David Copperfield) when Ken Hensley joined the band. Before long, the outfit was bonded under the experienced management of Gerry Bron.

Untying Love - Tada! Theater
Through November 04, 2012 - New York

Opalescent Productions is proud to announce the cast for Untying Love, a new drama about the end of life and letting go by Peggy Willens to run at TADA! Theater, 15 West 28th Street, NYC from October 13 to November 4, 2012. Emma Berry directs a cast of eight, including Jed Dickson* (Off B'way: The Mask),Nancy Hess* (B'way: Phantom, Chicago, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Goodbye Girl), Rodrigo Lopresti (TV: The Quarter Life, Connected, The Black Donnelly's), Simon MacLean* (New York: The Crucible (ArcLight), Biography (Mint)), Marie Marshall* (NY: House of Mirth (Metropolitan); LA: Woman of Manhattan, Psychopathia Sexualis (Zoo)), John Mateyko(New York: Seussical), Nancy Nagrant* (New York: Naked in Encino, Family Dinner), and Kyla Schoer* (Off B'way: The Awesome 80's Prom). *Appearing Courtesy of Actors' Equity Association. AEA Approved Showcase. In the tradition of Chekhov and Shepard, Untying Love is a raw and unblinking view into the intimate moment when people embrace the ultimate act of family love. The play is set in a hospice, where Steven’s mother is caught between life and death. He doesn’t know how to help her. Sharing stories, laughter and tears, his quirky family hopes to give his mother a peaceful goodbye, free of pain and fear. Two supportive hospice volunteers provide all the help they can. But something’s in the way. Who’s not letting go, and why? Director Emma Berry described it as “a stunning script of depth, one that requires a first-class caliber of performance. It drew me back to live theater after many years away.” Untying Love can be viewed as a contrasting but complementary piece to the Pulitzer Prize-winning Wit by Margaret Edson, with whom Willens attended high school in Washington, DC. While Wit portrays the experience of a woman, Dr. Vivian Bearing, in the last stages of ovarian cancer, in Untying Love the dying patient remains offstage. And while Witis highly literary, including flashbacks to Dr. Bearing's erudite lectures on the poetry of John Donne, the characters in Willens' play struggle to communicate their most basic hopes, fears and resentments. But the two plays share two themes: that there are times when medical intervention can no longer help, and that there is something in the human experience that cannot be understood through intellect alone. Untying Love is presented in a time when end-of-life issues, palliative care and hospice care are receiving increased attention. Current political debates about Medicare spending touch on the topic both obliquely ? about 25% of Medicare dollars are spent during the last year of a person’s life[1]? and directly, as when the term “death panels” was coined for a proposal to offer Medicare patients voluntary counseling about living wills and end-of-life care options. The provision was deleted from the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Eighty percent of U.S. patients state that they don’t want aggressive intervention and hospitalization once their disease reaches a terminal phase,[2] and yet many people who want to die at home or in hospice do not have that opportunity. The palliative care and hospice communities work to help families acknowledge what’s happening during the dying process while easing patients’ physical and emotional pain. The hospice philosophy is to help people live with dignity in their last days and weeks, with a chance to say their goodbyes and to die in peace. There is, in short, such a thing as a good death. Please note that Untying Love is not a political or “message” play, however. It indelibly portrays one family’s journey through the end-of-life moment. "So many scripts aim to entertain rather than provoke,” Berry said, “and this script is, in its own quiet way, utterly provoking.”
