This is her third lecture at the University. Dr. Grandin is a best-selling author and activist on the topics of autism and animal welfare.

She has spoken world-wide on autism and livestock handling. In 2010, Grandin delivered the TED talk “The world needs all kinds of minds.” Grandin’s own experience with autism has influenced much of her writing on the subject. Her most recent book, The Autistic Brain, focuses on the latest autism research and new diagnosis and treatments. As a consultant for companies with huge slaughterhouse operations, among them Burger King, Wendy’s, McDonald’s, and Swift, Grandin advises on practices that improve animal quality of life. Humane livestock facilities, designed by Grandin, currently make up half of those used in the U.S. and Canada alone. She has authored numerous publications on the livestock industry and animal behavior, including the best-sellers Animals in Translation and Animals Make Us Human. Dr. Grandin became interested in animals while attending a boarding school where they kept dairy cows and horses. This led her to pursue a career as a scientist and livestock equipment manager.

She received her B.A. in psychology from Franklin Pierce College, her M.S. in animal science from Arizona State University, and her Ph.D. in animal science from the University of Illinois. Grandin has appeared on major television programs such as ABC's Primetime Live and 20/20, CBS's 48 Hours, CNN's Larry King Live, NBC's Today Show, and has been featured in People Magazine, The New York Times, Forbes, U.S. News and World Report, and Time Magazine. Among her many achievements are being named in Time Magazine 2012 as one of “The 100 Most Influential People in the World,” receiving the Meritorious Achievement Award from the Livestock Conservation Institute, being named a Distinguished Alumni at Franklin Pierce College and receiving honorary doctorates from McGill University, University of Illinois, and Duke University. In 2010, HBO released the movie, Temple Grandin, based on her life. The movie garnered 15 Emmy Award nominations, and won five including the Emmy for outstanding made for television movie and best actress in a drama (actress Claire Danes). It also won a Golden Globe and Peabody Award. At Adelphi, autism awareness and education is incorporated into campus initiatives and curriculum. In 2006, Adelphi established an Autism Task Force, made up of Adelphi faculty who are experts in the field of autism, with the purpose of discussing and promoting autism-related activities on campus. The Ruth S. Ammon School of Education includes courses on autism as part of its degree programs in special education and offers a graduate certificate program in Autism or Severe or Multiple Disabilities. For Adelphi students with Autism Spectrum Disorders, the Bridges to Adelphi is a multifaceted intervention program that includes coaching, learning strategies, behavioral modeling, and peer mentoring which addresses social, academic and vocational areas.

Through September 25, 2013 - New York

On October 22, 1953, Sixty Years of Living Architecture: The Work of Frank Lloyd Wright opened in New York on the site where the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum would eventually be built.

James Turrell - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through September 25, 2013 - New York

James Turrell's first exhibition in a New York museum since 1980 focuses on the artist's groundbreaking explorations of perception, light, color, and space, with a special focus on the role of site-specificity in his practice. At its core is a major new project that recasts the Guggenheim rotunda as an enormous volume filled with shifting artificial and natural light. One of the most dramatic transformations of the museum ever conceived, the installation reimagines Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic architecture -- its openness to nature, graceful curves, and magnificent sense of space -- as one of Turrell's Skyspaces, referencing in particular his magnum opus Roden Crater (1976-). Reorienting visitors' experiences of the rotunda from above to below, the exhibition gives form to the air and light occupying the museum's central void, proposing an entirely new experience of the building. Other works from throughout the artist's career will be displayed in the museum's Annex Level galleries, offering a complement and counterpoint to the new work in the rotunda. Organized in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, James Turrell comprises one-third of a major retrospective exhibition spanning the United States during summer 2013. This exhibition is curated by Carmen Gimenez, Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, with Nat Trotman, Associate Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

In 1984, the Mozambique of Samora Machel and the South African apartheid state signed the Nkomati accord, a non-aggression pact. The Inkomati (dis)cord is Cekwana and Canda's referral to this failed historical agreement, as well as the river that lent its name to it. In an attempt to break through artificial borders and traverse territories, using their own bodies, skins, identities and histories, the choreographers explore the internalized colonial boundaries that still alienate shared histories and aspirations.

Alice Austen?s groundbreaking portfolio ?Street Types of New York? from 1894, marks her as one of the earliest female street photographers who captured the changing face of the city?s working class just before the turn of the century.

WINGED TAPESTRIES: MOTHS AT LARGE - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 29, 2013 -

Winged Tapestries: Moths at Large, an exhibition of 34 striking images featuring dramatic images of moths, opens at AMNH. On view in the IMAX Corridor on the first floor, the exhibition displays the arresting beauty and surprising diversity of moths from Ottawa-based photographer Jim des Rivières. "Moths are beautiful, and in many respects prettier than butterflies," says exhibition curator David Grimaldi, curator, Division of Invertebrate Zoology. "In this show, we have macro or relatively large moths. They're gorgeous." Primitive moths appeared about 195 million years ago, whereas the oldest butterfly fossil is about 55 million years old. And today, moths outnumber butterflies 15 to 1, with approximately 150,000 described species of moths worldwide, compared to 10,000 butterfly species.

Jack Goldstein x 10,000 - The Jewish Museum
Through September 29, 2013 - New York

The first American retrospective of the Canadian-born artist Jack Goldstein (1945 - 2003) brings to light his important legacy. A teaching assistant for the esteemed conceptual artist John Baldessari and a contemporary of such artists as Cindy Sherman, Sherrie Levine, Laurie Simmons, Barbara Kruger, David Salle and Robert Longo, Goldstein spent his creative years in New York and Southern California and became a central figure in the Pictures Generation of the 1970s and 80s. The artists of this generation explored a new stylistic vocabulary grounded in their interest in popular culture, appropriating images from books, magazines, advertisements, television, and film. This comprehensive exhibition frames Goldstein as a pivotal artist of his generation and showcases his influential paintings and films, while also including installations, ephemera, writings, and pioneering sound recordings. Goldstein transformed, restaged, and remade films in such a way as to strip out specific details, context, and function. Exhibition highlights include his celebrated film of a growling Metro-Goldwyn Mayer lion Another signature work is the film The Jump featuring a leaping diver, performing a somersault and disintegrating into fragments. Given Goldstein's legacy and his increasing relevance to younger artists, this long overdue retrospective is essential to a larger re-evaluation of post-1960s American art. Organized by the Orange County Museum of Art and guest-curated by Philipp Kaiser.

Through September 29, 2013 - Upper West Side

Featuring the work of 14 contemporary artists, this exhibition highlights artists' books inspired by the Hebrew Bible and other sacred Hebrew texts.

Still others explore the boundaries of the single printed page using ages-old techniques such as micrography, illumination, and papercutting.

Front Row: Chinese American Designers - Museum of Chinese in America
Through September 29, 2013 - New York

Front Row traces and celebrates the rise of Chinese American designers who decided to make their marks in New York. In the 1980s, designers such as Anna Sui, Yeohlee Teng, Vera Wang and Vivienne Tam emerged in the New York fashion scene just as the city was transforming its identity from a garment center into one of the fashion capitals of the world. Curiously, the growth of New York's Chinatown, the preponderance of Chinese manufacturers (tailors and seamstresses) in the city's garment district, and the increased outsourcing of garment manufacturing to China, occurred alongside the rapid growth of fashion's creative industries and a broader shift towards creative driven production in New York.
