Panel to Share Challenges of African Americans in WWII - Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum
May 28, 2013 - New York Harbor

THIS PANEL HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FROM MAY 1 TO MAY 28. Award-winning news anchor David Ushery will lead a discussion between Tuskegee Airman Roscoe Brown, USS Mason crewmember Lorenzo DuFau, and Pearl Harbor survivor Clark Simmons about their experiences as African Americans serving in our nation's segregated armed forces during WWII. The battles of World War II were fought on two separate fronts in the European and Pacific Theatres. For the 125,000 African American soldiers who fought overseas, there was a 3rd front with which they had to contend - the prejudice back home. Despite large odds and against common reasoning of the times, black servicemen were able to distinguish themselves in the air, at sea and on land. The Intrepid Museum is proud to honor a few of these men as they share their personal stories in an evening dedicated to African Americans in WWII. Doors open at 5:30pm; discussion begins at 6pm. Free and open to the public but advance reservations are required. RSVP at educationevents@intrepidmuseum.org.

Terre Roche has played guitar since the age of eleven, and with her two sisters, Maggie and Suzzy, produced 12 albums as The Roches, before they decided to pursue separate projects. Terre's first solo album, The Sound of a Tree Falling, was described by Sing Out! as "?luminous?enchantingly hypnotic?playing [that] is both complex and foundational, setting up solid but delicate rhythmic structures for each song on which her vocals can soar."

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 teenartgallery.org.

The Sing for Hope Pianos - throughout the five boroughs at outdoor locations from street-sides to parks
Through June 16, 2013 - The five boroughs

Sing for Hope Pianos works with artists with visions as diverse as their backgrounds to paint pianos and then places them outdoors throughout NYC's five boroughs as part of a public art installation to be enjoyed and played by all. After June 16, the pianos will live on at schools and organizations throughout the city where they can continue to be played and enjoyed. Artists who designed and customized pianos in previous years include fashion designers Dianne Von Furstenberg and Issac Mizrahi, visual artists Julian Schnabel and Scott Taylor and more. The program was founded by Camille Zamora and Monica Yunus, internationally acclaimed sopranos who share a common belief in the power of arts volunteerism to transform underserved communities. Since its launch in 2010 the program has gained the praise and support of notable figures such as Mayor Michael Bloomberg and world-famous Alicia Keys. Sing for Hope Pianos will be amplified by Chobani and while the pairing may seem unusual at first glance, they come together in a well-suited partnership as they align in the important mission to provide access to all, whether that access is rooted in the arts or in good food.

Exhibition: SANA MUSASAMA: My Journey - Clay Art Center
Through June 22, 2013 - Port Chester

Clay Art Center is proud to present "SANA MUSASAMA: My Journey," a solo exhibition that combines art, social justice advocacy, and community arts outreach with New York artist and global citizen, Sana Musasama. The exhibition, which features ceramic sculpture and installation inspired from Musasama's travels around the world, will be on exhibit May 18-June 22, 2013, with an opening reception on Saturday, May 18, from 6-8pm. In conjunction, the artist will be an artist in residence at Clay Art Center for the duration of the exhibit, and Clay Art Center has initiated a string of community arts outreach events entitled, Inspire, Commit, Act... Admission to Clay Art Center is free. In her twenties, when she began traveling, Sana Musasama realized that clay existed all over the world. After her education in the public school system in New York, she felt limited, locked in, and undereducated. Traveling became her way of relearning the world and its inhabitants. Her work is informed by history, women's studies, culture, and her journals of global citizenship. "My Journey," an exhibition of large scale sculpture and installation, will speak of those experiences, from the "Maple Tree" series about the abolitionist movement involved with indigenous Americans, African indentured servants, and Dutch colonialists, and "The Unspeakable" series, an inquiry into the nature of violence and healing in women's lives, to her current work, "The UnKnown/UnNamed" series, which focuses on honoring the lives of those lost to war and genocide. Sana has spent the past 5 years working and traveling in Cambodia. It is there that she found herself in the killing fields, walking on fragments of souls that once were. Sana Musasama's work is grounded in the ceremonies of living. It guards their integrity and memory, and acts as a reliquary of historic events and her personal narratives. In her inquiry into the world, she sought to understand the human landscape. This transformed Sana and her approach to clay. There is no dichotomy between her life and her work, as her extensive traveling has made her relearn seeing. Her mission speaks of a global citizen who walks through the artwork heart first. Inspire, Commit, Act?: Community Events with Sana Musasama. For the duration of the exhibition, Sana will be an Artist in Residence at Clay Art Center, acting as an advocate for her work in the exhibition and the social justice issues it invokes. While in residence, she will also be working on a new body of work. As part of her residency at CAC, Sana will have the opportunity to work with Latino and African-American youth of Westchester County, NY, especially young women, and will be a visual presence for them, inspiring them to commit and act on the belief that they too could be artists, should they want to be. She will be working with Port Chester's Carver Center's NIA group, a young women's leadership group, mostly made up of Latino and African American individuals, Port Chester High School students in CAC's "Around the World in Clay" community arts outreach program, and teen girls from Westhab shelter of Family Coachman Center, which is the largest homeless shelter in Westchester. In addition, Sana will lead three public hands-on workshops in June in the gallery (alongside her artwork). For more details on these workshops, visit clayartcenter.org. ABOUT THE WORK IN THE EXHIBIT About her "Unknown/Unnamed" series, Sana states, "My newest ceramic work was born out of the devastation of the 9/11 attacks and the hundreds of workers and others whose identity was buried under the rubble, the faceless whispers out of concentration camps, the endless mass graves throughout the world. It stems from my global travels to Cambodia, Vietnam and Rwanda - into the homes and hearts of the people I've encountered; these pieces represent their silent voices, which remain unknown and unnamed." "The earth carries the memories built on the backs of oppressed/unrepresented people and their buried bones throughout the world. At My Lai, Vietnam, I walk on the site of a massacre where the lives of hundreds of women and babies were taken in revenge. I touch the soil. At the Holocaust museum, I look at the hundreds of pairs of eye glasses, shoes, gold-capped teeth, and briefcases, and I wonder who they belonged to. In Rwanda, a young woman tells how she searched for her family at a mass burial site. I have worked in Cambodia with former sex slaves, wondering who enslaved them, and walked the killing fields, with their fragments of what once were human beings." "Will it ever stop? These new works are meant to slow us down, make us look closely at our world, silence us for the moment. They are created in homage to the Unknown/Unnamed." Additionally, work from Sana's "Unspeakable" series will be on view. About this challenging and poignant body of work, Sana shares this story: "Twenty-five years ago, while living in Mendeland, Sierra Leone, there was a group of young girls, ages 10-15, who would visit my hut every day. We began our rituals of sisterhood: they combed my hair, tried on my clothing, and applied my makeup. They taught me the formal greetings in Mende, how to sit like a Mende woman, eat with my tongue, and to never allow food to touch my lips. They showed me how to cook on three rocks and wash my clothes in the river, beating on washing stones. They taught me the birth chants, and I learned, too soon, to recognize the death song." "Suddenly, one morning, there were no young girls in the village. They returned thirteen weeks later, changed. Our ritual of sisterhood was no more. They no longer had the sparkle of wonderment in their eyes; they weren't carefree young girls any longer. They didn't want to have anything to do with me. I could not understand. I know now that they were circumcised (incised)." "MY JOURNEY" will also feature two large-scale sculptures from Sana's "Maple Tree" series. These sculptures were inspired by the Maple Tree abolitionist movement in the late 18th century in New York and Holland. Dutch colonists, Native Americans, and free indentured African servants joined together in protest against slave labor on sugar cane plantations in the West Indies. They took as their symbol the maple tree - a source of sugar without exploiting slave labor. At once trees and aspects of the human body, these sculptures explore links between trees and human sexuality, between trees and human agency. Sana Musasama (b. 1957, NYC, lives in Queens, NY) received her BA from City College of New York, NY (1973), her MFA from Alfred (1988), and studied at Mende Pottery, Sierra Leone (1974-75). Feeling undereducated by her public school education, Musasama began traveling as a way to recover identity and cultural place. Clay was a geographic catalyst that brought her first to West Africa, venturing later to Japan, China, and South America. She has continued her quest, expanding her interests to tribal adornment practices in various indigenous cultures. She is challenged by the concerns surrounding the safety of women, specifically the rituals involving rites of passage, female chastity, and the "purification" of the female body. She teaches at Hunter College, NYC; the 92 Street Y, NYC; and through CASES, a program which offers an alternative to incarceration. Clay Art Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit ceramic art organization offering exhibitions, clay classes for adults and children, studio spaces for clay artists and outreach programs in the community. It is located in the heart of Port Chester at 40 Beech Street, Port Chester, NY 10573.

Inclusive Weekend Classes - Children's Museum of the Arts
Through June 30, 2013 - SoHo

An opportunity for children with physical disabilities ages 7 and older and their able-bodied siblings or friends to participate in a drop-off art class together. This program is intended to make the museum's art-making accessible to all needs and provide an opportunity for siblings to spend time with each other and with peers who have similar experiences.If a child with a physical disability doesn't have a sibling to attend the session with him or her, the child may bring along a friend instead. Each session offers a new workshop that is designed to meet the needs of the participants. This program is staffed with CMA teaching artists and a licensed occupational therapist(s). This program is based on a class-like model in which the teaching artists and the OT work to facilitate the group experience, with a keen eye towards the special needs of the participants;?if your child requires dedicated one-on-one attention you should consider bringing a paraprofessional or other adult to help facilitate your child's experience. Parents are encouraged to drop off their children, though they are welcome to stay if they wish or remain close by in another part of the museum. To sign up for a session, discuss your child's needs with the program director in advance of the session. Contact Rachel for more information at rrapoport@cmany.org.
