Raw/Cooked: Marela Zacarias - Brooklyn Museum
Through April 28, 2013 - Brooklyn

The seventh exhibition in the Raw/Cooked series, titled Supple Beat, presents the work of Gowanus-based artist Marela Zacarias. Recommended by Ramirez Jonas, Zacarias has created four site-specific sculptural works inspired by the Williamsburg Murals, uniting her interests in abstract forms, the history of objects, and urban renewal. Her large-scale pieces appear to be climbing the walls of the Museum's first-floor lobby and Great Hall, interacting with the architecture as if they were murals come to life. Zacarias draws on the concept of resilience implied by the Williamsburg Murals and explores the idea of bouncing back from adversity, relating to the history of the public housing project for which the murals were commissioned and the history of the works themselves. She constructs her unique sculptural forms from window screens and joint compound, which she then paints with original patterns. In Supple Beat, Zacarias's patterns are inspired by the related murals-- unique color palettes and geometric forms. Born and raised in Mexico City, Zacarias has painted more than thirty large-scale public murals. She holds an MFA from Hunter College.

April 28, 2013 - New York

For over 40 years, Tower of Power has been creating its own brand of soul music. Since 1968, the band has delivered infectious jams to fans, appearing before sold-out crowds in an annual world tour. TOP's odyssey began in California in 1968 when Emilio Castillo met Stephen "Doc" Kupka. When Doc auditioned during a band rehearsal at Castillio's house, Castillio's father called him into the kitchen and offered the following advice: "Hire that guy, he's got something." Doc and his signature baritone sax sound were now in the band, and on August 13, 1968, Tower of Power, as the world knows it today, began playing gigs and soon became very well known in the Oakland area. After playing at a Tuesday night audition at the Fillmore in 1970, TOP signed to Bill Graham's San Francisco records and recorded its first album East Bay Grease. The band's next album Bump City (1972) was recorded on the Warner Brothers label, and this disc led to a string of hits and memorable albums that include many of the songs that TOP fans come out in force to hear, even to this day: "You're Still A Young Man," "So Very Hard To Go," "Don't Change Horses (In the Middle of the Stream)," "What Is Hip?" and more. In addition, over the years the Tower of Power horns have recorded with hundreds of artists as diverse as Aerosmith, Elton John, Little Feat, Phish, Santana, Heart, and many others, forever infusing the radio airwaves with TOP's musical DNA. Tower of Power celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2008 at a very special reunion show at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, recorded and released as a commemorative live DVD. The performance featured four original band members: Emilio Castillo, Rocco Prestia, Stephen Kupka, and David Garibaldi. To this day, TOP tours the United States, Japan, and Europe every year, playing to sold-out crowds. The band has never been busier or more in demand. New generations continue to come see the band perform as its timeless music never fails to excite fans of all ages.

Educational and fun! Kids of All Ages Can Exhibit Their LEGO creations in a gilded age castle! For the past nine years, Westchester families have participated in the Lyndhurst Family Fun Day. The two-day party allows creative and inquisitive kids to exhibit their LEGO creations in the art and antique-filled rooms of Lyndhurst, a National Historic Landmark and one of the greatest houses of 19th-century America. "Lyndhurst Family Fun Day allows us to develop a future generation of kids that will understand the connection between creativity and great architecture. By allowing budding artists to display their LEGO creations in rooms filled with priceless art and antiques, we help create an awareness of aesthetics in the young," noted Howard Zar, executive director at Lyndhurst. Parents like the event as there is no judging to participate. Even the smallest or least nimble children can gain confidence by having their creations exhibited in beautiful period rooms. It is not uncommon to see exhibitors bringing their families and friends, and the pride as they show off their exhibited work is evident. Exhibitors are provided a badge and four free passes to the show. Any child who signs up by April 5th at lyndhurst.org/lego, and brings his or her creation to Lyndhurst on Saturday or Sunday, April 21st and 22nd between 1pm and 3pm, is allowed to exhibit in the mansion. The event is also great fun for those who don't exhibit, as the grounds are full of play and exhibition opportunities by local LEGO clubs and vendors. Young kids enjoy the LEGO trainscape built by members of I LUG New York. The brand new LEGOLAND Discovery Center will offer the chance to build with master builder Mike T and play in the LEGO play pit. The staff of BRICK KIDS will help kids build a castle or construct and race wacky cars. Older kids from area high schools will display their robotics creations. Numerous food, toy, and vintage or new LEGO vendors will be on hand to complete the day. As always, kids can enter a raffle to win free LEGO prizes and passes to the new LEGOLAND Discovery Center. Sponsorship for this event has been provided by ARTSWestchester and other area businesses. Kids of all ages are invited to exhibit their LEGO creations in the historic Lyndhurst mansion. Sculptures must be created in advance. Deadline to register as an exhibitor is April 5, 2013. For complete event information and exhibitor registration form, visit lyndhurst.org/LEGO.
