'Flying Monsters' - American Musem of Natural History, LeFrak Theater
Through January 04, 2013 - Upper West Side

"Flying Monsters" is a new giant screen adventure about the awe-inspiring world of a group of reptiles who ruled the skies about 220 million years ago. Produced by award-winning Atlantic Productions and distributed by National Geographic Entertainment, the film follows world-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough as he sets out to uncover the truth about the enigmatic pterosaurs, who, after insects, were the first creatures to fly. Attenborough, who wrote and narrates the film, works with scientists and engineers to try and understand how and why pterosaurs flew, traveling to New Mexico's "Ghost Ranch," Big Bend National Park in Texas, Lyme Regis in the United Kingdom, an ancient pterosaur landing site in Southern France, a fossil pit in Germany where near-perfect pterosaur specimens have been found, and China's remote Liaoning Province in search of answers. How did creatures the size of giraffes with a wingspan of 45 feet fly through the air? The audience will be immersed in the world of the pterosaur and experience the enormous challenges these creatures faced to survive, let alone flourish, in prehistoric skies. The film will introduce viewers to Dimorphodon, the earliest known pterosaur with a complete fossil, Darwinopterus, which, with a lighter build than Dimorphodon, had a wingspan of 2.3-3.3 feet, Tapejara, which may have configured its body to sail across the ocean in search of prey, and Quetzalcoatlus, which, with a wingspan of 33-40 feet and an 8-foot-long beak, is the biggest known animal that has ever flown. Flying Monsters 3D won a BAFTA award in 2011 from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in the Specialist Factual category, Best 3D Program at the 2011 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, and Best Science Film from the Association of International Broadcasting. The film will screen at the museum through January 4, 2013. Entrance to the museum is included in movie ticket price.

Following three consecutive sold-out performances in 2012, the PBR returns to New York City for the seventh consecutive year to open the 2013 elite Built Ford Tough Series season and kick-off the 20th anniversary of PBR competition. Two decades ago, 20 cowboys with one dream transformed bull riding into a global sports phenomenon that is now televised worldwide. Their vision and determination made PBR one of the fastest growing sports in history which has awarded over $120 million dollars in prize money over to date. The 20th Anniversary celebration includes stops in at least 15 different states over 27 events on the 2013 Built Ford Tough Series tour. This seventh annual event, the Monster Energy Invitational, will feature the Top 35 bull riders in the world and the country's fiercest bucking bulls. Fans will be able to experience three action-packed nights of intense 8-second rides and outrageous wrecks as 150-pound cowboys – including 2012 MSG Invitational Champion Cody Nance and reigning World Champion Silvano Alves – have their chance in the arena against their 2,000-pound opponents. The PBR is the world's premier bull riding organization. 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of PBR competition. In just two decades, the dream of 20 bull riders has become a global sports phenomenon that is televised worldwide. More than 100 million viewers annually watch primetime PBR programming on networks around the world and nearly two million fans attend Built Ford Tough Series and Touring Pro Division events each year. 25 riders have earned over $1 million each, including Justin McBride with $5.5 million – the most of any Western-sports athlete in history. PBR World Champion Silvano Alves also reached $2 million in 23 months and 58 events, which is faster than any bull rider in history. The Built Ford Tough Series will make 26 stops around the U.S. before the Built Ford Tough World Finals in Las Vegas on Oct. 23-27, 2013. The World Finals are where the PBR World Champion will be crowned and awarded the coveted championship buckle and a $1 million bonus. Known as the richest bull riding event to take place, the World Finals awards over $2 million to participating riders each year. Prior to PBR, there was not a bull rider who earned $1 million during their career, including eight-time world champion Donnie Gray. Top-ranked rodeo bull riders could earn $100,000 at most in a season, compared to 20 or more riders earning over $100,000 apiece in each of the last seven years of PBR. In 2011, 22 riders earned over $100,000, 10 of which won more than $200,000. PBR has awarded over $120 million dollars in prize money over 20 years of competition.

Creatures of Light: Nature's Bioluminescence - American Museum of Natural History
Through January 06, 2013 - New York

The perpetually dark deep ocean comprises the vast majority of the planet's habitable environments where approximately 90 percent of the organisms are bioluminescent and provide the only source of light. Many of these environments are threatened habitats where organisms are in danger of disappearing, some before they have been discovered and studied. Creatures of Light introduces visitors to the astonishing variety of bioluminescent creatures; explores the different ways in which organisms glow, as well as explains the physics and chemistry of natural light; reveals how the ability to glow can be advantageous; and considers how scientists study -- and use -- bioluminescence. Visitors enter the exhibition through a forest of bioluminescent mushrooms surrounding a large-scale mushroom at the center. One section evokes a New England meadow on a summer night and highlights how fireflies use patterns of flashing light to communicate and attract mates; another invites visitors to peer into Waitomo Cave of New Zealand and learn how glowworms attract prey. The exhibition includes live flashlight fish that harbor bioluminescent bacteria. Creatures of Light also features an interactive environment that introduces visitors to the brilliant light displays of Mosquito Bay in Vieques, Puerto Rico, where high concentrations of microscopic dinoflagellates, a type of plankton, create a glowing, luminescent halo around anything that moves through the bay; and a large interactive image of the Bloody Bay coral wall in the Cayman Islands. A "deep sea theater" reveals the amazing diversity of living light that marine biologists have captured on camera including anglerfishes waving bioluminescent "lures" to attract prey and jellyfishes that light up like a flashing pinwheel when threatened.

Origami Holiday Tree - American Museum of Natural History
Through January 06, 2013 - New York

An annual Museum tradition, the delightfully decorated Origami Holiday Tree has marked the start of the holiday season at the Museum for more than 30 years. Volunteers begin folding in July to complete the 500 creations that will be displayed on the tree. During the holiday season, volunteers will be on hand to teach visitors of all ages the art of origami folding. The theme of this year's 13-foot tree is Museum Collections, with ornaments inspired by current exhibitions Spiders Alive!, Creatures of Light: Nature's Bioluminescence, and the upcoming 2013 exhibition Whales: Giants of the Deep. The Origami Holiday Tree will display models folded by local, national, and international origami artists. Expect to see a pod of whales, a cluster of spiders, a barrel of monkeys, a flight of butterflies, a flock of birds, a school of fish, a large herd of dinosaurs, and more.

Creatures of Light: Nature's Bioluminescence - American Museum of Natural History
Through January 06, 2013 - Upper West Side

This exhibition features the extraordinary organisms that produce light, from the flickering fireflies found in backyards across the Northeast to the alien deep-sea fishes that illuminate the perpetually dark depths of the oceans. Rare among plants and animals that live on land, the ability to glow--that is, generate light through a chemical reaction--is much more common in the ocean, where up to 90 percent of animals at depths below 700 meters are bioluminescent, including many unknown to science. Like the crystal jelly whose glow led to a revolution in cell biology, these animals may hold important clues to essential questions, but scientists are in a race against time as habitats are increasingly threatened by pollution, overfishing, and global climate change. Visitors will move through a series of re-created environments, from the familiar to the extreme, to explore the diversity of organisms that glow and how they do it; discover the variety of ways in which light is used to attract a mate, lure unsuspecting prey, or defend against a predator; and learn how, where, and why scientists study this amazing natural phenomenon. Throughout the exhibition, iPads featuring videos, infographics, photo albums, and animations will provide opportunities to hear directly from researchers about their work. Starting in a local meadow on "a summer's night," where fireflies use unique patterns of flashing light to communicate with potential mates, visitors will descend into "a mysterious cave" in New Zealand to watch a fantastic spectacle of luminescent "fishing lines" strung by larval gnats (glowworms) to trap prey. A unique interactive environment in "a sparkling sea" will introduce the brilliant light displays of Mosquito Bay on Puerto Rico's Vieques Island, where high concentrations of microscopic dinoflagellates, a type of plankton, create a halo around anything that moves through the water. Visitors will activate the bioluminescent bay as they move through this section. "The night dive" will feature a large-scale, day-and-night interactive image of the Cayman Islands' Bloody Bay Wall, a remarkable coral wall that is home to both bioluminescent and biofluorescent animals, which glow only after exposure to light. In "altered light," visitors will encounter the jellyfish Aequorea victoria, which combines bioluminescence with biofluorescence (in which an organism's molecules absorb blue light, then radiate it at a lower energy, longer wavelength) to emit flashes of green light. The protein found in its light organs, known as the green fluorescent protein (GFP), has become a critical tool in cellular and developmental biology, used for mapping neural circuits, observing cancer cells, and much more. Borrowed Light will feature live flashlight fishes, which harbor bioluminescent bacteria in an organ under their eyes, and highlight symbiotic relationships. "The deep ocean" will take visitors into the perpetually dark deep ocean, which comprises the vast majority of the planet's habitable space. A deep sea theater will reveal the diversity of animals that marine biologists have captured on camera, including female anglerfishes waving bioluminescent "lures" to attract prey and mates, and jellyfishes that light up like a flashing pinwheel when threatened.

Spiders Alive! - American Museum of Natural History
Through January 06, 2013 - New York

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.

Colors of the Universe - Chinese Hardstone Carving - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through January 06, 2013 -

Stone carving is one of the oldest arts in China, its beginnings dating back to remote antiquity. Although jade, the mineral nephrite, was held in the highest esteem, all stones that could achieve a luster after polishing, be it agate, turquoise, malachite, chalcedony, quartz, jasper, or lapis lazuli, were also appreciated. Stone carving experienced an efflorescence during the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), when an abundant supply of raw materials, exceptionally accomplished craftsmen, and, in particular, keen imperial patronage contributed to the creation of numerous superb works.

Ada Bobonis: Stages, Mountains, Water - Queens Museum of Art
Through January 06, 2013 - Queens

Ada Bobonis' site-specific installation entitled Stages, Mountains, Water transforms the Museum's second floor gallery space into an invigorating chromatic environment evoking the Caribbean landscape. Geometric compositions in hues of blue and green are either painted on the wall or adhered to the glass railing facade in the form of translucent color film. Alluding to horizons and vistas, expansive bodies of land and water, the work takes its inspiration from the Panama Canal, one of the icons of 19th century aspirations for the New World. The construction of the Panama Canal (1880 - 1914) was a historical triumph of international ambition at the turn of the century. Upon completion, the 51-mile-long ship canal connected the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean by cutting across the Isthmus of Panama, and has since become a key conduit for global maritime trade. The area's topography is characterized by vast mountain vistas, the Gatun Lake, and the presence of the Panama Canal Locks (long vertical barriers of different sizes controlling the passage of over-sized ships), and is a spectacular fusion of the natural world and man's interventions upon it. Stages, Mountains, Water deftly renders the peculiar landscape of the Panama Canal in a minimal composition of color and shapes. While the color-treated glass railing facade creates an evocative aquatic effect, the "cloud of blades" overhead ? clustered sculptural cutouts spanning the gallery's ceiling - symbolizes man's forceful intercession in the natural landscape that profoundly altered the location. The installation further brings the view of Flushing Meadows Corona Park and the Unisphere, a 140-foot-high steel representation of Earth built as an emblem for the 1964 World's Fair, into the gallery space itself. Separated by exactly half a century, the Panama Canal and the Unisphere - both products of the state-of-the-art engineering of their time - echo each other with the timeless human aspiration for exploration they embody, whether by taming the power of the oceans or spanning the infinite reaches of outer space.

Chinese Gardens - Pavilions, Studios, Retreats - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through January 06, 2013 -

In the densely populated urban centers of China, enclosed gardens have long been an integral part of residential and palace architecture, serving as extensions of living quarters. The preferred site for hosting literary gatherings, theatrical performances, and imaginary outings, gardens were often designed following the same compositional principles used in painting. And as idealized landscapes, gardens often drew inspiration from literary themes first envisioned by painters. Not only were painters often recruited to design gardens, but as gardens came to be identified with the tastes and personalities of their residents, artists were also called upon to create idealized paintings of gardens to serve as symbolic portraits intended to reflect the character of the owner. This exhibition, which encircles the Astor Chinese Garden Court, explores the pictorial imagery of gardens as an abiding source of artistic invention. Featuring more than sixty paintings, as well as ceramics, carved bamboo, lacquerware, metalwork, textiles, and several contemporary photographs from the Museum's collection, the exhibition examines the rich interactions between pictorial and garden arts in China across more than one thousand years.

Quay Brothers: On Deciphering the Pharmacist's Prescription for Lip-Reading Puppets - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 07, 2013 - Midtown

This MoMA gallery exhibition and accompanying film retrospective will be the first presentation of the Quay Brothers' work in all their fields of creative activity. Internationally renowned moving image artists and designers, the Quay Brothers were born outside Philadelphia and have worked from their London studio, Atelier Koninck, since the late 1970s. For over 30 years, they have been in the avant-garde of stop-motion puppet animation and live-action movie-making in the Eastern European tradition of filmmakers like Walerian Borowczyk and Jan Svankmajer and the Russian Yuri Norstein, and have championed a design aesthetic influenced by the graphic surrealism of Polish poster artists of the 1950s and 1960s. Beginning with their student films in 1971, the Quay Brothers have produced over 45 moving image works, including two features, music videos, dance films, documentaries, and signature personal works, including The Street of Crocodiles (1986), the Stille Nacht series (1988-2008), Institute Benjamenta (1995), and In Absentia (2000). They have also designed sets and projections for opera, drama, and concert performances such as Tchaikovsky's Mazeppa (1991), Ionesco's The Chairs (Tony-nominated design, 1997), Richard Ayre's The Cricket Recovers (2005), and recent site-specific pieces based on the work of Bart?k and Kafka. In addition to their better known films, this exhibition will include never-before-seen moving image works and graphic design, drawings, and calligraphy, presenting animated and live-action films alongside installations, objects, and works on paper.

Nybelwyck Hall: A Mansion in Miniature - Hudson River Museum - Glenview
Through January 08, 2013 - Yonkers

Nybelwyck Hall, a dollhouse representing Lilliputian life at its most luxurious, makes its appearance in Glenview, the Museum's 1897 river home. The 24-room, granite-and-mortar Glenview, and Nybelwyck, the 24-room dollhouse, share architectural features - a Great Hall and a double staircase that curves from the top floor down to the Hall. Nybelwyck's central facade is loosely based on the Hudson River estate, Staatsburg, the Ogden Mills House. The orange-and-green colors on its Victorian addition are reminiscent of Wilderstein, in Rhinebeck, the family home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's personal secretary. Dollhouse enthusiast Mark O'Banks created Nybelwyck Hall over the course of a decade and looked to the wisdom of a ouija board to name his creation. The house is furnished with found objects in its 24 rooms, as well as rugs O'Banks designed. Among its 900 objects are minute musical instruments that play, doors with intricate locks that work, and a tiny dollhouse within the dollhouse's nursery.

'Illusion' - Able Fine Art NY Gallery
Through January 08, 2013 - New York

Able Fine Art NY Gallery is pleased to present a group show featuring the works of three diverse artists: Hisako Kobayashi, Jin-Seob Yun, and Denise Petit Caplan. Each artist’s unique style is vibrantly abstract and expressive with a strong sense of harmony, feeling, and dynamism. Hisako Kobayashi’s hard-worked colorful surfaces, reminiscent of Mark Rothko and Bruce Marden, portray an emotional and poetic process that embody harmony in the disarray of nature. Her lighter colors reflect the quality of light and achieve a feeling of translucency. Kobayashi’s abstract multi-layered paintings reflect impulses of dynamism and feeling while creating a three-dimensional accord. Jin-Seob Yun plays with vivid color by creating modern figures with color fabrics and strings that similarly illustrate various feelings and emotions but in a playful manner. Yun’s work has been described as both allegoristic and comical while addressing the clashes of desire and illusion one searches for in life. As a classically trained artist, Denise Petit Caplan uses a broad spectrum of mediums in dynamic layers to create glowing harmonious multi-media works full of color and expression. Her multicultural exposure and her career in Decorative Textiles have influenced her focus in fine art and have helped enrich her work through experience.
