Kinsey Sicks - Metropolitan Room
Through August 23, 2017 - New York

Andrea Bell Wolff - Metropolitan Room
August 23, 2017 - New York

Andrea Bell Wolff Andrea Bell Wolff, the delightful singer-actress, has appeared in Broadway shows, on Las Vegas stages, on television; she was even the audience warm-up girl for the "Ed Sullivan Show" in the late 1960's! Miss Bell Wolff has been in real show biz for the past 50 (yes!) years, yet she looks and acts incredibly youthful – and sounds, it, too. While Andrea Bell Wolff stands at a diminutive 4'-11," she has a soaring professional career which began at age 17 and never stopped until she received the role of a lifetime—wife and mother. Her countless credits include her performing on stage, on television, and in Las Vegas – appearing in the renowned Bottoms up Revue at Caesars Palace. Her theatre credits include a record-setting number of performances as Ermengarde and Minnie Fay in Hello Dolly!, (Broadway and National Tours) where she worked with Carol Channing, Ethel Merman, Dorothy Lamour, Betty Grable and Phyllis Diller. Other credits include: The Imaginary Invalid with E.G. Marshall and Ruby Dee; and Grease, opposite Andrea McArdle. From appearing on the Ed Sullivan show with Your Fathers Mustache Band to fronting several rock bands, Andrea Bel Wolff proved to be quite talented and limitless. Upon coming back to (off-) Broadway, Miss Bell Wolff starred in her co-written and self-produced show Loose Screws,, where she appeared at the Laurie Beechman Theater in June, 2011 in the musical about the fictional and risqué biographical journey of also-ran entertainer named Chelsea Sutton Place. Going from a wild ride with imaginary characters in "Loose Screws" to "Back to Basics", Miss Bell-Wolff is philosophical, yet full of mirth about her career, what she has seen then, and what she is seeing and doing now: "When I was first in show business, I was a singer. I sang torch songs. Standards. A lot of Broadway show tunes. I then got away from show tunes. I danced. Then I started acting. I did many character voices. Singing went by the wayside. So, I decided, it is time that I got back to what I should be doing, get "Back to Basics", Andrea says. Andrea Bell Wolff will sing beautiful torch songs, great songbook standards and some solid Broadway fare when she brings "Back to Basics" to New York's Metropolitan Room on Saturday, October 25th at 4 PM. Miss Bell Wolff is also proud and happy to be singing three songs written by Francesca Blumenthal: "Lives of Handsome Men", "Move in with Me" and "How is it for you?"", all words and music that explore relationships. Miss Bell Wolfe knows the story behind these songs: "I will be singing and telling stories about love and relationships. Life takes you there, to love and relationships, as you get older." she explains. "People have asked me, 'Why, at this age, are you singing again? Are you doing this?' I just say 'Because I can. And I think that I should. I have a lot to give and I have loved to entertain my entire life. If my audience can forget their troubles when they join me for a moment in time, why not?" Miss Bell Wolfe asks. Barry Leavitt is joining Andrea Bell Wolff as her Musical Director and accompanist. The veteran Musical Director and arranger has played for such greats as Rosemary Clooney, Marilyn Michaels, Debbie Gravitte and Jack Jones. Rounding out the quartet led by Mr. Leavitt will be Tom Hubbard on bass, Jack Cravale on guitar and Jerome Jennings on drums. The event promises to be a spirited one, and it is suggested to make your reservation early. Getting "Back to Basics" with Andrea Bell Wolfe sounds just like the thing to do on a Saturday afternoon.

Suzanne Santo of Honeyhoney - Mercury Lounge
August 23, 2017 - New York

Caught halfway between the dark swoon of pop-noir, the raw rasp of soul music, and the honest punch of Americana, Suzanne Santo's Ruby Red tells the story of a singer, songwriter, and mul-ti-instrumentalist who, more than 10 years into an acclaimed career, is turning a new corner. Produced by multi-platinum Grammy nominee Butch Walker (whose Los Angeles recording stu-dio gives the album its name), Ruby Red marks Santo's first release as a solo artist. For the past decade, she's spent most of her time fronting the Americana duo HONEYHONEY, whittling her banjo, violin, and vocal chops into sharp shape along the way. Here, she takes a break from that longtime gig to explore something different, creating a moody, sexually-charged album filled with organic instruments, distorted fiddle, Walker's powerful electric guitar, and Santo's most stunning vocal performances to date. "I think I started writing songs for this record long before I realized that I was writing songs for this record," said Santo. "I've identified with a collaboration for so long that the thought of taking a leap into the depths of my own music and having no idea what that would look like, definitely came as a shock. I was getting lazy and not finishing the tasks at hand like I really wanted, deep down, to be able to do. Writing this record was bewitching in a way." Before they collaborated on Ruby Red, Santo made multiple appearances on Butch Walker's eighth album, Stay Gold. She joined him on the road, too, singing harmonies and playing violin, guitar, and banjo during a nationwide tour in 2016. During breaks in her touring schedule, she be-gan diving into a different type of songwriting, looking to diverse albums by Erykah Badu, David Bowie, Townes Van Zandt, and the Alabama Shakes for inspiration. For years, she'd always been somebody else's bandmate. This was a time to explore her own identity. To write her own music. To ignore genres and defy expectations. To determine what, exactly, she wanted to say. . .and find out the best way to deliver it. "Once Butch acquiesced to producing the record, I had an 'oh shit!' moment where I realized that I needed to really show up," continued Santo. "I had to have songs that were finished, let alone good enough. I couldn't stop and I wrote all day every day to finish the songs I'd started years ago as well as the few that presented themselves in the 4th quarter. I took long walks in my neighborhood and listened to demos on my cell phone and worked out lyrics. I would also wake up in the middle of the night with new ideas and would get up and write them down or record them. It felt like the songs were seeping through the cracks of my mind and out of my mouth, without much of my consent. I think art is a channel, connected to something much greater than we are and I feel honored when it picks me from time to time." Ruby Red is an album about love, life, and lust in the modern world. Moody and melody-driven, its 11 songs range from "Handshake" — the record's epic opening track, equal parts Southern-gothic anthem and slow-burning soul ballad — to the driving "Ghost in my Bed," which pairs an explosive chorus with layers of mandolin, fiddle, and piano. Meanwhile, tracks like "Better Than That" focus on little more than Santo's voice: an electrifying, elastic instrument that's capable of both vulnerability and ferocity. Santo and Walker recorded Ruby Red quickly, pulling long hours in Walker's bright, sunlit studio in Southern California. The instrumental tracks were captured live, with help from guests like pe-dal steel player Dr. Stephen Patt — Santo's primary care physician, as well as a former member of the Edgar Winter Group — and drummer Mark Stepro. Santo kept the guest list small, though, splitting the bulk of the instrumental duties with Walker. "It was incredible to work with Butch. He facilitates a great time and an artistic environment that orbits solely around what's best for the song, which is so rare in a business full of egos. Butch and this environment liberated and enabled me to work in a way that I never knew I was capable of." Although Ruby Red marks the start of something new, it doesn't signify the end of Santo's long run with HONEYHONEY. Santo will join bandmate Ben Jaffe in the television series The Guest Book, whose episodes feature the two musicians in acting and musical roles. The show premi-eres on TBS during the latter half of 2017, adding another bullet point to the acting career Santo launched years before HONEYHONEY's formation. Santo's story is still unfolding. This is the newest chapter, bringing with it a track list that doubles down on the songwriter's strengths and stretches her limits. There will be more chapters to ex-plore. More colorful stories to tell. But for now, Suzanne Santo's future is looking Ruby Red. "This record is so fucking sexy, I can't deal," said Walker. "Proud to have been in the room when these songs were going down. Put it on and turn out the lights."

Wade Bowen - Mercury Lounge
August 23, 2017 - New York

Across five independent albums and a decade-plus of touring, Wade Bowen has amassed a string of regional hits and awards, and also a fan base who is passionate about music. Indeed, in the fourteen years since Bowen launched his career at Stubb's Barbecue in Lubbock, Texas, he's risen from collegiate greenhorn to the top of the Texas music and Red Dirt circuit. His colleagues and friends Pat Green, Jack Ingram, Eli Young Band and others had made the major-label leap, helping to take a vibrant regional sound to the rest of America. Now Bowen is poised to bring that Red Dirt and independent spirit to country music at large. Wade's baritone is dense and concentrated, with traces of whisky and smoke and an autumnal warmth. Bowen takes command of his songs, cutting over the top of producer Justin Niebank's sculpted guitar-scapes on his latest release "The Given." The sound is one hundred percent country, rife with pedal steel and vivid emotion, but it's also music that could easily find a home with fans of Bowen's rock idols – folks like Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne. Take a few passes through this project and you'll hearing a singer's singer and a focused songwriter who's adding layers to his music all the time. On a live circuit where the overwhelming mandate is to stir up a party, Bowen has aimed to leave folks with a memory. As a writer, even one from a state with some tall literary traditions, he's not trying to earn a PhD in poetry; he's trying to communicate. "My style," he says, "is more to try to evoke an emotion. I'm more about trying to leave a mark on people." Growing up in Waco, Bowen's exposure to the music of Texas was limited to whatever made it on FM country radio. George Strait was king. Guy Clark was a name he'd not have recognized before getting to college. But at school, in Lubbock, he discovered the full spectrum of Texas artistry, starting with Robert Earl Keen. "He was a big changing point in my life," says Wade. "I realized by listening to him that there was way more out there than I ever knew. So I started getting into Guy Clark and other great Texas music. But I was obsessed with Robert Earl. When we started the band we were sort of a Robert Earl cover band." That band was called West 84, and they found that with their large posse of friends who'd always show up for a good time, it was easy to land gigs. Bowen meanwhile began to channel a lifelong love of writing into songs, and when college ended he made two major decisions. He took on the role of solo artist, and he moved to Austin. By then, about 2001, fellow Waco native Pat Green had busted out to national prominence and the Texas music phenomenon was the buzz of Nashville. It was part of Wade Bowen's inspiration to charge ahead. Try Not To Listen is the album Wade regards as his true debut, the project that kicked off a life and living made of 200-plus nights a year on the road and patient grassroots fan development. Then with Lost Hotel in 2006, things really began to click. The opening track "God Bless This Town" reached No. 1 on the bellwether Texas Music Chart, and to date, Bowen has had a total of 10 Number 1's and 15 Top 5 Singles on the Texas Music Chart. He achieved another landmark in 2010, when he was invited to add his name to the roster of great artists who've made a Live At Billy Bob's CD/DVD combo at the iconic club in Fort Worth.

August 23, 2017 - New York

Safro-Rock singer/songwriter, guitarist and producer Mthakathi, conjures up music that is undeniably and unflinchingly Rock, but bespeaks a more prismatic World sensibility. It is music that draws from a lifelong immersion in South African culture; music that reflects a keen absorption of eclectic world elements; music that explores expression beyond borders; and music that rocks. An innovative song-smith, compelling lyricist, arresting guitarist, magical live-looper and a spell-binding performer, Mthakathi – the "wizard," the "witch doctor" the "magic man," the "inyanga who mixes things that shouldn't be mixed"- is an artist of world citizenry, one who defies the confines of simple categorization and smudges the boundaries of culture, genre and time.

August 23, 2017 - Brooklyn

Emancipation. Damnation. Blasphemy. Ecstasy. Vengeance. Deliverance. Rebellion. Liberation. Consider this your invitation to the transcendent, transfiguring Satanic Spirituals of «Devil Is Fine». Nothing released this year is as strange, inscrutable or wonderful than Zeal & Ardor's «Devil Is Fine»» extols US Rolling Stone, hailing the debut album as «a dream world of infinite possibilities.» The creation of Swiss-American songwriter/soundscaper Manuel Gagneux, «Devil Is Fine» is an artistic artefact like no other, a meld of black metal, field recordings, Delta blues, jazz, ring shouts, music box melodies, glitchy hip-hop beats, soul and gospel, brought together in the service of The One With Horns. It is the most provocative, challenging, innovative and utterly individual album of the year, a recording which obliterates genre boundaries and creates a dark, diabolical universe all its own.

Bonobo - Brooklyn Steel
August 23, 2017 - New York

Migration is an album that, behind its poised structures and dreamy textures, is built out of turmoil. Simon Green, over more than a decade and a half, has come from humble beginnings as an eclectic DJ in Brighton, on the English south coast, to being one of the world's biggest electronic acts. This in turn left him essentially rootless and without a real place to call home for almost three years as he toured his previous album The North Borders around the world. Pieced together and composed on the road, then taken into various studios to add the many brilliant instrumentalists and vocalists who add to its richness and complexity, Migration is the sound of a world in flux. Where some can find the itinerant touring lifestyle draining and confusing, for Si it became a chance to observe micro and macro –local and global – aspects of 21st century life, to connect them to his own emotional experiences, and to remind himself that this dizzying world is still made up of real people's individual stories. In all of that, it has become, perhaps, an album for our times. We live in a period of sometimes terrifying uncertainty, where all too often people are tempted to retreat into their own shuttered-off realities, or to seek easy answers in shouted slogans and false promises. Migration, on the other hand, is an embrace of uncertainty and contradiction, and most importantly of all, even though its scope is epic, it is full of conviction that small ideas, questions, doubts, and stories really matter. Blissful it may often be, but escapist it isn't. Along with the likes of Caribou, Floating Points, Four Tet and Flying Lotus, Si is flying the flag for modernist music that can be both widely accessible and exploratory, that can reach those arena-sized audiences yet still touch individuals deeply and specifically on emotional and intellectual levels. From all that turmoil, he has provided a timely reminder that artistry, introspection and a gentle, personal touch still have value and power in a difficult world.

Derrick Hodge - Blue Note
August 23, 2017 - New York

Live Today signals a new journey for bassist and composer Derrick Hodge as he embarks on a solo recording career. The title alludes to his top guiding principle in creating his debut album, a stunning achievement that showcases the profound depth and breadth of his musicality. "This whole album was putting on my composer's hat, but letting go and making sure that I'm giving people raw examples of how I feel on any given day," he explains. Even though Hodge has played with such jazz titans as pianist Mulgrew Miller and trumpeter (and labelmate) Terence Blanchard, as well as R&B stars Jill Scott and Maxwell, the 33-year-old bassist is probably best known for anchoring the Grammy award-winning Robert Glasper Experiment. Similar to how Glasper concocts a distinctive mélange of modern jazz, hip-hop, and R&B, Live Today too integrates those genres and more into something that's potent and personal. However, it is no Experiment offshoot. Similarities aside, the Live Today asserts a unique sound. Glasper does contribute on several songs on Live Today, as do the rest of the Experiment members: saxophonist/vocoderist Casey Benjamin, and drummers Chris Dave and Mark Colenburg. Hodge, however, cast a wider net for recruiting musicians. The diverse cast includes rapper Common, singer/guitarist, Alan Hampton, keyboardists James Poyser and Aaron Parks, saxophonist Marcus Strickland, trumpeter Keyon Harrold, and the American String Quartet, among others. As a bassist, Hodge tucks in his virtuosic prowess to focus more on the overall compositional sound. "I didn't think so much about the timbre and the sound of the actual instrument that I play when I wrote this music," he says, "I gravitated toward the band sound and worked within that framework." Live Today culminates all of Hodge's experiences working with various jazz and R&B artists, resulting in music that's at once adventurous yet accessible, and more important extremely personal. "I wanted to be honest and transparent to all of the people who were supporting me and wishing me well," Hodge says, "I wanted this album to give them real snapshots of how I felt as an artist at a given moment on a given day. Let them be a part of my journey."

The concert will also feature video interviews with activists from across the country–from an indigenous youth water protector at Standing Rock, to one of the co- chairs of the Women's March on Washington, to a coal-country cultural worker in Virginia.

Bacon Brothers (Meet & greet available separately) - City Winery
Through August 23, 2017 - New York

Long before Kevin Bacon launched his prolific stage and screen career, and before Michael Bacon became known as a go-to composer for film and television, they were just two brothers, born nine years apart, coming of age in Center City Philadelphia. By the late 1960s, Michael, already a professional musician, would gig with his band at the city's famed Electric Factory with a young Kevin tagging along when he could. It's a time preserved in the cover art for The Bacon Brothers' latest, New Year's Day, with a preteen Kevin singing alongside a mandolin-strumming Michael. The record, laden with the brothers' trademark gritty rock and a touch of Philly soul, hearkens back to those roots in the City of Brotherly Love, when life was less complicated and music filled the air.

Like compact Cubist paintings, their songs are jarring, dizzying, and totally thrilling. ODD Dark-punk band from Montreal. Urchin Raw Punk/HC from New York area, featuring members of Narcoleptics and Razorheads. "Damn good Demo with elements of raw and fast crust/d-beat!" "Grab it, play it loud !!!!!"

Soundbath with Dawoud Spiral Music - Rubin Museum
August 23, 2017 - New York

Spiral Music presents acoustic music every Wednesday evening at the base of the Museum's spiral staircase. Artists who specialize in music from the Himalayas and South Asia are invited to forge a connection between their music and the art in the galleries. Composer and improviser Dawoud has performed at the Rubin on many occasions, either in a duet for the Spiral Music series or with larger groups such as the Brooklyn Raga Massive All Stars. These performances have included improvisations on his compositions, Indian ragas, and themes both contemporary and ancient. Now, Dawoud is going to do something a little different. The immersive, site-specific installation Le Corps Sonore, created by electronic sound artists Éliane Radigue, Laetitia Sonami, and Bob Bielecki, is featured at the Spiral staircase in the Rubin as part of The World Is Sound exhibition. On August 2 and August 23 (both Wednesday nights), Dawoud will offer an unprecedented musical performance in conjunction with the exhibit. The World is Sound is made possible through the generosity of HARMAN. Major support is provided by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and Rasika and Girish Reddy.

New Cicada Trio Meditative Singing and Ecstatic Improvisation - Rubin Museum
August 23, 2017 - New York

The deep listening methods of the late Pauline Oliveros have influenced artists across mediums for decades.

As a member of David Hykes and the Harmonic Choir, Hill was a pioneer in the art of harmonic singing, prompting The New York Times critic Robert Palmer to praise him as "a virtuoso of the Tibetan chanting technique." Musician and philosopher David Rothenberg wrote Why Birds Sing, Bug Music, Survival of the Beautiful, and many other books, published in at least eleven languages. He has recorded 16 albums, including One Dark Night I Left My Silent House on ECM, and most recently Berlin Bülbul and Cool Spring. His work often involves interaction with the live sounds of nature. David has performed and recorded with musicians including Peter Gabriel, Ray Phiri, Suzanne Vega, Scanner, Elliot Sharp, Markus Reuter, and the Karnataka College of Percussion. He has also worked on the films Song from the Forest and the upcoming Nightingales in Berlin based on his new book.

Jesse Terry / Abbie Gardner - Joe's Pub
August 23, 2017 - New York

On the eponymous title track of Stargazer, the lushly orchestrated and existentially optimistic fourth LP from singer/songwriter Jesse Terry, the notion of personal unhappiness is framed in terms of a cosmic choice: "Go on stargazer, I know how much it hurts / But you are free now to pick your universe." In a period of American life considered the most divisive and tribalistic in modern memory, the notion of hopefulness may feel misplaced to some. For Terry, though, it's a byproduct of his own life experience. "I think I will always be innately hopeful, because I've seen how much life can change," he says. "And the road I've traveled on my journey has shown me how much people can change, if they open up and allow themselves to do so." Abbie Gardner, the fiery Dobro player with an infectious smile has been touring with Americana darlings Red Molly for the past eleven years. After gracing stages from Denver to Denmark, from Australia to Austin, the band decided to take an indefinite hiatus in 2015, so Abbie is striking out on her own! No stranger to solo performing, she has three CDs to draw from, each with award-winning songs. Tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, ride the back of her by-now familiar, formidable slide guitar licks. She channels Lucinda and Bonnie, but remains pure Abbie. She has been recognized as an award-winning songwriter, as well, with such accolades as; 2008 Lennon Award Winner (folk) for "The Mind of a Soldier" and 2008 American Songwriter Magazine Grand Prize Lyric Winner for "I'd Rather Be". Her song "Honey on My Grave" was also published in Sing Out! Magazine in 2008. "With a confidence that can only be earned, Gardner bursts out with a national steel guitar and a ballsy blues on the opening cut "Break It Slow." It's an unprecedented romp, fully of gnarly guitar lines and lyrics reminiscent of Lucinda Williams or Bonnie Raitt." – Eli Peterson, Twangville

Frank Bell Live Acoustic at Arlo SoHo - Arlo SoHo
August 23, 2017 - New York

Originally a classically-trained cellist, Frank Bell expanded his instrumental arsenal as a way to further express himself as an artist. He turned his focus inwards, stripping down his sound and rediscovering the foundation of his passion: connecting with people through song. In 2010 Frank was named the HATCH GROUNDBREAKING Musician and made appearances on MTV, at the Sundance Film Festival, a Times Square NYE Concert, IdeaJam moderated by Ashton Kutcher, and sold-out shows in Europe. In March 2014, Frank was named the official Music Brand Ambassador for Skype which led to his participation on a TED 2014 panel with fellow artists Amanda Palmer and Imogen Heap. Spending extended periods of time in NYC, Boston and at sea, Frank has been hard at work listening, building relationships and refining his voice to speak to an increasingly diverse and disparate community. Always a heartfelt, insightful lyricist, his next big challenge is finding the words to match the world we live in today. Witness Frank bring together all walks of life through music at Arlo SoHo alongside a different featured guest artist every week! See you there!

Point Break Comes Alive! Live Soundtrack by Great White Caps - Brooklyn Bowl
August 24, 2017 - Brooklyn

Point Break in all it's ultimate glory with a live surf rock soundtrack!, Insidious Rays Experience the 'classic' 1991 film 'Point Break' in all it's ultimate glory with a live surf rock soundtrack performed by Great White Caps! The film, which many consider to be the greatest surf/spy/extreme sports/cop drama of all time will be screened in its entirety with an ongoing interplay between the audio from the film and the band's live performance. Great White Caps, armed with scripts and an assortment of cues, will be bringing the audio and dialogue of the film out to the forefront to preserve the storyline, before jamming alongside its memorable sequences. It is a well rehearsed production that has yielded not only a new and unique way to experience a movie you love, but a band as well. At these special screenings which have been performed all over the East Coast, the key is just simply having fun. They strongly encourage audience participation and the crowd are asked to yell at the screen and recite their favorite dialogue. At the end of the day these performances are happening because they love the movie so much, as band member Montag the Magnificent said, "This was a labor of love, because since my first VHS copy of this movie, to the many hung over Saturdays catching it on TV,to now having rehearsed and performed in front of this movie well over a hundred times, it never stops being fun. It's as simple as that." The Insidious Rays are a rock band that spans multiple styles of music. Hailing from Bethlehem, PA, The Insidious Rays have been performing since Jan 2001. Originally a 4-track recording project of singer/guitarist Matt Juknevic, the Rays took form as a 3 piece band with Jon Braun on drums and Michael Davidson on bass. Since their inception, the Rays evolved into a 5-piece band. They have released three full-length albums; "More Songs About Death, Love, Sex and Death" (2003), "Exotic Handshakes" (2005) and a retrospective of previously unreleased material called "Volume One And Two" (2016). Their explosive live performances have received acclaim from audiences of all demographics, and attracted the attention of producer Andrew Weiss (Ween, Rollins Band, Butthole Surfers, Yoko Ono, and Grammy winners Café Tacuba). Weiss engineered and produced the album, Exotic Handshakes. The Insidious Rays are: Matt Juknevic (vocals/guitar), Jon Braun (drums/vocals), Michael Davidson (guitar), Seth Juknevic (bass) and Chris McDermott (guitar and keys). JU

Bad Reputation. Pierre De Gaillande Sings George Brassens - Barbès
August 24, 2017 - New York

From the 50's through the late 70's, George Brassens redefined French Chanson. He was an anarchist bard whose songs were sometimes raunchy, sometimes polemic, often poignant, and always steeped in classic French poetry. He went on to become one the most emblematic French singer of the 20th century. His songs, unlike those of his friend Jacque Brel, never became known outside of France, mostly because of the literary aspect of his lyrics. Franco-American singer and composer Pierre de Gaillande has translated a number of Brassenssongs. He has stuck to the rhyming scheme and verse length of the original songs, thus matching the melodies perfectly. He has re-arranged the music with a cinematic sensibility, using a combination of guitars, clarinets, lapsteel and Charango. Best way to describe the record would be to compare it to a perfect movie adaptation of a book classic. Think Stanley Kubrick or Raoul Ruiz. Check out the Barbès Records release and the NPR Story.

Super Yamba - Barbès
August 24, 2017 - New York

Brooklyn's Super Yamba Band comprises a unique blend of inspiration born of 70s/80s West-African Afrobeat and Psychedelic Funk, with a live energy that moves everyone in the room to dance. The band formed in 2014 on the foundation of proficient musicians finding a common inspiration amongst their love for African music, especially through rare and sometimes out of print recordings. On the road, the band has honed their craft alongside show mates such as Reptar, Yeasayer, The Afromotive, Between The Buried And Me and Trioscapes. Collaborating over a few years with Senegalese griot and talking drum master Mamadou Mbenge, known best for his work with African pop star Abdou Guite Seck, was a defining moment in the development of Super Yamba's sound and the musician's understanding of the African music tradition. Look no further than Super Yamba Band's 2016 single, N'diarabi (feat. Ismael Kouyate), for a refreshing taste of what this imaginative group brings to the New York City music scene. The single highlights the band's progressive take on psychedelic Afro-Funk and boasts their ability to collaborate with heavy hitting performers on the African music scene. "N'diarabi" features the vocal wizardry of Ismael Kouyate, an acclaimed griot singer/dancer from Guinea, West Africa best known for his work on Beyonce's single "Grown Woman," in addition to the critically acclaimed musical Fela! On Broadway. "Opening with an unmistakable sabar groove, the track rapidly evolves into a burning Afro-stomper, with funked-out falsetto guitar licks and delirious organ riffs sitting firmly alongside Ismael Kouyate's evocative guest vocals. Periodic horn bursts and an incessant bass groove complete the mix, making for a thoroughly fresh—and danceable—record that is sure to sound even better live." -Afropop Worldwide. Super Yamba Band's second single 'Control Per Capita (C.P.C.)' came out in January of 2017 under the Brooklyn label 3rd Generation Recordings. The song was recorded in 2015 but the band felt like the timing was suddenly right to put out their most politically charged anthem. The song was originally written to pay homage to Fela Kuti's 1977 tune "Johnny Just Drop." Like many of Kuti's protest songs, "Control Per Capita" is a cry against the "control of every head," says writer and trumpet player Sean Smith. C.P.C. calls out the injustices of controlling unknowing populations, often through the use of propaganda and fear tactics on the 24-hour news cycles, according to Smith. "The result is irresistible, funky, modern Afrobeat." - Funkish. Though the song was originally written in 2014 and recorded in 2015, "the theme rings particularly true in America right now," says bandleader and drummer, Daniel Yount, "especially as the methods of control are becoming more literal with walls and bans."

The Nude Party [Residency Night 2] Boytoy Stuyedeyed - Baby's All Right
August 24, 2017 - New York

The Nude Party congealed as one unit in the southern mountain town of Boone, NC in 2013 and gained their namesake very literally. Bonded by isolation, house party debauchery, a religion based on pushing the limits of bad taste, and a precocious predisposition towards the Kinks, the Animals and the Velvets, they have burgeoned into a rock and roll act to be reckoned with. As the hysteria at their local shows steadily increases, so does their reputation with local law enforcement, forcing them daily more to seek employment anywhere but home. While snooping cops seeking to stamp out indiscriminate behavior scour the borders of their homestead the Nude Ranch, the group has prodigally exiled themselves and are staying scarce with a string of self booked tours and one night stands which have linked them up with with such likes as The Growlers, The Oblivians, La Luz, Night Beats, and King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard.

Oxymorrons - Rough Trade NYC
August 24, 2017 - Brooklyn

Oxymorrons began as a collaboration between Queens-bred brothers, K.I. and Deee, who joined forces to cultivate a sound that modern music can no longer turn its back on. After years spent playing and touring with other groups, the brothers decided it was time to set the New York scene ablaze with their sonic creations. The lineup expanded with the addition of staple drummer Matty Mayz, whose blistering talent along side bassist Joe Jordan and guitarist Adam November has become an intricate part of the bands live show. The genre-blending masterminds use their musical platform to speak for, and to, the rejected. Their message of embracing ones individuality resonates with their fellow underdogs. Originally hailing from Boston and currently based in NYC, Jachary is a 24 year old Singer/Songwriter, Multi-Instrumentalist and Producer. The Brooklyn artist owns and operates lovelove studios out of Bushwick, home to artists like Matt FX and Bohan Phoenix. Currently Jachary is performing his solo project backed by Mati (drums), Moki Kawaguchi (keys), and Felipe Wurst (guitar). Also accompanying the band is frequent D.R.A.M. collaborator and violin prodigy, Pip Van Genabeek (violin/synth) as well as Solange and Rihanna collaborator Ben Katz (saxophone).

Marquis Hill Blacktet - Blue Smoke & Jazz Standard
Through August 24, 2017 - New York

For the past five years, 29–year-old trumpeter Marquis Hill has been invigorating the Chicago jazz scene with his sleek approach to modern jazz. Hill's music incorporates elements of spoken word and hip–hop that come as naturally to him as the classics that comprise the primary repertoire of his Concord Jazz label debut The Way We Play. "I want to pay homage to some of my favorite jazz standards and American songbook classics," says Marquis Hill says. "These are some of the songs that I came up playing in vari¬ous jam sessions; these songs really taught me how to play jazz." But at the same time, "I really want to make it very clear that this is the sound of my band, which is uniquely Chicago." As on previous albums, Marquis Hill's Blacktet (featuring rising star drummer Makaya McCraven) revitalizes familiar material by placing heavier emphasis on the groove, which enables the compositions to resonate more to a 21st century jazz audience. Hill's clarion horn soars over this rich rhythmic foundation: "His articulation, precise but unlabored, calls to mind the precedent of Clifford Brown, while his bravura phrasing suggests an equal immersion in Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw." (Jazz Times)

ARTIST INFO Formed from the remnants of a hardcore band named Eclipse in the far-northern Swedish town of Umea (also home to avant-hardcore masters Refused and metal extremists Meshuggah and Naglfar), Cult of Luna have perfected an elaborate, extremely dark progressive style of metalcore largely derived from the pioneering work of America's Neurosis. Although hardly the only band to find inspiration in the Bay Area bunch (Isis and Rwake also numbering among their disciples), Cult of Luna are unquestionably among the most accomplished and distinctive in their own right, making an immediate impression upon metal fans with their eponymous 2001 debut through Rage of Achilles, and attaining further noisecore cred via a 7" release on tastemaker Hydra Head Records the following year. Their sophomore effort, The Beyond, solidified their standing a couple of years later and inaugurated a new relationship with Earache for vocalist Klas Rydberg, guitarists Erik Olofsson and Johannes Persson, bassist Andreas Johansson, keyboardist Magnus Lindberg, and drummer Marco Hilden. The last was replaced by Thomas Hedlund the next year, and Cult of Luna expanded to a seven piece with the addition of Anders Teglund (samples) for 2004's Salvation album.

Jai Wolf - Brooklyn Steel
August 25, 2017 - New York

Born in Bangladesh, Sajeeb Saha -- the force behind the indie-electronic Jai Wolf project -- bounced around quite a bit before finally settling in New York City. "I called Bangladesh, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and New York all my home before I turned 15." Regardless of his changing environments, he kept his music studies consistent. "I started violin at age 5 and continued to learn until the end of High School," says Saha. However, once he had earned his spot in the New York All State Orchestra, he felt he had gone as far as he wanted to with the violin. He wanted something new. "Originally my parents didn't want me to listen to anything except for traditional Bengali and classical music -- they were afraid I'd lose my roots. But by the time I was a teenager, they became accepting of American music, and I began my exploration." In 2011, Saha started that exploration under the monicker No Pets Allowed. Within a few years, his mashups and bootleg remixes began to generate attention, quickly rising within the internet music community. However, at the top of 2014, Saha decided to part ways with the project and start something new. "I realized I wanted to make music forever, and I didn't want to leave my legacy with a name like No Pets Allowed. I didn't want to be boxed into making dubstep or EDM in general. I wanted to make authentic music that would last forever." With the momentum generated through his previous project, Saha dove head first into the Jai Wolf project. Within the first few months, the project began to land a string of official remix opportunities throughout 2014 for established artists including Melanie Martinez, Dirty South, Alesso and ODESZA -- each remix landing the #1 spot on Hype Machine (an organic, internet version of Billboard's Top 100). His biggest break came in late 2014 when Skrillex put the official stamp on one of Jai Wolf's bootlegs. "Skrillex has always been one of my biggest inspirations. I had messaged him the remix, but I didn't actually expect him to hear it. Next thing I know, someone tweets out that Skrillex dropped my remix at Glastonbury festival and soon after he signs it to Owsla." Soon after, Jai Wolf began to perform across the country with some consistency, including a debut festival performance at Coachella. In the summer of 2015, Jai Wolf released his debut single Indian Summer through ODESZA's label Foreign Family Collective. "The success of Indian Summer has been so incredibly humbling. It's the first time I've created a track where I was completely true to myself." As of July 2016, Indian Summer has sold over 70,000 singles, has gone #1 on Spotify's US Viral Chart and #2 on iTunes' Electronic Chart, earned a spot on Triple J's Top 100 in Australia, and has received national sync placements including "American Idol," "How To Get Away With Murder" and with the NBA. In May 2016, Jai Wolf released his follow up single, "Drive," once again through Foreign Family Collective. In just a few weeks, the cinematic track collected over 1 million plays on both Soundcloud and Spotify. Saha's journey from classical music to electronic music, and from No Pets Allowed to Jai Wolf is a compelling example of growth and success. "It took me a while, but I finally feel comfortable making the music that I've always wanted to make. I feel like being my authentic self while creating music has been the reason for any of its success."

The Flamin' Groovies - Rough Trade NYC
August 25, 2017 - Brooklyn

The Flamin' Groovies story goes all the way back to 1965 when the band began as the Chosen Few in their hometown of San Francisco, California. After a name change and a self-released 10 inch album called "Sneakers", which sold amazingly well, the band caught the attention of Columbia who signed them up and sent them into the studio with a big budget to record their first real album, "Supersnazz", on the Epic label. Their next two albums were on Kama Sutra (home of their heroes, The Lovin' Spoonful): "Flamingo", and the now revered classic "Teenage Head". This year's Best of NYC band is Baby Shakes, a power-pop/garage rock four-piece (there's a ghost member in the band) that knows how to have fun. The group wins this poll's grand prize: the cover of the spring 2017 issue of The Deli - we are looking forward to that issue! The band's catalogue is pleasantly varied, with everything from relaxed surf rock tunes to easy rock-n-rollers to borderline punk, heavy-hitters. Though the expert guitar work of Mary Blount and Judy Lindsay is apparent, featuring harmonization, synchronized riffs, and the occasional shredtastic solo, what really makes Baby Shakes so infectious is the raw force and high energy of their songs. It's something you can pick up on even through earbuds. Be on the lookout for their new album Turn It Up out this spring. - Andrew Strader-Deli Magazi

Annie Golden with Friends & Family - Joe's Pub
August 25, 2017 - New York

Golden began her career as the lead singer of The Shirts (which headlined CBGB's in the late 70s). During the early 1990s she performed as part of the duo Golden Carillo with Frank Carillo. They released three albums; Fire in Newtown, Toxic Emotion, and Back for More. She then returned to The Shirts.

Since then she has performed solo and with a band. She performs a revue of songs from her stage career along with originals called Annie Golden's Velvet Prison. In 1984, her song "Hang Up the Phone" was featured on the soundtrack of the film Sixteen Candles.

While with The Shirts she was discovered by Miloš Forman who gave her a part in Hair. She had featured roles on Cheers and Miami Vice. On Broadway, she has appeared in the 1977 revival of Hair, Leader of the Pack, Ah, Wilderness!, On the Town and The Full Monty. She had the title role in the workshop of the short-lived adaptation of Stephen King's novel Carrie. She also played the role of Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme in Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's musical Assassins Off-Broadway in 1990-1991. In 2003 she joined other original Off-Broadway cast members in a Reprise! (Los Angeles) concert production of Assassins. In 2007, she was stand-by for the two comic villain roles in the musical Xanadu on Broadway.

Golden has the distinct honor of having appeared in three separate versions of Hair; a Broadway revival in 1977, the motion picture in 1979 and a special benefit performance concert in 2004. Golden was the voice of Marina in the Don Bluth film The Pebble and the Penguin. In recent years, she has been seen in commercials for Coinstar, in which she portrays The Tooth Fairy.

She appeared in the musical film Temptation with actors Adam Pascal, Tony Award Winners Alice Ripley and Anika Noni Rose, and film actress Zoe Saldana and in 2009 had a small role in I Love You Phillip Morris, with actors Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey, playing a simple woman requiring legal assistance. In 2011, Golden starred with Peter Scolari in the world premiere of The Nutcracker and I. Comically playing the Sugar Rush Fairy (and three other roles) in this musical comedy featuring the music of Tchaikovsky and lyrics by Gerard Alessandrini, she and Scolari were compared in one review to the team of Imogene Coca and Sid Caesar.

Love in Venice - New York Public Library: Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
Through August 26, 2017 - Manhattan

This exhibition is part of Carnegie Hall's citywide festival La Serenissima: Music and Arts from the Venetian Republic. A tolerant and secular state, the Venetian Republic originated in the lagoon communities around Venice and existed for half a millennium, from 1297 until 1797. Dominated by a merchant capitalist elite who did business through sea trade, the Republic of Venice enjoyed an autonomy and freedom that was not typical of the rest of Italy, and which for centuries made it a destination for love and pleasure. Titled "Love in Venice," the exhibition at The New York Public Library will examine the literary, artistic, musical and cultural aspects of Venice's seductiveness, including its beautiful courtesans, lavish festivals, lively carnivals and libertine counter-culture. On view will be works as diverse as the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, one of the most iconic works produced in Venice to explore ideas of desire, to flap books showing the undergarments of Venetian prostitutes, etchings by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, letters from Lord Byron's paramours and examples of wedding poetry celebrating the unions of leading European families.

Radical Bodies - New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, LPA Cafe
Through August 26, 2017 -

In August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin, the inventor of task-based improvisation, taught an experimental workshop on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco, attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer. Within two years, Forti's conceptually forceful dance constructions premiered in Yoko Ono's loft in New York and Rainer co-founded the groundbreaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies examines the artistic relationships between Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, shedding light on each artist's contribution to history. Dance was a conceptual engine of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized, communitarian vision for performance that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day. Curated by Ninotchka D. Bennahum (Professor of Theater and Dance, UCSB), Wendy Perron (Former Editor in Chief, Dance Magazine; Adjunct Professor, NYU Tisch School of the Arts) and Bruce Robertson (Professor of Art History and Director of the AD&A Museum, UCSB), Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 – 1972 consists of photographs, rare films, and original choreographic scores and drawings by Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, as well as work inspired by them by such artists as Imogen Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, and George Brecht. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, co-published by University of California Press, with essays by Bennahum, Perron, and Robertson, as well as essays by John Rockwell (former dance critic of The New York Times), and Halprin collaborator Morton Subotnick. Also in the catalogue are never-before-published letters by Forti to Halprin in the early '60s. Organized by The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara with generous support provided by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc., the Ceil and Michael Pulitzer Foundation, the Metabolic Studio, and Jody Gottfried Arnhold

The Rub - The Bell House
August 26, 2017 - Brooklyn

The Rub began in the summer of 2002, as a party where Brooklynites with good taste in music could come together, get wasted and dance until the wee hours of the morning. Even in that first year, it was clearly something special, garnering praise from the Village Voice ("best party in Brooklyn to dance sweatily to smart music"), New York Press ("best party in NYC") and many others. Ten years later, the original formula still holds true: great dance music mixed well, affordable drinks, and real people; no dress code, no bottle service and no celebrity DJs. Building on the consistently rammed club night, The Rub turned into more than a party, taking the show all around the world, moving hundreds of thousands of records and CDs, recording legendary mixes such as The History of Hip-Hop and racking up hundreds of episodes of Rub Radio. The Rub DJs have played shows with everyone from Gucci Mane to The Chemical Brothers, DJ Premier to Justice, adapting with the times but never forgetting the foundation of hip-hop, classic disco, funk and soul.

Bob Schneider (Solo) - Montgomery Hall
August 26, 2017 - Jersey City

Austin-based singer/songwriter/creative force of nature Bob Schneider has a guy in his band, Oliver Steck, who plays keyboards, accordion, trumpet and assorted whistles and horns. Also, Schneider notes, "Oliver also does a lot of dancing. He doesn't necessarily get paid for the dancing. He does it because he can't not." Apparently, the same could be said of Schneider in terms of artistic endeavors in general. He can't not be creating something. Sometimes it's writing songs — he has written some 2,000 songs in the past 16 years — sometimes it's creating videos to accompany some of those songs and sometimes it's making gallery-ready art, including paintings and collages. He also has played a wedding singer in an indie film, written two books and penned a rock opera that has a title that can't be printed in a family newspaper. Some of his musical mates even wonder when — or whether — he ever sleeps. "I love making things, so that's what I spend a lot of my time doing," says Schneider… "I do have periods where I feel like I'll never create anything that's any good ever again. The good news is, it doesn't stop me from creating things, and eventually that feeling will pass and I can look over the stuff that I've made and figure out which of it is better than the other stuff. Because I like to do it so much, I'll end up with quite a bit of it at the end of the year."

Jewish Food Tour of New York - Lower East Side
August 26, 2017 - New York

At the turn of the 20th century, when the Lower East Side was the most densely populated place in the world, the vast majority of the district's 550,000 residents were Jewish. The Lower East Side was the first port of call for millions of Jews fleeing persecution in Eastern Europe. Over a century later, we set off to explore the ancestral gateway to America through the diverse cooking traditions of the Jewish diaspora, and through the food discover the history and cultural legacy of Jewish culture in New York. Did Jews become assimilated to New York, or the other way around: New York assimilated to the Jews! Comedian Lenny Bruce declared: “It doesn’t matter, even if you’re Catholic. If you live in New York, you’re Jewish. If you live in Butte, Montana, you are going to be goyish if you’re Jewish.” JEWISH FOOD TOUR OF NEW YORK Jewish Cuisine Bagels and lox, Knish, Matzo, Bialy, and much more! Jewish History in NYC Did you know the first significant group of Jews to come to New York, then the colony New Amsterdam, came in September 1654 as refugees from Recife, Brazil? Famous Jewish New Yorkers Edward Koch, Woody Allen, Estee Lauder, and many more! Aside from the food and culture, there is much more to experience on the tour, from street art to hipster watching, and the charm of the LES, there are many more hidden stories and secrets in store on this cultural dive into the LES.

'Checks and Balances, or Bottoms Up!' @ Travers Park - Travers Park

A teacher, subway conductor and neighborhood school girl lead community activists in the fight against the monster of apple pie fascism and threats of planetary death from the pumpkin head of state. WHERE AND WHEN: August 5 to September 17 (critics invited to all performances). In NYC streets, parks, and playgrounds throughout the five boroughs. See complete schedule at bottom of this document. Presented by Theater for the New City (www.theaterforthenewcity.net). Free to the public. Audience info (212) 254-1109. Runs 1:15. Critics are invited to all performances. Photos are available at: https://goo.gl/photos/13TxHj8WMNY19TWw8 NEW YORK, June 28 -- This year, the American theater has been responding to the change in national politics with infuriation, vexation, and distrust. Satires abound. Classics are widely being reinterpreted into a modern context. There will likely be a wave of modernist plays on the "new human condition" -- witnessing the downfall of the civil society but being powerless to do anything about it. Playwright/director Crystal Field, Artistic Director of Theater for the New City (TNC), opposes powerlessness and maintains that small people can fend off tyranny through local activism. That's the idea behind "Checks and Balances, or Bottoms Up!," her newest made-for-outdoors musical, that she will direct for Theater for the New City's award-winning Street Theater Company. The piece will tour City streets, parks and playgrounds in free performances throughout all five boroughs August 5 to September 17. (Schedule follows at bottom of this document.) Field has written book and lyrics and Joseph A. Banks has written the score. In the piece, a young New York School girl is galvanized into a community activist and together with key allies, learns to fight back against forces of tyranny, prejudice and hatred. TNC's street theater productions typically provide a bouncy joyride through the undulations of the body politic with astute commentary couched in satire, song and slapstick. Their scores are a mix of music from Bossa Nova to Hip Hop to Musical Comedy to Gilbert & Sullivan. They are delightfully suited for family audiences, since complex social issues are often presented through children's allegories, with children and neighborhood people as the heroes. A brand new work has been presented annually since 1976. In "Checks and Balances, or Bottoms Up!," a Gotham school girl learns to be a feminist activist after being deemed a white elitist by her friends. Not least of her motivations is the injustice and callousness of a certain giant puppet who represents the dominion of arrogance and calls to passing women, "Here pussy, pussy, pussy!" During a spontaneous protest by subway passengers on the L train, this unlikely heroine acquires two key allies--a subway conductor and a teacher--and is inspired by three others--a Buddhist monk disguised as an itinerant bum, an investigative reporter and a blue fairy. Together, they witness the agony of deportation, the shortage of health-care, the misery of unemployment, the threats to clean air and water, and the fight to stifle the free press. So they set out to thwart the monster of apple pie fascism and threats of planetary death from the pumpkin head of state. The phrase "bottoms up" in the title refers to our need to organize decent people from the bottom up, not from the top down. Other characters of the piece include a walking and dancing Statue of Liberty, guys in suits who celebrate the "digitally literate elite, the tourist trade, the engineering elite and corporate princes," and immigrants from all over the world who get shoved around. Highlights of the spectacle-filled production will include a Fake News Ballet with a chorus of women dressed in newsprint, a giant Statue of Liberty puppet (which is dismembered by the villains and carried off), a song named "Sanctuary City Blues" and a Spirit of Trump apparition which rises above the stage as its two arms--with their little hands--envelop the stage. The aforementioned Blue Fairy has a quiver full of love glitter and he brings people together with it but he is never happy himself. Ultimately, he throws his love potion on the Pumpkin Head of State and the demon melts like a wicked witch, crying TWEET TWEET while sliding down the trap. The production will be staged with an elaborate assemblage of trap doors, giant puppets, smoke machines, masks, original choreography and a huge (9' x 12') running screen or "cranky" providing continuous movement behind the actors. The company of 28 actors, teb crew members, two assistant directors, two stage managers and five live musicians (led by the composer at the keyboard) will share the challenge of performing outside and holding a large, non-captive audience. ABOUT THE AUTHORS Author/director Crystal Field, with an Associate's Degree in Dance from Julliard and a Bachelor's from Hunter, began writing street theater in 1968 as a member of Theater of the Living Arts in Philadelphia. She wrote and performed her own outdoor theater pieces against the Vietnam War and also curated and performed many poetry programs for the Philadelphia Public Schools. There she found tremendous enthusiasm and comprehension on the part of poor and minority students for both modern and classical poetry when presented in a context of relevancy to current issues. She realized that for poetry to find its true audience, the bonds of authoritarian criticism must and can be transcended. Her earliest New York street productions were playlets written in Philadelphia and performed on the flatbed truck of Bread and Puppet Theater in Central Park. Peter Schumann, director of that troupe, was her first NY artistic supporter. In 1971, Ms. Field became a protégé of Robert Nichols, founder of the Judson Poets Theater in Manhattan. It is an interesting historic note that "The Expressway" by Robert Nichols, directed by Crystal Field (a Street theater satire about Robert Moses' plan for a through way to run across Little Italy from the West Side Highway to the FDR Drive). It was actually the first production of Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival. Nichols wrote street theater plays for TNC in its early years, but as time went on, wrote scenarios and only the first lines of songs, leaving Field to "fill in the blanks." When Nichols announced his retirement to Vermont in 1975, he urged Field to "write your own." The undertaking, while stressful at first, became the impetus for her to express her own topical political philosophy and to immerse her plays in that special brand of humor referred to often as "that brainy slapstick." Her first complete work was "Mama Liberty's Bicentennial Party" (1976), in honor of the 200th anniversary of the American Revolution. Field has written and directed a completely new opera for the TNC Street Theater company each successive year. She collaborated for eleven years with composer Mark Hardwick, whose "Pump Boys and Dinettes" and "Oil City Symphony" were inspired by his street theater work with Ms. Field. At the time of his death from AIDS in 1994, he was writing a clown musical with Field called "On the Road," which was never finished. One long-running actor in TNC street theater was Tim Robbins, who was a member of the company for six years in the 1980s, from age twelve to 18. The Village Halloween Parade, which TNC produced single-handedly for the Parade's first two years, grew out of the procession which preceded each Street Theater production. Ralph Lee, who created the Parade with Ms. Field, was chief designer for TNC's Street Theater for four years before the Village Halloween Parade began. Field has also written for TNC's annual Halloween Ball and for an annual Yuletime pageant that was performed outdoors for 2,000 children on the Saturday before Christmas. She has written two full-length indoor plays, "Upstate" and "One Director Against His Cast." She is Executive Director of TNC. Composer Joseph-Vernon Banks has written original music for the TNC street theater productions "Election Selection, or You Bet!," "Teach it Right, or Right to Teach," "EMERGENCY!!! or The World Takes A Selfie," "99% "Reduced Fat, or, You Can Bank On Us," "Bamboozled, or the Real Reality Show," "Tap Dance," "State Of The Union," "The Patients Are Running The Asylum," "Bio-Tech," "Code Orange: on the M15," "Social Insecurity," "Buckle My Shoe" and "Gone Fission: Alternative Power," all with book and lyrics by Crystal Field. His other TNC productions include music and lyrics for "Life's Too Short To Cry" by Michael Vazquez. His awards include a Meet The Composer Grant, the ASCAP Special Awards Program, and a fellowship from the Tisch Graduate Musical Theater Writing Program at NYU. His musical "Girlfriends!" premiered at The Goodspeed Opera House. He has been a composer–in-residence in The Tribeca Performing Arts Center Work and Show Series and is a member of The Dramatists Guild.

Dion Flynn Works Well with Others - The PIT (Peoples Improv Theater)
August 26, 2017 - New York

DION FLYNN is best known as Barack Obama on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and has over 60 appearances as 14 different characters on both The Tonight Show & Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon. Cited by Oprah aMagazine as "one of our favorite creative thinkers..." Dion's solo improv has been described as: "Alternately maniacal and tender, vulnerable and ballsy, Dion Flynn looses his brand of liquid, synapse-rich comedy in an evening of interactive improv which takes the audience on a loopy, looping comic odyssey from which the ghosts of Orson Welles and Spalding Grey are never far. Flynn's mind is both shock and absorber, as spongy and receptive as the suspension in a New York taxicab: pretty soon, you're flying." — Tom Shone, Film Critic, Intelligent Life "Dion Flynn's solo theatrical improvisations are what it would be if Jackson Pollack and James Joyce did comedy." -An audience member named Nick, pressed for comment during a show by Dion. "Dion's solo performance at The PIT is an experience. He takes the audience on the same journey he is going through as he figures out his show/performance art piece/happening. And it's all in an empty space, armed with only a microphone, a couch and a piano. It's a magic show where you get to see the magician astounded by his own illusions. Dion is a natural improviser, a born-performer, and it certainly shows in this impressive weekly solo improv piece. In a world of so many 8-person improv teams and shows, it is refreshing to see someone take the risk of going at it alone--and it is a special treat that it happens to be Dion Flynn." - Chris Aurillio

Bob Schneider (Solo) - Monty Hall
August 26, 2017 - New York

Austin-based singer/songwriter/creative force of nature Bob Schneider has a guy in his band, Oliver Steck, who plays keyboards, accordion, trumpet and assorted whistles and horns. Also, Schneider notes, "Oliver also does a lot of dancing. He doesn't necessarily get paid for the dancing. He does it because he can't not." Apparently, the same could be said of Schneider in terms of artistic endeavors in general. He can't not be creating something. Sometimes it's writing songs — he has written some 2,000 songs in the past 16 years — sometimes it's creating videos to accompany some of those songs and sometimes it's making gallery-ready art, including paintings and collages. He also has played a wedding singer in an indie film, written two books and penned a rock opera that has a title that can't be printed in a family newspaper. Some of his musical mates even wonder when — or whether — he ever sleeps. "I love making things, so that's what I spend a lot of my time doing," says Schneider… "I do have periods where I feel like I'll never create anything that's any good ever again. The good news is, it doesn't stop me from creating things, and eventually that feeling will pass and I can look over the stuff that I've made and figure out which of it is better than the other stuff. Because I like to do it so much, I'll end up with quite a bit of it at the end of the year." Schneider has been a recording artist for 25 years, putting out his first record ("Party Till You're Dead") in 1991 as frontman for Joe Rockhead, a funk-rock combo in the vein of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. That band was followed by his best-known group, Ugly Americans, which toured with the Dave Matthews Band and Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Ugly Americans was a kind of alt-rock supergroup, with former members of Cracker, Poi Dog Pondering and Mojo Nixon's band.

Reading the Forested Landscape - Hoags Corners Ambulance
August 26, 2017 - East Nassau

It introduces people to approaches used to interpret a forest's history while wandering through it. Using evidence such as the shapes of trees, scars on their trunks, the pattern of decay in stumps, the construction of stone walls, and the lay of the land, it is possible to unravel complex stories etched into our forested landscape. This process could easily be called forest forensics, since it is quite similar to interpreting a crime scene. The program will begin with a slide show and discussion at the Hoags Corners Ambulance Garage. We will then make a short trip to the Albert Family Community Forest for the field portion of the event. Please note: This workshop will be cancelled if we do not have enough participants to cover our cost by August 21. No refunds will be given after August 21. If cancelled for any reason a full refund will be given to all registrants. Cost: Members may take a $5 discount* $35 Early bird if registered by July 1 $40 if registered by Aug 1 $45 last ticket sales Aug 20

Tour includes viewing and discussion of the exterior of the National Academy of Design, the Whitney Museum uptown, the landmarked Metropolitan and Guggenheim Museums, and details about their newer incarnations.

Chris Rob - Blue Note
Through August 26, 2017 - New York

True music lovers always search for the connections between the new and the old, the fresh and the classic. Sometimes they're fortunate enough to find both in one artist. For Chris Rob, the classically trained pianist featured on Kanye West's 'Can't Tell Me Nothin', crossing genres is natural. "All music is connected in some way, so if its from the heart, the audience can feel it, there really isn't that much discrimination," says Chris. This might explain why the singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer can't be boxed in and audiences from New York to Russia have revealed in his genre fusion. His twist of hip hop, house, and cool funk can be witnessed firsthand on the recently released "Everything's Beautiful", the Robert Glasper executive produced Miles Davis remix album. The final track, "Right On Brotha" featuring Stevie Wonder, was co written and produced by Chris with the industry heavyweight DJ Spinna. "Working with Stevie has been a tremendous blessing for me," says Chris. He also has served as an opening act for the legendary singer, as well as serving as his musical director for President Obama's inauguration.

The Southern California trio, who formed in 1997 and moved to the mainland from the three musicians' hometown of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii in 1999, know that where they come from should always be infused in the music they create. On Ohana, the group's seventh full-length album (4/29/16, LAW Records), Pepper embraces the feelings and sounds that encouraged them to become a band in the first place.

Pups on the Plaza, with Dog Parker and Slobbr - Central Library, Plaza
August 26, 2017 - Brooklyn

You may have seen a few of these futuristic looking dog houses in front of different stores in your neighborhood but not fully understood what was going on, which makes sense because Dog Parker is the first technology of its kind. Dog Parkers are high-tech and cozy houses that sit outside of dozens of storefronts throughout Brooklyn. Because many stores cannot allow dogs inside, Dog Parker provides a safe alternative to tying up your dog outside and a happy alternative to leaving them at home alone. Slobbr, an iOS app, enables pooch parents to find pet-friendly local parks, restaurants, hotels, and more that have been recommended by users in the Slobbr community or curated by the Slobbr team. Users can also expand their pack by connecting with dog lovers around them or posting photos of their four-legged pals. Best of all, for every check-in, Slobbr donates half a cup of kibble to a local animal shelter or rescue group.

Noah's Beasts: Sculpted Animals from Ancient Mesopotamia - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through August 27, 2017 - New York

Animal representations in the sculptural arts of the ancient Near East are remarkable for their evocative expressive power. Beautiful and durable, these artworks have withstood the millennia and preserve the record of humanity, its concerns and beliefs, for all subsequent generations. Often combining great attention to naturalistic detail with elements of stylization, the ancient sculptures—made in both stone and metal, some even with silver and inlays of shell and lapis lazuli—have a strong visual appeal; yet they also lend insight on the sacred, profane, sacrificial, and practical realities of the early Sumerian agrarian society, which is popularly known as the cradle of Western civilization. This exhibition presents Mesopotamian sculptural works from ca. 3300–2250 B.C., bringing together for the first time pieces from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Yale University Babylonian Collection, the Kimbell Art Museum, and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Cylinder seals relating to each of the sculptures are also presented, including a remarkable seal from the Morgan's collection showing animals acting as human. Through a focused consideration of these Near Eastern artworks, the rare objects emphasize the importance of the elements of the natural world that the ancients experienced and, by extension, the interdependence of the natural and the spiritual world. Inspiring the exhibition, the Morgan's famous 1646 B.C. clay tablet will also be on view; it is inscribed with the "The Deluge Story"—an early version of the familiar tale of Noah.

GroßEr Lauscher - Knockdown Center
Through August 27, 2017 - New York

großer Lauscher ("big Eavesdropper" in German) is a spatial sound installation created by interdisciplinary artist Alyssa Miserendino. The piece was recorded in the main radar dome at the Field Station Berlin, a listening station built during the Cold War by the US National Security Agency (NSA). Exhibited in the darkness, the piece is comprised of five narrators from five different continents reciting the story of Echo from Ovid's Metamorphoses, while the protracted echos created by the architecture allow visitors to visualize the space of the Field Station. This project is made possible by an Ella Fountain Pratt Emerging Artists Grant from the Durham Arts Council with support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources + a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant. This project is sponsored by Arup and Genelec. About ArupIn order to curate an experience driven solely by sound, the unique acoustic signature of the main radar dome at the Field Station Berlin called for a playful interpretation and immersive implementation through sound design. The performance was recorded in a multichannel audio format in Berlin by Alyssa Miserendino with technical support from Arup. In close collaboration with the artist the audio was then processed, spatialized, and rendered into the final piece by Arup acoustic designers using the proprietary 3D audio technology of the Arup SoundLab®. Arup concurrently designed a spatial sound system to render the piece and provided acoustic consulting expertise for the exhibition space, optimizing the patron aural experience,About Genelec Genelec is a sponsor of the project großer Lauscher, providing studio monitors and mounting accessories for the installation at Knockdown Center. Genelec's design philosophy is based on sustainable development and environmental values, using industrial design to serve their products' acoustical performance. Genelec aims to deliver performance-driven, tonally neutral speaker and subwoofer systems for audio professionals and enthusiasts. Alyssa Miserendino is an interdisciplinary artist & educator, working in photography, sculpture, video, sound, performance & installation. She creates artwork driven by her interest in paradox & connection. Since her undergraduate fellowship award, from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, her work has since been supported by organizations such as the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation and ARUP. She completed her Masters in Fine Art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and is currently teaching at The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.

J.A.W. Cooper - Impermanence - Spoke Art Gallery
Through August 27, 2017 - New York

Impermanence a solo show by J.A.W. Cooper Opening Reception: August 5th, 6 - 9pm On view: August 5th - 27th, 2017 SPOKE NYC is pleased to announce “Impermanence” a solo exhibition by acclaimed illustrator, J.A.W. Cooper. Based in Los Angeles, and working as a freelance illustrator, art director and fine artist, Cooper draws inspiration from nature, curio cabinets and fashion photography. “Impermanence” will be Cooper’s inaugural solo exhibition at SPOKE, in which she will explore themes of life, death and the urgency of ephemerality through her distinct surreal lens. For “Impermanence,” Cooper has created a series of paintings and drawings on paper. The artists graphite drawings highlight her signature flowing lines, while paintings feature Cooper’s technique of gradually layering washes of acrylic over India ink. The scenes and figures depicted appear to oscillate between the paradoxical elements of strength and vulnerability, transforming them into metaphors for life and death. Cooper’s narrative based compositions explore the relationships between animals, nature and humans. These explorations create allegorical “folktales” which give the viewer a glimpse into the artists imagined “alternate reality”. Regarding her new body of work, the artist explains that it explores “the significance imparted by the urgency of ephemerality and of the rhythms of seasons and of life and death. Without the urgency we feel from the conscious knowledge of our own impermanence, our experience of life would be insignificant.” Please join us Saturday, August 5th from 6 - 9pm for the opening reception of “Impermanence”. Complimentary beverages will be served and the artist will be in attendance. As an added bonus, the first 50 attendees of the exhibition will receive a free mini print!

James Carter - Blue Note
Through August 27, 2017 - New York

Two sets .....An artist long intrigued by contrasts and hybrids, saxophonist James Carter resists comfortable categorization. Born in 1969 and raised in Detroit, he grew up surrounded by music, soaking up everything from funk and fusion to rock, soul, and various strains of acoustic jazz. It was the late trumpeter Lester Bowie who first brought Carter to New York, inviting him to perform with his New York Organ Combo. The Bowie connection led to Carter's debut recording, 1993's JC on the Set, a quartet tour de force that announced the arrival of a superlative new talent equally expressive on alto, tenor, and baritone sax (though he's added several other horns over the years, most importantly soprano sax). Carter quickly won a reputation for being able to play jazz in just about any style while maintaining an originality and a flare all his own. His versatility him chances to collaborate with a wide range of artists, including Julius Hemphill, Kathleen Battle, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Cyrus Chesnut, and Wynton Marsalis. In recent years, Carter has also reinvented the organ combo with Out of Nowhere (2005), with John Medeski on Heaven and Earth (2009), and with At the Crossroads (2011), his latest release. Featuring the lithe and muscular keyboard work of Detroit's rising B3 star Gerard Gibbs and the propulsive drum support of veteran Motor City trap master Leonard King Jr., At the Crossroads marks the 10th anniversary of the multigenerational James Carter Organ Trio. A sensational follow-up to the saxophonist's acclaimed Emarcy release Caribbean Rhapsody (2011), Carter's 15th album documents his trio's combustible chemistry, with a Detroit-centric cast of special guests adding fuel to the celebratory fire.

Lady Rizo: Indigo Album Release - Joe's Pub
Through August 27, 2017 - New York

"An anarchist streak still runs through me," says Lady Rizo, the singer-sophisticate who was once a teenage punk rocker. "I love the idea of claiming something that's uncool and making it authentic." To that end, the NYC-based artist has earned a name for herself by transforming nightclub-pop into experiences that are more soulful, more theatrical. A provocateur with an electric wit, Lady Rizo is a vessel for the spirits of Edith Piaf and Freddie Mercury. The New York Times once referred to Lady Rizo (né Amelia Zirin-Brown) as, "a formidable belter who can sustain phrases and notes even when sprawled on her back on a piano and scissoring her legs." They're not alone in that enthusiasm. Lady Rizo—who is releasing Indigo (Aug 18th), her second album—has collaborated with Moby, Reggie Watts, and Yo-Yo Ma, the latter on his Songs of Joy & Peace album which won a Grammy Award.

Hilary Knight's Stage Struck World - New York Public Library for the Performing Arts
Through August 28, 2017 - New York

Hilary Knight was born stage-struck, ninety years ago. Best known as the illustrator of the American classic Eloise, he cites the performing arts as the single greatest influence on his life and career. As a child, Knight was fascinated by the circus and could not get enough of Broadway. His artist parents introduced him to musicals with Jumbo in 1935. His early theatrical influences were Ethel Merman in Red, Hot and Blue; Gertrude Lawrence in Lady in the Dark; and the sensational Carmen Miranda in The Streets of Paris. The movies were another source of inspiration and obsession. Designer Adrian's extravagant costumes for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) mesmerized him; child star Sabu in Elephant Boy (1937) became a hero. After studying at the Art Students' League with Reginald Marsh, and then a stint in the US Navy in World War II, Knight designed sets under the exacting eye of the legendary George Abbott at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine. Eloise became a national and international bestseller in the 1950's, and Knight's children's book career took off with titles such as Where's Wallace, and The Circus is Coming! Yet his work in the theater continued with iconic Broadway posters, including No, No, Nanette, Irene, Half a Sixpence, and the burlesque musical Sugar Babies, starring Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller, among many others. Now for the first time, Hilary Knight's stage-struck life is the subject of a comprehensive exhibition that includes original artwork for posters; theatrical illustrations for Vanity Fair magazine (where Knight is a contributing editor); Knight's most recent work — three-dimensional portraits in stage-like settings — and costume and set designs for performances and revues that reveal that for Hilary Knight, all the world is indeed a stage.

Through August 29, 2017 - New York

It's hard to catch the wind; the freedom of the highway, and the psychedelic insanity that was 1974. Ellen Kaye is tackling all three in her new run at Silvana. Two years after Watergate, two weeks after Nixon resigns and Ford takes office, America is pulling out of Vietnam, Shirley Chisolm has recently run for President. The Black Panthers, The Weather Underground, The Symbionese Liberation Army and Patty Hearst, and Angela Davis are the news as Ellen begins hitchhiking cross country - adventures good and bad, and a two year residency on Harts Island - it's a quintessential tale of some badass days and nights. Thank God Ethan Fein is on guitar. And Seth Goldman is keeping score. Blues/Folk

Agora Gallery is pleased to present the 2017 selected artists of the Chelsea International Fine Art Competition. Now in its 32nd year, the competition has a rich history of recognizing exciting new talent from all over the world. This year's participants display a growing social awareness, an eager curiosity of spatial and tonal questions, and outstanding technical skill. Included are several incisive photographers who document contemporary urban, exurban, and completely wild places with compassion and respect. One selected sculptor gives life to outsized and fantastic shapes. There is a wide range of painting on display, including pieces whose abstraction is so subtle that it verges on something more like stylization. There is also a palpable return to hyperrealism, with several impeccably realized still lifes and portraits that dare the viewer to do a double-take. Among the displayed works is a feeling of rediscovery of the hand-wrought craft of art in an increasingly digital world. The exhibition opens August 19, 2017 and runs through August 30, 2017 with an opening reception on Saturday, August 19 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.

Performance skills are honed through exposure to repertory and preparation for a year-end recital.  https://www.ballethispanico.org/classes/professional-studies   ABOUT BALLET HISPÁNICO Ballet Hispánico, the premier Latino dance organization in the United States, brings individuals and communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through dance. Whether dancing on stage, in school, or in the street, Ballet Hispánico creates a space where few institutions are breaking ground. The organization's founder, National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, sought to give voice to the Hispanic experience and break through stereotypes. Today Ballet Hispánico is led by Eduardo Vilaro, an acclaimed choreographer and former member of the Company, whose vision of universal access to cultural identity, equity and quality arts education drives its programs. Ballet Hispánico has become a role model in and for the Latino community and is inspiring creativity and social awareness in our neighborhoods and across the country by providing access to arts education.    The Ballet Hispánico School of Dance offers an eclectic curriculum based on classical ballet, Spanish, and contemporary dance forms. Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Dance, the School empowers students by offering a holistic approach to movement discovery, including pre-professional training and classes for the novice dancer. The School also offers adult classes and workshops that provide cultural enrichment and the joy of dance to everyone.   For more information, visit www.ballethispanico.org.   EDUARDO VILARO joined Ballet Hispánico as Artistic Director in August 2009, becoming only the second person to head the company since it was founded in 1970. In 2015, Mr. Vilaro took on the additional role of Chief Executive Officer of Ballet Hispánico. He has been part of the Ballet Hispánico family since 1985 as a principal dancer and educator, after which he began a ten-year record of achievement as Founder and Artistic Director of Luna Negra Dance Theater in Chicago. Mr. Vilaro has infused Ballet Hispánico's legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America's changing cultural landscape. Born in Cuba and raised in New York from the age of six, he is a frequent speaker on the merits of cultural diversity and dance education.    Mr. Vilaro's own choreography is devoted to capturing the spiritual, sensual and historical essence of the Latino cultures. He created over 20 ballets for Luna Negra and has received commissions from the Ravinia Festival, the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Grant Park Festival, the Lexington Ballet and the Chicago Symphony. In 2001, he was a recipient of a Ruth Page Award for choreography, and in 2003, he was honored for his choreographic work at Panama's II International Festival of Ballet. In 2016, he was inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame.    MICHELLE MANZANALES, Director of the Ballet Hispánico School of Dance, is a choreographer and dance educator originally from Houston, TX, Ms. Manzanales has created works for numerous professional companies, universities, and schools throughout the country. Con Brazos Abiertos, her critically acclaimed first work for Ballet Hispánico, had its world premiere at the Joyce Theater in April, 2017. With humility, nostalgia and humor, Con Brazos Abiertos explored the iconic Mexican symbols that Ms. Manzanales was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas. Ms. Manzanales's previous works include Sugar in the Raw (Azucar Cruda) for Luna Negra Dance Theater, which was applauded by the Chicago Sun-Times as "a staggering, beautiful, accomplished new work" in 2007. In 2010, her homage to Frida Kahlo, Paloma Querida, was hailed as a "visual masterpiece" by Lucia Mauro of the Chicago Tribune.   She began working with Ballet Hispánico Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro in 2003 as a dancer for his then-company Luna Negra Dance Theater of Chicago, where she later became Rehearsal Director in 2006 and eventually served as Interim Artistic Director 2009-2010. Prior to her appointment to School Director, Ms. Manzanales served as the Rehearsal Director and Artistic Associate of the main company of Ballet Hispánico for seven years.

Classes will be offered Monday through Saturday. 5% discount available with payment by August 31, 2017. An annual recital will conclude the training program. For registration and more information, visit www.nytb.org/ballet-school-ny.   Qualified children perform with New York Theatre Ballet throughout the year in special roles created for them. The studio trains in the Cecchetti method, a technique founded by Italian ballet master Enrico Cecchetti. The school teaches dance as a total art form, developing strong technical skill and discipline. Following the Cecchetti syllabus, classes emphasize music, theatricality, gesture and style. Well-trained Cecchetti dancers have purity of line and simplicity of style, which enables them to take their place in dance companies throughout the world. For the advanced students, a once-a-week workshop is part of the curriculum featuring classes in Graham Technique taught by Miki Orihara.   "There is always a teaching assistant in every class and we teach to the individual child," said Diana Byer, Founder and Artistic Director of NYTB. "Every child gets personal attention in each class."   The Company's repertory season will include performances at Danspace Project, 92Y and Florence Gould Hall.  The Once Upon A Ballet series for family audiences will continue at Florence Gould Hall and the Schimmel Center Performing Arts Center at Pace University.   ABOUT BALLET SCHOOL NY Ballet School NY (BSNY) was founded by artistic director Diana Byer in 1978 as the official training school of New York Theatre Ballet. The school teaches dance as a total art form, developing strong technical skill and discipline.  Following the Cecchetti syllabus, classes emphasize music, theatricality, gesture and style. For the advanced and pre-professional level student classes in modern, theater dance, pointe, variations and repertory round out the training curriculum. Ballet School NY provides teaching assistants in every class. Small class size guarantees highly individualized instruction. For qualified students, the school's unique relationship with the Company provides performing experience throughout the year in ballets featuring roles for children.   ABOUT NEW YORK THEATRE BALLET New York Theatre Ballet has reinvented itself as New York's downtown ballet company. With its ever-expanding repertory, NYTB's cutting edge programming brings fresh insight to classic revivals paired with the modern sensibilities of both established and up and coming choreographers. The diversity in repertory explores the past while boldly taking risks on the future. Performing in more intimate spaces, often to live music, brings the audience and the dance together for a personal experience. When reflecting on NYTB's first season at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery in 2015, The New York Times said, "The members of Theater Ballet are not only refined dancers but also unaffected actors... they draw you in. The intimacy of the space only helped; the amplitude and honesty of their dancing has found its match in St. Mark's Church."

Times Square Arts Presents MSHR’s Convolution Weave~Lattice Domain - Times Square
Through August 31, 2017 - New York

– In partnership with Upfor Gallery, Times Square Arts presents artist MSHR’s Convolution Weave~Lattice Domain on Times Square’s electronic billboards from 11:57 p.m. to midnight every night in August. This project is a part of Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation by The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. MSHR's work is also currently featured in the Past Skin exhibition at MoMA PS1 (open through September 10, 2017) and The World is Sound at the Rubin Museum (open through January 18, 2018), and will appear in the Sonic Arcade exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design (September 14, 2017 - February 25, 2018). Through spinning virtual sculptures and a specific visual language, MSHR create their own highly aestheticized, psychedelic version of the type of sensory overload found on the electronic screens of Times Square. The elaborate sculptures, which shift colors as they reflect digital light, seem one moment to almost be physical objects and the next to be obviously virtual, flowing from real to imaginary. In setting up algorithmic procedures and cued extrusions, then responding intuitively when the procedures lead to a turning point, MSHR design forms that resonate with an invisible mental architecture – shapes that feel right, even if they may not be possible in reality, much as the reality of New York City itself may or may not overlap with mental perceptions of the city.

Collecting the Arts of Mexico - The Met
Through September 04, 2017 - New York

In 1911, Emily Johnston de Forest gave her collection of pottery from Mexico to The Met. Calling it "Mexican maiolica," she highlighted its importance as a North American artistic achievement. De Forest was the daughter of the Museum's first president and, with her husband, Robert, a founder of The American Wing. The De Forests envisioned building a collection of Mexican art, and, even though their ambitions were frustrated at the time, the foundational gift of more than one hundred pieces of pottery anchors The Met's holdings. Today, more than a century later, their vision resonates as the Museum commits to collecting and exhibiting not just the arts of Mexico, but all of Latin America. This exhibition highlights the early contributions of the De Forests and others, and presents recent additions to the collection for the first time.

For the second year in a row, Liberty Science Center gives guests the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of legendary paleontologist Jack Horner, the inspiration of the Michael Crichton novel and Steven Spielberg film, “Jurassic Park.” Mr. Horner is lending his name to the activity to help inspire the next generation of scientists. “Every kid has imagined how cool it would be to dig for dinosaur bones,” said Paul Hoffman, LSC President and CEO. “Liberty Science Center is all about bringing science to life in fun, interactive, and compelling ways. With Jack Horner’s expertise to guide us, our ‘Dino Dig’ guests will see first-hand how exciting paleontology can be.” The exhibit has been updated since Mr. Horner’s visit to LSC last year, reflecting more of his excavation experiences and focus on specific discoveries. Many of the over 50 bones, including a 72-inch long Triceratops skull, will protrude from the ground as if “weathering out,” and new species have been added. The full assemblage now includes T. rex, Pachycephalosaurus, Triceratops, and Mr. Horner’s discovery, Maiasaura, which cared for nests of their young in huge gatherings as their birddescendants, including emperor penguins, still do today.

Tickets to Liberty Science Center start at $17.75 and are available online at LSC.org. Note: Kids wearing dinosaur-themed clothing can save $5 on child admission tickets while the exhibit is here!

Houston artist Adela Andea is known for transforming indoor spaces. Her installations create sensory experiences for her viewers. In Arts Brookfield's latest exhibition, It's Unreal!, Andea uses LED lights and various recycled plastic materials to provoke a dialogue about the interaction between people and new technologies. Of her "conversations in light," Andea says, "My work relies on human-made materials to create artificial environments that suggest 'beauty' assigned to the natural landscapes or environments. My installations insist on the visual transformation of inorganic into organic matter, and the blending of the organic with geometric." Curated by Sally Reynolds. ABOUT ADELA ANDEA Born in Romania in 1976, Adela Andea came to the United States in 1999. Her work was included in several exhibitions in California, Pennsylvania, New York and Texas. She graduated Valedictorian and Summa Cum Laude from the Painting program at the University of Houston.

The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals - Frick Collection
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

The Frick Collection recently announced the largest acquisition in its history — a promised gift of approximately 450 portrait medals from the incomparable collection of Stephen K. and Janie Woo Scher. Representing the development of the art of the portrait medal from its inception in fifteenth-century Italy to the nineteenth century, the Scher collection is arguably the world's most comprehensive and significant collection of portrait medals. Comments Director Ian Wardropper, "Henry Clay Frick had an abiding interest in portraiture as expressed in the paintings, sculpture, enamels, and works on paper he acquired. The Scher medals will coalesce beautifully with these holdings, being understood in our galleries within the broader contexts of European art and culture. At the same time, the intimate scale of the institution will offer a superb platform for the medals to be appreciated as an independent art form, one long overdue for fresh attention and public appreciation." To celebrate the promised gift, The Frick Collection will mount an exhibition this spring entitled The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals. The exhibition will explore the flourishing of the medallic arts in major European centers of artistic production and will feature superlative examples by masters of the art such as Pisanello (Italy), Dupré (France), and Reinhart (Germany). Taking and fresh approach to the study of medals, which have often been viewed in the past as specialist objects closer to the field of numismatics, this exhibition will examine medals within the larger context of art, honoring them as a triumph of sculptural production on a small scale. Visitors to the show will encounter a number of renowned sculptors who were also masters of the medal. The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals is organized by Aimee Ng, Associate Curator at the Frick, and Stephen K. Scher, an esteemed art historian as well as a collector. Accompanying the exhibition is a richly illustrated exhibition catalogue including an essay by Aimee Ng. (In the spring of 2018, a catalogue of the entire Scher Collection will be published, featuring essays by leading medals scholars and illustrated entries about each of the almost one thousand medals in the collection.)

This Ever New Self: Thoreau and His Journal - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862) occupies a lofty place in American cultural history. He spent two years in a cabin by Walden Pond and a single night in jail, and out of those experiences grew two of this country's most influential works: his book Walden and the essay known as "Civil Disobedience." But his lifelong journal—more voluminous by far than his published writings—reveals a fuller, more intimate picture of a man of wide-ranging interests and a profound commitment to living responsibly and passionately. This Ever New Self: Thoreau and His Journal brings together nearly one hundred items in the most comprehensive exhibition ever devoted to the author. Marking the 200th anniversary of Thoreau's birth and organized in partnership with the Concord Museum in his hometown of Concord, Massachusetts, the show centers on the journal he kept throughout his life and its importance in understanding the essential Thoreau. More than twenty of Thoreau's journal notebooks are shown along with letters and manuscripts, books from his library, pressed plants from his herbarium, and important personal artifacts. Also featured are the only two photographs for which he sat during his lifetime, shown together for the first time.

Henry James and American Painting - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

he analogy between the art of the painter and the art of the novelist is, so far as I am able to see, complete. Their inspiration is the same, their process (allowing for the different quality of the vehicle), is the same, their success is the same. They may learn from each other, they may explain and sustain each other. Their cause is the same, and the honour of one is the honour of another. Henry James and American Painting is the first exhibition to explore the author's deep and lasting interest in the visual arts and their profound impact on the literature he produced. Offering a fresh perspective on the master novelist, the show reveals the importance of James's friendships with American artists such as John La Farge (1835–1910), John Singer Sargent (1856–1925), and James McNeill Whistler (1834–1903). While the author decided early on that the pictorial arts were not to be the arena in which he would work, the painterly quality of his writing has enthralled readers for over a century. Co-curated by acclaimed novelist Colm Tóibín and Declan Kiely, head of the Morgan's Department of Literary and Historical Manuscripts, the exhibition includes a rich and eclectic selection of more than fifty paintings, drawings, watercolors, sculptures, photographs, manuscripts, letters, and printed books from two dozen museums and private collections in the United States, Great Britain, and Ireland. Together they weave an evocative story of fascinating artistic intersections.

Ryan Raftery: The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Martha Stewart - Joe's Pub
Through September 12, 2017 - New York

Ryan Raftery, creator and star of the smash hit Anna Wintour and Andy Cohen musicals, returns to Joe's Pub to premiere the final show in his "Titans of Media" trilogy based on the tale of America's first self-made female billionaire. "The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Martha Stewart" tells the fascinating story of the woman who changed the way we live our lives by daring us to try harder. From her humble beginnings in Nutley, New Jersey to her empire-building years in Westport, Connecticut, to her highly-publicized stint in federal prison, this is a chronicle of epically blind ambition set to the music of artists as varied as Beyonce, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Adele and Metallica. A native New Yorker and graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Ryan Raftery has been seen on television in Ugly Betty, What I Like About You, Malcolm in the Middle, and, most memorably, on Law & Order: SVU where he warmed hearts all across America as Dennis Faber, the Amish teenager with measles. He has written eight shows, including the aforementioned Wintour and Cohen musicals as well as Ryan Raftery & Friends: A Solo Act, Ryan Raftery's It Gets Worse and Ryan Raftery: King of the Jews.

Narrated by two-time Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor, Humpback Whales is an extraordinary journey into the mysterious world of one of nature's most awe-inspiring marine mammals.

Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the species and find out: why humpbacks seem to be the most acrobatic of all whales, how they produce their haunting songs, and what drives these intelligent, 55-foot-long, 50-ton animals to migrate up to 10,000 miles round trip every year.

Radical Bodies - The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts
Through September 16, 2017 - New York

Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, and Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 - 1972 n August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin, the inventor of task-based improvisation, taught an experimental workshop on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco, attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer. Within two years, Forti's conceptually forceful dance constructions premiered in Yoko Ono's loft in New York and Rainer co-founded the groundbreaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies examines the artistic relationships between Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, shedding light on each artist's contribution to history. Dance was a conceptual engine of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized, communitarian vision for performance that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day. Curated by Ninotchka D. Bennahum (Professor of Theater and Dance, UCSB), Wendy Perron (Former Editor in Chief, Dance Magazine; Adjunct Professor, NYU Tisch School of the Arts) and Bruce Robertson (Professor of Art History and Director of the AD&A Museum, UCSB), Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 – 1972 consists of photographs, rare films, and original choreographic scores and drawings by Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, as well as work inspired by them by such artists as Imogen Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, and George Brecht. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, co-published by University of California Press, with essays by Bennahum, Perron, and Robertson, as well as essays by John Rockwell (former dance critic of The New York Times), and Halprin collaborator Morton Subotnick. Also in the catalogue are never-before-published letters by Forti to Halprin in the early '60s. Radical Bodies is organized by The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara with generous support provided by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc., the Ceil and Michael Pulitzer Foundation, the Metabolic Studio, and Jody and John Arnhold, Victoria Hendler, and Eva and Yoel Haller. The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts gratefully acknowledges the leadership support of Dorothy and Lewis. B. Cullman. Additional support for exhibitions has been provided by Judy R. and Alfred A. Rosenberg and the Miriam and Harold Steinberg Foundation.

South Street Seaport Museum announces Free Fridays Program - South Street Seaport Museum
Through September 22, 2017 - New York

South Street Seaport Museum announces Free Fridays Program alternate Fridays through September 22, 2017 The South Street Seaport Museum announces its summer program of Free Fridays! Every other Friday between 3-7pm, the Seaport Museum offers free admission to its exhibitions, historic ship tours, educational and programmatic activities, artisan demonstrations at Bowne Printers, and more!    The Free Fridays program will feature special activities on selected topics; the upcoming Free Fridays program on June 16 will feature the Seaport Museum's flagship Wavertree and will offer visitors a special opportunity to step aboard, grab a halyard and raise one of the ship's sails!   The 2017 Free Fridays program is presented by The Howard Hughes Corporation andis supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.    On June 30th, the Free Fridays program will feature a special curatorial and collections walkthrough of the new exhibition, Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914, one of the first exhibitions to examine, side-by-side, the dichotomy between First-Class and Third-Class passengers aboard ocean liners in the early 20th century.    Ships like Titanic, Olympic, Lusitania, Mauretania, Aquitania, and Imperatordominated transatlantic travel. On each voyage, they transported thousands of people, First-Class passengers sailed across the Atlantic in the lap of luxury while Third-Class passengers made the voyage in the stuffy lower decks.   From 1900 to 1914, nearly 13 million immigrants traveling in Third Class arrived in the United States. During this same period, America's wealthiest citizens, totaling no more than a hundred thousand passengers each year, traveled to Europe in First Class, spending over $11.5 billion (2017) on luxury vacations. Even though First Class and Third Class sailed on the same ships, their journeys were worlds apart.   This exhibition will feature both original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport Museum's permanent collection including ocean liner memorabilia and ephemera, ceramics, and luggage trunks from both immigrants and First Class passengers. The exhibition will highlight a few ship models of New York Harbor working vessels that played critical roles in immigration, including a model of the Museum's lightship Ambrose (LV-87).    Ambrose, a floating lighthouse, stood watch at the front door to New York Harbor during the greatest period of immigration in US history. Her official duty was to mark the entrance to the Ambrose Channel, a deep channel dredged between 1900 and 1907 to allow larger ocean liners, the largest of which had doubled in size in those same years, safe access into the harbor. But Ambrosehad another vital role; her light was the first thing an immigrant would see as they entered New York Harbor, long before the buildings and piers on the waterfront, long before the Manhattan skyline, and long before the lighted torch of the Statue of Liberty.    Evoking the spirit of First-Class grandeur, a piece of wood paneling that once adorned the interior of the Smoking Room of the RMS Mauretania will be recreated by master woodcarver Deborah Mills throughout the run of the show. This work-in-progress will be on view in the exhibition space during regular hours Thursday through Sunday. Each Wednesday visitors can visit the Museum's Maritime Craft Center at 209 Water Street and watch as the artist brings the piece closer to the original.   The exhibition will familiarize viewers with passenger life aboard ocean liners, the defining differences between travel for wealthy Americans in First Class and future Americans immigrating to the United States in Third Class, and the continuing importance that immigration plays in American history.   The exhibition is curated by William Roka, Historian, and Michelle Kennedy, Collections and Curatorial Assistant, at the Seaport Museum. Exhibition design and art direction by Rob Wilson and Christine Picone of Bowne Printers, the Museum's historic letterpress shop.    This exhibition is made possible by generous support from Theodore W. Scull and is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.   ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic Seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Designated by Congress as America's National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of "Where New York Begins."

A Supple Perimeter - Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
Through September 24, 2017 -

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Arts Center at Governors Island hosts LMCC's summer exhibition, A Supple Perimeter, by artist, educator, and writer Kameelah Janan Rasheed. Free and open to the public, the exhibition will change over time, inviting audiences to both experience the evolution of the space in person and encounter a new installation upon multiple visits. A Supple Perimeter, Artist Statement Rasheed's research-based practice, which spans installation, photography, performance, publications, and printmaking, engages with figurative and literal language to interrogate how we read, write, consume, and distribute histories of Black folks. Invested in the wide permutations of Blackness, A Supple Perimeter explores the capacities of blackness and the quiet, blackness and the reticent, blackness and the private: an expansive blackness that allows for a Black subject with interiority and a strategic engagement with public(s). In A Supple Perimeter, Rasheed begins with her research into ecology, entropy and black traditions of experimental writing to construct an immersive ecosystem of existing and self-authored texts, unfinished videos, projections, objects and excerpts of sound experiments that comment on selective legibility; the tension between public and private selves; black traditions of covert literacies and language systems; technologies of counter-surveillance; as well as systems of self-publishing. Delicately moving between opacity and transparency, interiority and public pronouncements, in A Supple Perimeter bodies of work are burrowed into the walls, others erupt from the corners, while some only become visible through specific physical engagements. Faced with the assertion of an ahistorical and stable Black subject who is both publicly available and fungible, Rasheed invites the audience to engage with an unstable installation space that mirrors of the agility of Blackness, her blackness, in an installation that will shift in form and content over the course of the installation period using a set of rules derived from constrained writing techniques and performance scores. Each iterative change to the installation will be accompanied by a piece of writing and a map of changes published at www.kameelahr.com/a-supple-perimeter, while weekly images will be posted to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using the hashtags #asuppleperimeter, #kameelahjananrasheed, #lmcc and #r2r. Organized by Melissa Levin A Supple Perimeter is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the summer, May 27–Sep 24 from 12pm-5pm. A Supple Perimeter is open every day during River To River 2017, Jun 15 – Jun 25 from 12pm-5pm. Reception: Saturday, June 24, 3-5pm

If/Then & Questions - Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
Through September 24, 2017 - New York

In addition to a solo exhibition in the gallery at The Arts Center at Governors Island, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council hosts a public art installation by artist, educator, and writer Kameelah Janan Rasheed. Rasheed's If/Then (2014-present) and Questions (2017) will be installed on the façade of the historic Fort Jay Theater on Governors Island using the existing poster cases and original marquee board. Taking advantage of a space that would have typically advertised live entertainment and movies from 1939-1996 to U.S. military and their families living and working on Governors Island, Rasheed's new project Questions and the ongoing If/Then both aim to create a different kind of moment of pause for a viewer: to consider an existential question or to process the association of poignant, two-word alliterative phrases, all composed by the artist. On a biweekly cycle, the posters in the cases and the text in the marquee board will be changed by Rasheed. The marquee board will feature a new question concerning a contemporary context. The posters will feature alliterative word pairings, each of which contain a multiplicity of meanings. Each change will be documented via Instagram. The final images of the marquee board will be compiled into a small zine made available at the close of the show.The installation's first question is, "Are we there yet?" Organized by Melissa Levin

The World Is Sound - The Rubin Museum
Through September 30, 2017 - Chelsea

A brand new exhibit where visitors will explore how sound and our sense of hearing shape our daily lives, our traditions, our history, and all of existence. Featuring work by more than 20 artists, The World Is Sound juxtaposes new site-specific commissions and works by prominent contemporary sound artists with historical objects from the museum's collection of Tibetan Buddhist art to encourage reflection on how we listen and to challenge entrenched ways of thinking. The Museum space itself will become an instrument of transformation. The centerpiece of the exhibition is Le Corps Sonore (Sound Body), an immersive, site-specific installation composed for the Rubin Museum's iconic spiral staircase by the pioneering electronic sound artists Éliane Radigue, Laetitia Sonami, and Bob Bielecki. Ambient drone sounds inspired by Buddhist philosophy are "tuned" to the building, and will ascend and descend as visitors wind their way up the staircase. The subtlety and ephemerality of the sounds prepare the listener for understanding a core tenet of Buddhist philosophy, where music is a metaphor for change and impermanence. As with the entire exhibition, Le Corps Sonore invites visitors to slow down and consider their bodily engagement with sound, space, and their individual perceptions. The exhibition also includes Tibetan Buddhist ritual music from several monasteries in Nepal and India, the voices of Rubin visitors recorded in the OM Lab, and software and acoustic design by Terence Caulkins of Arup. Daniel Neumann is Lead Acoustic Designer for the exhibition.

Late Antique Textiles and Modern Design - The Met
Through October 01, 2017 - New York

Artists and designers often look to the past to find inspiration for their own work. This exhibition—drawn entirely from The Met collection—compares foliate patterns and roundels that are found on textiles from the Late Roman, Byzantine, and Early Islamic periods in Egypt to similar motifs in postcards by the Wiener Werkstätte and on garments designed by Mariano Fortuny (1871–1949). Created in Egypt between about 200 and 600, the textiles on view include a child's dress; fragments from a sleeve, tunic, and blanket or cover; and other fragments whose original use is not known. Variations of the scrolling vines and stylized motifs that adorn these textiles can be seen on works created nearly 1500 years later. The renowned Spanish-born designer Mariano Fortuny was active in Venice, where he founded a textile workshop and commercial silk printing factory. His exquisite designs fuse the ancient and the modern, the local and the exotic. Three different Fortuny-designed silk coats from the first three decades of the 20th century are shown over the course of the exhibition. In cut and ornament, these items harken back to Late Antique historical sources. Founded in 1903 in reaction both to the neoclassical academies of Vienna and increasing industrialization, the Wiener Werkstätte collective sought to incorporate arts and crafts into all aspects of daily life and placed a premium on the handmade. Eight color lithographs created between 1907 and 1912 by various artists and designers affiliated with the group are also on view. Motifs similar to those found on Late Antique textiles were used as graphic elements in these cards and postcards.

On October 16, 2015, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will unveil On the Line: Intrepid and the Vietnam War, a major exhibition exploring the events and impact of the Vietnam War through the lens of Intrepid's history. The exhibition, which coincides with the 40th anniversary of the conclusion of the war, will offer a site-specific immersion into an important chapter of American history.The legendary aircraft carrier Intrepid served three tours of duty in Vietnam between 1966 and 1969. Set within the very spaces where men lived and served, the exhibition will focus on the experiences of Intrepid and its crew "on the line"—the periods when the ship was active in the Gulf of Tonkin, launching aircraft for missions over mainland Vietnam. This localized history will serve as the starting point for understanding the larger historical landscape, including the Cold War, Operation Rolling Thunder and protests at home. The exhibition will include artifacts, photographs and film clips from the Museum's collection, many of which will be on display for the first time. The exhibition will also draw from the Museum's Oral History Project, an initiative launched in 2013 to record and preserve the stories of those who served on Intrepid, offering visitors the chance to hear the experiences of veterans in their own words, and to learn history firsthand. The exhibition, which is free with the price of admission, will include education programs for teachers and students, and a series of public programs to generate conversation and artistic expression.

Mad. Sq. Art: Josiah Mcelheny - Madison Square Park
Through October 08, 2017 - New York

Madison Square Park Conservancy is proud to announce its thirty-fourth exhibition, Prismatic Park by artist and MacArthur Foundation Fellow recipient Josiah McElheny. The project features three large sculptures of painted wood and prismatic glass on view in Madison Square Park from June 13, 2017 through October 8, 2017. The outdoor exhibition will comprise three exquisite sculptures in painted wood and prismatic glass: minimal, almost architectural forms that will create new spaces within the Park for the creation of music, dance, and poetry: a curvilinear, translucent blue sound wall for experimental music; a circular, reflective green floor for vanguard dance; and a vaulted-roofed luminous red and yellow pavilion for poetry. Each will refract the surrounding natural light, beckoning the passerby and regular Park visitor. The three structures will form open, stage-like platforms—in both the physical and metaphorical sense—for the collaborating choreographers, dancers, musicians, and poets who will be working next to them, on them, and under them in the summer of 2017. Throughout the exhibition, three nonprofit art organizations based in New York—Blank Forms, Danspace Project, and Poets House—will "inhabit" the Park to realize new commissions. The resident artists will create ambitious new work that summons the potential for imagination, creativity, and performance inspired by spontaneous audiences and chance encounters that only a public place, like an urban park, can offer. McElheny's sculptures are there to galvanize new movement, sound, and language. He has also offered the participating artists a prompt to consider the Park not only for performances, but also for rehearsals or even impromptu workshops. When not occupied by the resident artists, the public will have access to the sculptures to view or to adopt as a framework for their own innovative use. Interpretive materials, including dedicated Prismatic Park signage, a weekly free poster with images inspired by the commissions, a scholarly catalogue, and the Conservancy website will allow visitors to reflect on how public spaces can become sites to articulate diverse civic values including creative expression and chance meetings. In recent years, various parks have been especially important as sites for political assertion, such as Gezi Park in Istanbul, Tahrir Square in Cairo, and Zuccotti Park in New York. McElheny takes impetus from the activism of recent years, but Prismatic Park reconceives this ferment as an idealistic, almost utopian concept for the shared responsibility towards a public site that still allots space for the highly individual, unique voice. Josiah McElheny (American, b. 1966) holds a distinct role in the contemporary art field. He works in a range of mediums, including sculpture, installation, film, writing, and performance. In Prismatic Park, McElheny continues his examination of the way the transparency of glass is strongly linked to ideas within Modernist art, architecture, and philosophy. In this project he proposes that public sculpture might become a catalyst for the creation of new works by augmenting physical presence with the construction of shared spaces. Madison Square Park's 6.2-acre site welcomes more than 60,000 daily visitors—a richly diverse audience including local residents, families, public school groups and day camps, office workers, students, artists, and international tourists. Josiah McElheny emphasizes that this project is one of shared effort, between himself, the Park, the collaborating artists and, not least, inhabitants of and visitors to New York. "One of the most urgent societal issues today is how can we best share what little public space is left to us. Prismatic Park attempts to provide a partial answer to this question by suggesting that the arts can expand existing public spaces through the visionary efforts of individuals and small groups, creating works of art, dance, music and poetry in the middle of our city." "Our program of public art continues to push the boundaries of this field. Josiah McElheny's Prismatic Park is a hopeful use of a Park site where sculpture and performance will seamlessly unite for the tremendous benefit of Parkgoers," said Keats Myer, Executive Director, Madison Square Park Conservancy. "We are delighted to have this project on view in the summer of 2017 and to collaborate with our colleagues at Blank Forms, Danspace Project, and Poets House." Brooke Kamin Rapaport, Director and Martin Friedman Senior Curator, Mad. Sq. Art, said: "Josiah McElheny's Prismatic Park scrutinizes and poses alternatives for the use of public space for a democracy, for solidarity, for optimism. This project takes the impetus from recent activism in public parks and squares, but its core comes from an idealistic, almost utopian, concept of the optimism for the shared responsibility of a public site by people and the artist's role in solidifying that contract. By making three stunning prismatic glass works and by partnering with three nonprofits, McElheny is positing his works as platforms for questions of how sculpture can revamp other disciplines." A celebrated series of sculpture exhibitions by living artists, Mad. Sq. Art was launched by Madison Square Park Conservancy in 2004 to bring free public art programs to New York. The program has received extensive critical and public attention since its inception and has developed into a world-class cultural institution. Its ambition and scale expands each year alongside an increasingly diverse range of innovative, world-class artists.

Madison Square Art: Josiah McElheny - Madison Square Park, Sol LeWitt Lawn
Through October 08, 2017 - Flatiron District

This summer, Madison Square Park will contain three new outdoor sculptures. Made of wood and glass, these architectural forms establish spaces within the park that will house music, dance, and poetry performances. They're a sight to behold, but also highly functional in their design as they refract natural light and create stage-like platforms. Families can enjoy their beauty on a daily basis, or stop by for any of the pre-scheduled performances. Check madisonsquarepark.org for dates and times.

Colors of the Universe: Chinese Hardstone Carvings - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Hardstone carving is one of the oldest arts in China, dating back to the fifth millennium B.C. It was not until the Qing dynasty, however, that an abundant supply of raw material, extraordinary craftsmanship, and keen imperial patronage allowed the art to flourish. During the 18th century, widespread prosperity and successful military campaigns brought political stability, while also securing the trade routes that permitted the importation of gemstones over the Silk Roads and through sea trade routes from as far away as Europe. Showcasing a selection of 75 exquisite carvings drawn from The Met collection, this exhibition presents the lapidary art of China's Qing dynasty (1644–1911). Featuring not only jade, the most esteemed of East Asian gems, but also agate, malachite, turquoise, quartz, amber, coral, and lapis lazuli, the exhibition reveals the extensive variety of hardstones and full palette of vibrant colors that were favored at the imperial court. Exploring the diverse subjects and styles of Qing lapidary art, Colors of the Universe illustrates the extraordinary imagination and technical virtuosity behind these miniature sculptures.

From the Imperial Theater: Chinese Opera Costumes of the 18th and 19th Centuries - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Drawn entirely from The Met collection, this exhibition examines these luxury textiles from artistic and technical points of view. It is organized in two rotations. The first focuses on costumes used in dramas based on historical events; and the second will feature costumes from plays derived from legends and myths. The presentation showcases eight robes, each of which was created for a specific role—court lady, official, general, monk, nun, and immortal. A set of album leaves faithfully depicting theatrical characters wearing such robes is also displayed. The 18th and 19th centuries witnessed a flowering of Chinese drama. Under the patronage of the Qing court (1644–1911), performances—including the "Peking Opera"—filled the Forbidden City in Beijing. A form of traditional Chinese theater, Peking Opera was developed fully by the mid-19th century, and because of the form's minimal stage settings and the importance of exaggerated gestures and movements, costume played an unusually significant role. This exhibition includes superb examples with interior markings indicating their use in court productions.

Cinnabar: The Chinese Art of Carved Lacquer, 14th to 19th Century - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

This exhibition, featuring 45 magnificent examples of Chinese carved lacquer drawn entirely from The Met collection, will explore the development of this significant artistic tradition. Among the objects on view will be works created as birthday gifts bearing symbols of long life, such as peaches, cranes, the character for longevity (shou), and representations of children. One of the highlights is a unique, large, lobed tray of the 14th century, carved with a delightful scene showing two women and 33 children. Other early pieces on view include a dish with a scene of long-tailed birds and hollyhocks. A rare screen that was produced by Lu Guisheng—a famous 19th-century artist and one of the few individuals working in lacquer whose name is recorded in Chinese history—provides a spectacular finale to this tradition. Lacquer, the resin of a family of trees found in southern China, hardens when exposed to oxygen and humidity and can become a natural plastic. Tinted with cinnabar (red), carbon (black), and other minerals, it has been used as an artistic medium in China since at least the sixth century B.C. Carved lacquer, which involves applying multiple layers of lacquer onto a substructure (usually wood) and then entails carving through the layers, is the most laborious and time-consuming of all lacquering techniques.

Eloise at the Museum - New-York Historical Society
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

On view June 30 - October 9, 2017, Eloise at the Museum reveals the creative collaboration between cabaret star Kay Thompson (1909-1998) and the young illustrator Hilary Knight (b. 1926) that brought the precocious character to life.

Asian Art at 100: A History in Photographs - The Met
Through October 11, 2017 - New York

Since The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870, the institution's physical space and collection have grown and its curatorial departments have diversified. The first Asian works of art to enter the collection—mostly ceramics and lacquers—were acquired in 1879 and originally accommodated in what was then called the Department of Decorative Arts. Only in 1915 was a separate Department of Far Eastern Art established, and it was not until 1986 that its name was changed to the Department of Asian Art. The timeline presented in the photographs in this exhibition chronicles the changing face of The Met's galleries of Asian art as the building's footprint has expanded, exhibition styles have evolved, and the collection has grown. Forever a work in progress, The Met's collection of Asian art is ultimately the product of the passion and scholarship of the many collectors, curators, donors, dealers, and directors who have together shaped the Museum's holdings and legacy.

South Street Seaport Museum: Sail New York Harbor Aboard Schooner Pioneer - South Street Seaport Museum
Through October 14, 2017 - New York

South Street Seaport Museum Sail New York Harbor Aboard Schooner Pioneer The South Street Seaport Museum announces the beginning of the 2017 season to sail New York Harbor aboard the historic 1885 schooner Pioneer. Public sails began on Saturday May 27, 2017. Spend an afternoon at the Museum! Pioneer tickets include free admission to the Museum's historic ships and exhibitions on the day of your sail. Just bring the ticket to the Museum before or after your sail! The Museum now offers later hours allowing visitors to see the Museum's exhibitions before or after their Pioneer sail.  The Museum's historic ships and main exhibition space will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 11am-7pm from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.   Tickets for Pioneer are available at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/947114.   Pioneer is also available for charters. Bring friends, family, coworkers, and colleagues aboard for a private 2-hour sail on New York Harbor with striking views of the lower Manhattan skyline, Statue of Liberty and Governors Island. Customized scheduling and catering recommendations are available. Contact [email protected] for details.     ABOUT THE SCHOONER PIONEER In the days before paved roads, small coastal schooners such as Pioneer were the delivery trucks of their era, carrying various cargoes between coastal communities: lumber and stone from the islands of Maine, brick on the Hudson River, and oyster shell on the Chesapeake Bay. Almost all American cargo sloops and schooners were wood, but because Pioneer was built in what was then this country's center of iron shipbuilding, shewas launched in 1885 with a wrought-iron hull. She was the first of only two cargo sloops built of iron in this country, and is the only iron-hulled American merchant sailing vessel still in existence.    By 1930, when new owners moved her from the Delaware River to Massachusetts, she had been fitted with an engine, and was no longer using sails. Beginning in 1966 she was substantially rebuilt, turning her back into a sailing vessel once again and relaunching her in 1968. Since 1970 she has been a part of the South Street Seaport Museum's collection, plying the waters of New York Harbor carrying adults and children instead of cargo in her current role as a piece of "living history."    Today Visitors can board Pioneer for 2-hour day and evening cruises as she sails New York Harbor May through October. School classes and other groups can book exciting education programs and Pioneer is available for private charter throughout her season. You can join the crew too! Pioneer is an award-winning sail training vessel teaching traditional maritime skills, and the art of tall ship sailing to volunteers of all kinds. Pioneer offers an experience that is unique in New York. Not a replica, but rather an authentic 1885 sailing vessel, a trip aboard Pioneer provides more than just an enjoyable cruise on the harbor; visitors can take part in using a 132 year old museum object for exactly the purpose which it was built: sailing.    There is no equal to a sail on Pioneer-step aboard, grab a halyard, or sit back and feel the wind on your face and become a part of "Where New York Begins."   ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic Seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Designated by Congress as America's National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of "Where New York Begins."

Hilary Knight's Stage Struck World - Lincoln Center
Through October 14, 2017 - New York

ilary Knight was born stage-struck, ninety years ago. Best known as the illustrator of the American classic Eloise, he cites the performing arts as the single greatest influence on his life and career. As a child, Knight was fascinated by the circus and could not get enough of Broadway. His artist parents introduced him to musicals with Jumbo in 1935. His early theatrical influences were Ethel Merman in Red, Hot and Blue; Gertrude Lawrence in Lady in the Dark; and the sensational Carmen Miranda in The Streets of Paris. The movies were another source of inspiration and obsession. Designer Adrian's extravagant costumes for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) mesmerized him; child star Sabu in Elephant Boy (1937) became a hero. After studying at the Art Students' League with Reginald Marsh, and then a stint in the US Navy in World War II, Knight designed sets under the exacting eye of the legendary George Abbott at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine. Eloise became a national and international bestseller in the 1950's, and Knight's children's book career took off with titles such as Where's Wallace, and The Circus is Coming! Yet his work in the theater continued with iconic Broadway posters, including No, No, Nanette, Irene, Half a Sixpence, and the burlesque musical Sugar Babies, starring Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller, among many others. Now for the first time, Hilary Knight's stage-struck life is the subject of a comprehensive exhibition that includes original artwork for posters; theatrical illustrations for Vanity Fair magazine (where Knight is a contributing editor); Knight's most recent work — three-dimensional portraits in stage-like settings — and costume and set designs for performances and revues that reveal that for Hilary Knight, all the world is indeed a stage.

Poussin, Claude, and French Drawing in the Classical Age - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through October 15, 2017 - New York

The French refer to the seventeenth century as the Grand Siècle, or the Great Century. Under the rule of Louis XIII and Louis XIV, the period saw a dramatic increase in French political and military power, the maturation of French courtly life at Versailles, and an unparalleled flourishing of the arts. Poussin, Claude, and French Drawing in the Classical Age explores the work of some of the most celebrated artists of the time. More than fifty drawings largely from the Morgan's collections—including works by Claude Lorrain (1600–1682), Nicolas Poussin (1594–1665), Jacques Callot (1592–1635), and Charles Le Brun (1619–1690)—are on view in the exhibition. Together they demonstrate the era's distinctive approach to composition and subject matter, informed by principles of rationalism, respect for the art of classical antiquity, and by a belief in a natural world governed by divine order. Poussin, Claude, and French Drawing in the Classical Age is made possible with generous support from the Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Charitable Trust and the estate of Alex Gordon.

In 201 BCE, the first emperor of the Han Dynasty knighted his younger brother as the first king of the Chu Kingdom, which was centered in Peng Cheng, today's Xuzhou, in northern Jiangsu Province. Ruling under the emperor's protection, and given special exemption from imperial taxes, elites in this Kingdom enjoyed a lavish lifestyle. Twelve generations of kings lived, died, and were buried in sumptuous tombs carved into the nearby rocky hills. Since the mid 20th Century, nearly hundred tombs were excavated, revealing contents that testify to the Chu kings' affluence, as well as their beliefs in immortality and the afterlife. One of the most stunning finds was an elaborate jade sarcophagi burial suit, assembled from thousands of pieces of jade, the precious stone adored by Chinese people since the Neolithic period as an auspicious material that could ensure immortality. This exhibition will feature the jade suit, and other tomb contents that highlight how these powerful and wealthy kings prepared for death and envisioned their afterlife to come.

Mccoy Tyner - Blue Note
Through November 27, 2017 - New York

Jazz pianist McCoy Tyner is widely considered one of the finest and most influential pianists in jazz history. His signature booming left-hand and fleeting right created a unique sound that can be heard on his recordings as a sideman with the John Coltrane Quartet in the 1960s and on his 80-plus albums as a leader. Tyner's most recent project for McCoy Tyner Music/Half Note Records is his first solo effort in almost a decade titled Solo: Live From San Francisco. The release is the third for his label and features eleven solo vignettes recorded at the Herbst Theater in 2007. Tyner's blues based piano style, replete with sophisticated chords and an explosively percussive left hand has transcended conventional styles to become one of the most identifiable sounds in improvised music. His harmonic contributions and dramatic rhythmic devices form the vocabulary of a majority of jazz pianists. Born in 1938 in Philadelphia, he became a part of the fertile jazz and R&B scene of the early '50s. His parents imbued him with a love for music from an early age. His mother encouraged him to explore his musical interests through formal training. At 17 he began a career-changing relationship with Miles Davis' sideman saxophonist John Coltrane. After Coltrane left Davis' band, Tyner joined Coltrane for the classic album My Favorite Things (1960), and remained at the core of what became one of the most seminal groups in jazz history, The John Coltrane Quartet. The band, which also included drummer Elvin Jones and bassist Jimmy Garrison, had an extraordinary chemistry, fostered in part by Tyner's almost familial relationship with Coltrane. Tyner has always expanded his vision of the musical landscape and incorporated new elements, whether from distant continents or diverse musical influences. More recently he has arranged for big bands, employed string arrangements, and even reinterpreted popular music. Today, Tyner has released nearly 80 albums under his name, earned four Grammys and was awarded Jazz Master from the National Endowment for the Arts in 2002. He continues to leave his mark on generations of improvisers, and yet remains a disarmingly modest and spiritually directed man.

nspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form.

Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 17th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!

Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) Announces 25th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign - Theater Resources Unlimited
Through December 31, 2017 - New York

25 years of service to the theater. Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) Announces 25th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign: $25 for 25 In celebration of their 25th Anniversary, Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU)announces a fundraising campaign: $25 for 25, in honor of 25 years of service to the theater community. The goal is to raise $25,000 by end of year to help support and expand the educational programming TRU offers the theater community, as well as to make possible travel stipends to out-of-state writers who are accepted into the annual TRU Voices Reading Series. In a nation where arts programs have been depleted if not discarded, TRU provides an economic opportunity to continue an education in the art (and business) of producing theater. As a professional producer for over twenty-five years, TRU has given me the opportunity to retrace my journey, re-confirm my knowledge. - Michael Alden, theater and film producer (Disgraced, Come from Away, Grey Gardens, Not That Jewish, Bat Boy; films: The Hours, Kissing Jessica Stein)   The quarter-century of accomplishments of this modest arts service organization are surprising to those who do not know TRU, including: 25 YEARS of helping producers and all theater professionals understand and better navigate the business of theater; 25 YEARS of putting people together at all levels of experience, and offering some of the best networking opportunities in the business; 25 YEARS of providing a forum for people to put out requests and offers of services to their peers; 25 YEARS of cultivating relationships between the producer and artist communities and encouraging better communication; 25 YEARS of monthly panels to keep the community current on developments and grounded in the basics of the business. With the funding environment for the arts being more uncertain than ever, TRU hopes to assure their continued work by reaching a minimum goal of $25,000 in donations by end of the year.

While it may not be a punch line, the answer for many people has been joining at a group called Theater Resources Unlimited." - Show Business Weekly Here are just some of the reasons to support TRU: - The TRU Voices Play Reading Series has helped develop 63 new plays, sometimes matching playwrights with producers, other times providing a writer and producer with a "first date" opportunity (all expenses paid) to get to know each other - and the work itself  - a little better. Taxi to Jannah  by Mark Sickman went on to productions at Queens Theatre in the Park and 59e59; Missives by Garret Jon Groenveld moved to an off-Broadway run at 59e59; The Forgetting Curve by Vanda had a subsequent run in Boston; Film Chinois by Damon Chua and Pied a Terre  by John Anastasi were both published by Samuel French and have had further productions in and outside of New York; Appendage by Derek Murphy moved into a run at the 1st Irish Festival; Echoes of Octavia by Michelle Johnson was optioned for development by Rhymes over Beats; Angels and Ministers of Grace... by Elaine Smith had a run at NJ Repertory Company; and The Assignment used the TRU series as a stepping stone to a recent off-Broadway run. - The TRU Voices Musicals Reading Series has helped develop 45 new works of musical theater, nurturing 45 writer-producer teams. Saint Heaven by Martin Casella and Keith Gordon, with TRU producer Van Dean, went on to developmental productions at Village Theatre in Issaqua and a full production at Stamford Center for the Performing Arts; The Great American Trailer Park Musical had a major off-Broadway run in 2005 and national tour; nor'mal went on to win a prestigious Jonathan Larsen Award and had productions in universities across the country; Sunfish was the winner of the top jury honor (Best American Musical) at the 2013 Daegu International Musical Festival in South Korea, as well as a 2005 Jonathan Larson Award recipient; and My Life Is a Musical was optioned for commercial development from our series and had a production at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor. - The TRU Audition Event has helped over 200 actors every year find jobs and helped over 60 producers and theater companies each year find actors to cast in their shows. They have done this annual event now for 14 years! - 26 Writer-Producer Speed Dates have provided 550 total opportunities for writers to learn how to effectively pitch their work, as well as giving them the rare chance to meet as many as 20 commercial, indie and/or not-for-profit producers at each event. And yes, matches were made - Eleven years of Producer Development and Mentorship has molded and nurtured over 200 producers and self-producing artists, including many who have gone on to win Tony Awards (including Van Dean, Jane Dubin and Meredith Lucio); as well as others who have contributed richly to the indie and not-for-profit theater landscape and provided countless opportunities for a dazzling diversity of voices to be heard. - Other TRU Beginnings workshops have offered opportunities for early development of new work, including How to Write a Musical That Works and our innovative Director-Writer Communications Lab. - 25 years of monthly panels, an average of 10 panels a year - that's 250 chances to hear some of the smartest people in the business talk about everything you need to know about producing, and so much more!    Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) is the leading network for developing theater professionals, a twenty-five year old 501c3 nonprofit organization created to help producers produce, emerging theater companies to emerge healthily and all theater professionals to understand and navigate the business of the arts. Membership includes self-producing artists as well as career producers and theater companies.    TRU publishes an email community newsletter of services, goods and productions; presents the TRU VOICES Annual New Play Reading Series and Annual New Musicals Reading Series, two new works series in which TRU underwrites developmental readings to nurture new shows as well as new producers for theater; offers a Producer Development & Mentorship Program whose mentors are among the most prominent producers and general managers in New York theater, and also presents Producer Boot Camp workshops to help aspirants develop the business skills they need.

Mummies - American Museum of Natural History
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

For thousands of years, peoples around the world practiced mummification as a way of preserving and honoring their dead. Mummies brings you face to face with some of these ancient individuals and reveals how scientists are using modern technology to glean stunning details about them and their cultures. In Mummies, ancient remains from the Nile Valley of Africa and the Andes Mountains of South America will be on view, allowing visitors to connect with cultures from the distant past. Mummification, a more widespread practice than most think, was used not only for royal Egyptians but also for common people and even animals. The process was employed by cultures around the world. In the Chancay culture of Peru, mummifying deceased family members meant relatives could keep connected with their loved ones; some families even brought mummy bundles to festivals. Egyptians, on the other hand, created mummies to help individuals enter the afterlife, often encasing the mummies in elaborately painted sarcophagi. At Mummies, interactive touch tables let visitors virtually "unravel" or see inside mummies as they delve deep into the unique stories of the people or animals who lie within. Other parts of the exhibition showcase the latest isotopic and DNA testing being performed on mummies, and explain how these sophisticated analytical techniques are helping scientists discover important clues about long-vanished practices. Mummies was developed by The Field Museum, Chicago.

Video Arcade: Changing Exhibitions Gallery - Museum of the Moving Image
Through January 15, 2018 - Astoria

In 1980, $2.8 billion in quarters were pumped into video arcade games in the United States, more than triple the revenue from any previous year. The video arcade had arrived, as a popular culture phenomenon and a vital force in the entertainment industry. Improved graphics, game design, and marketing made such games as Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, and Pac-Man into addictive and commercially successful hits. At their peak, there were more than 10,000 video arcades across the country. Within a decade, the rise of the personal computer and home consoles would mark the end of the video arcade’s golden age. This arcade allows visitors to play 23 of the era’s most beloved games, in their original form. Games on view include: 10 Yard Fight (1983) Arkanoid (1986) Battlezone (1980) Centipede (1980) Defender (1981) Dig Dug (1982) Donkey Kong (1981) Frogger (1981) Galaxy Force II (1988) Gauntlet (1985) Karate Champ (1984) Mortal Kombat (1992) Ms. Pac-Man (1981) NBA Jam (1993) Out Run (1986) Pole Position (1982) Q*Bert (1999) Robotron 2084 (1982) Star Wars (1983) Terminator 2 (1991) Track and Field (1983) Tron (1981) Zaxxon (1982) Tokens are required for play and may be purchased in the gallery at token machines or in the Museum store.

Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawing #370 - The Met
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) executed drawings by hand throughout his life; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed for limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architectural settings. Initially executed by drafters, these works in their finished state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art, as opposed to the work's material existence. "For each work of art that becomes physical," he wrote, "there are many variations that do not." Sol LeWitt's 1982 Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks. The drawing will be on view in its complete state through January 28, 2018, when it will be painted over.

San Marco Quartet - Arts Brookfield
Through February 21, 2018 - New York

San Marco Quartet layers all the actions of people and pigeons on Piazza San Marco in Venice into a pair of evolving images showing two views. The images are lit by movement; things that are not moving are invisible. Walking pigeons leave worm-like traces. Gathered people disappear through their shifting motions. Tour groups flow across the image like a river. The left side combines the activities into a very long exposed image that develops over several minutes. In the projection on the right, the past fades more quickly. The moving images are presented as two video projections mirrored at their point of meeting. They use the same material and with differences in how time is portrayed. They present a record of the temporary social architecture that is shaped by the permanent physical architecture of the piazz ABOUT DAVID ROKEBY David Rokeby is an installation artist based in Toronto, Canada. He has been creating and exhibiting since 1982. For the first part of his career he focused on interactive pieces that directly engage the human body, or that involve artificial perception systems. In the last decade, his practice has expanded to included video, kinetic and static sculpture. His work has been performed and exhibited in shows across Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia. Awards include the first BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) award for Interactive Art in 2000, a 2002 Governor General's award in Visual and Media Arts and the Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica for Interactive Art 2002.

Views of Rome and Naples: Oil Sketches from the Thaw Collection - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

During the second half of the eighteenth-century, a journey to Italy was considered an essential component in the education of young artists and noblemen from Northern Europe. Although Venice and Florence were requisite stops on the journey, artists tended to make their longest stay in Rome, and they generally also spent time in Naples. Both cities offered celebrated archeological sites and a taste of the unspoiled rural life of the campagna. Working outdoors, artists recorded their observations of these natural and man-made wonders in small-scale studies, mostly executed with oil paint on paper. In these oils, painters captured the grandiosity of Rome's classical ruins and the sublime natural beauty of Naples, with its famous view of Mount Vesuvius. Artists from France, Belgium, Germany, Norway, and Sweden are featured in this selection. Views of Rome and Naples is the fifth exhibition in a series drawn from the collection of oil sketches acquired by Morgan Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare. Mr. Thaw is also an honorary trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Sculpture in the Woods - Rockland Center for the Arts
Through April 29, 2018 - West Nyack

Rockland Center for the Arts, in partnership with Collaborative Concepts, have sited sculptures by 12 regional artists on RoCA's new nature trails just off the Catherine Konner Sculpture Park. Artists create and exhibit site-specific pieces relating to the environment and man, inspired by the natural habitat of the lower Hudson Valley. Artists will address ideas of light, organics, recycling and sustainability through these sculptures. Some may even explore the passage of time, loss or regeneration. Visitors will be able to see the connection between nature and sculpture and how nature can inform design, illuminating the bond between art and nature. The idea is to have adults and children connect with nature, to relieve the ‘nature deficit disorder’ we have these days. Perfectly placed sculptures, visible through and around the natural habitat brings a fresh enchantment to these trails. A glimpse of an art piece beckons the visitor to meander slowly through the paths and observe the intricacies of each exceptional work displayed within the landscape. The sculpture trail connects to the Palisades Park. This tourist destination will have an emotional connection for visitors with nature, the art and inspire all to spend more time outdoors while paying homage to the creative spirit that lives right here in the Hudson Valley and Rockland. The exhibits will be on view May 21, 2017 – April 30, 2018, free and open to the public from dawn to dusk. Rockland Center for the Arts is located at 27 S. Greenbush Rd., West Nyack, NY. Gallery hours are: Mon-Fri 10-4 pm; Sat and Sun 1-4 pm. For more information visit www.rocklandartcenter.org or call 845-358-0877. RoCA’s programs are made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

The New Yorker - National September 11 Memorial Museum

New on View "Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker" is an exhibition of 33 covers from the weekly news and culture magazine.

After 9/11, somber imagery emerged. While the destruction of the towers was not depicted, the anxiety and sadness engulfing the nation took form on New Yorker covers after the attacks. Over the years, the covers commemorated the loss of the towers while documenting the revitalization of the site. The exhibition runs through May 2018.

Inside You - American Musuem of Natural History
Through June 16, 2019 - New York

Did you know that your gastrointestinal tract is home to about 100 trillion bacteria? That's more organisms than there are stars in the Milky Way! Our bodies are home to many trillions of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other organisms collectively called the human microbiome. In any human, microbial genes outnumber the genes in human DNA by more than 100 to one. This new perspective leads us to look at our bodies not just as individuals, but as entire ecosystems.Inside You explores the rapidly evolving science that is revolutionizing how we view human health and introduces some of the scientists who are breaking new ground in microbiome research.Inspired by the Museum's popular exhibition The Secret World Inside You, this exhibition introduces visitors to microbes that live in, on, and around all of us. Engaging graphics detail how microbes aid digestion, influence your immune system, and help fight harmful microbes. You'll find out how we acquire our microbiome and how it is shaped by the foods we eat and the environment we live in. Inside You is co-curated by Susan Perkins and Rob DeSalle, curators in the Museum's Division of Invertebrate Zoology and the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics. Inside You is proudly supported by the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson. This exhibition is made possible by the generosity of the Arthur Ross Foundation.

The museum adds another must-see exhibit opening on January 15, a cast of a 122-foot-long dinosaur Titanosaur that is part of a special year of dinosaur events, exhibitions, and digital offerings. Paleontologists have inferred that this dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, weighed in at around 77 tons—as much as 14 or 15 African elephants. In preparation for adding this colossal new exhibit, the museum closed the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center in September to remove the hall's current incumbent: a life-sized—but, by comparison, diminutive—fleshed-out model of a juvenile Barosaurus that has been on display since the completion of the fourth floor in June 1996. The new, much larger occupant will graze the gallery's approximately 19-foot-high ceilings and, at 122 feet (37.2 meters), is just a bit too long to fit completely into the space. Instead, its neck and head will extend out towards the elevator banks, welcoming visitors to the "dinosaur" floor.

Connected Worlds - New York Hall of Science
Through January 31, 2020 - Flushing Meadows, Queens

The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) will open Connected Worlds, its exciting and groundbreaking new exhibition on environmental sustainability, on June 27, 2015. Presented in NYSCI's iconic Great Hall, Connected Worlds is a fully immersive, digitally rendered interactive experience where visitors are encouraged to explore the interconnectedness of different environments, learn about the importance of keeping systems in balance, and see how our individual and collective actions can have widespread impact. Through their gestures and movements, visitors interact with animated creatures, plants, trees and other objects, and see how human decisions affect the environment. "Connected Worlds reflects what NYSCI is all about – a playful hands-on activity, a focus on problem-solving, and deep engagement with a topic. Connected Worlds gives visitors confidence in their ability to effect change, and empowers them within a larger environment," said Margaret Honey, president and CEO of NYSCI. "This leads to passionate learners – a hallmark of the NYSCI experience." Connected Worlds features gesture-based technologies that generate and project images onto seven massive screens. Six of the screens are more than 14 feet tall and one screen, which shows a digital waterfall, is 38 feet tall. The screens show six different, but interconnected, environments – desert, mountain valley, plains, reservoir, jungle and wetlands – each with their own unique trees, plants and creatures, but sharing common resources, such as water and weather patterns. Some of the animals travel across environments for breeding or to access food. A central reservoir, which is fed by the waterfall and supplies water to the six environments, is projected on the floor, covering approximately 2,300 square feet.

Picasso's Le Tricorne - New-York Historical Society
Through December 31, 2020 - Upper West Side

Now on display at the New-York Historical Society is a newly acquired and conserved Picasso in the exhibition Picasso's "Le Tricorne." It is the first work by Picasso, and one with great wall power and a New York history, to enter New-York Historical's collection. Pablo Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos or Le tricorne). The ballet and curtain were commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde, Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John Richardson once called "Le Tricorne" the artist's "supreme theatrical achievement." The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set for the ballet. Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depicts a scene with a bullring and celebratory spectators. Picasso painted it as an illusionistic window in a larger curtain that functioned as a backdrop setting the scene for the ballet. At some point before 1956 Diaghilev cut it from its larger context. For more than half a century the curtain, believed to be the largest Picasso painting in the United States, has hung in the hallway of the Four Seasons Restaurant, in the landmarked Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, on Park Avenue and Fifty-second Street in New York City. Vivendi, the company that once owned the Seagram Building, gave the Picasso curtain to the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2005 as a "Gift to the City." The show positions Picasso's curtain in a dialogue with other N-YHS objects, including paintings from the European tradition that provide background to the artist's work as well as to the traditions against which the revolutionary artist rebelled. Other thematic threads pivot around dance subjects and explore roughly contemporary American paintings, sculpture, posters, and watercolors. Among the works included will be examples by William Adolphe Bouguereau, Will H. Bradley, Philippe de Champaigne, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Childe Hassam, Malvina Hoffman, Ricardo de Madrazo y Garreta, Elie Nadelman, Edward Penfield, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and Adriaen van Utrecht.

Dear Evan Hansen - Music Box Theatre
Through December 31, 2020 -

DEAR EVAN HANSEN MUSICAL PRODUCTION REVIEW Dear Evan Hansen has surpassed Josh Groban as Broadway’s biggest new hit. With $1.1 million in its pockets, this musical is creating a huge buzz that is drawing ardent fans across the board. Its average ticket price of $141 remains one of the highest box office rates in its niche. This amazing hit was originally in book form and the creativity of Steven Levenson led to its seamless transition to a wave-making high school musical. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the musicals for Dear Evan Hansen. It is on track to be one of the most successful pieces of musical theater ever to originate in Washington. The plot is centered on the peculiar problem of communicating in a time where technology has made it easier to reach out to people. Evan Hansen is a friendless high school student who achieves Internet fame due to a misunderstanding he perpetuates in regards to his supposed closeness to another troubled classmate who committed suicide. The twists in the story line help to accentuate the challenges that the younger generation face in today’s world. The gripping effects of the story and the raw show of emotions make this story one of the most amazing productions to ever grace Broadway. Parents can gain more insight and understanding into their children. Children can watch and learn how challenging it is for their parents to understand them at times. Grandparents, well, they will get to view this communications conundrum from all angles and certainly gain a good chuckle along the way. This record-setting, sold-out musical has been attracting positive reviews from leading names in the industry and beyond. Peter Marks of the Washington post calls it ‘’A heart-piercing trip to the place that musical theater can sometimes take us to.’’ He believes that this musical, which was first performed on November 14, 2016, holds the ace in every range. On the other hand, Charles Isherwood of the New York Times proclaims “This is a superb musical with great heart and humor.’’ When you leave a musical with one or two great songs running through your head, it can be said to be a success. However, leaving a musical with about 10 great songs running through your head is pretty much unheard of. The power of Dear Evan Hansen has set a new height that may not be surpassed by any production for many years. This is a performance that anyone serious about the arts absolutely must see and a performance certain to draw in permanently that first time attendee to a Broadway performance.
