Many people think of the New York City subway as one of the largest, most efficient, if not the cleanest mass transit systems in the world. Few, however, think of it as the largest and longest art gallery on the planet. Well, they don't know what they are missing. This lively walking AND subway riding tour visits over a dozen subway stations to experience a selection of these striking often whimsical works that go largely unnoticed by the general public. Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system. There's also the invaluable opportunity to confer about your other sightseeing plans with the acclaimed Bronx born, vastly experienced licensed NYC tour guide, Darryl Reilly. Tour takes place every Thursday.

Lecture |
Historical parallels abound in Sana Krasikov’s new novel, The Patriots, about three generations of an American family who emigrate in reverse from the US to Russia. Reviewers have called the book alarmingly relevant to our political moment. Krasikov will talk about her efforts to decode the vernacular of autocracy, and how writing the story of Americans lost in Russia felt uncomfortably close to home. Sana Krasikov was born in Ukraine and grew up in Georgia and the United States. Her story collection One More Year won a "5 Under 35" award from the National Book Foundation, and the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature. It was a finalist for the 2009 PEN/Hemingway Award and for the NYPL Young Lions Fiction Prize. Her latest novel, The Patriots, explores the effects of the Cold War on three generations of one American family, from the 1930s to the present.

Four time Grammy Award winner Glen Velez is the founding father of the modern frame drum movement and is regarded as a legendary figure among musicians and audiences world-wide. Velez brought a new genre of drumming to the contemporary music scene by creating his own performance style inspired by years of percussion and frame drumming studies from various cultures. Velez’s virtuosic combinations of hand movements, finger techniques, along with his original compositional style, which incorporates stepping, drum language and Central Asian Overtone singing (split-tone singing), has undoubtedly opened new possibilities for musicians around the globe, resulting in a shift in modern percussion. For rhythm vocalist Loire Cotler, life has always been about the natural rhythm of the universe which has propelled her into a life, like her music, that is defined by pure cadence and pulse. Loire has now done no less than create an entirely new genre using the intimate power of her voice as a rhythm instrument. She calls upon a distant past of sacred ritual and echo vocal traditions (the Jewish nigunim, Middle Eastern taksim and Konnakol Indian drum language).
