From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.Every Saturday.

Inwood Hill Park is a living piece of old New York. Join the Urban Park Rangers and discover the wonderful history behind Inwood Hill Park.Inwood Hill Park contains the last natural forest and salt marsh in Manhattan. It is unclear how the park received its present name. Before becoming parkland in 1916, it was known during the Colonial and post-Revolutionary War period as Cock or Cox Hill. The name could be a variant of the Native American name for the area, Shorakapok, meaning either “the wading place,” “the edge of the river,” or “the place between the ridges."                  Payson Center in Inwood Hill Park  Payson Avenue and Dyckman StreetManhattanDirections to this location  CostFree  Event OrganizerUrban Park RangersContact Number(212) 628-2345Categories

En Masse is made by an animator (Alison Reiko Loader), an entomologist (Christopher Plenzich), and hundreds of forest tent caterpillars. Though initially inspired by Brakhage’s Mothlight and other animations that feature dead insects, they explored the potential of living caterpillars as innately creative and social bodies. For En Masse, insects and humans made charcoal drawings and performed geometric dances captured on videos that they projected onto five-foot screens made of one hundred cocoons. Alongside demonstrating their screen-making process, Loader will present and discuss artwork and documentation from their 2015 exhibition, which they and several families of experimental research caterpillars inhabited throughout its six-week duration.

Sheila Elias is a contemporary artist successful for her multi-media paintings, sculptures and iPad paintings. What makes her art so unique and refreshing is the optimism she paints with as recognized by fans of her art and critic Peter Frank.“My work is about the layers of life and art history, seeking in it a connection between art, aesthetics, and social consciousness. I like to portray a perception of urban tension, raw emotions and harsh realities tempered with gentle optimism and beauty, countering an American dream that has gone a bit astray.” -Sheila Elias
