New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick. Tour takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all. Tours are Mondays and Fridays at 2pm, and Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10am.

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place every Tuesday at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm until Feb. 14, 2017.

Much of the investment literature and information out there is focused on the first two phases of the investment process. a) Should I invest in the stock/bond markets at all, and if so how much? And b) what should I invest in?  What tends to be ignored however is the question of how do you maintain and look after your portfolio once the initial investments are made?Tending to your portfolio involves six main activities:Resistance to making behavioral mistakesDollar cost averagingAsset locationRebalancingSmart dividend reinvestmentTax loss harvestingSimon Brady discusses all six of these concepts, why they are critical,  and the kind of difference they can make to the end balance of a portfolio.

A cover letter serves many purposes in a successful job search but none more important than giving a potential employer a true sense of how you could match with and fit into their organization. While you can send one resume to several employers, you need to create an individual cover letter specific to the exact opportunity. If this thought strikes fear in you, relax! Creating a targeted letter is far easier than you imagine.Jacqueline Ross explores: •        The three-paragraph template •        Writing a second paragraph compelling to the hiring personnel •        Who gets the letter and why •        Do’s and Don’ts.

The exhibition will present a selection of iconic earlier works from the sixties and seventies to the present, and will premiere to the US two major film installations that have occupied the artist during recent years.Since his first exhibition in 1970, Coleman’s pioneering practice has redefined our understanding and expectations of time-based work and has had an immeasurable influence on subsequent generations of artists. Coleman’s critique of the photographic image through meticulously composed slide, film and video projections engages the viewers understanding of how an image accrues meaning and the viewers’ role in defining the experience of the photographic image. While Coleman assigns a subtle conceptual and temporal aspect to the experience of the image, his works are characterized by a sensual beauty and elegance that results from his embrace of the photographic image's inherent uncertainties and potential.

Featuring work by:Annie DunningAganetha DyckWilliam EakinNina KatchadourianAlison Reiko Loader and Christopher Plenzich A humanist truism states that there is no art in the non-human world. And yet, there is much that is not human in art. Indeed, art history often begins with depictions of animals (usually the iconic horses of Lascaux Caves), as well as objects made from their bodies, such as etched shells, or carved bones and teeth. While assuming that such images and artifacts inaugurate an uninterrupted aesthetic evolution spanning human existence is questionable, it is nonetheless tempting to see in them one of art’s formative paradoxes: borne of our closeness with animals, it also marks our movement away from them.Although contemporary art continues to be defined by human activities, the notion of animal culture now serves as a point of departure for a range of artistic practices focused on multispecies aesthetics and interspecies communication. Animal Intent explores trends through the work of artists who partner with non-humans in the creation of unique aesthetic languages. Rather than merely representing animals, using them as surrogates, or politicizing their bodies as part of a broad social critique, these artists treat animal instinct as a form of stylistic invention in its own right. As such, their work questions the validity of anthropocentric theories of creative labor by emphasizing the aesthetic intention of animals. Animal Intent thus highlights the possibilities, limits, and ethics of collaborating with non-human others in the realization of artistic projects, while subtly questioning theories of the post-human and its contrary: the anthroposcene.

The proverb "least said, soonest mended" implies that a difficult situation will be resolved if there's no more mention of it. Carla Edwards' cut-up, dyed, and reassembled American flags question this adage, refusing to assume that injustices will right themselves if ignored. Carla Edwards states: "My current project examines how dominant culture and artifacts shape our sense of identity and self. Through appropriation, I make material interventions that alter or deconstruct an original subject to be manipulated and reconfigured in a way that has altered its meaning. This gesture, often ritualistic in nature, seeks to understand our complex relationship to symbols, and the often-humorous solace they inspire. I view this process of altering as a means of gaining current and tactile access to the symbols that surround me. Materiality and the notion of the hand or labor is important in my work. Cultural identity and the political reside in what is made. A gesture of solace, a covetous object, a thing made with spiritual devotion or a fervent patriotism are the things most seductive and inspiring."

Lukáš Machalický will present an artist talk about his work, the gallery he co-founded called Galerie SPZ and the catalog “Do you jump queues?” which he co-authored with Robert Šalanda. Machalický’s exhibitions have a formal and architectural purity that seems to preclude any spontaneity or element of chance - but in fact deviations, volatility, ambiguity and system failure play a key role in this artist’s current work.

With: Andrew MellenAndrew Mellen, “the Most Organized Man in America,” says clutter “ is nothing more than deferred decisions.” Come reflect on what are the unconscious stories that keep you stuck, and decide how to break free at every level. Andrew will take you through a series of exercises using your to-do lists, calendars and other organizing systems, and give you easy, sustainable tools to bring clarity and focus to what seems unmanageable. He’ll introduce you to the Organizational Triangle®, three simple, powerful rules for organizing, and help you craft a plan to tackle a “hot spot”: any area of your life where you feel overwhelmed or “stuff challenged,” and finally set yourself free from clutter and disorganization for good. Get a fresh start for the New Year.

Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick. Tour takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
