Museums | Jewish History: Centuries of Art


One of the largest collections of art and Jewish culture in the world, it focuses both on artifacts of Jewish history and on modern and contemporary art. Works in the collection are presented as distinctive creative expressions and as bearers of the stories of those who made, owned, used, preserved, and sometimes transformed them. The exhibition speaks of the vast range of Jewish experiences across the globe and over time, made tangible through artistic expression. It is both a mirror of Jewish identities and an inspiration for the formation of new ones. Covid protocol applies.

Opening Reception | Cristina Salas: Cosmic Gardens 


An exhibition by artist Cristina Salas presenting paintings on paper inspired by the world of animals. The works are presented in a mural-like series that tell stories of imagined gardens. There are seeds like a womb and a planet, with tiny and big insects hanging from leaves and flowers where life blooms and circles. The fantastical nature of this exhibition explores our cosmic connection to the universe. The series of drawings will continue like an infinite vine through the walls, columns and floors of the gallery space in a transformational installation that will change each week. During open hours the artist will be creating drawings to share her art process with visitors. Cristina Salas was born in Quito, Ecuador and has lived in many different countries such as Italy, France, Spain and Mexico. She moved to the United States in 2016 to pursue her master degree in architecture from Louisiana State University. After finishing her master degree she came to New York to work for Dameron Architecture where she collaborated in creating mosaic art installations like The Journey of the Star Nosed Mole in Carroll Hall, an event space in Brooklyn. She has also made many mosaic art installations in Quito, Ecuador for breweries and private residences. Her hiking trips and scientific readings inspire her to create intuitive art installations about fantastical stories of nature.

Opening Reception | Bobby Grossman: Low Fidelity


A selection of photographs by Bobby Grossman that documents and sheds new light on icons of New York's punk-rock scene and the culture that bred other trailblazing artists and musicians of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. HA/HA is located at 250 Bowery. Grossman arrived in New York in 1976 after receiving a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, where he studied alongside friends Chris Frantz and David Byrne of Talking Heads. His first job was assisting Richard Bernstein, the artist responsible for the covers of Andy Warhol's Interview magazine. At Bernstein's studio in the legendary Chelsea Hotel, Grossman found himself at ground zero in the early days of punk and the downtown scene. Taking photographs of friends and newfound acquaintances--including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Debbie Harry, the Ramones, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and the milieu around Andy Warhol's Factory--Grossman became a regular fixture at CBGB, the Mudd Club, and other downtown haunts.

Play | Larry and Lucy: Drama Reminiscent of Midnight Cowboy, Whitnail and I


Reminiscent in tone of classic films like "Midnight Cowboy" and "Whitnail & I," Larry & Lucy is about two emotionally wounded outsiders struggling to find a sense of place in the world. The play touches on the themes of loneliness, togetherness and the continuing opiate crisis in America. Larry is a worn-out, 63-year-old street muralist who now barely supports his meager, one room Hollywood existence by driving for Uber. Lucy is a fragile Kansas City teen runaway looking to beat a heroin addiction. After a few chance meetings the two embark on a series of misadventures that help them gain insight into their troubled lives, yet also reminds them of the difficulties they'll face when trying to overcome their deep rooted afflictions.
