Time to learn about the other New York City; the city that nurtured political, cultural and intellectual revolutions. The city that gave birth to punk rock, the beat poets and graffiti. The city that has survived two centuries of mass riots, crime and corruption, murder and mayhem. The city that has flourished in spite of economic and social hardship.

Workshop |
Have you always wanted to try drawing outdoors but felt intimidated? This workshop gets you ready to work outdoors to draw the park. It will start from basic understanding of drawing materials, techniques and composition. Then students are off to work on their own subject matter. By drawing within a limited time frame, students’ decision-making becomes faster and they use essential elements, composition, simplifying light and shadow shapes to complete the drawing. Instructor Yuka Imata earned her B.F.A. at Massachusetts College of Art and Design followed by Art Students League of New York winning the Xavier Gonzales and Ethel Edwards Grant to study in Spain. She has received awards from the Salmagundi and Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Clubs and was featured in American Artist and Plein Air Magazines.

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.

Workshop |
This workshop is most appropriate for adults who have had several different employers and at least 15 years of work experience. These days, workers are apt to change jobs frequently and many are taking the leap of switching careers or industries. Turn what could be a daunting ordeal into an invigorating inner journey of self-reflection.   Whether you're feeling clueless about what you want, or are focused on getting a toehold in a particular industry or career, it's unrealistic to try to totally "reinvent" yourself. For those of us with years of successful work experience, a more practical approach is to "reintegrate" by drawing on our accumulated knowledge, and highlighting the valuable transferable skills we bring to the table.    This workshop will take you on a scenic journey of your own work history.  You'll assess your interests, values, and skills from your past jobs which, in turn, will increase your self-knowledge  -- the important  first step to a career change. By looking backward, you'll move forward more thoughtfully and uncover new insights for a rewarding new career direction.   Presented by Sherry Natkow.

Immerse yourself in the interactive fabric of WaxFactory’s dreamlike, video-enhanced riff on Anton Chekhov's The Seagull. Presented at venues across New York as a string of hashtag-marked vignettes, Pull Yourself Together! is a 21st-century exploration of the deepest, murkiest id of Chekhov’s play about a particularly nasty bunch of people drowning in the quicksand of unrequited love. Filtered through present-day optics of media-saturated, self-centered, attention-span-deprived contemporary culture, even audiences unfamiliar with the Chekhovian characters will recognize their archetypal traits. Those who know The Seagull by heart will enjoy experiencing the timeless original from a wholly new vantage point. Tonight’s performance is part of a multiyear development process begun in 2014 that will culminate in a complete, evening-length theatrical production. Conceived and directed by Ivan Talijancic Performed by Erika Latta, Gillian Chadsey, Melody Bates, Kestrel Leah, Ryan Gingery, et al. Lighting: Solomon Weisbard Sound: Yiannis Christofides Video: Antonio Giacomin
