Museums | Dutch Masterpieces: Paintings by Rembrandt, Hals, and Vermeer


Dutch paintings of the 17th century: the Golden Age of Rembrandt, Hals, and Vermeer. Through sixty-seven works of art organized thematically, In Praise of Painting orients visitors to key issues in 17th century Dutch culture--from debates about religion and conspicuous consumption to painters' fascination with the domestic lives of women. The presentation also provides the opportunity to conserve and display rarely exhibited paintings, including Margareta Haverman's A Vase of Flowers--one of only two known paintings by the artist. The exhibition takes its title from one of the period's major works of art theory, Philips Angel's The Praise of Painting (1642), a pioneering defense of realism in art.

Park Walk | Foraging Tour: Wild Peaches, Apples, Cherries, Herbs and More


Thanks to its varied habitats and combination of native and introduced species, this world-famous park overflows with wild food.  Thickets will still be lined with sweet, juicy European cut-leaf blackberries. There is a peach tree growing near the lake, where someone had once tossed a peach pit. These sweet, juicy peaches are way better than commercial peaches, which have been bred for shelf life, not flavor. This is also the season for black cherries.  Cornelian cherries and heritage apples are very tasty and abundant. Wild greens also thrive in meadows and along trail edges. You'll find purslane, lamb's-quarters (a wild spinach), wood sorrel, sheep sorrel, poor man's pepper, lady's thumb, and Asiatic dayflower. There will be culinary and medicinal herbs such as epazote, wild bay leaves, field garlic, sassafras, and common spicebush leaves as well as gourmet wild mushrooms. The tour will last for about 4 hours.

Opera | Screening of Verdi's Otello: Opera Masterpiece In a Park


Shakespeare-based opera Otello was first performed at La Scala, Milan, in 1887. It proved to be a resounding success, and further stagings of the operao soon followed at leading theatres throughout Europe and America. The work has brought Verdi to the peak of his dramatic power and it remains a staple of the genre. Enjoy an HD recording of the 2015 Met production by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher. At the helm of this performance is maestro Yannick Nezet-Seguin, who brings out all the cascading emotions in Verdi's turbulent score. Tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko sings the title role of the triumphant general who is ultimately brought down by the sly insinuations of his friend Iago (baritone Zeljko Lucic). Soprano Sonya Yoncheva gives a heartrending performance as Desdemona, Otello's faithful and long-suffering wife. First-come, first-served, beginning 10 minutes before the show. Masks are required.
