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.

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.

We carry some characters from books around with us like they’re trusted friends. We feel as close to them as we would to flesh and blood human beings we’ve known, loved, or loathed. We have strong feelings about them, we trust or distrust them, they make us laugh and cry. They’re as living and breathing as the reader. What’s the secret to making characters come to life, inhabit life-like bodies and feel life-changing emotions? What’s the magic that goes into making the description of a person in words spring to three-dimensional life? Join award-winning guests from Europe, Szczepan Twardoch, Asle Skredderberget, and Tommy Wieringa, as well as New York Times bestseller Elizabeth Flock (pictured), as they describe how they breathe life into their unforgettable characters. Moderated by writer, translator, and co-founder of New Vessel Press, Ross Ufberg.

Abstract expressionism uses gesture and was an important development in abstract art (Action painting). Most of the artists began traditionally using grids and sketches, as they were taught. They went on to their individual development where the act and thought was important rather than the space that was there. The artists are considered mainly 2nd generation abstract expressionists. They were lucky to have the guidance of the stars of the first generation. Some of our artists went to the Art Students League and others took classes with the master artists. Many of them belonged to “the Club” and led to the organizing of the Ninth Street show in 1951 which unified the downtown artists and connected them to the public. The annual exhibits continued uptown at the Stable Gallery from 1951-1957.

Built exclusively around James Baldwin's words, I Am Not Your Negro delves into the complex legacy of three lives (and deaths) that permanently marked the American social and political landscape. Framing the unfinished work as a radical narration about race in America, Peck matches Baldwin's lyrical rhetoric with rich archival footage of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements, and connects these historical struggles for justice and equality to the present-day movements that have taken shape in response to the killings of young African-American men including Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Mike Brown, and Amir Brooks. 95 min.

We live in an age of near constant disruption. Innovations in various industries push the creative envelope and advance the social good by offering radically new ways of approaching accepted industry practices. But can such disruption happen within the "ivory tower"? Or does one need to look beyond the traditional campus to find new ways of reaching and best serving today's new and wider audiences? What can traditional education providers learn from non-accredited academic institutions to help reimagine the learning landscape? Join thinkers at the vanguard of discourse - and practice - of education’s rapidly shifting frontier. Panelists will explore innovations in learning modalities, discuss advances in education access, and share insights.

Two brown girls dream of being dancers—but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It’s a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either… Zadie Smith was born in Northwest London in 1975. She is the author of White Teeth, The Autograph Man, On Beauty, Changing My Mind, and NW.

Built exclusively around James Baldwin's words, I Am Not Your Negro delves into the complex legacy of three lives (and deaths) that permanently marked the American social and political landscape. Framing the unfinished work as a radical narration about race in America, Peck matches Baldwin's lyrical rhetoric with rich archival footage of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements, and connects these historical struggles for justice and equality to the present-day movements that have taken shape in response to the killings of young African-American men including Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Mike Brown, and Amir Brooks. 95 min. Shown December 9th - December 15th at 5:00pm and 7:30pm.

Classical Music |
Performed by the Barnard-Columbia Chorus, the B Minor Mass is the only complete setting of the Latin Ordinary of the Mass composed by Bach. The first two sections were composed in 1733, while the remainder of the text was set to music in 1745. It is thought that Bach was interested in a post in Dresden, where the court was Roman Catholic. The piece was never heard in its entirety during Bach's lifetime, but today it is recognized as one of the great masterpieces of Western European art music.
