Museums | Dutch Masterpieces: Paintings by Rembrandt, Hals, and Vermeer (in-person)


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.

But he’ll be the first to tell you he’s not cooking for awards. He’s unwaveringly true to himself, half Argentine, half Italian. Giorgio spent half his life growing up in Italy’s Piedmont region. It was here that he learned about Slow Food, and how to compose a meal. He proudly carries his heritage and the Slow Food motto: “Good, Clean, and Fair.”  Join Giorgio Rapicavoli and Modern Adventure's Joanne Vargas for a conversation looking back at his journey as a chef, his early years growing up in Italy and at a revolving door of Italian family dinners back in Miami, and more.

Staged Reading | Beirut: Love and The Plague (virtual)


Set in a dingy Lower East Side apartment in the 1980s, Beirut follows the story of Torch (played by Oscar Isaac), a young man who is in quarantine after testing positive to a nameless disease. His girlfriend (Marisa Tomei, reprising her award-winning role from 1987), refuses to leave him isolating alone. It's raunchy, it's real, it's poetic; and it reminds us of the power of stories, and their role in fostering hope, solidarity and documentation of extraordinary times.
