Museums | Tiffany Glass and Other Exhibitions


The collection of Tiffany's leaded glass includes an extraordinary array of floral and geometric lamps as well as landscape and figural windows. A unique feature of the collection is a vast, one-of-a-kind archive of original flat glass and pressed-glass "jewels" used by Tiffany Studios, which provides valuable insight into the development of the stained-glass movement in America at the turn of the twentieth century. Established in 1972, this art museum's permanent collection consists of around 10,000 items, over 6,000 of which are documents and objects related to the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs, some of which are on long-term display.

Performance | Audience Participation Theater Experience


Guided by questions and prompts, audience members create a shared script together in A Thousand Ways, an entirely participatory theater experience. Obie Award-winning performance troupe 600 Highwaymen present A Thousand Ways (Part Three): An Assembly. The final experience of their triptych of encounters between strangers is an intimate reckoning -- of how small we are in the face of awesome natural forces, and of our mutual dependence. An Assembly tasks an audience of 16 strangers to reconstruct an evocative story of perseverance and ruin. This unique theatrical event tests the ways we arrange ourselves after so much time apart. This experience will be discovered and enacted by audience members in collaboration with each other. The instructions for the performance are written on notecards, and audience members read what is written on them. Written & Created by Abigail Browde & Michael Silverstone 600 Highwaymen (Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone), are "standard bearers of contemporary theater-making" (Le Monde), who have "quietly been shaking up American theatre since 2009" (The Guardian). They are recipients of Switzerland's ZKB Patronize Prize, and their work has been nominated for two Bessie Awards, a Drama League Award, and Austria's Nestroy Prize. In 2016, Abigail and Michael were named artist fellows by the New York Foundation for the Arts and are currently Associate Artists of IN SITU, the European platform for artistic creation in public space.

Book Discussion | De-Integrate!: A Jewish Survival Guide for the 21st Century


Author Max Czollek and Rebecca Guber for a conversation about his new book. This polemical, often humorous examination of Jewish life in contemporary Germany speaks to the position of minorities the world over. Rooted in sociological theory, the book offers an engaging and approachable critique of Germany’s much-lauded traditions of memory culture and Vergangenheitsbewältigung—its “successful” negotiation of its Nazi past.
