Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 11 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Start times: 10:30am, 12pm, 1:30pm

Workshop | Poetry Workshop


Whether you are a student of poetry or just jumping into the world of poetry for the first time, poet Judy Katz will lead this workshop to explore the world through reading and writing poetry. Participants will look at one or two poems (20th century and contemporary), making observations about their craft, subject matter and music. Katz will also use the poems as jumping off points for participants’ own writing. The writing that you do will be strictly for you and does not have to be shared with the group unless you are so inclined. Whether you are a longtime reader and writer of poetry, or a complete beginner, you are welcome in this workshop. (First of four sessions).

Discussion | The Passionate Photographer Critique (online)


It feels good to hear nice things about your photos from friends, relatives and fellow photographers, but pats on the back are far less useful than meaningful, constructive criticism. Putting our photography out into the world—seeking opinions and critique we can use to improve and push ourselves forward is essential to our development as photographers. In this session, Steve Simon, "The Passionate Photographer," will give an honest evaluation of the photographs submitted—talking about what works, what doesn’t and how photographs can be improved. You will learn as much from the critiques of other photographer’s images as you will about critiques of your own images.

Book Discussion | Art in the After-Culture: Capitalist Crisis and Cultural Strategy


Art critic Ben Davis discusses his new incisive collection on the meaning of art in the face of today's climate and capitalist catastrophes It is a scary and disorienting time for art, as it is a scary and disorienting time in general. Aesthetic experience is both overshadowed by the spectacle of current events and pressed into new connection with them. The self-image of art as a social good is collapsing under the weight of capitalism’s dysfunction. Davis attempts to make sense of our extreme present as an emerging "after-culture"—a culture whose forms and functions are being radically reshaped by cataclysmic events. In the face of catastrophe, he holds out hope that reckoning with the new realities of art, technology, activism, and the media, can help us weather the super-storms of the future.

Performance | One-Act Play Festival


Life, it seems, often feels like a series of one-acts. We all have experiences that play out like short dramas. And that is, perhaps, why the one-act dramatic form is so popular. For the fourth annual One-Act Play Festival, a series of short, compelling, meaningful works that reveal heightened interactions among people--not only for the characters involved in the story, but also for all of us out there in the audience. A good one-act play tells a story as appropriate to the stage as it is to real life, our lives. Why do we fall in love with people not available to us? How can strangers help us live better lives? What effect do chance encounters have on us? Come take a seat to see stories unfold in ways that matter to us all.

Staged Reading | Animal Magnetism: 18th-Century Farce on Men Controlling Women's Bodies (online thru Jan. 29)


Elizabeth Inchbald’s 18th-century farce is a brilliant riff on the art of performance and a hilarious and all too relevant takedown of some men’s insistence that they own and control women’s bodies. The Doctor - a quack - keeps his beautiful young ward, Constance, under lock and key, and is determined to force her into marrying him. But Constance is determined to get free and the Marquis, who loves her, offers an escape route. When Le Fleur, the Marquis's servant, arrives at the house under the guise of an expert in mesmerism, the scene is set for the Doctor to get his comeuppance. Presented by the Red Bull Theater.
