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 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Workshop | we free lab: Looking at Relationships Through Movement and Sound and Media


What is a reparative performance practice that un-oppresses and un-does, or simply looks anew, at relationships that are in need of examining,--i.e. audience-performer; institution-artist; whiteness-everything else? How can the improvisatory practices inside of dance and music, especially of the African Diaspora, point to one way of reparations, or repairing, or healing the ways we relate with one another? Audience members will be asked to join the circle and participate in guided and unguided improv exercises with sound and movement facilitators. Marguerite Hemmings is the guide for the evening.
