You will be writing a few times during the class, and if you prefer to sketch or want to do both, that is fine. Wear comfortable clothing, and feel free to bring a warm or cool drink to keep you hydrated (with a secure lid). All levels are welcome. If you have never done yoga you will be able to participate as well.

Artist Erwin Wurm has transformed a vintage Volkswagen Microbus into an overstuffed food truck serving free dogs! It's an absurd, yet approachable art experience that will encourage visitors to rethink the fundamental definitions of sculpture. Wurm's choice of the hot dog hints at the gastronomic connections between the City’s most iconic street food and his Austrian homeland, while he considers the act of eating to be an additive sculptural process in its own right.

No experience is necessary though rowing does require some physical dexterity. Community Rowing events are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats built on site. The rows last, depending on river conditions and crew experience, between one and three hours. Please arrive on-time as the crews will be assigned before 1PM. Bring extra water, a hat, and sunscreen as you will be rowing outdoors in the hot sun. Rowing is weather dependent and will be canceled for high winds, rain, or thunderstorms. All participants must sign a waiver and be able to climb a ladder. Every Sunday from June 10-October 21, 2018.

Author Reading |


Author Paul Kaplan will discuss how this relentless advocate for the welfare of children, called "one of the least-known yet most important people" by President Franklin Roosevelt, became responsible for many of the social and health-related programs we take for granted today. A campaigner for school lunches and nurses in public schools and an early promoter of women's suffrage, Wald was adept at navigating both the poorest neighborhoods and the upper circles of society, where she sought donors to support her efforts.

Most people have no idea that, the first American movie star was Blanche Walsh, a great forgotten actress of the past who like many accomplished women in the arts and in other fields has been banished to the margins of historical memory. Until now.  In 1912 Walsh starred in the now lost silent film Resurrection, based on Tolstoy’s bestselling third novel. Contrary to popular opinion, Birth of a Nation was not the first American feature film. It was Adolph Zukor’s Resurrection, a rich, complex story about love and social justice that’s as relevant today as it was a century ago.  This is also a deeply personal story for today’s speaker, educator and talk show host John Bredin, who has a fascinating biographical link to Blanche Walsh which he’ll reveal during the talk. Bredin hopes to encourage a new “Hollywood for the greater good” moving forward. In a Q & A after the lecture, he invites the audience to help him ponder this intriguing possibility.

The celebrated Mexican-American rock band Los Lobos have been seamlessly "moving back and forth between their Chicano roots and their love of American rock & roll," (Billboard) since their Los Angeles origins decades ago. The breakthrough moment came in 1987 when their cover of Ritchie Valens' "La Bamba" reached No. 1 on the U.S. charts, making it the first song in Spanish to do so. In the aftermath of the hit, they toured the world opening for the likes of Bob Dylan, U2, and the Grateful Dead.

Julia and Cassie have been friends since nursery school. They have shared everything, including their desire to escape the stifling limitations of their birthplace, the quiet town of Royston, Massachusetts. But as the two girls enter adolescence, their paths diverge and Cassie sets out on a journey that will put her life in danger and shatter her oldest friendship. The Burning Girl is a complex examination of the stories we tell ourselves about youth and friendship, and straddles, expertly, childhood’s imaginary worlds and painful adult reality―crafting a true, immediate portrait of female adolescence.

This book argues against compromise and negotiation with intolerance. It is a manifesto for everyone who is ready to continue progressing towards liberation.
