Lesson | Chinese Traditional Painting


Learn the techniques of Chinese Traditional Painting! Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. Painting in the traditional style is known today in Chinese as guóhuà, meaning "national" or "native painting", as opposed to Western styles of art which became popular in China in the 20th century. Traditional painting involves essentially the same techniques as calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black ink or coloured pigments; oils are not used. As with calligraphy, the most popular materials on which paintings are made are paper and silk. The finished work can be mounted on scrolls, such as hanging scrolls or handscrolls. Traditional painting can also be done on album sheets, walls, lacquerware, folding screens, and other media. Please bring your own brushes; paper and ink will be provided.

Opening Reception | Queer as German Folk: Perspectives on Stonewall 5.0


On June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn. For the queer patrons, many of them people of color, this had already become routine harassment, but this was one time too many. The customers rioted and defended themselves, and the two days of uprising that followed catalyzed a movement for queer empancipation, both in the United States and abroad.   This story has often been told, mostly as a gay success story with the happy ending of civic recognition. But the struggle for queer liberation is ongoing, and many voices and stories remain unheard. Queer as German Folk is an exhibition that aims to honor 50 years of queer activism by offering perspectives from West Germany, East Germany, and reunified Germany in relation to the activist scene in the United States.

An empowering and fabulously graphic introduction to the history of the fight for queer liberation. Combining exhaustively researched narrative with meticulously curated photographs, the book traces queer activism from its roots in late-19th-century Europe, to the pivotal Stonewall Riots of 1969, to the gender warriors leading the charge today. With images from 70+ photographers, this inclusive book enables us to truly see queer history unlike anything before, with glimpses of activism in the decades before and after Stonewall, family life, marches, protests, celebrations, mourning, and Pride celebrations.With authors Matthew Riemer and Leighton Brown

Author Reading | CNN's Jim Acosta discusses his book The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America


From CNN's veteran Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, an explosive, first-hand account of the dangers he faces reporting on the current White House while fighting on the front lines in President Trump's war on truth. In Trump's campaign against what he calls "Fake News," CNN Chief White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta, is public enemy number one. From the moment Mr. Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, he has attacked the media, calling journalists "the enemy of the people." Acosta presents a revealing examination of bureaucratic dysfunction, deception, and the unprecedented threat the rhetoric Mr. Trump is directing has on our democracy. When the leader of the free world incites hate and violence, Acosta doesn't back down, and he urges his fellow citizens to do the same. Restrictions apply. Call store for details.
