Museums | Historic 1885 Ship, Indoor Galleries and Outdoor Exhibition


Located in the heart of the historic Manhattan district, the museum preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Founded in 1967, it includes an extensive collection of works of art and artifacts, a maritime reference library, galleries, working 19th-century print shop, and a fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of "Where New York Begins." Wavertree is a historic iron-hulled sailing ship built in 1885, now the largest wrought iron sailing vessel afloat. Guests will visit the open-air portions of the ship. Access to the main deck and quarter deck. Learn how people worked and lived aboard a 19th century cargo sailing vessel, from the captain to the ship's officers, cooks, and crew. Then visit the cargo hold and stand atop the viewing platform and enjoy the view as you look out across New York Harbor and the Brooklyn Bridge. In addition, view an outdoor exhibition on the Pier. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 11am to 5pm.

Museums | Jewish History: Centuries of Art


One of the largest collections of art and Jewish culture in the world, it focuses both on artifacts of Jewish history and on modern and contemporary art. Works in the collection are presented as distinctive creative expressions and as bearers of the stories of those who made, owned, used, preserved, and sometimes transformed them. The exhibition speaks of the vast range of Jewish experiences across the globe and over time, made tangible through artistic expression. It is both a mirror of Jewish identities and an inspiration for the formation of new ones.

Staged Reading | The Half-Life of Marie Curie: The Power of Female Friendship


In 1911, Marie Curie won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for her discovery of the elements radium and polonium. By 1912, she was the object of ruthless gossip over an alleged affair with the married Frenchman Paul Langevin, all but erasing her achievements from public memory. Weakened and demoralized by the press lambasting her as a "foreign" Jewish temptress and a home-wrecking traitor, Marie agrees to join her friend and colleague Hertha Ayrton, an electromechanical engineer and suffragette. The play revels in the power of female friendship as it explores the relationship between these two brilliant women, both of whom are mothers, widows, and fearless champions of scientific inquiry.

Play | Lear, Part I: Outdoor Shakespeare Adapted to the Old West


California, 1879. The Frontier lies open with the promise of power, wealth, and glory... for some. For others there is only defeat and ruin. Written in the midst of a deadly plague, Lear is a tragedy about family, loyalty, and the choices people make to break free from their restraints. No ghosts, no angry gods, no magic, and no witches. Only the unforgiving skies, the cruelty of the ordinary world, and the human heart's capacity for love and hate, darkness and light. Presented in two parts.

Opening Reception | Linda Simpson: My Comrade Magazine: Happy 35th Gay Anniversary


A special exhibition of photographs from Linda Simpson’s groundbreaking magazine, My Comrade. Included are never-before-seen images and artifacts documenting a revolutionary and seminal period in gay history. In conjunction with the exhibit, a brand-new issue of My Comrade will be published, the first in 16 years. My Comrade magazine was founded by drag queen Linda Simpson in 1987 during the dark era of the AIDS crisis and served as a symbol of hope and frivolity to the East Village gay scene and beyond. Armed with a tongue-in-cheek “revolutionary” agenda, the magazine glorified heroic drag queens and sexy guys in a cut-and-paste mishmash of articles and photo spreads. Lesbians got their due when the flip side became Sister! The sporadic publishing schedule produced a total of eleven issues until 1994. It was revived in 2004 for two more.

Dance Performance | Contemporary Dance: Ariel Rivka Dance and The Missing Element


Ariel Rivka Dance is an all-female contemporary dance company led by Artistic Director Ariel Grossman. ARD's mission is to champion female creatives through original choreography, commissioned music, and curated family and educational programming. Through movement, ARD creates a community of vulnerability and acceptance, providing opportunities for hope and connection. Fusing the music making of beatbox with street dance, The Missing Element was commissioned by Works & Process to marry the cypher, widely found in rap, beatbox, and break dance, with the circular architecture of the Guggenheim. Through a pandemic induced detour, a new collaboration took inspiration from the heart of Lincoln Center, the Revson Fountain. During their Works & Process bubble residency The Missing Element collaborators made up of members of The Beatbox House including Amit Bhowmick, Chris Celiz, Neil Meadows (NaPoM), Gene Shinozaki, and Kenny Urban, and dancers including flexer Joseph Carella (Klassic), Krumper Brian (Hallow Dreamz) Henry, and breakers Graham Reese and Anthony Rodriguez (Invertebrate) created a site-specific work, embodying wind, fire, water and earth to push the boundaries of creativity to inspire the spirit and recovery of New York.
