City Walk | Queer History Walk


A walking tour that explores the queer histories of the neighborhood surrounding the museum. This walk will bring visitors to select sites to reflect on the changing nature of queer community as it formed along the New York waterfront. Visit the former sites of bars, clubs, and public spaces and consider the intersection between artistic and sexual experimentation that occurred alongside the piers of the West Side. The walk will culminate with a look at Day's End (2021) by David Hammons, a new permanent public artwork that sketches the shape of the former Pier 52 building and references a work by the artist Gordon Matta-Clark from 1975. The layered history of Hammons's work serves as a model for how the queer history of the city remains a defining presence in the ever-changing landscape of the neighborhood.

Play | Saint Joan: George Bernard Shaw's Classic Drama Performed Outdoors


This timely play is based on historical records of the 1431 trial of French military icon and religious martyr Joan of Arc. The fully realized production is directed by Geoffrey Horne. Shaw's play fictionalizes the historical life of Joan of Arc who became a military leader and changed the history of her nation. Young, French farm girl Joan (Billie Andersson) hears saintly voices telling her to raise an army to fight the English. The failing English, threatened by her popularity and influence, convince the Church to have Joan tried for heresy and she is found guilty. When this force of nature refuses life in prison, she is tragically burned at the stake, becoming a symbol of faith, feminism, and individualism. Tickets are available at 5:45 p.m. the day of the performance.

Concert | Emerging Music Festival


Three up-and-coming bands on one of the biggest stages of their up-an-coming careers. Benét (Benét Nutall) is a singer-songwriter based in Richmond, VA. Raised in a musically inclined family, Benét‘s ear for melody is finely tuned. Beyond clear vocal talent, Benét’s vulnerable lyrics continue to pursue the audience long after the first play. From a young age, Benét was drawn to creative means of expression, immersing themselves in their local scene and dipping their toes in mediums across the board. Fast forward to 21-years-old, Benét is acutely aware of the ways their upbringing, both in Virginia and on the Internet have impacted their music. Social media has not only informed the way they create, but who they create with. Brooklyn's Dougie Poole puts his eccentric stamp on country music, melding eerie D.I.Y. bedroom pop textures with a love for classic honky tonk and lonesome, earthy songwriting. His self-released, home-recorded debut, Wideass Highway, earned him a contract with Wharf Cat Records, which issued his more expansive follow-up, The Freelancer's Blues, in 2020. Originally based in Providence, Rhode Island, Poole moved to Brooklyn and immersed himself in New York's indie underground, pairing his old-school country influences with synth pop and experimental music. Under her alias Daneshevskaya, Anna Beckerman writes tough-minded, tender-hearted songs about saying fond farewells. These aren’t necessarily breakup anthems. Some might be addressed to a lover, but most are about friends and acquaintances, those people whose lives intersect briefly with yours before they follow their own paths elsewhere. Bury Your Horses, her debut EP, locates meaning in these absences and finds hard-won contentment with dwindling memories left behind

Play | Richard III: Shakespeare Drama Outdoors


Tony Award nominee Robert O’Hara (Slave Play, The Public’s Barbecue) brings his sharp wit and storytelling genius with a bold new production of Richard III. One of Shakespeare’s most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King. Following his lust for power and the throne, he manipulates, kidnaps, and kills all who stand between him and his throne, using brilliant words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice. This masterful dive into the muddy middle between political genius and violent power grab arrives with piercing relevancy and electrifying drama.
