One hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises. For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build. Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels.

Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. The term gained popularity during the graffiti art boom of the early 1980s and continues to be applied to subsequent incarnations. Stencil graffiti, wheat pasted poster art or sticker art, and street installation or sculpture are common forms of modern street art.

Few leaders will admit it, but again and again the growth of their organizations outruns their skills. If you're one of those leaders, you know the result: as the job grows bigger than you are, you get disoriented by a world of unfamiliar challenges. You then hit a wall of ineffectiveness, a stall point. What Happens Now?: Reinvent Yourself as a Leader Before Your Business Outruns You helps you to embrace this reality.

NOVUS NY, orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor; Jessica Muirhead, soprano. Program Wachner (b.1969) Gaudé: an LB Anniversary for Large Orchestra Copland (1900-1990) Connotations (1962) Mahler (1860-1911) Symphony No. 4 (1900) About the Performers NOVUS NY is Trinity Church Wall Street’s contemporary music orchestra, under the leadership of Trinity’s Director of Music, Julian Wachner. Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” its members perform new music from all corners of the repertoire, meeting “every challenge with an impressive combination of discipline and imagination” (New York Classical Review). Music director Julian Wachner has been variously described as “jazzy, energetic, and ingenious,” (Boston Globe), having “splendor, dignity, outstanding tone combinations, sophisticated chromatic exploration…a rich backdrop, wavering between a glimmer and a tingle...,” (La Scena Musicale) being “a compendium of surprises,” (Washington Post) and as “bold and atmospheric,” while having “an imaginative flair for allusive text setting,” and noted for “the silken complexities of his harmonies” (New York Times). He has made guest appearances with such major organizations as the San Francisco, New York City, and Glimmerglass Opera, the New York and Hong Kong Philharmonic and many more. Soprano Jessica Muirhead, described by the New York Times as a “multihued soprano with floating top notes”, has appeared with the Hamburger Symphoniker, the Washington Chorus at the Kennedy Center, the Bayerischer Rundfunkorchester, the OFUNAM Symphonic Orchestra in Mexico City, the Flanders Symphony and l’Orchestre Chambre de Genève, among others. About the Program Aaron Copland's Connotations commissioned by Leonard Bernstein in 1962 to commemorate the opening of Philharmonic Hall (now David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts) marks a departure from Copland's populist period, which began with El Salón México in 1936 and includes the works he is most famous for such as Appalachian Spring, Lincoln Portrait and Rodeo. Symphony No. 4 in G major by Gustav Mahler was written in 1899 and 1900, though it incorporates a song originally written in 1892. The song, "Das himmlische Leben", presents a child's vision of Heaven.

Erin M. Riley’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Riley is a fiber artist who makes large-scale tapestries using a centuries-old hand weaving process. For her work, Riley sources yarn from shuttered textile mills around the United States; she then washes, strips and hand-dyes the wool before weaving on a Macomber loom. The exhibition will feature her meticulously crafted tapestries depicting intimate scenes that reflect on relationships, memories, fantasies, sexual violence and trauma. Riley was born on Cape Cod, Massachusetts (1985) and lives and works in Brooklyn. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions throughout the U.S., the United Kingdom, and Australia, including New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, among many others. Riley has lectured extensively throughout the country and has had residencies at The MacDowell Colony, NH and the Museum of Art and Design, NY.

Lesson |


The self is one of the central issues in Indian philosophy. It is commonly believed that an accurate understanding of the true nature of the self is the ticket to liberation. According to Buddhists, on the other hand, liberation requires learning that there is in fact no self at all. Over the centuries, philosophers from various religious traditions in India hashed out these and other issues in public debates and polemical texts. In this course you will follow a single thread of debate, covering nearly six centuries, between Buddhism and a brahmanical tradition called Nyāya.    Upcoming classes: Thursday, June 7, 2018, 6 p.m: Basics of Buddhist no-self theory  Thursday, June 14, 2018, 6 p.m: Basics of Nyāya self theory Thursday, June 21, 2018, 6 p.m: The analogy of the dancer's brow   Thursday, June 28, 2018, 6 p.m: Interpreting/debating the primary texts

This class is a social history of food and families in Postwar America, focusing on the personal, lived-experiences of people. Topic of the day: School Lunch; Institutional Food for Children. Over the course of roughly 30 years (1945 – 1965), the U.S. population grew by over 50 million and the very definition of what it meant to be an American family changed in ways large and small. We will focus on the role of different food products and experiences in everyday life, including: the introduction of convenience foods into home kitchens; gendered and racialized approaches to advertising food products; a burgeoning restaurant landscape including McDonald’s and Howard Johnsons; and newly organized school lunch programs.

The exhibition explores Mucha´s contribution to the nation´s struggle for national identity and self-determination. A large-screen projection of his life´s work, The Slav Epic, forms a spectacular and moving backdrop and context for the display of the first postage stamps and banknotes Mucha created for the newly independent Czechoslovak state. The exhibition also includes a range of works in which Mucha addresses Czech identity through lithographs, drawings, photographs, and writings on display in Czech Center New York. Through his work, Alfons Mucha, a passionate patriot and keen political thinker, contributed greatly to creating the image of the First Republic and regarded his art as a means to serve his homeland. His life story and work is, however, also inherently associated with the United States of America and the patron Charles Richard Crane. Without the support of Charles Richard Crane, an American businessman and philanthropist, the work would probably never have come to life.

The movie can be classified as a surrealist[ or absurdist satire, and it is based loosely on the third book of Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift, but the story is transferred to an early 20th-century world in decay.
