In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Opening Reception |


Through her art practice, internationally celebrated Dublin artist Bernie Leahy picks apart visceral human connections, finding and laying bare the vulnerability in each chosen subject matter. In this exhibition, Leahy has created an evocative series of stitched drawings and small sculptures, embodied with a variety of media including gold leaf, uncut diamonds and acrylic on linen and canvas. Fragments of the human form—eyes, mouths, glances—capture Leahy’s personal moments and stories and imbues them with a sense of passion and energy.

Uncover. Arrange. Displace. To make something appear. There is a fundamental connection between the works of Samuel Henne and the early archaeological excavations depicted in the photographic documents from the early 20th century which he took up for his exhibition. Featuring a talk with the artist. Samuel Henne addresses material and visual forms of staging objects, as well as central aspects of the presentation and presentability of sculpture. In his works, the artist engages with different ways of displaying and showcasing in a museum, as well as the archiving and visual documentation of sculpture and objects. Motifs arranged and constructed in the studio are translated—with the use of setting, light, and color—into concise, independent pictorial compositions.

Discussion |


While the term “neorealism” is primarily associated with cinema and literature, photography was also involved in the wider turn toward social and humanist themes in Italy in the 1940s and ’50s. Photography documented the war’s impact and the conditions of ordinary Italians in the postwar years—and made these visible through touring exhibitions, illustrated magazines, and photobooks. Speakers will examine the new types of photographic images that emerged in those years, consider the relations between photography and cinema, and assess the validity of the concept of neorealism in photography. Featuring: Maria Antonella Pelizzari, CUNY Enrica Viganò, Admira, Milan, curator of NeoRealismo Moderated by Ara Merjian, NYU Followed by the opening reception for the exhibiton NeoRealismo: The New Image in Italy, 1932–1960.

Before Robert Moses and John D. Rockefeller ever broke ground on Lincoln Center, one of the twentieth century’s most important composers was already walking, humming to himself, on the sidewalks of the Upper West Side. Thelonious Monk, the composer of  "'Round Midnight", "Blue Monk", and "Straight, No Chaser", lived in an apartment near the corner of Amsterdam and 64th street.  Join for a Monk Centennial celebration, in the neighborhood that he called home.   The Library for the Performing Arts presents an evening of Monk listening and discussion, featuring two of today’s most visionary and original jazz voices, Helen Sung and Jason Moran.
