Please arrive on-time as the crews will be assigned before 1PM. Bring extra water, a hat, and sunscreen as you will be rowing outdoors in the hot sun. Rowing is weather dependent and will be canceled for high winds, rain, or thunderstorms. All participants must sign a waiver and be able to climb a ladder. Every Sunday from June 10-October 21, 2018.

Artist Erwin Wurm has transformed a vintage Volkswagen Microbus into an overstuffed food truck serving free dogs! It's an absurd, yet approachable art experience that will encourage visitors to rethink the fundamental definitions of sculpture. Wurm's choice of the hot dog hints at the gastronomic connections between the City’s most iconic street food and his Austrian homeland, while he considers the act of eating to be an additive sculptural process in its own right.

From the artist, Cori Olinghouse: "Grandma is an evening-length performance where I conjure my late Grandma, Addie Lee Holder. Set in an American landscape of Twinkies and Wonder Bread, I excavate the effects of television, consumerism, and familial pasts as portals. Until the age of 94, Grandma delighted in her daily Twinkies and Mr. Pibb’s, acquired from the local Piggly Wiggly. She saved tourist sweatshirts wrapped neatly in plastic sheeting, collected crocheted Barbie clothes, refrigerator magnets, and a vast array of thimbles". Cori Olinghouse is an interdisciplinary artist, archivist, and curator. Her work has been commissioned by Danspace Project, New York Live Arts, BRIC Arts Media, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Movement Research, and Brooklyn Museum of Art. Recently, she was the recipient of The Award (2015-2016), and a participant in Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Extended Life Dance Development program made possible in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (2016-2017).

silent :: partner explores the ideas of collective memory and its relationships to monuments. In front of the venue stands a bronze statue of George Washington, erected in 1882—the same year the Chinese Exclusion Act was passed. Through the piece, artist Enrico D. Wey ruminates on the immaterial parts of the venue and the structure of memory itself. He ultimately creates an intangible monument, not made of stone or metal, but rather of movement, sound and language. “What decides(,) what remains, what remains silent?” Wey asks. “As we pass through these walls that stood/stand/will stand before us, we occupy a space with silent partners. With them, we flow outward, not forward, and in hushed tones, speak volumes.” Composer and sound designer: Fran MM Cabeza de Vaca Lighting designer and production manager: Elliott Cennetoglu Costume designer: Oana Botez

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.” Tours take place at 10am and 11am.

Sandbox Percussion, lauded by The Washington Post as “revitalizing the world of contemporary music” with “jaw- dropping virtuosity,” perform works by the composers inspired by Anton Webern's music: Epstein (b.1959), Ligeti (b.1923-2006) and Cerrone (b.1952).  This concert is a part of a concert series focused on the complete works of Anton Webern; the trademark of the series is the juxtaposition of early and modern music. Anton Webern, (1883-1945) the noted Austrian composer and conductor, remembered for his atonal and serial works, was one of the key figures in the Second Viennese School. Unfortunately, with the rise of Nazis, his music was banned and he spent the last decade of his life in financial constraint and musical isolation. He was not very prolific composer, publishing only 31 works during his lifetime. Yet, he left a great impression with his radical compositions, influencing both his contemporaries and younger generations of musicians.

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.”

Lament From Epirus is an unforgettable journey into a musical obsession, which follows a unique genre back to the roots of song itself. As author Christopher  King hunts for traces of two long-lost virtuosos—one of whom may have committed a murder—he tells the story of the Roma people who pioneered Epirotic folk music and whose descendants continue the tradition today. His journey becomes an investigation into song and dance’s role as a means of spiritual healing—and what this may reveal about music’s original purpose.  Christopher King comes to the Library to discuss his research and share stories and songs of the Epirotic folk music tradition.

Boule de Suif (“Ball of Fat”) is the nickname given to a well-known prostitute who finds herself traveling in a coach with conventionally respectable people through Prussian-occupied France during wartime. The “nice” people contemptuously ignore her, except when she offers them food during the long journey. The travelers are detained by a Prussian officer who will not allow the coach to proceed until Boule de Suif gives herself to him, which she refuses on principle to do. Ironies abound in the story, contrasting Boule de Suif’s authentic principles and generosity with her bourgeois fellow passengers’ shallow platitudes and coldheartedness. Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) was a French writer, remembered as a master of the short story form, and as a representative of the naturalist school of writers, who depicted human lives and destinies and social forces in disillusioned and often pessimistic terms. “Boule de Suif” is one of his best works.

Blending memoir, cultural history, literary criticism, and reporting, Leslie Jamison upends the traditional addiction narrative. In addition to her own struggle, she reflects on creative geniuses whose lives and works were shaped by alcoholism and dependence, drawing connections between intoxication and creation. In a similar way, the disappearance of a small island motel owner sends Cutter Wood careening head first into a murder investigation and interviews of people within its radius. Going beyond the basic facts of the case allows for a meditation on the ways in which we hurt the ones we love. Jamison is a columnist for the New York Times Book Review, and the author of the essay collection The Empathy Exams and the novel The Gin Closet. Wood completed an MFA in creative nonfiction at the University of Iowa in 2010 and his essays have appeared in Harper’s and other magazines. The two will discuss The Recovering and their respective works on toxicity and desire. Registration does not guarantee admission.

Grammy-nominated former Metropolitan Opera concertmaster Elmira Darvarova, violin; Vassily Lobanov, piano. Program: Schumann (1819-1896) Three Romances for Violin and Piano, Op. 22 (1853) Brahms (1833-1897) Violin Sonata No. 3 in D Minor, Op. 108 (1886) Franck (1822-1890) Violin Sonata in A Major (1886) About the Performers Grammy-nominated recording artist, a concert violinist since the age of 4, violinist Elmira Darvarova caused a sensation, becoming the first ever female concertmaster in the history of the Metropolitan Opera in New York. She has performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fischer/ David Geffen Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Symphony Hall in Chicago, Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, Musikverein in Vienna, Cadogan Hall in London, Victoria Hall in Geneva among others. Composer and pianist Vassily Lobanovon conducted masterclasses for piano, chamber music and composition in Russia, Germany, Austria, Poland, Japan, Chile, Finland. Since 1997 Lobanov is professor for piano at the Musikhochschule Köln in Germany. About the Program Composer Clara Schumann (Robert Schumann's wife) considered one of the most distinguished pianists of the Romantic era. She exerted her influence over a 61-year concert career, changing the format and repertoire of the piano recital and the tastes of the listening public. She was the first to perform publicly any work by Brahms. Brahms's Violin Sonata No. 3 in D minor, Op. 108 is the last of his violin sonatas. The piece is dedicated to Brahms' friend and colleague Hans von Bülow, and was premiered in Budapest in 1888 with Jenő Hubay on violin and the composer at the piano. The Sonata in A major for Violin and Piano by César Franck is one of his best-known compositions, and is considered one of the finest sonatas for violin and piano ever written. It is an amalgam of his rich native harmonic language with the Classical traditions he valued highly, held together in a cyclic framework.

On January 20, 2015, The Public Theater premiered a new musical on Ron Chernow’s 832-page biography of U.S. Treasury founder Alexander Hamilton and set off a theater revolution. Casting only people of color as the Founding Fathers and adeptly blending hip-hop and Broadway showstoppers in ways that felt both authentic and exhilarating, Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda became a household name across America. New Yorker writer and host Adam Gopnik and special guests, including actor Christopher Jackson, the show’s original George Washington, delve into the genesis of Broadway’s hottest ticket.

Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” NOVUS NY String Quartet perform works by Webern and more. This concert is a part of a concert series focused on the complete works of Anton Webern; the trademark of the series is the juxtaposition of early and modern music. Program Webern (1883-1945) 5 Sätze für Streichquartett, Op. 5 Webern (1883-1945) Bagatellen für Streichquartett, Op. 9 Webern (1883-1945) Streichquartett, Op. 28 Webern (1883-1945) Streichtrio, Op. 20 Epstein (b.1959) Hidden Flower and Phosphene Anton Webern, the noted Austrian composer and conductor, remembered for his atonal and serial works, was one of the key figures in the Second Viennese School. Unfortunately, with the rise of Nazis, his music was banned and he spent the last decade of his life in financial constraint and musical isolation. He was not very prolific composer, publishing only 31 works during his lifetime. Yet, he left a great impression with his radical compositions, influencing both his contemporaries and younger generations of musicians.

By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force. In his works Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) explored philosophical, social, and political themes, with stories dominated by monopolistic corporations, alternative universes, authoritarian governments, and altered states of consciousness.

How are women, and artists, “seen” and judged by their age, race, and looks? And how does this seeing change, depending upon what is asked of the viewer? In her new memoir, Old in Art School, best-selling historian and visual artist Nell Painter explores these questions with curiosity, openness, and joy—the joy of embracing creativity, dreams, the importance of hard work, and the stubborn determination of your own value. She will be joined in conversation to discuss this and more with Sarah Lewis, esteemed scholar, curator, and author of The Rise. First Come, First Seated. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, but registration does not guarantee admission.

Author Abdi Nor Iftin first fell in love with America from afar. As a child, he learned English by listening to American pop artists like Michael Jackson and watching films starring action heroes like Arnold Schwarzenegger. When U.S. marines landed in Mogadishu to take on the warlords, Abdi cheered the arrival of these real Americans, who seemed as heroic as those of the movies. Sporting American clothes and dance moves, he became known around Mogadishu as Abdi American, but when the radical Islamist group al-Shabaab rose to power in 2006, it suddenly became dangerous to celebrate Western culture. Desperate to make a living, Abdi used his language skills to post secret dispatches to NPR and the Internet, which found an audience of worldwide listeners. But as life in Somalia grew more dangerous, Abdi was left with no choice but to flee to Kenya as a refugee. In an amazing stroke of luck, Abdi won entrance to the U.S. in the annual visa lottery, though his route to America--filled with twists and turns and a harrowing sequence of events that nearly stranded him in Nairobi--did not come easily. Parts of his story were first heard on the BBC World Service and This American Life. Now a proud resident of Maine, on the path to citizenship, Abdi Nor Iftin's dramatic, deeply stirring memoir is truly a story for our time: a vivid reminder of why western democracies still beckon to those looking to make a better life. Abdi Nor Iftin currently lives in Portland, Maine, where he works as an interpreter for Somalis who have immigrated to the state. Abdi was accepted to the University of Southern Maine, where he will be studying political science.

Heitor Villa-Lobos is a Brazilian composer and one of the foremost Latin American composers of the 20th century, whose music combines indigenous melodic and rhythmic elements with Western classical music. Bohuslav Jan Martinů was a Czech composer of modern classical music. In the early 1930s he found his main fount for compositional style, the neoclassicism as developed by Stravinsky. With this, he expanded to become a prolific composer, quickly composing chamber, orchestral, choral and instrumental works. His use of the piano obbligato became his signature.  Jan Dismas Zelenka was a Czech composer and musician of the Baroque period. His music is admired for its harmonic inventiveness and counterpoint.

The story starts with August, an adult anthropologist, returning to New York to bury her father. On the subway, she encounters an old friend, and begins to reminisce. She remembers being a young 8 year old girl moving with her father and younger brother to Brooklyn from Tennessee after the death of her mother. The book then follows August's teenage years when her and her friends face dangers on the streets, and family strife of various types. Jacqueline Woodson is best known for Miracle's Boys, and her titles Brown Girl Dreaming, After Tupac and D Foster, Feathers, and Show Way. She was named the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature by the Library of Congress, for 2018–19.

Once a year, Fête de la Musique showcases some of France’s most vital voices. This year is no different. The singer-songwriter, Vianney, will be performing his affective tunes, which he does often using just his voice, a guitar, and a loop pedal. He’s joined by the idiosyncratic Chassol, a pianist, arranger, and musical director who’s known for his trailblazing “ultrascores,” and collaborative work with Phoenix, Sébastien Tellier, and Frank Ocean. Rounding out the celebration is renaissance man Joakim, a DJ and classically trained pianist who is also a producer, visual artist and sound designer.

This tour will tell the story of the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge, and examine its ever-present historical, technological, and cultural impact.

Marit Wolters's Everything That Is Solid Dissolves Into Air envisions an optimistic image of our society while inviting us to reflect on the transformative potential established by the relational processes stemming from social issues such as migration.   By breaking up standardized methods of processing and assembling materials, the Vienna-based artist Marit Wolters questions the relation we have with the structures that constitute our society. Architecture decisively influences our behavior, our feelings and the way we perceive life. Its structures provide information on social ideas, processes and functional mechanisms. For her solo exhibition, Wolters uses materials that are known from the construction industry: Aerated concrete sculptures and reinforced steel structures are created in a dialectic process of assembly and disassembly, demolding and reformulation.

Within the midtown area one is able to get the full spectrum of the Trump story and his rise to power. The tour will focus on three main things. The first is looking into the man himself and his history. He is well-connected with organized crime, illicit activity and corrupt dealings, and looking into his history in New York gives a window into that. The second is how he, as a symbol for real estate at large, has massively changed New York’s built environment to cater to a billionaire class at the expense of working New Yorkers. The third, potentially most important, is looking at the systemic nature of Trump’s rise in New York. What Trump has done is about a lot more than the single individual, and by looking at the agencies, actors and government institutions that have supported his rise, we can come away with a larger societal understanding of justice in our country.

Spanning sites such as Riverside Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Central Park, Naima Green's photographs present quiet, quotidian portraits—nuanced compositions that revel in her subjects' subtle gestures, varied postures, and soft gazes. Documenting a community that is tight-knit yet sprawling in scope, Green's project deeply engages with the historical and social role of photographic portrait, as a tool deployed to communicate, classify, or reinforce particular notions of subjectivity.

A renowned historian and activist of the American left and LGBTQ movements, Martin Duberman recounts the progressive vision for society as a whole and critiques the left's failure to embrace the queer potential for social transformation. Not without hope, Duberman's history lesson can shine a light towards a truly inclusive and expansive society.   Duberman will be joined in conversation by Jason Baumann, Coordinator of Humanities and LGBT Collections.

During the 20th century, the relationship between capitalism and democracy seemed (to the mainstream) a solid one. Yet, not all felt this way. In 1944 an economist called Karl Polanyi wrote a book which challenged this idea in the wake of the events which lead to fascist Europe. Writer Caleb Crain makes an analysis of Polanyi’s relevance to our own turbulent times through a review of author Robert Kuttner’s Can Democracy Survive Global Capitalism? Crain has published book reviews and essays in publications including The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The London Review of Books, The Nation, The New York Times Book Review, Out and The New Republic. He also published the non-fiction book American Sympathy: Men, Friendship, and Literature in the New Nation.

Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” NOVUS NY String Quartet led by Julian Wachner perform works by Webern and more. This concert is a part of a concert series focused on the complete works of Anton Webern; the trademark of the series is the juxtaposition of early and modern music. Program Webern (1883-1945) 4 Stücke für Violine und Klavier, Op. 7 Webern (1883-1945) 3 Kleine Stücke für Violoncello und Klavier, Op. 11 Webern (1883-1945) Quartet, Op. 22 Webern (1883-1945) Variationen für Klavier, Op. 27 Epstein (b.1959) Oil and Sugar and Wonders of the Invisible World Holliger (1939) Harp Sequenza Rouse (b.1949)  Compline Anton Webern, the noted Austrian composer and conductor, remembered for his atonal and serial works, was one of the key figures in the Second Viennese School. Unfortunately, with the rise of Nazis, his music was banned and he spent the last decade of his life in financial constraint and musical isolation. He was not very prolific composer, publishing only 31 works during his lifetime. Yet, he left a great impression with his radical compositions, influencing both his contemporaries and younger generations of musicians.

The exhibition explores the confluence of art, love, science, and religion in the extraordinary art of Orra White Hitchcock, one of America’s first female scientific illustrators. Her marriage in 1821 to Amherst College professor Edward Hitchcock cemented a years-long friendship and collaboration based on a bedrock of faith and science, mutual respect, close observation, and mental capacity for the largest of ideas. Orra White exhibited a prodigious scientific mind and abundant artistic talent at an early age. The exhibition traces her development from schoolgirl projects to highly accomplished renderings of the natural scenery of the Connecticut River Valley used in her husband’s many geology publications. Less well known are colorful paintings on cotton—some more than twelve feet long—that were used to illustrate her husband’s many college lectures on geology, botany, zoology, and anatomy. In these, Orra White Hitchcock communicated complex scientific principles in abstract visual terms that now appear gorgeously fresh and modern. With: Stacy C. Hollander, acting director of the museum.

Grammy Award winning contributing editor for Rolling Stone Anthony DeCurtis (who knew and interviewed Reed extensively) tells the story of Lou Reed’s life in an illuminating tribute to one of the most incendiary artists of our time. DeCurtis tracks Reed's progress through the accounts of those who knew him and through Reed's most revealing testimony, his music, as well as his relationships with such legendary figures as Andy Warhol, David Bowie, and Laurie Anderson. Lou Reed was the lead guitarist, singer and principal songwriter for the rock band the Velvet Underground, with a solo career that spanned five decades. The Velvet Underground achieved little commercial success during their existence, but are now regarded as one of the most influential bands in rock, underground, and alternative music.

Aimee Mann is at the height of her powers: her mostly acoustic 2017 record Mental Illness is her "quintessential statement, tempering the discord of life with elegant chamber-folk." (Pitchfork) Since the early '90s she has steadily built a remarkable catalogue that includes nine studio albums and countless special projects, always anchored by her contemplative lyrics and gorgeous, lilting melodies. Her original contributions to the soundtrack of Paul Thomas Anderson's masterpiece Magnolia earned her both Grammy and Academy Award nominations. The seminal pop-punk band Superchunk co-headlines, riding a wave of momentum generated by their 2018 release What a Time to Be Alive, a snarling polemic against our current political moment. The band's punk-influenced DIY ethos led members Mac McCaughan and Laura Ballance to found an independent label in 1989 to release their own music, and that label, Merge Records, went on to stratospheric success. Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter and raconteur Jonathan Coulton, known for his songs about geek culture and technology, opens.

Sin Ti is a spectacular act of intimacy between a woman and the void. Live cinema, physical storytelling, theater, music, and a room of mirrors set the stage for Yara Travieso's one-woman sci-fi telenovela. At once intimate, voyeuristic, and drenched in spectacle, Sin Ti dives deep into the mind of a woman in an emotional rebellion against "the gaze." Shattering the expectations of the traditional "love story" is part of a continued dismantling process for Travieso who creates neo-feminist myths.

Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” NOVUS NY String Quartet led by Julian Wachner perform works by  the composers inspired by Anton Webern's music: Ligeti (b.1923-2006), Babbitt (1916-2011) and Lutoslawsk (1913-1994). This concert is a part of a concert series focused on the complete works of Anton Webern; the trademark of the series is the juxtaposition of early and modern music. Anton Webern, the noted Austrian composer and conductor, remembered for his atonal and serial works, was one of the key figures in the Second Viennese School. Unfortunately, with the rise of Nazis, his music was banned and he spent the last decade of his life in financial constraint and musical isolation. He was not very prolific composer, publishing only 31 works during his lifetime. Yet, he left a great impression with his radical compositions, influencing both his contemporaries and younger generations of musicians.

The play traces the long life of the alleged seer from the time he was struck blind as punishment, through his tenure as unheard advisor to generations of Theban rulers, through his strange afterlife—which may still be going on. In Greek mythology, Tiresias was a blind prophet of Apollo in Thebes, famous for clairvoyance and for being transformed into a woman for seven years.  Written by David Richman with Cecilia Rubino.
