Gallery Talk | (IN-PERSON, indoors) Requim for Robbins: The DC Comics Art of Frank Robbins


In conjunction with our current exhibition Frank Robbins: The Prodigy, featuring the lesser-known body of paintings by the famed comic book writer and artist, this is a gallery talk by comic book art historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art). In 1971 Robbins, already established for years as a DC Comics writer on their Batman titles, became the first creative talent to both write and illustrate a Batman story in the character's published history, the first of four that Robbins would execute over the next year; then, in 1974, Robbins illustrated for DC four issues of one of Batman's major inspirations, The Shadow. Both of Robbins' runs created considerable controversy among fans at the time for his radical, stylized approach to "superhero" illustration, one that continues to elicit strong reactions, fifty years later.

Performance | (IN-PERSON, outdoors) All Stories True: An Experimental Program of Film, Spoken Word, and Improvised Music


A world premiere by Justin Randolph Thompson. The event kicks off with live jazz performed by the acclaimed Soundwork. Then, Justin Randolph Thomas and his collaborators present an experimental program of film, spoken word, and improvised music that reflects on the hanging of Louis Till in 1945 by the US military in Italy – just a decade before the lynching of his son Emmett Till in the US. Of note, the evening also includes the US premiere of Justin Randolph Thompson’s 2020 short film Doan Yu Tell No One I Made It. Ultimately, All Stories True intends to connect geographies and notions of predatory blackness through geo-psycho continuities and a sonic capacity for mourning.

Museums | (IN-PERSON) 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.

Park Walk | (In-Person) Foraging Tour: Sweet Cherries, Mulberries, Chicken Mushrooms, and More


Because this park includes so many varied habitats, it's loaded with shoots and greens in early summer, and many of these renewable resources are edible and medicinal. You'll find spicy hedge mustar, poor man's pepper greens, celery-, parsley-, and carrot-flavored goutweed, violet leaves and flowers. You'll also find spicy field pennycress, another member of the mustard family, growing near corn-flavored chickweed. This is also a great time for berries. You'll be collecting large quantities of red, white, and pink mulberries, as well as juneberries and sweet cherries. If there's been enough rain beforehand, the park is an excellent place for mushrooms. Chicken mushrooms, dryad's saddle, and wine-cap stropharias may be growing in abundance. The tour will last for about 4 hours.

The Andes Mountains are coming...and they're bringing the Amazon and South America's Pacific Coast. Ayazamana -- a dance-and-music troupe that's part to the Ecuadorian American Cultural Center -- will present an outdoor show. Wearing ponchos, shawls, sombreros, and braids that date back to the Incan Empire, several dozen artists will take audiences on imaginary jaunts through Ecuador via traditional dances and celebrations. They might swashbuckle around the stage with machetes or chant and stomp. And they'll definitely whirl and balance bottles on their heads.

Opening Reception | (IN-PERSON, indoors) Transfiguration: Leaving Reality Behind


A group show featuring works in all media from paintings to NFTs While figuration dominates this particular moment in art, our exhibition explores one alluring aspect of figuration: transfiguration, the transformation of faces, bodies and identities. Through transfiguration we will explore the un-real real, and, to paraphrase the notorious internet artist group etoy. Participating artists range in age from their mid-twenties to ninety years old. Artworks in the show date from the 1990s to yesterday. The works include avatars, digital constructs, puppets, paintings, watercolors, sculptures, photographs, videos, and NFTs.

Park Walk | (In-Person) Foraging Tour in Central Park: Sweet Berries, Wild Herbs and Vegetables, and More


Central Park, always a great park for foraging, is spectacular in early summer. The fruits alone make the park worth visiting. Two species of mulberries, red and white, and their pink hybrid, drop berries everywhere. You only need to position a drop cloth under a branch and shake, to harvest a year's supply. These berries are perfect in any fruit recipe. They make great jam, and they freeze well too. When the bushes get full sunlight, the juneberries (serviceberries) are also spectacular. With a sweet flavor like blueberries, apples, and almonds, it's a testament to our disregard for nature that no one has ever cultivated this top-notch fruit. Wild herbs and vegetables thrive throughout the park. You'll be looking for poor man's pepper, sheep sorrel, wood sorrel, lamb's-quarters, wild ginger, greenbrier, lady's thumb, purslane, and Asiatic dayflower. Epazote is one of the park's best culinary herbs. A mainstay in Mexican cuisine, it's great in guacamole, salsa, and bean dishes. The tour will last for about 4 hours.

Discussion | Egg Rolls, Egg Creams, and Empanadas Festival: Folk Arts (Zoom)


Learn about Vejigante masks from Puerto Rico and Chinese and Jewish paper cutting! Folk arts are centered around community. Folk groups reflect and communicate their values, ideas, and beliefs across generations. They are a part of lifecycle events, holiday celebrations, religious observances, and everyday life. Folk arts are passed down from parent to child, elder to younger, or master to apprentice. In the process, the arts are often adapted to accommodate changing situations. But their roots in tradition are ever present. Join a tour of Felipe Rangel's home and studio, featuring the brilliant Vejigante Mask of Puerto Rico. Artists Ling Tang and Rachel Asarnow will discuss the similarities and differences between Chinese and Jewish paper cutting and demonstrate the unique art forms and describe their traditions.

Opera | Met Opera: Verdi's La Traviata (virtual, streaming for 23 hours)


La Traviata's sumptuous melodies and timeless depiction of doomed love have made the work a favorite of generations of operagoers. In his approach to this classic drama, director Willy Decker sets the action on a nearly bare stage, focusing the audience's full attention on the three main characters. As Violetta, the ailing courtesan desperate to escape her past, soprano Sonya Yoncheva offers a fearless and sympathetic performance from beginning to end. American tenor Michael Fabiano sings with ardent longing as her devoted lover Alfredo, delivering emotionally wrought phrases and ringing top notes. Thomas Hampson brings a burnished baritone to Germont, Alfredo's protective father whose stern demands spell disaster for the young couple. On the podium, maestro Nicola Luisotti leads an electric performance of Verdi's unforgettable score. From March 11, 2017.
