Concert | CANCELLED!!!! Music Rooted in Venezuelan Traditions


Maria Alejandra Rodriguez is a producer, composer and performer who emigrated from Venezuela several years ago and has been entertaining her audiences in Spanish with bossa nova, cha cha, and Latin jazz. It's her program of boleros--the torch-like love song first popularized at the end of 18th century Spain and spread extensively throughout 19th century Cuba--and her many original compositions, that leaves her audience asking for more. At times she accompanies her band on a cuatro, which is a small Venezuelan guitar. Rodriguez plays music rooted in Venezuelan traditions, and has performed at concert halls including Teatro Para Todos, Hoy Como Ayer, Miami Hilton Intercontinental Wynwood Kitchen and Bar, and MOCA Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami. She also performed sold out shows in New York at Terraza Seven, El Taller Latinoamericano, Casa Mezcal, Antibes Bistro and Shrine World Music Venue.

Lecture | CANCELLED***Ghost on the Throne: The Death of Alexander the Great and the Bloody Fight for his Empire***CANCELLED


***THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELELD*** When Alexander the Great died at the age of thirty-two, his empire stretched from the Adriatic Sea in the west all the way to modern-day India in the east. In an unusual compromise, his two heirs--a mentally damaged half brother, Philip III, and an infant son, Alexander IV, born after his death--were jointly granted the kingship. But six of Alexander's Macedonian generals, spurred by their own thirst for power and the legend that Alexander bequeathed his rule "to the strongest," fought to gain supremacy. Perhaps their most fascinating and conniving adversary was Alexander's former Greek secretary, Eumenes, now a general himself, who would be the determining factor in the precarious fortunes of the royal family. James Romm, professor of classics at Bard College, brings to life the cutthroat competition and the struggle for control of the Greek world's greatest empire.

Gallery Talk | CANCELLED!!!! American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum Collection: Exhibition Tour


Everyone has a story to tell--a life lived, witness to and participant in events both private and shared. Such moments are captured by American folk and self-taught artists in powerful visual narratives that offer firsthand testimony to chapters in the unfolding story of America from its inception to the present. American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum Collection showcases more than seventy stellar works of folk and self-taught art from the museum's premier collection. Beautiful, diverse, and truthful, the art illuminates the thoughts and experiences of individuals with an immediacy that is palpable and unique to these expressions. The artworks are organized into four sections--Founders, Travelers, Philosophers, and Seekers--that respond to such themes as nationhood, freedom, community, imagination, opportunity, and legacy. Evocative visual juxtapositions and accessible contextual information further reveal the vital role that folk art plays as a witness to history, carrier of cultural heritage, and a reflection of the world at large through the eyes, heart, and mind of the artist.
