    Come and join us for a New Orleans style Mardi Gras celebration with trumpeters Riley Mulherkar and Alphonso Horne, dancers Michela Lerman, Ayodele Casel, Marija Abne, and Monique Scott, Big Chief Carl Hopkins, trombonists Andy Clausen and Jefferey Miller, tuba player/trombonist Corey Wilcox, clarinetist Patrick Bartley, guitarist Gabe Schnider, pianist David Linard, bassist Russell Hall, and drummers Sammy Miller and Kyle Poole. Riley Mulherkar and Alphonso Horne are two of the most prominent and promising young trumpeters in jazz. They make regular appearances at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, thanks in part to the numerous bandleaders scrambling to hire them, and tonight they co-lead our Mardi Gras celebration for the second year in a row. For the festive occasion, they will treat audiences to the infectious sounds of Creole jazz. This concert will channel the virtuosity of a young Louis Armstrong and the innovative genius of King Oliver, weaving the sounds of New Orleans into a rich musical fabric that uplifts and warms the soul. With special Mardi Gras drinks on the menu, the club will be in good spirits for this special occasion. There are two sets: 7:30pm and 9:30pm.

  • Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years

    Museum of Art and Design
    2 Columbus Circle
    New York [map]
    Price: $16.00
    Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturday and Sundays 10:00pm - 06:00pm
    October 18, 2016 - March 15, 2017

    Spanning the years 1953–1968, Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years is the first exhibition to focus on the early career of Peter Voulkos, whose radical methods and ideas during this period opened up the possibilities for clay in ways that are still being felt today. While trained as a traditional potter, Voulkos defied mid-century craft dictums of proper technique and form to completely reinvent his medium. He combined wheel throwing with slab building, traditional glazes with epoxy paint, figuration with abstraction, and made huge ceramic structures with complex internal engineering. The exhibition will feature approximately 31 examples from this crucial body of early work, most of which have not been exhibited on the East Coast for four decades. Also included will be three of the artist's rarely seen works in oil on canvas, which help to demonstrate how Voulkos developed his ideas concurrently in painting, sculpture, and pottery. Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years is part of MAD Transformations, a series of six exhibitions that address artists who have transformed and continue to transform our perceptions of traditional craft mediums. MAD’s six fall exhibitions consider fiber, clay, and jewelry & metals, disciplines that were the bedrock of the museum’s founding mission and collection, and that continue to morph in the hands of contemporary artists today.
