Central Park Conservancy

This Martin Luther King Day we reflect on the activism the great civil rights leader both built upon and inspired in Central Park. Two opportunities to watch: Saturday, January 15, 10:00am and Monday, January 17, 1:00pm. From dissent over the use of eminent domain to take the land that would become Central Park in the 1800s to the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020, this virtual program will reveal the many ways Central Park has and continues to be a place where people from all walks of life feel empowered to exercise their right to freedom of speech, peacefully protest, and take a stand for what they believe in.

This is a virtual program that takes place over Zoom. Closed captioning is available. Only one ticket per group necessary. Please note: registration confirmation may be diverted to your junk mail.

Works of Schulhoff and Dvořák show a combination of intimacy and orchestral richness possible only in a string sextet. Setting the stage is the Op. 104 Quintet of Beethoven, the composer’s own arrangement of one of his popular early piano trios—a creative translation that highlights his later reverence for the expressive potential of string ensembles.

Join us for the first installment of our monthly LGBTQ+ film club, which gives voice and visibility to the wide scope of LGBTQ+ experiences through film. This month's feature film, Gen Silent, is a 2010 documentary directed and produced by Stu Maddux. The documentary follows the lives of six LGBTQ+ older adults living in the Boston area and examines the choice many LGBTQ+ older adults face; whether or not they will hide their sexuality in order to survive in the long-term health care systems.

American Folk Art Museum

American Weathervanes: The Art of the Winds is the first exhibition in more than four decades to highlight the beauty, historical significance, and technical virtuosity of American vanes fashioned between the late seventeenth and early twentieth centuries.

The exhibition includes the graceful figure of Fame blowing a trumpet and standing en pointe like a celestial ballerina, attributed to well-known manufactory E.G. Washburne & Co. in New York City, a Dove of Peace designed by George Washington for his home in Mount Vernon; and an eagle possibly made in the foundry of revolutionary patrior Paul Revere. In addition to weathervanes, the exhibiton will also include beautifully articuated wood sculptures by Harry Leach that functioned as patterns for weathevane molds for the Cushing & White and L.W. & Sons manufactories in Waltham, MA., watercolors of historic weathervanes painted for the Index of American Design, and rare archival materials that illuminate the development of the weathervane in the United States of America.


A full-color, illustrated, 224-page publication accompanies the exhibition, published by Rizzoli International Publications in association with the American Folk Art Museum. Authored by exhibition curator Robert Shaw, the book includes contributions by Jason T. Busch and Jennifer Mass, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Cultural Heritage Science at the Bard Graduate Center. This seminal scholarly work will have a significant impact on our understanding of this early American sculptural art form, serving as the authoritative text on American weathervanes for generations to come.


Robert Shaw is the guest curator of American Weathervanes. Emelie Gevalt is the coordinating curator of the exhibition.

In 1922, one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century was born, and through his darkly comic works he spoke out about the ravages of war, political corruption, social injustice, and human foibles. We honor this prolific, complex, and remarkable author with an evening of humorous and poignant short fiction curated from the posthumously published collection, Complete Stories. Hosted by Jordan Klepper (The Daily Show), with video commentary from Hari Kondabolu (The Problem with Apu), and featuring performances by Becky Ann Baker (New Amsterdam), Dylan Baker (Hunters), Teagle F. Bougere (Queen America), Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer (Beetlejuice on Broadway), and Bhavesh Patel (Present Laughter).

Please note: Hari Kondabolu is no longer able to attend in person, and instead will join us from his home.

New York Public Library for the Performing Arts

This event is online only.

Cultural Historian Louise Kerz Hirschfeld discusses her varied career and life in theatre and television with Susan Haskins, longtime Producer and Co-Host of TheaterTalk. She discusses her early years, becoming interested in the theatre in her 20's, and assisting scenic designer and producer Leo Kerz, with whom she was eventually married and raised two sons. Following her first husband's passing, she spent the next 20 years as a single mother working in television, as a guest curator for museums and galleries, and as a researcher for the Tony Awards.

She then married theatrical caricaturist Al Hirschfeld, gaining an even richer relationship with the theatre world, and eventually became the President of the Al Hirschfeld Foundation. After Hirschfeld's passing, she met American businessman and philanthropist Lewis Cullman and their philanthropic work dovetailed and led to a third happy marriage. Louise remains dedicated to theatre, the arts, and supporting the work of the Hirschfeld Foundation.

Produced by the Theatre on Film and Tape Archive (TOFT), the interview was recorded at the Library for the Performing Arts on October 7, 2021 in front of the Al Hirschfeld permanent installation and the Bruno Walter Auditorium. It is presented here in its world premiere as part of our ongoing series The Creative Process.

Legendary Comedy Teams on Film

The only thing funnier than one comedian is two comedians. Ideally, one plays it “straight” in order to make the other’s madcap antics even more uproarious. Think Oliver Hardy giving a slow burn to the camera after bumbling Stan Laurel makes yet “another fine mess.” Think Dean Martin trying to perform a love song while bumbling Jerry Lewis steals the show. A comedy team can also offset each other with fast-paced rhetoric (Bud Abbott & Lou Costello), clashing personalities (George Burns & Gracie Allen, Thelma Todd & ZaSu Pitts), and even clashing lifestyles (Walter Matthau & Jack Lemmon).

Join film historian Max Alvarez for this tribute to vintage pratfalls, one-liners, slapstick stunts, and hilarious comedic angst. Comedy is all in the timing – and these brilliant cinematic comedy teams could not have returned at a better time!
