Lincoln Center Restart Stages

Choreographer Stefanie Batten Bland has made an international name for herself in the dance community with a body of work that is provocative, visually arresting and thematically daring. Fresh back from a reopening performance at The Yard on Martha’s Vineyard and a residency at the Baryshnikov Arts Center, seven members of her troupe, Company SBB, will present Look Who's Coming to Dinner, a kinetic reimagining of Stanley Kramer’s landmark 1967 film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. Where that classic movie captured the shifting racial tensions of its time as a comedy of manners, Bland's piece honors prior generations’ sacrifice toward a more justly integrated world, while acknowledging the continuing inequities of who has access to a seat at the table. 

Seats are available via the TodayTix Lottery. Enter for a chance to win a FREE pod (two seats) starting two weeks before the show. Entries close three days before a performance at 12:59 pm ET.

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.

Museum of Arts and Design

Craft was once at the margins of the art world, but no longer. Today it is front and center in art galleries, museums, and fairs, widely recognized for its expressive potential and cultural significance. Assembled from the eclectic richness of MAD’s permanent collection, Craft Front & Center brings together more than 70 iconic and lesser-known works to highlight key thematic touchpoints in craft’s history that have brought us to this moment. Challenging traditional thinking of craft as separate from fine art, the exhibition reveals the field's deep engagement in art’s major movements, such as Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and Postmodernism, while also launching its own revolutions, particularly the elevation of women and people of color as significant artists.

The Museum of Arts and Design collection comprises over 3,000 artworks in clay, fiber, glass, metal, and wood, dating from the post-war studio craft movement through to contemporary art and design. With an aim to subvert traditional hierarchies in the arts, the collection advocates for the central role of craft in art and society. Toward that end, Craft Front & Center is organized into eight themes exploring craft’s impact. Each section is punctuated with pivotal and rarely seen works from iconic makers, such as Betty Woodman, Marvin Lipofsky, and Magdalena Abakanowicz. The exhibition also casts a fresh eye on craft’s pioneers; celebrating Olga de Amaral, Charles Loloma, Patti Warashina, and others who pushed the boundaries of materials and sought more inclusive sources of inspiration. Showcasing the diversity and expressive power of the handmade as only MAD can, the exhibition affirms craft as one of the most exciting spaces for experimentation and wonder in art today.

EXHIBITION THEMES

In the Formation of Identity
From the personal to the political, craft stimulates important conversations around race, gender, and sexuality.

Handmade objects are potent receptacles of emotions and memories, infused with human warmth that enliven and enrich the home.

What Can You Do with an Object?
A look back at the seminal exhibition Objects: USA, and the works displayed whose innovations still resonate. 

What Can You Do with a Thread?
Fiber artists past and present have generated works of amazing complexity and conceptual ingenuity. 

What Can You Do with Clay?
The funny and eccentric “Funk” movement was embraced by California ceramicists in the 1960s and remains a major influence on younger makers today.

What Can You Do with Glass?
A focused retrospective of the career of studio-glass pioneer Marvin Lipofsky.

What Can You Do with Craft?
