Art and Activism: “Takin’ it to the Streets” @ SVA Theatre
Sep 4 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Art and Activism: “Takin’ it to the Streets”

Wednesday, September 4, 2019

SVA Theatre
333 West 23rd Street

The third annual Art & Activism event produced by School of Visual Arts, Division of Continuing Education, celebrates the power of collectives, performance as political activism, and artistic activations of public spaces.

A panel discussion will present a collaboration between Sing for Hope, an organization connecting artists, music and the city streets; and the Hetrick-Martin Institute, which provides social services, community, and arts programming to LGBTQ youth. With the support of artist Joan Di Lieto, and illustrator and SVA faculty member Grant Shaffer, youths from HMI’s after-school art program designed and painted a piano, which spent the summer in NYC’s Astor Place Plaza as a functional, accessible artwork for the streets and communities of our city.

Artist, curator, and director of New York City’s Percent for Art Program, Kendal Henry, will discuss the contemporary role of monuments in public spaces, and his work with local communities and She Built to develop 18 new monuments representing women.

Photographer Stacy Arezou Mehrfar’s emotionally rich portraits of demonstrators at marches across New York City after the 2016 election, will be displayed in backlit lightboxes throughout the theater lobby. An excerpt of her large-scale video installation, A Collective Performance will be screened at the start of the evening.
Media personality Valerie Smaldone moderates.

Brand New Fishing Clinics for Kids and Adults in Brooklyn Bridge Park This Summer

Free

August 9, 14 & September 14, 2019

Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy (Conservancy) and Brooklyn Bridge Park (BBP) are offering over 500 free and low-cost events over the course of the summer, which marks the 20th Anniversary of the Conservancy’s free, public programming in BBP.

This summer, the Conservancy is proud to announce the launch of brand-new Fishing Clinics for kids and adults.

Participants can learn how to tie fishing knots, bait a hook, cast a fishing rod, and even reel up a fish. Guided by a marine biologist and expert anglers, they will learn the basics of line fishing, while catch-and-releasing some of Brooklyn Bridge Park’s aquatic organisms. The clinics are produced in part by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, and equipment is provided on-site. While sessions are drop-in, participants are encouraged to RSVP on the website so that instructors can gauge flow.

Fishing Clinics
August 17, September 14, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
August 9, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Forest Bathing: Seeking Wellness through Nature

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

At the Japan Society
333 E 47th Street

Learn more about purchasing tickets here…

In Japan, the practice of shinrin-yoku, or “forest bathing” is hailed for its therapeutic effects. Proponents believe that by simply immersing ourselves in the atmosphere of a forest, we can soak in the healing power of trees. In a fast-paced world, forest bathing is a chance to be mindful of our surroundings, and to connect with nature through our senses.

At this talk, Dr. Yoshifumi Miyazaki, former deputy director of Chiba University’s Center for Environment, Health, and Field Sciences and author of Shinrin Yoku: The Japanese Art of Forest Bathing, examines the scientific evidence behind the concept of forest bathing and its potential to enhance wellness and happiness. Discover how you can connect with nature through this Japanese tradition, wherever you live.

In Japanese with English interpretation. Followed by a book signing reception.
