Why to Hit the Whit! Whitney Biennial is in full swing!

It’s Whitney Biennial time! The walls of the Whitney are filled with interesting, beautiful, thought provoking works that make a great outing with kids. The idea of the Biennial is that all of the works have been made within the last 2 years, so they’re “hot off the presses!” Different textures and techniques make it an engaging time–we  loved the tent made of lace and beaded curtain hung with ordinary objects by Joel Otterson as well as an impressive room installation that reflects the outside architecture and cityscape by Zoe Leonard.

On upcoming Saturdays, kids have the added opportunity to meet some of the artists in their Family Programs. The Whitney is slated to move downtown in 2015 so this is the last Biennial in its current home, and not to be missed. Pop over to the park afterwards for a really “New York” day! Enjoy!

PS: Check out kids’ audio downloads here.


Girl Rising

We had the opportunity to see an amazing movie last night with our friends at 85 Broads. Girl Rising is about what happens when a girl is given the gift and privilege of education. The documentary turns on the fact that if you invest in the education of girls, the investment is proven to pay back in spades. Tracing poignant stories of girls from all over the world: Nepal, Peru, India, Afghanistan, Egypt, Haiti, Sierra Leone, the documentary effectively conveys both the challenges of being a girl in many developing nations and how these young “regular” girls rose up to the challenges, and were empowered by the opportunity of schooling. It is a phenomenal movie that inspires change, action and should be shared. Check it out here – plan a screening, attend a screening, support the cause.

A Family that Tags together Stays together!

Visit the Museum of the City of New York on Saturdays in May (10th, 17th, 24th and 31st) and make a large scale mural, as a companion activity to the Museum’s exhibition, City as Canvas: Graffiti Art from the Martin Wong Collection.

And, closer in time (this Thursday) – but what I think will be more of an adult event than kid-fun, the museum is screening “Wild Style” and hosting a chat with the movie’s director Charlie Ahearn, who will also speak about graffiti artist celebrated in the museum’s current exhibit City as Canvas, Martin Wong. “Wild Style” was the world’s first hip hop motion picture. Also on hand for the evening will be street artists Zephyr & Sharp. Light refreshments will be served.

Wild Style is free for Museum members; $12 students/seniors; $16 general public.  6:00pm, Thursday, March 20 @mcny.
