Animal Amigos: Stories from the Tree of Life
Gather ’round the Tree of Life for a retelling of two delightful Mexican folktales! Hear the story of Medio Pollito, the little half-chicken born with one leg, one wing, one eye, and half a beak! Then laugh as Rabbit, a perennial trickster, outsmarts hungry Coyote again and again. This show was created with support from a grant from the Jim Henson Foundation.
The International Center of Photography and Southampton Arts Center are thrilled to co-present the National Geographic Photo Ark exhibition this summer, featuring the compelling and visually stunning work of National Geographic photographer and Fellow Joel Sartore. The exhibition will highlight Sartore’s images from his work in more than 250 zoos, aquariums and animal rescue centers around the world. This exhibition is made possible by the Harbers Family Foundation and Renee Harbers and Chris Liddell and is organized and traveled by the National Geographic Society. NOTE: Galleries will open at 1 PM on Saturday, August 24 and will be closed on Saturday, July 27 and Thursday, August 29
This documentary explores the iconoclastic life of museum curator Henry Geldzahler. A voice in the wilderness during the 1960s, Geldzahler championed the work of pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, who were not highly accepted in the art scene. Through footage from the era and interviews with artists, the film reveals Geldzahler's contributions to the art world -- including his landmark exhibition "New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The screening followed by panel discussion moderated by Holly Peterson with Bob Colacello, Lisa Dennison, Met Director Max Hollein, Jane Holzer and Director/Producer Peter Rosen.
