On Wednesday we focus on the mind and body. We will connect with partners from the past, present and future including Eddie Stern, Bob Roth of the David Lynch Foundation, Bandier, Meditation DJ Daniel Lauter, the Shou Sugi Ban House, and the Wellness Foundation. Not only will we continue to present our own virtual programs but we will share what our friends are offering online for all to take advantage of.
Because you can’t mess with perfection, we will share our own memories as part of this longstanding social media tradition, from Peter Marino’s Counterpoint, to the Silent Disco Outdoor Dance Parties, National Geographic Photo Ark by Joel Sartore, and SummerFest – there are so many wonderful things to look back on and remember fondly. And it will only remind us of the many incredible things we have to look forward to.
Fridays are dedicated to film recommendations that can be screened from the comfort of your homes. From moving documentaries to Mother’s Day favorites, popular films we have shown in the past, and others we had planned to show. We hope to be able to serve as a guide for what you will be streaming over the weekend.
There are so many incredible restaurants in our community. Each Saturday we will spotlight a different local restaurant offering delivery and take-away meals. We will also help curate an enjoyable evening at home with some recommended entertainment or thematic music to accompany the cuisine featured that day.
Backyard dance parties, collaborative crafts, excursions in the car…Sunday is all about fun with the family. Each week we will share an idea to help inspire your weekend activities with the family, whether virtual or in real life.
Daniel finally returns to SAC after a series of virtual sound meditations. Join us for a soothing, deeply relaxing, and immersive Soundbath Meditation with Daniel's exquisite original set of crystal bowls, gongs, hang drum, Tibetan and Himalayan bells, rain sticks, ocarina, didj, and other objects d’sound. This one-of-a-kind experience will melt away stress and leave you calm, recharged, your mind clear and vibrant! Bring your own mats/blanets. Great for all skill levels.
Presented by New York Academy of Art with Southampton Arts Center. Curated by David Kratz and Stephanie Roach, and edited by Emma Gilbey Keller. Artists and writers are always the antennae of our society, all the more so at a time as challenging as this one. They have an opportunity—some might say, a duty—to interpret this moment and imagine the world not only as it is, but also as it could be. This is the guiding challenge of the group exhibition, 2020 Vision. We asked artists, writers, and creative thinkers to consider three questions of critical importance: Our lives will never be the same, but what will change look like? What do we want to keep as we rebuild? And what must we guard against? We invited these creators to express what they saw, what they felt, and what they experienced during this time of pause and reassessment, upheaval and risk, and anxiety and uncertainty. It is our hope that 2020 Vision marks one of many beginnings in the necessary process of ‘post-traumatic growth’ and positive change for our society and our world.
