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.
Practice your drawing skills in this three-session series with artist Linda Capello. Participants will practice drawing a live model through gesture sketches and longer duration observation. All skill levels are welcome, ages 16+. The classes will take place in our spacious theater allowing for ample physical distancing. Faces masks required.
As much as we look forward to spending time with you at our annual SummerFest celebration and gala, current government restrictions prohibit us from gathering in large groups. This year calls for a new approach. As such, we are taking this moment to honor, recognize and thank SAC’s most cherished and loyal friends by introducing our 2020 Patrons Circle. In lieu of supporting our annual Summerfest Gala, we invite past SummerFest supporter and longtime friends of SAC to join our new 2020 Patrons Circle. Your contribution will allow us to continue SAC’s year-round programming and serve as a critical economic driver that will lead this community out of these unsure times. Additionally, in return for your support or $10,000 or above, you will receive: - Two or Four seats to an intimate Appreciation Dinner to be held on Friday, August 21 in SAC’s Caesar Garden ($10,000/$25,000) - Recognition on summer 2020 Patrons Circle Wall inside SAC’s front gallery - Free admission to all SAC events this summer - A private tour of SAC’s Summer Exhibition 2020 VISION, in partnership with the New York Academy of Arts - Satisfaction in knowing that your contribution will significantly support this organization and our community during these challenging times
