ZOOM Talk – The Social Dilemma: How Digital Media Undermines Young People’s Wellbeing & What We Can Do About It

Join Larissa Rhodes, producer of the new hit film, The Social Dilemma in conversation with Josh Golin and Jean Rogers of Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood. Featuring former Facebook, Google, and Twitter employees, The Social Dilemma reveals how the business model for digital media exacerbates some of the most pressing problems we face today, including misinformation, polarization, and a host of problems related to social media overuse. Not surprisingly, children and young people are most susceptible to the techniques social media companies use to keep us endlessly scrolling and posting.

Larissa, Jean and Josh will share clips from the film and discuss what we can do —  as families, communities, and a society – to keep digital media from interfering with children’s healthy development.

While it is recommended that attendees watch The Social Dilemma on Netflix prior to the December 9th discussion, it is not necessary.

Zoom Bedtime Stories: Enzo and the Christmas Tree Hunt

with Author Garth Stein

We close out the holiday season  and the year with a very special bedtime story session featuring bestselling author Garth Stein. Get the kids in their cuddly duds and get them tucked into bed to join us for an adventure with the exceptional dog Enzo, made famous from The Art of Racing in the Rain.

Denny, Zoë and Enzo head off to the tree farm, filled with noble firs, cider, and Newfoundlands—the biggest dogs Enzo has ever seen, who help haul the Christmas trees away on sleds. But as Zoë and Enzo search for the ultimate tree, the snow begins to fall and Zoë loses her way. When Enzo comes to her rescue (with a few of his perfect puppy howls), he proves that family is never far behind.

Fans will delight in Enzo’s wise personality and funny antics.

THE COLLECTORS SALE – Benefit Art Sale Event

It continues! Many of the available works have been reinstalled behind the big wall in the back gallery, so you can still come and see them in person to help with your purchase decision making! 

While the season usually comes to a celebratory close with the annual SummerFest event, the current government restrictions prohibiting gatherings of groups of more than 50 has forced all non-profits to think outside the box and create a new approach to fundraising. With that, we are thrilled to announced

Artists and collectors were asked to contribute to this special fundraiser by generously donating a work or works of art. Over 80 artists and collectors have shown their support by donating 105 works. Now it is your turn to purchase them!

All proceeds from this fundraising art sale will allow SAC to continue its diverse slate of year-round programming.

SAC Storefront Art Project – MONICA BANKS: Inequality Bakery

We are thrilled to continue the Storefront Art Project with artist Monica Banks and her new installation, Inequality Bakery, on view now in the windows of 53A Jobs Lane!

Art in unexpected places can be jarring, evocative, and delightful. By creating the Inequality Bakery, Monica Banks aims to stop passersby in their tracks by reminding them that the occasions we celebrate, such as birthdays and anniversaries, also call to mind all those who could not attend our parties. During this global crisis of climate emergency, social injustice, and the pandemic, cupcakes threaten to bite each other, and cakes supporting dead birds, teeth, broken ladders, and pushpins all express our new reality. During this dark time, Clouds are symbols of darkness and light. The Inequality Bakery is meant to seduce with pastel colors, sparkle, and sweetness. The Southampton sidewalk is the perfect location for pondering this contradiction.

Thank you to Mayor Jesse Warren and the Trustees of the Village of Southampton for their support of this ongoing project as well as Melvin Heller for the use of 53A Jobs Lane.

This beautiful shop is available to rent! If you are interested please contact Karen Bellantoni at 212-331-0116 or email karen.bellantoni@ngkf.com.
