American Folk Art Museum

American Weathervanes: The Art of the Winds is the first exhibition in more than four decades to highlight the beauty, historical significance, and technical virtuosity of American vanes fashioned between the late seventeenth and early twentieth centuries.

The exhibition includes the graceful figure of Fame blowing a trumpet and standing en pointe like a celestial ballerina, attributed to well-known manufactory E.G. Washburne & Co. in New York City, a Dove of Peace designed by George Washington for his home in Mount Vernon; and an eagle possibly made in the foundry of revolutionary patrior Paul Revere. In addition to weathervanes, the exhibiton will also include beautifully articuated wood sculptures by Harry Leach that functioned as patterns for weathevane molds for the Cushing & White and L.W. & Sons manufactories in Waltham, MA., watercolors of historic weathervanes painted for the Index of American Design, and rare archival materials that illuminate the development of the weathervane in the United States of America.


A full-color, illustrated, 224-page publication accompanies the exhibition, published by Rizzoli International Publications in association with the American Folk Art Museum. Authored by exhibition curator Robert Shaw, the book includes contributions by Jason T. Busch and Jennifer Mass, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Cultural Heritage Science at the Bard Graduate Center. This seminal scholarly work will have a significant impact on our understanding of this early American sculptural art form, serving as the authoritative text on American weathervanes for generations to come.


Robert Shaw is the guest curator of American Weathervanes. Emelie Gevalt is the coordinating curator of the exhibition.

Pranayama is the art of conscious, controlled breathing. When you slow your breath, you slow your thoughts, balance your emotions and settle the mind. Pranayama affects our autonomic nervous system which controls our heartbeat, respiration, digestion and more. Join Senior Planet instructor, Cas, to practice pranayama to help you become less emotionally reactive and more aware and present.

Museum of Arts and Design

Craft was once at the margins of the art world, but no longer. Today it is front and center in art galleries, museums, and fairs, widely recognized for its expressive potential and cultural significance. Assembled from the eclectic richness of MAD’s permanent collection, Craft Front & Center brings together more than 70 iconic and lesser-known works to highlight key thematic touchpoints in craft’s history that have brought us to this moment. Challenging traditional thinking of craft as separate from fine art, the exhibition reveals the field's deep engagement in art’s major movements, such as Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and Postmodernism, while also launching its own revolutions, particularly the elevation of women and people of color as significant artists.

The Museum of Arts and Design collection comprises over 3,000 artworks in clay, fiber, glass, metal, and wood, dating from the post-war studio craft movement through to contemporary art and design. With an aim to subvert traditional hierarchies in the arts, the collection advocates for the central role of craft in art and society. Toward that end, Craft Front & Center is organized into eight themes exploring craft’s impact. Each section is punctuated with pivotal and rarely seen works from iconic makers, such as Betty Woodman, Marvin Lipofsky, and Magdalena Abakanowicz. The exhibition also casts a fresh eye on craft’s pioneers; celebrating Olga de Amaral, Charles Loloma, Patti Warashina, and others who pushed the boundaries of materials and sought more inclusive sources of inspiration. Showcasing the diversity and expressive power of the handmade as only MAD can, the exhibition affirms craft as one of the most exciting spaces for experimentation and wonder in art today.

Shakespeare’s plays have been performed for 400 years, and they continue to be transformed by actors, directors and diverse communities who make the plays their own. As New York City comes back from Covid, our first session in this new series will highlight the astonishing history of Shakespeare performances in NYC. The following sessions will focus on stagings of three plays – ​The Taming of the Shrew, Julius Caesar and Much Ado About Nothing, which all had seminal performances at New York’s Shakespeare in the Park, along with other legendary productions.

The Memory of Water is a full-length creative collaboration between beat-based experimental artist Ravish Momin, performing as Sunken Cages with guest dancer Ishita Mili, and composer/performer Migiwa “Miggy” Miyajima and quintet. Memory addresses the power of oceans, with visuals depicting how water shapes our lives and music that evokes memories of the Japanese waters and the tenacious resiliency of the 2011 tsunami survivors. The performance culminates with the world premiere of “The Golden Miracles,” composed by Miyajima, featuring a blending of Sunken Cages' beguiling visual and electronic textures alongside the acoustics of Miyajima’s ensemble. “Miracles” is a dedication to all American immigrants, the ancestors of today’s New Yorkers, who came here from beyond our immediate waters. 

Seats are available via the TodayTix Lottery. Enter for a chance to win a FREE pod (two seats) starting two weeks before the show. Entries close three days before a performance at 12:59 pm ET. Enter the Lottery through the TodayTix app or by calling Lincoln Center Guest Services at 212-875-5456.
