Coming Up: Artists’ Studios, Occupy Teach-In, Kenny Loggins

“Council Member Margaret Chin, Chair, Committee on Lower Manhattan Redevelopment, will join Council Member James Vacca, Chair, Committee on Transportation, on the issue of construction coordination in Lower Manhattan. 250 Broadway, 14th Floor Committee Room, 1:30 p.m.”

“Mad About Art + Design,” a juried show, is at the McNeill Art Group Tribeca Project Space, with an open house on Saturday, May 5, and Sunday, May 6, from 11 a.m.–5 p.m.” (Pictured at top: A grid of work by participating artists.)

As part of the Tribeca Open Artists Studio Tour (Apr. 27–30), the New York Academy of Art is opening its MFA students’ studios from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.—it’s sort of like the recent Tribeca Ball, but without the celebrities, booze, and fashion.

“Occupy: The Next Steps, A Teach-in at Trinity Wall Street Featuring Author Joyce Carol Oates, Psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton, Professor James W. Jones, Historian Blanche Wiesen Cook, Journalist James Carroll, The Rev. Mark Bozzuti-Jones and The Rev. Dr. James H. Cooper. When Occupy Wall Street began in Lower Manhattan last September, no one could have foreseen that it would spark analogous movements throughout the country, in much of Europe, and elsewhere in the world. Occupy is no longer a piece of real estate, but a moral space in the political landscape. It is, perhaps, the most important social movement since the Civil Rights and antiwar movements of the 1950s and 60s.” I wonder. “On Tuesday, May 1 from 2-5 p.m., Trinity Wall Street will hold a teach-in—part conference, part spiritual renewal, and part rally—at Trinity Church (Broadway at Wall Street), and tread into this moral terrain. Over three hours, a series of brief talks/sermons/exhortations and musical interludes will seek to inspire and offer leadership ideas for the future of the Occupy movement.”
