Fridays & Saturdays @ 10:30pmThe New York Neo-FuturistsOur show is an ever-changing attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes--an original concept by Greg Allen and the Neo-Futurists. The single unifying element of these plays is that they are performed from a perspective of absolute honesty. Each short play is written by a performer, honed by the ensemble, and randomly collaged with twenty-nine other plays through high energy audience participation.
Wed-Sun, February 12-March 21 @ 11:30am - 5:00pmThe Ukrainian MuseumTraditional Ukrainian kilims – flat tapestry rugs, woven on vertical or horizontal looms to produce stylized floral ornamentation or geometric patterns, respectively – are made with naturally dyed wool, yielding rich, soft hues that add to their beauty and warmth. The more than 35 prized examples are representative of centuries-old weaving traditions and attest to the arduous journey undertaken by Ukrainians escaping the ravages of war with their most cherished possessions.
