DNA of Water
Mar 26 @ 10:00 AM – Sep 17 @ 5:00 PM

Snug Harbor Cultural Center
Main Hall- Building C
Opening Reception: March 26, 3:00 PM-6:00 PM
Exhibit open from March 26, 2017-September 17, 2017
Wednesday-Sunday, 10:00 AM-5:00 PM

The DNA of Water exhibition considers how water has traditionally and simultaneously functioned as border, passageway, and gateway. Using Thomas More’s 1516 book, Utopia, as a jumping off point, curator Sasha Dees invites audiences to ask the questions: How do we as a people relate to our history, our present and future? Are we willing to question history and adapt in the present? Are we willing and able to continuously make the needed changes and reform ourselves to be equipped for the future?

Curated by Sasha Dees, featuring the work of Deborah Jack, Petri Saarikko, Sasha Huber and Simone Bennett.

This project is in part made possible by: Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation, Arts Promotion Centre Finland & VISEK (for Sasha Huber & Petri Saarikko), Mondriaan Foundation (for the work by Simone Bennett).

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown (In the Wings Productions)
Mar 26 @ 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in this classic  musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy, piano prodigy Schroeder, perfectionist Sally, blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy, and the “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. This show has the sweet and joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.

All performances held at Snug Harbor Cultural Center’s Music Hall, Building T.
