The Randall’s Island Park Alliance, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Made Event are pleased to present FLOW, the annual summer art exhibit along the shoreline at Randall’s Island Park in New York City. FLOW is aimed at fostering appreciation of the shoreline through artistic expression, while calling visitors to interact with and care for the Park’s island environment. Each year, FLOW features five site specific projects by participants in the Bronx Museum’s Artists in the Marketplace (AIM) program for emerging artists.

Randall’s Island Park is a unique and remarkable waterfront resource, located in the East River with views of the Queens, Bronx and Manhattan shorelines. New waterfront pathways run along the 4.5-mile shoreline, which includes almost 9 acres of restored salt marsh and freshwater wetlands. The Park also offers a track & field stadium, a golf center, a 20-court tennis center and dozens of new playing fields, as well as the Harlem River Event Site, home of Made Event’s Electric Zoo, a three-day Labor Day weekend concert event at Randall’s Island which draws local and international DJ artists and audience.

FLOW.13 – this year's third annual exhibition – will be open to the public every day from June-November, and will feature five new site-specific installations, all reflecting and encouraging interaction with the Park’s history and environment. The five installations are located along the southern shoreline of Randall's Island Park.

FLOW is made possible through support from Made Event, proud producers of The Electric Zoo Festival, NYC’s largest electronic dance music festival, held annually at Randall’s Island Park.

The FLOW exhibitions express the confluence of art, music and environment at Randall’s Island Park, in the midst of one of the world’s greatest cities.

The High Line gets a lot of hype, but it is just one example of the many ways community leaders and creative thinkers are re-imagining public space.

Stop by for the launch of this year’s Beyond the High Line, a series of free talks about adaptive reuse projects around the world. The first talk features the Reading Viaduct, a 4.7-mile-long railway traveling through Philadelphia. Beginning in 1893, the railway carried both passengers and mail to and from the Reading Terminal, in downtown Philadelphia. When the railway ceased operations in the 1980s, nature took over, covering the tracks with wild grasses and self-seeded shrubs.

Paul Levy, of Center City District, will present plans for his business improvement district’s vision of a Philadelphia destination centered around a transformed Reading Viaduct. Leah Murphy, of Interface Studio, will speak on behalf of VIADUCTgreene, an advocacy group that seeks to preserve the viaduct’s historical industrial character and existing self-seeded landscape.

This High Line Program is free and open to visitors of all ages. No RSVP required. A free reception with the speakers will follow the presentation.

The Randall’s Island Park Alliance, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Made Event are pleased to present FLOW, the annual summer art exhibit along the shoreline at Randall’s Island Park in New York City. FLOW is aimed at fostering appreciation of the shoreline through artistic expression, while calling visitors to interact with and care for the Park’s island environment. Each year, FLOW features five site specific projects by participants in the Bronx Museum’s Artists in the Marketplace (AIM) program for emerging artists.

Randall’s Island Park is a unique and remarkable waterfront resource, located in the East River with views of the Queens, Bronx and Manhattan shorelines. New waterfront pathways run along the 4.5-mile shoreline, which includes almost 9 acres of restored salt marsh and freshwater wetlands. The Park also offers a track & field stadium, a golf center, a 20-court tennis center and dozens of new playing fields, as well as the Harlem River Event Site, home of Made Event’s Electric Zoo, a three-day Labor Day weekend concert event at Randall’s Island which draws local and international DJ artists and audience.

FLOW.13 – this year's third annual exhibition – will be open to the public every day from June-November, and will feature five new site-specific installations, all reflecting and encouraging interaction with the Park’s history and environment. The five installations are located along the southern shoreline of Randall's Island Park.

FLOW is made possible through support from Made Event, proud producers of The Electric Zoo Festival, NYC’s largest electronic dance music festival, held annually at Randall’s Island Park.

The FLOW exhibitions express the confluence of art, music and environment at Randall’s Island Park, in the midst of one of the world’s greatest cities.

As a successful tropical music vocalist, the young Ramon “Moncho” Rivera has spent a lifetime singing praises to his famed uncle, Ismeal Rivera. After all, Ismeal Rivera was the reigning king of soneros of his generation, and since his passing, he's been one of the most revered figures in the history of salsa in Puerto Rico and throughout Latin America. In Mocho’s new album, Mi Regalo En Navidad, he follows in his uncle’s footsteps as he celebrates the ‘tis to be merry season just like the oldest Rivera did over 40 years ago. One of the highlights of the young Moncho Rivera’s music is that he remains faithful to his uncle’s unique and hugely popular singing style, one of the few who still does today.

The Randall’s Island Park Alliance, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Made Event are pleased to present FLOW, the annual summer art exhibit along the shoreline at Randall’s Island Park in New York City. FLOW is aimed at fostering appreciation of the shoreline through artistic expression, while calling visitors to interact with and care for the Park’s island environment. Each year, FLOW features five site specific projects by participants in the Bronx Museum’s Artists in the Marketplace (AIM) program for emerging artists.

Randall’s Island Park is a unique and remarkable waterfront resource, located in the East River with views of the Queens, Bronx and Manhattan shorelines. New waterfront pathways run along the 4.5-mile shoreline, which includes almost 9 acres of restored salt marsh and freshwater wetlands. The Park also offers a track & field stadium, a golf center, a 20-court tennis center and dozens of new playing fields, as well as the Harlem River Event Site, home of Made Event’s Electric Zoo, a three-day Labor Day weekend concert event at Randall’s Island which draws local and international DJ artists and audience.

FLOW.13 – this year's third annual exhibition – will be open to the public every day from June-November, and will feature five new site-specific installations, all reflecting and encouraging interaction with the Park’s history and environment. The five installations are located along the southern shoreline of Randall's Island Park.

FLOW is made possible through support from Made Event, proud producers of The Electric Zoo Festival, NYC’s largest electronic dance music festival, held annually at Randall’s Island Park.

The FLOW exhibitions express the confluence of art, music and environment at Randall’s Island Park, in the midst of one of the world’s greatest cities.

Little Red’s Hood is a fresh retelling of the classic “Little Red Riding Hood” tale updated with a modern sensibility that will appeal to kids. The production features a dozen, hand-made marionettes crafted by the expert puppeteers from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre.

Like many of today’s children, Little Red is a smart, young city slicker who is too focused on her smartphone to notice her surroundings. Wulfric is a misunderstood wolf with a sweet tooth. When Little Red travels from New York City to the country to deliver some cupcakes to her Grandma, she encounters a colorful cast of characters as Wulfric the Wolf tries to head her off at the pass.

Little Red’s Hood is directed by Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre’s Artistic Director Bruce Cannon and written by Liam Hurley.

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active, and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

<![CDATA[“COMEDY CENTRAL Stars Under the Stars” hosted by Gabriel Iglesias and featuring performances by Adam DeVine / John Mulaney / Jeff Ross / Amy Schumer with an Opening Set from Dan Soder]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/06/26/comedy-central-stars-under-the-stars-hosted-by-gabriel-iglesias-and-featuring-performances-by-adam-devine-anthony-jeselnik-nick-kroll-jeff-ross-amy-schumer http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/06/26/comedy-central-stars-under-the-stars-hosted-by-gabriel-iglesias-and-featuring-performances-by-adam-devine-anthony-jeselnik-nick-kroll-jeff-ross-amy-schumer Date: June 26, 2013

Gabriel Iglesias has been described as a witty, electrifying, and talented performer who has the ability to consistently deliver a uniquely hilarious comedy experience. His first two DVD specials, “Hot & Fluffy” and “I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy,” have sold well over 1 million copies. “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution“ premiered on COMEDY CENTRAL in October 2011 and stars Iglesias, who serves as host and curator of the featured comedians. For the series, Iglesias was individually nominated for a 2012 ALMA Award in the category: Favorite TV Reality, Variety, or Comedy Personality or Act. In April 2013, “Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy,” a supersized two-night world premiere, debuted on COMEDY CENTRAL.

Adam DeVine is best known for his role as “Adam DeMamp” on COMEDY CENTRAL’s hit comedy “Workaholics.” His sketch-comedy group, Mail Order Comedy, made up of DeVine, Blake Anderson, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck, has headlined sold-out shows all over the nation. All four members also star on, write and produce “Workaholics.” DeVine recently starred in the Universal comedy “Pitch Perfect” and can be seen in the upcoming cult favorite “Arrested Development” on Netflix. In addition, COMEDY CENTRAL recently announced “Adam DeVine’s House Party.” The eight episode stand-up series will spotlight 24 of DeVine’s favorite up-and-coming comedians and is slated to premiere on the channel this fall. which he takes on the latest bizarre news and pop culture happenings ripped straight from the headlines.

Since the release of his 2012 COMEDY CENTRAL broadcast and DVD/digital release of his new stand-up special “New in Town,” John Mulaney is poised to become somewhat more recognizable after being vaguely familiar to the millions who watch “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and more. A wizened comedy veteran at 30 years of age, Mulaney began his career in New York’s East Village as part of the two-man “Oh Hello Show” with comedian Nick Kroll. He has since performed everywhere from Ireland, to Australia to Grand Isle, Nebraska. He’ll kind of perform anywhere. He was named one of Variety's 10 “Comics to Watch” in 2008--the same year he began working at “Saturday Night Live” where he's since appeared as a Weekend Update correspondent and co-created such characters as “Stefon” with Bill Hader.

Jeff Ross is the host of COMEDY CENTRAL’s weekly half-hour topical series “The Burn with Jeff Ross“ and picks up where the Roasts leave off. Ross and a panel of guest comedians skewer the week’s pop culture topics in-studio, and hit the streets on the “Roaster Coaster” to take aim at “Public Enemies” like drunks, hipsters and zombie lovers. In addition, Ross has headlined the last nine COMEDY CENTRAL Roasts and roasted the likes of Roseanne, Charlie Sheen, Joan Rivers, Pamela Anderson, David Hasselhoff, and Donald Trump. As a stand-up comic, Ross has appeared on dozens of TV shows, including “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Conan,” “Last Call with Carson Daly,” “The View,” and “Real Time with Bill Maher.” He also continues to perform regularly for American men and women in uniform stationed all over the world.

Amy Schumer stars in COMEDY CENTRAL’s newest series, “Inside Amy Schumer.” Through a series of scripted vignettes, stand-up comedy, and man-on-the-street interviews, Schumer explores topics revolving around sex, relationships, and the general clusterf*ck that is life. Ten episodes begin on Tuesday, April 30 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. Schumer’s other television credits include the one-hour stand-up special, “Amy Schumer: Mostly Sex Stuff” (COMEDY CENTRAL’s second-highest rated special of 2012); one of the featured comedians on the “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Roseanne,” following her breakout performance on the “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Charlie Sheen;” and appearances in FX’s “Louie” and Season 2 of HBO’s “Girls.” In 2011, she filmed the feature “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley and “Price Check,” an independent feature opposite Parker Posey which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

In May, Dan Soder debuted his first half-hour stand-up special “Dan Soder: The Half Hour” on COMEDY CENTRAL and is a new cast member on MTV2's "Guy Code." He has also appeared on COMEDY CENTRAL’s "Live at Gotham," “Conan” and on Opie and Anthony.
