The enigmatic songwriter Mike Scott, “madman or genius, depending on your point of view,” (Record Collector Magazine) has explored many sounds and styles through THE WATERBOYS, his principle vehicle since 1983, but Celtic folk rock of burning intensity remains at the center. The band’s latest project is An Appointment with Mr. Yeats, music set to the words of Ireland’s greatest lyric poet. Scott’s fellow Scot ALASDAIR ROBERTS, a sometime collaborator with Will Oldham, infuses his songs “with the enduring melodies and lyrical twists of ancient folk music.” (The Guardian UK)

Watch a movie in the great outdoors. Join us for our citywide Summer Movie Series featuring family-friendly films through August. Admission is free. Please feel free to bring your own snacks and comfy chairs or blankets, as a limited number of chairs will be available.

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Bolt, the tale of a superstar TV pup (voiced by John Travolta) who gets plopped in the middle of America with seemingly no way back to the glam and glitz of Hollywood. Thanks to his starring role on a hit television show, Bolt the pooch has become a household name. But Bolt has bought into his own heroic image, now believing that he really possesses the super-canine powers of his fictional television series. When he's accidentally shipped from Hollywood to New York City, he must rely on the help from his two newfound friends -- an abandoned house cat named Mittens (voiced by Susie Essman) and a television-addicted hamster named Rhino (voice of Mark Walton) -- as he embarks on a cross-country quest to get back to his owner (and co-star), Penny (voice of Miley Cyrus).

Maurice Pialat's1972 drama, "We Won’t Grow Old Together (Nous Ne Vieillirons Pas Ensemble) " tells the story of Jean, an unpleasant, domineering man. Though he still lives with his wife, their marriage has been over for quite some time. All the while, he has been having an affair with the much-younger Catherine. The relationship is moving toward disintegration, and although Catherine resists it, alternating recriminations and reconciliations hasten their inevitable breakup.

“Women in Comics” celebrates the contributions from female creators in the sequential arts medium known as comics. Since the inception of this American Pop culture, women have always played a role as pencilers, inkers and even writers in the comic industry, but were never known because of their pseudonyms which rendered them sexless and misled the public to believe that they were males. The reasoning behind the pseudonyms was related to gaining employment as a writer or artist. Decades later, women today still are challenged to make their mark in a cartoon world overshadowed by muscles, testosterone and capes. “Women in Comics” unveils the mask of these heroine comic artists, writers, film makers, animators, characters and self publishers. “Women in Comics” is a Bronx Heroes® event and is curated by Ray Felix and Regine Sawyer.

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.

Alice Austen’s groundbreaking portfolio “Street Types of New York” from 1894, marks her as one of the earliest female street photographers who captured the changing face of the city’s working class just before the turn of the century. Today a new generation of photographers continues her legacy of documenting the ever-changing city. This exhibition includes work by: Alice Austen, Chris Arnade, Alice Attie, Dmitry Gudkov, Peter Funch, Andy Jones, Wayne Lawrence, Erica McDonald, Greg Miller, Christina Paige, Susanna Ray, Richard Renaldi, Ruddy Roye, Geordie Wood, and AnRong Xu.
The New Street Types draws connections from early street portraiture like that of Alice Austen (1866-1952) to contemporary image-makers. The artists selected for the exhibition work in a similar style to Austen, often employing large format photography to create portraits of New York City’s diverse communities and subcultures – including the outer fringes of the expanding city like the Rockaways and Orchard Beach. Some of the artists conceptualize themes in portrait typologies and use social media to communicate online, while artists like Peter Funch take the traditional street portrait a step further, creating digital tableaus to capture life on the streets and see it anew. Photographer Ruddy Roye utilizes Instagram to create his images - sharing them in a spontaneous and wide-reaching way Austen could have never imagined.
In addition to the contemporary images, Alice Austen’s rare and fascinating “Street Types” portfolio, produced c.1896 by the Albertype Company, will be on display. The show examines Austen’s intentions behind the portfolio of portraits and leaves the viewer to ponder her reasoning for the project – a question that was left unanswered at the time of her death in 1952.
The Alice Austen House is handicapp accessible with a wheelchair ramp in the rear of the house.

Alice Austen’s groundbreaking portfolio “Street Types of New York” from 1894, marks her as one of the earliest female street photographers who captured the changing face of the city’s working class just before the turn of the century. Today a new generation of photographers continues her legacy of documenting the ever-changing city. This exhibition includes work by: Alice Austen, Chris Arnade, Alice Attie, Dmitry Gudkov, Peter Funch, Andy Jones, Wayne Lawrence, Erica McDonald, Greg Miller, Christina Paige, Susanna Ray, Richard Renaldi, Ruddy Roye, Geordie Wood, and AnRong Xu.
The New Street Types draws connections from early street portraiture like that of Alice Austen (1866-1952) to contemporary image-makers. The artists selected for the exhibition work in a similar style to Austen, often employing large format photography to create portraits of New York City’s diverse communities and subcultures – including the outer fringes of the expanding city like the Rockaways and Orchard Beach. Some of the artists conceptualize themes in portrait typologies and use social media to communicate online, while artists like Peter Funch take the traditional street portrait a step further, creating digital tableaus to capture life on the streets and see it anew. Photographer Ruddy Roye utilizes Instagram to create his images - sharing them in a spontaneous and wide-reaching way Austen could have never imagined.
In addition to the contemporary images, Alice Austen’s rare and fascinating “Street Types” portfolio, produced c.1896 by the Albertype Company, will be on display. The show examines Austen’s intentions behind the portfolio of portraits and leaves the viewer to ponder her reasoning for the project – a question that was left unanswered at the time of her death in 1952.

Join SummerStage as we celebrate the new generation of musicians making a mark on the Brazilian music scene with up and coming Brazilian Hip-Hop artist Emicida and Gaby Amarantos, in her New York City-and US premiere, as well as one of Brazil’s most iconic Hip-Hop/Rock bands, Planet Hemp.

Planet Hemp first hit the Brazilian music scene in 1993 as a groundbreaking rap duo with founding members Marcelo D2 and Skunk. Soon after, musicians Rafael, Bacalhau and Formigão joined the group, fusing the group’s Rap roots with Rock, Psychedelia, and Hardcore. The band’s reputation grew among the youth culture for their energetic and aggressive performances. The death in 1994 of of band member Skunk lead to a temporary dissolution of the group, though he was replaced by BNegão. Their gold-selling CD Usuário featured hits such as “Mantenha o Respeito” and “Legalize Já,” and was followed up by the platinum-selling, Os Cães Ladram Mas a Caravana Não Pára.

Born and raised in Brazil, Gaby Amarantos grew up surrounded by music. The “Tecnobrega” queen’s musical style is deeply influenced by the sounds of her neighborhood where she was born, where everything is played at the same time. Technobrega fuses together Techno music with brega, which refers to “cheesy” romantic music. Paul Lester from The Guardian describes Amarantos’ sound: “Her music sounds…like a mashup of 90s Euro rave, Cumbia, and the kind of Hispanic Electro-Pop you hear in discos on holiday when you're out of your mind on budget cocktails.” Her latest album, Treme, was released in 2012.

Hailing from Sao Paulo, Brasil, Emicida began his career in 2006 when he sang his first rhymes at freestyle battles and underground parties throughout the city. In 2009, Emicida released, independently distributed, and sold more than 10,000 copies of his first mixtape. In 2010, the rapper released two mixtapes, which helped him become one of the leading names of the new Brazilian Hip-Hop generation. Emicida made his international debut in April, 2011 at the Coachella Festival. That same year, he was invited to perform at two of the major Brazilian music festivals, Rock in Rio and SWU, and went on to win the “Act of the Year” award from the MTV Video Music Brazil Awards. In 2012, Emicida released three hit singles: “Trouble”, “Zica, Go There”, and “Finger On,” further solidifying his prominent position in the Brazilian Hip-Hop world.

DJ Greg Caz, best known as one half of the Brazilian Beat Brooklyn team, is a New York City-based DJ with a wide eclectic range. Although best known for the Brazilian music expertise which fueled his weekly Sunday night party at Brooklyn's defunct Black Betty for 8 years and continues to rock Nublu in the East Village alongside Forró In The Dark, DJ Greg Caz also plays the full gamut of rare grooves, Funk, R&B, Jazz, Rock, Psych, Reggae & Rock Steady, Latin & boogaloo, Cuban, loungy soundtrack music, sunshine pop and soft-psych and much more. Having released a number of mix CDs and compilations over the years, DJ Greg Caz travels constantly bringing his eclectic unpredictability to both dance floors and lounges worldwide.

Of The Lone Bellow, NPR said: “The world of acoustic music is about to get a new household name.” Joining them are revered indie Americana outfit The Low Anthem, sporting a reconfigured lineup and new take on their timeless sound, and the Arkansas-born singer-songwriter producer and one-man record label Joe Purdy, who creates “gorgeous, beautifully-rendered acoustic-based folk songs—pop music with a gently-rounded edge.” (Pop Matters)

Watch a movie in the great outdoors! Join us for our citywide Summer Movie Series featuring family-friendly films through August. Admission is free! Please feel free to bring your own snacks and comfy chairs or blankets, as a limited number of chairs will be available.

In Wreck-It Ralph, Ralph (John C. Reilly) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer), the "good guy" star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he's tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he's got what it takes to be a hero. On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero's Duty. But it's the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it's too late?

The house is a simple modular space with a rainwater-collecting butterfly roof, and wall panels inscribed with text and information from William Powers’ book “12x12” which details his experience living in the structure.
