The annual Emerging Artist Fellowship (EAF) Exhibition is a cornerstone of Socrates Sculpture Park’s visual arts programming and is widely acclaimed for the ambition, breadth, and innovation of the works on view. Featuring fifteen artists, EAF14 is a survey of the compelling and diverse state of sculpture today.

Each EAF14 artist has engaged with the larger narrative of public space in a dynamic and daring way, building upon Socrates Sculpture Park’s goal to present socially aware, inspiring art in the public realm. EAF14 artists were selected through a highly competitive process that attracted a broad field of nearly 300 candidates, reviewed by the park’s curatorial advisors Anne Barlow (Executive Director, Art in General) and Joe Sheftel (Joe Sheftel Gallery, New York). Selected EAF14 artists were awarded a 2014 Emerging Artist Fellowship, including 24/7 access to the park’s outdoor studio and facilities, as well as the financial, technical, and curatorial support to realize his or her most ambitious work possible.

The Arts, Culture & Fun series presents The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

- Art Exhibit March 2 - 31, 2015

- Film Screening March 28, 2015

On January 16, 1936 the deaths of two famous men were printed on the front page of the Peekskill Evening Star. The two men shared the name Hamilton Fish. One was a notorious killer Hamilton "Albert" Fish and the other, Hamilton Fish II, a beloved statesman. This coincidence was discovered by artist Rachel Mason who was inspired to create an opera and feature film called The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

Scenes in the film were shot at historic sites in New York State and amazingly, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center was completed in 1936, the same year that the two men died. To coincide with the film's New York City debut which will happen in March 2015, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center will present a special exhibition of Mason's storyboard sketches, props, paintings and research.

In addition to the exhibition, the center will host a screening on Saturday, March 28 at 3:00 p.m.

Start time: 9:00 am

End time: 9:00 pm

The relaxation technique, somewhat like yoga, makes you feel as though you are floating on water.

You may experience yourself drifting in and out of sleep during the gentle and quiet sessions. You will gain a deeper sense of well-being and relaxation, with a better understanding of your body and how it feels. If you suffer migraines or back or neck pain, the instructor will advice you on the specific technique to alleviate the area of concern.

Mats and materials are provided. Come in loose and comfortable pants and clothing. Most people remove their shoes.

Get ready to have an amazing experience. This is a very popular class.

NYC Parks is pleased to present the exhibition: “Native Ensemble: Artists Chronicle Staten Island’s Natural Spaces”, featuring local Staten Island artists that will run from February 13 – March 29, 2015, with an opening reception on Thursday, February 12th from 7-9 p.m. in the Lenape Gallery at the Conference House Park Visitor Center. The exhibition is curated by Sarah Yuster.

The eight artists featured in the show: David DiLillo, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Gail Middleton, Bill Murphy, Kristi Pfister, Melissa West and Sarah Yuster will present inspired 2-D and 3-D works created in a variety of art mediums that explore Staten Island’s natural elements and open spaces in conventional and unconventional techniques.

The Arts, Culture & Fun series presents The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

- Art Exhibit March 2 - 31, 2015

- Film Screening March 28, 2015

On January 16, 1936 the deaths of two famous men were printed on the front page of the Peekskill Evening Star. The two men shared the name Hamilton Fish. One was a notorious killer Hamilton "Albert" Fish and the other, Hamilton Fish II, a beloved statesman. This coincidence was discovered by artist Rachel Mason who was inspired to create an opera and feature film called The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

Scenes in the film were shot at historic sites in New York State and amazingly, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center was completed in 1936, the same year that the two men died. To coincide with the film's New York City debut which will happen in March 2015, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center will present a special exhibition of Mason's storyboard sketches, props, paintings and research.

In addition to the exhibition, the center will host a screening on Saturday, March 28 at 3:00 p.m.

Start time: 9:00 am

End time: 4:00 pm

The annual Emerging Artist Fellowship (EAF) Exhibition is a cornerstone of Socrates Sculpture Park’s visual arts programming and is widely acclaimed for the ambition, breadth, and innovation of the works on view. Featuring fifteen artists, EAF14 is a survey of the compelling and diverse state of sculpture today.

Each EAF14 artist has engaged with the larger narrative of public space in a dynamic and daring way, building upon Socrates Sculpture Park’s goal to present socially aware, inspiring art in the public realm. EAF14 artists were selected through a highly competitive process that attracted a broad field of nearly 300 candidates, reviewed by the park’s curatorial advisors Anne Barlow (Executive Director, Art in General) and Joe Sheftel (Joe Sheftel Gallery, New York). Selected EAF14 artists were awarded a 2014 Emerging Artist Fellowship, including 24/7 access to the park’s outdoor studio and facilities, as well as the financial, technical, and curatorial support to realize his or her most ambitious work possible.

The Arts, Culture & Fun series presents The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

- Art Exhibit March 2 - 31, 2015

- Film Screening March 28, 2015

On January 16, 1936 the deaths of two famous men were printed on the front page of the Peekskill Evening Star. The two men shared the name Hamilton Fish. One was a notorious killer Hamilton "Albert" Fish and the other, Hamilton Fish II, a beloved statesman. This coincidence was discovered by artist Rachel Mason who was inspired to create an opera and feature film called The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

Scenes in the film were shot at historic sites in New York State and amazingly, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center was completed in 1936, the same year that the two men died. To coincide with the film's New York City debut which will happen in March 2015, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center will present a special exhibition of Mason's storyboard sketches, props, paintings and research.

In addition to the exhibition, the center will host a screening on Saturday, March 28 at 3:00 p.m.

Start time: 9:00 am

End time: 9:00 pm

If you suffer migraines or back or neck pain, the instructor will advice you on the specific technique to alleviate the area of concern.

Mats and materials are provided. Come in loose and comfortable pants and clothing. Most people remove their shoes.

The Arts, Culture & Fun series presents The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

- Art Exhibit March 2 - 31, 2015

- Film Screening March 28, 2015

On January 16, 1936 the deaths of two famous men were printed on the front page of the Peekskill Evening Star. The two men shared the name Hamilton Fish. One was a notorious killer Hamilton "Albert" Fish and the other, Hamilton Fish II, a beloved statesman. This coincidence was discovered by artist Rachel Mason who was inspired to create an opera and feature film called The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

Scenes in the film were shot at historic sites in New York State and amazingly, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center was completed in 1936, the same year that the two men died. To coincide with the film's New York City debut which will happen in March 2015, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center will present a special exhibition of Mason's storyboard sketches, props, paintings and research.

In addition to the exhibition, the center will host a screening on Saturday, March 28 at 3:00 p.m.
