Join NYC Parks and La Isla Bonita Festival to celebrate the opening of Lina Montoya's public artwork Mariposas Lamps. Inspired by Gabriel García Márquez’s Cien Años de Soledad, Montoya’s illuminated sculptures will redefine the monarch butterfly as an icon of migration and freedom. This work will be part of the series La Isla Bonita, a beautification project that seeks to transform public spaces through public art and community engagement.

This exhibition is made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly visible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.

SeaGlass Carousel at The Battery is excited to announce Live at SeaGlass Music Festival 2017, a free outdoor music festival on Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June 24.

Created by NY Carousel Entertainment, the operators of SeaGlass, and curated by bassist/composer Michael Bates, and drummer/composer Rob Garcia, Live at SeaGlass brings together great bands, original music, the magical SeaGlass Carousel all at The Battery, the exquisite park overlooking the New York harbor.

Performer/Magician, Todd Robins will be emceeing the festival and SeaGlass Carousel riders will have the unique experience of riding SeaGlass to beautiful live music.

Live at SeaGlass Music Festival - Saturday, June 24, 2017
Music by young people - Brooklyn Youth Music Project: Full orchestra and two jazz ensembles, plus youth rock band.

Four critically acclaimed bands:

5:00 p.m. – YeraSon
YeraSon, lead by Grammy-winning Violinist Yrving Yeras, is a New York based Cuban Orquesta Charanga with a multinational flair. YeraSon Orquesta Charanga electrifies with old-school Cuban music with a distinctly modern New York twist. The bands unique sound is at once elegant and energetic with a contagious rhythm that attracts dancing and listening crowds alike. YeraSon is a treat for both the ears and the feet!

6:15 p.m. - Mamie Minch & Tamar Korn
Mamie Minch is one of the youngest old-school blues guitarists and singers you've heard. She sings and plays songs of her own devising that sound like they've been stored in her old National guitar for decades. Raised on the music of John Hurt, Rev. Davis and Memphis Minnie, she can sometimes sound like her predecessors, but don't mistake her for a revivalist- she is most definitely a product of her own time.

7:30 p.m. - Banda de los Muertos
A Mexican Brass Band from Brooklyn led by Oscar Noriega and Jacob Garchik. This band attracts audiences made up of brass aficionados and Mexican immigrants – as well as kudos from the mother of all Mexican Brass Bands: Banda el Recodo.

8:45 p.m. - Soul Understated
Led by singer/songwriter Mavis ‘SWAN’ Poole and the powerful yet melodic drummer Jeremy ‘BEAN’ Clemons, Soul Understated is one of the rarest discoveries in music since Motown. The influences on their music are overwhelming and pleasurable all at once. With elements from EWF to Ella Fitzgerald, Donny Hathaway to Curtis Mayfield, and Sarah Vaughn to Count Basie, and even Hip-hop infused, their music spans across all genres.

On the Town
“New York, New York it’s a wonderful (helluva) town.” So goes the song in this glorious Technicolor musical that follows three sailors on leave in the Big Apple. Frank Sinatra, Jules Munshin and Gene Kelly meet up with Ann Miller, Betty Garrett and Vera-Ellen after jumping ship at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Stanley Donen (and Kelly) directed this adaptation of the successful Broadway hit with book, lyrics and music by Betty Comden, Adolph Green and Leonard Bernstein. Much was filmed on location (a first for Hollywood musicals) where “the Bronx is up, and the Battery’s down.” (1949) 98 MIN (NR)(WARNER BROS.)

LA CEREMONIE
Directed by Claude Chabrol
With Isabelle Huppert, Sandrine Bonnaire, Jacqueline Bisset
1995 | Crime-Drama | 1h52 | France | Janus Films

When Catherine Lelievre hires rigid, taciturn Sophie, she thinks she has found the perfect housekeeper for her family’s remote mansion in Brittany. But, detached and automated, Sophie displays odd behavior that becomes inexplicably disturbing. When she becomes friends with the impertinent, outspoken busybody Jeanne who runs the post office, the tension between Sophie and her employers increases.

Bosley Crowther of the New York Times called this Billy Wilder winner “the most delightful comedy-romance in years.” The contemporary fairy tale finds the poor chauffeur’s daughter (Audrey Hepburn) pursued by the two sons (Humphrey Bogart, William Holden) of her father’s rich Long Island employer. This is after she returns elegantly from a couple of years in Paris where she has learned to make an omelet and to wear gorgeous clothes. Edith Head won an Oscar for the costumes, though an unaccredited Givenchy designed Audrey’s chic outfits. (1954) 113 MIN. (NR) (PARAMOUNT)

The whimsical and imaginative Stéphane has a mundane job at a calendar company in Paris and wishes for a more creative outlet. He becomes enamored of his neighbor, Stéphanie, but the relationship is threatened by the constant seepage of his fantasy life into his real world.

Stéphane, un joven diseñador tímido e introvertido, tiene una imaginación tan grande que a veces se impone al mundo real. Su madre lo convence de mudarse a París y le ofrece un empleo. La decepción es grande cuando se encuentra con un trabajo rutinario, pero se desvanece cuando se enamora de su vecina Stéphanie. La relación se ve amenazada por la constante infiltración del mundo fantástico de Stéphane en el mundo real.

Join us as we kick off the Bronx River Alliance paddling season with a CONSUMATA concert that will follow along the 5-mile journey.

More on the band: CONSUMATA [KON-SU-MAH-TAH]

Brooklyn, NY based band to make you dance.Cumbia-punk, ska-funk, boss-a-rengue, dubbed out tarantellas. Using CUT-UPS (a technique hearkening
back to the Dadaists and Beat Poets), Consumata hones in on the non-linear aspects of musical construction. Audible insurrection. Collaging sounds by means of serendipity, the result is organic and unpredictable. Maybe you'll step into a frenzied moshpit,maybe you'll hear your grandparents' folk songs ripping through the speakers. Where-ever you find yourself, it will be wild.

Wall Street
“Greed is good” is the mantra of ruthless corporate raider Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas). Climbing the ladder of success is ambitious young broker Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen), who is taken under Gekko’s wing. Oliver Stone directed this drama of high finance, buying and selling, insider trading and securities fraud as a follow-up to the celebrated Platoon. A bullish Douglas won an Oscar as Best Actor for his effort, while Daryl Hannah won a Razzie as Worst Supporting Actress. The market crash of Black Monday (October 19, 1987) was only a few months before the film’s opening. (1987) 126 MIN. (R) (FOX)

The Hustler
Nominated for 9 Oscars, this dark and gritty tale of pool hall sharks won for Cinematography and Art Direction. Fast Eddie (Paul Newman) is a hungry, small-time upstart with dreams of beating the unbeatable Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason), a living legend and the reigning champion of major league pool. Eddie has a lot to learn, but the lessons come with a price. George C. Scott, as a shady big-time gambler, refused his nomination for Best Supporting Actor, but Gleason gladly accepted his. Newman won an Oscar of his own years later when he played Fast Eddie again in The Color of Money. (1961) 134 MIN. (NR) (FOX)

Visit Socrates Sculpture Park to take in a free outdoor film.

The Challenge (Qatar/France/Italy)
Directed by Yuri Ancarani; 2016, 65 mins.

If you have it, spend it: Italian artist Yuri Ancarani’s visually striking documentary enters the surreal world of wealthy Qatari sheikhs who moonlight as amateur falconers, with no expenses spared along the way. The Challenge follows these men through the rituals that define their lives: perilously racing blacked-out SUVs up and down sand dunes; sharing communal meals; taking their Ferraris out for a spin with their pet cheetahs riding shotgun; and much more. Ancarani’s film is a sly meditation on the collective pursuit of idiosyncratic desires.

Programmed by Rooftop Films.

All That Jazz
“It’s showtime, folks!” Joe Gideon (Roy Scheider) is a workaholic Broadway director and choreographer. He is also a womanizer, a heavy drinker, a chain smoker and frequent pill popper. Bob Fosse directed this jazzy, thinly-veiled autobiographical film showcasing his very own personal demons. Not surprisingly, Gideon (like Fosse) eventually finds himself in a life-or-death struggle as he goes under the knife for open-heart surgery. Nominated for nine Oscars, All That Jazz won four (Score, Art Direction, Costumes, Editing). If you can survive it, there’s no business-like show business. (1979) 123 MIN. (R) (FOX)

North by Northwest
Alfred Hitchcock was at the top of his game when he directed Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint in this sophisticated cross-country thriller. Bachelor Grant is a dapper, Madison Avenue ad executive who becomes a victim of mistaken identity and is soon on the run for his life. Saint’s a mysterious, blonde seductress who seems more than eager to help out the handsome fugitive. Classic set pieces play out at the U.N. headquarters and in an Indiana cornfield. The breathless climax finds Grant and Saint dangling from a presidential profile on Mt. Rushmore. (1959) 136 MIN. (NR) (WARNER BROS.)

Dirty Dancing
In the summer of ’63, seventeen-year-old Baby (Jennifer Grey) goes on vacation with her family to a resort in the Catskills. Baby is bored until she meets hunky professional dancer Johnny (Patrick Swayze). Before you can say “Dancing with the Stars,” he is teaching her some pelvic moves and she is taking the place of his dance partner who has turned up pregnant. Needless to say, Baby’s daddy does not approve of the couple’s suggestive gyrations. North Carolina and Virginia stand in for the upstate New York locations in this surprise hit. Like Baby, you’ll have the time of your life. (1987) 100 MIN. (PG-13) (LIONSGATE)
