More Art premieres NYsferatu: Symphony of a Century by Andrea Mastrovito, a spectacular, hand-animated, silent film that combines music and community engagement to create a powerful and poignant statement about the horrors of the unknown and the inspiring search for liberty.

Resetting Friedrich W. Murnau’s classic 1922 film Nosferatu in contemporary New York City, Mastrovito and his team of 12 artists have created over 35,000 original drawings to replicate the beautifully eerie flickering shutter effect of early cinema. The re-imagined storyline and title cards of NYsferatu were made in collaboration with recent immigrants and English-as-new-language learners.

Musical improvisation by CUP. Featuring Nels Cline of Wilco & Yuka C. Honda of Cibo Matto

The movie starts at dusk, generally around 7:30 p.m. Film runs 65 mins.

The Manhattan Chamber Players is a vibrant ensemble comprised of rising stars on the music scene, many top prize winners of prestigious competitions including Banff, Naumburg, and Queen Elisabeth. Strad Magazine describes their performance as “intensely wrought and burnished.” In addition to opening the 2017–18 concert series at Wave Hill, the group opens the season for Bethel Woods, the Red Bank Chamber Music Society and returns for a second engagement at the Kaufman Music Center. The Armor Hall program, a concert with one intermission, will include chamber works by Strauss, Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky’s sentimental Souvenir de Florence, imbued with glorious and fiery Russian folk-like melodies.

Celebrating 50 Years of Public Art in NYC Parks]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2017/10/21/its-happening-celebrating-50-years-of-public-art-in-nyc-parks http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2017/10/21/its-happening-celebrating-50-years-of-public-art-in-nyc-parks Date: October 21, 2017

This year NYC Parks is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its Art in the Parks program. Since its creation in 1967, Art in the Parks has featured over 2,000 works of art. On Saturday, October 21, NYC Parks is transforming Central Park into a stage, museum, and art studio for a free day of public art to celebrate this milestone. Art lovers, families, and park-goers will be delighted by free art exhibits, performances, and hands-on art workshops in Central Park’s beautiful East Pinetum field.

As NYC Parks’ public art program took shape in the 1960s, artistic events called “happenings” popped up in parks across the city. Blurring the line between art and everyday life, these fleeting performances combined sculpture, music, theater, dance, and poetry. They varied in size and sophistication, but always relied on audience participation.

NYC Parks’ 50th anniversary celebration "It’s Happening!" captures the same creative spirit with dynamic public artworks, hands-on workshops, and performances.
