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.

“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.

Join SummerStage as we head to the South Bronx, the birthplace of Hip-Hop to celebrate the connection between graffiti art and the media it inspires. THE POINT CDC and City Lore have joined us to present a full day of music, film screenings, panel discussions and live painting!

This third part of THE POINT CDC and City Lore’s "Mambo to Hip-Hop" series takes a closer look at the connection between the modern graffiti movement and the media that has proliferated from this movement. From the photographs and documentary films depicting the artists and styles of the early days of Hip-Hop, to the current use of new media and big budget films to document the scene; graffiti and film are inextricably tied together in creating the global phenomenon that exists today and providing artists of various genres a voice. The panel discussion will include famed aerosol art collective, TATS Cru and early writer Crash One addressing the history and future of both of these artistic movement moderated by acclaimed hip hop journalist Bonz Malone. Screenings of films throughout the afternoon, including a showing of the feature length TATS Cru documentary “The Mural Kings,” will be accompanied by live painting and live DJ sets throughout the day by DJ FredOnes.

THE POINT CDC’s Arts and Cultural Programs are dedicated to the cultivation and preservation of South Bronx culture and making the arts economically and geographically accessible to Hunts Point residents. The South Bronx has been an exporter of art forms that have shaped global culture.

Yearn for adventure? Join the Freshkills Park Staff as we hike areas we are developing into new parkland on Staten Island. This hike will bring you behind the scenes into natural sections of the park typically restricted from public access to introduce you to the beauty of the hills and creeks in Freshkills Park. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about the park development while getting out in nature and staying in shape.

Limited space available. Register by email.

At 2,200 acres, Freshkills Park will be almost three times the size of Central Park and the largest park developed in New York City in over 100 years. The transformation of what was formerly the world’s largest landfill into a productive and beautiful cultural destination will make the park a symbol of renewal and an expression of how our society can restore balance to its landscape.

Hiking programs feature intensity levels ranging from light (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths), moderate (longer, faster paced hikes on rugged terrain), to vigorous (long distance, with hills and rugged terrain). This hike includes elevations with gravel and dirt terrain. For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water, sunscreen, bugspray and a light snack.

<![CDATA[SOLD OUT: Bowery Presents: She & Him / Camera Obscura]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/07/06/bowery-presents-she-him-camera-obscura http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/07/06/bowery-presents-she-him-camera-obscura Date: July 6, 2013

She & Him consists of the pairing of Zooey Deschanel and M.Ward. For 6 years, She & Him have been taking the indie world by storm as they churn out hits for the world to hear. This unlikely pairing has had their music skyrocket to the top of “The Billboard 200,” reaching as high as #1 for “Top Independent Albums” for 2011 and 2012. The success of She & Him’s first album, Volume One, came out of left field, as Deschanel and Ward’s seemingly unlikely pairing—the effervescent actress-singer and the sought-after yet self-effacing guitarist—proved to sound absolutely right. While Deschanel writes the music for the duo, and Ward produces and arranges the pieces, both artists share a great love for incorporating harmonies in all of their tracks.

With John Peel as an early champion, Glasgow’s Camera Obscura are fondly regarded by many as one of the UK’s finest acts; having over the years built up a dedicated following with must-have records and tours throughout Europe, USA, Mexico, Australia and South East Asia. Their 2006 album, Let’s Get Out of This Country (2006), was to prove pivotal for the band, taking them out of the shadows and to long-deserved new heights. “You might not find heartache as enchanting as this anywhere else,” stated All Music Guide in a familiar glowing review.

Theophilius London, “who seems to have studied his Prince, his Andre 3000, and, especially and perhaps most surprisingly, his PM Dawn,” (Philadelphia Inquirer) comes off “like a boastful, macho Janelle Monáe [who] attempts to bridge the 1950s and the 2050s.” (Details) With the French-Cameroonian sisters Les Nubians, whose “unique Afropean soul lifts the spirit and moves the feet,” (USA Today) and the reduction stutter funk of Brooklyn’s Aabaraki.
