Games, performances, interactive experiments, and the great outdoors combine for a full-day science extravaganza. Installations and activities from more than 50 organizations will focus on our three themes: space, weather, and robots. There’s so much to explore: cutting-edge science experiments on the International Space Station, Mars rovers, extreme weather simulations, and robots that might someday live in your house, to name a few!


Come see "Why Can't They All Be Like Johnny Depp: Comedy Short," directed by Jeffrey Hirschberg, at the NY Shorts Fest on May 27th. The New York International Short Film Festival (NY Shorts Fest) showcases the finest short-form cinema from around the world to enthusiastic audiences in the vibrant filmmaking enclave of New York City.


It may be rainy today, but it will be gorgeous this weekend. Check out McNally Jacskon's Storytime at the Elizabeth Street Garden, and meet author Richard T. Morris; or rather, they can meet a moose pretending to be R. T. Morris; or perhaps it's really an author named Richard masquerading as a moose--which is perfect for a fabulous new book called This Is A Moose, written by Richard T. Morris and illustrated by award-winning artist Tom Lichtenheld.

Opening tonight, master stencil artist and crazy urban explorer Logan Hicks' upcoming solo show, "Love Never Saved Anything," (he's so emo) is his probably most personal yet. The new body of work includes a series of underwater paintings and old(er) urban exploration photos including the time he climbed out on the eagles on the Chrysler Building. Logan is well-known for his work as a street artist and urban explorer, seeking out and discovering places that few have seen. From abandoned subway stations to dilapidated buildings, a series of new photographs will be showcased depicting forbidden areas of the urban environment and unique vantage points


Primarily based on the relationship between the body and the execution of performance, Leftover of Endurance is a case study of the radical transformation of the social structures. It deals with notions of presence, endurance, devotion, space, time, change, movement, and choreography, questioning-among other things-social and gender hierarchies. The exhibition runs March 8th through April 12th.


Seduction. Trickery. Power. Shakespeare's best comedy, Much Ado About Nothing will be running for a three week limited engagement beginning on February 21st. Full of wit, hilarity, seduction and trickery - this classic shows how love brings out the best and worst in us. Masquerade balls and mistaken identities leave you on the edge of your seat in this timeless battle of the sexes.


On Friday, March 7th see Charles Calomiris discuss his book, "Fragile by Design," a revealing exploration of the ways that politics inevitably intrude into bank regulation. The book combines political history and economics to examine how coalitions of politicians, bankers and other interest groups form, why some endure while others are undermined and how they generate policies that determine who gets to be a banker, who has access to credit and who pays for bank bailouts and rescues.
