This photo exhibition includes vintage and current images of women as aviators and astronauts from fashion, television, film, pop culture and toys (e.g. Barbie and LEGO astronaut dolls), as well as new developments in space-inspired fashion (space gear/spacesuits for women).
The exhibition includes photographs of pioneering astronauts including Sally Ride, America’s first woman in space, Mae Jemison, America’s first African-American female astronaut, and Ellen Ochoa, America’s first Hispanic woman to go into space. There are also photographs of Dr. Ellen K. Baker, an astronaut who has logged more than 600 hours in space. Dr. Baker grew up in New York City and is the daughter of former Queens Borough President Claire Shulman.
Also on display are vintage and current images of female space travelers in television shows like Lost in Space and Star Trek, photographs of space-inspired fashions including Pucci’s designs for Braniff Airlines flight attendants and Chanel’s 2017 futuristic dresses, and screenshots from films like Barbarella, which starred Jane Fonda and Gravity, which starred Sandra Bullock. Curated by Julie Wosk, author of “Women and the Machine” and “My Fair Ladies: Female Robots, Androids, and Other Artificial Eves.”
Falls and fall injuries are more common than strokes and can result in serious health problems. Stepping On is a well-researched fall and injury prevention program. The free 7-week program meets for 1 1/2 hours per week. During the course of the program you will learn balance and strength training, the role of vision in helping you maintain balance, how medications can contribute to falls, ways to stay safe in your community, what to look for in safe footwear, and how to check your home for safety.
Specialists that will be meeting with you include a physical therapist, pharmacist, and vision care. Please RSVP with Ellen at 718-268-5011 ext. 160.
Stepping On is a program presented by Commonpoint Queens’ Central Queens Adult and Senior Center in partnership with Northwell Health
Eighty years ago, our borough of Queens hosted one of the most memorable events in history: The New York World’s Fair. A world weary from the Great Depression turned its hopeful eyes to an optimistic view of the “WORLD OF TOMORROW,” and thrilled to the predictions of industrial and technological marvels that an exciting future held in store.
Bayside Historical Society is honored to host a presentation by World’s Fair authority, expert, and author Bill Cotter. Join us for a trip back in time! Bill will be signing and selling copies of his book, “Images of America: The 1939-1940 New York World’s Fair.” Fun memorabilia and souvenirs will be on display!
Cost is free for BHS members and $5 for non-members. Light refreshments will be available.
