Join author Thomas Hynes for a talk on the oyster’s outsized impact in New York City, how the bivalve shaped the city, and how oysters might be the city’s best chance at a clean and healthy tomorrow. The oyster plays a starring role in New York City’s history, informing not just the city’s menus but also its ecology. When Henry Hudson arrived in New York Harbor, there were more than 220,000 acres of oyster beds below the water. The native Lenape people introduced European colonists to oysters as food and the bivalves quickly became a staple of the New York diet. New Yorkers loved oysters so much, their cravings for them nearly wiped them from our waters, but the bivalves may yet have a hand in the city’s future as various organizations work to boost their population. After Thomas’s presentation, there will be time for the Q&A. Zoom link will be emailed upon registration.
Join us for a special program with Beam Center Youth Leaders. Learn the basics of Light Painting and create a DIY light painting at home!
The practice of Light Painting, or Light Drawing, dates back to the late 1880s and was initially used to track human motion. Light painting has since become a popular alternative photography method that can produce unique images. Using light sources at home, participants will learn to manipulate light to create unique works of art.
Did you ever listen to a song written by one of the greats and hear a phrase that made you say, “did I just hear what I think I heard?” In this fun and tuneful show, Mark Nadler explores the theory that Cole Porter, Noel Coward, Larry Hart, and Billy Strayhorn meant what you think they meant when they wrote provocative, gay-sounding phrases in their lyrics.
Mark Nadler is an internationally acclaimed singer, pianist, tap-dancer, and comedian. He is the recipient of the 2015 Broadway World Editor’s Choice Award for Entertainer of the Year. His off-Broadway hit, I’m a Stranger Here Myself has been honored with the 2013 Nightlife Award and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and two Broadway World Awards. The show was presented at The Adelaide Cabaret Festival in Adelaide, Australia, where it was nominated for the prestigious Helpmann Award. Additionally, Mark Nadler’s Broadway Hootenanny performed at Adelaide Festival for several years in a row. Mr. Nadler has performed at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops Orchestra and has been a soloist with the Baltimore Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Oregon Symphony, National Arts Centre Symphony in Ottawa, and others.
