  • “JOHN FOXELL: MEMENTO MORI,” AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING THE ART AND LIFE OF A LOCAL LEGEND

    January 24, 2019  12:00 pm - April 27, 2019  7:00 pm
    ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts, 7 Navy Pier Ct, Staten Island, NY 10304, USA

    Beloved by local residents for decades prior to his December 2016 death, Foxell was known as “the unofficial mayor of Port Richmond.” On display at the arts council’s ArtSpace gallery will be Foxell’s assemblages and collage-based works, many of which reflect or satirize politics on Staten Island, as well as selected poetry, writings, film, and interviews by and with the artist. The exhibit will also include photographs of Foxell’s home that were taken by Time magazine Editor-at-Large Paul Moakley and a portrait of the artist that was painted by Robert Bunkin, a figurative painter and former curator at the Staten Island Museum.

    Categorized as outsider art, Foxell’s assemblages are made from found objects such as children’s dolls and toys, buttons, action figures, plastic (and real) skulls, Asian shrines, and African figurines. Photographs and headlines cut from local newspapers make the artist’s point of view known in his more political collage-based pieces and are enlisted as titles or focal points in his assemblages, shedding some light on the intent behind his juxtapositions. Many works reflect a fascination with the dark and macabre. Others seem to mirror, and critique, pop culture, mass consumerism, and current politics. Still others explore varying states of mental health. The works were created after the events of 9/11, which Foxell witnessed firsthand in lower Manhattan.

    Exhibit will run through April 27, 2019.

    ArtSpace Gallery Hours are:
    Thursday & Friday: 2pm – 7pm
    Saturdays: 12pm – 5pm

     

  • Paul Campbell, Selected Works 1999-2019

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    This exhibition surveys the work of NYC-based painter Paul Campbell from 1999-2019, with an emphasis on new work. Since 1998, Campbell has used remote control toys, spiky plastic balls, string, GPS tracks, and other non-conventional tools to create works that simultaneously pay homage and parody the great abstract painters of the past. He combines non-traditional and traditional painting methods to create hybrid images.

    Although the works are abstract in appearance they often suggest elements of nature, fireworks, portals into some unknown world, and influences of other cultures and traditions. They represent movement and are a metaphor for connections that exist in our everyday lives.

    On display March 2 – May 5, 2019

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

     

  • In My Element, a photography exhibit

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

    In My Element is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional support provided by Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

     

  • Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - December 29, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?

    In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    April 21, 2019  2:00 pm - 5:30 pm
    Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    What are the secrets and principles that lie behind the design of traditional Chinese gardens? Why is the water in the garden green and not clear? What are there bat-shaped door fittings?

    In "Balancing Yin and Yang: The place of Chinese philosophy in garden construction," we’ll explore how yin and yang and other ideas from ancient Chinese wisdom books like The Book of Changes and the Dao De Jing are embodied within the garden, and get a sense of how the traditional Chinese worldview is brought to life within its walls. After the presentation, we will tour the garden to see these ideas in action!

  • Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - December 29, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?

    In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

  • “JOHN FOXELL: MEMENTO MORI,” AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING THE ART AND LIFE OF A LOCAL LEGEND

    January 24, 2019  12:00 pm - April 27, 2019  7:00 pm
    ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts, 7 Navy Pier Ct, Staten Island, NY 10304, USA

    Beloved by local residents for decades prior to his December 2016 death, Foxell was known as “the unofficial mayor of Port Richmond.” On display at the arts council’s ArtSpace gallery will be Foxell’s assemblages and collage-based works, many of which reflect or satirize politics on Staten Island, as well as selected poetry, writings, film, and interviews by and with the artist. The exhibit will also include photographs of Foxell’s home that were taken by Time magazine Editor-at-Large Paul Moakley and a portrait of the artist that was painted by Robert Bunkin, a figurative painter and former curator at the Staten Island Museum.

    Categorized as outsider art, Foxell’s assemblages are made from found objects such as children’s dolls and toys, buttons, action figures, plastic (and real) skulls, Asian shrines, and African figurines. Photographs and headlines cut from local newspapers make the artist’s point of view known in his more political collage-based pieces and are enlisted as titles or focal points in his assemblages, shedding some light on the intent behind his juxtapositions. Many works reflect a fascination with the dark and macabre. Others seem to mirror, and critique, pop culture, mass consumerism, and current politics. Still others explore varying states of mental health. The works were created after the events of 9/11, which Foxell witnessed firsthand in lower Manhattan.

    Exhibit will run through April 27, 2019.

    ArtSpace Gallery Hours are:
    Thursday & Friday: 2pm – 7pm
    Saturdays: 12pm – 5pm

     

  • Paul Campbell, Selected Works 1999-2019

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    This exhibition surveys the work of NYC-based painter Paul Campbell from 1999-2019, with an emphasis on new work. Since 1998, Campbell has used remote control toys, spiky plastic balls, string, GPS tracks, and other non-conventional tools to create works that simultaneously pay homage and parody the great abstract painters of the past. He combines non-traditional and traditional painting methods to create hybrid images.

    Although the works are abstract in appearance they often suggest elements of nature, fireworks, portals into some unknown world, and influences of other cultures and traditions. They represent movement and are a metaphor for connections that exist in our everyday lives.

    On display March 2 – May 5, 2019

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

     

  • In My Element, a photography exhibit

    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

  • “JOHN FOXELL: MEMENTO MORI,” AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING THE ART AND LIFE OF A LOCAL LEGEND

    January 24, 2019  12:00 pm - April 27, 2019  7:00 pm
    ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts, 7 Navy Pier Ct, Staten Island, NY 10304, USA

    Beloved by local residents for decades prior to his December 2016 death, Foxell was known as “the unofficial mayor of Port Richmond.” On display at the arts council’s ArtSpace gallery will be Foxell’s assemblages and collage-based works, many of which reflect or satirize politics on Staten Island, as well as selected poetry, writings, film, and interviews by and with the artist. The exhibit will also include photographs of Foxell’s home that were taken by Time magazine Editor-at-Large Paul Moakley and a portrait of the artist that was painted by Robert Bunkin, a figurative painter and former curator at the Staten Island Museum.

    Categorized as outsider art, Foxell’s assemblages are made from found objects such as children’s dolls and toys, buttons, action figures, plastic (and real) skulls, Asian shrines, and African figurines. Photographs and headlines cut from local newspapers make the artist’s point of view known in his more political collage-based pieces and are enlisted as titles or focal points in his assemblages, shedding some light on the intent behind his juxtapositions. Many works reflect a fascination with the dark and macabre. Others seem to mirror, and critique, pop culture, mass consumerism, and current politics. Still others explore varying states of mental health. The works were created after the events of 9/11, which Foxell witnessed firsthand in lower Manhattan.

    Exhibit will run through April 27, 2019.

    ArtSpace Gallery Hours are:
    Thursday & Friday: 2pm – 7pm
    Saturdays: 12pm – 5pm

     

  • Paul Campbell, Selected Works 1999-2019

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    This exhibition surveys the work of NYC-based painter Paul Campbell from 1999-2019, with an emphasis on new work. Since 1998, Campbell has used remote control toys, spiky plastic balls, string, GPS tracks, and other non-conventional tools to create works that simultaneously pay homage and parody the great abstract painters of the past. He combines non-traditional and traditional painting methods to create hybrid images.

    Although the works are abstract in appearance they often suggest elements of nature, fireworks, portals into some unknown world, and influences of other cultures and traditions. They represent movement and are a metaphor for connections that exist in our everyday lives.

    On display March 2 – May 5, 2019

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

     

  • In My Element, a photography exhibit

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

    In My Element is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional support provided by Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

     

  • Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - December 29, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?

    In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

    Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds - Staten Island, 1131 Manor Rd, Staten Island, NY 10314, USA

    Registration is under way for the most popular - and fun - running event in the area!

    Your entry fee is for two runners, and helps support the mission of the nonprofit Greenbelt Conservancy.

    The High Rock Challenge is where two-member teams run together along Greenbelt trails competing in mystery events and physical obstacles, which are located throughout the approximately 10K course. Events are designed to encourage teamwork as well as physical and mental stamina. Events are not revealed until race day when you’re on the course.

    The course is scenic and rustic. You will encounter single track trails, rugged terrain, streams and ponds, inclines/declines, and incredible vistas - especially for New York City! The Greenbelt is protected parkland that requires much care and maintenance. Our runners are stewards of the trail system, helping to keep it alive while respecting its fragile ecosystem.

    Local runners have voted the High Rock Challenge as Staten Island's favorite and most popular running event!

    The race is held in memory of NYPD Officer John Kelly. Proceeds from the High Rock Challenge help support the Greenbelt Conservancy, a non-profit organization that provides trail maintenance and environmental education programs in the Greenbelt.

  • The New York City Chili Cook-Off (ICS)

    April 27, 2019  12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Historic Richmond Town, 441 Clarke Ave, Staten Island, NY 10306, USA

    The Official New York State Cook-Off for the International Chili Society (ICS). Includes chili sampling, judging, cash prizes, amusements, and live entertainment. Winners chosen from Historic Richmond Town will go to the world championships!

    The rivalry is real. The competition heated. Teams may dress as cowboys, some wear funny hats, and some have wacky names, but the competition is serious business as the region’s best chili-heads take to the bridges to battle the top cooks of New York at the ninth annual NYC Chili Cookoff at Historic Richmond Town.

    Chiliheads are quick to say that chili is a cuisine of the people. And the judging reflects that philosophy. The International Chili Society (ICS) recommends skipping professional judges and stacking the judges’ table with community members who appreciate good food. As the one and only cookoff in New York City that’s sanctioned by the International Chili Society, the competition entries and the judging can be hotter than the spices.

    Visit with live costumed-interpreters inside the historic buildings for a day filled with family fun!
    - General Store: participate in a museum scavenger hunt for food preparation items of the 1800s.
    - Carpenter Shop: demo of wooden ware from the family farm.
    - Tinsmith Shop: visit with a master tinsmith and view household items cooking implements made of tin.
    - Stephens-Black House Kitchen: Coleslaw demo and sampling.

    About the play:
    Ghosts was Henrik Ibsen’s response to the widespread criticism of Nora in "A Doll’s House," who walks out the door, leaving her husband and children behind. "Ghosts" created even greater controversy, tackling taboo topics and questioning society's rules and conventions. It was a scathing commentary on society’s false morality and hypocrisy. In Ghosts, we see what happens to Mrs. Alving, who stayed in her marriage and paid a severe price. As in most Ibsen plays, the action has happened before the play even begins. The characters enter the play with their secrets, and revelations follow.

  • Paul Campbell, Selected Works 1999-2019

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    This exhibition surveys the work of NYC-based painter Paul Campbell from 1999-2019, with an emphasis on new work. Since 1998, Campbell has used remote control toys, spiky plastic balls, string, GPS tracks, and other non-conventional tools to create works that simultaneously pay homage and parody the great abstract painters of the past. He combines non-traditional and traditional painting methods to create hybrid images.

    Although the works are abstract in appearance they often suggest elements of nature, fireworks, portals into some unknown world, and influences of other cultures and traditions. They represent movement and are a metaphor for connections that exist in our everyday lives.

    On display March 2 – May 5, 2019

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

     

  • In My Element, a photography exhibit

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

  • Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - December 29, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?

    In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

    About the play:
    Ghosts was Henrik Ibsen’s response to the widespread criticism of Nora in "A Doll’s House," who walks out the door, leaving her husband and children behind. "Ghosts" created even greater controversy, tackling taboo topics and questioning society's rules and conventions. It was a scathing commentary on society’s false morality and hypocrisy. In Ghosts, we see what happens to Mrs. Alving, who stayed in her marriage and paid a severe price. As in most Ibsen plays, the action has happened before the play even begins. The characters enter the play with their secrets, and revelations follow.

  • Paul Campbell, Selected Works 1999-2019

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    This exhibition surveys the work of NYC-based painter Paul Campbell from 1999-2019, with an emphasis on new work. Since 1998, Campbell has used remote control toys, spiky plastic balls, string, GPS tracks, and other non-conventional tools to create works that simultaneously pay homage and parody the great abstract painters of the past. He combines non-traditional and traditional painting methods to create hybrid images.

    Although the works are abstract in appearance they often suggest elements of nature, fireworks, portals into some unknown world, and influences of other cultures and traditions. They represent movement and are a metaphor for connections that exist in our everyday lives.

    On display March 2 – May 5, 2019

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

  • In My Element, a photography exhibit

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

  • Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - December 29, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?

    In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

    May 1, 2019  6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
    Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    This past fall, Snug Harbor began an exciting new master planning effort in collaboration with New York City’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Department of Design and Construction (DDC), and Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), referred to as our Capital Project Scope Development (CPSD). The key objective of the CPSD is to determine the scope of work, phasing, and budget necessary to address the current and future capital needs across Snug Harbor’s entire campus. We worked closely with these City agencies to develop the scope of the CPSD, focusing on visitor experience, asset preservation, infrastructure improvements, and realistic cost estimating.

    Learn more in this overview.

    Partnering with City agencies, we assembled a team of world-class architects, engineers, and consultants led by Marvel Architects and The LiRo Group. Our team consists of experts in fields ranging from landscape architecture, visitor experience, infrastructure, sustainability solutions, signage and wayfinding, and everything in between. The CPSD process will be complete in Autumn 2019 with a fully phased and cost-estimated 15-year master plan for Snug Harbor that will provide a roadmap for future capital requests.

    The LiRo Group, our lead engineer for the CPSD, spent months on Snug Harbor’s campus digitally mapping our interior spaces. The image you see here is a preliminary excerpt from this mapping exercise, and shows “slices” cut through some of our historic buildings. This data, aside from being visually stunning, will be used in a myriad of ways to plan Snug Harbor’s future. Potential uses include marketing outreach, floor plan generation for future capital planning, programming considerations, etc. We are thrilled to have such visionary and technologically advanced resources available to us through the CPSD process.

    About the play:
    Ghosts was Henrik Ibsen’s response to the widespread criticism of Nora in "A Doll’s House," who walks out the door, leaving her husband and children behind. "Ghosts" created even greater controversy, tackling taboo topics and questioning society's rules and conventions. It was a scathing commentary on society’s false morality and hypocrisy. In Ghosts, we see what happens to Mrs. Alving, who stayed in her marriage and paid a severe price. As in most Ibsen plays, the action has happened before the play even begins. The characters enter the play with their secrets, and revelations follow.

  • Paul Campbell, Selected Works 1999-2019

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    This exhibition surveys the work of NYC-based painter Paul Campbell from 1999-2019, with an emphasis on new work. Since 1998, Campbell has used remote control toys, spiky plastic balls, string, GPS tracks, and other non-conventional tools to create works that simultaneously pay homage and parody the great abstract painters of the past. He combines non-traditional and traditional painting methods to create hybrid images.

    Although the works are abstract in appearance they often suggest elements of nature, fireworks, portals into some unknown world, and influences of other cultures and traditions. They represent movement and are a metaphor for connections that exist in our everyday lives.

    On display March 2 – May 5, 2019

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

  • Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - December 29, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?

    In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

    May 3, 2019  7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    St. George Theatre, 35 Hyatt St, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    One of the most requested comedians working today, Richie Byrne brings a unique mix of talents to the stage, combining a quick wit and New York sarcasm with the charm of an old-school storyteller. As the warm-up act for the hit series “The Dr. Oz Show” since 2009, Richie provides a dominating stage presence with one of the highest laugh-per-minute counts in the business.

    Richie’s comedy credits include such well-known clubs as Dangerfield’s, Carolines on Broadway and Gotham Comedy Club in New York City. He has also headlined many clubs around the country including Hilarities in Cleveland, The Ice House in Pasadena, The Borgata in Atlantic City as well as the Tropicana in Atlantic City and Las Vegas.

    His comedy television credits include Comedy Central, VH1, “The Rosie O’Donnell Show”, “Good Day New York” and “Gotham Live” on AXS-TV.

    In addition to “The Dr. Oz Show”, Richie’s other daytime warm-up credits include “The Rachael Ray Show”, “The Chew”, “The Jane Pauley Show” as well as the sit-com “Murphy Brown”.

    Not only a popular comedian, Richie is also an accomplished actor & singer, with a long resume of theatrical credits (music & legit) as well as television& film. He can be seen on legendary shows such as HBO’s “Sex and the City” and “The Sopranos” as well as NBC’s “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” & “Conviction”. He can also be seen in the feature film “Goodbye Baby”. Written & directed by Dan Schecter, the film is about a young girl who enters the world of Stand-Up. Besides performing material in the movie & playing a part, Richie was also a consultant on the set & helped to write original material for the lead character.

    Richie is proud to have performed for military bases throughout the U.S. and Europe for the “Comics on Duty” organizations well as countless charities including “Comedy Cures”. Created by Saranne Rothberg, “Comedy Cures” is a non-profit organization using comedy as a therapeutic tool for terminally ill patients and their care-givers.

    Richie was the first comic to ever perform at The United Nations where his opening line was, “Is anyone here from out of town?” He has also been seen at such historic venues as Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall.

    He is honored to be the co-host of the popular podcast “Drinks, Jokes & Storytelling” with fellow comedian Mark Riccadonna and producer Joel Richardson and recently was added as a co-host to the show “Hangin’ with Langan” starring comedian Maureen Langan. “Hangin’ with Langan can be heard every Sunday night from 7-10pm western time on KGO-AM radio in San Francisco.

    Richie considers his biggest accomplishment to be “The Richie Byrne Show”. Written by some of the top comics in NY & performed by some of the most talented actors, singers & musicians, “The Richie Byrne Show” is an “off the wall” throwback to the old days of ‘Variety’.

    Richie’s rants on his family…his job…his weight…his life… as well as his take on pop-culture make him incredibly relatable to any and all audiences.

    Richie Byrne is a multi-talented, uniquely funny comedian & performer that you don’t dare miss!

    About the play:
    Ghosts was Henrik Ibsen’s response to the widespread criticism of Nora in "A Doll’s House," who walks out the door, leaving her husband and children behind. "Ghosts" created even greater controversy, tackling taboo topics and questioning society's rules and conventions. It was a scathing commentary on society’s false morality and hypocrisy. In Ghosts, we see what happens to Mrs. Alving, who stayed in her marriage and paid a severe price. As in most Ibsen plays, the action has happened before the play even begins. The characters enter the play with their secrets, and revelations follow.

  • Paul Campbell, Selected Works 1999-2019

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    This exhibition surveys the work of NYC-based painter Paul Campbell from 1999-2019, with an emphasis on new work. Since 1998, Campbell has used remote control toys, spiky plastic balls, string, GPS tracks, and other non-conventional tools to create works that simultaneously pay homage and parody the great abstract painters of the past. He combines non-traditional and traditional painting methods to create hybrid images.

    Although the works are abstract in appearance they often suggest elements of nature, fireworks, portals into some unknown world, and influences of other cultures and traditions. They represent movement and are a metaphor for connections that exist in our everyday lives.

    On display March 2 – May 5, 2019

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

  • Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - December 29, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?

    In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

    In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

    May 9, 2019  8:00 pm - May 11, 2019  9:00 pm
    Historic Richmond Town, 441 Clarke Ave, Staten Island, NY 10306, USA

    Written by Reginald Rose, this gripping drama brings us into the jury room of a murder trial, where the 12 members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused. As the dozen men try to reach a unanimous decision while sequestered in a room, one juror casts considerable doubt on elements of the case. Personal issues soon rise to the surface, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate process that will decide one young man's fate.

    May 9, 2019  8:00 pm - May 11, 2019  9:00 pm
    Historic Richmond Town, 441 Clarke Ave, Staten Island, NY 10306, USA

    Written by Reginald Rose, this gripping drama brings us into the jury room of a murder trial, where the 12 members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused. As the dozen men try to reach a unanimous decision while sequestered in a room, one juror casts considerable doubt on elements of the case. Personal issues soon rise to the surface, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate process that will decide one young man's fate.

  • Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land

    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?

    In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

    May 18, 2019  11:00 am - 12:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    There has been a ton of talk lately about the Divine Feminine. Even if we feel the affinity to those words, however, we need to first clarify: What is this Divine Feminine? How do we relate to something that has been suppressed and so infrequently discussed or represented? In this talk and discussion, art curator and writer Erin Sickler, will take us on a tour of three figures of the feminine divine–Isis, the High Priestess; Haumea, the Mother Goddess of Hawaii; and Lilith, the spirit of vengeance and the shadow–and how we can harness the lessons of these archetypes for our own individual and collective transformation.

    The event will consist of an overview of the stories of Isis, Haumea, and Lilith, and how we might use these archetypes for our own physical, emotional, and psychological healing as well as some somatic exercises.

    Created and performed by Londs Reuter and friends, Private Inventory or No Health Insurance is athinking, moving, and writing-it-down practice that looks more at what choreographs us than what we choreograph. Private Inventory attempts to translate non-verbal, embodied self-knowledge acquired through dancing into written record. From movement practices, we generate writings, surveys, anecdotes, and charts to map out the particularities and generalities of a dancing body. Private Inventory or No Health Insurance assumes that there is no normative body and that we’re all carving out unique ways of moving through the world at all times.

     

  • DENNIS MILLER

    May 18, 2019  7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    St. George Theatre, 35 Hyatt St, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    It’s been said that Dennis Miller is “One of the premiere comedy talents in America today…” While others are blunt assessing Miller’s comedic stature, Dennis himself makes a virtue of understatement, but there is nothing low key about his career.

    As Miller is on tour preparing for his new special, you can hear Dennis ranting on his twice weekly podcast “The Dennis Miller Option” (PodcastOne!) or his twice daily syndicated, 60-second radio feature “The Miller Minute.” He was recently featured as a lead ranking comedian by the Hollywood Reporter via social media analytics.

    Miller is a five-time Emmy award winner for his critically acclaimed half-hour, live talk show “Dennis Miller Live” which had a nine-year run on HBO. Miller also garnered three Writer’s Guild of America Awards for the series as well as an additional WGA Award for his 1997 HBO special, “Dennis Miller: Citizen Arcane.” He also wrote and starred in the Emmy-nominated cable comedy special “Raw Feed.” That show, along with the six other standup specials he did for HBO from 1988-2006, are featured in the DVD Box Set, “Dennis Miller: The HBO Specials.” This was followed by Dennis’ eighth special for HBO “Dennis Miller: The Big Speech” in 2010. His most recent stand up special is “Fake News, Real Jokes,” released by Comedy Dynamics in November 2018.

    Dennis has also achieved success in the literary arena with four books, “I Rant Therefore I Am,” “The Rants,” “Ranting Again,” and “The Rant Zone” have all been New York Times best sellers. For two seasons, Miller called the plays alongside Al Michaels and NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts on ABC’s “Monday Night Football.” He was also the “Weekend Update” correspondent on “Saturday Night Live” for six years, before exiting in 1991.

    Fans remember Dennis’ Westwood One Radio talk show “The Dennis Miller Show” as well as him on “The O’Reilly Factor” and as host and executive producer of CNBC’s “Dennis Miller,” a topical interview talk show featuring reasoned discourse, opinion and humor. Dennis has also appeared in such films including “Disclosure,” “The Net,” “Murder at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue” and “What Happens in Vegas.”

    Over the years, Miller has become both a public and critical favorite. The New York Times said, “Mr. Miller is exquisitely attuned to contemporary foibles…his material can be scathing, his delivery low key…Mr. Miller reaches a bit farther than most comedians for the scorching comment…this smart aleck has an uncommonly sharp eye…” and The Hollywood Reporter called his most recent special, “an hour of topical, scathing brilliance that helps cement Miller’s status as the Lenny Bruce of the new millennium…the most cerebral, astute and clever standup ever to put mouth to microphone.”

    Dennis is an active member of the Montecito community where he lives with his wife of 30 years, home designer Carolyn and has raised two millennial sons.

  • Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - December 29, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?

    In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

    Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

    All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors). Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.
