You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown (In the Wings Productions)
Mar 24 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in this classic  musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy, piano prodigy Schroeder, perfectionist Sally, blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy, and the “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. This show has the sweet and joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.

All performances held at Snug Harbor Cultural Center’s Music Hall, Building T.

Book Talk: Roots of Empire: Forests and State Power in Early Modern Spain, c.1500-1750 @ Greenbelt Nature Center (in Blood Root Valley)
Mar 25 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

While forest management and social balance may sound like modern concepts, the rulers of imperial Spain had considered them when managing timber stands at home and abroad, spurred by their need to sustain large ocean-going fleets. Roots of Empire examines the intersection of forest exploitation and the expansion of royal power in the global Spanish monarchy, presenting archival research that challenges the traditional portrayal of the Spanish as unable and uninterested in conserving its forests. Roots of Empire explores how Spain’s rising imperial commitments led to long-term strategies of forest management in the Old World and the New, and offers new interpretations of conservation and resource management through the lens of the material challenges of state building. Registration is required. Please call (718)351-3450 or email naturecenter@sigreenbelt.org . Light refreshments provided. This program is sponsored by Greener NYC.

DNA of Water: Opening Reception
Mar 26 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Snug Harbor Cultural Center
Main Hall- Building C
Exhibit open from March 26, 2017-September 3, 2017

The DNA of Water exhibition considers how water has traditionally and simultaneously functioned as border, passageway, and gateway. Using Thomas More’s 1516 book, Utopia, as a jumping off point, curator Sasha Dees invites audiences to ask the questions: How do we as a people relate to our history, our present and future? Are we willing to question history and adapt in the present? Are we willing and able to continuously make the needed changes and reform ourselves to be equipped for the future?

Curated by Sasha Dees, featuring the work of Deborah Jack, Petri Saarikko, Sasha Huber and Simone Bennett.

This project is in part made possible by: Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation, Arts Promotion Centre Finland & VISEK (for Sasha Huber & Petri Saarikko), Mondriaan Foundation (for the work by Simone Bennett).
