The Clifton Institute 6712 Blantyre Rd, Warrenton, VA

Join us for a lovely afternoon of pond-side painting with Armand Cabrera, award-winning, self-taught, oil & watercolor painter represented by galleries across the United States. He has been juried into many national exhibitions and honored with top awards at many of these shows.

For this event, Armand will do a live, two-hour painting demo as he discusses his process and offers tips. Program attendees are welcome to watch him work, ask questions, and/or bring their own art supplies to set up around the pond and take advantage of the inspiration nature provides.

This event will be entirely outdoors and limited to 10 participants, with social distancing required and masks strongly recommended. Registration is required: https://cliftoninstitute.org/evrplus_registration/?action=evrplusegister&event_id=285

IMPORTANT: If you are registered for this event and can no longer attend, please let us know as soon as possible. Due to smaller group size limits already imposed by COVID-19, many of our events have waitlists, and a few ‘no-shows’ can have a significant impact on the success of a program. We enjoy planning, promoting, and hosting these events and want to make sure they are available to everyone who is interested in attending.

“In Between” by ZAZ10TS in Times Square

“In Between” is a new concept of video art exhibition curated by ZAZ10TS and presented on ZAZ Corner where continuous artwork is displayed for 15 seconds at a time on a large LED billboard in the heart of Times Square. Curated videos are interspersed between commercial messages every 2 minutes. Starting in September 2020, a new artist will be selected for the showcase each month.

ZAZ Corner, or as referred to by founder Tzili Charney as her “Artistic Mezuzah,” aims to engage the public with visuals that are different from the urban environment. With the launch of ZAZ Corner, ZAZ10TS is working with artists, organizations, universities, and cultural institutions to bring a wide selection of artwork to its digital billboard.
The “In Between” venue will kick off with artist Ben Hagari on September 1st with his pandemic inspired “About Face” video series. Ben Hagari is an award-winning artist whose artwork has been shown in prominent museums around the world. The “About Face” video project is shot entirely at home in New York City as the artist was isolated and stayed in place during the COVID 19 pandemic. The character, constrained by limited expression and space, continues to navigate daily routines. The faceless protagonist found new relevance with everyone around wearing masks, concealing their faces, and inevitably their facial expressions. The expressionless protagonist is shown from the back of his head which is shaved and a projected face void of all facial features. His wardrobe including footwear is worn with the front side on the back and all his movements are reversed.

“The scenarios portray a mundane existence in a world whose marks have been erased. Books have no titles or words, photographs are blanked out, labels are removed; we are left with data. It generates a binary structure: backward and forward, front and rear, serious and funny,” says Ben Hagari.


About Ben Hagari

Ben Hagari was born in Tel Aviv and lives and works in NYC. His work has been shown internationally in several solo exhibitions at the Rose Art Museum, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and Flora Ars+Natura in Bogotá. Selected group exhibitions featuring his work include the Sculpture Center in New York as part of their In-Practice survey of contemporary sculptures, the Whitechapel Gallery in London, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Kunst im Tunnel Contemporary Art Museum in Düsseldorf, and the Israel Museum among others. Hagari has received numerous awards and fellowships for his work, including the Israel Ministry of Culture Prize in Art, the Foundation for Contemporary Art Emergency Grant, the David Berg Foundation Fellowship at Columbia University, and the Chami Fruchter Award for an Emerging Video Artist. He has attended several residency programs, including the LMCC (Lower Manhattan Cultural Council) residency Process Space at Governors Island in New York, the Fountainhead Residency in Miami, and the Bronner Residency in Düsseldorf. Hagari has also received a B.Ed Fine Arts degree from the Hamidrasha School of Art, Beit Berl College in Israel (2008), and an MFA from Columbia University in New York (2014).

A Sea of Possibilities: Changing Human Relationships with Plastic

Wednesday, May 20 at 6:00 PM

Join us for a special evening with
National Geographic Explorer and sustainability entrepreneur


Please join us at our Annual Meeting, when UNA-NY will celebrate our collective accomplishments over the past year, and when we will warmly welcome our special guest speaker Agustina Besada, who will share her experience exploring first-hand the problem and solutions of plastic pollution.

Agustina is a National Geographic Explorer and sustainability entrepreneur specializing in circular economy and triple bottom lines, with a focus on the life-cycle of materials. In May 2018, Agustina crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a 36-feet sailboat — twice — to research firsthand the reality of plastics in the ocean and to study international solutions.

Building on this voyage, she founded and now co-directs Unplastify, an organization that is focused on Latin America and which seeks to promote awareness and solutions to rethink human relationships with plastic, through exploration, education and impactful actions.

Agustina will cover and highlight her science knowledge about different aspects of the problem, such as sources, scale, and effects. She will also cover the possible types of solutions to this global problem with real examples, and the roles of the different stakeholders that could have great positive impact in being part of the solution.

Together we will reflect on what are our roles and actions that would allow us to meaningfully change our human relationships with plastic.

SOCIALLY DISTANT THEATER: The Solo Show As Seen By Hirschfeld

Monday, May 11 to Saturday, June 20

The Al Hirschfeld Foundation is proud to announce the first in a series of online exhibitions exploring the work of one of the most iconic artists of the last century. On May 11, the Foundation opened a special exhibition for these times: “SOCIALLY DISTANT THEATER: The Solo Show As Seen By Hirschfeld”, a collection of 25 drawings, paintings, collages, and prints documenting a half century of one person shows. This special digital exhibit will be online for six weeks through June 20 at AlHirschfeldFoundation.org/exhibitions before a new exhibition is presented.

“In the world of the theater, the one-person show is perhaps the best situation and the worst,” writes David Leopold, Creative Director for the AHF in the introduction to the exhibition. “It is a supreme test of assurance and ability; of magnetism and charisma. But the format is also frightening; there’s no one to play against, to lean on, to share the criticism. For an actor, if there is no one else to take the blame, there is also no one to share the credit with as well. The applause at the end is for only one performer. In many ways these performers are all caricatures in the sense they have exaggerated elements of their subject to bring a whole life or simply a story to life. So in essence, Al Hirschfeld, the ultimate solo artist, is the ideal portraitist for this unique form of theater.”

In addition to showing the artwork in detail as it has never been seen before, throughout the exhibition are links to videos of parts or the whole of some of these solo performances. You can see Henry Fonda as Clarence Darrow, Julie Harris as Emily Dickinson, or Robert Morse as Truman Capote. Or you can see Eric Bogosian, Whoopi Goldberg, and John Leguizamo channel a seemingly endless parade of characters from their solo shows. It turns out being alone has never been so interesting

In keeping with the spirit of Hirschfeld, this exhibition is free and open to everyone. The show is part of the AHF’s continuing mission to promote interest in the theater and the performing and visual arts. to support its arts education program, there is a special gift shop of merchandise connected to the exhibition at online at AlHirschfeldFoundationshop.org/SDT.

Go behind the lines of Hirschfeld’s art with “The Hirschfeld Century Podcast,” nominated as “Best NYC podcast” by the 2020 Apple Awards. A special episode dedicated to the works featured in “Socially Distant Theater” will be available starting May 20 from AlHirschfeldFoundation.org/podcasts, iTunes and other popular podcast sits.

Saturday, September 28 to Sunday, September 29
Anaheim, CA

NostalgiaCon is the first ever annual pop culture convention dedicated to the celebration of decades past and the icons and events that defined them. In today’s world, we see more than ever the power of nostalgia and its infinite cultural reach.

NostalgiaCon’s Ultimate 80s Reunion will capture this phenomenon like never before, inviting like-minded fans of all ages to rediscover these 10 iconic years in fresh, fun and innovative ways. Anchored in Anaheim, CA, over two days, The Ultimate 80s Reunion consists of film and TV show reunions, pop culture sessions, celebrity meet and greets, breakdance and lip synch battle competitions, and a massive expo for activations featuring everything from movies, TV, fashion, food, sports, video games, collectibles, cars, and of course, music.

The music of the 80s is as vital today as it was then, and we’ll prove it with two concert nights featuring the biggest, most influential artists of new wave, heavy metal, pop rock, and hip-hop.

NostalgiaCon isn’t just a recap – it’s a renaissance. And it’s unprecedented.

Many fandom conventions span several decades. Some put together tribute concerts and themed cruises. We’re going deeper. The 80s aren’t just a memory, they’re a mindset. So rather than reduce the decade to clichés, catchphrases and greatest hits, we want to explore its deep and lasting cultural impact in a way that’s never been done before. Between the people who lived it the first time around and the millennials who can’t get enough, our demo is both prodigious and passionate. Attendees will be knowledgeable with a deep curiosity and boundless enthusiasm. Our goal is to provide an authentic, immersive and insightful experience that transcends the confines of convention – and the convention center.

NostalgiaCon: The Ultimate 80s Reunion. RELIVE YOUR DECADE.
