See the mountains through the moviemaker’s lens. For nearly 100 years, filmmakers have been captivated by high peaks and mountain slopes. Join film historian Max Alvarez and Curator of American Art Tricia Bloom for an interactive screening and discussion inspired by the Museum’s special exhibition The Rockies & The Alps: Bierstadt, Calame, and the Romance of the Mountains. FREE for Members and Newark residents; $5 non-members.

This silver-screen adventure takes you from the High Sierras to the Wetterhorn, and from Charlie Chaplin to 21st-century award-winners like Grand Budapest Hotel and Murder on the Orient Express. Whether it’s romance, adventure, action or comedy, it’s mountains that have the starring role.

Highlights
• Max Alvarez is your guide through a wide range of mountain films, from the silent era to today, including shorts, features, documentaries and fiction films.
• Curator Tricia Laughlin Bloom will highlight the connections between filmmakers, landscape painters, and early photographers and writers who traveled into the mountains.
• Take part in conversations on how the movies shape our imagination of the mountains.
• The Rockies & The Alps exhibition open before and after the program for viewing.

‘Tis the season for recreating our homes and favorite buildings out of dough. Even though no one has put baked panel to icing and build the Gilmore Girls home in Stars Hollow out of crispy gingerbread or frosty fondant (yet), these landmarks both real and fictional have us whispering, “I smell snow.”

ApartmentTherapy.com has put together an amazing array of gingerbread houses that imitate architecture artistry. I can’t take my eyes away!

Now more than ever, we need the power of dance to bring us all together, connected by our common humanity. Engage your emotions as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns with premieres that touch on timely topics and beloved works such as Revelations, which fervently explores the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul.

America’s premier modern dance company is known for its vibrant fusion of modern dance, ballet and more. The company grew from a now-fabled performance in March 1958 at New York City’s 92nd Street Y. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance.

WHAT WILL COME

Through May: NEW ACQUISITION: “WHAT WILL COME” (2007) VIDEO INSTALLATION BY WILLIAM KENTRIDGE. “A recent acquisition – an installation by the renowned South African artist William Kentridge – is on view in the Arts of Global Africa’s dedicated gallery for video art. WHAT WILL COME (2007) is an animated film, created using Kentridge’s signature technique of drawing and erasing on a sheet of paper and filming the process frame-by-frame. The work is inspired by Italy’s invasion of Ethiopia in 1935, in which 275,000 Ethiopians lost their lives. Among them were a large number of civilians who were gassed, a fact denied by the Italian government until 1995. The title originates from a Ghanaian proverb, “what will come, has already come,” a reference to the cyclical nature of history.”
