At Brooklyn Historical Society This Week

Tomorrow (Tuesday, March 15), starting at 6:30, the Brooklyn Historical Society will present a screening of That Which Is Possible,

the 2015 documentary about the community of painters, sculptors, musicians, and writers, who create works of art at the Living Museum, an art space on the grounds of a large state-run psychiatric facility in Queens.

A discussion with the film’s director or with a featured actor will follow the screening. This is a ReelAbilities presentation, hosted by Yad HaChazakah, the Jewish Disability Empowerment Center. Admission is a suggested donation of $10. You may register for this event by calling 646-723-3955 or e-mailing

If you want shelter from what bartenders–especially the Irish ones–call “amateur night”, BHS on Thursday evening (that’s March 17, of course), starting at 7:00, will present the Brooklyn Art Song Society, featuring a splendid lineup of singers and pianists (more details here), doing songs by Benjamin Britten (photo), a former Brooklyn Heights resident. Admission is $25, or $15 for BHS or Green-Wood members. That’s less than you would spend on green beer and shots of Jameson over the same length of time, and you can go celebrate after. Purchase tickets here.
