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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
