Alternating art pop-ups will be held in the gazebo every three weeks.

NOW THROUGH DEC. 24:  Lesley Dill’s Rush at Neuberger Museum of Art

Neuberger Museum of Art is displaying Lesley Dill’s Rush, a large, visually dazzling, site-responsive work that premiered at the Museum in 2007 and later was acquired for the Museum’s permanent collection. In this sculptural installation, covering a 20’ x 60’ wall in the Museum’s Theater Gallery, Dill gives visual form to a poetic text by Franz Kafka. Advancing her personal “archaeology of language,” she creates an immersive work that connects the individual viewer to concepts of interior thought through small and large personal and public gestures. Gallery hours: Wed-Fri: 12-5pm.

Much Ado About Masks

Americans seem to love symbols. It’s our shorthand or slang for announcing who we are or how we feel. So it’s no wonder that masks have become as popular as T-shirts, baseball hats or decals as a way of announcing an affiliation or a point of view. As a kid growing up in Far Rockaway, a mask to me was for play-acting “The Lone Ranger” as we listened to the radio show. Well, we’ve come a long way from the Wild West in our mask meanings.
