Kate and Greg, empty-nesters living in Manhattan, have a comfortable life. Their static world is turned upside down when Sylvia jumps in Greg's lap one day in the park. Part-Lab, part-Poodle and 100% woman, Sylvia forces the pair to come to terms with who they are as individuals and as a couple. A.R. Gurney's most improbable love-triangle will have you laughing out loud. The New York Times called it "so full of theatrical intelligence and writerly skill that it consistently pleases."

It's a Dog's Life: Norman Rockwell Paints Man's Best Friend
On view June 25 through November 11, 2011
Throughout Norman Rockwell's career, dogs of all kinds-from wide-eyed beagles to shiny collies-made frequent appearances in his art. A dog-lover himself, the artist realized how appealing dogs were to readers of the Saturday Evening Post and other publications, and he intentionally cast them as central figures in his compositions for cover paintings, story illustrations, advertisements, and family Christmas cards.
Rockwell's own canine companions accompanied him to the studio, and sometimes took time out to nap alongside him as he worked. This engaging installation will shed light on Rockwell's work with man's best friends through original artworks, photographs, and archival materials that offer insights into his artistic goals and working methods.
