Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean Movie at The American Museum of Natural History
Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean will be show in 2D at: 10:30 am and 12:30 pm; 3D digital showings at: 11:30 am; 1:30 pm; 2:30 pm; 3:30 pm; 4:30pm.
Filmed over three years at locations around the world, including the Bahamas, Fiji, and Bimini, Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean (40 min.) is narrated by renowned oceanographer Sylvia Earle.
Cousteau, son of ocean pioneer Jacques Cousteau, and marine biologist
Holly Lohuis take viewers on a breathtaking journey underwater.
Audiences will see more than 30 species of marine animals, including
animals seldom seen by even the most experienced divers, such
as Christmas tree worms, basket stars, banded cleaner shrimp, and fishes
such as gobies and blennies. The footage illuminates behaviors of
underwater animals captured for the first time thanks to the development
of new tools that allow underwater filming in 3D, ultra-HD 5K, slow
motion, macro, and with motion control.

Carl Van Vechten: Photographing the Harlem Renaissance and Beyond at the Museum of the City of New York
essayist, and photographer Carl Van Vechten (1880-1964) promoted the
work of African-American artists and writers. He was most notably
associated with the Harlem Renaissance, the artistic, literary, and
musical movement of the 1920s. The City Museum is proud to exhibit a
selection of Van Vechten’s photographs from its collection in
conjunction with the 26th anniversary of New York City History Day and
to highlight its theme, “Exploration, Encounter, Exchange in History.”
As a result of the “Great Migration,” Harlem became the largest
African-American community in the United States, providing black artists
a place to gather and express themselves on the world’s stage. Among
the figures featured in the exhibition are poet Langston Hughes, writer
Countée Cullen, and performers Ella Fitzgerald and Bill Robinson.

The New-York Historical Society is proud to
unveil our newly acquired and conserved Picasso. Pablo Picasso painted
the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (“El
sombrero de tres picos” or “Le tricorne”). The ballet and curtain were
commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde,
Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the
twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with
music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22,
1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and
the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John
Richardson once called “Le Tricorne” the artist’s “supreme theatrical
achievement.” The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and
Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish
collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set
for the ballet.
