Things Happening this Weekend and Beyond

Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center
As we've mentioned before, two extra dates have been added to the Brooklyn Park Glass Project.  We'll be meeting Saturday at one o'clock at the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument.  All collected glass will be sent for recycling.  Gloves and bags will be provided.

Also on Saturday, New York City Volunteer Club will be holding a Rockaway Freeway Dog Park Clean-Up and Mural Painting.  They'll be meeting from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Volunteers will help paint the mural, paint benches at the park and clean-up for the fall season.  Meet at 82 Beach St.

Check out Scripture: Skullphone & Curtis Kulig.  "The first documented collaboration between iconographic artists Skullphone and Curtis Kulig merges their distinct motifs and styles in a single exhibition. Scripture includes Kulig's classic 'Love Me' script dripping on canvas and new digital media paintings—one of them a three-foot-tall Prada cross—by Skullphone, who is largely known for his black-and-white skull-on-a-cell-phone iconography spotted across LA. Scripture remains on view at Mallick Williams & Co. through November 8."

Today was the start of New York Comic Con and Anime Festival at the Javits Center.  See panels and screenings, take part in a charity auction, meet some of your favorite artists and writers or just go to see the cosplayers.  Now through October 16th.

Also today was the start of the NYC Food Film Festival.  This four-day multi-venue event celebrates food-related film.  As you can imagine there will be lots of food!

October 14th through 16th is the Black Farmers & Urban Gardeners Conference.  Rashid Nuri will be the keynote speaker.  Go to their site for more information on volunteering, presenting, sponsoring or just attending.

October 14th through 16th, the Historic House Trust is holding tours of several historical homes all over New York like Edgar Allen Poe's cottage in the Bronx and Gracie Mansion.  There will also be other low cost events.

October is Architecture and Design Month.  Head to the Archtober site to find an event.  There will be special tours, lectures, films and exhibitions all over the city.
