NYU Gallatin invites you to come see and hear the magic of Wild NYC brought to life by a dynamic panel & special wild guests!

Thursday, December 4, 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The Jerry H.  Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts
1 Washington Square Place

Though we generally think of NYC as a completely urbanized environment, we still have bats in Washington Square Park, harbor seals and beavers in the rivers, and coyotes in Central Park.When Bobby and Violet, the first Bobst library Redatailed Hawk pair, took up residence in President Sexton's window and captured hearts on the Hawkcam, they brought with them the ghost of this lost paradise and inspired us to reconsider the relationship between humans and wild here in NYC.

This event is free and open to the public. Visit the event page for more information, or watch a video from Wild NYC 2013.

Join NYU Gallatin & experience ALL YOU CAN BE: Explorations of the Self and Mutations.

November 25 - January 25, All Day
1 Washington Place
The Gallatin Galleries

All You Can Be looks at the ways notions of the self are constructed, contextualized and invented. Underlying these works is the idea that who we are is often a choice and that can be revealed and rearranged, transformed and mutated. Whether in video or performance, paintings or photos, each of these artists asks the question: What does it mean to be All You Can Be?

Private investment in industry is low, government spending on infrastructure has plunged, and output per worker measures are barely increasing. In this lecture, Brenner will explore the reason for this disconnect between market performance and corporate salaries as well as the causes of stagnation in production, how it relates to the disparity in income distribution in America, and how the waning standard of living is laying the groundwork for another very real economic crisis.

This event is free and open to the public.
Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis.
