Join us at North of History gallery on Thursday, July 26, 2018 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. for the art opening reception of DIMENSIONAL CITIES, a solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Harlem based abstract artist, GARRY GRANT. This exhibition will run from July 26 - August 15, 2018.
DIMENSIONAL CITIES feature Garry Grant’s two series of works: The Detroit Industrial Complex Series and the Fortification Series. Grant’s body of work focuses on diverse urban landscapes, local and world affairs, and the evolution of our culture. He often includes geometric shapes, vibrant color, and repetition as a way of conveying rhythm in his compositions.

The story of Donald Trump's election told entirely through Russian propaganda. By turns horrifying and hilarious, the film is a satirical portrait of Russian meddling in the 2016 election that reveals an empire of fake news and the tactics of modern day information warfare.

8:00 PM: Doors Open
8:30 PM: Live Music from Champagne Superchillin

10:30 PM: Q&A with Jim Cummings
The Old American Can Factory

On Saturday, August 11th, Rooftop Films will present Thunder Road as part of their 2018 Summer Series lineup! Taking place at the The Old American Can Factory in Gowanus, Brooklyn, the evening will include a pre-show performance by retro chic French pop trio Champagne Superchillin, and a post-screening Q&A with director/writer/star Jim Cummings. An expanded, feature-length version of the Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning dramatic short of the same title, Thunder Road tells the story of flawed police officer Jim Arnaud (Cummings), who lives a shambolic life that's somehow made even worse by his mother's passing. His only stability comes in the shape of his daughter, Crystal (Kendal Farr), who he tries to father--amidst messy divorce proceedings with his estranged wife, Roz (Jocelyn DeBoer)--as best as he can.

The 2018 Rooftop Films Summer Series takes place from May 19 to August 25 and is presented by Sundance TV.

The South Street Seaport Museum announces Heaven's Ditch: God, Gold, and Murder on the Erie Canal Book Talk with Jack Kelly on Tuesday, August 14 at 6:30 pm at the Melville Gallery 213 Water Street, NYC. Doors open at 6:15 PM. Book signing to follow the talk. Books on sale at the event.

The Erie Canal made New York the commercial capital of America and brought the modern world crashing into the frontier. Readers encounter America's very first "crime of the century," wild treasure hunts, searing acts of violence, a visionary cross-dresser, and a panoply of fanatics, mystics, and hoaxers.

Tickets are $10 (free for members) and can be purchased at
