Paul Rand: The Father of Graphic Design at the Museum of the City of New York

Regina Weinreich | March 28, 2015 | Arts
Perhaps the most recognizable poster created by Paul Rand is the one he made for IBM, with its clean iconic triad, the eye, the bee, with the alphabet letter M, striped to match the body of the bee, to complete the rhebus.

Serenity Gathering 2015

Morena Duwe | March 27, 2015 | Entertainment
Though seemingly disorganized, Serenity Gathering managed to put together a beautiful festival in spite of oversold tickets and overworked staff. From the eyes of attendees, it was nothing but beautiful music, art, performances and oak trees.

Does Ballet Have a Color?

Virginia Johnson | March 27, 2015 | Arts
It is so odd to feel like an outsider on an issue that touched my life so profoundly and was at least a part of what Arthur Mitchell set out to address 46 years ago when he and Karel Shook cofounded The Dance Theatre of Harlem in the basement of a church in Harlem.

Opera Teen | March 27, 2015 | Arts
The result of the Met's new production of Tchaikovsky's Iolanta paired with Bartok's Bluebeard's Castle was an evening as inert as the snow that blanketed Lincoln Center.

"Of Things Soothsaid and Spoken": Paintings by Yevgeniya Baras

William Eckhardt Kohler | March 27, 2015 | Arts
The best of these have the capacity to transmit the magical healing property of painting -- the feeling that in making them the artist was transformed and that in looking the viewer can be transformed.

The Heidi Chronicles: Pursuing It All

Danny Groner | March 27, 2015 | New York
Give Wendy Wasserstein credit: Her play The Heidi Chronicles brilliantly toes the line between remaining relevant to new, contemporary audiences while simultaneously exemplifying how far we've come from tumultuous years of inequality for women.

How to Succeed at a 365 Photography Project

Lennart de Jong | March 27, 2015 | UK Entertainment
Producing a photograph every day was and is hard. It forced us to be creative and get the best out of every day and situation. More than ever it made us realise the beauty that is all around us, and that even with a simple camera you can get beautiful pictures on a boring day.

Anne Margaret Daniel | March 27, 2015 | Books
Today, the earliest surviving manuscript draft of The Great Gatsby rests in a high-security, climate-controlled vault in Princeton, New Jersey. However, this manuscript is not the first draft of the novel. Only two pages of that survive.

Pornosophy: Your Friends & Neighbors

Francis Levy | March 27, 2015 | Arts
Relationships are complex and there's something almost appealing about the self-sufficiency that the universe of masturbation provides.

J. Michael Welton | March 27, 2015 | Arts
Jim Marshall's success as a photographer can be attributed to his insistence on one non-negotiable term from his subjects: Access to everything.

Why You Should Read More Poetry

Iain S. Thomas | March 27, 2015 | Books
While all the poetry in the world might not be worth as much as one good doctor, if there is a reason we are alive, if there is a reason we're here, it can be found in poetry. It is the barest bones of the human experience and it captures the soul in flight.

The Heidi Chronicles on Broadway; First World Problems

Monica Bauer | March 27, 2015 | Arts
This is supposed to be a great feminist play. But what does Heidi want? She wants to get married and have babies but also be an art historian. She wants to "have it all." Only we don't see her struggle to get, or keep, a career. We only see her struggle to find a man.

Daniel Grant | March 27, 2015 | Arts
We are living in the great age of opinion-writing, of critiques and commentaries, so why have so many of the art critics disappeared from major metropolitan newspapers? Perhaps more importantly, what does this mean for artists looking to advance their careers?

When Man-Boys Are Forced to Grow Up

George Heymont | March 27, 2015 | Arts
Many men exhibit symptoms of the Peter Pan syndrome, hoping that somehow they won't ever have to grow up. If they can cling to the vision of Neverland that's in their minds, maybe they won't have to leave the video arcade, go to college, or get a job.

Aisle View: Spring Spectacular

Steven Suskin | March 27, 2015 | Arts
Since the place was reborn in 1979 under the direction of the new Radio City Musical Hall Productions, the Spring Spectacular has been reliably perky, friendly, and leaning towards mass-market bland.
