I was skeptical when my husband first urged me to attend these classes where young players perform in front of world-renowned guitarists who critique and provide feedback. I am not a guitarist. But I soon realized there are always lessons to learn from masterful teachers--no matter what they are teaching.

Chicago Architecture Biennial,
Chicago is tired of being flown over. It is tired of being called the third coast. It is tired of being known for its fierce wind, multiple members of the Daley family, and the Mob. It is tired of being called the Second City.The first Chicago Architecture Biennial -- a success on many counts -- lays all that to rest.

New York City-New York,
Fin De Siecle,
As you approach the Linda Gross Theater, you're struck by the imposing quiet of it. Sealed doors keep out the faint of heart; the Church-like building sleeps, bathed in the light of an October moon. Could this be your destination, or have you made a mistake?

More and more A-list Hollywood celebrities are crossing the country to star in limited-run productions, and film studios are putting more focus on their live entertainment divisions. The thrill of seeing an actor in a live moment is something that only gets more unique as screens get smaller.
Three years out of college, working in the corporate fashion industry and living in New York City, I was frustrated and lost. I had great opportunities and creative freedom in my job, but I wasn't accomplishing everything I hoped. I wanted more for myself.

Mr. Fleck's banjo with its bluegrass inflections, and Mr. Corea's piano with his classical flourishes and Latin-inspired rhythmic approach, come from two vastly different musical worlds, but these two wizards made these variants work for the most part, to a surprising degree.
This country is not going to change itself into a new nation because John Kerry visited, nor because of the third visit by a pope. But Cuba is changing when people like this British rocker, icon of good music and of the greatest possible irreverence, touch down in Havana.
Memories take center stage in Ruth Weisberg's dreamlike images, recalling Gaston Bachelard's philosophic premise in The Poetics of Space that "something closed must retain our memories, while leaving them their original value as images."
Family historians tracing black family ancestries love wills and probate records. Why? Because these seemingly dry and bloodless documents are full of priceless information about our enslaved African American ancestors.

The New York City Ballet has returned with all its relevance, strong and modern. The dancers are not "stingy." They are not "holding back." They exist in the "now," "right now." Balanchine would be proud.
It is said that when the Italian Renaissance artist Verrocchio saw the work of his student, Leonardo da Vinci, he decided to quit painting since he knew that his work had certainly been surpassed.

Okay, so sue me, but Los Feliz, 90027 rocks! IMHO, Los Feliz is the funkiest, coolest hood in LA. Not just for the flocks of gorgeous, free-flying parrots squawking overhead. Not just for all the celebrity sightings -- Jon Hamm, Jack...

Telepresence is being used a lot more often as a way for people to engage in real time, from distant places, to project monuments that have been destroyed, convey size as a metaphor, and do powerful projections of imagery.

While the documentary shows Kramer in robust health and, later in life, as a frail senior citizen, it teaches viewers what can happen when one fiercely intelligent man (who is not willing to take "no" for an answer) speaks truth to power.
Spring Awakening left Broadway just six years ago. And its original cast -- Jonathan Groff, John Gallagher Jr. and Lea Michele -- left huge shoes to fill. But it's a delight to see the story has lost none of its impact, the score and songs none of their dusky, moody impact.
The first-ever Street Art Fair LA is going down this week at Siren Studios on Orange and Santa Monica in Hollywood, probably the biggest collection of street art in Los Angeles since MoCA's acclaimed "Art in the Streets" exhibit in 2011.
