Lecture: Ralph Sessions: “The Shipcarver's Art,” at American Folk Art Museum, 6 PM

“Back when the South Street Seaport was bustling with maritime trade instead of a touristic swarm of chain food, shipcarvers cut mermaids, wind-swept ladies, mythical sea creatures, and other figures for the fronts of vessels and the area stores. Ralph Sessions' lecture on this lost 19th century art-form will likely make you nostalgic for a nautical past that was never yours.” — Allison Meier

“Emerging playwright Moze Halperin transforms a Greenpoint coffee shop into a petri dish of fetid desire and arcane perversity in this site-specific tranche de vie. Halperin and a cast of young actors -- Lauren Friedlander, Max Silver, Hannah Finn, and Halperin himself among them-- mine our simulacural, media-saturated culture for absurdist humor and Portlandia-style acerbity. The play is free, though ordering something from the cafe is encouraged.” — Chloe Wyma
