Our current Culture Lounge exhibition Memories Hold, features a film series exploring NY state water-based occupations and travel, as well as the lifecycle of waterfront economies. "Ferry Tales" a film by Katja Esson, was nominated for an Academy Award in 2004.
The film is a sneak peek into a culture that only happens 30 minutes a day in the women's bathroom….a place where no men are allowed. As they put on their make-up, they are transformed from housewives to businesswomen, from mothers to lawyers, from sisters to socialites.The women who step inside this room leave their race, social status and net worth at the door, sharing their most intimate secrets, solving each other’s problems or just dishing up the latest ferry gossip. What starts as funny anecdotes turns into a deep and moving account as these women, one by one, draw each other out, solve one another’s problems and dish up the latest ferry gossip.This is a story of the vibrant life that goes unnoticed in a place that goes ignored.

Snug Harbor Cultural Center, in partnership with The Vanderbilt Republic, is pleased to present the second of two live productions as response and investigation of εὖτόπος (“Eutopia”) — a large-scale art installation by Sabrina Barrios, Sarah E. Brook, Charles Heppner, Carlton Scott Sturgill, TAXIPLASM, TJ Volonis & Dale Williams — on view until 11 September 2016 at the Main Hall, Hyphen over Shinbone Alley, Newhouse Galleries and Chinese Scholar’s Garden on Snug Harbor’s 83-acre campus at 1000 Richmond Terrace.
A better world is ours for the making and the tools to do the job already exist: what remains is to dispel the illusion that the work belongs to anyone but ourselves. THE EUTOPIA CONFERENCE is an opportunity to engage with the process and practice of seven emergent contemporary artists in an historic atmosphere.
The Conference will feature transmedia talks by the visual artists of εὖτόπος, followed by all-new site-specific performances by Bare Opera × Floating Opera, Chris Herde and International Brazilian Opera to celebrate the closing of this landmark exhibition. 2-channel 8K projection & 4-channel audio equipment courtesy Sound Investment A/V.
Join us for a glorious afternoon of celebration, creative inspiration and spectacle amidst rolling fields of gardens, art and history.
