-------

Conceived as a practical, accessible, “How to” book, The Bilingual Revolution, the Future of Education is in Two Languages is the story of a movement told through the eyes of parents and educators who founded dual language programs in their schools. All share the belief that bilingual education is a public good that can positively transform a child, a school, a community, and even a country.

Although the roots of bilingual education in the United States can be traced back to the 17th century, a new phenomenon is emerging, with three objectives. First, to embrace families’ and communities’ own cultures and promote their linguistic heritages as important parts of our society’s greater international mosaic. Second, to help facilitate community re-engagement with public schools. And third, to promote a social, economic, and cultural sense of community and help bridge gaps that continue to divide us to this day.

New York City provides the backdrop for the book, where parents have fought for access to various bilingual public school programs from preschool to high school. With the involvement of educators and families at all levels, these programs transform schools and empower communities in unprecedented ways. Similar programs have developed in hundreds of cities in the United States and around the world.

The Bilingual Revolution tells the story of successes and setbacks through vignettes of parents and educators who created free, high-quality bilingual programs, and inspired others to do the same. In their diversity, these portraits paint a picture of a viable 21st century solution to preserve linguistic heritage and to raise a generation of young bilingual, bi-literate, multicultural citizens of the world.

The book will inspire and engage individuals who seek to create their own bilingual programs. Being bilingual can become the new norm, and it starts with our youth. A bilingual revolution has started, and it is for the common good.

About Styles $ Storytellers Vol. 1  Exhibit through June 30, 2017

Styles & Storytellers is the first installment of a series of exhibits and artist talks created by artist J.T. Liss. 4 unique artists, 4 unique styles, 4 completely different stories about their lives and work. Featuring Marthalicia Matarrita (muralist, painter), Jeff Henriquez (Photorealist painter & muralist), Misha Tyutyunik (muralist, painter) & J.T. Liss (Photographic Artist), “Styles & Storytellers” focuses on the power that storytelling in art can have in changing our worldviews. Each artist is intentional in their work and in the message they want to convey. In this exhibit you will not hear any artist respond with “What do you think this piece is about?” In “Styles & Storytellers” you will be drawn in by the beauty of the work and sparked by a conversation that may change the way you see the world. For if a new thought can enter the mind, even for the briefest of moments, then change has a chance. Come join us and be part the conversation. 

J.T. Liss (@JTLissPhotoArt)
J.T. Liss is an East Harlem based photographic artist, poet and educator. His work combines multiple layers, sometimes up to 31 different photographs merged together, to create hidden imagery and symbolism that reflect society, religion, love and the universe around and within us. 

Jeff Henriquez (@jartista)

As a portrait artist of the mundane, I get my inspiration from the pedestrian icons you see every day walking around Brooklyn, Chinatown, Bronx or the lower east side of Manhattan, but which are often ignored by most people. Mail boxes, abandoned call boxes, and old pay phones are some of my favorites. I find the beauty in the “vandalism“, and bring these objects into focus to slow down time and make the viewer stop and exist quietly in the chaos of the marks left on them. 

Marthalicia Matarrita (@marthalicia)
Matarrita Born and raised in Harlem, New York City. Marthalicia has many art disciplines such as drawing, sculpting, painting and creating large murals and is always expanding in new mediums. Current area of art dialogue is based on educating the harmony between animals and humans, in many unique presentations. 

Misha Tyutyunik (@mdot_season)

A Message from the Artist:

This is not a fashion show.

This is not an art exhibit.

This is the process of creating magnified times 22.

This show is for the cool kid. the hipster. the artist. the creative wight who can't be put into a certain genre or box. This is a show for the poet. the singer. the writer. the black and white, no grey thinker. the black and white makes grey thinker. the realist. the dreamer. the fashionista/fashionisto. the dandies. the stylist. the unisex thinkers. the painter. the designer. the writer. the social media maven. the worker. the person who lives.

If you fit these descriptions or feel those are all boxes; come to this presentation.

I am an artist who went on a soul hiatus only to rediscover me. This is what came out of it.

See you soon.

xoox.

Where else to celebrate his birthday than Harlem, where his music became so famous in the 20's. He defined that generation and gave it a sound. 

Duke just happened to be there at the right time of the Harlem Renaissance and was the best at what he did. The Harlem Renaissance was led by intellectuals of every field and Duke was one of them.

Selecting from his repertoire -that is internationally heralded as one of the greatest in Jazz - the Quartet will play only his compositions. Each musician - a bandleader in his own right - will be featured in the one hour concert.

The James Weidman and the Spiritual Impressions Ensemble

The James Weidman and the Spiritual Impressions Ensemble

La Maison d'Art is honored to host a very special evening of Improvisations & Impressions of the Slave Songs by James Weidman and the Spiritual Impressions Ensemble.

James Weidman- piano, Ruth Naomi Floyd- vocals, Anthony Nelson- reeds, Harvie S - Bass, Steve Williams- Drums

The Slave Songs or Spirituals were a genre of music created by enslaved Black people during the turbulent period of the 19th century. This poignant music was both an expression of devotion to their God and an expressed longing for freedom from the state of bondage. These two concepts were not mutually exclusive. Just as in the scriptures, where God delivered the Israelites from Egypt-land and Daniel from the lion's den, surely this same God would deliver every man, woman and child from the inhuman servitude that existed in the south.

The Spirituals is music whose tones and rhythms range from the jubilant to the mournful from song to song. In the 20th century Black church, these songs were often included as part of devotional services that preceded the actual Sunday Service. They were often sung during communion and baptisms.

They were sung by choirs in arrangements by Black composers trained in the European classical music tradition. The musical testaments that evoke from these collections of songs serve as windows of not just an exclusive history of African-Americans but indeed, part of the shared history of all Americans.
