SINGIN' IN THE RAIN

Frequently regarded as the best film musical ever made, Singin' in the Rain is a 1952 American musical-romantic comedy film directed and choreographed by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen, starring Kelly, Donald O'Connor, and Debbie Reynolds. It offers a lighthearted depiction of Hollywood in the late 1920s, with the three stars portraying performers caught up in the transition from silent films to "talkies".

Join us at dusk for a screening under the moonlight in the Lower East Side's favorite park. Admission is free, but don't forget a blanket or a chair. Make it a night out and pack a picnic, or just snack on the free Metrograph popcorn during the film. The movie starts at dusk, but may be canceled in case of rain.

Public Art Discussion: The Future of Chinatown

In this discussion, we will explore Chinatown as an enclave for immigrants; the specifics of Manhattan’s Chinatown as well as Chinatowns as a nation-wide network.

What is the future of Chinatown? Who are the shareholders? What are their goals? Who writes its future? What are Chinatown’s less visible social infrastructure and social networks? Is Chinatown representative of changes in other neighborhoods and immigrant communities? 

Organized by Andrew Shiue (Beyond Chinatown) and Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong. This program is in conjunction with Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong's public artwork Constellation

This exhibition is made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly v isible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.

March of the Penguins

There's no place like Seward Park..on a summer evening

At the end of each Antarctic summer, the emperor penguins of the South Pole journey to their traditional breeding grounds in a fascinating mating ritual that is captured in this documentary by intrepid filmmaker Luc Jacquet. The journey across frozen tundra proves to be the simplest part of the ritual, as after the egg is hatched, the female must delicately transfer it to the male and make her way back to the distant sea to nourish herself and bring back food to her newborn chick.

Puppet Mobile: Cindarella Samba

The CityParks PuppetMobile will visit Seward Park Sunday May 21, 2017 at 11 am.

Free!

Returning to the PuppetMobile stage for the first time since its highly acclaimed debut in 2007, Cinderella Samba is a contemporary twist on the classic “Cinderella” fairy tale. The CityParks PuppetMobile production sets the timeless tale in the lush landscape of Brazil, where, thanks to the help of her fairy godmother, Cinderella attends Rio de Janeiro's biggest Carnaval gala and dances the samba with Prince Paulo himself. After Cinderella is forced to flee the gala just before midnight, the prince sets out to find the mystery woman who stole his heart, in hopes of marrying her.   

The lively production features an original commissioned musical soundtrack that brings samba center-stage; handcrafted Carnaval festival floats on parade; and one-of-a-kind marionettes donning their most vibrant Carnaval costumes, created by the expert puppeteers from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre in Central Park.

Parks Without Borders Scoping Session

A very important meeting where members of the public -- users of Seward Park -- can speak about their ideas for the park. It is very important that the community -- people of all ages and ethnicities -- make their priorities known at this meeting.
