Judith Burton is Named TC’s Macy Professor of Education
“I’m deeply grateful to be given this great honor, and it’s particularly significant because I spend all my time in a building endowed by the Macy family and in a gallery that carries their name – so it’s almost as if it’s coming home,” Burton said. “As far as I know, I’m also the first person in the arts to be thus honored at TC. It allows me to be a reflection of TC’s support and appreciation for the centrality of the... arts as part of the educational process.”

Basquiat grew up in Park Slope, East Flatbush, and Boerum Hill so the Brooklyn Museum seems a natural place for "One Basquiat" - a display of his single, most valuable work of art.

Join us this Sunday: Maker Space Open House
We are a new maker space that hosts high school students taking robotics classes. The space is a collaboration between NYC FIRST Robotics and Cornell Tech. It’s been an amazing project and we get to work with some truly inspirational students.
We are having an open house this SUNDAY on Roosevelt Island (544 Main St. NY, NY 10044)!...
Please join us from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. There will be student run workshops where you can make laser cut keychains, cricut vinyl stickers, and 3D printed pins. Also our high school robotics teams will also be showing off their robots (you might even be able to drive one) and the personal projects they are working on.
Come check it out. Should be fun for adults and kids of all ages.

Did you meet your art twin? Well not in the State of Illinois and the State of Texas. Each State won't say why. Perhaps it is their tough laws on biometric identification.
