University Settlement Camp Theatre
724 Wolcott Avenue, Beacon

Beacon Fairy Walk is a walking theatre production incorporating Beacon’s beautiful landscape. Local artists and community members create a magical path that follows a story set in a hidden Fairy grove within Beacon’s University Settlement Camp.

Eight actors play characters representing different parts of the forest. For example, Spruce is the Fairy of the Trees and keeps watch over the forest while helping the other Fairies stay grounded. The show explores the themes of conflict resolution, finding one’s voice, friendship, and doing what’s right in the face of fear. When the Worry Witches start to steal the fairy dust from the trees, will the Fairies come together to restore the color and magic to Beacon? Come see the show to find out!

Wilensky Gallery
173 10th Avenue
New York, New York 10011

If art is an expression of beauty, then the exquisite minerals at the Wilensky gallery are the highest form of aesthetic that nature has to offer. This fall, set in their Chelsea gallery, Wilensky will exhibit the greatest collection of emerald mineral specimens ever assembled. This breathtaking exhibition will embrace the undeniable transformative power that emeralds hold on the human imagination.

This exhibition is focused on natural emeralds, as found and preserved in specimen and crystal form. By bringing together many of the world’s finest known examples of natural emerald specimens, we can better understand all emerald specimens. Important emerald stones and jewelry can be found in every gem collection around the world.

The significance of having half of the world’s finest known emerald specimens all in one place cannot be overstated. This has never happened in the history of mineral collecting. Wilensky invites the viewer to experience wonder. (more info)
