@Governors Island

Now open all year round, the amazing green-acre area of Governors Island (catch the Ferry on 10 South Street, Lower Manhattan) is the best place to escape from the city routine (and noise) and connect to Nature. On Saturday, February 26th from 2-5pm, the Trust for Governors Island in partnership with LMCC (Lower Manhattan Cultural Council) will present the 1st Ice Sculpture Show at the Winter Village. Gathering artists, professionals from Okamoto Studios and renowned sculptors, the event will feature live ice carvings and performances, as they will transform gigantic blocks of ice into amusing and inspirational figures. Fun for the whole family the event will award a prize of $2.000 for the winner, chosen by the jury and the public. INFO: www.GovIsland.com

@Miller Theatre

Kicking off its 2022 Jazz series on Saturday March 5th at 8pm, Miller Theatre at Columbia University School of the Arts will present Dezron Douglas Quartet. One of the most respected and active bassists in contemporary jazz, New York-based talented composer Dezron Douglas had already shared his music to great acclaim on the stage of the Miller (located at 2960 Broadway), and now returns with his new project, a Quartet formed by Emilio Modeste and his saxophone, the piano of George Burton and Joe Dyson on the drums. He has also collaborated with such names as Pharoah Sanders and George Cables. Tickets start at $25. INFO: www.MillerTheatre.com

Located at 11 West 53rd Street, The Museum of Modern Arts is bringing back the annual International documentary showcase, Doc Fortnight for in-person screenings with the participation of emerging and established filmmakers from all over the globe. Celebrating its 21st edition, Doc Fortnight 22 features 29 new works in non-fiction, experimental and inventive films chosen from prestigious festivals, and others receiving US and NY premiere. Addressing urgent issues such as social, environmental and political conflicts, the Festival will open with Jenny Perlin’s “Bunker”, and closes with James Benning’s “The United States of America”. Running February 23 thru March 10, the documentaries will also be available virtually. INFO: www.MoMA.org
