Gilding the Coasts: Art and Design of Long Island’s Great Estate Era @ Long Island Museum
Jun 26 – Oct 25 all-day

From the late 1870s until the World War II years, well over 1,000 estates were built across Nassau and Suffolk counties, thoroughly reshaping the lives of wealthy and working-class residents alike. These palaces and properties of diverse design represented the country’s best achievements in architecture, interior decorating, and landscape design. Gilding the Coasts: The Art & Design of Long Island’s Great Estates will explore the collaborative efforts, fertile creativity, and innovative work that were critical ingredients forging Long Island’s great estates.

The exhibition will emphasize artistic production, in both the significant path-breaking work that was done on estates by a wide array of artisans, and in the art that was commissioned and inspired by the great estate movement itself. Artifact-rich case studies of specific Long Island estates will include architect Stanford White’s house Box Hill, in St. James; artist and designer Louis Comfort Tiffany’s magnificent Laurelton Hall, in Cold Spring Harbor; and muralist and canvas painter William de Leftwich Dodge’s Villa Francesca, in Setauket. In each instance, these residences moved beyond their use as country home retreats for restful entertaining. From their conception to their meticulous design, construction, and eventual daily use, these were fascinating working laboratories that facilitated the extension of their owner’s innovative artistic legacies.

Edgar Degas of Dandies, Ballerinas, and Woman Ironing @ Nassau County Museum of Art
Jul 25 – Nov 8 all-day

July 25-November 8, 2015

30-minute documentary, 2011
Tuesday-Saturday:* Screenings at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m.
Sunday:* 11 a.m. & 12 p.m.
*with exceptions for special programs

Edgar Degas of Dandies, Ballerinas, and Woman Ironing
This documentary follows the trail of the painter Edgar Degas through nocturnal Paris at the turn of the century, in the Paris Opera and the concert cafes. Edgar Degas, the son of an Italian banker, had stopped studying law to become a painter. Degas was a brilliant portraitist, but even more than this he loved to paint the dynamics of movement in horse races, to sketch the milliners on the boulevards, to depict with his paintbrush or pastel crayons the young women who worked as laundresses and water-carriers. Similar to but unique within the Impressionist art movement he helped to start, his art captured the fleeting moments of movement and light in the flow of modern life.

Miguel’s creamy vocals to form a sound that was absent from the radio and established Miguel
as one of the most unique and soulful voices in modern R&B. The album also features ‘Sure
Thing,’ which hit #1 on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B chart and second US #1 ‘Quickie.’ Miguel’s
follow up was his critically-acclaimed, four-time Grammy Award nominated, sophomore album
‘Kaleidoscope Dream’ (Sony Music Aust), which features his third US #1 hit single ‘Adorn,’ the intoxicating ‘How Many Drinks?’, ‘Do You…’ and ‘The Thrill.’ In 2013 Miguel was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards. Lead single ‘Adorn,’ written and produced by Miguel, garnered Miguel his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and resided at #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart for more than 23 weeks becoming the longest running #1 in the history of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart.

TJ Miller @ The Space At Westbury
Aug 13 @ 8:00 pm

T.J. Miller is one of the most sought after comedians in the comedy world, but not in the drama world, or the finance world. One of Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch,” EW’s “Next Big Things in Comedy.” Most recently, Miller’s voice stars in Disney’s Academy-Award winning animated feature, BIG HERO 6. You may recognize his non-animated face and body from his role in 2014’s surprise indie hit TRANSFORMERS 4, or Mike Judge’s HBO comedy series SILICON VALLEY, which just wrapped shooting its second season. His podcast “Cashing in with T.J. Miller” on nerdist.com is listened to by 12 and ½ people, and he is a nationally touring standup, criss crossing the country listening to Kris Kross (he’s also done shows in the U.K. and Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico did not go well)). He has been performing his absurdist observational standup act for over 10 years, and has never gone to the bathroom in his pants on stage. His hour long Comedy Central stand-up special T.J. MILLER: NO REAL REASON and hip-hop/pop/folk music album “THE EXTENDED PLAY E.P.,” an E.P. with 41 tracks, and the ILLEGAL ART REMIXTAPE are all available now. He hosted Comedy Central’s MASH-UP, a mashup of standup, sketches and visualizations, and has appeared on CHELSEA LATELY more than most women his height. He got his start touring with Second City in Chicago and improvising with Annoyance Theater, iO, and managers at electronics stores asking why he is late and smells like gin. Miller has been in a number of major studio films including CLOVERFIELD, SHE’S OUT OF MY LEAGUE, SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, OUR IDIOT BROTHER, YOGI BEAR 3D (Ranger Jones, his greatest role to date), UNSTOPPABLE, and GET HIM TO THE GREEK. He has appeared on television in THE LEAGUE, CARPOOLERS, GOODWIN GAMES, HAPPY ENDINGS and other canceled programs. Miller also talks like an old drag queen after a hard night of chain smoking, and thus voiced the character ‘Tuffnut’ in the Oscar nominated animated film HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. He voices Robbie from GRAVITY FALLS on Disney and Tuffnut in the Netflix HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON TV series, and GORBURGER, a very strange show you just have to google to understand. He currently resides in Hollywood, California, where he struggles to find meaning in an uncertain world. He is a comedian.
