• It’s spring break for NYC schools this week, so our education department has put together a bunch of special programs for families, including special workshops in the Art Lab, a reading and activity with artist and children’s book author Hervé Tullet, a reading of What Degas Saw and drawing workshop featuring New York City Ballet dancer Dana Jacobson, and a concert celebrating our new art-inspired CD Pop! Goes the Easel. Space is limited, and sign-up is required. Check program pages for details.

• Tonight, join multimedia artist Lynette Wallworth for Monday Mondays, which includes the New York premiere of Collisions (2016), a 15-minute virtual-reality experience that kicks off this week’s salute to Sundance Institute’s New Frontier 10th Anniversary, Slithering Screens.
