The Paper Bag Players Workshop

Hamilton Fish Park Library, 415 East Houston Street

3:30 p.m., Free

The goal of the Workshops is for each participant to experience The Paper Bag Players approach to creating and performing theater -- essentially each participant becomes a Paper Bag Players. Each session will deal with the elements that make this company most famous: original and fanciful narrative plays, a dynamic interactive approach to the audience, the use of paper and cardboard to create compelling stage effects and costumes, creating comedy that children respond to, movement as an element of storytelling, and music as the connecting tissue that holds the shows together.

Intimate Science

Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery, 2 W. 13th St.

12 ? 6 p.m., Free

Intimate Science features artists who are engaged in non-disciplinary inquiry; they aren't allied to the customs of any single field, and therefore have license to reach beyond conventions. This kind of practice hinges on up-close observation, experiential learning, and inventing new ways for the public to participate in the process. And through their engagement with "intimate science," a more knowledgeable public might well be able to influence what research is supported and adopted by the larger culture, and the walls of science can become more transparent.

Bright! Colors in Three Dimensions

Brookfield Place, Lobby, 250 Vesey Street

8 a.m. - 6 p.m., Free

With the advent of digital and commercial technology, it has become easier to take the power of color for granted in two-dimensional mediums. The artists use color as a foundation for the entire object, rather than the decorative finish to the piece. The power of these works lies in their ability to utilize light and physical form to shape our interpretation of color and its reflection on meaning and personal expression.
