After more than 50 years of friction between the two countries, the United States and Cuba have restored embassy relations. On Monday July 20th, we were happy to see the United States reopen its embassy in Havana, while Cuba re-opened its embassy in Washington.

The magical All Ice Cream Day is TODAY when kids of all ages have permission to consume nothing but ice cream for 24 hours in honor of my dad William Maxwell who consumed ice cream like nobodies business.

LTC Junghahn played an important role in bringing the Healing Reenactment and Resiliency Workshop to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst last fall, when Maxwell and a squad of soldiers, consisting of wounded warriors and Army medics, co-directed a reenactment of a rescue after an IED blast.
Maxwell drew scenes from the reenactment in a series of studies for the large scale mural Lazarus in Afghanistan: The Golden Hour.

Holland Carter on Duron Jackson @ The Brooklyn Museum
Museum and Gallery Listings for Feb. 8-14: Holland Cotter
★ Brooklyn Museum: ‘Raw/Cooked: Duron Jackson’ (closes on Sunday) As part of the museum’s initiative for showing work of under-known Brooklyn artists, Duron Jackson, based in Bedford-Stuyvesant, has produced a lean, strong, subtle installation linking the historical African slave trade with the present incarceration of African Americans in the United States. A large chair — A throne? An easy chair? An electric chair? — made of stacked-up dominoes sits in the center of the space, surrounded by drawings, seemingly abstract, of prison floor plans. The whole black-and-white ensemble is surveilled by a larger-than-life-size 1928 bronze bust by Malvina Hoffman, “Senegalese Soldier.” An image of a black combatant from an African country that was a prime source of slaves, he is here both guard and captive. 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, (718) 638-5000, brooklynmuseum.org.
