Women Make Space
In celebration of Women's History Month, the Southampton Arts Center and the American Institute of Architecture's Peconic chapter are co-presenting "Making Space: Five Women Changing the Face of Architecture," a 2014 documentary directed by Ultan Guilfoyle. It will be shown at the center Thursday evening at 6.

The featured architects are Annabelle Selldorf (New York), Farshid Moussavi (London), Odile Decq (Paris), Marianne McKenna (Toronto), and Kathryn Gustafson (Seattle and London). They are seen both inside and out of their work environments, each telling her own story, without script or narration. 

Commentary is also offered by Paul Goldberger, the Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic; Paola Antonelli, the Museum of Modern Art's senior curator of architecture and design; Peter Reed, a former MoMA curator, and Meryl Streep.

Tickets are $20, $15 for members of the arts center and A.I.A.

Vocal Workshop

Singers of all levels and in all musical genres have been invited to take part. The goal of the Libero Canto approach to singing is to free people "from physical, emotional, or mental constraints, so that they can make music through singing with ease, grace, vitality, and joy," according to the school's website.
