Today we are live from Rockefeller Center in NYc
Throughout the year, the Rockefeller Center Channel Gardens blooms in uniquely themed plant installations that transform with the seasons.
Visit the Channel Gardens to see the April Showers installation on display from April 20 through May 31.
Designed specifically for Rockefeller Plaza, Masks (Pentagon) consists of five masks ranging in height from 14.5 to 16.5 feet, each of which reflects a different approach to the stylized representation of the human face, from the clearly recognizable to the highly abstracted.
The five masks, which were cast from clay in industrial-strength synthetic plaster, stand on a stepped base made from massive beams of unfinished redwood. The back of each element of the sculpture reveals the artists method of construction – a grid-like armature of rebar inlaid with hemp and plaster.
Rockefeller Center is home to a remarkable collection of art deco motifs and sculptures signifying man’s development in spirit, science, industry and more.

Rockefeller shares her inspiring and multi-faceted life with disarming vulnerability. The first woman in her famous family to pen a memoir, Eileen reveals her family's wholesome values and the stark contrast with those often held by the rich and famous, navigating her own identity as she danced around people's perceptions and expectations, and ultimately her pioneering the concept of Emotional Intelligence and the teachings it has spawned.

The loss of her brother Michael made national news. Now Mary Rockefeller Morgan returns to Conversations LIVE to talk with host Cyrus Webb about coping with grief and her new book WHEN GRIEF CALLS FORTH THE HEALING.
On the inaugural edition of History Today, host Paul Angel, the managing editor of The Barnes Review (TBR) history magazine, will be discussing a variety of historical matters with an eye toward how they affect our lives today.
The riots in Ferguson and Baltimore are still on everyone’s mind. The media seems obsessed with giving a forum to disgruntled blacks who are having a hard time admitting that one’s life is what one makes of it. (And one’s culture, as well.) Besides the bugaboos of “white entitlement” and “white racism,” slavery, of course, is the “reason” many blacks use to justify the sad state of the urban areas in which they dwell.
With that in mind, we will be discussing several historical events that deny this narrative.
Hundreds of thousands of Irish were sold into slavery by the British and brought to North America and the Caribbean. The men were literally worked to death, and the women used to produce an army of half-breed slaves. The Irish were the first slaves brought to the New World—not the Africans. But somehow, the Irish overcame this and thrived in America.
Michael Rockefeller, the son of the late Nelson Rockefeller, ventured off to Papua/New Guinea in the last 1950s and early 1960s to collect the art of the head-hunting cannibal Asmat people of the island. What happened to him after that is one of the great missing person’s cases of the 20th century. But now that case has been solved—and it is a shocker.
We will be discussing the black Asmat people and their strange and violent culture which bears an amazing resemblance to the culture of inner-city black America.
With Paul will be his partner in historical crime, Dave Gahary, the host of “Who’s the Bad Guy?”
