Taylor Mac: 1950

The Bard of Democracy, Walt Whitman, will take over the David Rubenstein Atrium as portrayed by performance artist and singer Taylor Mac. Selections from Whitman’s Leaves of Grass will be performed to original musical compositions as well as popular music from the 1850s. This performance is commissioned by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts for Target ® Free Thursdays, and it is part of a 24-hour piece that Taylor Mac is developing on the history of music in America from 1770 to the present. Mac is a dazzling (and bedazzled) performer popular with New York’s demi-monde as well as its more established cabaret scene.

NYC’s top teen poets express themselves through spoken word in the acclaimed Youth Poet Laureate competition, where the first place poet is named NYC’s official Youth Poet Laureate for one year, and earns his or her very own book. The event also kicks off the second year of Lincoln Center Education’s citywide Poet-Linc poetry slam, in which city youth develop their writing and performance skills while competing for prizes and inclusion in Lincoln Center’s anthology of their work, published by Black Dog. This evening will celebrate the release of two books: Poet-Linc Poetry Slam, the first-ever anthology of the Poet-Linc teens from the 2012 competition, and the 2012 Youth Poet Laureate’s work.
