In September, the Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery presents Paul Villinski: Emergency Response Studio, an exhibition that incorporates a Gulfstream trailer, among other elements, to respond to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

In October, the Navaratri Festival of offers several nights of Indian music and dance culminating in one jam-packed weekend. Disfarmer (Everyday Uses for Sight No. 6: Disfarmer), a recent work by visionary puppeteer Dan Hurlin, is the highlight of this year’s Outside the Box theater series.
