Things To Do This Week: 03.02.2015

NEW YORK

In light of yesterday's snow storm, Paula Hayes' Glazing Globes in Madison Sq. Park are all the more relevant. The artist's work from the early '90s is one reason that round terrariums filled with greenery and crystals have gone mass market. The environmentally-focused artist has moved on from "natural" materials, and her new focus is on manmade objects: Bic lighters, shards of CDs, old electronics parts, and other non-compostable objects are for the looking.

On view until April 19, 2015

MIAMI

The 32nd Miami International Film Festival kicks off this Friday, displaying 100 films from 40 countries. "Tea Time" by director Maite Alberdi is the ultimate movie for ladies who lunch. The documentary takes as its subject a group of six women, friends for over sixty years, who get together religiously each month. It's like "Days of Our Lives" meets "Golden Girls."
