RiverArts® Presents -Urban Studio Unbound
Memory Palaces is inspired by Bint-Kadi’s childhood as a first generation Palestinian-Afro-Caribbean American and a daughter of refugees. Bint-Kadi’s work explores the feelings of nostalgia, grief, and yearning often felt by refugees and immigrants as they relocate in search of new homes. Each piece represents an evolution of memories drawn from the past into the present through the Bint-Kadi’s mosaic practice. Bint-Kadi shares, “My Memory Palaces employ mosaic from found objects to evoke the shared experience of nostalgia when thinking of ‘home’ not as a physical place, but as an experience that stirs emotions and bridges cultures and generations.”
Bint-Kadi was named as the 2023 Advancing Equity Artist by ArtsWestchester, recognizing her work as a leader in social justice, equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility through her artistic contributions.
The RiverArts’ Artist Conversation is curated by Marie-Louis Miller, who states, “Home is more than place. We build ‘home’ with people, through food, music, dance and art. And we tell stories to pass ‘home’ down from one generation to the next. With love, precision and artistry, Bint-Kadi creates space for each of us to engage our own sense of home as we reflect on the personal homages set before us in her Memory Palaces.”
Movement Intelligence: Feldenkrais Principles in Practice

By exploring the dynamics of ground forces, weight distribution, and body alignment, you’ll uncover pathways to move more powerfully,
with greater ease and fluidity. By engaging in mindful movement explorations, participants discover subtle adjustments that optimize efficiency, reduce strain, and enhance overall movement quality.
RiverArts® Presents - Strings in the Afternoon: Quintets of Mozart, Bunch, and Montgomery
Artistic Director Peter Seidenberg has assembled an esteemed lineup of musicians for the afternoon, including Phil Setzer, a founding member of the Emerson String Quartet, and Miranda Cuckson on violins, composer and violist Kenji Bunch and Daniel Panner [Mendelssohn String Quartet] on violas, and Mr. Seidenberg on the cello.
From ephemeral to down to earth, RiverArts presents a concert of seemingly contrasting chamber music. Mozart String Quintets offer a profound glimpse into his genius for utilizing old forms to create groundbreaking and deeply innovative works. The two quintets are not just familiar classical Viennese chamber music, but they bring us into the depths of Mozart’s personal world and perhaps show us the future of how he might have composed had he lived longer.
