The 1982 Louisiana Tech Lady Techsters basketball team, winner of the inaugural NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament

 
On view May 13 to September 4 at the New-York Historical Society is Title IX: Activism On and Off the Field, a new exhibition that commemorates the 50th anniversary of Title IX. This groundbreaking legislation that reshaped womens’ sports in America was an addition to the Education Amendments Act of 1972 that prohibited discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive federal assistance.

Title IX is Best known for its twin flashpoints of sports and sexual harassment. The exhibition traces its evolution through the work of those whose personal and professional experiences with sex discrimination in education and federal government agencies made them advocates for Title IX. There are personal items, photographs, and a re-creation of a campus kiosk advertising Take Back the Night demonstrations over the last 30 years, which in the 70’s became the first worldwide movement to combat sexual violence.

Surf + Turf

 

SALT + SNOW FAMILY AND FOUNDERS

Salt + Snow is a new sport apparel e-commerce site curated and targeted to the ski, surf, and outdoor adventure loving woman. Co-founded by “Chief Adventurists” and friends, Kathy Thomas and Sara Zilkha, the site is designed to be an online marketplace and gathering spot for the female athlete — that beyond shopping is an insider’s guide to the travel, gear, food, and lifestyle that accompanies these sports.

Kathy and Sara met as fellow moms with kids at the same school in NYC. Picked to work on the school auction together, they were joined at the hip for a year, and so successful as a team that they went on to chair the event for 3 years. During that time Kathy invited Sara on a surf trip, a passion she had discovered in her 40’s. It imbued in Sara the same love of the sport. They kept their friendship and surf trips going, even after Sara moved to Aspen with her family.

It was on one of these surf trips that Salt + Snow was conceived. It began as a conversation about their shared obsession for adventure travel. For Kathy it was surf and ski, and for Sara it was other outdoor sports. Both were the types who would plan trips for their friends. In fact, Kathy had been organizing active vacations she called “Chicks on Sticks” for mountain adventures, and “Out the Back” for surfing. Read More

 

Something Seedy

 

Missing those Crunchy Carbs? Look no further than these seedy snacks! Pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, flax, and chia seeds are loaded with protein, fiber, and those healthy Omega-3 fats, as well as vitamins and minerals. Plus, they are low in carbs, gluten-free, and keto-friendly.

Certain seeds like sesame and flax, have unique health benefits. They are high in lignans, which act as powerful antioxidants. In fact, sesame seeds are the best known dietary source of lignans, which along with the fiber and Omega-3 fats, can help reduce cholesterol, blood pressure, inflammation, and other risk factors for heart disease. Other seeds like pumpkin and sunflower are high in magnesium which can help stabilize blood sugar levels.

Then you have chia seeds which are one of the best fuel sources for endurance athletes. They expand up to ten times their original size when soaked in water, and form a gel-like substance that slows the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar to fuel the body longer. With their extreme absorbency, they also help prevent dehydration. Read More

Mountain Lines

 

SOHEI NISHINO | MOUNTAIN LINE, MOUNT FUJI, 2022

Now on view at Michael Hoppen Gallery is the newest mountainscape by Sohei Nishino, Mountain Line, Mount Fuji, 2022. It is a follow up his 2019 work to Mountain Lines, Everest, created with his signature technique. Nishino combines photography, collage, and psychogeography to create large scale experiential prints of urban and natural landscapes, constructed with thousands of images.

Drawing inspiration from 18th century Japanese mapmaking, Nishino uses photographs as geographical representation, but with a subjective point of view. From a distance, his maps are almost abstract. Each work is pieced together with images of both people and places, and it is not until we examine closer that the full experience unfolds. (Details below) Read More
