David Hilliard: Intimacies
David Hilliard: Intimacies explores the work of the Boston-based photographer who makes large-format color images of people, interiors, and landscapes. Hilliard’s works probe how we know other individuals and ask important questions about how place, memory, and time affect our interior thoughts. Hilliard is presented by Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York and Carroll and Sons Art Gallery in Boston.

Jobsite Theater presents All New People
It’s the dead of winter, and the summer vacation getaway of Long Beach Island, N.J., is desolate and blanketed in snow. Charlie is 35, heartbroken and just wants some time away from the rest of the world. The island ghost-town seems to be the perfect escape until his solitude is interrupted by a motley parade of misfits who show up and change his plans. Intended for mature audiences.

Sea Lion Splash, a Limited Engagement, sponsored by Seal Swim School
A limited-time exhibition — Sea Lion Splash — is coming this spring! This fun-filled family attraction will feature a colony (or raft) of coastal sea lions along with daily splashes (shows). While the sea lions charm the audience, guests will learn about the variety of life along the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America, and conserving natural habitats for these charismatic creatures. Just beyond the splash zone, there’s fun in the sun with giant inflatables (bounces and slides), a specialty gift shop, and pool party-inspired food and beverage. It’s a sea of fun for everyone!
