Morlock’s Mural is a perfect tonic for an ailing arts community.  Her symbolic language is a playful, hypnotic narrative on life, love, gender and strength representing modern Hieroglyphs and a constellation of mixed media sculptures..  Orion, Anubis, Hercules, and Cleopatra are represented along with many of the original sketches and are for sale.

Offering seasonal Italian comfort food to the denizens of the East Village for over 25 years, Pangea means “all earth” and was the name given to the super-continent when all the landmasses on earth were connected some 250 million years ago.  The name accurately depicts its East Village location which has been a melting pot of cultures and ideas for generations.  In addition to its reasonable prices and comfort-style menu, Pangea is known for its vital support of local theaters, dance companies, and non-profit organizations, hosting many film screening parties and opening night theater events.
