ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Children’s museums around the world are offering programs to support their communities during the COVID-19 crisis. Through its Museums Mobilize initiative, the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) has documented 167 programs in service to children and families from 78 children’s museums in 34 states and four countries.

«Most children’s museums closed their buildings in March 2020, and only just over half are currently open to physical visits by the public,» said ACM Executive Director Laura Huerta Migus. «For the past year, children’s museums have created and transformed their work to continue to support children and families, in the face of unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.»

An analysis of Museums Mobilize programming shows key trends among the programs offered, including partnerships with schools to provide space for students’ in-person, hybrid, or virtual learning; webinar series to provide guidance for parenting during the pandemic; activity kits to help close the digital divide; and more. Sixty-four percent of these programs include philanthropic partnerships, and 53% involve community partnerships.

In an upcoming webinar on March 4 at 2:00 p.m. ET, ACM will highlight specific children’s museum efforts, united by the theme of addressing food insecurity during the pandemic. Leaders from Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum, and the Children’s Museum of the East End will share how they are exploring activity kits, a local farmer’s market, and a food pantry as innovative strategies to support their communities.

ACM is collecting and sharing Museums Mobilize stories with the hashtag #MuseumsMobilize. View the Museums Mobilize dashboard with key stats at ChildrensMuseums.org/Museums-Mobilize.

We Are All Immigrants: Jazz Reflections on Today’s America

NORTHAMPTON, Mass., Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The lives of immigrants are a dialogue between the memory of what was left behind and the assimilation of new experiences. Perhaps it is their liminality – their sense of simultaneously being ostracized and embraced – that enables these Latin American artists to approach jazz, the most American of art forms, and make it their own.

NORTHAMPTON, Mass., Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The lives of immigrants are a dialogue between the memory of what was left behind and the assimilation of new experiences. Perhaps it is their liminality – their sense of simultaneously being ostracized and embraced – that enables these Latin American artists to approach jazz, the most American of art forms, and make it their own.

In response to the newly introduced immigration reform bill, Third Row Live presents a series of concerts which celebrate the contributions of immigrants and mark a new chapter in our national dialogue. Three revered jazz musicians – Claudia Acuña, Magos Herrera, and Felipe Salles – will bring their respective ensembles to the historic Academy of Music Theatre in Northampton, MA.

Due to pandemic restrictions, each artist will perform to an empty house, yet they will look out from the stage and see the faces of fans from around the world on an interactive video wall. The concerts will be co-presented by Third Row’s international coalition of theatres, festivals, and radio stations who are working together to innovate and sustain the performing arts during this challenging time.

There is no single immigrant narrative, however each of these artists came to the United States to pursue a more expansive, musical career. As Magos Herrra puts it, «Living in New York protects me from my own ignorance.» Each has composed work that examines and reflects upon this uniquely personal journey.

The series begins on March 6th with Chilean vocalist, Claudia Acuña, who arrived in New York at age 20 speaking no English and energized by the dream of appearing in the city’s legendary jazz clubs. «I met my angels and my devils here in New York,» remembers Claudia. Within a few short years, she was signed to Verve Records and gained recognition as one of the most intriguing and original vocalists on the scene.

On April 2nd, the series continues with Mexican vocalist, Magos Herrera. «I never thought of myself as belonging to a single nationality,» says Herrera, «but the Trump era triggered my Latin-Americanism and brought me closer to my roots.» Her recent collaboration with Brooklyn Rider, Dreamers, is a dialogue between a Mexican immigrant absorbing the language of Jazz, and an American string quartet assimilating the works of Ibero-American writers and composers.

The series concludes with Brazilian saxophonist and composer, Felipe Salles, presenting his most recent work, The New Immigrant Experience. Performed by his 19-piece Interconnections Ensemble, this powerful multimedia composition is inspired by the lives of Dreamers, whose stories are woven throughout. The day will also feature a conversation between Salles and a panel of immigration rights activists. «You’re creating a new identity. It’s a process to accept that you are neither and both at the same time,» remarks Felipe Salles, «the art becomes the story of your life».

Felipe Salles performance is presented in partnership with Blues to Green and Next Stage Arts and is funded in part by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies.

ABOUT THIRD ROW LIVE: Live performance was one of the first casualties of the pandemic and it may be one of the last areas to recover. Third Row is a global coalition of over 50 presenters working together to sustain the performing arts during this uncertain time while re-imagining a more equitable future for artists, presenters, and audiences alike. Third Row traverses genres and geographies to present digital experiences which might otherwise be inaccessible to a global audience. From social-justice based a capella group Sweet Honey in the Rock, to renowned jazz guitarist Stephane Wrembel, to a day of flamenco broadcast from the foothills of the Spanish mountains; Third Row Live is on a quest to connect audiences and presenters through innovative, interactive digital events.

ABOUT BLUES TO GREEN: Blues to Green uses music to build community, celebrate culture, and catalyze social and environmental change. Programs include the Springfield Jazz & Roots Festival and the Charles Neville Legacy Project. Blues to Green brings musicians of color into public schools and uses music to animate the history and literature of the African diaspora. Our annual Jazz & Roots Festival presents regional, national, and international musical acts and provides a platform for spoken-word, youth arts groups, and environmental and social justice nonprofits.

ABOUT NEXT STAGE ARTS: Founded in 2010, Next Stage serves Southeastern Vermont as a regional cultural hub, arts producer, and instigator of meaningful cultural experiences. As the only multi-discipline, year-round presenter in the region, Next Stage serves an ecosystem composed of community, artists and presenters to expose our region to a vast array of cultural ideas. Located in the landmark 1841 former church on Kimball Hill, Next Stage is a performing arts and community center serving as the new anchor for Putney’s re-emerging downtown. Putney, VT (population 2,600) had been hollowed out by Hurricane Irene and two major fires, and Next Stage was conceived as a way to rebuild the community.

HONOLULU, Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — In a year that tested the airline industry, Hawaiian Airlines held on to its top spot as the nation’s most punctual carrier. For the 17th consecutive year, Hawaiian has enjoyed the best on-time performance record with 87.5 percent of its flights arriving on time last year, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Hawaii’s hometown airline began its on-time performance streak in 2004.

«I couldn’t be prouder of our team members for overcoming the most challenging year in our industry’s history to ensure our guests continued to enjoy our leading on-time reliability,» said Peter Ingram, president and CEO at Hawaiian Airlines. «My mahalo goes out to each member of our ‘ohana for their dedication to our guests during these exceptionally trying times.»

In 2020, as a result of suppressed demand and travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Hawaiian operated a reduced flight network and suspended most of its international routes. As the state of Hawai’i reopens for travel, Hawaiian has gradually resumed nonstop service connecting the islands with 13 U.S. gateway cities, more than any other airline, and restarted flights between Honolulu and Japan and South Korea. In March and April, Hawaiian will launch four new North America routes, including nonstop service between Honolulu and Austin, Ontario, Calif. and Orlando, as well as daily nonstop service between Long Beach and Maui.

About Hawaiian Airlines

Hawaiian® has led all U.S. carriers in on-time performance for each of the past 17 years (2004-2020) as reported by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Consumer surveys by Condé Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure and TripAdvisor have placed Hawaiian among the top of all domestic airlines serving Hawai’i.

Now in its 92nd year of continuous service, Hawaiian is Hawai’i’s biggest and longest-serving airline. Hawaiian offers nonstop flights within the Hawaiian Islands, between Hawai’i and more U.S. gateway cities (16) than any other airline, as well as service connecting the islands with Japan and South Korea. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hawaiian has temporarily suspended service in Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa and Tahiti.

The airline is committed to the health and safety of its guests and employees and has reinforced enhanced cleaning procedures across its business. While the experience may be a little different, the authentic Hawaiian hospitality remains unchanged.

Sneaker Culture Merges into the Fast Lane

PLANO, Texas, Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — What happens when sneakerheads get ahold of a luxury sport sedan? RTFKT creative collective and Lexus teamed up to find out.

PLANO, Texas, Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — What happens when sneakerheads get ahold of a luxury sport sedan? RTFKT creative collective and Lexus teamed up to find out.

To celebrate the launch of the 2021 Lexus IS, RTFKT reveals its one-of-one shoe featuring design elements inspired by the IS 350 F Sport Dynamic Handling Package. From its athletic stance and slimmer headlights to its carbon fiber spoiler and bold color schemes, the IS drove the creative team to design RTFKT’s first pair of footwear inspired by and partly constructed from vehicle materials.

«We wanted to make sure when the audience looks at the sneaker they instantly know it is the IS,» said Chris Le, creative director and co-founder of RTFKT. «All the intricate design elements come together, and at a first glance it’s a neckbreaker,» added Steven Zaptio, CEO and co-founder of RTFKT.

The RTFKT team first selected a base with a sole closely resembling a tire for their custom silhouette. Features on the front are shaped like the vehicle’s signature spindle grille, with 3D printed material imitating the carbon fiber spoiler of the car. The sides of the sneaker showcase Black NuLuxe with light gray stitching from the seats, with a middle silver stripe inspired by the details of the headlights. The team added an F SPORT branded tag on the side and a Lexus badge covering the top Velcro strap. Lastly, they selected a vibrant blue hue for the sneaker that most closely resembles Grecian Water, a new color for Lexus in 2021.

RTFKT and entertainment media company Complex documented the sneaker creation process in a three-part video series, «Rubber & Sole,» now live on Complex.com. In first episode the team is challenged to create a bespoke shoe inspired by the 2021 Lexus IS. Zaptio and Le take notes, from its newly designed spindle grill down to its NuLuxe interior, using the vehicle as their muse. The second video shows the ideation of the sneaker, from sketching designs to prototyping and materials sourcing. The third and final episode – debuting today – showcases the final details of the sneaker and explains how it is derived from the IS.

This partnership is part of the  «All In» campaign for the new 2021 Lexus IS, where the automaker celebrates those who fully embrace their passions, while showcasing its own obsession: an unapologetically pure sport sedan.

«RTFKT put the same passion into developing this one-of-a-kind shoe that we did in developing the new 2021 Lexus IS,» said Vinay Shahani, vice president of Lexus marketing. «Steven and Chris delivered a head-turning sneaker that unmistakably mirrors the bold design and impressive performance of the IS.»

Founded by Zaptio and Le, RTFKT is a global collective of designers merging next-gen gaming and sneaker culture and works with more than 150 3D artists to create its designs. The studio focuses on one-of-a-kind creations, from color-changing sneakers made from futuristic materials to digital-only virtual collectibles. Their special edition sneaker inspired by the 2021 Lexus IS sport sedan will not be available for sale.

«We wanted to make sure when the audience looks at the sneaker they instantly know it is the IS,» said Chris Le, creative director and co-founder of RTFKT. «All the intricate design elements come together, and at a first glance it’s a neckbreaker,» added Steven Zaptio, CEO and co-founder of RTFKT.

The RTFKT team first selected a base with a sole closely resembling a tire for their custom silhouette. Features on the front are shaped like the vehicle’s signature spindle grille, with 3D printed material imitating the carbon fiber spoiler of the car. The sides of the sneaker showcase Black NuLuxe with light gray stitching from the seats, with a middle silver stripe inspired by the details of the headlights. The team added an F SPORT branded tag on the side and a Lexus badge covering the top Velcro strap. Lastly, they selected a vibrant blue hue for the sneaker that most closely resembles Grecian Water, a new color for Lexus in 2021.

RTFKT and entertainment media company Complex documented the sneaker creation process in a three-part video series, «Rubber & Sole,» now live on Complex.com. In first episode the team is challenged to create a bespoke shoe inspired by the 2021 Lexus IS. Zaptio and Le take notes, from its newly designed spindle grill down to its NuLuxe interior, using the vehicle as their muse. The second video shows the ideation of the sneaker, from sketching designs to prototyping and materials sourcing. The third and final episode – debuting today – showcases the final details of the sneaker and explains how it is derived from the IS.

This partnership is part of the  «All In» campaign for the new 2021 Lexus IS, where the automaker celebrates those who fully embrace their passions, while showcasing its own obsession: an unapologetically pure sport sedan.

«RTFKT put the same passion into developing this one-of-a-kind shoe that we did in developing the new 2021 Lexus IS,» said Vinay Shahani, vice president of Lexus marketing. «Steven and Chris delivered a head-turning sneaker that unmistakably mirrors the bold design and impressive performance of the IS.»

Founded by Zaptio and Le, RTFKT is a global collective of designers merging next-gen gaming and sneaker culture and works with more than 150 3D artists to create its designs. The studio focuses on one-of-a-kind creations, from color-changing sneakers made from futuristic materials to digital-only virtual collectibles. Their special edition sneaker inspired by the 2021 Lexus IS sport sedan will not be available for sale.
