Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York’s Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe, and Gloria the hippo – have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape – with the help of some prodigious penguins – to explore the world.

The Center’s arts education programs for youth inspire the creativity in children; strengthen the family bond; and grow awareness of the arts as an essential resource in a child’s social development and academic success. Research shows that children who participate regularly in the arts improve their attention span, learn more quickly, and develop higher level critical thinking skills. They also have fun.
