Starring George Plimpton as Himself,” which will have its nationwide broadcast premiere tomorrow at 9 p.m. on PBS and locally on WNET, is a spellbinding film that chronicles the life of a singular man.

Kennedy — and Cambridge University.

  •     Almond Zigmund, an artist who lives in East Hampton and Brooklyn, has a new installation, “Plane Sight,” on view in what seems at first an unlikely location, the Children’s Museum of the Arts in Lower Manhattan. Founded in 1988, the museum occupied a basement space in SoHo that offered kids multiple hands-on art opportunities. Once the museum outgrew that space, it built a new, 10,000-square-foot facility that has enabled it to expand its mission.
