May 18. Manitoga, the modernist house and studio constructed by industrial designer Russel Wright, is a National Historic Landmark and a center for innovative art and design. This year, the site charts new territory with the launching of an artist residency program, beginning this month with a surround-sound installation by artist Melissa McGill. Titled "Palmas," the work runs through November 10 and features recorded flamenco palmero clapping that will accompany guided visitors at timed intervals. (Composer Ben Neill's Manitoga premieres July 26.) $20, $15 members/students/seniors, $10 children under 12. Tours at 11am and 1:30pm. Garrison, (845) 424-3812; Russelwrightcenter.org.
