Cheap$kate: The best FREE events in New York City this week

Boxers + Ballerinas

Boxers and ballerinas might not seem to have much in common but to photographer John Goodman, both professions show the extremes of what human bodies can handle. In his first New York solo exhibit, Goodman combines his boxing photographs from the 1997 monograph “The Times Square Gym” with a 2004 backstage photo essay of Boston Ballet dancers. See the fusion for yourself at the opening reception tonight from 6 to 8. The exhibit runs through May 31. (Opens tonight, Tues.-Thurs, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sat., 11 a.m.-6 p.m., FREE, Rick Wester Fine Art, 526 W. 26th St., Suite 417, 212-255-5560, rickwesterfineart.com)
