If You Love Fashion, Check Out The Museum of Modern Art’s: “Items: Is Fashion Modern?”
Midtown’s fabulous Museum of Modern Art is having an exhibit dedicated entirely to fashion for the first time in more than seven decades, which is running through January 28th, 2018. “Items: Is Fashion Modern?” looks at 100+ types of clothing and accessories that have had an impact on society in terms of politics, economics, style, technology, and culture. From trench coats to FitBits, you’ll likely recognize a lot of items you have hanging in your own closet right now, making it a very accessible exhibit to all – not just those with a keen interest in fashion or art.
The Details: The exhibition is free with a ticket to the MoMA, which is $25 for adults, $18 for seniors, $14 for students, and free for children under 16 and members. The museum is free for everyone Friday evenings from 4pm to 8pm.
If You Love The Classics, Check Out The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s: “Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer”
The Upper East Side’s glorious Metropolitan Museum of Art is showing “Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer” through February 12th, 2018. Michelangelo is somewhat of a legend in the art history world, but even if you’ve never taken a single art class, we’re guessing you’ve still seen or heard of a few key pieces credited to him. Does the Sistine Chapel or Statue of David in Italy ring a bell?
The MET is currently exhibiting over 130 of his works, showcasing everything from his earliest paintings and sketches to marble sculptures. It’s a rare treat to be able to see this much of his art in one place, so take every advantage of this opportunity! Glenwood residents living at The Marlowe will find they don’t even get a little cold between the time they leave their building and when they arrive at the museum… it’s literally that close!
The Details: The exhibition is free with museum entrance to the MET, which greatly welcomes a contribution of $25 for adults, $17 for seniors, $12 for students, and free for members, patrons, and children under 12 years old.
If You Love NYC History, Check Out The Tenement Museum’s: “Under One Roof”
Located Downtown, The Tenement Museum has opened a new exhibition, “Under One Roof,” which will be on an open-ended run. The exhibit takes a look at the residents who lived at 103 Orchard Street after World War II, including families of Holocaust survivors, as well as immigrants from Puerto Rico and China, and what their lives living there looked like on a daily basis. This exhibit is a must-see for anyone interested in either history or what NYC living looked like generations ago!
Since you’ll be going into the actual tenement where these families lived, it’s a very hands-on tour. Speaking of tour, it’s good to note that tickets to the museum include a guided tour – this is not a museum which you can peruse on your own. Glenwood residents living at Liberty Plaza and other downtown buildings will find this a convenient and fun way to spend a morning or afternoon!
The Details: The exhibit is included with museum entrance, which is $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and students, and free for members.
