Top picks in the world of art museum exhibits this fall

The start of the autumn sees high culture kick into high gear. And because so many art museums offer free admission, in lots of cases, this is a luxury open to all. Here are over a dozen art museum exhibits opening soon that we would love to see in the fall of 2018 — if time and our travel budget would permit it, we’d visit all of these before the end of November and the beginning of the holiday crush. At least we can dream. How about you? What’s on your list?

Our top picks in the world of art museum exhibits right now

September is an important month in the world of the visual arts – it’s a time of transition, and an ideal moment to explore. The blockbuster museum exhibits of summer are closing soon, and a number of new significant exhibitions and museums have just opened. Of course you know about Heavenly Bodies and We Come in Peace at the Met in New York (closing on October 8 and 28, respectively, so don’t wait if you haven’t seen them yet). Here are over a dozen other art museum exhibits currently on view that we would love to see — if time and our travel budget would permit it, we’d visit all of these in the next few weeks. Are you in?

why the ferry is the best way to get to martha’s vineyard

There are a handful of ways to get to the island of Martha’s Vineyard for vacation: private jet, private boat, commercial airline, commercial ferry or public ferry. Of these, in our humble opinion, the best mode of transportation by far is the Steamship Authority’s ferry service. It’s reasonably inexpensive, punctual, and wildly entertaining. Most importantly, it’s a vital, communal part of the iconic experience of a vacation on the Vineyard. We once read a quote from someone in an interview who said “when the ferry pulls into view of the island, I feel as excited as I did as kid on Christmas morning.” We couldn’t agree more. It’s the ultimate micro-luxury.
