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?
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?
The Best Bookstores in the World is an occasional series here at Dandelion Chandelier. As we roam the world, we love to check out the interesting bookstores in town. When we really love them, we’ll share them with you. First up? A centuries old shop in the heart of Piccadilly in London. Not every bookstore gets the endorsement of the Queen. But not every bookstore is the original Hatchards.
The Dandelion Chandelier Luxury Diary for The Arts highlights noteworthy events around the world in September 2018 in ballet, modern dance, performance art, classical music, opera and jazz –plus notable new art museum exhibits and installations. For the rest of the Luxury Diary, click here.
We always include the BBC Proms in London on our list of the most important summer classical music festivals each year. We recently attended a marvelous performance, and it was an excellent reminder of why this wonderful annual concert series is cannot-miss if you love music. Or London. Or both.
