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?
Autumn in New York is lionized in the eponymous jazz standard, and its special joys are celebrated in classic films like When Harry Met Sally and Hannah and Her Sisters. Romantics, dreamers, adventurers and wanderers imagine the city at this time of year as the most brilliant place of all. And we can’t say that they’re wrong.
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?
Every year there are restaurant openings that receive so much advanced hype, one wonders how the chef and team can live up to it (remember Lincoln, anyone?). This year’s most talked about New York City opening has to be Missy Robbins’ new pasta-centric restaurant, Misi, which opened its doors in Williamsburg last week. Team Dandelion Chandelier made the pilgrimage, first for “Friends and Family,” and then again during the first week, and we can report that in this case, you can believe the hype. If you love pasta – and who doesn’t? – this is your Emerald City.
