MutualArt.com and Beyond

In Uncategorized on March 20, 2009 at 10:16 am

I’ve just found an answer to all our questions (which perhaps speaks to the eventual and inevitable doom of my blog). I’ve found a website that predicts, organizes, and refers all different sort of art world events, organizations, shows, exhibitions (basically everything you could ever think of) to people. It’s awesome! Like amazing! 

Here’s the site: MutualArt.com. and I highly suggest that anyone who cares anything about the museum world – not only in New York but across the world – check this out. I put in a few preferences and it told me all these crazy cool exhibitions to see. And if you sign up right now its freeeeee! They have a trial version thing going on because they’re just launching the site right now. Get in early. 

So with my newfound knowledge of the art world at my fingertips, I’ve discovered this way cool exhibition at Sotheby’s in their 20th Century Design division as a part of the upcoming auction! it was so cool – but then again I’m sort of a furniture junkie. 

The Met

In Manhattan on February 27, 2009 at 11:16 am

The Met could a blog all to itself, so I am just going to touch on some basics that people may or may not know. The Met is located on 5th Ave at 83rd street and is a huge structure with one of the most amazing art collections in the world. It is so big that I am often very overwhelmed by the whole thing. But I’ve just discovered one very crucial detail that makes the Met manageable – it’s FREE (well there is a suggested donation, but for all intents and purposes it’s free). You can see the Egyptian section, you can see the sculpture garden, you can see the Impressionist room but you don’t have to see them all in one trip. Especially if you live on the Upper East Side, this is a great way to see one of the best art collections in the world without devoting a whole day to the endeavor. 

 

Don’t let this museum scare you away. It is so well worth it – and you can’t take a trip to NYC without stopping by.
