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. 

Museum of Art and Design

In Manhattan on February 6, 2009 at 11:34 am

The MAD Museum or the Museum of Art and Design opened its doors on its new building at 2 Columbus Circle in September of 2008. 

If you are feeling a bit warn out from the high intellectualism that much of contemporary art requires (which I often am), check out this place. There are pieces of furniture and design which are beautiful and a delight to see but don’t require the same sort of brain power and powers of intellectual appreciation.

Here are the opening hours:

Wed. – Sun. 11:00 am to 6:00 pm 
Thurs. 11:00 am to 9:00 pm 
Closed Mon., Tues. & Major Holidays
