We spent a bulk of the summer months discussing the outdoor movies, the summer drinks and all the art exhibits that seem to pop up in the summer months. Well, with the close of summer comes the end of beach time, the end of days spending countless hours in Central Park and unfortunately, the end of some wonderful art exhibits (Sans Jeff Koons Split Rocker).
It’s a shame that we have to wait almost a full year to wander around New York City, bumping into unique art pieces from up and coming (and very famous artists). Maybe that’s what makes it so special? The fact that we have to wait all year for that time…Well, we’re New Yorkers and do not like waiting for ANYTHING! That is why, we recommend going to check out some great art before the summer really is over (that whole Labor Day thing is such a farce).
Presented below are some things to check out before it’s too late:
• Like (and miss playing with) Legos? Well, at Discovery Times Square, you can see the “World’s Biggest and Most Elaborate Display of Lego Art”
• Are you obsessed with Roget’s Thesaurus? We are too! Check out the big word-based paintings by Mel Bochner at the Jewish Museum
• Good things come in small sizes, yes? A 16th-century prayer book the size of a MetroCard commissioned by the queen of France, at the Morgan Museum.
