1) The Metropolitan Museum Of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, kindly known as The Met, is not only one of the most renowned museums in the world, but it’s also one of our personal favorites.

Getting lost in it is one our favorites things to do. Due to the current situation, with the Covid-19, we wanted to remind you that you can explore their collection online!

“The Met presents over 5,000 years of art from around the world for everyone to experience and enjoy. The Museum lives in three iconic sites in New York City—The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer, and The Met Cloisters. Millions of people also take part in The Met experience online.

Since it was founded in 1870, The Met has always aspired to be more than a treasury of rare and beautiful objects. Every day, art comes alive in the Museum’s galleries and through its exhibitions and events, revealing both new ideas and unexpected connections across time and across cultures.”

2) The Cloisters Museum and Gardens

Many people don’t know that The Cloisters is actually part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The museum opened to the public in May of 1938 and is focused on art and architecture of medieval Europe.

It’s located at Fort Tyron Park with a priceless view of the Hudson River – and I have the say, the sunset there is amazing!

“Located in a spectacular four-acre setting overlooking the Hudson River, the building incorporates elements from five medieval cloisters—Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, Bonnefont-en-Comminges, Trie-en-Bigorre, and Froville—and from other monastic sites located in southern France.

Three of the cloisters reconstructed at the branch museum feature gardens planted according to horticultural information found in medieval treatises and poetry, garden documents and herbals, and medieval works of art such as tapestries, stained-glass windows, and column capitals.”

Another museum, part of the list of most famous NYC museums, is MOMA – the Museum of Modern Art.

“Founded in 1929, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in midtown Manhattan was the first museum devoted to the modern era.

Today MoMA’s rich and varied collection offers a panoramic overview of modern and contemporary art, from the innovative European painting and sculpture of the 1880s to today’s film, design, and performance art.

From an initial gift of eight prints and one drawing, the collection has grown to include over 150,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, architectural models and drawings, and design objects; approximately 22,000 films and four million film stills; and, in its Library and Archives, over 300,000 books, artist books, and periodicals, and extensive individual files on more than 70,000 artists.”

Not many people that come visit or live New York have The Frick Collection on their To-Go itinerary. But, it’s definitely their loss, since it gathers a breathtaking collection!

“The Frick Collection was founded by Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919), the Pittsburgh coke and steel industrialist.

At his death, Mr. Frick bequeathed his New York residence and the most outstanding of his many artworks to establish a public gallery for the purpose of “encouraging and developing the study of the fine arts.”

Chief among his bequests, which also included sculpture, drawings, prints, and decorative arts such as furniture, porcelains, enamels, rugs, and silver, were one hundred thirty-one paintings.

The Frick Collection now houses a permanent collection of more than 1,100 works of art from the Renaissance to the late nineteenth century.”

5) Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

The Guggenheim Museum is just a few steps from The Met, and part of the Museum Mile in the Upper East Side. It’s architecture has been the topic of countless discussions on modern and contemporary art, as well as within the architectural universe!

“Founded in 1937, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation is dedicated to promoting the understanding and appreciation of art, primarily of the modern and contemporary periods, through exhibitions, education programs, research initiatives, and publications.

The Guggenheim network that began in the 1970s when the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, was joined by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, has since expanded to include the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (opened 1997), and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi (currently in development).

Looking to the future, the Guggenheim Foundation continues to forge international collaborations that take contemporary art, architecture, and design beyond the walls of the museum.”

6) American Museum of Natural History

This museum is not only for kids, but adults love it as well. It’s been the scenery in famous blockbuster movies and was obviously the star in the trilogy “Night at the Museum” with Ben Stiller!

We have to agree that seeing all the specimens and artifacts coming to life at night, was pretty cool, right?

“The American Museum of Natural History, founded in 1869, is one of the world’s preeminent scientific, educational, and cultural institutions. The Museum encompasses 45 permanent exhibition halls, including the Rose Center for Earth and Space and the Hayden Planetarium, as well as galleries for temporary exhibitions.

It is home to the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial, New York State’s official memorial to its 33rd governor and the nation’s 26th president, and a tribute to Roosevelt’s enduring legacy of conservation.

The Museum’s five active research divisions and three cross-disciplinary centers support approximately 200 scientists, whose work draws on a world-class permanent collection of more than 33 million specimens and artifacts, as well as specialized collections for frozen tissue and genomic and astrophysical data, and one of the largest natural history libraries in the world.”

7) Whitney Museum Of American Art

Love love the Whitney Museum and every time, we get swept of our feet with the exhibitions they put on. “Roy Lichtenstein’s Entablatures” and “Andy Warhol’s From A to B and back again” are just two to name!

“As the preeminent institution devoted to the art of the United States, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists.

The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holding of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum’s key resource.

The Museum’s signature exhibition, the Biennial, is the country’s leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.Innovation has been a hallmark of the Whitney since its beginnings.”

ARTECHOUSE invited us to another exclusive preview to experience a new immersive installation called Intangible Forms by Shohei Fujimoto!

This time, the new fully immersive visual experience is a multi-sensory, abstract journey into the known and unknown of the world around us. It opens to the public on March 3rd.

Not only is the installation is amazing, but additionally they created custom cocktails. Get ready for this multi-sensorial experience that will instigate all your senses.

So, take a look below to see what it’s all about and guarantee your tickets!


About Intangible Forms:

The multi-sensory installation is abstract in nature and minimalist in form. It reveals to the viewer the elaborate and invisible systems that underlie our reality, making visible the powerful forces that shape our every moment.

The results are dramatic, visceral, almost operatic in nature. It invites guests to exist in a space and time all its own, for the duration of the visit. 1 Light, time, and autonomy are recurring motifs that travel throughout the installation. Coded operations serve as a building block for Fujimoto’s process of exploration.

Often, Fujimoto refers to code and the mathematical operations as the invisible markers that create form. Sculpting imagery not in a particular shape, but sculpting the mathematical operations behind the image to give shape. Both intricate and alluring, Fujimoto’s works are prime examples for a new way of drawing and creating visual artworks.

In addition, the centerpiece installation invites us to see the intangible as tangible using kinetic laser modules set in a hazy soundscape.

But, what is it all about?

”I’ve been trying to generate virtual consciousness and, in extension, virtual life in this work, triggering a deeper sense of humanity in ourselves” – shares Fujimoto.

This central idea continues through a series of four more works spread throughout the space. All of which are created to exist in their own time axis with limited functionality, that imitate life phenomena around us.

“I hope by the end of their visit, the guests are able to focus on their own universal sense of being.”


More about ARTECHOUSE:

Founded in 2015 by arts advocates Sandro and Tati, ARTECHOUSE is a new age art destination dedicated to showcasing works by groundbreaking artists who work with new technology and new forms of creative expression.⁠

ARTECHOUSE will offer visitors and artists alike the most technologically advanced art platform in the world.

Entertainment Events Up Coming A Night of Opera Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi

Faymous presents A Night of Opera: Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi with stars of the Opera world at one of NYC’s most legendary nightlife venues!


GET TICKETS!

For one-night-only, Rebecca Fay Walsh and Faymous Productions presents A Night of Opera with an immersive modern interpretation of the classic Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi.

Staged against the iconic backdrop of The Box NYC, one of NYC’s most legendary nightlife venues. It will be performed by some of Opera’s most notable performers — including a former NY Yankee.

Tickets start at $50/person and all proceeds will go the Sing for Hope.


SYNOPSIS: Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi

“Rigoletto’s” a seemingly innocuous pizza shop run by a famed deformed clown, Rigoletto, is actually a store front for Sicilian mob boss, “the Duke,” who uses the venue as an actual speak easy to operate his drug distribution efforts.

The unsavory scene is a playground for the Duke’s depraved behavior, where a father’s curse destroys everything that Rigoletto holds dear.

ABOUT SING FOR HOPE:

Sing for Hope uplifts lives by unleashing creativity in under-resourced schools, healthcare facilities, refugee camps, transit hubs, and public spaces.

Furthermore, their work ranges from art workshops that improve academics for at-risk students to specialized music programs that enhance cognition for dementia patients, to arts interventions that facilitate integration for refugee youth, to the Sing for Hope Pianos that unite communities in our world’s public spaces.

BACKSTORY:

About producer Rebecca Fay Walsh, aka Faymous, and her inspiration for creating alternative theatrical platforms and is “exposing Opera to a new audience and preserving this unique art form for years to come.”

“FAYMOUS was founded by Rebecca Fay Walsh, an Opera singer in New York City. “Fay,” a rising star in the Opera world, had been recognized many times by the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions for her soprano voice.

In addition, when she arrived in New York City to pursue her career on stage, she was equipped with another tool beyond her voice; a recently purchased a DSLR Canon camera. Thanks to the ease and intuitive nature of the Canon cameras, Fay became a highly sought after portrait photographer in a matter of months, pulling her career trajectory in an unexpected direction.

Also, her talents garnered the attention of Emerald Gruin, the gallery director of the ROX Gallery on the lower east side where she was offered an artist residency.

During this time, Fay documented many of the greatest stars in the Opera world, not limited to Diana Damrau, Isabel Leonard, Ailyn Perez, Jamie Barton, Matthew Polenzani, and Sing for Hope founders, Monica Yunus & Camille Zamora.

Moreover, Emerald encouraged Fay to deepen her relationships with these exceptional artists by offering the gallery as a recital platform. Fay’s concept was to expose a new audience to these artist’s voices in a pure and exposed manner juxtaposed against the backdrop of a notoriously edgy contemporary art gallery.

After an Opera showcase, Opéra ROX, featuring Isabel Leonard and other stars of the Metropolitan Opera, FAYMOUS was born.

Lastly, FAYMOUS continues to maintain the spirit of this first performance, promoting classical singers and Opera by creating alternative platforms in New York. In building these platforms, Fay hopes to foster a new generation of Opera lovers, preserving this unique art form for years to come.”

Moreover, this multi-sensory installation seeks to do the same as the color itself, centering our thoughts, aiding concentration and fostering resilience while immersing visitors into a realm of boundless blue, evocative of the infinite evening sky at dusk, the vastness of deep, serene ocean waters, and the limitless reflections in the rain.”

We have to agree that this color is truly calming and smoothing. Plus, it was beautifully and creatively showcased through this technology-driven work of art!

Don’t miss the chance to see it!⁠
