We had the opportunity to enjoy this year’s Museum Mile Festival on Tuesday evening, a cultural celebration hosted by the storied institutions of Fifth Avenue.
The festivities spanned Fifth Avenue, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art at 82nd Street, to The Museum of the City of New York and El Museo del Barrio at 104th Street. It was a rare opportunity to stroll down the middle of Fifth Avenue, with musicians and artists sharing their talents on a beautiful summer’s evening. Many of the museums offered free admission and kept their doors open later than usual to promote their most recent exhibitions.
Here are a few of the exhibitions highlighted during the festival:
- The Metropolitan Museum of Art:
Transitional Object (PyschoBarn), Cornelia Parker
- Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Future Present, László Moholy-Nagy
- Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
