With over 150 museums and over 400 art galleries, New York City is an inspiration for any budding artist, no matter how old you are.
Three new art exhibitions just opened allowing you to look at art in a new way. You’ll see the difference in the details and how small objects make a huge impression. All feature New Yorker’s as the artist or collector.
- Drawings of Edward Hopper is showing at The Whitney Museum including over 2,500 drawings bequeathed to the museum by his widow Josephine Hopper, many of which have never before been exhibited or researched. Looking at the most famous of Hopper’s paintings and comparing them to the drawings shows the dedication to thinking about the details.
- The Art of the Brick is at the The Discovery Times Square and is a perfect example of how a man turned his hobby into a career because he wanted to have fun. Nathan Sawaya has taken famous examples of art from around the world and created the world’s biggest and most elaborate display of LEGO® art. This show has been traveling around the world and is now in NYC with new pieces.
- Fashion Jewelry, The collection of Barbara Berger is at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD). Barbara turned her love of jewelry into a collection when she purchased a pair of Chanel earrings at a French flea market as a teenager. That first piece led her to assemble one of the largest and finest collections of couture jewelry in the world. This exhibition features over 450 pieces of fashion jewelry by designers such as Miriam Haskell, Marcel Boucher, Balenciaga, Kenneth Jay Lane, and Gripoix, including fabulous necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, many of them one-of-a-kind.
