@ Metropolitan Museum of Art
As a result of the Met's European Paintings galleries continued renovation, many core pieces of the permanent collection are not on display. This exhibit puts some of those highlights back on display with a look at the ever-popular Golden Age of Dutch paintings from the 17th-century headlining Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals, and more.
@ Museum of Modern Art
The MoMA has extended it's delightful exhibition focused on its own collection of revolutionary sculptures by the famed Romanian artist Constantin Brancusi. Pair this with a similar exhibition at the Guggeneheim Museum and fill your day with one of the most influential and recognizable sculptors of the twentieth-century.
The new admissions policy can seem stressful, but this remains the most impressive museum in the world. Regardless of what you now have to pay, it is still worth a visit--if not two.
Modern Art is not Contemporary Art, so much of what you will find will be familiar. This is where all the artists you know hang their work. Current exhibits are a city-wide event.
