Each week, one of our teen programs intern presents their top 3 picks of arts and cultural events just for you. This week’s picks are from Thomas Choi.
Bob and Roberta Smith: Art Amnesty
October 26, 2014–March 23, 2015
MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave. at the intersection of 46th Ave.
Long Island City, NY
$5 with Student ID; Free for visitors 16 or younger
MoMA’s PS1 venue hosts Art Amnesty all through March. Art Amnesty allows artists to either deposit their art in the trash or exhibit it at PS1 before discarding it. “I NEVER WANT TO SEE THIS WORK OF ART AGAIN,” reads the artist pledge to discard his/her work. Check out exactly what nobody wants to see at PS1.
Take the night to dress up and go out to Bargemusic for their presentation of work by Brahms and Schubert. Situated on the East River, you get an incredible view of downtown Manhattan’s skyline while swaying to both the river and the masters of chamber music. It’s the perfect place for a relaxing evening with a friend. Tickets are only $5 when you purchase them through High 5 Tickets to the Arts.
