Art Exhibits + A Musical Performance This Week

This week, two exciting art exhibits at the Museum of Art and Design are taking place. In addition, a musical performance will be held at the New-York Historical Society. We discovered these happenings in a longer list of art events published by artnet.com.

 

A Piano Recital

On Friday, August 16th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, New Yorker cartoonist Mort Gerberg will play the 1907 Steinway piano that once belonged to Cole Porter at the New-York Historical Society. After his performance, Gerberg will sign copies of his book, “Mort Gertberg on the Scene“, which will also be available for purchase.

The performance will be free, but is limited to 40 guests.

The New-York Historical Society is located at 170 Central Park West (at 77th Street).

Scarves

Also at the Museum of Art and Design, “Vera Paints a Scarf” will be on display until January 26th.

Vera Neumann was a successful design entrepreneur who created a popular women’s scarf line, and thousands of textile patterns based on her drawings and paintings.

The exhibit is the first dedicated to her career, and will feature her paintings and over two hundred items from her fashion line. In addition, visitors will get to see archived photos and videos and materials from Neumann’s marketing campaigns.
