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).
Until August 18th, the Museum of Art and Design will be showcasing “Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die”, which explores punk music in the form of graphics, flyers and album art. All items have been provided by collector Andrew Krivine.
The Museum of Art and Design is located at 2 Columbus Circle (at 58th Street).
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.
