what NY socialites do in 10021

A New York Socialite is brought up to be cultured, educated and to love and be passionate about the arts. There is no greater appreciation than support and patronage of museums. While it does not always require a wing be named after a socialite family, love of art can be expressed in a multitude of ways. This blog is an expression for the love of art in New York Museums. You can even call it a passion.

What museums or art galleries have Banksy in their permanent collection?

I am an art history major writing my senior thesis on Banksy, and I need help finding a more complete list of what museums show his work. I am specifically looking for art institutions that have bought his art and put it in their galleries. I am also interested in what its like to curate graffiti art, so any info on that would be helpful as well. Thanks!

Put it in their galleries.

Why do we have American museums dedicated to foreign-born Jews but no museums for Native Americans?

We have tax-payer funded Holocaust museums throughout the US, mainly dedicated to memory of European-born Jews and other European-born individuals, with one even targeted for children, but why don’t we have museums and memorials dedicated to the genocides of early Native Americans in the United States?

Its not just native americans what about the 65 million christians who were murdered in the bolshevik revolution. We dont hear a peep about them where are their museums. you would think if there was all this attention for six million jews that there would be just as much attention giving or more for 65 million christians. Something doesn’t add up here.

What is the best digital camera setting for museums?

I have a Canon SD1100 IS, and I wanted to know what would be a good setting to use, to take pictures in museums? I know some museums don’t allow flash photography, so any advice on how to get a decent to good picture would be nice.

Sorry if someone else already asked this question.

First make sure image stablisation is turned on. Try using auto mode this will probably be ok for most situations.

The manual mode on that camera does not give much flexibility. Although it will allow you to set the ISO, try setting the ISO to 400 or even 800. This will means you will trade a little noise in the photo for a shorter exposure time. Best to experiment with ISO settings before you go to the museum so that you know what works best with your camera.

Some other tips, when shooting a object in a glass display case try and get the lens as close as possible to the case, this will cut down on the reflections from the glass. Also wearing a black t-shirt can help cut down reflections.

How come museums offer few programs for adults?

I’m interested in learning more at some museums and planetariums but most of their programs are aimed at the primary and middle school levels. I don’t think programs such as "Summer Space Camp", are offered for anyone over the age of 12. The more advanced the grades go, it seems the fewer programs they have to offer. Even interesting stuff for senior high students are hard to find, and it is definitely a stretch to see anything for university and graduate students being advertised at the museum.
How come attractions offer so few interesting programs suitable for older learners?

Educated people who enter a museum are already motivated and trained to learn on their own. Children need help. Older students can do science fair projects, reports, and so on, on their own. They also begin to specialize, so it’s harder to tailor a program with appeal to a larger group. Adults have less free time available due to their responsibilities to raise their own children, and to earn a living. More programs are indeed available to retired adults and senior citizens.

Which museums do you suggest to visit in Amsterdam and what else to do in Amsterdam?

There are a lot of museums in Amsterdam. Except Van Gogh and Madamme Tussoud, I dont have any idea about the rest.

Which museums do you suggest to visit?

Except visiting museum and boat tour do you have any sugessions to do if you have only 3 days?

The three big museums are the Rijksmuseum (17th century oil paintings), the van Gogh Museum (most famous 19th century painter), and the Anne Frank house (hiding place of this Jewish girl in WW2).

A new museum that I love is the Hermitage, a cooperation with a Russian museum in St. Petersburg.

How can museums today engage other audiences without presenting watered-down culture?

How can museums today engage an audience which is not just the traditional art audience but also the person who works in a factory, the person who’s a secretary–all the tremendously different types that make up society?

In my town we also have a community art based gallery. We have works from all walks of life. Check out the smaller less important galleries.
