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.

The 19th Annual Juried Student Exhibition at the 92nd Street Y. May 11-June19.
Duration : 0:3:33
The Creative Time Global Residency program offered six socially-minded New York-based artists the rare opportunity to get off the ‘hamster wheel’ of exhibitions, biennials, and art fairs, and travel off the beaten path to immerse themselves in a social issue without the demands of producing a project.
Over two years, each artist investigated a burning question central to their practice on topics ranging from mass extinctions due to environmental change (Maya Lin), the burgeoning infrastructure for the visual arts in the Arab world (Walid Raad), the cultural hybridization of Brazil (Sanford Biggers), fringe queer culture in South America (K8 Hardy), immigrant activism in urban Italy (Emily Jacir), and rebuilding housing and communities in post-earthquake Haiti (Swoon).
This event was recorded in front of a live audience at New York’s 92nd Street Y.

http://www.metmuseum.org/ With love from Suzannah from The Met Museum. I am over exhausted as if I am “post traumatic stressing” yet I love my youtube pals from across the USA and abroad so this is for you with love.
I even mention Mickey Rourke because I have so many people that admire his raw talent and I am wearing that funny thrift shop hat of mine because I am having a bad hair day.
