This summer The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art are presenting PUNK: Chaos to Couture. The exhibition will examine punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the 1970s through its continuing influence today.
On exhibit now at the Japan Society, Edo Pop – The Graphic Impact of Japanese Prints.
Edo Pop playfully juxtaposes classic ukiyo-e prints from masters like Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige with contemporary works inspired by these artists and their works. Delve into worlds created by the power of Edo period and contemporary popular culture.
On May 12 the Japan Society is hosting a family-friendly printmaking workshop inspired by the works found in Edo Pop. Included is a discussion of selected works in the exhibition and an explanation of woodblock printmaking techniques. A printmaking workshop devoted to a variety of techniques follows, with time for show-and-tell with all participants.

This is going to be a “must attend” for our family…
On Saturday, October 27, the American Museum of Natural History is re-opening one of its greatest treasures: the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial.
The recently restored two-story Memorial — which includes the iconic Central Park West façade, Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda, and Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall — serves as New York State’s official memorial to its 33rd Governor and the nation’s 26th President. The Hall includes a new exhibition charting Roosevelt’s journey from budding naturalist to an elected leader committed to conservation.
Long before he was President and placed some 230 million acres of land under federal protection, Roosevelt was a boy whose father helped to found this Museum. And Roosevelt’s ongoing relationship with Museum scientists, such as ornithologist Frank Chapman, helped seed the American conservation movement. The museum and wing have a wonderful collection thanks to the Roosevelt’s.
