Summer exhibits at your local museums are a great way to beat the heat and soak up some artistic and intellectual rays as well. If New York City happens to be where you are sweating out this summer, Pengallan suggests you breeze into the air conditioned coolness of the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art for two exhibits that we consider must sees.
Hopper Drawing is the first major museum exhibition to focus on the drawings and creative process of Edward Hopper (1882–1967). This exhibit will allow you to get see the sketches an drawings behind some of his most iconic works. Edward Hopper once said, "If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint."
PUNK: CHAOS TO COUTURE
Part of the Met's Costume Institute exhibition series, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, will examine punk's impact on high fashion from the movement's birth in the early 1970s through its continuing influence today. Featuring approximately one hundred designs for men and women, the exhibition will include original punk garments and recent, directional fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk's visual symbols.
