Canoa Lab launches Wednesday February 1st at 11AM EST

A MUSEUM MOMENT

It's cold. It's dreary. It's January. What to do on these all-too-short weekend days where staying indoors is most ideal? Give a museum a go. We're spoiled to have so many amazing institutions at our fingertips in New York City. We sorted through the embarrassment of riches to choose the cream of the crop in current exhibitions - and added one road trip destination in for good measure. See you soon, Diana!

 

 

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

It's almost last call at Katz. Not the deli, the other New York institution - Brooklyn-born artist Alex Katz. Besides the museum's delightful permanent collection, we'd call this a must-see show - and ending soon! 

 

 

Whitney Museum of American Art

Who doesn't love a chilly afternoon stroll on The High Line that ends inside the warm and wonderful walls of the Whitney? We're going for At the Dawn of a New Age: Early Twentieth-Century American Modernism. So many new artists and work to discover!

  

 

MoMA

Always a favorite, and now so much more spacious! The Wolfgang Tillmans show is definitely a draw, but we're simply drooling over their new Mark Rothko paintings. Definitely need-to-see-in-person work. 

   

Frick Madison

RIP to The Met Breuer, but luckily The Frick Collection has set up shop in the Marcel Breuer-designed landmark building. A current special showing features the work of French impressionist Monet alongside that of Icelandic-Danish installation artist Olafur Eliasson. See you there. 

 

 

In the mood for a road trip?

 

 

THE PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART

Although we've never been, we've heard great things about the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I mean, just look at their lobby's Calder/Diana duo! A current exhibition that's exciting to us is Matisse in the 1930s. Running through January 29th - looks like we're scootin there this weekend!
