At the beginning of December the New Museum will celebrate 40 years!
In honor of that time, the museum will open its doors to the public for extended hours, and free of charge, on December 2nd and 3rd. A general admissions ticket is $18 so this is definitely a steal, and the perfect time to visit if you haven’t found your way there yet.
Along with this wonderful anniversary perk, the New Museum is also looking back at the last 40 years with its current exhibit which “reflects on the institution’s pursuits of groundbreaking art and ideas, and its legacy of questioning the structures and functions of museums”—Pursuing the Unpredictable: The New Museum 1977–2017.
This exhibit will feature pieces artwork from the museum’s past exhibitions and programs over the years.
