NYCAHH_digitalCard_550x400_white_02

NYCCAH, The New York City Coalition Against Hunger, works to move the 1.5M New Yorkers who choose between a utility bill and a meal, beyond the soup kitchen. Forty percent of this population are children. When schools are closed, and the government provided breakfast, and state provided lunches are not available, many of these children do not eat.

Please support NYCCAH to advocate for policies that feed New Yorkers, until they are able to feed themselves.

Ugo Rondinone’s Human Nature Transforms Rockefeller Center

April 24th, 2013

Screen shot 2013-04-24 at 3.09.44 PMFor seven weeks this spring, Ugo Rondinone’s Human Nature transforms Rockefeller Center Plaza between 49th and 50th Streets. As if transported from another time, the nine colossal stone figures that comprise the work range in height from 16 to 20 feet and weigh up to 30,000 pounds each. Their immovable legs become gates through which visitors may pass, experiencing the rough surfaces of these primal forms.

To share your photos of the exhibition, submit to our User Uploaded Gallery  or tag them #UgoNYC on the web.

Join us on May 8 for Public Art Fund Talks at The New School when Rondinone will present the first public lecture on his work in New York City. For more information and to purchase tickets click here.

On display at Rockefeller Center through June 7, 2013.

The Steins Collect, on view at The MET through June 3 2012.

April 20th, 2012

Gertrude Stein, her brothers Leo and Michael, and Michael’s wife Sarah were important patrons of modern art in Paris during the first decades of the twentieth century. This exhibition unites some two hundred works of art to demonstrate the significant impact the Steins’ patronage had on the artists of their day and the way in which the family disseminated a new standard of taste for modern art. The Steins’ Saturday evening salons introduced a generation of visitors to recent developments in art, particularly the work of their close friends Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, long before it was on view in museums.

On view through June 3, 2012.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is located at 1000 Fifth Avenue, at 82nd Street.
