New York at its Core
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from New York at its Core, the Museum of the City of New York’s new landmark permanent exhibit. Was it just going to be a bunch of artifacts? What was I going to see and learn?

Japan Society
Walking into the Japan Society is like stepping into poetry. The austere exterior is monochromatic, unadorned with frills, somehow imposing without being intimidating. It’s solid. As you enter the black tiled inner courtyard, you are greeted by the contemplative sounds of running water trickling over rocks. Climbing the stairs to reach the gallery level, you rise through a small stand of bamboo.

Jerusalem 1000-1400: Every People Under Heaven
The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s blockbuster show of the fall season, Jerusalem 1000-1400: Every People Under Heaven provides visitors with an even-handed glance into the opulence and culture of medieval Jerusalem as an ancient holy city and pilgrimage destination, as well as a center of commerce and artistic production.

Museum Meetup: Storm King Art Center
I felt a lot like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole towards Wonderland; I imagined that long tumble could give anyone a little motion sickness. As the bus curved and winded its way towards Storm King Art Center,  feeling a little queasy, I  kept my eyes forward as we left the bustling of the city and were embraced by trees blooming with fall foliage.
This year, I attended several of the many performances a part of their concert series.
Deaf West brings both hearing and hearing impaired audience members a new appreciation for an old(er) show.

Rembrandt's Changing Impressions
I highly recommend this exhibit to anyone that appreciates the patience of looking. The Wallach Gallery presents a quiet sanctuary of Rembrandt’s most profound works. On view until December 12, Rembrandt's Changing Impressions uncovers a quality in his prints that often gets lost in reproductions.
