Today’s the day I start to share Amé Amé ideas for your next adventure.
Of course a lot of “Near By” adventures will happen to be near to New York, but I intend to also write a lot about other adventuresome destinations and happenings.
And what easier way than to start with sharing about museum exhibits you don’t want to miss.
After all, I’m constantly telling people a packable K-Way jacket is perfect for a trip to a museum on a rainy day because once you get to the museum you just fold the K-Way into its pocket and whala! your wet jacket doesn’t have to bother you if you don’t want to check it in.
Furthermore, in the last week I’ve heard of 3 really exciting museum exhibits going on that I didn’t know about until somebody shared with me, so I’m going to share with you!
The first you actually have to wait for until next month and that the’s upcoming exhibit at the Museum of Natural History called
Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of the Dinosaurs
The exibit opens April 5th, and I learned about it because the curator Dr. Mark Norell, ,is a big fan of Amé Amé’s candy and loves to carry Filson bags all over the world when hunting for dinosaur fossils.
Now I’m super excited for this exhibit because not only has it been years since I’ve been to the Natural Museum of History, but who doesn’t love dinosaurs? If you don’t think dinosaurs are cool, then I just might have to invite you along with me when I go to this exhibit.
The next two exhibits end in April and are very much in the spirit of Amé Amé
At the Morgan Library there’s a special exhibit about The Little Prince. Now we all know that the Little Prince is a story about an adventuresome boy, but did you know that it was written in New York City, and did you know that the manuscript and drawings were given as a humble gift!
It’s quite beautiful to know or think that Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said to Silvia Hamilton “I’d like to give you something splendid, but this is all I have.” and tossed a rumpled paper bag onto her entryway table, which inside was the manuscript and drawings for The Little Prince.
I believe I read about this exhibit somewhere, but then was reminded about it by my friend and artist Marcus Poston. Don’t miss it!
Last but not least, this week a lovely lady with cool green hair, discovered Amé Amé and after chatting invited me to see an exhibit she was working for at the New Museum.
Pawel Althamer: The Neighbors is the first US Museum exhibit of the artist’s work.
While special and nice that Esha invited me to see it. There are several cool things about the artist and the exhibit.
The artist is Polish and I’m half, but if you read the New York Times article you’ll also learn about more important similarities between us for instance we both care about public parks.
And with a love for community and inspiring others to step out of their comfort zone, part of the exhibit is called the “Draftsmen’s Congress” and involves visitor collaboration.
April 13th, 2014 is the last day! Get Tickets!
