I met up with [livejournal.com profile] warriorsavant, his sister and his girlfriend Nom at The South Street Seaport Museum.

I'd bee there once before, for the FDR and the Sea exhibit, which was amazing.

Between then and now, the museum had serious financial difficulties and faced closure. It may have actually closed for a few months, I'm not sure. To save it, the Museum of the City of New York took it over.

Which is great for me, since I;m a member of MCNY, so now I'm a member here, too! It puts me one step closer to collecting allt he NYC museums.

Anyway.

We met around 3:30, primarily to see the Compass: Folk Art in Four Directions exhibit. This was split up into four galleries, each one discussing one aspect of the history of the Seaport: exploration, communication and society, shopping and the weather.

The first gallery, exploration, included maps, statues of animals, paintings of cities, things people took with them while traveling, and, my favorite piece, a Noah's Ark quilt.

The woman (probably women) who sewed it included pairs of animals embroidered or appliqued on it. The animals included both dromedaries )one humped camels) and Bactrian (two humped camels), ostriches, chickens, spiders, snakes, crickets.

It was just fun to look at.

The second gallery included lots of paintings of sea captains and the like. My favorite piece here was the mathematics book used by the Pennsylvania Dutch. One page was sums and other math stuff, but the facing page had a drawings of men on hirseback with pistols drawn.

It was an odd juxtaposition.

The third gallery was about the goods shipped via the South Street Seaport. So, tobacco (a statue of a Turkish man in a genie costume), a hanging sheep (for a shop specializing in wool) whale bone pie cutters, furniture, all sorts of things.

The most interesting pieces here were the canes made of whale bone, with various carvings on them. The detail work was amazing.

Oh, and a creepy Santa Claus.

Gallery four was the weather gallery. Lots of weather vanes. There was a painting of a ship sinking, and a memorial quilt for the Titanic.

My favorite piece here was a painting of a waterfall, because of the materials and techniques used, there was a very impressionisitic 3D feel to it. IT was neat.

This exhibit was organized by the American Folk Art Museum. This isn't really surprising, since they lost most of their gallery space not too long ago.

We also watched Timescapes, MCNY's 22 minute documentary about the history of NYC. If you have the choice between watching it here or at the MCNY*, watch it here. The screen is bigger and the chairs more comfortable.

*Although I can't imagine that anyone would go to both the MCY and the South Street Seaport Museum on the same day, since they are on opposite ends of Manhattan.

From the museum, they went to visit their father while I wandered around for a while. We met up again for dinner at Pete's Tavern, where the short story writer O. Henry wrote. I met two more of [livejournal.com profile] warriorsavant's friends, who were fun.

I had the chicken with mushrooms and peppers in a tasty sauce. The serving was so large that half of it came home with me.

After dinner, I grabbed a cab and came home. A great day.

A great day!

So, for my birthday, I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with friends!
Well, where did you think I'd go? )
oxymoron67: (history)
My friend the soap opera writer and I went to the Morgan Library and Museum.

I love the Morgan. I can go to the Rotunda and Library and just sit and absorb the beauty.

Anyway, my friend had never been there before.

So we got there, and started with Morgan's office, the Rotunda, Bella da Costa Greene (his librarian)'s office and the library itself. He loved the Gutenberg Bible on display (the Morgan has three), and the music sheets from Mozart, Schubert and DeBussy that were on display.

The Morgan has its Near East seals collection and some cunieform tables on display in da Costa Greene's office.

The Rotunda is beautiful.

If you ever come to NYC... you must visit here. It is amazing.

From there, we went to the Winston Churchill exhibit, which focused on his letters and included an extraordinary 21 minute multimedia presentation of excerpts from his most famous speeches.

The letters included things from his time at boarding school and in the service through his time as Prime Minister. Several of these letters were addressed to his remarkable mother, who was an American heiress named Jennie Jerome. One of the most touching was a Churchill quotes (and one from FDR*) covered the walls.

On the other side of the multimedia area, there was a section on the Nazi portrayal of Churchill, and then some more of his writings.

From there, we went to Renaissance-era Venetian drawings, etching and printing. If you name a famous Northern Italian artist from the period, you will likely find a piece by him/her there. It was glorious.

This exhibit explains why I love the Morgan: it focuses on things that most museums don't: drawings, etchings, printings, manuscripts.

I will go back for both of these exhibits on my own, as we kind of rushed through them.

From there, we had dinner in their cafe, which was essentially a tapas menu. We had the deviled eggs (needed more paprika), salmon croquettes on pumpernickel (tasty), mushroom risotto (which had raisins in it, which gave it a sweeter finish than I expected, but it was tasty... oh, and bright yellow because of the saffron), a cheese plate (stilton, manchego and edam), olives in a citrus and jalapeno brine, and baba ghanoush, which had apple in it, giving it a little crunch and, again, a surprising, but not unpleasant, sweetness.

There plates were all appetizer sized, but it was enough to satisfy us.

Anyway, I have said before and I will say again: The Morgan never disappoints.

Today, a friend of mine and I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Hijinx ensued. )

I met up with my friend the Soap Opera Writer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

I lured him there with the phrases "Frank Lloyd Wright Room", "Fabrege" and "Tiffany Room".

Who could resist that?

We actually started in the Greco-Roman section, which was fun.

Especially since we had exchanges like this one:

Him: This is clearly a baseball player.
Me: The card says it's a fighting Gaul.
Him: Is he their mascot?
Me: No, maybe it's the name of the team: The Fighting Gauls.

Him: Ooo... what are these.. they're really pretty.
Me: The card says that they're two glass bowls.
Him: It does not. (reads) Why bother including that? I can SEE that they're two glass bowls.

From there, we went to the Medieval Art section -- the museum is in the process of changing the displays, and many new statues are up. Here is one:



These gentlemen are witnessing a crucifixion... and disco dancing.

I don't RECALL a "Crucifixion Dance Party" in Jesus Christ Superstar, but I haven't seen it recently.

Here is the single most smug Baby Jesus I've ever seen:



Doesn't he look like he's saying, "You're a sinner... and I'm not. And that's how it should be."

And here is St. Anne holding her daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is, in turn holding the Baby Jesus.



Apparently St. Anne was a giantess.

From there, we went to the Fabrege exhibit, which was neat. They;ve rotated the items in there as well. There are new things since I saw it last.

And then the Frank Lloyd Wright room, which was delightful.

Then we went to the Cinema Cafe for dinner.

I had the tuna tacos appetizer and the Kobe Burger. Delicious. (Prix Fixe menu: choice of appetizer and entree for 25ish dollars).

Tomorrow? Back to work!

I actually was planning on going to The Museum of the Moving Image for a documentary festival, but I just couldn't get motivated this morning. I'll try again tomorrow.

It's at two p.m., I should be able to manage that.

Anyway... I ended up going to the Museum of the City of NEw York, where I ended up spending a few hours.

The Cecil Beaton exhibit is still up, but I've seen it twice and don't need to see it again. It's spectacular, don't get me wrong, go see it if you get a chance.

I visited the Greatest Grid Exhibit (About the development of the grid in Manhattan). I've seen this before, and it was packed, so I wanted to see it again.

It's an interesting exhibit, but the way it's set up, there are LOTS of dead ends where people can stack up.

After that, I went upstairs to the "Future Designs for the Grid" exhibit. It was .... okay. It was several artists different versions of the future of Manhattan. *shrug*. Two galleries were closed for installations of new exhibits.

Next, I went to the NYC Interiors exhibit. This is a permanent installation: six rooms from different periods in history, from the New Amsterdam Dutch colony period through the Gilded Age.

It's serious furniture porn.

Finally, I spent time in the Police Photographs from the 1970's exhibit. It was interesting. The clothes were so 70's it hurt. But the shots were interesting. Well worth the time.

Afterward, I was a little hungry, so I went to the cafe at the Museo del Barrio, which is right across the street. They have AMAZING empenadas there. The Salvadoran shrimp empenadas are to die for: just the right combination of creamy and spicy. The Bolivian queso empanadas are also delicious.

Alas, they didn't have those. They did have Bolivian chicken empenadas. Unfortunately, it was towards the end of the day, and I think they sat in the heater too long. They were drier and chewier than usual.

Lesson learned: go earlier in the day.

A friend of mine who is attending Parson's for Design needed to see The Radical Image exhibit at The Jewish Museum for a class assignment.

We went today. I did not realize that Saturdays were free days at the Jewish Museum. I never go to museums on "free day". They're packed and it's ridiculous and I like my museums quieter so I can contemplate... You kids, get out of my museum! *shakes cane*

Well, I was part way there when I got a text from my friend telling me that she'd be late. I should have planned for that. So, I got off the bus at the right stop and wandered around for a while. I'm in this neighborhood a lot, but I never actually explore it.

Of course, the wind picks up right then and it starts spitting flurries despite being a bright sunny day.

Anyway, I see a Ciao Bella Ice Cream and Coffee Shoppe about a half block from the museum, so I stop in there, have some ice cream (single scoop, Tahitian Vanilla, with chocolate sprinkles. Sometimes the simple pleasures are the best.

As I'm getting ready to leave, I get a phone call from my friend who has arrived at the museum. I tell her that I;m almost there and to wait for me.

I check in, drop off my coat and bag and we go into the exhibit.

Before we see anything, I ask to see the assignment. This particular friend had only been in college for one semester and sometimes needs direction on how to approach assignments. It's not that she's dumb: she isn't; it's just that she's never thought this way.

The assignment was straightforward: pick a photo, defend why you chose it, describe it and sketch it.

For somebody into art and design, this is a nice assignment.

The exhibit itself was about The Photo League, a group of photographers who were active in NYC (and other places) from 1936-51. It was wonderful.

The exhibit actually started with early 1930's photos from the Works Progress Administration, which is what the Photo League pun out of. These photos included shots by the amazing Berenice Abbott among others.

From there, it was the Photo League running around Manhattan (mostly) in the mid-to late thirties. The shots here were of neighborhood events (San Gennaro, for example) or everyday snippets of neighborhood life (kids drawing on the sidewalk with chalk).

Next was a section on Harlem. Some amazing photographs here, including one of a dance studio that trained, among others, Nat King Cole and Marlon Brando.

WWII was next. Many of the photographers went to war, and more women photogrpahers rose to prominence in the league, though there had always been some women. It was never exclusively male.

Finally, there was the port-WWII section. In the "Red Scare" days, the Photo League's early ties to radical movements caught up to it. Several members were blacklisted and, by 1951, it shut down.

Still, these photos were AMAZING.

Go to the Jewish Museum. It's wonderful. Also, it has a WALL OF MENORAHS. Just saying.

Then the two of us drafted out her assignment. Usually, I tell her to cut stuff because she can get on a tangent really easily. Here, I was encouraging her to add information, like, when discussing what photo she chose, I wanted her to explain what her favorite photos all had in common.

Finally, we met friends for dinner. I had the salmon over a mash of fingerling potatoes and wild mushrooms. Mmmmmm.

Tomorrow? An Oscar party!

It went rather well.

The focus of the class was a further discussion of the stress system of English, but it's the detours we took that were interesting.

1) The word "proverbial" was used, so we discussed provebrs for a good ten minutes.
I had them look up the word, then they looked up some proverbs, I put them on the board and we discussed what they meant.

It was fun. When I teach this class again (and I'm scheduled to do so this summer), I may do an entire lesson on proverbs.

2) We talked about food.
This started when I was showing how word stress changes meanings of words. In this instance, it was "desert" (stress on the first syllable), a noun, the place where it rarely rains versus "desert" the verb, meaning to abandon.

One of them asked about dessert, the after dinner treat.

From there, and I'm still not sure how, we jumped to caviar and then to escargot.

I quoted my mom, re: escargot: "Really, you might as well just eat an eraser."*

3) Then we talked about tone of voice. I was doing the readings and lists we were going over in different voices, including my "lite FM radio" voice, students commented on that, so we all tried to do sentences in different tones and discussed what how THAT can change meaning.

4) The words "silhouette" and "picturesque" were examples, and we talked about art.

5) We also had the "Yes, English is crazy, but ALL languages are" discussion. This came from both working with stress, a question a student had because he can't hear the difference between the vowels in "hop" and "love". (This is common. These vowels are similar.) and because students noted that when English borrowed "escargot" from French, we never altered its spelling or pronunciation.

Overall, a good class.

Tomorrow, the (late) midterm!

I went to the newly-refurbished New York Historical Society today.

It's easy to get to, on 77th and 8th Avenue, down the street from the American Museum of Natural History.

On the stairs of the main entrance is a life size statue of Abraham Lincoln.

Inside, many of the docents were in period clothes, primarily Revolutionary War-era. It was so cool.

So I joined.

Hey, for educators, it's only $60/year. That's four trips. I can manage that in a year.

I visited the fourth floor, where the permanent collection resides, which was neat, though not particularly well organized. Things were umped into categories: like "furniture" and "statues" but they weren't really sorted in any historical pattern. I think it makes sense to give context.

Call me crazy.

I mean, the items on display were fascinating, and many of them had little blurbs that went with them, but, overall, it needs more organization than it has. On this floor was also an exhibit on how NYC influenced the development of the Santa Clause story.

I went to the first floor, where they had a great multimedia exhibit: an entire wall is covered in paintings, sculptures and items like a rifle. You go to one of the media screens, touch the screen where the time that interests you is, and an explanation of that item pops up on the screen.

From there, I went to lunch in their cafe. I had the wild mushroom risotto, which was really good, though I would have preferred the mushrooms to be chunkier. They were a little too finely chopped for my tastes.

Then I saw their documentary about the growth of NYC, which was good, visited the gift shop and left.

BEcause it was such a beautiful day, I meandered through Central PArk for awhile then went home.

A great day.

I'll be heading back soon to see their exhibition on the American, French and Haitian Revolutions and their exhibit of miniature paintings of important women during the Gilded Age.

(You can thank me for that earworm anytime.)

I can divide today into work and play sections.

Work!

Class is going well so far. Of course, let's see if I still say that this time next week, after the first speech (Monday) and first quiz (Wednesday). I'm up to seventeen students. One dropped, but five new students showed up.

Twenty-four students are registered for the courses.

Meantime, the seminar for online teaching lurches forward. Apparently about half of my colleagues haven't done anything with that dumb ass, useless research project they wanted us to do. We're meeting next Thursday? The Thursday after? to discuss the project.

That won't end in disaster.

Meantime, work today was slow. During our mini-terms (both the in the winter and summer), we don't offer Friday classes (though we do offer Saturday and Sunday classes, which always run*). Most departments don't (and in the summer NONE of them do), so Fridays are empty.

I left early.

Play!

So, I decided to visit The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Why? Because it's the freaking Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Since I last visited those galleries, the museum had re-arranged things in the Cypriot galleries as well as in some of the 19th and 20th century European paintings. The American wing is slated to reopen in a week or two so I;ll be visiting that soon.

One highlight? The newly-reopened and (from the few galleries I was in) magnificent Islamic Art galleries lead into the European section. The gallery between them now houses European paintings of the Middle East from (primarily) the 19th Century.

Then I sauntered through several other sections, including the German Romantics Gallery. One of my favorite paintings is up there: a Norwegian artist was in Naples circa 1820 when Vesuvius erupted. He painted a night eruption scene. Dark and beautiful.

Another standout was the winter landscape painted by an English artist: it was all in browns and oranges. It was stunning: all stark and haunting yet still beautiful. From there, I spent time in the early 20th Century galleries. Then I realized that I hadn't eaten since breakfast and it was approaching 4pm, so I decided to try one of the museum;s restaurants.

After that, I stopped by their restaurant. I wanted to do high tea, but I was a little too late. So I had an early dinner instead: a bratwurst with sauerkraut and grainy mustard on a pretzel roll then a molten chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream.

The bratwurst was really good and the mustard was good and spicy and vinegar-y. The pretzel roll was heated up just right. The sauerkraut was kind of bland.

The dessert? Had the cake been warm, it would have been much better. As it was, the molten center was solid, so the cake was kind of like a cake tootsie pop.

After that, I spent time revisiting the new Fabrege exhibit and came home.

Tomorrow? The New York Historical Society has reopened. I am so there.

This was my last day of vacation, so I decided to go to The Museum of the City of New York.

They had a free ice cream sandwich promotion, and they were debuting two new exhibits on the development and growth of the grid in Manhattan.

I met up with my friend the Soap Opera Writer, who was only a half hour late. This is as close to on time as he gets.

The lines were huge... I've never seen lines this big there.. and once he had gotten through the line, well, all the ice cream was gone. Honestly, it was probably gone earlier, which is fine.

After several years of renovation, the museum reopened one of the second floor wings, which is currently hosting an exhibit on the future of Manhattan growth and the grid system.

We didn't spend much time in that exhibit. We did, however, spend a lot of time in the history and development of the grid system.

In 1811, NYC was pretty much Downtown Manhattan, which, if you've ever been there, is a confusing maze. For those of us who tend to get lost ANYWAY, Downtown Manhattan is a horror show. Anyway, in 1811, the powers that were decided to survey the rest of the island of Manhattan and layout a grid.

This exhibit is about the original contracts and surveys (which are on display) as well as all the excavation and work involved in the development of the city. There are lots of maps, photos (especially by Berenice Abbot) and contracts that show how the grid was adapted to the different terrains of Manhattan and how some landholders actually added streets (MAdison and Lexington weren't part of the original plan) and hoe Broadway, which was laid out before the grid, survived.

Fascinating.

Though, honestly, the way it was laid out was... an interesting failure. The curators decided to mimic the grid system in the space, but this meant that they divided the space into a bunch of little cubbyholes that were difficult to maneuver in.

From there, we went to the Cinema Cafe for dinner.

We split the small plate combo, which included truffled risotto croquettes (delicious!), steak kebabs in a tamarind sauce (A little too chewy for my tastes but delicious), dumplings and spring rolls both fine, but the dipping sauce was wonderful.

Then we split the meatball pizza. It was a margarita pizza (I'm sure I spelled that wrong) base with meatballs, prosciutto and mushrooms on top. It was delicious, too.

Wonderful.

Next up? The Morgan has a new exhibit for Robert Burns and Auld Lang Syne. Or... on Thursday night, a German recording artist is going to sing the songs of Kate Bush at Lincoln Center.

I took the day off from work, and the following happened.

1) I went to the National Museum of the American Indian, where I saw an exhibit of a Tlingit artist's works in glass and part of the Infinity of Nations display.

The glass scultpures were quite something. Most of them depicted traditional Tlingit motifs. A few looked like wood more than glass. I think my favorite ones were the vases that, when light was shone on them, cast a shadow in the pattern of wolves and ravens.

The Inifnity of Nations display is the permanent exhibit there. It's well worth going through. I got about halfway through when a small herd of kids at day camp and their overwhelmed counselors came in. I left.

It's okay, I've been through Infinity of Nations before. I highly recommend this museum. It's easy to get to (take the 4 or 5 train to Bowling Green, take the escalator out of the subway station, turn right AND IT'S THERE.

Seriously, I found it on my first try, and I can get lost crossing the street.

2) From there, I had sushi for lunch. Mmmmm.

3) Next up, I went to Lincoln Center to check out the Irish and the Arts exhibit at the branch of the New York Public Library there. It was great. As I entered, I saw an eighteen minute clip show running. This clip show included pieces from Irish plays and a few dance numbers, including a brief Riverdance number.

Which was odd, as Riverdance was also featured later on.

One was was coated in plyabills and posters featuring plays and movies written by Irish people (or their descendants). Another wall was covered in sheet music (some from the 19th century).

Various costumes and musical instruments were also there. A great exhibition!

4) I decided to go see Deathly Hollows 2, which was really good.

5) Dinner at Les Sans Cullottes. I was told that when you go to this restaurant, they give you some suasages, a bowl of pate and a bowl of Bearnaise sauce and a basket of produce.

My friends were not entirely honest. It was a ridiculous amount of sausages. Enough pate for three or four people, and an enormous basket of produce, including some delicious canteloupe, carrots, Roma tomoatoes and cauliflower.

If you order an entree, the rack o'sausage and big basket of produce are free.

I had the shrimp cauteed in a white wine sauce along with zucchini, onions and red and yellow bell peppers. I thought about getting the steak, but it's the summer, and I wanted something lighter.

Dinner includes dessert. So I had the chocolate mousse, which was excellent.

So overall, a great day.
oxymoron67: (history)
Yesterday, I went back to Discovery Times Square for the Pompeii exhibit. Scott wanted to see it, and I enjoyed it the first time, so I didn't mind seeing it again.

To change things up, when I made our reservations, I threw down the extra $7 per person for the audio tour.

Anyway.

Scott was late, which isn't unusual, but it was because the train he was on was delayed. It's okay: we still got there in time, though we got wet, as it was raining.

Discovery Times Square has timed tickets. We made reservations for 6:00, so we had between six and six thirty to get there.

The exhibit was just as good as I remembered, though, trust me, you can skip the audio tour. The adult audio tour was filled with people who would just talk and talk and talktalktalk. Of course, one of the narrators had the last name of Growcock, so every time he was introduced, I had to giggle.

The "family" audio tour was better. We followed the lives of Portia and her son, Lucius, as they traveled through Pompeii. Portia's husband was a fisherman and was off at work.

Still... not worth the trouble.

The exhibit itself was not particularly crowded, and we took our sweet time.

From there, we went to La Mediterranee, a French restaurant and piano bar, where we had a magnificent meal. We both had vichysoisse, and he had the striped bass while I had the salmon dijoinaisse, which was served on a bed of sauteed spinach, with some grilled tomato slices. Dessert was chocolate mousse.

Mmmmmmmmm.

Today is a low energy day, so I'm taking the day off from my Adventures in Cultural Elitism.

I met up with friends ([livejournal.com profile] warriorsavant and his sister) at the Museum of American Folk Art.

[livejournal.com profile] warriorsavant was in NYC and wanted to do something geeky, and, let's be honest, if I'm not NYC's one-stop shop for geekiness, who is?

I suggested the Folk Art Museum because this branch is closing due to financial concerns (and MoMA is buying it, so they can screw up the climate control of another building. YAY!

Also, they were showing part two of their Quilts Extravanganza.

We went through the whole museum and saw a=some amazing paintings, the most dour dolls EVER, and this wall painting that had bears, elephants and a troop of soldiers painting along the bottom. The first time I looked at it, I missed all the people and animals. You had to really look for them.

The collection of weathervanes was neat, too. This museum's collection is really offbeat and interesting. I need to find its Lincoln Square locations.

The main reason we were there, though, was the three floors of quilts. It was amazing. Unlike part one of the Quilting Extravaganza, which was organized chronologically, part two was organized more by techniques and styles of quilting. It was interesting, especially since both [livejournal.com profile] warriorsavant and his sister know a great deal about stitchery and quilting.

We didn't stop in the gift shop, which is just as well, since it's so expensive.

Great conversation was had. Then we went to dinner (Indian food -- delicious) and talked more.

Then we went our separate ways. I got back to my neighborhood, and since it was so nice out and it was dusk, I wandered around the neighborhood for a while.

If you can, go to the Museum of American Folk Art before the 53rd St. branch closes.

I was meeting a friend for dinner, and decided to just make a day of it.


Sunday was not a warm day, but it was ridiculously humid. As a result, I was sweating like a pig whenever I was outdoors.

After running errands (picking up laundry, going grocery shopping), I hopped on the bus and went to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. My plan was to go to the Byzantine Art Galleries. To get there, I cruised through the Classical Greek and Roman Galleries. Normally, I can get totally derailed there.

But I was of a single mind.

Until I saw the Mycenaean and Cretan galleries. Then I was waylaid.

I *DID* eventually make it to the Byzantine galleries, but didn't even get through one or two until I saw a new gallery: The Byzantine Egypt Gallery! How could I resist? I went in.

From there, I went to the Medieval Art section, and into the special exhibit on boxes and casks. It rocked.

The whole two hours of so that I was there rocked.

Then I went to see Thor again, this time in 3D.

Finally, I met my friend for dinner at Zuni's, which is a great place right off Times Square. The food and conversation were delightful. Since it was after midnight when we parted ways, I just flagged down a taxi and came home.
