Last Updated: Tue 25 Feb 2014

Along with the abundance of recreation activity New York City offers, it boasts some of the world’s most educational, informational, and artistic museums. The renowned museums are continuously presenting new and innovative exhibitions. As the end of February draws near, fresh exhibits are on the horizon.

The Studio Museum in Harlem is a hub for fascinating works of art. On March 28th, the museum will be presenting various new exhibitions. Included in these is Assembly Required, a display that explores the significance of a location and the viewer’s experience. It uses pieces from the Studio Museum’s permanent collection to portray the possible restrictions an artist might have when exhibiting artwork.

Opening on March 22nd at the Museum of the City of New York is a tribute to the work of distinguished fashion trendsetter Stephen Burrows. The exhibit, Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced, focuses on and examines the intricate work of the first African-American designer who climbed the fashion ladder through the 60s and 70s era. It follows his innovation of bold, vibrant colors and patterns and how it became the style of that generation.

As always, on the first Saturday of every month, the New Museum hosts the “First Saturdays for Families” event. On March 2, the New Museum will be presenting the “First Saturdays for Families: What’s in a Portrait?” program. This program explores ways through which portraits aid in human expression. What’s in a Portrait? attempts to change the connotation that a portrait is simply a picture.
