Museum Mile Festival
Tuesday, June 14 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm
Don’t miss New York City’s biggest block party! Museum Mile is an annual celebration of the world-class Museums lining Fifth Avenue from 82nd Street to 105th Street, and the Museum of the City of New York is proud to take part every year. This year on June 14th, make sure to visit us at the top of Museum Mile and check out our exhibitions celebrating the city, ranging from the hilarious Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs to the poignant In the South Bronx of America. Other exhibitions on view include New York’s Yiddish Theater, the photographic time-travel of #LostInOldNY, and the newly redesigned Activist New York.
In addition, visitors will have a rare opportunity to preview the Museum’s most anticipated exhibition ever and possibly even end up on the walls of the Museum themselves….
New Yorkers Needed
The Museum of the City of New York and Local Projects are teaming up to offer Museum Mile visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of the Museum’s groundbreaking exhibition New York at Its Core, coming November 2016. Dozens of festivalgoers will be offered the chance to strut their stuff as hoverboarders, urban farmers, and other future occupants of NYC. Participants may have their videos included in the innovative and interactive Future City Lab – one of three galleries making up New York at Its Core. All New Yorkers are welcome to participate, just visit the Museum during Museum Mile and find the auditorium for the film shoot we’re calling New Yorkers Needed. Those who wish to observe but not participate are more than welcome to stop by for a sneak peek at the making of the Museum’s most anticipated exhibition ever.
