On March 30, 1880, after a brief move to the Douglas Mansion at 128 West 14th Street, the Museum opened to the public at its current site on Fifth Avenue and 82nd Street. The architects Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould designed the initial Ruskinian Gothic structure, the west facade of which is still visible in the Robert Lehman Wing. The building has since expanded greatly, and the various additions—built as early as 1888—now completely surround the original structure. Metropolitan Museum of Art
“Designing Tomorrow: America’s World Fairs of the 1930’s” opened at the Museum of the City of New York December 5, featuring a core traveling exhibition organized by the National Building Museum, which was then expanded and adapted by the City Museum.
New York’s celebrated World’s Fair of 1939-40, held in the newly built Flushing Meadows Park in Queens, drew millions of visitors with its promise to reveal “The World of Tomorrow.” As one of the last – and the largest – of six world’s fairs that were held in the United States in the 1930s, the New York fair was the culmination of years of planning that looked to design, science, and technology to alleviate the bleak conditions of the Depression and create a brighter future.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art continues a longstanding holiday tradition with the presentation of its Christmas tree, a favorite of New Yorkers and visitors from around the world. A vivid eighteenth-century Neapolitan Nativity scene—embellished with a profuse array of diminutive, lifelike attendant figures and silk-robed angels hovering above—adorns the candlelit spruce. Recorded music and lighting ceremonies add to the enjoyment of the holiday display. Source: The Metropolitan Museum of Art
On one of the truly pivotal days in music history, Bob Dylan performed at the Newport Folk Festival today in 1965. Conflicting accounts of this performance exist, but regardless of whether the audience’s reaction was positive or negative, Dylan “going electric” was a defining moment in 20th century popular culture. Today’s image dates from a few weeks earlier, during the Columbia recording sessions that produced “Like A Rolling Stone.” Perhaps this photo marks the moment when Dylan was recording his long-unheard solo piano, waltz-time version of the song.

Swan, is the brain child of French choreographer, Luc Petton. This first-ever ballet, featuring performers with toe-shoes as well as webbed toes, [debuted] on June 6th in France and is definitely the black swan of performance art. It employs dancers of the feathery-variety – namely, swans!
I’ve loved and followed ballet ever since I was 10 years old; this, however, is an extremely unique dance. I’ve never seen anything like it. There may be genius involved here (somewhere), and one has to appreciate the artistic professionalism of the ballerina…if only for her ability to keep a straight face.
