If you’re like me and you have not bothered to go check out the New Museum yet, let me tell you it’s ok. I made it there this weekend, and let’s just say this grimy dollar bill is not worth the admission to go see “un-monumental”. Wait, maybe I am wrong? Maybe it’s that the name reflects the art so well that you find yourself saying, “you got to be kidding me.” The only thing it has going for itself is the observation deck on the 7th floor. I guess plans for the balcony restaurant must have been nixed. I was very surprised at the amount of space actually dedicated to the art, at least for this show that’s a good thing.
Oh and the really interesting thing is you can get a “artist membership” that cuts the members fee in half. All you need is a website that says you’re an artist.
