PARTIES

SOARING 20’S: DAYBREAKER

January 15 | 7-9am party | $25

PUBLIC Arts, 215 Chrystie Street, NY, NY 10002

“Welcome to the Future. 2020—a new year, a new decade (how wild is that?), a bright new era. And though we’ve been here before, on Wednesday, January 15th, you’re invited to bid adieu to the Roaring ’20s and dive into the Soaring ’20s. Together at PUBLIC Arts, we’ll rise and shine for a morning en blanc to celebrate all the resolutions and fresh starts that bud with the magical New Year. Soaking in all the electricity in the room, we’ll refresh with a collective yoga flow before blasting off into the stratosphere with a dance party to rock Spaceship Earth. So come as a clean slate (wear all white everythang), bring your most spectacular glasses, and get ready to pop the kombucha. It’s our future—let’s soar to beautiful new heights.” – DayBreaker

THE FULLNESS OF COLOR: 1960S PAINTING

Now – August 2 | $25

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 5th Ave, NY, NY 10128

“In the 1960s a group of avant-garde painters began to push abstraction in new directions, leading to the emergence of several divergent styles. The works in this presentation chart several of the varied and complex courses nonrepresentational art followed in the 1960s and into the 1970s. The Fullness of Color: 1960s Painting reflects the museum’s historical engagement with this artistic period, and, while far from comprehensive, seeks to provide a point of departure for future collection growth that may further illustrate the richness of 20th-century painting.” – The Guggenheim

LA TRAVIATA

Now – March 19 | $37+

Metropolitan Opera House, 30 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023

“Verdi’s La Traviata survived a notoriously unsuccessful opening night to become one of the best-loved operas in the repertoire. Following the larger-scale dramas of Rigoletto and Il Trovatore, its intimate scope and subject matter inspired the composer to create some of his most profound and heartfelt music. The title role of the “fallen woman” has captured the imaginations of audiences and performers alike with its inexhaustible vocal and dramatic possibilities—and challenges. Violetta is considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire.”
