Viewing dates have been extended for these three shows, take advantage!
1. Chris Ofili: Night and Day (New Museum)
Originally scheduled to close January 25th, this mid-career retrospective has been extended through February 1, 2015. Last week visitors were surprised to discover Chris Ofili himself in the lobby making buttons…you never know what might happen!
2. Matisse: The Cut-Outs (MoMA)
It’s just a wee extension – two days – but every day counts for this justifiably popular show. It’s a must-see, now on view through February 10, 2015. If I can handle the crowds (pro-tip: get the audio guide) you can too. It’s worth it.
3. Egon Schiele: Portraits (Neue Galerie)
This show, one of the most popular in the museum’s history, has been extended three months, through April 20, 2015. Learn how this Viennese wunderkind changed the status quo for portraiture for good at one of my favorite museums in Manhattan.
