Visit the National Museum of the American Indian

Sunday March 21st, 10:29 pm by TTSNYC.

Located in lower Manhattan, you’ll find the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House, which houses the National Museum of the American Indian. The building is absolutely stunning and the interior will amaze you (especially the rotunda). Admission is free making the museum a fun place to visit when you have some extra time of your hands.  Inside the museum you’ll find exhibits such as A Song for the Horse Nation and Ramp It Up: Skateboard Culture in Native America. Each exhibit is filled with detailed information, photographs and artifacts, some dating back hundreds of years. I especially enjoyed the horse exhibit as it showcased through videos the various types of horses used by certain tribes and how they were used. The exhibits are constantly changing, so go back once in a while to fully understand the culture of the American Indians!

Tim Burton @ The Museum Of Modern Art 2010

Thursday January 21st, 11:02 am by TTSNYC.

Tim Burton creator of The Nightmare Before Christmas, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (2005) and so many other movies and stories is now having a must see exhibition at the Museum Of Modern Art in New York City. “This exhibition explores the full range of his creative work, tracing the current of his visual imagination from early childhood drawings through his mature work in film. It brings together over seven hundred examples of rarely or never-before-seen drawings, paintings, photographs, moving image works, concept art, storyboards, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera from such films as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman, Mars Attacks!, Ed Wood, and Beetlejuice, and from unrealized and little-known personal projects that reveal his talent as an artist, illustrator, photographer, and writer working in the spirit of Pop Surrealism. The gallery exhibition is accompanied by a complete retrospective of Burton’s theatrical features and shorts, as well as a lavishly illustrated publication.” The exhibition has limited space and it’s a good idea to plan and get tickets ahead of time to secure your spot.
