Major performing arts institutions tend to launch their new seasons in the fall. This year the regular gets a boost with the opening of the Perelman Performing Arts Center, which hosts a series of programs to mark the completion of its campus at the World Trade Center. On the museum front, exhibits honor the long careers of Ed Ruscha, Judy Chicago and Barkley Hendricks while the worldwide celebration of Picasso continues. Also in the mix: a Brooklyn Museum retrospective on Brooklyn’s own Spike Lee. Click on the events below for all the details.
There’s an institution for every interest in the City. Wander through shows at big names such as the Guggenheim, MoMA and The Met, and discover smaller spots for culture and history throughout the boroughs.
