1.02-1.05…The Weekender


2013 was a year of exciting weekend activities and events. We waited on long lines before sunset to get our hands on a pastry and even Sherlock Holmes-ed our way through the streets of NYC to get our hands on a one-of-a-kind piece of Banksy artwork. Now it’s time to walk into the first weekend of 2014 and see what the new year has to offer us. Here’s some ideas on how to make the most of the first weekend in 2014!

Nahmad Contemporary is holding the Richard Prince: Monochromatic Jokes exhibit at their gallery until January 18th. The exhibition features pieces from his series spanning from 1987-1993. These paintings pay homage to the “borscht belt” humor of the 1950s, including pop-culture jokes transcribed onto canvas. Head over to the exhibit and get in some laughs as you view paintings that haven’t previously been shown in the United States.
