This week summer activities are in full swing, offering great ways to enjoy art and the outdoors. Don’t miss these seasonal events:
• Today, Monday, July 7, MoMA kicks offs Agora, a monthlong series of informal discussions between visitors and Museum educators that explore open-ended questions relating to visitors’ Museum experience. Set in The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, MoMA’s agora will meet Mondays throughout July at 3:00 p.m.
• Who says summer school isn’t fun? Take a class at MoMA and discover new ways to see the world through art. Registration is still open for two classes beginning Tuesday, July 8—Space, Time, and Architecture, 1970–Present and The Infinite Mirror: Artists Inspiring Artists. See MoMA.org/courses for details.
• On Thursday, July 10, join us for MoMA Nights, when the Museum galleries are open until 8:00 p.m. and musicians perform in the Sculpture Garden at 6:30 p.m., with dining and snack options available outside and in our Terrace 5 café. This week’s performance is by Computer Magic, the electronic/pop project of producer Danielle “Danz” Johnson.
