As we head into the holiday weekend—USA! USA!—new summer programming kicks off with the start of our annual MoMA Nights and Summergarden series. (Be sure to check out the entire line-up.) Here’s what’s happening:
• On Tuesday, enjoy art and the outdoors with Drawing in the Sculpture Garden: Exploring the Monumental—a free-with-admission gallery session that examines the effects of scale, medium, and perspective through sketching and discussion of works in our iconic Sculpture Garden.
• The weekly education program Agora—modelled on the open forum for students and philosophers in ancient Greece—starts Wednesday and continues through July. This series of drop-in conversations in the Sculpture Garden lets participants discuss themes and questions around modern and contemporary art.
• The 2015 season of MoMA Nights kicks off on Thursday, when the Museum stays open late and presents live music in the Sculpture Garden. This week features a performance by flutist and vocalist Elena Ayodele Pinderhughes.
• If indoors and air conditioned is more your speed, don’t miss the films on view in 3-D Summer. The John Wayne Western Hondo and the MGM musical Kiss Me Kate are screening through Saturday.
• On Saturday, Warm Up at MoMA PS1 continues with sets by Nicky Siano, Virgo Four, Cut Copy (DJ), Galcher Lustwerk b2b DJ Richard, and Bobbito Garcia aka Kool Bob Love.
• Join us in the Sculpture Garden on Sunday evening for the first of four Summergarden concerts. Presenting New Music for Mixed Ensembles, in conjunction with The Juilliard School, this free event takes place after regular Museum hours.
