Ever since my mom gave me my first Claude Monet book, I have been obsessed with going to museums. I have always loved getting lost in the galleries, people watching and meditating upon an inspired work. When The Museum of Modern Art asked me to help launch Prime Time, their brand new programming and outreach initiative aimed to engage older New Yorkers at the Museum, in the community, and online, I was absolutely thrilled. To kick off the initiative, MoMA is offering all visitors ages 65 and up free admission on Saturday, May 9, from 10:30 a.m to 5:30 p.m.
The day will also feature free gallery talks, entertainment and art making workshops, including a jewelry making workshop led by Debra Rapoport and a live figure drawing session featuring Joyce Carpati, Lana Turner, Debra and Carol Markel. The museum is also offering NYC residents 65 and up 50% off admission and $25 off new annual memberships for the the month of May!
The ladies are planning their outfits as we speak, so grab all your friends 65 and up and head to MoMA on Saturday for an inspiring day of creative activities.
