The focus of Mmuseumm is to capture the stories of objects, from plastic cups to real eggs. Each object on display holds a history and is an artifact of meaning. The museum is only open on weekends but if you’re lucky a resident artist might grant you an inside peek during the week as well.
Coney Island is as much about the rides and amusements as is it about the beach and boardwalk. Luna Park offers everything from extreme thrills on the historic Cyclone rollercoaster to a hang glider, carousel, sea side swings, whackamole, arcades, and the Kiddie Park for the little ones. One design note, you’ll find Coney Island’s iconic “Funny Face” logo throughout, which dates back over 100 years to Steeplechase Park, one of the area’s original theme parks.
56 Bogart is a gigantic former factory that’s been converted into a four floor wonderland of artist’s studios and galleries. Always a good stop on the weekends and throughout the year for events like Bushwick Open Studios which attracts huge crowds of art-lovers and party-goers. Be sure to check out Studio 10, Momenta Art, Slag Gallery, Life on Mars Gallery, Soho 20 Gallery, Theodore:Art, and NURTUREart among other big names that call 56 Bogart home.
In addition to displaying internationally established artists, the Rubell Family Collection actively acquires, exhibits and champions emerging artists working at the forefront of contemporary art. www.seelocalart.com
