To help reimagine this massive venue, Immersive Van Gogh has joined forces with Emmy Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated designer David Korins, known for his set design of countless Broadway hits including Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen.

Central Park Statues and Monuments- In person tours return to Central Park! The Park’s original design did not include statues and monuments—yet it is now home to 70 works of art.  Learn what inspired these memorials and the fascinating history of the veterans, philosophers, writers, and other great thinkers that have shaped Central Park. On this tour you’ll get an insider’s look at the Central Park Conservancy’s conservation efforts to ensure these statues and monuments remain for generations to come.

 

Spineless - Head to the NY Aquarium and prepare to be amazed by the bizarre but breathtaking animals in the "Spineless" exhibit. Pacific octopus, moon jellies, zombie worms, and more. Weird and wonderful invertebrates may lack backbones, but they’re the backbone of our ocean. See them up-close and learn why.

Jackson Pollock - In 1943 Jackson Pollock created what would be his largest-ever painting: "Mural", now on view at the Guggenheim. Although Pollock was not yet consistently working with canvases on the floor—pouring and dripping paint from all sides, as he would by 1947—Mural represents a pivotal moment in the evolution of Pollock’s artistic style. Informed partly by the Surrealists’ exploration of the unconscious mind, and by the work of Mexican muralists José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros, among others, Pollock began to challenge traditional notions of painting. He experimented with real and mythical imagery, dynamic gestures, and a vibrant palette in Mural, thereby further developing his idiosyncratic style as it approached abstraction. Mural has not been on view in New York in more than 20 years.
