Billed as "a living history of American art" and modeled after London's Royal Academy, this 187-year-old community is housed in a stunning Fifth Avenue mansion that's brimming with more than 190 rotating works plucked from a 7,000-piece collection of paintings:
The admission tickets get you a day of access to the amazing blend of contemporary and 19th-century pieces that showcase of mix of emerging and mid-career painters who work with a variety of textures and materials -- including the current exhibits ending on May 5, "Seismic Shifts" and the "Annual," which feature contemporary artists.
The one-year membership gets you unlimited free admission for two adults, invitations to special openings, cafe discounts, and reciprocal benefits at select national museums.
The Cityscapes class series begins with outdoor sketches of selected city sites. Based on these observations, students will develop large-scale drawings in order to challenge their vision, improve their skills, and translate their initial perception of the city into a new arena between reality and fantasy.
