American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times at the New-York Historical Society
Now through January 7
These photographs convey the famous Kennedy allure, a world that’s simultaneously approachable, glittering, and rarefied. This well-curated exhibition charts JFK’s trajectory as a politician, as well as the cultural and historical pulse of the times, when photojournalism was at an apex. It’s a wonderful opportunity to observe a world both familiar and lost, and to reflect on where the country was—and is.
Frank Lloyd Wright at MOMA
Now through Oct 1
MoMA marks what would have been Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th birthday with this exhibition of more than 450 works he created between the 1890s and 1950s—including drawings, models, films, furniture, print media, paintings and photographs. Specific objects from the museum’s archives serve as starting blocks to investigate different stages of Wright’s career; famous works like Fallingwater and the Robie House as well as lesser-known projects are covered, as is Wright’s ascent to pop culture fame.
