Elsewhere in New York, The Whitney is sick of the doom and gloom pervading all of us and is offering two ways to beat the recession to a pulp.
First is that you can go to this email link www.whitney.org/www/promotion/email to sign up for their email list.. you’ll get a coupon to print out which will get you into the Whitney for a mere five bucks now through Saturday March 8th (the day – ahem – before my birthday btw just in case you didn’t know)
That’s a pretty good deal considering they’ve got some great exhibitions going on there (like artist Alex Bag’s newest installation, whom I have to admit I’m not familiar with but the description on the site looks fun)
The second way to beat the recession is to head to Whitney on Friday nights for their ‘pay what you can’ admission policy and go to their free concert series. This Friday February 20th it’s jazz musician Dave Burrell. https://daveburrell.com with Billy Martin on percussion.
