Museum Mile Festival
Time Out says
The 43rd Annual Museum Mile Festival is back this year with a slew of virtual programs, exhibition tours, live musical performances and activities for all ages.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Neue Galerie New York, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, The Jewish Museum, Museum of the City of New York, El Museo del Barrio and The Africa Center are all participating and streaming their respective programs on their social media platforms and websites.
Audiences can follow the hashtag #MMF2021 on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for cultural happenings throughout the day.
"The Museum Mile Festival has attracted joyful crowds of New Yorkers for more than 40 years," said Cultural Affairs Commissioner Gonzalo Casals. "This year, as our city recovers, Museum Mile will offer opportunities both to engage with live programming, and for people far and wide to participate online. Culture is at the center of New York's recovery, and we are grateful to the institutions and cultural workers who are committed to bringing us this staple of the city's cultural scene."
