Sure, it’s nice to have a whole day to stroll around the Met, but that’s not what the Museum Mile Festival (Tuesday 10) is about. Since the party only runs for three hours, from 6 to 9pm, make the most of it by hitting these essential exhibits. As you dash between venues, catch local music groups including Asphalt Orchestra and Avenida B performing along the avenue, which is car-free from 82nd Street to 105th Street.

A pioneer of late-’60s Conceptual Art, Bochner plays with words and their associations, incorporating terms of both the four-letter and more refined varieties into his paintings, drawings and mixed-media works, in which the language is often as colorful as the art.
